US State Department Refuses to Say Jerusalem is Israel's Capital - Updated: with Torah Codes

[HT: Miguel]

Last week’s United States Supreme Court decision declared that a lower court must deal with a complaint by a Jerusalem resident that the State Department has refused to write “Jerusalem, Israel” on his passport.

A court decision in the plaintiff’s favor would force a major policy change, but what apparently prompted the question to the State Department was its altering an official communication that originally referred to Israel and Jerusalem as separate entities. “The first media note was issued in error, without appropriate clearances,” Nuland tried to explain.

 The Clinton, Reagan and Obama administrations have used a Congressional waiver to avoid carrying out a law that declares that the embassy be in Jerusalem. The waiver allows the president to declare that carrying out the law would create a national security problem, although it never has been explained how American security would be threatened by moving the embassy.

I saw this and heard the familiar, "Dum de dum dum" music in the background. They have no clue the weight in Shmayim when they make decisions like this.
I guess with this particular admin it's just another nail in.....

They're on shaky ground anyway:

The tallest and possibly most recognizable monument on the broad National Mall in Washington, D.C., is the Washington Monument. It sustained damage during a 5.8-magnitude earthquake centered in Virginia on Aug. 23, 2011, with some stones being cracked and mortar loosened. A survey is now under way to determine whether additional damage occurred that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

A group of experts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Geodetic Survey are performing a leveling survey to determine whether ground shifted beneath the monument.

I remember this. If anyone doubts G-d's existence, they are foolish.
