Israel Sovereignty and Security Recognition Act
To affirm United States recognition of Israel's sovereignty, security, and legal right to its lands, and for other purposes.
Israel Sovereignty and Security Recognition Act - Expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) the United States should recognize Israel's sovereignty and legal right to its lands, including the Golan Heights and Jerusalem as Israel's capital; and (2) the Secretary of State should transfer the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Jerusalem, Israel, and either repurpose or sell the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv. Amends the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 to eliminate the President's authority to waive certain funding limitations for Department of State acquisition and maintenance of buildings abroad until the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem has officially opened.
Please do not take action that will worsen the prospects for a real peace between the state of Israel and the future hoped for Palestinian state. There is no reason to support this bill or support Trump’s choice to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
