Israel’s Ambassador: Move the U.S. Embassy to Yerushalayim


ron-dermerIsrael’s ambassador to the U.S., Ron Dermer, has called on Congress to “finally” move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim. Lawmakers have for years tried to move the U.S. embassy to Yerushalayim, but successive administrations have been reluctant to formalize the move.

Dermer told U.S. lawmakers at a Capitol Hill event marking Yom Yerushalayimon May 29 that it is “finally” time for the United States to acknowledge Yerushalayim as Israel’s “undivided” capital and to relocate the U.S. embassy there. “In doing so you will not undermine the prospects for peace, you will strengthen the chances for peace because for peace to hold in our region it has to be based on truth,” Dermer said.

“We all want to see peace happen. The best way we can do that is by beginning to speak the truth, by defending Jerusalem and defending the eternal connection that we have to our ancient capital….Jerusalem is the heart and soul of the Jewish people,” he said, adding that Jerusalem will never again be divided. “It is the center of our national life and the center of our religious life.”

  1. Good idea if you like the forum of plenty to be a sapped future. Realistically, Jerusalem should not be a political city. It is a religious destination. Land used for political gain is not honor distributed for human voice and feeling when Time is honored by Voices of Just Torah Skill.

    If you like the fact that Obama is running Israel’s future into the ground, give this idea running thought. Nothing else more than a simple reassignment of the hope of American honor to a new location in the New Jerusalem can fix all the futures of good luck for bad voices of simple restitution.

    Seen by the interests of Torah, this is not really a capital management issue. Jerusalem is a city for human dynasty, not rewording the constitution of human ingenuity.

    Lets give this idea where it lies: To the radicals who want to accelerate the idea that Israel has its sovereign issue in the hope of Arab Free Dynasties in the holy land. That may be honorable, but Torah teaches us that Hashem guides the people and not the energy of the craving for lost imagination.

    Seems to me this is just the cape chasing the tack. And I would prefer to sit on no thorns.
