Attorney Marc Zell, Co-Chair Republicans Overseas Israel, told IMRA today that he was advised by sources both in the White House and the Israeli Government that Prime Minister Netanyahu was responsible for the delay in the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem.

Zell explained that when it became clear that Donald Trump, who was acting quickly on fulfilling various campaign promises, was also going to quickly move the embassy, Prime Minister Netanyahu called and asked that the move be delayed so that Israel would have enough time to prepare for it.

Marc Zell noted that he considers Netanyahu’s move, namely getting enough time to prepare for the move before it took place, as a responsible action.
