Protests Erupt Worldwide over Trump Decision on Jerusalem

HeadlineDec 11, 2017

Elsewhere, protests against the Trump administration’s decision on Jerusalem raged in cities around the world over the weekend. In Lebanon, security forces fired tear gas at protesters outside the U.S. Embassy north of Beirut. There were other large protests in Indonesia, Egypt, Jordan, Somalia and Morocco, as well as U.S. cities including New York and San Francisco. In France, hundreds protested in central Paris as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was welcomed by French President Emmanuel Macron. Macron called President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem a “threat to peace” and urged Netanyahu to freeze construction of illegal Jewish-only settlements.
