As-salāmu ʿalaykum. Fourteen years ago, we founded American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) as a small, all-volunteer organization to begin the important work of educating, organizing, and mobilizing the Muslim community in the United States to advocate for Palestinian rights.  By the grace of God, and thanks to our supporters’ generosity, we’ve now grown to a professional organization with a dedicated staff of nine, more than a $1 million annual operating budget, and an office in our nation’s capital to better position ourselves to influence our country’s policies. We fill an...
Policy options for Congress on Israeli settlements after Department of State reversal on legal opinion that settlements are “inconsistent with international law’ November 20, 2019 American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) condemns in the strongest terms Monday’s decision by the Department of State to reverse a four-decade-old legal opinion that Israel’s settlements in Occupied Palestinian Territory are “inconsistent with international law”. AMP reaffirms that Israel’s settlements in the Palestinian West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are illegal. Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva...
In recent months, dozens of Burgerim fast-food chains have been popping up in the United States with many targeting Muslim communities through their “halal” menus. Burgerim, which translates to “many burgers” in Hebrew, is an Israeli-founded and Israeli-owned company, and continues to operate in Israel with several restaurants open across the region. While Burgerim in the U.S. is technically registered as a separate legal entity from the restaurant chain in Israel, the fact remains that Burgerim was founded on stolen Palestinian land, on the site of massacres, and has benefited from an...
Policy statement on H.Res.326 Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding United States efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a negotiated two-state solution October 21, 2019 American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) applauds the intent of Reps. Lowenthal, Bass, and Connolly to put forward a constructive resolution to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian issue in a just and lasting manner by introducing H.Res.326. This type of congressional initiative is much-needed as a response both to the Trump administration and the Israeli government adopting...
American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) calls on Members of Congress not to cosponsor the misleadingly entitled Anti-Semitism Awareness Act of 2019 (S.852 and H.R.4009). AMP also calls on Members of Congress who have cosponsored this bill to withdraw their sponsorship from legislation which could harm the First Amendment right of students to speak and advocate for Palestinian rights.  AMP is a national organization which educates the public about the just cause of Palestine and the rights of self-determination, liberty and justice. AMP upholds inherent human rights for all people...
On July 16, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) introduced H.Res.496, reaffirming that people in the United States “have the right to participate in boycotts in pursuit of civil and human rights at home and abroad, as protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.” As of the August congressional recess, 15 additional Representatives have cosponsored the resolution. ASK: During the August recess, attend town hall meetings and schedule in-district meetings with your Representative. Thank them if they have already cosponsored H.Res.496 and ask them to cosponsor it if they have not yet. ...
Executive Summary For decades, Israel has mistreated US citizens, killing and severely injuring both human rights defenders and young Palestinian Americans spending time with their families in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. In addition, Israel has systematically discriminated against US citizens on the basis of ethnicity, religion, and political viewpoint by denying them entry to Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territory it controls. This discrimination has impacted Palestinian Americans most severely, denying them opportunities to visit, work, and live in their homeland, and...
