Congressmen Once Again Try to Force US Embassy Move to Jerusalem

Pro-Israeli Congressmen have introduced another bill to force the government to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something that the government has no intention of doing it so long as the Palestinian Authority claims part of the capital.

The new Congressional bill has no chance of bearing fruit but is good political hay for the folks in the home districts of the sponsors, Republican Reps. Trent Franks of Arizona and Doug Lamborn of Colorado, and Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman of California.

A Congressional law passed in 1995 requires the embassy to be located in Jerusalem but has a nifty six-month renewable waiver for the president to postpone the action for “national security” reason,” which is exactly what every president has done for more nearly two decades.

    While I am in favor of Israel's capitol being moved to Jerusalem, I'm not sure any of these congressmen could find Jerusalem, yet alone Israel on a world map!

  2. "National Security" jajaja, Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel and all the jews of the world, the US congress has not right to decide Israel's capital.

  3. why insult our friends?

  4. Yechiel Baum says:

    Israel has always been the capital of Israel. If tax payers want to pay for the commute every time Ambassador wants to meet with the Israel government, the budget department should investigate these overages. As to recognizing Jerusalem as the capital, Israel should consider New York as the capital of the USA since it was not stolen from the true owners who are the Native Indians. Let justice be for all.
