(Before It's News)

“The 115th Congress started business today, and here was the first item on the table: Republican Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas), Dean Heller (Nev.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) introduced the Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act.”

This is important to Israel because the ancient city sits largely in the contested, but occupied by Israel, West Bank. The Obama administration has backed removing Israel from the West Bank. President-Elect Trump favors moving the US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. It now appears he has support from some in the US Senate.

Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel, and that’s where America’s embassy belongs,” Rubio said in a statement. “It’s time for Congress and the President-Elect to eliminate the loophole that has allowed presidents in both parties to ignore U.S. law and delay our embassy’s rightful relocation to Jerusalem for over two decades.”
