These are the world leaders who will attend the 75th World Holocaust Forum this week
Kings, princes, presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers to converge on Jerusalem, commemorate the Holocaust. This is the full list.
Kings, princes, presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers will converge on Jerusalem this week for the Fifth World Holocaust Forum commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.
The race for hotel rooms has been frenetic and the prestigious hotels have mainly been booked on a "first come first served" basis with a few exceptions.
The King David Hotel lobby is bedecked with the flags of many nations. The Irish flag was removed when Ireland backed out of this significant event. The Irish Government has a tradition of blundering their relationship with Israel.
Another nation not sending its top leader is Poland. This is partly due to a disagreement with Israel over the Polish refusal to admit that many Poles not only assisted the Germans but killed Jews and took their properties in the aftermath of the war.
French President, Emmanuel Macron will be staying in the King David Hotel. Britain's Prince Charles will also he hosted at the King David Hotel.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will be staying at the David Citadel Hotel.
Because the American delegation was late in confirming their attendance, both Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, will be staying at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
The theme of the event will be ""Remembering the Holocaust: Fighting Antisemitism."
Auschwitz was liberated by the Red Army on 27 January, 1945. There were 7,000 survivors in the camp, mostly sick and dying.
An estimated 1,300,000 men, women and children were deported to Auschwitz between 1940-1945. Of these, at least 1,100,000 were murdered.
The Fifth World Holocaust Forum will take place at Yad Vashem and Israel's President Rivlin will host 40 of the world leaders at a dinner and discussion at the President's Residence.
The list of world leaders attending include:
US Vice President Mike Pence US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi President of France Emmanuel Macron President of Austria Alexander Van der Bellen Governor-General of Canada Julie Payette Governor-General of Australia David Hurley President of Russia Vladimir Putin Prince Charles of Britain King of the Netherlands Willem-Alexander King Felipe VI of Spain President of Italy Sergio Mattarella President of Slovenia Borut Pahor President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier President of Hungary János Áder President of Greece Prokopis Pavlopoulos Prime Minister of Sweden Stefan Löfven President of Iceland Guðni Th.

Muslims chant about killing Jews outside Jerusalem's Temple Mount
Police disperse the crowd at the holy site following Friday morning prayers; Hamas had called for mobilization at Al-Aqsa Mosque against 'Zionist occupation'
Hundreds of Muslims chanted about killing Jews outside the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem on Friday morning, prompting police to disperse the crowd.
The chants began as worshipers were leaving the mosque following prayers, Israel's Channel 13 reported.
No one was injured in clashes with police, who broke up the impromptu march where the chants occurred.
In footage from the march, many men can be heard shouting in Arabic, "Jews, remember Khaybar, the army of Muhammad is returning."
The cry relates to an event in the seventh century when Muslims massacred and expelled Jews from the town of Khaybar, located in modern-day Saudi Arabia.
They also shouted: "With spirit and blood, we will salvage Al-Aqsa" and "Jews, the army of Al-Aqsa is returning."
Authorities said officers broke up a procession that included what they called "nationalistic" chants at the holy site, after some 8,000 people concluded morning prayers.
"Police will not allow disorderly conduct at the Temple Mount and will act to prevent any unrest or nationalist calls," a statement from police said.
The Hamas terror group had on Wednesday called for Palestinians to "mobilize" during Friday's prayers against the "defilement" of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Hebron's Tomb of the Patriarchs by "the Zionist occupation." The group said Israeli authorities must be warned that "our sanctities are a red line that cannot be tolerated."
On Friday it welcomed the unrest at the compound, with a spokesman saying the morning prayers "support our people in their campaign against the Zionist occupation and thwart its racist plans."
Earlier this month police detained some 10 Muslim visitors at the compound after they disrupted public order.
The site is the holiest in Judaism as the site of the biblical Temples, and the third holiest for Muslims, who refer to it as the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound or the Noble Sanctuary.
It has been the scene of intermittent clashes between Muslim worshipers and police.
Under the 1994 peace treaty between the two countries, Israel recognizes Jordan as the custodian of the Temple Mount and Jerusalem holy sites.
Some Jewish activists have pushed for Israel to allow Jewish prayer on the Temple Mount as part of the country's commitment to freedom of religion.
But any talk or even rumors of changes to the status quo arrangement at the holy site are typically met with vociferous protest from the Muslim world, which has accused Israel of attempting to "judaize" the site or expand access for Jewish pilgrims.

