Obama’s State Department: Moving U.S. Embassy to Yerushalayim Is Not a Good Idea

15

The current U.S. State Department spokesperson, John Kirby, said Wednesday, “We continue to believe…that moving the embassy to Jerusalem is not a good idea. It’s not constructive to the overall peace process. It could actually put some of our people, some of our troops, those that work at the embassy, in harm’s way….If the next administration wants to move forward, that’s certainly their prerogative, but under President Obama…we don’t support that.”

Kirby was then asked by a reporter, “In your conversations with allies like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the Arab countries, have you been warned or counseled against moving the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem?”

Kirby responded, “I’m not aware of any specific warning….It could potentially be provocative there and elsewhere in the region.”

  1. The Obama administration, which endorsed a Judenrein Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem, now objects to moving the U.S. embassy to a Jerusalem site that even the U.N. doesn’t say the Arabs have any claim to? I’m shocked – shocked! – that they’d say such a thing.

  3. Why are we even interested in hearing what this administration has to say. They have shown their true colours. By the way Obama himself promised it but that was an election promise which doesn’t have to be kept!

  4. Hillary lost, get over it. We don’t need your stupid advice. There is a reason why you idiots lost the election. GET OUT!

  5. The Obama State Department has 14 days left, so their opinion is worthless. In fact, saying moving the embassy is a bad idea will hopefully encourage the Trump State Department to make the move even faster.

  6. I don’t think the American Embassy should be moved, not for the bogus reasons mentioned, but for the fact that it will ignite violence and Jews will die. The move is not worth one Jewish life.

    • The Arabs don’t need an excuse to ignite violence. Whether or not the US moves its embassy won’t make a difference in their hatred against Jews and their desire to kill us, R”L.
