State Department Perpetuates Obama’s Refusal to Acknowledge Israel’s Ownership of Jerusalem

I guess we’ll just have to wait until after the November elections before the U.S. government can read a map:

State Department Won’t Say Jerusalem Is in Israel
BY: Adam Kredo – March 27, 2012FreeBeacon.com

An official State Department communication has labeled Jerusalem and Israel as separate entities.

In an official press release yesterday, the State Department announced that “Acting Under Secretary Kathleen Stephens Travels to Algeria, Qatar, Jordan, Jerusalem, and Israel.”

Keeping up with its longstanding policy, the State Department refuses to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s official capital—despite a U.S. law stating otherwise. Obama faced criticism on the issue last year, when it was revealed that the White House had scrubbed all references to Jerusalem being part of the Jewish state from a collection of photos on its website.

Obama has also been lambasted by pro-Israel leaders and some on Capitol Hill for capitulating to pressure from the State Department, which has long opposed U.S. law on the matter.

A senior GOP aide condemned the State Department’s recent press release as unsound foreign policy.

“Once again, President Obama’s administration reminds Jewish voters why he cannot be trusted when it comes to Israel’s security,” said the source. “He doesn’t think Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Is it its own sovereign nation?”

The GOP source also chided Obama for continuing to buck U.S. law on the issue.

“Under U.S. law, Jerusalem is recognized as the undivided capital of Israel—period,” said the adviser. “Unlike the U.S. embassy’s move, that fact is not subject to any waiver or exception. So the question really is, why is Barack Obama ignoring U.S. law and refusing to recognize Israel’s capital?”

    Why is this suprising? Obama wants to appear to be Mr. islam… He’s going to use his cronies to do anything to kiss up to the shariaists…

    At least they admitted to their mistake (kinda)….

    The administration of our ‘Dear Leader’ tossing our friends and allies under the bus. With friends like the ‘Charlatan in Chief’ who needs enemies?

    Not so fast, He must have a reason as it would be not only political
    suicide to toss our only true friend in the middle east under a bus.
    All administrations have supported Israel, though some in each administration quietly did not. Nixon verbally vexed his hatred of the Jews in private tapes and others wished they could but the US needs
    Isreal and all our leaders know it, like it or not. I need more proof
    that Obama needs to be Mr. Islam. Taking away womens’ rights is
    Shariaist.

    Someone should tell the CFR bulldike that there is no peace process. Just a lot of rockets launched by the Arabs, and babies getting murdered in their sleep by moon god worshiping POS.

    DaOne bows down to the keeper of the kaaba. The pagan shrine that holds 360 false gods. Well, just one false god now thanks to Muhammad the murderer, and rapist.
