U.S. Embassy Jerusalem, Israel
Watching the history of prophecy becoming present day realities!

 

 

Since 1995 the United States under the presidency of Bill Clinton has "officially" been trying to establish Jerusalem as the location of the U.S. Embassy in Israel by establishing the United States Jerusalem Embassy Act.

This move is dependant on Jerusalem officially becoming the Capital City in Israel. But this declaration, (even though it's widely held by most Israelites that Jerusalem has always been the capital.) is embroiled in the Mideast Peace process. Calling Jerusalem the capital would mean a full recognition as Israel being a sovereign state.

I suspect it wont be much longer (probably under Obama's watch) that the Israeli leaders will finally make the stand against the Islamic influences that have invaded the Jewish culture to the point of insisting the promises made by God to Abraham through the blessings given to his son Isaac was theirs to share. But of course they are dead wrong and will always be under the promises given to the illegitimate son of Abraham, Ishmael.

 

(9)In 1990, the Congress unanimously adopted Senate Concurrent Resolution 106, which declares that the Congress "strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic and religious group are protected".

(12)The Agreement on the Gaza Strip and the Jericho Area was signed May 4, 1994, beginning the five-year transitional period laid out in the Declaration of Principles.

(13)In March 1995, 93 members of the United States Senate signed a letter to Secretary of State Warren Christopher encouraging "planning to begin now" for relocation of the United States Embassy to the city of Jerusalem.

(14)In June 1993, 257 members of the United States House of Representatives signed a letter to the Secretary of State Warren Christopher stating that the relocation of the United States Embassy to Jerusalem "should take place no later than....1999".

(15)The United States maintains its embassy in the functioning capital of every country except in the case of our democratic friend and strategic ally, the State of Israel.

(16)The United States conducts official meetings and other business in the city of Jerusalem in de facto recognition of its status as the capital of Israel.

The United States Jerusalem Embassy Act


Passed by Congress on October 23, 1995 , states that "Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of the State of Israel; and the United States Embassy in Israel should be established in Jerusalem no later than May 31, 1999".

Background

On December 5, 1949, the Israeli Cabinet meeting in Tel Aviv declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and the Knesset proclaimed on January 23, 1950 that "Jerusalem was, and had always been, the capital of Israel." Because the status of Jerusalem had been the subject of UN resolutions calling for internationalization of the city and remained especially controversial in Arab countries, the United States did not recognize the move, although US diplomats since 1950 have regularly traveled to Jerusalem from the US Embassy in Tel Aviv to conduct business with Israeli officials. Moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem would be a coup for Israel but, even today, would be controversial because the final status of Jerusalem has not been agreed in the Peace process.

Details

The act asserts that every country has a right to designate the capital of its choice, and that Israel has designated Jerusalem. Jerusalem is defined as the spiritual center of Judaism. Furthermore, it stipulates that since the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967, religious freedom has been guaranteed to all.

The Act was adopted by the Senate (93-5) and the House (374-37).

The Senate and House votes preceded visits by then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Jerusalem Mayor Ehud Olmert to Washington to celebrate the 3000th anniversary of King David's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jews.

Since 1995, the relocation of the embassy from Tel Aviv has been suspended by the President semi-annually. Between 1995 and 2006 all memoranda suspending the act included the wording "[the] Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem"; this ended in 2009. As a result of the Embassy Act, official U.S. documents and web sites refer to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.


Full text

Section 214 of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, 2003 states:

"The Congress maintains its commitment to relocating the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and urges the President to immediately begin the process of relocating the United States Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem".

However, U.S. presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have argued that Congressional resolutions regarding the status of Jerusalem are merely "advisory", stating that it "impermissibly interferes with the President's constitutional authority". The U.S. Constitution reserves the conduct of foreign policy to the President and resolutions of Congress which make foreign policy are arguably invalid for that reason. The U.S. Congress, however, has the "power of the purse", and could prohibit the expenditure of funds on any embassy located outside Jerusalem. The U.S. Congress has not taken this step.

A potential site for a future US Embassy office building has been demarcated by Israel and the US, and is maintained in the neighborhood of Talpiot. Currently, the United States has two diplomatic office facilities in Jerusalem: a Consulate on Agron Road in West Jerusalem, and a consular annex on Nablus road in East Jerusalem. The U.S. State Department is in the process of building a new office annex in the West Jerusalem neighborhood of Arnona to replace the aging consular section in East Jerusalem.
