The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has commended United States President Donald Trump for recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The separatist group also congratulated the state of Israel for the recognition.

In a statement issued on Saturday, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful thanked Trump for recognising Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel, and for his plans to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

He said: “We believe that many more countries will emulate your courageous act, and we also hope that 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.

“By what you have done, Mr. Donald J. Trump as American President, you 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.”

IPOB recalled that “in 1995, the US Congress passed a law called the ‘Jerusalem Embassy Act.' The law required the US 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.”

It also pointed out that from Bill Clinton to George W. Bush and to Barack Obama, no US president had the guts to enforce that law until a few days ago. “President Donald J. Trump was only enforcing a law that the US Congress had given their presidents green light to act on since 1995. By taking action when and where others couldn’t, President Donald J. Trump has become the living hero of American democracy.”
