How long has Jerusalem been in Israel?...it ain't no more!

The Obama administration is doing the job Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wants to do...wipe Israel off the map.  Obama wants to reduce the borders of Israel to better able Hamas and the Palestinians to finish the job with their relatively short range rockets and mortars (I should also include the Muslim Brotherhood here but it doesn't matter what label I put on them, they're all Muslims determined to destroy Israel...they're also determined to destroy the United States but that's another story).  Assisting Ahmadinejad from the White House, Obama has already begun the process of removing Jerusalem from Israel...you say, "What?", "How can he do that?"   Apparently the dictator in charge along with his co-conspirator, Hillary Clinton (you know how she loved Soha Arafat) have decided that Jerusalem is disputed territory and no longer fits in it's over two-thousand year location.  Hillary has gone so far as to change the rules regarding the issuing of birth certificates and passports for those born or traveling to Jerusalem...it took me a while to find this but here's an excerpt right out of the U.S. State Department's website:
a. Passport Applicant Lists a Place of Birth on the Passport Application That Does Not Reflect Current Sovereignty: If there is a question as to what country now has sovereignty over the actual place of birth, or whether that sovereignty is recognized by the United States, the passport authorizing officer should determine the country having present sovereignty and annotate the place of birth on the passport application with the correct place of birth code in accordance with the guidance in this appendix. This often occurs when an applicant was born in part of a country, which the United States recognizes as having been subsequently annexed by another country and the applicant lists the country that was sovereign the time of the birth on the passport application. For example:
If the passport applicant lists the place of birth on the passport application as Danzig, Germany, the passport authorizing officer should annotate the passport application to reflect the birthplace code for the jurisdiction with current sovereignty and place name as Gdansk, Poland even if the birth evidence (including naturalization certificates) list Danzig, Germany.   There's more here: U.S. Department of State Foreign Affairs Manual Volume 7 - Consular Affairs 
This outright indignation of Jerusalem has been going on for some time but the mainstream media refuses to publicize it for fear of some back-lash from the voters going into the 2012 election year.  However there's a U.S. Supreme Court case coming soon that should be closely watched as to its outcome.  Rather than me trying to explain what that's all about I will post the following:
This is from...

Mr President: It's "Jerusalem, Israel"
If you are an American citizen born in Jerusalem, the United States Government will not include Israel as the place of birth on your passport. One Jerusalem is involved in an important effort to end this discrimination against Israel.
The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case brought by an American citizen born in Jerusalem. US citizen Menachem Zivotofsky was born in Jerusalem in 2002. The US State Department has refused to list "Israel" as his place of birth on his passport and would only write "Jerusalem" instead. This is despite the fact that in 2002 Congress instructed the State Department to "record the place of birth as Israel" in passports of American children born in Jerusalem if their parents request it.
The Obama administration urged the Supreme Court not to hear the case. The Supreme Court justices instead not only agreed to hear the case, but also directed the two sides to address the broad question of whether the law "impermissibly infringes the president's power to recognize foreign sovereigns."
This case is especially important at a time when the US President has effectively endorsed the division of Jerusalem in calling for a return to the 1967 lines while an overwhelming majority of Congress supports defensible borders and a united Jerusalem.
You can help in several ways:
Send a letter to your Congressman and ask him to support an amicus brief that must be filed by August 5. Sample letter and relevant information can be found here.
You can join other citizens born in Jerusalem who want Israel on their passports. Born In Jerusalem web-site is here.
Meanwhile back in the White House...
Check out these official White House photos...Israel no longer exists in the minds of the Obama administration...hope you pin heads remember come November of 2012 because the U. S. of A. will not exist except as a memory you can tell your grandchildren twenty years from now. ~ Norman E. Hooben

I wrote about this last week. What Obama has done and is doing is driving the Jewish vote (and money) away.

I hope he keeps it up. He will get the Jews out of the Democratic Party and into the Republican.

When Danielle Allen, PHD deliberated about the many factions our Founding Fathers had to contend with (she was interviewed by the Washington Times) I argued that we are inundated with factions today that would make the earlier times look tame. I bring this up now because this anti-Israel move on the part of Obama and Hillary is one of those factions that will bring us closer to war. So when you say, "I hope he keeps it up." my opinion is, if he does, it will make the "shot heard around the world" look tame...
