White House Insults State of Israel on Day of Shimon Peres Funeral

This outrageous anti-Israel behavior took place on the very day that Shimon Peres was buried:
White House corrects location of Jerusalem on day of Peres’ funeral

Every American President in recent decades has promised to have the American Government officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's Capital, but none have. It's just one of those lies they all say to get the "Jewish vote."

Israeli officials and American Jewry consistently ignore the fact that not only have successive American Governments called post-1967 Jerusalem neighborhoods "settlements," but they refuse to recognize American citizens born in Jerusalem as born in Jerusalem, Israel. Yes, as far as the American State Department and all the American Governments since 1948 are concerned, Jerusalem is supposed to be Arab internationalized. Basically, Jerusalem is supposed to be anything but Jewish-Israeli. And this hasn't changed one iota in the close to seventy years since the establishment of the State of Israel.

Now, the bottom line as far as I'm concerned is that American policy is not that of a friend or ally, and the State of Israel should stop fantasizing that it is.

President Obama gave a very Zionist eulogy, so things are a litle bit more complicated than that.

Sammy, don't be so naive. It was a speech, not policy. And Obama sure didn't write it. They have a budget for that. I don't know who has replaced Elie Weisel as "Jewish Speech" writer. It's all an act like a screenplay. But that crossing out of Israel was policy.
