Israel: 'United States is the snake itself' — protesters decry Jerusalem declaration at US Embassy

Scores of anti-US President Donald Trump protesters rallied outside the US Embassy in Tel-Aviv on Tuesday, as unrest over the Jerusalem declaration continues in Israel. Members of the Unicameral National Legislature of Israel (Knesset) were in attendance at the rally, reiterating their stance over the disagreement with Trump's recognition. Protesters held signs with Anti-Trump slogans, chanting... Еще against the US administration throughout the rally. One Knesset member, Aida Touma Suleiman, said «we understand very clearly that the US administration has declared finally that they are not a neutral in any way to what is happening in this country and they are taking the side of the endless occupation that is happening here.» While another member, Ahmad Tibi, described the decision as the «ultimate slap in the face.» Last week US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in a live televised address from Washington D.C. The decision sparked immediate outrage and fury from the Arab world. The status of the Holy City is seen as a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
