On Wednesday, Dec 6th President Trump will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the first step in a process that will eventually move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. This move is a deliberate capitulation to the political whims of the far right, advancing extremist policies that will immediately put Israelis and Palestinians in danger.
We must stand up, as American Jews, and say #StopTheMove!
As American Jews, we oppose this decision because we refuse to be pawns in Trump’s careless foreign policy games.
We oppose this decision because of our commitment to achieving a peaceful Jerusalem for Palestinians, Israelis, and the entire region.
We oppose this decision because we cannot be silent in the face of policies that will put millions of Israelis and Palestinians live in danger.
We oppose this decision now. We will not wait to see how this plays out before taking a side; we know this is wrong and we take action now.
Join us and say unequivocally that this move is not being done in your name. American Jews oppose this incitement and we will fight for Palestinians and Israelis to live in a #Jerusalem4All.
