JNS.org – US Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.), who recently led a bipartisan Congressional delegation on a fact-finding mission to Israel, said each of the last two presidential administrations (George W. Bush and Barack Obama) have taken the “wrong view” by refusing to move America’s Israeli embassy to the capital of Jerusalem.

Garrett, who is Christian, represents a majority-Jewish population in his district and has a strong pro-Israel record in Congress. He was on the Iran sanctions committee of 2010 and in 2013 introduced a bill to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In a radio interview on the Yishai Fleisher Show, Garrett said, “Ever since I’ve been in Congress I’ve supported the Israeli position on where their capital should be. I believe any sovereign nation has the right to make that determination.”

Garrett also slammed the Obama administration-brokered Iran nuclear deal, saying it “facilitates the undoing of what [Congress] was trying to do back in 2010” through sanctions.

    Garret is great. He’s my representative. Although there are many Jews in his district, we are not the majority here.

    That’s why the Bush family has a curse on it, in their hearts they have never really reconciled with Israel for the damage that was done by the Bush family. All theydo is attempt to cover it with political veneer. God knows their first interest is oil and they will protect the enemy’s of Israel if it is in their financial interests. 4 percent in polling with the gargantuan amount of political financing he has is Gods curse on that family. Until they get right with Israel politically they are doomed. God will never forget Bush and Gaza. That’s a fact! G.W. Should be counting his blessings that he is not now in a coma….his brothers mouth has been stupefied. Obama and the Clintons swim in the curse, have accepted the curse and are full well ready to accept any and all consequences they bring upon themselves by shoving a knife in Israel’s back. They have the dark side protecting them and they have sold their souls to the devil. The Bush family has not gone that far therefore God is treating them with kid gloves. But let me be very clear, the whole world is in imment danger….if you do not bow to Islam Obama will be a hound from hell on your heels and this stupid congress has given him the money and the military to attack all the infidels.
