Tell President Trump: “Move the Embassy!” (CIDI)

May 10, 2017

Mat Staver, President
Christians in Defense of Israel

The White House has announced that President Trump will visit Israel later this month on his first overseas trip as Commander-in-Chief. The Washington Post reports he’ll also travel to Saudi Arabia and the Vatican “in an effort to unite Islam, Judaism and Christianity in the common cause of fighting ‘intolerance’ and radical extremism.”Christians in Defense of Israel is calling on Mr. Trump to announce during his visit that the U.S. will finally move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. We’re also urging Mr. Trump to make a formal declaration that the American government recognizes all of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

+ + Global Anti-Semitism Is Alive And Well

Every nation in the world designates its own capital without controversy — except Israel. The Jewish state continues to face international backlash over their right to claim Jerusalem as theirs. A recent U.N. resolution declared that “(a)ll legislative and administrative measures and actions” the Jewish state has taken regarding Jerusalem “are null and must be rescinded forthwith.”

That action was the latest example of the blatant anti-Semitism that’s still rife around the globe. That’s why Christians in Defense of Israel is asking friends of the Jewish state, like you <#first_name#>, to stand united with Israel at this crucial time and demand action from the President.

During the 2016 campaign and since taking office Mr. Trump has stated he supports moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Christians in Defense of Israel is resolved to stand in strong support of Israel, the Jewish people, and their right to choose their capital city.
