Presidential Memorandum — Presidential Determination with respect to the Suspension of Limitations under the Jerusalem Embassy Act
MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY OF STATE
Pursuant to the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including section 7(a) of the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 (Public Law 104-45)(the “Act”), I hereby determine that it is necessary, in order to protect the national security interests of the United States, to suspend for a period of 6 months the limitations set forth in sections 3(b) and 7(b) of the Act.
You are authorized and directed to transmit this determination to the Congress, accompanied by a report in accordance with section 7(a) of the Act, and to publish the determination in the Federal Register.
This suspension shall take effect after the transmission of this determination and report to the Congress.
This law has never been used to achieve the goal of putting the US Embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.
This in-force legislation was waived initially by William Jefferson Clinton, then by It’s All George W. Bush’s Fault and of course now it’s a flat-out certainty to be waived in perpetuity by President-For-Life Barack Hussein Obama (PBUH) – or for as long as Israel continues to exist.
