Jewish Members of the 114th Congress 32, while only 2 are GOP. The issue is in the GOP many are evans and fundies, so of course they vote for Jerusalem to be the capital of Israel. Also GOP do not like Muslims. Trump is now a GOP, never use to be. So if you are wondering about the congressional vote, no need to wonder anymore. PS: really most of the GOP use religion as a political crutch, but as you can see look who they have leading them. Whatever blood is spilled by this move, I hope it affects Jews as much as Muslims, we know it will affect non jewish Americans.
