"They do that because U.S. imperialism needs Israel to be its watch dog in the Middle East. There are a lot of resources there, oil resources, human resources, billions of trillions of dollars to be made, to be protected for the United States. And so they don't care about the Palestinian people. In fact, I don't even believe the United States care about the Israeli people. We want Trump to reverse his racist decision, to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem which is against international law as well."

Storyline


Hundreds of people in Chicago took to the street on Tuesday to protest against the United States moving its embassy to Jerusalem.

The protesters, including Arab migrants from the Middle East and non-Arab U.S. citizens, held posters like "Stop killing Palestinian protesters," "No U.S. aid to Israel" and "U.S. and Israel: Hands off Jerusalem" to urge U.S. President Donald Trump to reverse the racist decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem which they believe goes against international law.

"Donald Trump is violating international law. As people in the United States, our obligation is to speak out again and again: 'You cannot do this in our name,'" said one protester.

"They do that because U.S. imperialism needs Israel to be its watch dog in the Middle East. There are a lot of resources there, oil resources, human resources, billions of trillions of dollars to be made, to be protected for the United States. And so they don't care about the Palestinian people. In fact, I don't even believe the United States care about the Israeli people. We want Trump to reverse his racist decision to move the embassy in Israel to Jerusalem which is against international law as well," said another protester.

On Monday, the United States opened its embassy in Jerusalem, triggering deadly clashes along the Israeli-Palestinian border, in which at least 61 Palestinians were reportedly killed and over 1,771 wounded.
