Grunstein and Weiss have meticulously researched and expertly woven together various narratives to shed light on the political drama that unfolded surrounding the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995. This landmark legislation, first introduced by Senator Jon Kyl, garnered bipartisan support and was overwhelmingly passed by Congress. The authors paint a vivid picture of the arduous process that spanned over two decades before the act was finally implemented.

Drawing inspiration from Senator Kyl’s writings, interviews, and speeches, “Because It’s Just and Right” presents a compelling case for the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The authors delve into the significance of this decision from historical, legal, and moral perspectives, debunking false narratives along the way.

Governor Mike Huckabee, in his inspiring testimonial, recalls the promises made by both Democratic and Republican Presidents to recognize Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel and the Jewish people. It was under President Trump’s administration that the embassy was finally moved, fulfilling a longstanding commitment. Huckabee recounts a conversation with the President, where he expressed his belief that moving the embassy was the right thing to do.

The endorsements for “Because It’s Just and Right” are numerous and esteemed. Former US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman, describes the book as “essential reading for a complete understanding of why Jerusalem is, and must always remain, the undivided, eternal capital of the Jewish State.” Senator Joe Lieberman, another key player in enabling bipartisan support for the Act, praises the authors for their dramatic storytelling and emphasizes the book’s theme of doing what is just and right.

Stuart Force, the father of Taylor Force ob”m, offers a poignant testimonial, stating that until the release of Farley Weiss and Len Grunstein’s scholarly work, there was a dearth of sources addressing the complexities of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.
