The United States officially opened the American embassy in Jerusalem Monday, fulfilling years of empty promises and turning the page on a new chapter in the region’s push for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

“This is not the end of the US as an arbiter in Mideast peace,” said Buck Sexton. “It’s tremendously significant as a symbol, but in terms of where this takes us with the peace process we’ve been trying to achieve, I actually think this will be better.”

“There was no never going to be an Israeli state that did not have Jerusalem as its capital,” he added. “It was never going to be traded away, that was never going to happen. So why go through these motions of, ‘Well, we’re going to wait on the embassy.’”

“Now we get to finally see an administration that comes along and says this is nonsense. This holding off on the embassy. It’s already US law. What’s the point of pretending there will be any future where we don’t put the US embassy in Jerusalem?” asked Sexton.
