According to media reports, Donald Trump is colluding with Netanyahu (again!) to circumvent not only International law and a multitude of UN resolutions, but also US law and decades of US foreign policy - to say nothing of willful disregard of thousands of years of history and the rights of millions of indigenous Palestinians - by declaring Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 

There is no country in the world that currently recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Since Israel conquered Jerusalem in 1967, the world has considered this sacred city as occupied territory. 

We cannot allow this moment to pass quietly. Please join us in protest against this unprecedented move against the native Christian and Muslim inhabitants of Jerusalem, who have been and continue to be pushed out of their ancestral homes to make way for Jewish settlers.
