BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:40 P.M.) – The state of Florida’s cabinet announced on Wednesday that they were recognizing Jerusalem as the “eternal and undivided capital” of Israel.

According to the Jerusalem Post, Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said that state governor, Republican Ron DeSantis had supported Trump’s decision to relocate the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem when he represented Florida in Congress last year.

“We have made it clear that we stand with our closest ally in the Middle East. I too believe in standing strong with our friend and partner and ally,” said Patronis, speaking at Tuesday’s cabinet meeting in the state capital of Tallahassee.

“As a state we must continue to demonstrate our broad and deep support of our ally and economic partner by implementing pro-Israel policies,” Patornis said. “Today we declare to the world that Florida stands united with Israel.”

Deputy Consul General of Israel to Florida Guy Gilady told Florida politicians, “I speak for a grateful nation half a world away by expressing our deepest appreciation for your friendship. Your recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, speaks not just of truth, but is another shining example of how you are making Florida the most pro-Israel state in the US,” Gilady said.

“The state of Florida has long been a stalwart supporter of the Jewish nation. We see a much deeper sense of true friendship that defines the current Florida-Israel relationship,” he explained.
