Why is this different from the meaningless move the embassy to jerusalem bill which has been waived for 20 yrs

Reader comment on item: Why the (toothless) Iran sanctions bill matters

Submitted by Mark Schoenberg (Israel), Feb 15, 2015 at 10:30

It seems to me that sadly this is just another pre-election ploy to exploit American support for Israel for political gain and, in contrast to your conclusion, is totally meaningless and infantile, as was the move the embassy to Jerusalem bill, which had the same waiver, and which has been waived for close to 20 years, if not longer. If this bill is not totally disingenuous, as my cynicism suggests it is, and it really was necessary to add the waiver to get Democratic support, then American Jewry really needs to re-think its priorities in voting.
