“The American people are excited to see the embassy move from Jerusalem after fifty years. I can’t know what will be in the future. I do know that there are advantages to moving the embassy, and one of them is honesty. We have to be honest that Jerusalem is the capital [of Israel]. There is no real argument about that at all. America stands behind its ally, Israel. Just as we condemned the UN [Security Council] resolution, we stand by our friend’s side.” –Congressman Ron DeSantis, Florida.

“Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for thousands of years, since King David. That’s a fact that nobody can deny. Now is the time for the US president to keep his promise and the law passed by Congress in 1995 and lead the free world to recognize reality and declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and the Jewish people.” –Yehuda Glick.
