PROTEST FOR PALESTINE: Hands Off Jerusalem!

The Trump Administration has just announced that they will officially recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of the settler colonial State of Israel.

The San Francisco Bay Area rejects this move and asserts that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.

No to White Supremacy Here or in Our Homelands!
Boycott, Divest and Sanction Israel!
End the colonial occupation of Palestine!

First, this latest Trump outrage is not a done deal. He signed the letter waiving such a move that presidents sign every 6 months. Second, this stupid move of the CIA spy outfit known as the American Embassy everywhere, when it should be nowhere, would take years in finding a site and actually moving the 33 miles from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The way things are going in this country with the destruction of every single gain made by the workingclass since 1932 with the Republican Tax Bill and their promised destruction of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, which will certainly cause some kind of revolution, Israel may soon find all US aid to Israel terminated, which will mean the end of Nazi Israel, the American military base puppet in the Middle East which exists to protect US oil profits and promote US imperialism around the world.

Meanwhile, we should all remember that both the Democrats and Republicans are 100% pro-Israel at all levels of office. A good description of the pro-Israel actions of these twin capitalist parties of war and fascism and of the waiver described above may be found at:

"Both Parties Pushed Trump Toward Reckless Action on Jerusalem" by Stephen Zunes, 12/6/17 at
http://progressive.org/dispatches/both-parties-pushed-trumps-reckless-action-on-jerusalem-12-6-17/

Pertinent paragraphs are:
"For decades, the platforms of both the Republican and Democratic parties have called for recognition of Jerusalem as the undivided capital of Israel. Neither party has acknowledged that Jerusalem is the commercial, cultural, educational, and religious center for Palestinian life."

"In 2012, then-Los Angeles mayor and current California gubernatorial candidate Antonio Villaraigosa, violated party rules by inserting an amendment into the Democratic Party platform recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital without the requisite two-thirds majority. In the 2016 platform, nominee Hillary Clinton—an advocate of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem—successfully pushed for language declaring that Jerusalem “should remain the capital of Israel” while again saying nothing of Palestinian concerns."

Contrary to the above article, PEACE & FREEDOM PARTY and the GREEN PARTY are the VIABLE OPPOSITION because their party platforms ARE WHAT MAKES THEM VIABLE. They are the only 2 parties on the California ballot which support the Palestinian liberation struggle. You can register online at: https://covr.sos.ca.gov/?language=en-US
