New Jersey rep asks House to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital

New Jersey Congressman Scott Garrett (R-5th Dist.) has presented the House with a bill suggesting the US recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and enact a bill passed in 1995, to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

 

The 1995 bill passed by a majority vote in both the Senate and the Congress, but was never put in effect. (Yitzhak Benhorin, Washington)
