News and Announcements

Jerusalem

The Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis expresses grave concern over President Trump’s decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  This is a hasty and counterproductive move.

The fate of Jerusalem has to be decided among Palestinians and Israelis. This aspect of the Middle East conflict is so sensitive that it has been left to be tackled separately and towards the end of the negotiations.  Until now all 86 embassies were stationed in Tel Aviv for this reason.

Moving the Embassy to Jerusalem is not going to jump start the peace process; more than likely it will thwart it. It can also increase violence and may increase terrorist activities and recruitment.

Jerusalem is sacred to all three monotheistic faiths. All stakeholders should be involved in the negotiations and decision about Jerusalem. A just and fair mediation is the only way to bring peace to this part of the world.  We pray for peace and equality for all in the region.
