The White House removed references to Jerusalem, Israel from its website

I heard about this on Beck’s radio show, that the White House has change any references from ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ to just ‘Jerusalem’ on its website. So I went to check it out and sure enough, I could only find one reference to ‘Jerusalem, Israel’. But I found a ton of results for just ‘Jerusalem’.

The way this started was that yesterday the Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper posted that while the State Department’s policy was that Jerusalem was not part of Israel, the White House had images of Biden meeting with Shimon Peres that noted it occurred in ‘Jerusalem, Israel’. Shortly after he posted that, the White House changed all of their related image captions (and perhaps other references) with the words ‘Jerusalem, Israel’ to just ‘Jerusalem’.

And to prove the point, here’s a video that shows before and after images that prove that this was intentionally changed

While this is infuriating it’s not surprising. We know this administration is anti-Israel as they’ve demonstrated time and time again. And this is just one more problem that we’ll remedy in Nov 2012.
