STATEMENT ON U.S. EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM
The Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis expresses great concern on the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem. This move will set the Middle East peace process back and may be completely scuttled. This will have grave repercussions for the area.
The rest of the world has decried this decision; the international community recognizes status of Jerusalem as part of the peace process which should be negotiated among the parties. East Jerusalem is claimed by the Palestinians and accepted by many in the world as the capital of a future Palestinian State.
Jerusalem is holy to Jews, Christians and Muslims, and it is utmost important that the negotiated status of Jerusalem is acceptable to all parties. A hasty decision to move the Embassy is counterproductive and will setback the peace process.
This morning 38 Palestinians protesting this move have been killed; the demonstrations are still going on and feared that many more lives will be lost. Recently the Palestinian leader Abbas stated this move as, “a declaration of withdrawal from the role the US has played in the peace process.” This move is seen by many in the world as US not being a fair broker in the peace process.
A Pastor who has used abhorrent language against Islam, Mormons and many other faiths is leading the prayers in Jerusalem. This may inflame many in the Muslim world, and extremists will use this for their propaganda.
We urge our government to start the peace negotiations with the international support as soon as possible so that this important part of the world does not spiral back into violence which has worldwide repercussions.
