U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement on Wednesday sparked protests in a number of countries, with clashes breaking out with security forces in Palestinian territories.

He went on to say that the United States gave the message to the world that it believes to run the world by dint of force.

He said that the U.S. has undermined the resolutions of the United Nations on various issues involving Muslims and the world body itself failed to ensure implementation of its resolution on Kashmir and Palestine disputes. "The South African government, now more than ever, has a unique role to play in facilitating this constructive dialogue to restart the peace process".

So, can we question the possibility that Israel wants to hegemonize the Islamic world by arguing the superiority of Jews in all corners of the Muslim world?

Speaking to the media, Shah deplored the US President's decision, saying his policies could trigger unrest in the Muslim world.

"The framework drawn by the archaeological study was something of an embarrassment to some that the French-Saudi expedition was done so quietly", the report continued, in an obvious move to discredit Muslim sensitivities and even the accuracy of Islamic history.

Mostly sunny and cool temperatures for Friday
Clouds will build quickly Tuesday and temps climb into the low 50s late in the day from a passing warm front. Skies then clear out for Sunday afternoon with a warmer than average afternoon to close out the weekend.

In Gaza, an Islamist militant group called the Al-Tawheed Brigades took responsibility for rockets fired at Israel on Thursday in what it declared was its "first response" to the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "It is the duty of Muslim Ummah to help the oppressed Palestinian people but so far nothing has been done and the poor Palestinians continue to face oppression and Israel barbarism", she said.

This decision will likely affirm the evangelicals who believe that Trump was hand-picked by God to regain control of the Temple mount, thus hastening the return of Jesus Christ: an event they have been preparing for for their entire lives. "The US has become a party by siding with Israel", said the official.

Traditional US allies like Saudi Arabia are among a growing chorus condemning President Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Regional branches of al-Qaida also condemned the United States.

Leaders and activists of Jamaatud Dawa, Milli Muslim League, DPC and Al-Muhammadia Students Pakistan took part in the rally and torched USA and Israel flags.

In his speech, DPC leader Ghazi Inamullah said Israel has occupied Baitul Muqaddas (Jerusalem) and it is the obligation of Muslims to get it released from Israel's occupation. Stop using pulpits to spread venom against each other.
