WEB Notes: You can read more about this topic and what we had to say here. Meanwhile, Hamas calls for a ‘new intifada in the face of Israel’ while Abbas called Jerusalem the ‘eternal capital of the state of Palestine’. Take note, nothing moves for at least 3-4 years which means Trump if not re-elected would not be in power during that time and the entire decision could be reversed.

Arabs and Muslims across the Middle East on Wednesday condemned the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as an incendiary move in a volatile region and Palestinians said Washington was abandoning its leading role as a peace mediator.

Major U.S. allies came out against Trump’s reversal of decades of U.S. and broad international policy on Jerusalem.
