US Jerusalem Embassy to open this Spring

| February 23, 2018 | 16 Comments

Mick sends us a link to Fox News which reports that the US Israel Embassy will open in Jerusalem in May, 2018 ahead of schedule and in conjunction with the 70th anniversary of Israel’s declaration of their independence.

A ribbon-cutting is being planned for mid-May. Israel proclaimed independence on May 14, 1948.

The May opening marks a significant acceleration. Vice President Mike Pence had said previously the embassy would open by the end of 2019. And Tillerson had said it could take years.

Initially, the embassy will consist of just a few offices inside an existing U.S. facility in Jerusalem.

In October, 1995 the House and Senate passed a bill called the “Jerusalem Embassy Act,” which formally recognized the city as the country’s capital and called for the U.S. Embassy in Israel to be moved there from Tel Aviv by 1999. That was three presidents ago.
