Sen. Marco Rubio Meets with Israeli PM Netanyahu

Heh. The water bottle goes global.

That’s one way (maybe the only way) for Marco Rubio to make sure his visit to Israel gets covered by the Water-gate-happy media. Bumping water bottles with Bibi: total “career-ender.”

JERUSALEM — An influential Republican senator has called Jerusalem the capital of Israel, taking a stand on an explosive issue between Israel and the Palestinians.

The fate of Jerusalem is one of the most intractable issues in the Mideast conflict with both Israelis and Palestinians claiming rights to the city.

In his first official visit to the country, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told Israel’s president on Wednesday that Jerusalem is “of course the capital of your country.” He reiterated America’s bipartisan support for Israel.

Rubio, a favorite of his party’s conservative wing, met Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

His visit comes ahead of President Barack Obama’s scheduled visit in March. Obama has not made a similar declaration about Jerusalem.

  1. This is adorable. Whatever happens I just love that he turned the joke back on those goof offs who made it his watergate.

  2. That may gain Rubio a handful of Jewish American voters, who in 2008 voted 78% for Obama and in 2012, in spite of Obama’s criticized Israeli policy and bad economy, still gave him 70% of the Jewish American vote.
