Congress Delegation Visits Israel to Discuss Embassy Move

The following was reported yesterday by the ultra, uber Zionist Arutz Sheva website:

An official delegation from the United States Congress will arrive in Israel for a 24-hour visit on Saturday, in order to discuss the potential move of the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The delegation is on behalf of the Subcommittee on National Security of the House of Representatives, and it is expected to closely examine the issue of moving the embassy, both from a practical standpoint as well as from a political standpoint.

The members of the delegation will be the Chairman of the Subcommittee, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), and Rep. Dennis Ross (R-FL).

The delegation will meet with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and other leaders on the issue of Jerusalem, visit potential sites for the location of the embassy and return to the United States with an accurate analysis.

MK Yehuda Glick (Likud) will brief the delegation about the unique history and the political reality of Jerusalem, past and present.

Moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in recognition of Jerusalem being Israel’s capital was a central campaign promise of President Donald Trump.

The article goes on to lament that President Trump appears to have backed off his campaign pledge to move the embassy. When it comes to Trump it’s hard to make any accurate predictions, so I won’t even try. But I will say a few things about Yehuda Glick, who apparently will meet with the congressional delegation.

Glick is a key player in the Temple Movement, which seeks to build a third Jewish temple on the Haram al-Sharif, or the Temple Mount, where the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock now stand. Glick is also a staunch advocate of allowing Jews go up to the Temple Mount to “pray,” a practice that has led, perhaps inevitably, to violent clashes between Jews and Muslims.

An article published last year by Mondoweiss refers to Glick as the “face” of the Temple Movement, and describes his election to the Knessett as “a major step forward in the Religious Zionist takeover of Israel.”

Israel seems well on its way to becoming an ethnocracy ruled by religious fanatics, but if you think this will give Congress members pause to reconsider their “special relationship” with the Jewish state, you are probably dreaming.

  1. So many Congressional flunky’s and only so many shekels to go around. Where did Glick get that red hair from, or is that another special Semitic tag? Or maybe the Chosen Ones are really from Ireland?

  2. Dennis Ross…. great choice. Does he still have US citizenship or has he dispensed with the pretense? Of course he will return to the US with an “accurate” analysis.
    This is one campaign promise Trump is most likely to keep, after which there will be no reason left to call the US anything other than USrael.

    • I think it’s a different Dennis Ross, Ariandna. The congressman from Florida is a different Dennis Ross from the one you are thinking about.

      • Your Dennis Ross is Jewish, the Florida congressman is a Catholic. Although more than likely they are both Zionists, so you are probably right. There’s not that much difference to speak of.

  3. Dear Richard
    Ty Richard for article.
    I vehemtly white hot angry at the Churches,Pastors,So-called Christians.

    I thought Lord Jesus Christ is”The Way,The Truth,and The Life that NO ONE CAN COME TO THE FATHER BUT BY HIM(John 14:6) and also that in John 10:1-10 That Lord Jesus Christ is the Door and that he that climbeth up another way is a Thief and A robber.

    Gal.3:26-29 Says there’s NEITHER JEW NOR GREEK AND Christ Jesus is the Seed of Abraham.

    But

    Here’s where I’m angry Christians pay Thousands of Dollars every year to fly over to occupied land to visit and give money to People who MURDER AND BUTCHER Christians.
    Who mock and make fun of my Lord and Saviour.

    Whenever this sorry-ass Nation asks for more money and weapons to massacre Christians it always gets it,plus as it’s getting it.It always Stabs us in the back.

    But

    If I dare say anything about this nation that bombed our USS Liberty and did 911,boy the fangs come out of the Christians eyes,like”How Dare you critize God’s Chosen People.

    But

    Whenever a Christian needs help,gets the door slammed in their faces like Lazarus.
    Now you understand why I’m White-Hot Angry at The Christian Church!!!

    • P.S The Nutshell is Christians today have been soo much Kissing the Rear of The Household of Satan for soo long.That the Christian has been Spiritually Neglected,Shafted,Used and Abused,Robbed and Stolen from.Because The Pastors have been more loyal to the Jews who crucified my Lord Jesus Christ than Christians themselves.
      Another example if I do a little inch wrong,that the Christian won’t have anything to do with one.

      But

      Israel can moleste Children,Organ Harvest out of teenage Palestinian bodies,Murder and Butcher innocent Christians by the Billions.
      The Christians would enlist their Children to fight for the Jews.

      The Christian Churches,Pastors whitewash,Sweep under the rug,turn a blind to Israel and The Jews but not the Christian.

      Now you understand why i’m vehemently White Hot at The Christian Church!!!
