Thousands of Indonesians rally at US Embassy over Jerusalem

Thousands of Indonesians rally at US Embassy over Jerusalem

The move upended decades of US policy, and a longstanding global consensus, that the fate of Jerusalem be decided in negotiations.

The status of Jerusalem, a city holy to Jews, Muslims and Christians, is one of the thorniest barriers to a lasting Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said the Palestinians will be looking for a new peace broker instead of the United States and would seek a United Nations Security Council resolution over Trump's decision.

Trump's announcement Wednesday overturned decades of US policy, and a longstanding worldwide consensus, that the fate of Jerusalem be decided as a part of a peace deal between Israel and Palestine.

"We call on stopping this decision fully because this will usher in the beginning of a time of awful transformations, not just on the Palestinian level, but on the region as a whole".

On Saturday, Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he had heard "voices of condemnation over President Trump's historic announcement" but had "not heard any condemnation for the rocket firing against Israel that has come and the terrible incitement against us".

In more than two years of intermittent attacks, Palestinians have killed more than 50 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British tourist in stabbings, shootings and car-ramming attacks. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of a future state, along with the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Moeen aware England players must improve behaviour
Despite England's precarious position, Lehmann said his side can't afford to take their focus off the job at hand. The ongoing Ashes series between Australia and England has been particularly humbling one for the Three Lions.

Both French President Macron and EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini have criticised Trump's decision, and there have been ongoing tensions between Netanyahu and European Union officials over Israeli settlement building in the West Bank.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended. In a statement U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres said this was a moment of "great anxiety". In the West Bank, there were dozens of injuries, but no deaths.

Hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, including those who fled or were expelled from their homes after Israel's founding, as well as their descendants.

"The ministers agreed on demanding that the United States rescind its decision on Jerusalem...and the calling on the worldwide community to recognise the state of Palestine...with east Jerusalem as its capital". However, Washington is expected to veto any such measure. "I strongly believe this is going to move the ball forward for the peace process".

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riad Malki told reporters in Cairo on Saturday that Abbas would not meet with Pence when he visits the region this month, adding that the Palestinian leadership decided there would be "no formal communications" with United States officials.

Regarding the Iraninan threat, Netanyahu said that the world must do what we can to "stop Iran that calls for the destruction of Israel. I think we should see what is presented and see if we can advance this peace". Peace is based on reality'.
