iPetition Jews can live anywhere in Judea and Samaria Rabbi jonathan Ginsburg

1. In 1917, the Balfour Declaration stated that a homeland for the Jewish people should be re-established in the lands of biblical Israel (an area including Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.) This was confirmed by the League of Nations in 1922 and the U.N. Charter.

2. The Arab nations rejected the U.N. plan and in 1948 invaded the new Jewish State, inciting the local Arab population to flee and thus creating the artificial “refugee problem.”

3. From 1948-1967 Jordan illegally occupied Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem desecrating and destroying Jewish and Christian religious sites and barring Jews from their historic homeland.

4. In 1967 Jordan invaded Israel. Israel fought a successful defensive war in which it reacquired its original sovereignty over Judea, Samaria, and Jerusalem, reestablishing Jerusalem as its eternal, undivided capital, a fact recognized by the U.S. Congress in 1995.


We, the undersigned, request that the U.S. government support the right of Jews to live anywhere in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria;

Furthermore, we request that the U.S. government fulfill the legislation overwhelmingly passed in December, 1995 supporting Jerusalem as the eternal, undivided capital of Israel and move the U.S. Embassy there, and further request that the President stop invoking the national security waiver to prevent the Embassy's relocation to Jerusalem.
