Middle East protests erupt after Trump recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital

Abbas snubs US Vice President Pence over Jerusalem move

Abbas snubs US Vice President Pence over Jerusalem move

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry said Trump's policy change put the "region on the verge of explosion".

Protesters carried Palestinian flags and banners saying "We are with the Palestinians" and "Pray for Palestine".

France said on Friday the United States had sidelined itself in the Middle East by recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Relations between Israel and Turkey took a bitter turn Sunday as their leaders traded accusations of involvement in terrorism, days after the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Israeli leader made the comments late Saturday as he left for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris and a rare meeting with European Union foreign ministers in Brussels. The Arab League, in a statement issued after an emergency session in Cairo, called Trump's announcement a "dangerous violation of worldwide law" which had no legal impact and was void.

Then gravity began to squash down matter into the first stars and galaxies, then creating light in the form of photons. That means that the black hole quasar was formed exactly during that reionization phase after the Big Bang event.

Israel seized Jerusalem's Arab-majority eastern sector in the 1967 Six-Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognized by the global community.

"During the phone talks, the two leaders discussed methods of supporting the Palestinian rights, topped by the right to establish their independent state with East Jerusalem as its capital", Rady said. "This is the result of the intervention of Israeli forces against Palestinians protesting in the occupied territories following the [U.S.] announcement on Jerusalem, which contradicts worldwide law and all related United Nations decisions", the statement said. About 60 Palestinian youths threw stones at Israeli soldiers across the Gaza-Israel border and the health ministry said at least 10 were wounded by Israeli fire.

Hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists on Saturday staged a protest in Paris against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's planned visit to France on Sunday.

Trump's move has sparked protests in Muslim and Arab countries for four days.

Erdogan has called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul on Wednesday to discuss the Jerusalem issue.
