#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 am Signing this because Israel is an Incredibly Horrible Terrorist Regime Masquerading as A Democracy, and as Victims of The very people that they themselves are Terrorizing. I am signing this because Israel daily commits the most heinously atrocious acts of pure evil , against the civilian population of the people’s of Palestine, and they are NEVER even as much as reprimanded for these vile acts of a pure hatred. I am also Signing this because I know that if Jerusalem is designated as the capital of “Israel” by The U.S., that this will squash any hope of a two state solution or Peace of EVER HAPPENING, and will initiate wide uproar ,unrest, and needless violence , resulting in mass bloodshed and deaths, Which Is the stark opposite of what the POTUS is claiming that will happen. The man is Pouring gasoline ontop of a Match and claiming it to be Water, in My opinion, bringing about a “Holy War”…. And For What? Smh

    Israel’s actions toward Gaza and the West Bank are deplorable. Stealing the homes and lands of the people of Palestine who have lived there for generations, who NEVER LEFT their homeland, yet are expected to just hand it over is insanity. Israel’s methods are nothing short of slow genocide..

    Israel is a failed state. It’s militaristic ploys are as hateful as any other fascist group. ALL peoples need to be recognized, honored, their land, state, and homes protected.
