Petition to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem

President Barack Hussein Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20500
(202) 456-1111

Dear Mr. President,

On October 23, 1995, the United States Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Relocation Act, requiring that the United States move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by May 1999. The law recognized that every nation has the right to designate its own capital and that Israel has so designated Jerusalem as its capital city.

In order to placate Israel’s and America’s enemies abroad, President Bill Clinton signed a national security waiver of the act in June 1999. This injustice has since been replicated by each succeeding President, including you, President Obama, every six months since the waiver was originally signed.

We believe that the time is long overdue for this injustice to be righted. We especially believe this time is important, as Israel’s enemies have been raising the rhetoric regarding Jerusalem.

This includes Egypt’s new President, Muhammad Morsi, who stated, “Our capital shall not be Cairo, Mecca or Medina. It shall be Jerusalem, Allah willing… Jerusalem is our goal. We shall pray in Jerusalem or else we shall die as martyrs on its threshold.”

Instead of inviting Morsi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood -- whose Palestinian branch, Hamas, is responsible for well over 1000 murders of Israeli and American citizens -- to the White House, as you have done, it is time to tell him and others that their rhetoric is inexcusable and unacceptable.

Let’s not forget the recent history of Jerusalem, when Jordanians desecrated Jewish holy sites and placed severe restrictions on Christians’ religious liberties.

It is time for America to take a stand for our friend Israel and against our common enemies. It is time to tell the world that there is only one owner of Jerusalem and that is Israel.

We the undersigned hereby call on you to forgo any further waivers of the Jerusalem Embassy Act and to once and for all relocate the American Embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

You should do this not only because it is law, but it is the right thing to do.
