Relocating US Embassy: Not a Smart Move

Relocating US Embassy: Not a Smart Move

What a shame that Senate majority leader Bob Dole and House Speaker Newt Gingrich feel so compelled to push for the relocation of the United States Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a city with such an uncertain future.

If the US is to aid in the Middle East peace talks, shouldn't we make every effort to assert our neutrality? It appears Israel's human and property rights violations against Palestinians in the West Bank and other occupied territories are of no consequence.
