In a historic Middle East foreign policy shift, last week President Trump boldly declared that the United States now recognizes Israel as the capital of Israel.
The Palestinians understood the ramifications of the decision, then protested and rioted.
The U.S. State Department did nothing.
That’s right, the U.S. State Department is taking a “nothing has changed” posture.
+ + The U.S. State Department is going rogue against President Trump!
According to an investigation by Adam Kredo of the Washington Free Beacon:
“The United States still will not formally recognize Jerusalem as being located in Israel on official documents, maps, and passports, despite President Donald Trump’s announcement earlier this week that America is formally recognizing the holy city as Israel’s capital, according to State Department officials who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon about the matter.
The State Department’s careful parsing of the issue has already drawn outrage on Capitol Hill, where some lawmakers are describing this as part of an effort to undermine the Trump White House’s clear-cut declaration on the matter.”
Middle East expert Ari Lieberman took the issue one step further into the Deep State:
“It appears that the State Department, staffed with a cadre of career civil servants and employees of the diplomatic corps, is conducting its own foreign policy, one that deviates from the goals of the White House and undermines its objectives. This group is perhaps more fanatical in its opposition to the president’s historic declaration than some Arab leaders.
Their resistance is motivated by a myriad of reasons. Some simply hate Trump and this offers an opportunity to engage in obstructionism. Some are deeply anti-Semitic and their sympathies lie squarely in the Arab camp. Others view change and bold action as a threat and prefer the status quo. Whatever their motivations, they are working in concert to delay and obstruct the president’s bold new policy initiatives… “
This is what we are going to do – for now. The State Department will soon learn that WE, grassroots Americans, adamantly support the President’s bold new Middle East policy!
Christians in Defense of Israel has launched a nationwide campaign to support the President as he faces this onslaught of international attacks — and bullies within our borders. We are calling on grassroots citizens to join together in issuing a strong “Vote Of Confidence” for the President.
We want to rally at least 25,000 citizens to sign this important “Vote Of Confidence” this month so we can deliver this message to President Trump — and now to the State Department — in early 2018!

+ + The Obama/Clinton-infused State Department is no friend of Israel!
Just last August, the State Department intentionally demonized Israel!
Despite President Trump’s firm pro-Israel stance, State Department officials released a report wrongly blaming Israel for fostering Palestinian terrorism against Israeli citizens. Incredibly, it portrayed the Palestinian Authority as innocent bystanders to terror, and blamed the Jewish State for stalling the peace process. The report drew the ire of a number of lawmakers on Capitol Hill who demanded a retraction.
Today, let’s join together to support President Trump in doing the right thing!
Thank you for joining with us!
God bless you. God bless the USA. God bless Israel.
