DEADLINE FOR US EMBASSY TRANSFER TO JERUSALEM

Christians’ Israel Public Action Campaign
www.cipaconline.org

The June 15th 2006 deadline for moving our US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
is fast approaching.

The 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act states that the US Embassy should be there,
and President Bush promised in his 2000 campaign to put it there ” as a
first order of business.”

Instead, Dick Hellman, President of CIPAC (Christians’ Israel Public Action
Campaign) recently wrote President Bush, urging him to follow through NOW,
pointing out that he was at this point tied with former President Clinton
for having taken 10 six-month extensions under this act, delaying this move.

He further wrote:

“No other nation ever made Israel its capital. The Koran makes no
mention of Jerusalem.
We Christians have no earthly capital. (but) The Jewish scriptures
mention Jerusalem 600 times (!).

“At heart, this involves recognizing the City of David and of the Great
King. Psalms 137:5-6 warns of
stark consequences for ignoring Jerusalem’s centrality:

“If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its
ability. If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth, if I prefer
not Jerusalem above my chief joy.”

“Therefore, unless you order the US Ambassador in Israel to make
Jerusalem his official location
(employing one of our existing buildings for now), we will ask Congress
to delete your authority to take more
extensions of this recognition of Israel’s capital.

“Since we believe that you are a man of your word, we expect you to keep
your promise and place our
Ambassador in Jerusalem, where he belongs, before June 15, 2006.

“Respectfully yours, with our prayers for you and yours,

Richard A Hellman

CIPAC calls on its members and other friends of Israel to please email,
fax, telephone, write the President; copy your U.S. Senators and
Representatives (for details on how to do this, see www.cipaconline.org ).

CIPAC LETTER TO PRESIDENT BUSH:

March
15, 2006
Dear Mr. President:

We urge you to move our U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem now, instead of taking an
11th six-month extension in mid-June – and thereby breaking the unenviable
record you share with your predecessor, Bill Clinton, who took 10 extensions
as you now have done.

Not only does the 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act state that the U.S. Embassy
should be in Jerusalem, but also you promised in your 2000 Campaign to move
our Embassy up to Jerusalem “as a first order of business.”

As we have written to you, and I am sure you recognize, no other nation or
people has the biblical, historical and moral rights to Jerusalem as a
Capital that Israel has. No other nation ever made Israel its capital. The
Koran makes no mention of Jerusalem. We Christians have no earthly capital.
The Jewish Scriptures mention Jerusalem 600 times.

At heart this involves recognizing the City of David and of the Great King.
Psalms 137:5-6 warns of stark consequences for ignoring Jerusalem’s
centrality: “If I forget thee, oh Jerusalem, may my right hand lose its
ability. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my
mouth, if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.”

Therefore, unless you order the U.S. Ambassador in Israel to make Jerusalem
his official location (employing one of our existing buildings for now), we
will ask Congress to delete your authority to take more extensions of this
recognition of Israel’s capital.

Since we believe that you are a man of your word, we expect you to keep your
promise and place our Ambassador in Jerusalem, where he belongs, before June
15, 2006.

Respectfully yours, with our prayers for you and yours,

Richard A. Hellman
