Protests over Trump’s Jerusalem declaration continue across the world

JERUSALEM Dec 11: New protests flared in the Middle East and elsewhere Sunday over US President Donald Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital — a move that has drawn global condemnation and sparked days of unrest in the Palestinian territories.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Palestinians needed to come to terms with Jerusalem’s long Jewish history.

“It’s always been our capital,” he said at a press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris.

“I think the sooner the Palestinians come to grips with this reality, the sooner we’ll move towards peace.”
