‘Bomb Ready to Blow’: Muslim, European Leaders Slam Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem

  • ‘Bomb Ready to Blow’: Muslim, European Leaders Slam Trump’s Recognition of Jerusalem
    by https://www.rt.com/
    US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel was met with global condemnation, with some Muslim nations calling for armed resistance and the European Union urging compliance with UN resolutions.

    Shortly after Trump’s announcement Wednesday, Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, said the US could no longer serve as mediator of Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. He dismissed the American move, saying Jerusalem is the “eternal capital of the State of Palestine.”

    Palestinian group Hamas called for a new uprising against Israel in response to the American decision. Hezbollah leader, Hassan Nasrallah, backed Hamas’ calls for a new “intifada” against Israel. Nasrallah said by this announcement, “Trump told Israel, that his Jerusalem is for you and it is under your sovereignty.” He also warned that Muslim people and their sacred sites in the city, including the al-Aqsa Mosque, were now in “extreme danger” as a result of Trump’s announcement.

American Dominance ‘Becoming History,’ Berlin Can No Longer Simply React to US Policy – German FM

  • American Dominance ‘Becoming History,’ Berlin Can No Longer Simply React to US Policy – German FM
    by https://www.rt.com/
    Germany’s foreign minister says the world order is changing and the role of the US as a dominant world leader is fading under the Trump administration. He said Berlin needs to defend its interests more actively, even if it means standing up to Washington.

    Speaking at a foreign policy forum in Berlin on Tuesday, Sigmar Gabriel said “the global dominance of the United States is slowly becoming history.” He noted that the “withdrawal of the United States under Donald Trump from its reliable role as a guarantor of western-led multilateralism accelerates a change of the world order with immediate consequences for German and European interests.”

    “Germany can no longer simply react to US policy but must establish its own position… even after Trump leaves the White House, relations with the US will never be the same,”
     Gabriel is cited as saying.


    Gabriel accused the US of “no longer see(ing) the world as a global community, but as a fighting arena where everyone has to seek their own advantage,” Deutsche Welle reported. However, he noted that Europe has to step up to the plate and more strictly define its interests in order to be a major global player.

    “As the US has withdrawn from the international stage, nobody has turned to the European Union,”
     Gabriel said. He claimed the bloc no longer stands for a specific set of values, and accused its members of treating the EU “as if they have a second one in their hip pocket.”

    “We have to describe our own positions and, if necessary, draw red lines”
     which would be “based on our own interests,” he said, according to the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

    The IDF is on high alert after Hamas called for a “day of rage” ahead of the White House’s expected announcement to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The planned demonstrations come as nations around the world condemn Trump’s decision.

    Israel is bracing for demonstrations in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and East Jerusalem ahead of US President Donald Trump’s expected plan to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and to recognize Jerusalem as the Jewish state’s capital.

    The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) are preparing for violence after Hamas called for a “day of rage”in response to Trump’s controversial decision. The main demonstration is planned for Thursday afternoon at al-Manara Square in Ramallah. People from across the West Bank are expected to participate.

    On Wednesday, a large demonstration is scheduled to take place in Jenin. Israeli police and military are also preparing for demonstrations near the American embassy in Tel Aviv. Thousands of Israeli law enforcers are expected to be on duty in Jerusalem on Friday.

    Hamas political leader Ismail Haniyeh vowed that Palestinians would use all available options to “protect our land and our holy sites,” according to media reports.

    The Palestinian Islamist political organization and militant group urged “the youth and the Palestinian resistance in the West Bank” to “respond with all means available to the US decision that harms our Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a red line and the resistance will not allow any desecration of it.”

    Foreign governments are already anticipating violence. The German Foreign Ministry updated its travel advice for Israel and the Palestinian territories on Wednesday, warning that “from December 6, 2017, there may be demonstrations in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Violent clashes cannot be ruled out.” The US State Department also issued a travel warning, urging government employees and their families not to visit Jerusalem’s Old City or the West Bank.
