Obama's administration refuses to label Jerusalem as Israel's capitol

The Wash. Free Beacon (via Accuracy in Media) says that the case of refusal to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capitol is a lot worse than it looks at first glance:
Controversy initially erupted over the matter in 2011, when the White House was caught altering photo captions of Vice President Joe Biden’s trip to Israel. Photos that once declared “Jerusalem, Israel” were later scrubbed to read “Jerusalem.”

Further reports exposed that the administration had gone back through official archives to remove Israel from documents published during the administration of George W. Bush.

Subsequent investigations determined that administrations including those of Richard Nixon, Jimmy Cater, and Bill Clinton often referred to “Jerusalem, Israel,” striking a blow against Obama administration claims that they were upholding a “long-standing” policy.
So even those earlier politicians, dreadful as they were in their time, still referred to Jerusalem as Israel's capitol. Now, Obama's staff is trying to omit even that much. And that is most definitely disturbing.

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
