Jewish scholars sign petition condemning Trump's announcement on al-quds

Hundreds Jewish scholars have condemned Trump’s declaration of US recognizing al-Quds as Israel’s capital.

Hundreds Jewish scholars have condemned Trump’s declaration of US recognizing al-Quds as Israel’s capital.

At least 110 signatories from universities and colleges of United States called on Trump to cancel the controversial decision, in a petition released on Thursday.

The petition stated that: "We write as Jewish Studies scholars to express our dismay at the Trump administration's decision to reverse decades of bipartisan US policy by declaring Jerusalem [al-Quds] the capital of Israel, and authorizing the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv,"

The statement adds "A declaration from the United States government that appears to endorse sole Jewish proprietorship over Jerusalem [al-Quds] adds insult to ongoing injury and is practically guaranteed to fan the flames of violence.”

The petition said the Israeli regime is committing "systematic inequalities" against Palestinian people.

"Palestinian residents of Jerusalem [al-Quds] endure systematic inequalities, including an inequitable distribution of the city's budget and municipal services, routine denial of building permits that are granted to Jewish residents, home demolitions, and legal confiscation of property for Jewish settlement," the petition argued.

"In addition, Palestinians in the West Bank, unlike Jewish Israeli settlers, require a special permit to visit al-Quds’s holy sites," it continued.
