Less than 24 hours ago, President Trump has made a decision to officially recognize the city of Jerusalem as the official capital of the State of Israel. He also gave an order to begin relocating the United States embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Benjamin Netanyahu gave a speech praising President Trumps decision, stating that this decision is critical to establishing peace between the Arabs and Israelis.
WASHINGTON — President Trump on Wednesday formally recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversing nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and setting in motion a plan to move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to the fiercely contested Holy City.
“Today we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” Mr. Trump said from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. “This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do. It’s something that has to be done.”
The president cast his decision as a break with decades of failed policy on Jerusalem, which the United States, along with virtually every other nation in the world, has declined to recognize as the capital since Israel’s founding in 1948. That policy, he said, brought us “no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians” (Washington Post).
Within the last 12 hours, violent protests around Jerusalem and what's left of the current state of Palestine have erupted. This decision will not help, but destroy the peace process and the possibility of a two-state solution in Israel/Palestine.
WE ASK THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP RENOUNCE HIS DECISION TO RECOGNIZE JERUSALEM AS THE OFFICIAL CAPITAL OF ISRAEL.
This decision will allow Israel to destroy Al-Aqsa mosque, which will cause an uproar throughout all Arab countries, and war on Israel. Please join us in preventing a devastating war which could lead hundreds of thousands of innocent men, women, and children dead!!
