Muslim groups will hold a rally on Saturday December 16, 2017, at The Capitol Ellipse near the White House to protest President Donald Trump’s recent announcement to declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel and his intention of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Join thousands of Muslims and allies from all across the United States for a national demonstration at The White House to tell Donald Trump that we do not recognize his declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.
The Trump administration’s decision to declare Jerusalem as Israel’s capital last Wednesday has provoked a response from national Muslim groups and communities across the nation. We will rally together at The Ellipse on the south side of The White House and then march together along Pennsylvania Ave up to the US Capitol.
