Some evangelicals believe the transfer of the embassy and the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital will help bring about the so-called Rapture, an event in which they believe all Christians, living and dead, will join with God, the Independent wrote.
Evangelical Christians supported Trump's decision to relocate the U.S. embassy, according to CNN.
But would larger countries like Russia, China and Western European nations make the move?
"I would be very surprised," Cristol said. "I would be astounded, frankly, if the major Western European powers, with the possible exception of the United Kingdom, would move their embassies any time soon."
Cristol mentioned the UK as a possibility because the current British government is more conservative than other European powers and it "has a fairly large, but often overlooked, Christian constituency that is highly supportive of Israel," he said.
Cristol added that Russia and China are also unlikely candidates. Those countries will continue to do business with Israel regardless of where their embassies are located, he said, "so why take the risk?"
If any of them do make future moves to Israel, however, they will need to do what the Trump administration did not do, Alterman said, "which is to explicitly state that the embassy is located in West Jerusalem and endorse the idea of East Jerusalem becoming the capital of a future Palestinian state."
Going forward, Israel will surely encourage more countries to move their embassies, Alterman said.
And for some countries "on a practical level, Jerusalem is the capitol of Israel," Cristol added.
Most Israeli government officials and offices are located in Jerusalem, so countries with embassies in Tel Aviv have to travel to do business.
Relocating to Jerusalem is a smart money move for smaller states, making things more "effective and efficient," Cristol said.
"Tel Aviv is only about an hour away," he added, "but also sort of a world away."
