Excerpt from The Washington Free Beacon
Written by Adam Kredo
The Obama administration ignited a firestorm over the weekend when it stripped the city of Jerusalem as being located in Israel in an official communication sent following a memorial service for recently deceased former Israeli President Shimon Peres.
The White House originally sent out a press release attributing Obama’s remarks at the memorial service as taking place in “Jerusalem, Israel.” However, shortly after that statement was sent, the White House reissued the statement with “Israel” crossed out as the location.
The White House’s move prompted criticism in Israel and throughout the pro-Israel community, including on Capitol Hill.
The Washington Free Beacon has assembled a list of ten other places that the White House does not believe are located in the state of Israel.
