President Bush again delayed moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The move has been postponed every six months since the Jerusalem Embassy Act, which mandates that the U.S. embassy should be in Jerusalem, Israel’s capital, passed in 1995. U.S. presidents have postponed the move to avoid angering the Muslim world, which does not accept Israeli control of Jerusalem.
