Hundreds of American Muslims held a rally outside the White House in Washington DC on Friday, in response to US President Donald Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Various coalition groups and Muslims gathered outside the President's residence and held a collective prayer while holding Palestinian flags and signs denouncing the recognition. «Donald Trump does not... Еще own Jerusalem, he does not own Palestine, he doesn't not own one acre, one piece of soil of Palestine» said the Founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Nihad Awad. «We believe that Donald Trump is empowering Christian religious extremism in the United States and that has to be scored,» he added. Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on Wednesday in a live televised address from Washington DC. He also began the process of moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv. Israel has always claimed Jerusalem as its capital while Palestinians demand that annexed East Jerusalem becomes the capital of a future Palestinian state.
