Two More Good Reasons To Move The Embassy to Jerusalem


While nowhere in the article does it definitely say that the US policy against moving our embassy to Jerusalem has changed, it hasn't kept Palestinian Iman Ibrahim Mudayris from threatening us anyway.

"It is not possible that we will give up [Jerusalem] even if crusader America helps the Zionists," Mudayris said according to a translation of his sermon provided by the independent Palestinian Media Watch.

"America is the one who gives refuge to terror in this world...As Allah lives, America will be buried on the day that it moves its embassy to Jerusalem," he said. "America will be buried. This will be the last nail in [America's] coffin."

The article goes on to say that the Iman isn't the first to make such threats.

In the past, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iranian-backed Hizballah, threatened to turn the embassy to "rubble and return your diplomats in coffins" if the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem.

To any policymakers out there who might happen to be reading, let me humbly suggest that by honoring the intent of the congresspersons who passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995, there is the added benefit of making our bitterest enemies mad as hell.
