Trump's Jerusalem decision fuels conflict and creates discord: Muslim council

Trump's Jerusalem decision fuels conflict and creates discord: Muslim council

"This is a matter of one power taking over the city that belongs to everyone who lives in it and dominating it and calling it their capital", Tilley said.

The United States must reconsider its decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"You touch Jerusalem, things explode", he said, explaining that for people on the ground, there are three primary concerns over the move, the first of which is "how many people are going to die?"

AP said the decision was devoid of justice, violated global laws and infringed on the rights of Palestinians.

Wisma Putra in a statement yesterday said such a decision would put to an end all efforts made towards a resolution of Palestinian question.

The statement emphasized that the decision would not change the Palestinian people's rights over Jerusalem and other occupied territories, and imposing a new status on Jerusalem was not possible. "Might can not be right", Wisma Putra added.

Because of Jerusalem's significance to Armenians, leading figures in the Armenian religious community were quick to voice condemnation of the the recent declaration by United States President Donald Trump regarding the status of Jerusalem.

The decision, AP said, will further negatively impact on relations between Israel and Palestine and the global community's attempts to bring a resolution to the crisis. For many years, visiting American diplomats met their Israeli counterparts in Jerusalem...

Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri and Ministry of Foreign Affairs also denounced Trump's move on Jerusalem. Today, we acknowledge that Jerusalem is the Israeli capital.

"We are certain that such steps will yield increased hatred, conflict, violence and suffering in Jerusalem and the Holy Land", the leaders said in a letter to Trump, "moving us farther from the goal of unity and deeper toward destructive division".

"Any sudden changes would cause irreparable harm", they said, and voiced their confidence that with adequate support, both Israelis and Palestinians "can work towards negotiating a sustainable and just peace" that is beneficial for all sides.

The leaders sent a letter prior toTrump's move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital which reversed decades of USA policy on Wednesday.

"Egypt condemns the U.S.' decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move its ambassador to Jerusalem".
