RALLY WED, NOV 10 @ 10:00AM EST
IN FRONT OF ISRAELI CONSULTATE
800 2ND AVENUE (41ST – 42ND STREETS) NEW YORK CITY
ALL ARE URGED TO ATTEND! ENCOURAGE ISRAEL TO STAND STRONG!
Americans for a Safe Israel/AFSI is holding a simultaneous rally with The Sovereignty Movement to oppose the Biden Administration’s dangerous intent to open a U.S. consulate for Palestinian Arabs in the heart of Jerusalem. The Israeli rallies, (this will be the third) organized by the Sovereignty movement, have gained the support of many organizations. Among the supporters are Israeli NGOs Im Tirtzu and Regavim, and ZOA in America.
“Establishing an American consulate for the Palestinian Authority in Jerusalem is the de facto partition of the city and its transformation into the capital of Palestine,” said Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar from the Sovereignty Movement.
“Israeli society is a friend of the American people. This is not something that one does to friends. We call upon the American administration – if it is so urgent for you to open a special consulate for the Palestinians – open it in Ramallah, not in Jerusalem,” said Im Tirtzu CEO Matan Peleg.
Americans For A Safe Israel/AFSI stands firmly with our Israeli compatriots in opposing any attempt by the U.S. to legitimize an entity that supports terrorism, pays terrorists to kill Jews and denies the Holocaust. The opening of a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem denies its status as the eternal, unified capital of Israel, the homeland of the Jewish people. Opening this consulate does would not promote peace in any way and would only encourage the PA’s goal of eliminating Israel.
Thank you to Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) who led the effort and secured 200 U.S. House Republican signatures on a bill to oppose the opening of a Palestinian Consulate in Jerusalem. Zeldin stated that Biden’s intent “would be inconsistent” with the Jerusalem Embassy Act of 1995.
THE UNITED STATES MUST STOP PRESSURING ISRAEL.
ISRAEL HAS THE LEGAL AND SOVEREIGN RIGHT TO DETERMINE
THE STATUS OF ITS ETERNAL CAPITAL.
