Trump considers when and how to move U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem: Pence [Merged]

Recommended Posts

President Donald Trump is actively considering “when and how” to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Vice President Mike Pence said on Tuesday.

Pence made the comment in remarks at Israel’s Mission to the United Nations at an event celebrating the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ vote calling for the establishment of a Jewish state.

Oh yeah, this is a brilliant idea /sarc 

Why not? We're on the verge of biblical warfare, why not make the situation even more biblical?

It's all about that city, Al-Quds. Pay attention guys and gals. Watch Iran.

US President Donald Trump is “actively considering when and how” to move the American embassy to Jerusalem, Vice President Michael Pence said Tuesday, placing the issue back on the agenda six months after Trump signed a waiver keeping the embassy in Tel Aviv.

Pence’s comment came at an event put on by the Israeli mission at the UN to mark 70 years since the passing of UN Resolution 181 on November 29, 1947. That vote paved the way for Israel’s creation by calling for the partition of Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish and Arab state. Tuesday’s event took place at the Queens Museum, where the original UN vote – which passed 33 to 13, with 10 abstentions – took place.

After Trump signed the waiver, a White House spokesman said moving the embassy was a matter of  “when, not if.”

Congress passed a law in 1995 mandating moving the embassy but stipulated that each US president could sign a waiver every six months that would effectively keep the embassy in Tel Aviv. Trump will have to make a decision within the next couple weeks whether to sign it once again.

In his comments, Pence said Israel did not need a resolution to call for its existence “because its right to exist is self-evident and timeless,” adding: “While Israel was built by human hands, it’s impossible not to see the hand of heaven here, too.”
