Oscar Arias makes it clear below that what Costa Rica has done is back the strong horse, bearing out again Osama’s now-famous dictum. “El Salvador to move embassy from Jerusalem,” from the Hizballah News Agency, aka Reuters, with thanks to JS:
El Salvador will move its embassy in Israel from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday, in a move bound to upset Israel and please Arab nations.
El Salvador would have been the only country in the world left with an embassy in Jerusalem after neighboring Costa Rica announced on August 16 it would pull its diplomatic mission out of the city.
A US ally which has a small contingent of troops in Iraq, El Salvador is governed by conservative President Tony Saca, who is of Palestinian Christian descent….
Costa Rican President Oscar Arias, a former Nobel Peace Prize winner, said earlier this month he made the decision to change the embassy’s location to win more friends in the Middle East and comply with UN resolutions.
