April 25 (legislative day, APRIL 18), 1990 Placed on the calendar HCON 290 PCS Calendar No. 524 101st CONGRESS 2d Session H. CON. RES. 290 IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES April 25 (legislative day, APRIL 18), 1990 Received; and placed on the calendar CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the Congress concerning Jerusalem and the peace process. Whereas the State of Israel has declared Jerusalem to be its capital; Whereas from 1948 to 1967 Jerusalem was a divided city and Israeli citizens of all faiths were not permitted access to holy sites in the area controlled by Jordan; Whereas since 1967 Jerusalem has been a united city administered by Israel and persons of all religious faiths have been guaranteed full access to holy sites within the city; Whereas the President and the Secretary of State have demonstrated their strong desire to achieve a just and lasting peace in the Middle East and have worked diligently toward that end; Whereas ambiguous statements by the Government of the United States concerning the right of Jews to live in all parts of Jerusalem raise concerns in Israel that Jerusalem might one day be redivided and access to religious sites in Jerusalem denied to Israeli citizens; and Whereas such concerns inhibit and complicate the search for a lasting peace in the region: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress-- (1) acknowledges that Jerusalem is and should remain the capital of the State of Israel; (2) strongly believes that Jerusalem must remain an undivided city in which the rights of every ethnic religious group are protected; and (3) calls upon all parties involved in the search for peace to maintain their strong efforts to bring about negotiations between Israel and Palestinian representatives. Passed the House of Representatives April 24, 1990. Attest: DONNALD K. ANDERSON, Clerk.
