US State Department Still Refusing to Say Jerusalem Is Capital of Israel

jerusalem

MR. VENTRELL: Well, right now, Nicole –

QUESTION: Yes.

MR. VENTRELL: — the situation is that we have an Embassy in Tel Aviv that represents our interests with the Government of Israel but that the issue of Jerusalem is one that has to be resolved between the two parties. That’s all I can say on this.

Anything else? Thank you.

  1. This administration is run by a pro Palestinian, anti Semite. Obama believes Jerusalem belongs to the Jordanian refugees. A vote for Obama is a vote for the destruction of Israel.

  2. Ethan Perks says:

    Presidents have been saying for years that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel as have both parties. And for just as long the State Department has refused to acknowlege it. We know that State is dominated by Arabists.

  3. Batya Casper says:

    I fully agree with Randy Goldwater. A vote for Obama is a vote for the destruction of Israel. The Democratic party simply borrowed Jerusalem for last night's shindig, just as Obama borrowed Israel's back for his Aipec talk. As we all remember, he went back on his word then, too. Obama stands firmly for himself first, and for the Arab side of the Arab Israeli conflict, second. It is his right to do so. If only he'd only keep his feet from shifting, we'd at least be able to respect him as a man with a stand.

  4. That is Politics for you ""STAY ON THE PICKET FENCE WITHOUT FALLING ON IT""OUCH;OUCH TEETORING POLITICIANS::ALLELIUA.

  5. Another State Dept weasel. This another, among many depts that need New broom sweeping.

  6. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    And the kapo whore debbie immediately runs to chairman barack's defense. Even her own synagogue booed her out during her last appearance. I wonder how much she is getting paid to stoke the ovens. soros taught her well.

  7. Can ANYONE tell me why 98% of the Jewish American People vote for democrats. It just boggles my mind. I mean, just lookat Bloomberg, Mayor of NYC, is one of the Biggest Anti-Israeli Jew I have ever seen or heard of. Someone please answer.

  8. Chaiya Eitan says:

    They know that the Platform is nothing but window dressing – it means nothing – you have to go into the store to really see what they have. I love how they keep repeating the same sentence – again and again and again – as if it's some kind of mantra. The Consulate in Jerusalem serves the Arab population….not Jews.

  9. How can anyone believe that the Obama administration would, if given a second chance, be of benefit to Israel. Just look at the actual vote at the DNC in opposition to God and the status of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Then add to that the rude behavior of Obama in regard to Netanyahu.
    Being a Jew and a pacifist is one thing but voting for a man who would ignore the threat to Israel is quite another.

  10. I did not know I was wtching the democratic party yesterday I thought it was a fringe nazi party.

    And it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz who approved bumping Rabbi Wolpe's prayer until after all the delegates' votes were counted for the nomination. That took hours, and people left in droves, even the media. So by the time Wolpe was invited on stage, there was no one there but the cleaning crew! Have you seen the CSPAN video? The rabbi is giving the prayer to a hall of empty chairs, over the sound of vacuum cleaners! And did Debbie stay to give moral support to the rabbi? Of course not? Did Schumer stay? Not a chance! What a fitting end to the anti-Semitic spectacle earlier in the day. I want every major news network to AIR THE PRAYER in prime time, so the entire country can see how the DNC rewards its loyal Jewish base!

    Obama is dominated by Arabists. He's got a special thing with the Muslim brotherhood. Went to an anti semite anti white anti America anti Israel church of hate & has a boss who's an unrepentant Nazi youth (George Soros). Grew up a muslim communist, mentored by Frank Marshall Davis hardcore (all of the above) & commie propagandist, Took God & Jerusalem out of the platform & opened the DNC this year with radical Muslims doing 2 hr opening prayers. There's a lot more but you get my drift. That's BHO. It's who he is.
