(Israel National News) Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain has categorically stated he will move the American embassy in Israeli from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem if he is elected president in November. [...]
A Congressional law mandates the move but includes allows the president to exercise a clause every six months to postpone the move for six months if there is a fear that it would harm American interests.
Many Americans have heard this "song and dance" before, previously from both former President Clinton and President Bush. Senator Obama has not declared whether or not he would move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to the holy city (which may be a sign that the status quo will stand underneath him).
Hopefully John McCain is a man of his word, as having Jerusalem recognized as Israel's capital would go a long ways towards strengthening the ties between America and Israel (not to mention send a signal towards the Jewish state's "rowdy" neighbors).
