Haley: Trump isn't deciding who controls East Jerusalem

Patriarch Theophilos III, the Greek Orthodox patriarchate, widely seen as the most senior Christian figure in Jerusalem, and a dozen other church leaders in the Holy Land, sent a letter to Trump on Wednesday warning of "irreparable harm". Education Minister Naftali Bennett, head of the nationalist Jewish Home party, praised what he called Trump's "bold and yet natural" move.

"Many presidents have said they want to do something and they didn't do it", Trump said in the hours leading up to his historic address. The Arab League also opposed the move, with Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit saying it was a "dangerous measure that would have repercussions".

The announcement shattered decades of US foreign policy and triggered an angry response from Palestinians, who took to the streets burning flags and tires and chanting anti-American slogans.

"Down with America.America is the mother of terror", they chanted.

Turkey's Foreign Minister said Wednesday morning that "the whole world is against" President Donald Trump's decision to move the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to the disputed city of Jerusalem.

The issue could be "an unsettling factor to the global order", said Makoto Sengoku, market analyst at Tokai Tokyo Research Centre.

The Palestinian Islamist group Hamas, which had dominated Gaza since soon after Israel ended a 38-year occupation of it in 2005, said Trump had committed a "flagrant aggression against the Palestinian people".

But Trump appears set on fulfilling his campaign promise, regardless of the regional consequences.

"Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel and the location of the US Embassy should reflect this fact", Cardin said.
