Israeli, Jewish Peace groups denounce US Embassy move

Trump: moving the Embassy won’t hide the occupation!
 
Today, May 14, 2018 at 15:15 to 18:00‏‏‏ (Israel/Palestine time),  a demonstration is held against Trump’s reckless and cynical act of moving the American Embassy to Jerusalem! 
The protest was held at 13 Eliyahu Lankin Street in Jerusalem, initiated by  ATL (All That’s Left: Anti-Occupation Collective).
 
In parallel, American Jewish activists are holding a protest against the Embassy move in Washington D.C. initiated by IfNotNow

Jerusalem is the home of both Jews and Palestinians – and must be recognized as home to both peoples. Moving the embassy plays into the hands of right-wing extremists and the Israeli government’s attempts to erase Palestinian ties and claims to the city. This will only add bloodshed and entrench the occupation!
 
The takes place happen only 24 hours after Jerusalem Day, during which thousands of Israelis marched through Palestinian East Jerusalem and the Muslim Quarter of the Old City shouted racist and hateful slogans. It takes place as Israeli snipers on the Gaza border go on shooting and killing dozens of Palestinian demonstrators. 
 
Instead of condemning these actions – the Trump administration has once again aligned itself with the most right-wing government in Israel’s history, and undermined the last shred of Palestinian trust in the U.S. 
 
We cannot stay silent. Let’s stand together against with a message of hope and solidarity. 
 
Join members of All That’s Left as we stand in solidarity with Palestinians and Israeli activists in protesting the embassy move and demanding a just end to the occupation!
