USA: Interfaith groups decry Trump plans to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital

A coalition of American Muslim, Arab-American, human rights, and interfaith groups have condemned President Trump's anticipated decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, calling it a «provocation» and «dangerous,» during a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Trump is expected to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday, paving the way for... Еще the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv. Anticipation over the announcement comes after Trump failed to sign a waiver that would block the relocation during Monday's deadline, a move traditionally done by every US President since 1995. The US President phoned the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to notify him that he plans on relocating the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The international community does not recognise Israeli sovereignty over the eastern half of the city, which it captured in the 1967 six-day war.
