Obama Crosses Out The Word ‘Israel’ Next To ‘Jerusalem’ On Official White House Press Release

The White House forgot its own anti-semitic policy on Jerusalem Friday — at least temporarily.

“Blessed be the LORD out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD.” Psalm 135:21 (KJV)

EDITOR”S NOTE: As Obama gleefully crossed out “Israel” as it stood on a White House press release next to the word ‘Jerusalem’, it is interesting to note that when Donald Trump met with Benjamin Netanyahu last week, he promised that the United States would finally recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. To Obama, Jerusalem is Palestinian territory, which is why he says ISIL and never ISIS.

The administration initially sent out a copy of President Barack Obama’s remarks at former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres’ funeral in Jerusalem, indicating that the remarks had been given in Jerusalem, Israel. But later Friday afternoon, the press office sent out a correction to the previous email, striking out “Israel” from the header of the transcript.


Obama delivered the eulogy at Israeli national cemetery Mount Herzl.

U.S. policy has long refrained from recognizing any nation’s sovereignty over Jerusalem. Both Israelis and Palestinians claim Jerusalem as their capital, with Israel declaring in 1980 the city was its undivided capital. A 2015 Supreme Court decision reaffirmed U.S. practice that forbids Americans born in Jerusalem to list Israel as their country of birth on passports.

Obama calls for Israel to ‘end occupation of Palestinian land’:

Today Obama was in Israel giving the eulogy at Shimon Peres’ funeral, but just a week ago he stood in front of the UN General Assembly and called Israel ‘occupiers’ who needed to ‘stop occupying Palestinian land’.

The U.S. embassy in Israel is in Tel Aviv, but the country maintains a consulate in Jerusalem. Congress passed a law in 1995 calling for the embassy to be moved to Jerusalem, but presidents since then have used their waiver authority to prevent the change. source
