Trump's al-Quds move sign of frustration, Iran says

Rouhani

The extraordinary Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Summit on al-Quds was held in Turkey on December 13, with President Rouhani and leaders of 56 counties in attendance.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on all Muslim countries to work together to protect the rights of Palestinians against the USA decision on Jerusalem.

The U.S. move has sparked protests by Muslims around the world in support of the Palestinians, who want East Jerusalem to be the capital of their future state.

Rouhani further emphasized that the Muslim world is resisting against the "wrong" United States decision on Jerusalem al-Quds and warned of new tensions and the dire consequences that Trump's decision would have for the Middle East.

"If Muslims maintain their unity and their dignity, this could be a great victory for Muslims and for the region", Rouhani told reporters in Tehran before boarding his plane to Turkey.

Hannibal Buress' Arrest Caught on Video
Buress' fans on Twitter had many strong reactions to the comedian's arrest, including tweets declaring, "Free Hannibal Buress ". Buress is known for his stand-up comedy and guest spots on movies and shows, including "Spiderman: Homecoming" and "Baywatch".

Rouhani described the declaration a "plot against Palestine and the Muslim world" that can be thwarted with a united reaction from Muslims, saying they face a crucial test.

"The entire Muslim world stands in solidarity with Palestinians and rejects Trump's gifting of what he does not own to those who have no right to it", Zarif added.

Meanwhile, secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Yousef bin Ahmad Al-Othaimeen, told the extraordinary summit of the 57-member states that the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is "an exceptional challenge" facing Muslim nations.

The controversial remarks drew widespread global opposition and sparked days of protest across the Middle East and elsewhere.

The US declaration inflamed the conflict and provoked what has been described as the third intifada (uprising), leading to ongoing confrontations between Israeli forces and protesters in Beit-ul-Moqaddas, West Bank and Gaza, which have left a few people dead and hundreds injured.
