Israelis applying for visas at the United States Embassy have not received them since July 11. The American embassy has stopped issuing ordinary visas and cut back on ongoing services to American citizens due to staff reductions because of the security situation.

I bet there’s no limit to how many muslins mr. mulato is letting in, legally or otherwise.
...and Saudis STILL come here without needing visas, I think.
I believe you are correct.
Not to mention the illegals let in with no paperwork of any kind.
Why haven’t the turds at the U.S. embassies in El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico done this same thing? Don’t those morons know that those places are war zones and are so dangerous that even the M13 gangbangers don’t want to live there? All of the M13 types are running up here to get the border patrol to change their diapers it’s so scary down there.
Who does obama and jarret hate more - America or Israel? Hard to tell these days.
Security has always very tight at the consulate. I took photos of it across the street three years ago and the guards ran across the street and made me erase the photos.
Which of course, can be recovered easily as long as you do not take new photos afterwards. A nice little thing to know,,,,
I wonder if any ME countries have this restriction.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
there’s no limit on how many thousands of islamonazi terrorists he’s letting, or bringing, into USA
O.K....I admit I am very naïve. But why would that be?
So I guess Iraqi Christians and Israeli Jews ought to just fly to Mexico, hire a coyote and come in through TX like everybody else.
Don't know, I could have taken just as easy from my hotel room. More interesting, you can take photos of the US Embassy (on the beach in Tel Aviv) and the guards do nothing.
This is insane!!!
US has stopped issuing visas to Israelis, except in emergencies
Move is due to staff reductions at the embassy in light of the security situation
The US embassy in Tel Aviv is not issuing travel visas to Israelis until further notice except in emergency cases.
In a statement, the embassy said it is only issuing urgent visas, and applicants can email the embassy to see if their circumstances fit that definition. The cause of the delay is that the embassy has reduced its staff due to the security situation, and there are not enough employees to conduct the personal interview stage of the process.
The reduction is staff is a precaution during wartime, to reduce the number of those affected in case of a direct attack.
Even in emergency cases, the embassy said issuing a visa could take two to three days at least.
In a related development, there are reports that residents of countries like Ireland and China are having trouble getting travel visas to the US because of a problem with the US Immigration Authority`s database. Some observers have speculated that the problem resulted from an attack by hackers.
A week ago, the US State Department issued a travel warning to US citizens against travelling to Israel and the West Bank. Most other countries that issued travel warnings, including Japan and Australia, merely warned their citizens not to visit within 40 km of the border with Gaza, as well as not to visit Gaza City itself.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry has also issued a travel warning to Israelis who wish to visit Turkey, due to the tense atmosphere there since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge.
They did this before except they were working with Maduro not to let people out -Cuba style.
U.S. Embassy in Venezuela to stop issuing some tourism visas as unrest continues
BY JIM WYSS
BOGOTA, Colombia — One day after the U.S. Embassy in Caracas said it was suspending appointments for first-time applicants of tourism visas due to lack of staff, Venezuelan authorities called it a reprisal but also said they would seek solutions.
In a statement Sunday, the U.S. Embassy said it could no longer accept B-1 and B-2 tourism visa requests from first-time applicants until further notice because of a lack of consular officials. Venezuela ejected three consular officers last month on allegations that they had been fueling ongoing protests, and the embassy said the Venezuelan government was delaying issuing visas for new embassy staff.
On Monday, National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello called the decision a reprisal but said the government was willing to work with the State Department.
If they need to send more officials to Venezuela to take care of visas, then we will very gladly collaborate with them, he said, according to El Universal newspaper.
State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf denied that the consular pullback was retribution amid souring bilateral relations.
This decision was completely resource-based, personnel-based. It was just a numbers issue, she said. We just dont have the manpower now because our folks were expelled and we dont have new people that have replaced them to just handle the applicants.
The U.S. Embassy in Caracas was not authorized to provide additional details.
To stop Palestinians from coming to the US while they are in a foaming at the mouth rage. They do not differenciate between jews and Muslims because they do not recognize Israel. Get born in Jerusalem and your passport is marked Palestine.
Diplomatic blindness is institutionalized in America.
Like lining up federal agents in airports to spot ebola, as we smuggle and bus immigrants in over the border without paperwork to dump across the country, with those same federal agents.
They did this in 2010. It’s retribution, and there is a pattern. So sad for Israel.
White House Disputes Report That U.S. Stopped Issuing Visas to Israeli Scientists
“This would seem to be another example of the unprecedented, harsh, and hostile posture the Obama administration has adopted toward Israel,” RJC Executive Director Matthew Brooks said in a written statement.
“President Obama continues to extend a friendly hand to Mideast dictatorships like Iran and Syria, while slapping our most important strategic ally there and fellow democracy in the face.”
The new controversy comes as a new survey shows that a majority of U.S. Jews approve of Obama administration’s handling of U.S.-Israel relations.
The administration blatantly used the denial of visas to preasure the return of the narco president Zelaya.

Interesting. As I understand it the Embassy in Tel Aviv, can't put it in Jerusalem for fear of offending Arabs, deals with Israelis and most issues for Americans in Israel. Yes, it's clearly stated on the Embassy site that tourist visas and routine problems for American citizens won't be dealt with.
Due to the current security situation in Tel Aviv, U.S. Embassy Tel Aviv remains open but is operating at reduced staffing until further notice, and has canceled routine visa application processing and American Citizen services. Emergencies involving an American citizen and visa applications will be considered on a case by case basis. If you had a scheduled visa appointment, you will receive an email informing you of the appointment cancellation, and another email with a new scheduled appointment. If the appointment is not convenient for you, you may reschedule your appointment through the scheduling system. You are not required to pay a new fee. We will update the website and our facebook on any developments. To ask for an emergency appointment, please email NIVTelAviv@state.gov (for visas) or AMCTelAviv@state.gov (for U.S. Citizens Services) and explain the nature of your emergency. We will respond to your email quickly with additional instructions.
We also have a consulate in Jerusalem. It deals with residents of the Palestinian Authority, also I'm told Israeli arabs. Doubt that's official, I'm sure an American citizen visiting Israel could access their services. Don't know if an Israeli could get a tourist visa there, maybe, but a palestinian could.
Assuming it's too dangerous to service Israelis and American citizens in Tel Aviv, I thought I'd check the Jerusalem Consulate's website to see if they used the same text but surprise, I can't find it. Solicitations to visit the US are there, but no notice of the suspension of visa issuance. I'm sure the rules are the same, they just forgot to tell the palestinians. Then again, maybe it's only Israeli tourists we don't want at the present time.
This is nothing but Obama & Jean F’in Kerry thumbing their nose at Netanyahu. Orders from above: stick it to dem Joooz.
I heard that Jarret’s family came from Iran. I wonder if this is true? Is she a Muslim? If so it explains a lot. Also if Obama was a Muslim as well as Jarret and they say they are Christians then why hasn’t a Fatwa been put on them?
