Rubio- “Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel”

By Javier Manjarres

Rubio officeThe Washington Post is reporting that Senator Marco Rubio has said that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel during his week-long trip to Jordan and Israel. This is old news since Rubio, as far back as 2009, has stated that Jerusalem, not Tel Aviv was the true capital. Here is a video we shot of Rubio during a Palm Beach, Florida stop on his 2010 Senatorial campaign.

In his first official visit to the country, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told Israel’s president on Wednesday that Jerusalem is “of course the capital of your country.” He reiterated America’s bipartisan support for Israel.-Washington Post
