Jerusalem Is 'Red Line' for Muslims: Turkey's Erdogan

06 Décembre 2017

Their warnings came amid an acknowledgment by the State Department that Trump's possible moves - recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, moving the US Embassy there from Tel Aviv, or both - could well lead to violence in the region and at American diplomatic facilities worldwide.

This was stated by the Turkish President Recep Erdogan at a meeting.

"Mr. Trump, Jerusalem is a red line for Muslims", Erdogan told a parliamentary group meeting of his ruling Justice and Development (AK) Party.

In 2016, Israel and Turkey reappointed ambassadors after a six-year break due to a lethal Israeli raid on an aid flotilla to Gaza.

According to the report, Erdogan added: "Has the U.S. completed everything and only this is left?"

"If you take this kind of step, we will convene an Islamic cooperation summit in Istanbul", he added.

"The decision is completely against Jerusalem's religious and historical status, global agreements and United Nations decisions", Kalin said on his Twitter account.

Almost all countries who have diplomatic relations with Israel - a group that excludes a large number of Arab and Muslim states - keep their embassies in Tel Aviv.

The House of Representatives has crafted and passed a new tax plan that they are attempting transform into law. The protest was part of a series of demonstrations that have taken place nationwide related to the tax bill.

The Palestinians seek it as a future capital. There is no historic move that is more just or correct than to recognize now Jerusalem, the capital of the Jewish people for the past 3,000 years, as the capital of the state of Israel.

Though his tone was the most strident, Erdogan was not the only world leader to urge Trump to reconsider his plans for Jerusalem.

On Monday, the Trump administration announced that a decision had yet to be reached on whether or not to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"This can become very, very explosive", he said.

"We will discuss this further with Prime Minister Netanyahu next Monday here in Brussels", she added.

"We will not watch the intent to forming a terrorist state beyond our borders with our hands and feet tied by those who want to crucify us in the USA with allegations of sanctions violations".

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel said that the only solution to the issue of Jerusalem would be through "direct negotiations" between the Israelis and Palestinians.
