Obama’s stance was proof that neither the U.S. nor the world recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Rudeineh told the agency.

The Jerusalem Embassy Act Explained

Congress in 1995 passed a law recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and stating that “the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999.” An inbuilt waiver authority allowed the president to postpone the move, in the interests of “national security,” for consecutive six-monthly periods. Reflecting the strong level of support in the U.S. for Israel and for Israel’s claim to Jerusalem, the Jerusalem Embassy Act passed 374-37 in the House and 93-5 in the Senate.

President Clinton was not enthusiastic about the legislation, which he warned “could hinder the peace process.” He allowed it to become law, but without his signature.

Should the Jerusalem embassy not be opened by May 31, 1999, the law stated, the State Department would be barred from spending 50 percent of the funds allocated to buy and maintain official properties abroad during that fiscal year. The due date came and went, and then on June 17  Clinton issued the first “Suspension of Limitations Under the Jerusalem Embassy Act” notice.

President Bush continued the policy every six months, to the continuing frustration of pro-Israel lawmakers who argued that the intent of Congress was for the waiver would only be justified in the case of a genuine security threat. A striking difference between Obama’s waiver notifications and those of President Bush is that in Bush’s case, he inserted into the legal jargon a sentence stating:

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

The phrase appeared in all 16 Bush waiver notifications.

Obama’s latest announcement was welcomed by Palestinian Authority spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh. The official P.A. news agency, Wafa, said he called it “encouraging and … consistent with President Obama’s vision of a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders.”

Obama’s stance was proof that neither the U.S. nor the world recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, Rudeineh told the agency.

“The world has made it clear that East Jerusalem has been occupied since 1967 and that it is the capital of the State of Palestine in the framework of the two-state solution.”

Israel insists that Jerusalem is its “eternal, indivisible” capital, a claim it says dates back some 3,000 years, to the reign of the biblical King David from the city.   Historians note that while Jerusalem was fallen under the control of many empires and powers, no nation other than the Jews ever declared it its capital.

The Palestinians want Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state.

“Jerusalem is the crux of the question of Palestine and the key to war and peace in the region,” the Palestine Liberation Organization’s mission to the United Nations declares on its Web site.”

  1. US Supplies Israel With Bunker-Busting Bombs
    Saturday, 24 Sep 2011 10:07 AM
    By Gary Cohen

    A confirmed military hardware sale from the United States to Israel will not only strenghten the Jewish state’s security, it is expected to bolster President Obama’s odds of luring more American Jewish voters in 2012.

    As reported in The New York Times, the el-Defense Security Cooperation Agency confirms the United States government has sold to Israel bombs which have the ability to incinerate buried targets, including suspected sites in Iran which are believed to be part of Tehran’s nuclear weapons program.

    The agency said in a statement, “This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country.”

    American officials point out that as a measure of the sensitivity of the matter, the report underlines that Israel had requested the United States not make public any paperwork concerning the arms transfers, including if such documentation would have been requested under the Freedom of Information Act. [It was a sensitive matter..so the NY Times was given the information to print to increase votes! One Bomb, One Vote Obama! Will Israel confirm please.]

  2. “SEE WHAT OBAMA PROMISES ARABS AFTER 2012 ELECTION”
    “DEMOCRATS FEAR TREATMENT OF ISRAEL IS VOTING LIABILITY”
    By Aaron Klein
    September 28, 2011

    “The Obama administration told the Palestinian Authority it cannot significantly help advance a Palestinian state until after the 2012 presidential elections, a top PA official told WND.

    The official, however, said the U.S. will press for a Palestinian state quickly if President Obama is re-elected.

    “The main message we received from the U.S. is that nothing will happen in a serious way before the 2012 elections,” said the official.”

  3. “TODAY’S EXISTENTIAL THREAT TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL”
    “Aaron Klein Offers Sensational Holy Land Investigative Expose”
    September 28, 2011

    “Subtitled “How Enemies Within and Without Threaten the Jewish Nation’s Survival,” “The Late Great State of Israel” reveals what no other book, journalist or news agency has the courage and first-hand knowledge to say: Israel is dying. And those responsible are not just the terrorists plotting its destruction, but also the political elites within its own borders. Drawing on in-the-field reporting and research that has brought him to the front lines of the Middle East news cycle, acclaimed journalist Aaron Klein spells out the shocking truth.

