Obama Wins Again: Supreme Court Rules Jerusalem Not in Israel


The US Supreme Court on Monday sided with US President Barack Obama and criticized Congress for “overstepping its bounds” when it tried to press Obama to have Menachem Binyamin Zivotofsky’s passport list “Jerusalem, Israel” as his place of birth, in a key case regarding the city’s status as Israel’s capital.

By a 6-3 majority, the Supreme Court struck down a law from 2002 which requires the US State Department to recognize Jerusalem as part of Israel, reports National Journal.

Both the administrations of Obama and George W. Bush refused to implement the law; the eastern part of the 3,000-year-old capital of the Jewish state was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War.

As it stands currently, a child born in Jerusalem has “Jerusalem” listed on their US passport without a country. Official US policy has been not to recognize any sovereignty on either side over Jerusalem ever since the Truman administration.

  2. Whatever will the US Supreme Court rule on next? Why not a ruling on whether Islam is a religion of peace and ISIS truly represent the tenets of the Prophet and should be allowed to be practiced in Jerusalem as well as the United States?

    • Islam is the law of the Devil who made stars to look like rosy paint killing the stars God made. Islam lies about everything. Quran followers mouth word peace meaning nothing even as Jesus being spoken saying he is a great prophet meaning nothing to them having a fake smile. Both words mean nothing to them.
