Sometimes, the mind is boggled:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slammed Obama’s decision to reopen the U.S. embassy in Cuba, suggesting that it was a “slap in the face” to Israel.

I hear that non sequitur is a Latin term but no one knows what it means.

Evidently, down in Texas they are of the opinion that Jerusalem is a part of Israel and that our embassy in Tel Aviv is the misplaced equivalent of putting the United States Embassy to the Holy See in Croatia.

Let me put it to you this way: No country in the world except for Israel has recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Here’s a list of the 106 countries that have diplomatic missions in Cuba.

It’s true that Israel is not one of them. But I suspect that will change before Ted Cruz ever gets to become president of the United States.
