Netanyahu says Israel is Arabs' 'ally' against Iran

Also inaugurated in the event before Brazil's congress in the capital, Brasilia, was Bolsonaro's vice president, retired general Hamilton Mourao.

Though Bolsonaro promised after the election to be a leader to all of Brazil's 200 million people, on the eve of the inauguration, he tweeted a vow to rid Brazilian schools of "Marxist trash", slipping back into the divisive rhetoric that got him elected.

Bolsonaro was elected president at the end of October, defeating his rival Fernando Haddad of the centre-left Workers' Party by a comfortable margin in the second-round runoff.

The Social Liberal Party candidate and former longtime congressman replied to Trump's congratulations, saying, "Together, under God's protection, we shall bring prosperity and progress to our people!"

"As previously stated during our campaign, we intend to transfer the Brazilian Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem".

For example, just before his inauguration, Mr Bolsonaro told the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he would follow Mr Trump's lead and move his country's embassy to Jerusalem.

Injecting steam into the sluggish Brazilian economy, which analysts say will require broad austerity measures, may be tougher since mediating between the country's three dozen parties will demand compromise and insider politicking new to Bolsonaro.

He was propelled to victory by his campaign promises to curb Brazil's rampant corruption and crime.


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Tuesday in Brasilia.

While his government, which takes over on Wednesday, features a US-trained free market advocate as economy minister, and a star anti-corruption judge as justice minister, almost a third of the 22 ministerial posts are held by ex-military men.

Netanyahu, according to the official, is considering attending the World Economic Forum in Davos in January to meet there with Trump, who is likely to attend.

Brazil's new President Jair Bolsonaro gestures after receiving the presidential sash from outgoing President Michel Temer at the Planalto Palace, in Brasilia, Brazil January 1, 2019.

The 63-year-old former Army captain has pledged to tackle street crime by arming civilians and believes police officers who kill suspects should be decorated rather than investigated. "Myth! Myth!"- a nickname that began years ago with internet memes of Bolsonaro and became more common during last year's campaign. A poll by the Datafolha survey firm found 61 percent of Brazilians against Bolsonaro's decree.

"This is a historic visit, the first time an Israeli prime minister has visited Brazil and we are forging a great alliance here with a huge super power of almost a quarter billion people", said the Prime Minister in a joint statement following the meeting.

Trump's critics, including some in his own party, have argued that the pullout of the 2,000 USA troops in Syria harms US interests, cedes influence to Russian Federation and Iran, and endangers Israel.
