Palestinian Stabs Israeli Amid Tensions Over Jerusalem

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has called Trump's decision "historic", said Israel has maintained its capital in the city for 70 years and the Jewish connection to Jerusalem goes back 3,000 years.

In Beirut, scores of Lebanese and Palestinian demonstrators clashed with security forces outside the heavily guarded U.S. Embassy over the recognition, while Arab foreign ministers meeting in Cairo demanded that the United States rescind Trump's decision, calling it a "grave" development.

Netanyahu said Trump's move, condemned by the Palestinians, Muslim countries and by European governments, should be emulated by them.

"I hear (from Europe) voices of condemnation over President Trump's historic announcement, but I have not heard any condemnation for the rocket firing against Israel that has come (after the announcement) and the very bad incitement against us", Netanyahu said.

However, it is also a disputed territory, contested by both Israel and Palestine, which sees it as a capital of its future state.

A Palestinian stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli security guard in Jerusalem on Sunday in what police described as a "terrorist" attack amid unrest over the White House's Jerusalem declaration.

In the capital, protesters carried banners reading "U.S. Embassy, Get Out from Al Quds", "Free Jerusalem and Palestinians" and "We are with the Palestinians".

He said: Palestine is an innocent victim.

Unaï Emery pouvait alors sortir un Di Maria décisif (1 but et 1 passe décisive, sa 4e de la saison) pour faire entrer Draxler. Son second, en effet, Kai Havertz, qui évolue pour sa part au Bayer Leverkusen, en est à 5 buts et 9 passes décisives.

The statement was issued after an emergency meeting of league foreign ministers in Cairo and went on to say that Trump's decision also strips the USA of its role as a "sponsor and broker" in the Mideast peace process.

In Indonesia, home to the world's largest Muslim population, thousands of protesters mounted a demonstration outside the U.S. Embassy in the capital, Jakarta.

Pre-dawn Israeli air strikes on Saturday killed two Palestinian gunmen after militants fired rockets from the enclave into Israel on Friday.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended.

"We will not abandon Jerusalem to the mercy of a state that kills children". "One of the manifestations of this refusal is the mere refusal to sit down with Israel".

In a snub over Trump's decision, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will not meet U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, Maliki added.

Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who heads the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party, called for a boycott of Arab businesses in an area where residents took part in violent protests of the US recognition.

He said that many Arab nations were increasingly aligned with Israel to tackle Iran's regional threat.
