Tillerson, others say Jerusalem step changes 'nothing'

  Tillerson, others say Jerusalem step changes 'nothing' State Department officials on Thursday defended President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying it reflects the will of the American people and arguing that in practice it changes "nothing."Their pushback came as major US allies, geopolitical rivals, religious leaders and many analysts warned about the potential for Trump's decision to further destabilize the Middle East and undermine the idea of Washington as a neutral arbiter of peace talks.

The leader of the Palestinian Islamist group Hamas called Thursday for a new "intifada" or uprising against Israel after President Trump said the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and begin moving its embassy to the city.

In a news conference in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, Ismail Haniya said Washington's decision amounted to a "war declaration against Palestinians" that "killed" the Israel-Palestinian peace process.

It came after the Palestinian "national and Islamic forces" announced three days of rage starting Wednesday and ending Friday.

"We call on all our people in Israel and around the world to gather in city centers and Israeli embassies and consulates, with the aim of bringing about general popular anger," the joint statement said, according to the Jerusalem Post.

Iran: Trump's Jerusalem move will hasten Israel's destruction

Leaders of Iran, where opposition to Israel and support for the Palestinian cause has been central to foreign policy since the 1979 Islamic revolution, have denounced last week's announcement by the U.S. president, including a plan to move the U.S. embassy to the city.The Palestinians want East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

The leader of Hamas has called for a new Palestinian intifada after Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The second, which began in 2000 and ended in 2005, killed around 1,000 Israelis and 3,000 Palestinians. Trump ' s declaration has also been greeted with protests across

Staunch U.S. allies France and the United Kingdom have condemned Trump's decision and Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally in the Middle East, called it "irresponsible."

Haniya said the uprising should start Friday, the Muslim holy day. "We want the uprising to last and continue to let Trump and the occupation regret this decision."

Israel, the U.S. and the European Union consider Hamas either wholly or in part to be a terrorist organization. The group killed hundreds of Israelis during the Second Intifada, an armed uprising against Israel's occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip in the early 2000s.

Fatah calls for protests against US VP Jerusalem visit

  Fatah calls for protests against US VP Jerusalem visit The Fatah faction of Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Saturday called for demonstrations next week when US Vice President Mike Pence visits Jerusalem, after Washington's policy shift on the holy city. Breaking with decades with US policy, President Donald Trump announced on December 6 his decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and that he would move the US embassy to the city.The move has stirred global condemnation and sparked angry protests across Arab and Muslim countries, as well as deadly clashes in the occupied territories between Palestinians and Israeli forces.

Abbas was expected to travel to Jordan on Thursday to meet with King Abdullah II. The monarch, who enjoys good relations with the U.S., is seen as Abbas’ closest Arab ally, and the two leaders might try to coordinate a response to Trump’s policy change.

On Wednesday, Abbas said in an address that Washington's move was a "reward to Israel" that encourages Israel's "continued occupation" of Palestinian areas.

It remains unclear how destructive any new intifada from Hamas might be. The group's ability to carry out attacks is now more limited after Israel imposed a blockade on the Gaza Strip. Many of Hamas’ supporters in the West Bank also have been arrested.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Trump had "bound himself forever" to the history of Jerusalem by recognizing the city as Israel’s capital. He also claimed that other nations would follow suit and make a similar recognition.

Meanwhile, Israel's military said it would deploy additional troops to the West Bank ahead of Friday, when mass Palestinian protests are expected in response to Trump’s move. Palestinians went on strike across the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip on Thursday and protests are expected on Friday after midday prayers.

Clashes broke out amid a fresh wave of violence across the West Bank and along Gaza's border on Friday.Protests in response to Trump's announcement, which departed from decades of U.S. policy that the fate of Jerusalem should be decided through negotiations, have yet to relent across various Arab and Muslim countries in the region.
