Trump signs waiver delaying move of US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem

June 2, 2017

1060x600-0774bb7a30f0d38aa5471c0dda27bf90President Trump signed a waiver Thursday that delays his campaign promise to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the White House said Thursday.

Trump’s waiver suspends the move under the Jerusalem Embassy Act for six months. The law, passed in 1995, required the embassy to be moved to Jerusalem by the end of the 20th century, or else the State Department’s building budget would be cut in half.

However, the law allowed the president to sign six-month waivers if it did not serve the national interest to move the embassy. Every president since the bill became law — Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and now Trump — all signed waivers.

During the campaign, Trump promised to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He maintained that promise up until the night before the election when he told a Times of Israel reporter, “You know I’m not a person who breaks promises.”

    Wrong move, It will serve no purpose in the long run except in the efforts of those who want to manipulate as they do in order to stop Israel in any form. They are happy and will say anything Trump wants to hear but it doesn’t make it true.

    President Trump should move on siting our embassy in Jerusalem. There is no honest desire on the part of the “Palestinians” to ever honor peace with Israel. They’ve refused to do so many times in the past and will continue with
    their charade of belonging there. They are happy to keep receiving aid money and committing terrorism. They will continue to kill no matter
    what anyone does.

    I will give the President his six months then I expect to see action. This is
    way past time to acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. The
    only thing I can think of that might cause such a delay is if he has negotiations
    underway to try and achieve peace? I do not have any hope of that in the
    middle east with the hatred sponsored by so many factions over there.
