"Palestinians, Muslims worldwide hold 'Day of Rage' over Jerusalem
JERUSALEM: Thousands of Palestinians protested in a "day of rage" on Friday in the occupied West Bank, Gaza and in East Jerusalem against U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of the ancient city as Israel's capital.
Across the Arab and Muslim worlds, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets on Friday, the Muslim holy day, expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and outrage at the U.S. move.
As Friday prayers ended at the Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, worshippers made their way towards the walled Old City gates, chanting "Jerusalem is ours, Jerusalem is our capital," and "We don't need empty words, we need stones and Kalashnikovs". Some scuffles broke out between protesters and police.
Trump's decision to reverse decades of U.S. policy and recognise Jerusalem has been met by days of protests, although violence so far has largely been contained.
By midday Friday there had been no reports of deaths in two days of demonstrations in the Palestinian territories. Thirty-one Palestinians were wounded on Thursday.
Clashes began in some spots of the West Bank after Friday prayers, though the unrest appeared less intense than the previous day. In Hebron and Bethlehem dozens of Palestinians threw stones at Israeli soldiers who fired back with tear gas."
I think Trump is right! Nothing serious will happen despite the many so-called wise n powerful world leaders, eminent analysts, etc. predicting dire consequence as the Middle Eastern n Palenstinians will defend it with their lives!
