Oregon clergy issue Palestinian rights statement

July 2, 2018 --

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon,

Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) supports the Palestinians’ right to demonstrate peacefully in their decades-long conflict with Israel, and we call for an end to violence in the region.

We believe that the decision by the current administration to unilaterally move the United States Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem was an unwise and prejudicial action that makes a peace settlement even more difficult to achieve, and that this decision has led to more violence. We are indeed seeing the tragic results of the move, which dashed the decades-long hope of the Palestinians for a shared capital of two states in Jerusalem.
