In December, “Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer endorsed President-elect Trump’s proposal to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.” Now, following Obama’s betrayal of Israel in his refusal to veto UN Resolution 2334, three Senators have introduced the “Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city.”
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has previously threatened that if the US moves its embassy to Jerusalem, “the Palestinians will take steps in response”; Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian envoy to the United Nations, said “he could make the life of US diplomats ‘miserable’ in retaliation for the move.”
America is expected to appease jihadist regimes and Islamic thugs, and be obedient out of fear. Nothing, however, will ever appease jihadists but the conquest and subjugation of infidel nations (the House of War) and the obliteration of Israel.
“Sens. Cruz, Heller, and Rubio Introduce Bill To Move U.S. Embassy To Jerusalem”, by Christine Rousselle, Town Hall, January 3, 2017:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) have introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act, which would move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, and therefore recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city. Currently, the U.S. Embassy is located in Tel Aviv.
In a statement, Sen. Cruz said that it was “finally time” to move the embassy.
“Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Sen. Cruz said. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth – let alone the reality that Jerusalem is the appropriate venue for the American embassy in Israel – is shocking in some circles. But it is finally time to cut through the double-speak and broken promises and do what Congress said we should do in 1995: formally move our embassy to the capital of our great ally Israel. I am pleased to co-sponsor this legislation with Senator Heller and Senator Rubio, and I look forward to working with the Trump administration to make this happen.”
In 1995, Congress passed “The Jerusalem Embassy and Relocation Act,” which was supposed to move the embassy to Jerusalem. More than 20 years later, this has not yet happened…
