IPOB hails Trump for naming Jerusalem as Israel's capital



The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has welcomed the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel capital by President Donald Trump, saying he has ‘shown that courageous leadership is not predicated on public opinion or political correctness, but on justice, equity and fairness.’

“It is a thing of great joy and a refreshing reminder that our world still has the regenerative capacity to birth transformational leadership,” the group said.

IPOB Media & Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement congratulated Israel.

Below is the full statement by IPOB:

In 1995, the US congress passed a law called the “Jerusalem Embassy Act. The law required the U.S. to move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem by a set deadline, but conceded that the move could be put off for six months at a time as long as the President “determines and reports to Congress in advance that such suspension is necessary to protect the national security interests of the United States.

From Bill Clinton to George W. Bush to Barack Obama, no US president has had the guts to enforce that law until a few days ago. Many people do not even know that president Donald J. Trump was only enforcing a law that the US congress had given their presidents green light to act on since 1995. The media will never tell you this. By taking action when and where others couldn’t, President Donald J. Trump has become the living hero of American democracy.

Many may be upset that he did what he did, but we the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are ecstatic. It is a thing of great joy and a refreshing reminder that our world still has the regenerative capacity to birth transformational leadership.

We salute you, Mr. President. Thank you for recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel, and thank you most of all for the plans to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. We believe that many more countries will emulate your courageous act, and we also hope that soon, very soon, the Republic of Biafra will be born out of wanton repression, and we will become Israel’s strongest ally on the African continent with a beautiful embassy in the holy city of Jerusalem. Habakkuk 2:3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.”

By what you have done, Mr. Donald J. Trump as American President, have shown that courageous leadership is not predicated on public opinion or political correctness, but on justice, equity and fairness. Every right-thinking person who is not blinded by parochial ethnocentric biases will agree with you. We believe that what is right is right and what is wrong is wrong. And for those who have sworn to make this world a living hell for truth, justice and equity, read Isaiah 48:22: There is no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked. And so we say “wait, your karma is on the way.”


Once again, Mr. President, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) say, congratulations. We stand shoulder to shoulder with you. Shalom.
