Bridgeview, IL—(ENEWSPF)—December 8, 2017

President Trump’s decision to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, which he declared as the capital of Israel, is in gross violation of international law. This move contravenes decades of bipartisan U.S. foreign policy that considers Jerusalem a final-status negotiation issue. We will not stand for it.

Declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s capital not only transgresses the rights of Palestinians who are being ethnically cleansed in their own homeland, but also threatens U.S. national security and interests. It severely jeopardizes its standing around the world, especially within the Muslim World, and ends any possibility of being an “honest broker” in the Middle East. In fact, it’s widely reported that president Trump’s own foreign policy advisers cautioned him against this reckless decision and it will not bring about the “ultimate deal,” which Trump often brags about; rather, it sends a message to Palestinians that their self-determination is no longer a priority in peace negotiations. We will rally with community members and partners to say no to this reckless decision.

The rally will take place on Saturday, December 9 at 6 p.m. at the Universal School, 7350 West 93rd Street in Bridgeview.
