Jerusalem: Thousands Protest In Turkey Against Trump’s Biased Decision

Thousands of pro-Palestinian supporters trooped after Friday prayers in Istanbul, Turkey in an angry protest at the decision of United States President Donald Trump to identify Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, an AFP correspondent said.

Chanting slogans including “Jerusalem is ours and will remain so!” and “down with America, down with Israel”, the protesters marched after prayers at the Ottoman Fatih mosque in the centre of Istanbul, the correspondent added.

It is not just in Turkey or other Arab countries that people are infuriated with Trump, other European countries are not okay with the United States president’s pronouncement a few days ago.

While the Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim was speaking about the issue, Yildirim said that the U.S. has “pulled the pin on a bomb” that will be “catastrophic” for the region by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Guardian reports.
