OBAMA HEARTS ISRAEL, PLEDGES EMBASSY MOVE TO JERUSALEM

Obama told the AIPAC conference in Washington that “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.  During a speech Wednesday to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-israel lobbying group, Obama called for Jerusalem to become the site of the U.S. embassy, a frequent pledge for U.S. presidential candidates.

    Jerusalem.

    Israel annexed the city in 1967 and proclaimed it to be Israel’s eternal, undivided capital.
    Palestinians seek East Jerusalem as their capital.

    Successive U.S. Administrations have maintained that the parties must determine the fate of Jerusalem in negotiations. H.Con.Res. 60, June 10, 1997, and S.Con.Res. 21, May20, 1997, called on the Administration to affirm that Jerusalem must remain the undivided capital of Israel.

    Congress has repeatedly prohibited official U.S. government business with the PA in Jerusalem and the use of appropriated funds to create U.S. government offices in Israel to conduct business with the PA and allows Israel to be recorded as the place of birth of U.S. citizens born in Jerusalem.

    These provisions are again in H.R. 2764, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, passed in both houses on December 19, 2007.

    The State Department does not recognize Jerusalem, Israel as a place of birth for passports ….because the U.S. government does not recognize all of Jerusalem as part of Israel.

    “A Republican administration will ensure that the U.S. Embassy is moved to Jerusalem by May 1999.”
    — Republican Party platform of 1996

    “Immediately upon taking office, the next Republican president will begin the process of moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.”

    — Republican Party platform of 2000

    “Republicans continue to support moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.”
    — Republican Party platform of 2004
    “We support Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel and moving the American embassy to that undivided capital of Israel.”
    — Republican Party platform of 2008

    “My understanding is the policy of our nation has been a desire to move our embassy ultimately to the capital. That is something which I would agree with. But I would only want to do so and to select the timing in accordance with the government of Israel.”
    — Mitt Romney, interview with CNN, July 29, 2012
