Over 130 Jewish Studies scholars sign statement criticizing Trump's Jerusalem decision

Over 130 Jewish Studies scholars sign statement criticizing Trump's Jerusalem decision

Two Palestinians were shot dead in Gaza and dozens were wounded in the West Bank.

According to the Palestinian Red Crescent, 157 people were injured on Sunday in confrontations with Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza.

"Everyone knows that the resolution of the Middle East crisis goes through negotiations and the recognition of two states", he said.

The protests were part of a Palestinian "day of rage" following Trump's announcement that he planned to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital might hinder the United States drive for an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Sunday.

Protests, sometimes violent, have flared across the region since Trump announced the new policy on Wednesday.

Israel has long claimed all of Jerusalem as its undivided capital, while the Palestinians see the annexed eastern sector of the city as the capital of their future state.

While Trump's announcement was warmly welcomed in Israel as an acknowledgement of its longtime seat of government and the ancient capital of the Jewish people, it was greeted with outrage from Palestinians who considered it a slap in the face and an abandonment of the longtime American role as mediator in the conflict. As they hurled stones, security forces responded with tear gas and water cannons. Israel says that all of Jerusalem is its capital, while Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state.

He said the USA was not prejudging final-status negotiations about the city's final borders and expressed hope that world leaders understand the U.S.is committed to moving forward with a peace plan he expects to be unveiled in the new year.

"Jerusalem is of huge religious and thus emotional significance to Jews, Muslims, and Christians alike".

The new United States stance, criticized by Palestinians, Arab leaders and others as gravely damaging any prospects for peace, has given rise to swelling protests across the region in recent days.

"I think that the decision that was taken on Wednesday risks to compromise this effort", he added.

The Turkish leader has left diplomatic niceties aside in warning his USA counterpart of the dangers of the move, using the backyard-style rhetoric he usually keeps for bitter enemies.

Trump's move has been hailed by Israel, but has outraged Palestinian leaders who say president Mahmud Abbas will refuse to meet US Vice President Mike Pence when he visits the region this month.

Clashes resumed in the afternoon, with security forces chasing and arresting a handful of protesters and lobbing tear gas.

Lebanon is home to hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees, including those who fled Israel after it was founded, and their descendants. In Paris, Netanyahu talked about his quiet but improving relations with Arab countries that look to Israel as an ally against Iran.

The British ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, said flat out that Britain disagrees with Trump's move on Jerusalem and the embassy location.
