JERUSALEM IS NOT IN ISRAEL . . .

so says the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia.

Ben Shapiro at Breitbart reported on the ruling. Emphasis mine.

On Tuesday, a unanimous three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled that Americans born in Jerusalem cannot put "Israel" as a place of birth on their birth certificates. Judge Karen Henderson wrote that the president "exclusively holds the power to determine whether to recognize a foreign sovereign," and that the president had not recognized Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem. . . .

The Obama administration has consistently refused to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli territory, let alone as the capital of Israel.

Story here.

As often noted on this blog and at Koenig's site and McTernan's site, as we do unto Israel is done unto us. If we refuse to acknowledge Jerusalem as the capital of Israel or even as part of Israel, what could that mean for our capital of Washington, D.C., at some point in the future?

It is interesting to note that the "giant corpse" flower "bloomed" in Washington, D.C., on Sunday with its smell, which is that of rotting flesh, would "peak" on Monday morning and continue for about 48 hours. This decision on Jerusalem came during that 48 hours, on Tuesday.

The Washington Post notes that the "corpse flower" is native to Sumatra, Indonesia, a place that Obama also calls his "boyhood" home.
