Jerusalem Recognized as Israel 'Eternal and Undivided' Capital By Florida Cabinet

Jerusalem has been officially recognized as Israel's "eternal and undivided capital" by the Florida Cabinet. This is a step beyond what even the Trump administration has said about the holy city, reported CBN News

"We have made it clear that we stand with our closest ally in the Middle East"

The Trump administration has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, but it has never really clarified if it supports a united or divided Jerusalem. Florida top office-holders, however, have shown that they have a different view on Jerusalem's role. They made their sentiment very clear on Tuesday when they passed a symbolic resolution stating Jerusalem is both undivided and eternal.

"We have made it clear that we stand with our closest ally in the Middle East. I too believe in standing strong with our friend and partner and ally," said Florida's Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis during Tuesday's cabinet meeting.

"As a state we must continue to demonstrate our broad and deep support of our ally and economic partner by implementing pro-Israel policies," Patornis said. "Today we declare to the world that Florida stands united with Israel."

"We see a much deeper sense of true friendship that defines the current Florida-Israel relationship"

Deputy Consul General of Israel to Florida Guy Gilady said Israel is "grateful" for the state's strong stance.

"Your recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, speaks not just truth, but is another shining example of how you are making Florida the most pro-Israel state in the US," Gilady said. "The state of Florida has long been a stalwart supporter of the one Jewish nation. We see a much deeper sense of true friendship that defines the current Florida-Israel relationship."
