Tens of thousands protest in Indonesia against US Jerusalem move

19 Décembre 2017

It came as a surprise to absolutely nobody that the USA on Monday vetoed a United Nations Security Council draft resolution condemning its recent recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump's declaration fueled widespread anger and protests within Palestine and across the world, with the latest and largest demonstration taking place on Monday in the Indonesian capital Jakarta, where some 80,000 people rallied outside the USA embassy in the city.

The Palestinian delegation to the United Nations, along with Egypt, the draft resolution's sponsor, have worked at taking into consideration the requests of member states, Mansour said.

The U.S.is likely to veto the draft resolution, but the Palestinians say they have options to deal with that.

Abbas said in public comments to senior Palestinian officials Monday that "a insane person wouldn't accept" such a role for Washington after Trump's announcement two weeks ago.

The statement added that the veto had left the U.N. Security Council "in a state of failure" and said Turkey would continue to stand by the "Palestinian state and its people".

It came after he supported a resolution, vetoed by the USA, that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his decision declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

The United States on Monday vetoed a resolution supported by the 14 other U.N. Security Council members that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a vote that showed the depth of global opposition to the USA move.

Russian Federation says it's ready to become "an honest mediator" between the Israelis and Palestinians, a role the United States has played for years. But the Palestinians insist East Jerusalem should be the capital of their future independent state. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas has refused to meet with him because of the decision, a move the White House called "unfortunate". And it would have called for intensified and accelerated worldwide and regional efforts to achieve Middle East peace. In a step, Trump seemed to basically hand the city to Israel.

The government of Israel praised the administration for vetoing the United Nations measure, just as it had celebrated Trump's initial announcement about recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"On Hanukkah, you spoke like a Maccabi", he said.

Abu Rudeina said the support for the resolution, which included USA allies France, Italy and Japan, "showed the (American) isolation". You dispel the darkness.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley called the resolution "an insult" that won't be forgotten, saying the United Nations forced the U.S.to cast a veto simply because of its right to decide where to put its embassy.

"This is my solidarity as a Muslim to my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine. the Al Aqsa mosque, a historical mosque for Muslims, is there [in Jerusalem]", said Hermawati, from the nearby city of Bogor, who like many Indonesians goes by one name, reported the Agence France-Presse.

The United States has vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have required President Donald Trump to rescind his declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "Truth defeated lies", Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said.
