#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.

    I sam deeply saddened , I have been actively watching the Palestine-Israeli situation for ages , and there is no end to Israeli machinations,and European and American continuous non-compliance to the international agreements they have so solemnly signed themselves. And I wonder about the USA with Trump in its lead -and what will happen to the World? Thank God there’s still freedom of speech (I suppose at least)! And the critical Jewish groups who prove that it is just the Israeli politics and not the Jewish people themselves who are ready to treat the Palestinians very similarly to what they themselves have been treated during the Second World War,( when we all -or at least quite many of us -most profoundly sympathised with them. Enough said,

    Trump wants to create conflagrations everywhere he can. Its good for the weapons industry. This plan to move the Embassy to Jerusalem is horrible. Jerusalem is supposed to be the spiritual centerof Israel/Palestine. This decision of Trump has the opposite effect. I oppose his decision.