New Holocaust exhibition to be held where the Final Solution was planned
In 1942, Nazi leaders met in a mansion in Wannsee, Berlin, to plan the Final Solution. 78 years later, a permanent exhibition shows the details of the conference and adds new research findings.By DEBORAH DAHAN
On January 20, 1942, 15 Nazi leaders gathered at a mansion in a south-suburb of Berlin, in Wannsee, to discuss and coordinate the details of the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question."Among those present at the conference were Adolf Eichmann and SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the chief of the Reich Security Main Office. The goal of the conference was to discuss the implementation of the Final Solution and to inform and secure support from, among others, government agencies.
At the conference, Heydrich indicated that about 11 million Jews in Europe would fall under the Final Solution. As such, the Wannsee conference became a symbol of the Holocaust.Today, exactly 78 years after the conference was held, the House of the Wannsee Conference is inaugurating a permanent exhibition.The inauguration ceremony will be attended by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and Hungarian Holocaust survivor Eva Fahidi.The new exhibition highlights new research findings on the Holocaust, including on the roles of the different participants of the conference, on Nazis' motives for implementing the Final Solution, and on the sociopolitical climate in Europe at the time that enabled the Holocaust to happen.One of the center pieces of the exhibition is the copy of the minutes of the 1942 conference, known as the "Wannsee Protocol." The copy was found by Robert Kempner, a US prosecutor in the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg, among seized files.
The inauguration will also be held on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the camp of Auschwitz. On the occasion, world leaders will gather in Jerusalem for the World Holocaust Forum, "Remembering the Holocaust, Fighting Antisemitism."
Israelis to gather in Jerusalem, wave US flags for MLK Day
Israelis to gather in Jerusalem, wave US flags for MLK Day
Democrats Abroad will gather at Jerusalem's First Station on Monday to mark Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Day. At the gathering, participants will read aloud King's "I've Been To The Mountaintop" speech. Read More Related Articles
This speech is as poignant and meaningful to Americans now seeking to bend the long, moral arc of the universe toward justice as it was in 1968 when it was delivered the day before MLK died," said Heather Stone, chair of Democrats Abroad in Israel.The event will take place at 12 p.m. and is open to the public. Details for the event have been posted on Facebook. Participants are asked to bring an American flag. In August, Democrats Abroad recruited hundreds of Israelis to protest the policies of US immigrant detention camps in solidarity with concurrent events that took place in the United States. That event took place in Tel Aviv. Also, in honor of MLK Day, WalletHub released a study of the gaps between black and white Americans across 21 key indicators of equality and integration in each of the 50 states and Washington, DC. The study found that when it comes to racial integration – the current integration levels of white and black Americans – the top three most integrated states are New Mexico, Hawaii and Wyoming. The least integrated areas are Iowa, Wisconsin and Washington, DC.Racial integration was determined by subtracting the values attributed to white and black Americans for a variety of metrics, using only the most recent data available. Positively integrated states have smaller gaps between black and white Americans in areas such as income, labor force participation, employment and home-ownership.The study also looked at the levels of racial progress achieved over time. The racial progress ranking placed Wyoming, Texas and Mississippi at the top and Maine, South Dakota and Iowa at the bottom.
Progress was determined by subtracting the values attributed to white and black Americans for the given metrics, using the oldest possible data available and the most recent. Based on the result, WalletHub calculated the percentage of progress made. Here, too, the study looked at metrics including income level, labor force participation, employment and home-ownership rates. The study comes on the heels of a recent Pew Research Center report that found 45% of Americans say the US has not done enough to give black Americans equal rights to white Americans, and that 58% of Americans think race relations are "generally bad." Furthermore, 53%, according to Pew, think race relations in the US are getting worse.In addition, a separate study released by Quinnipiac University in August 2019 found that more than half (51%) of US voters think that US President Donald Trump is racist. When broken down by race, the private poll showed that 46% of white voters think that Trump is racist, compared with 50% who say he is not and 4% who were undecided. Some 80% of black voters and 55% of Hispanic voters say he is racist. "In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. introduced the world to his dream of a colorblind society – one that focuses on character, not on complexion," WalletHub wrote in the introduction to its study."America has certainly come closer to realizing Dr. King's vision. But segregation and discrimination continue to persist."
