Washington D.C. — Today marks the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, issued the following statement:
“Today is an historic moment — not just in Israeli history or American history, but in the history of the world. Today, the U.S. Embassy in Israel is open in Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital.
“America has a history of defying the naysayers and standing by our principles in defending our ally, Israel. Seventy years ago, President Truman made history when he recognized the State of Israel just 11 minutes after the provisional government of Israel announced its statehood. Today, America has again made history under the leadership of President Trump.
“This has been an issue of importance to Concerned Women for America from the beginning.
“Thank you, President Trump, for making good on your promise to the American people, to Israel, and for paving the way for other nations to follow our example.”
