Al Quds Protests from Around the US and the World

Detroit (GPA) – Last week following a decision by the Trump regime to move the US embassy in Israel to Al Quds, protests broke out around the world.

Last week, the Muslim world (and the world as a whole) was shocked when US President Donald Trump declared the city known as “Jerusalem” as the capital of the Zionist occupation of Palestine.

This move was condemned by the United States’ allies and adversaries alike. While many US commentators lamented at the fact that the “US would no longer be seen as a neutral party in peace talks,” everyone who lives in reality just saw the Trump decision as the latest logical step in the ongoing colonization of Palestine.
