#HandsOffJerusalem

Sign our statement opposing Trump’s dangerous actions!


We at CODEPINK oppose Trump’s plan to move the US embassy to Jerusalem or declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel. These actions contravene US law and will likely ignite a massive outbreak of violence. Jerusalem is holy to Muslims, Christians, and Jews. The UN and the international community recognize that the status of Jerusalem should be determined through negotiation.

If Trump moves the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem it will:

  • Increase the denial of political rights to Palestinian residents of Jerusalem as guaranteed under international law.
  • Encourage Israel’s unilateral annexation of Jerusalem in violation of international law.
  • Give a green light for Israel to continue its action to displace Palestinian Jerusalemites from the city. Currently, Israel is poised to revoke the residency permits of over 1,400 Palestinian Jerusalemites.
  • Embolden the extremist right wing in Israel who campaign for increased settlement expansion and annexation of Jerusalem.

For the sake of peace and Palestinian human rights, we oppose moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    This is wrong in so many ways and Trump knows it.

    We condemned the Trump’s recognition about Jerusalem. It did clearly against international law and all the resolutions of the UN Security Council.

    We should definitely be speaking out about what happened earlier this week — Donald Trump signing a piece of paper and showing off his signature with his usual pompous scowl, which characterizes his public demeanor — but what is the document that he actually signed? Here’s the scoop on that: “Hours after recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital Wednesday, and saying he had instructed the State Department to begin preparation to relocate the US embassy there, US President Donald Trump signed the waiver putting off any such move by another six months.” This citation is from this past Thursday’s Times of Israel, so what should we make of all this? Just more smoke and mirrors from the likes of Donald Trump? Or even more bluff and bluster about his plans to move the embassy? I say that both of the above apply to this past week’s dog and pony show.
