Congress Urges Trump to Move U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

A delegation of more than 100 members of Congress wrote to President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday, urging him to relocate the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem “as soon as you take office,” according to correspondence obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The lawmakers wrote to back Trump’s campaign pledge to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a policy shift the Obama administration has opposed.

    The 12th Imam

    is sure

    to put

    a stop

    to this


    it can


    even if he has to call on his friend

    the Ayatollah Khamenei to call out the IRGC.

  • I don’t think the Trump administration should consider this without consultation with Israel. Israel might have its own security concerns why it may not be a wise thing to move the Embassy at this particular time. To do it just for the sake of “symbolism” is stupid, imo.

    I’m sure they have consulted in great detail.

    This is push getting a little closer to shove.

    We’re getting closer to the sticking point and I say the muzzies will cave or suffer the inevitable consequences of their long long long intransigence.
    I see a few leaders of regime changes in the future. I see a lot of people encouraged to in Ignatieffs exhortation to Rise Up!!!

    It’s going to be great amusement.

    Here’s an idea: Let the Israeli’s decide where they want foreign embassies.

    I know, balls and all that.

      Israel made that clear long ago: in their capital which is Jerusalem.

      • I agree that it should be in Jerusalem. But timing is everything. And if there was anything that characterized the failure of the former “Bush Republicans”, it was timing.

    This would be earth shaking and make me very, very happy. Go Donald go!!!
