Trying to slip past the weekend press deadlines, the Obama administration released a major policy shift regarding Jerusalem late Friday. The new approach is sure to please the Palestinians and their supporters.

The majority of Jews in this country supported Obama. Clearly he is not a supporter of Israel. Go figure.

The current administration edited the following phrase out of a “legally required waiver under to continue to delay the May 31, 1999 deadline for moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.”

“My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem.”

Therefore, Obama has no intention of moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. Pallies will be very happy.

Nearly identical memos like this have been issued every six months for the last decade. Standard procedure, no big deal, right? Well in the Bush years the memo contained the sentence,

“My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem.”

The Obama team has edited that passage out. This explains the Friday evening release. Congress should revisit the Jerusalem Embassy Act and remove the loophole that has allowed this charade to continue for ten years. Meanwhile the president should explain exactly what his policy is on this issue, and why he is not committed to beginning the process of moving the embassy.

He wants the Palestinian capital to be Jerusalem.

Means nothing. U.S. Jews will support Obama in overwhelming numbers no matter what his policy is toward Israel. Death wish.

Guess he sounds so good not supporting them that they can’t help themselves from supporting him. /s

They need to explain EXACTLY why they took that sentence OUT, and if they hem and haw about it and say it was a “clerical error,” they need to say exactly when they will put that sentence back IN.
