More protesters in Indonesia rally against U.S. decision

More protesters in Indonesia rally against U.S. decision

The almost three-hour demonstration in Mount Lebanon's Awkar, north of Beirut, reflected a broad cross section of voices protesting in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognize occupied Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, despite barricades and barbed wire erected by the ISF to keep the demonstrations a kilometer away from the embassy.

'We will not abandon Jerusalem to the mercy of a state that kills children'.

Trump's recognition of Jerusalem has infuriated the Arab world and upset Western allies, who say it is a blow to peace efforts and risks causing further unrest in the Middle East.

Erdogan said in a speech in the central Turkish city of Sivas.

"We strongly condemn the use of disproportionate force by Israel", it added.

Separately, Saeb Erekat, the Palestinian chief negotiator, told Al Jazeera on Friday that Palestinians will not talk to the U.S. until Trump has reversed his decision. Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of a future independent state. The country officially condemned President Trump's decision, but NPR's Sherlock reports that many in Beirut feel that's not enough.

A group of demonstrators set alight an effigy of the USA president, whose decision has up-ended decades of American diplomacy and an worldwide consensus to leave the status of Jerusalem to be resolved in negotiations.

Your conduct following the hit fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player".

"Our demand is that policymakers in the United States review the decision and defy it", said Ezidyar.

An Israeli Army commander has been suspended after being filmed stealing apples from a Palestinian vendor's stand in the West Bank town of Hebron.

Wearing traditional Islamic white robes, the protesters also unfurled Indonesian and Palestinian flags.

The rally in Indonesia's capital drew a crowd of at least 5,000 people, police said.

On Friday, thousands of Palestinians took to the streets in protest and two Palestinians were killed in clashes with Israeli troops on the Gaza border.

Erdogan has used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the pan-Islamic group on Wednesday.

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo said Thursday he "condemned" Trump's decision on Jerusalem, and ordered the USA ambassador in Jakarta to be summoned over the move.
