Obama won't move embassy to J'lem yet

A 1995 US law recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital and ordered that the embassy be relocated there. But the law also permits the president to delay the move for six-month periods, based on national security grounds.
Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush invoked the clause during their presidencies.
