Speaker after speaker who spoke out at a rally in Dearborn on Tuesday to protest President Donald Trump's plan to declare Jerusalem Israel's capital asked a similar question: Why now and what about the peace process?
"What urgency was there?" said Dearborn Mayor John O'Reilly Jr., referring to Trump's unilateral decision to recognize bitterly contested Jerusalem as the capital.
In addition to O'Reilly, community leaders included Dearborn City Council President Susan Dibaja, councilman Mike Sareini and the Committee for Jerusalem, which hosted the event. Other speakers included Michigan Council on American-Islamic Relations director Dawud Walid.
