TENS OF THOUSANDS OF JORDANIANS PROTEST OVER TRUMP’S JERUSALEM MOVE
AMMAN, Jordan– Tens of thousands of Jordanians took to the streets on Friday, to protest over U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision, to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The largest demonstration was held in downtown Amman, with more than 20,000 protesters from various political parties and groups.
People burned the U.S. and Israeli flags, calling for the abolishment of the 1994 Wadi Araba peace deal that Jordan signed with Israel.
“Jerusalem is ours and it is an Arabic city, regardless of what Trump says,” said the demonstrators, carrying pictures of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem.
Ibrahim Halabi, a 58-year old protester said, “We are here to peacefully send a message that, we all reject this decision, which will worsen the situation. Jerusalem is a red-line for Arabs and Muslims, and Trump needs to understand this.”
The demonstrators also called for boycotting U.S. products, and urged Arabs and Muslims to take further steps, to exert pressures on the United States to withdraw the decision.
People also held a demonstration, in front of the U.S. embassy in Amman, to reject the decision.
