“Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in regards to its capital”.
This are the words of Newt Gingrich, a potential Republican presidential candidate in 2012. He called on the next U.S. leader to move the country’s embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
Gingrich, the former speaker of the House of Representatives and congressman from Georgia, proposed a series of Executive Orders that he believes the next president should sign on his first day in office.
Among the four orders the conservative Republican presented Monday to the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition is to “Respect Each Sovereign Nation’s Choice of its Capital.”
Gingrich’s description of the order reads:
“Israel is the only country the United States discriminates against in this regard. The people of Israel have designated Jerusalem as their capital. Yet the United States retains its embassy in Tel Aviv. A more peaceful Middle East will not come through confused signals, mixed messages, and extravagant but unrealizable hopes”.
“Making it clear that we respect the rights of the people of the only long-term democracy in the Middle East and making clear that it is their right to negotiate the future of their Capital will strengthen the framework within which peace could be negotiated.”
Earlier this month, Gingrich created the Newt Exploratory 2012 website, bypassing the formation of a formal exploratory committee for a possible presidential run.
Newt Gingrich may not have noble motives for his support of Israel, being a Southern Baptist who has converted to the Roman Catholic religion. The Republican Party needs the support from Evangelicals to regain the White House. Gingrich views on Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is Biblical.
It would be strange if Israel did not recognize California as a state of the USA. The reason for this rejection, could have been Mexican claims to this this former Spanish colony.
Los Angeles is basically a Spanish name, and the city should have remained Roman Catholic. San Diego is also named after a Roman Catholic saint, and must be returned back to Catholic Mexico.
It would have been even more spectacular if Israel did not recognize Washington D.C as the capital of the USA. The reason was that New England once up on a time was controlled by the King of England.
The US denial of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is nothing but shameless. The Jews build this city, and they have a 3.000 year old connection to this area in the Middle east. That Jerusalem have been occupied by the Papacy, Islam and the United Kingdom, has not changed the original ownership. The Bible is also very clear. The Jews are the only correct caretakers of Zion.
And I will bring you to the land I swore with uplifted hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob. I will give it to you as a possession. I am the LORD.’”
