Hardline Indonesian Muslim groups burn US, Israeli flags over Trump's Jerusalem move

According to Israeli rights group B'Tselem, Palestinians in Hebron have been subject to restrictions on movement, the closure of main streets, and the shutting down of a major commercial hub.

"The day after, they took him to Ofer prison". With an imperial hubris reminiscent of Lord Balfour's declaration a full century ago, Trump has declared that the US "views with favour" Israel's land theft, its expansionism, its settler-colonialism.

Mogherini made it clear later that she was displeased with the prime minister's bold presumptions about the EU getting in line behind the Trump administration on the matter of Jerusalem.

Pakistan has about 195 million Muslims or about 12 per cent of the total in the world that subscribe to the Islamic faith.

Israeli officials last week warned that the IDF would not let Iran establish a military presence within 40 kilometers of Israel's Golan Heights border. The mainly Shi'ite country is also competing for power and influence in the Middle East with predominantly Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, a close U.S. ally.

I say 70 years, not 20, because the UN partition plan of 1945 was already an attempt at dividing Palestine into two states. "Contribute any amount to stand with President Trump", the page urges Jewish Republicans, offering them to make donations ranging from $18 to $500.

The fallout from Trump's announcement continued Sunday with fresh demonstrations in a number of countries, including Turkey, Lebanon and Morocco. What we do know is that is the reckless actions of a man who has no regard for international law and no conception of what is in the US national interest must be repudiated. "We will not allow Trump and his group to destroy our Christmas".

A statement from the Coptic Orthodox Church called the Trump decision "inappropriate and without consideration for the feelings of millions of people".

Reynders said that, as the biggest aid donor to the Palestinians and a major partner of Israel, the EU has "a particular role to play" in the dispute.

Federica Mogherini said the bloc's member states would not recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital before a final status peace agreement.

Erdogan punctuated his message and added: "With their decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, the United States has become a partner in this bloodshed". If Moscow invests carefully, it might increase its influence in the region even further. "Peace is based on reality, peace is based on recognizing reality".

Last week, Nasrallah called for an "Islamic summit that would declare Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Palestine." .

Bethlehem Mayor Anton Salman maintains his city is safe, but he acknowledges that some tourists are concerned about security.

Violent clashes have erupted in the past days between Israeli security forces and Palestinian protesters in the Palestinian territories of the Gaza Strip and West Bank. Not only is Israel way ahead of other neighbouring countries in terms of its conventional defence capability, it is a militarised nuclear state - a glaring in-the-face reminder of the double standards over Iran's nuclear aspirations. Alaa Abu Diab posted a video online Dec. 8 saying that in today's world, social media has a major influence on political decision-making and that countries that are trying to change public opinion employ and support people who are social media influencers.
