Trump’s decision is akin to the Balfour declaration, as Trump “gave what he does not own to he who does not deserve,” as Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayeb stated.

On Wednesday night, Trump officially recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during a televised speech from the White House. Trump’s decision was met by a barrage of criticism and condemnations from many Arab and world leaders, while protests took places in the Gaza Strip, West Bank and different parts of the Arab world.

The Islamic Jihad Movement, Hamas and Fatah in Palestine called for staging protests against Trump’s decision and called for a third “Intifada” (uprising) to take place on Friday, naming it a “day of rage”.
