Republican senators who came to Israel for the official opening of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem seemed troubled by the lack of Democratic representation at the May 14 event.

“I don’t know why the Democrats will not be here, chose not to come. Every member of Congress had the option before them to come and be here. There was no way on earth we could have inaugurated this embassy without my being here to celebrate it. It’s too important,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said on Monday from Jerusalem.
