Malaysia rises against Trump’s Jerusalem declaration


SHAFAQNA – MALAYSIA’s Prime Minister has called on Muslims around the world to unite in opposition to Donald Trump’s declaration that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

Najib Razak told Muslims at an annual gathering of his ruling party in Kuala Lumpur they should reject the actions of Donald Trump to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

He said: “I call on all Muslims across the world to let your voices be heard, make it clear that we strongly oppose any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital for all time.”

Since Trump reversed decades of US policy by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel there have been scenes of anger from Muslims across the Middle East.

Listening to Mr Razak’s calling, demonstrators threw coins and other objects at the US embassy in Tel Aviv as they voiced their outrage at the controversial announcement.
