Bravo! Senators Cruz and Rubio push moving U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

I like it

The latest measure, introduced Tuesday as the new Congress convened, would withhold funding from the State Department until it makes the move.

“Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel,” Cruz said in a written statement. “Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s vendetta against the Jewish state has been so vicious that to even utter this simple truth — let alone the reality that Jerusalem is the appropriate venue for the American embassy in Israel — is shocking in some circles.

“But it is finally time to cut through the double-speak and broken promises and do what Congress said we should do in 1995: formally move our embassy to the capital of our great ally Israel.”

The measure is also sponsored by Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Dean Heller of Nevada.
