#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.

    The U.S. government must break free from the AIPAC shackles and realize that orginization cares much more about zionism and israel than it does about the welfare of the U.S. or of the world

    La colonisation par Israël de la Palestine est illégale et appartient à des pratiques des siècles passés, devenues inacceptables. Israël a bénéficié de l’ONU pour sa création en 1948, la Palestine doit également être soutenue par l’ONU pour sa reconnaissance comme Etat souverain en 2018.

    I signed because Jerusalem is Palestine.. Even Jerusalem is Palestine am sure other religion (Christian, Jewish) can also praying. But if Jerusalem is Israel, am sure Israel will murder mosque of al aqsa.

    Jerusalem belongs to the Palestinians. The Zionist occupiers have no right to be there and should leave . They are invaders in someone else’s country

    Trump’s move was an “unwitting service to the Muslim world” which would lead to further unity among Muslims to counter the Israeli regime and defend the Palestinians’ rights as soon as possible InshaAllah.

    Make sure no other country follows suit … this is really just a diversion tactic of the Dotard to forget the Russia investigation or indeed his groping crimes
