MAB condemns US President’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital

American President Donald Trump today announced his intention to move the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and recognise the city as its capital.
This proposed move shows a flagrant disregard for international law, Palestinian rights and international opinion, serving only to inflame tensions and unrest across the Middle East.
The Muslim Association of Britain calls upon the UK Government to condemn President Trump’s decision and to reaffirm its position in not recognising any changes to the internationally agreed upon resolutions. Omer El-Hamdoon, President of MAB said:
“Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the moving of the Israeli embassy shows the President’s utter disregard for international law. This move will only add to further unrest in the region, and will be decisive in ensuring further conflict.”
