Bush Nixes Embassy Move to Jerusalem

( President Bush extended for an additional six months his waiver of a law requiring the move of the US embassy in Israel in Jerusalem from its Tel-Aviv location.

The waiver, sent to US Secretary of State Condolezza Rice on December 4 and published on Tuesday, cites “national security interests” in stalling the Jerusalem Embassy Act for six months.

Both Bush and his predecessor, Clinton have routinely delayed the implementation of the 1995 law mandating the move of the US embassy to Israel’s capital.
