Israel has requested for the United States to move our Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem multiple times. Israel has also requested that the United States recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I petition for the United States as friends of Israel, to honor Israel in their request on the basis of multiple reasons, some of which I list below.
Firstly - Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995 was passed and every president has been too cowardly to actually fulfill the law.
Secondly - the Embassy being in Jerusalem would further symbolize our support and bond with Israel and their right to exist as a nation.
Thirdly - Israel sees our refusal to allow this move as a refusal to further our bond with Israel and as support of people who refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist.
Fourthly - the Embassy would be safer being located in Jerusalem, especially since security is tighter and terrorists are less likely to send missiles or bombs into Jerusalem because they would risk damage to the Mosque and the Temple Mount.
