Weekly protest against Trump's Jerusalem move continues


(MENAFN- Jordan Times) AMMAN — Scores of people marched in downtown Amman on Friday in protest against US President Donald Trump's decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognise it as the capital of Israel.

Participants attended Friday sermon at Al Husseini Mosque and performed noon prayer ahead of the demonstration.

Waving the flags of Jordan and Palestine and holding banners in solidarity with Jerusalem, the protesters chanted anti-US slogans.

Murad Adailah, of the Islamic Movement, said that the continued protests highlight Jordanians' constant support to Palestine.

'Jerusalem is simply the capital of Palestine. We do not accept the pressures on Jordan to make it abandon its political decision to oppose this flagarant move,' he said as he marched with protesters.

Adailah noted that they wanted to remind the world that Jerusalem is 'not for sale' and no honourable Arab can accept 'trading of the holy city on political table'.

Hamzah Dabbas, another protester, said 'Arabs will never abandon Jerusalem and this is the first and last capital of all Muslims and Palestinians'.
