    There is a great deal of ferver among the pro-Israel camp in reaction to Mitt’s verbal commitment to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv. However, will Romney as a President move the American Embassy to Israel’s capital Jerusalem?

    By Shmuel Rosner

    June 19, 2012 | 7:07 am

    One of President Obama’s many mistakes when it comes to Israel was his ‎insistence on being the anti-Bush whenever possible. It was a mistake he ‎could have avoided, a decision against which he was advised by some of his ‎smarter advisors. President Bush didn’t leave office...
