White House Removed The Name 'Israel' from Tracscript of Jerusalem speech

Everything about Israel is in the hand of God. He is the one that can determine the fate of Israel. Already it is determined already and stated in the Bible and no one can change it. The world can try whatever they like, but the creator of Israel has a purpose for all things concerning the nation of Israel.

The White House on Friday afternoon issued a correction removing "Israel" from a transcript describing the location of a speech President Obama delivered in Jerusalem. 

The initial transcript of Obama's speech at former Israeli President Shimon Peres's memorial service said the speech was delivered at Mount Herzl in Jerusalem, Israel.

The White House released its initial transcript just before 8 a.m. on Friday. Then shortly after 4:30 p.m., the White House released a "corrected" transcript that struck out "Israel."

Israel declared Jerusalem its capital in 1950, but the U.S. and other countries do not recognize it as such and maintain their embassies in Tel Aviv.

Obama led a U.S. delegation to Peres's service on Friday that included Secretary of State John Kerry and former President Bill Clinton. Obama was one of several speakers to eulogize the former Israeli leader.

"The last of the founding generation is now gone," Obama said during his speech, saying the former leader longed for "an Israel that is secure in a just and lasting peace with its neighbors."

"And so now this work is in the hand of Israel’s next generation, in the hands of Israel's next generation and its friends," Obama said.
