The short answer: Yes.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani recently sat down with the esteemed lawyer and professor Alan Dershowitz to discuss the prospective and highly controversial U.S. embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Prior to his inauguration, Donald Trump was highly supportive of the move, although in recent weeks the President has softened his stance on the issue.
Giuliani says he feels that the American embassy “should be in Jerusalem.” Dershowitz says he agrees, and that the U.S. should formally reject UN Resolution 2334, which insinuates that Israeli settlements were constructed illegally on Palestinian land. Dershowitz also proposes that the U.S. should assure “its allies in the region – the Saudis, the Egyptians, the Jordanians and the Emirates” that the embassy move is acceptable and “doesn’t pose any problems for Islam.”
“Being impulsive, had I been President I probably would have done it immediately, without all of the wisdom of Alan Dershowitz,” Giuliani says. “But if I had been smart enough to call him, I would have followed exactly the program that he outlined.”
