December 5, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON - Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1), member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and Co-Chairman of the House Republican Israel Caucus, issued the following statement in strong support of the anticipated decision by President Trump to recognize Jerusalem tomorrow as the capital of Israel:

“Jerusalem should be fully recognized as the indisputable, undivided capital of the Jewish State of Israel. As the permanent location of the Israeli Knesset and offices and residences of the Israeli Prime Minister and President, and for countless other reasons, the fact is that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem would be an important next step in protecting Israel’s sovereignty and security and strengthening the bond between our two nations. The U.S. has no greater ally and strategic partner than Israel. As the center of the Israeli government, as well as the nation’s unquestionable capital, it is absolutely imperative that this move is initiated and completed in earnest.”
