J Street welcomes Trump’s ‘prudent’ delay in moving US embassy

The American Jewish group J Street welcomes Trump’s decision not to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem for now, and says it is in keeping with longstanding bipartisan tradition.

“We are glad that the administration has heeded the advice of veteran officials in the diplomatic and security communities, and decided to maintain the prudent policy of its predecessors on this issue,” the hawkish organization says in a statement.

J street warns that relocating the American embassy in the absence of a final peace agreement “carries the risk of sparking potential violence.”
