Jerusalem: Opposition to mooted Trump Israel announcement grows

recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital
Opposition is growing in the Arab and wider Muslim world as Donald Trump is expected to announce US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Reports say the president will make the statement this week but will further delay acting on a campaign pledge to move the US embassy to the city.

The head of the Arab League, Turkey, Jordan and the Palestinian leader have warned of consequences of the move.

The city's fate is one of the thorniest issues between Israel and the Arabs.

The Israeli government has not publicly commented on the anticipated announcement by Mr Trump.
