The Greater Los Angeles Area office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA), the Los Angeles chapter of the Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), Los Angeles Chapter of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s Palestine Israel Network (EPF PIN) and the Friends of Sabeel, North America (FOSNA) today condemned Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s endorsement of Jerusalem as the site of the U.S. embassy to Israel

In a statement, CAIR-LA Executive Director Hussam Ayloush said:

“As mayor of Los Angeles, Mayor Garcetti must represent all Angelenos, not just those who support Israel’s illegal occupation. We call on him to retract his statement of support and to stand against Trump’s reckless decision and hold a meeting with the interfaith community to discuss his statements.”
