Cruz calls Obama’s Cuba embassy decision ‘a slap in the face to Israel’

Republican Presidential candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz blasted the Obama Administration Wednesday for its decision to open a US embassy in Cuba, saying that for the US to "have an embassy in Havana before one in Jerusalem" was a "slap in the face" to Israel, according to the Washington-based political website The Hill.

The administration earlier in the day announced its intention to restore diplomatic relations with its long-time Caribbean nemesis and exchange ambassadors for the first time in over 50 years

Tel Aviv is currently home to the United States embassy, but the junior senator from the lone-star state has repeatedly called for the embassy to be moved to Jerusalem.
