Relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem!

Relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem!

Click here and add your virtual signature to our letter to Congress in support of this bill.  This is a historic opportunity!

In 1995 Congress overwhelmingly passed “The Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act.” According to the Act, it became the policy of the U.S. government to recognize Jerusalem as the united, and undivided capital of Israel. Despite the stand of Congress fifteen years ago, holdouts in the executive branch–both Republican and Democrat–have refused to enact the full provisions of the law.  Each president finds loopholes and excuses.  But the time has come to put an end to such a confused posture, and signal America’s full and irrevocable support for a united Jerusalem.  It is time to finally bring the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem!

New legislation has come before Congress–House Bill, H.R. 1006–that demands the American Embassy to be moved to Jerusalem by January 1, 2013.  H.R. 1006, if passed, removes the waiver loophole which permits the President to continue postponing enactment of the Embassy law.

HR 1006 is sponsored by Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN) and has 31 co-sponsors. Finally we have a House Bill that fully proclaims America’s support for Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and puts legs to that support.

Now is the time to contact your Congressman and urge them to support HR 1006, the Jerusalem Embassy and Relocation and Recognition Act.

8 Comments to Relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem!

  1. John R. Peacher

    The Land of Israel; given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for an eternal inheritance. Given by whom? Not the UN, not the European Union, not the United States of America; but given to the Jewish descendants by the Almighty God, the Creator of all of the heavens and the earth. MOVE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TO JERUSALEM WHERE IT BELONGS!!

  2. Jim and Diane Ross

    We both agree to change the American Embassy to Jerusaleum.

  3. jan

    We must as a nation and personally stand with Israel at all cost.

  4. Chaplain Mary Beth

    Thank you, Mike Pence, for Chairing the US– Christian Allies Causus in Knesset — to support Jerusalem, the One Holy Undivided Capital of Israel.

    May the Lion of Judah guide & guard all of your supportive colleagues on the ‘Hill” in D.C.

    Shalom.

    Pray that God Almighty will bring conviction to our President and all other enemies of Israel who refuse to align themselves with God’s chosen people. Anti-semitism is demonic in nature. Pray that the millions (or billions) affected by this demonic spirit will see the light of day and soon before it is too late for them. America’s fate hangs in the balance because of our stance with Israel – not for what our leaders say, but because of their actions. I support moving Israel’s Embassy to Jerusalem where it rightfully belongs. God Bless Israel and God Bless the United States of America.

  6. Pastor Benedict Olatomide Omole

    Beloved Israelites,
    I want to indicate strongly and firmly that Jerusalem shall remain the undivided sovereign capital of The State of Israel. My support is as strong as my teeth. I believe that God has given Israel to the Jews for inheritance without any condition and the Arabs already have Bethlehem and Nazareth and some other places for themselves and this shows a great deal of fairness on the part of the Jews. And so the Palestinians should be satisfied with this and allow the Jews have that which is theirs by divine covenant of the Almighty Adonai ELHOHIM.
    I am glad to identify with Israel and the Jews because through them God has extended His mercy to me.
    God bless Israel.
    Benedict

    Support HR 1006, the Jerusalem Embassy and Relocation and Recognition Act.
    Jerusalem has always been the capital of Israel and it needs to stay that way.
    God deemed it, we support it.
    The USA needs to get out of the way….and leave them alone. We need to stop sticking our nose in everyone elses business. We can’t even take care of ourselves.

  8. Catherine Drin Jones

    Thank you Senator Dan Burton for your support of Israel. God bless you and your family and your state, Indiana.
