CAIR Action Alert: Contact Your Elected Representatives About Jerusalem
The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, as part of a wide coalition of Jewish, Christian and other American interfaith groups is calling on all Americans to urge their elected representatives in Congress to denounce President Trump’s plan to recognize, on behalf of the United States, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
President Trump’s actions will alter previous decades of U.S. policy on the holy city by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a move that could harm America’s role the Mideast peace process. CAIR believes that the U.S. must strive to maintain a status of impartiality as it seeks to find a peaceful resolution between Israeli and Palestinian leaders and their peoples.

Message to Members of Congress:
I stand with the coalition of American Jewish, Christian and other interfaith organizations including the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, in calling on your office to denounce President Trump’s plan to recognize, on behalf of the United States, Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I request that you do everything within your office’s power to denounce this reckless designation and pledge to prevent U.S. tax dollars from going towards moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