    “The greatest threat, the one that magnifies all others exponentially, is that only a few in Israel or abroad are aware of the real extent of the dangers facing the Jewish country – both from within and without,” writes Klein.

    The book, which Hal Lindsey has called a “must-read for anyone seeking to understand the Mideast,” is a clarion call for all supporters of Israel. The great Mideast democracy is headed down a road that, if not altered, may result in catastrophe, warns Klein. In this groundbreaking work, Klein shows how Israel is often its own worst enemy. And how Hamas, Iran and Palestinian terrorists are poised to end the democracy once and for all.

    And if Israel falls, America will be next in line, argues Klein.”

  4. Communist Panetta trying to get rid of Netanyahu? Who would have guessed that this Obama operative is trying to do that? Obama’s actions have proven that they are on the side of Palestine. He only voted against Palestine..hoping to get another 4 years. Hopefully Panetta only has one more year too..when the stupid Congress confirmed his nomination overwhelmingly even though they knew his communist connections! Another snake in the administration.

    Panetta trying to unseat Israeli leader?
    Democratic Party strategists apparently behind Jewish state’s social protests

    October 04, 2011

    Some in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office are taking comments this week by U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta as a direct assault against the Israeli leader.

    Upon arriving in Israel on Sunday, Panetta argued Israel carried a portion of the blame for its deteriorating relationship with Turkey and Egypt.”There’s not much question in my mind that they (Israel) maintain that [military] edge,’‘ he said. ”But the question you have to ask is: Is it enough to maintain a military edge if you’re isolating yourself in the diplomatic arena?”

    Panetta made the remarks at a press conference. He was flanked by Israel’s defense minister, Ehud Barak, who is also an opposition leader.

    There have been indications Democratic Party operatives may be attempting to unseat Netanyahu.

    According to an investigative report in Israel’s Maariv newspaper, the country’s mass social protests were engineered by a group of media strategists directed by
    prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry and others
    .Greenberg reportedly is working with Israeli strategists who were behind left-wing leader Ehud Barak’s successful race for prime minister in 1999. Greenberg himself helped to run Barak’s campaign.

    That group is the Institute for New Economic Thinking, or INET. Billionaire activist George Soros is INET’s founding sponsor, having provided a reported $25 million over five years to support INET activities.

  5. Israel’s Peres warns attack on Iran getting ‘closer’
    Nov. 5 Snips

    Israeli President Shimon Peres warned on Sunday that an attack on Iran is becoming increasingly likely, days before a report by the UN’s nuclear watchdog on Iran’s nuclear programme is due.

    The possibility of a military attack against Iran is now closer to being applied than the application of a diplomatic option,” Peres told the Israel Hayom daily. “We must stay calm and resist pressure so that we can consider every alternative,” he added. “I don’t think that any decision has already been made, but there is an impression that Iran is getting closer to nuclear weapons.”

    His comments came after he warned in an interview aired by Israel’s privately-owned Channel Two television on Saturday that an attack on Iran was becoming “more and more likely.”

    In recent days, speculation in Israel has grown about the possibility of a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, with Haaretz newspaper reporting that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak were seeking cabinet support for an attack.

    On Sunday, Haaretz reported that US officials had failed to secure a commitment from Israel that it would coordinate any attack plans with Washington.

  6. Gulf Arab States Share Israel’s Fears Over Iran’s Nuclear Program
    November 06, 2011

    DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Among the many alliances of convenience in the Middle East, one is so unusual that the partners can barely hint about it publicly: Israel and the Gulf Arab states linked by shared fears over Iran’s nuclear program.

    The next moves are expected after the U.N. nuclear watchdog agency releases an intelligence report Tuesday to its 35 board members.

    Early leaks from diplomats suggest the document will indicate Iran has made computer models of a nuclear warhead and conducted other weapons-related work, which would strongly reinforce suspicions that Iran is working toward atomic weapons. Iran denies it seeks to develop nuclear arms and claims its program, including uranium enrichment labs, is only for energy and research.

    Israel is widely believed to have the only nuclear weapons arsenal in the Mideast — although it refuses to either confirm or deny that — and an Iranian bomb would sharply reorder the balance of power and be seen as a direct challenge to Israel’s survival.
