The President’s Announcement on Jerusalem

The decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and to move the U.S. Embassy there, is judged by diplomacy professionals and all those devoted to the Middle East peace process to be short-sighted and damaging to our goal of a two-state solution. We regret the disregard for history and all those involved. Representatives Price, Welch, Yarmuth, Lee and Blumenauer Issue Joint Statement on Trump Recognizing Jerusalem as Capital of Israel   WASHINGTON, D.C.  (Dec. 6, 2017) – On Wednesday, December 6, Representatives David Price (D-NC), Peter Welch (D-VT), John Yarmuth (D-KY), Barbara Lee (D-CA), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) issued the following joint statement following the announcement that President Trump will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.   “President Trump’s announcement demonstrates, once again, his complete disregard for long-standing American and international diplomatic practice. It unilaterally undermines prospects for a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and recklessly endangers U.S., Israeli, and

Support In these Uncertain Times

To all who have contacted us to offer their support in these uncertain times, we are grateful.    To be a Jew in these times is to suddenly find oneself a threatened minority once again, in this great country that we have cherished since her borders were first opened to our people. They were refugees, friendless and frightened, and the people of the United States of America welcomed them. Now within a lifetime the old sense of fear reasserts itself. With your help, we will overcome it; we will return strength for strength, encouragement for encouragement. We will stand with you as you with us, and together we will reach out to all who feel threatened in these dark days. Each of us, alone, is vulnerable; we must not leave each other alone. Hazak, hazak, v’nit’hazek, let us be strong, and let us strengthen each other,
