Hezbollah slams Trump s decision on Jerusalem

Friday - December 8, 2017 7:50 am , Category : WORLD

Beirut Dec 8 (IANS) Hezbollah s Secretary General Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah slammed Thursday US President Donald Trump s declaration on Jerusalem as a "new Balfour Declaration" urging Arab states to sever "public and secret" ties with Israel.



In a televised address Nasrallah warned that "Trump s decision on Jerusalem is a new Balfour Declaration and we will soon hear Arab voices trying to downplay its importance " Xinhua reported.

Calling for protesting and condemning Trump s decision at all levels and on social networking websites Nasrallah called on Arab and Islamic states to "summon US ambassadors to hand them official and public protest letters against Trump s decision."

He also called for severing "public and secret" Arab ties with Israel and halting "the normalization steps that several Arab countries have started."

"The Israelis were maybe building a limited number of settlements but from now on we will witness an unrestricted construction process " he lamented.

He warned that the holy sites in Jerusalem are "under an extreme danger."

"Al-Aqsa Mosque is now in danger. Do not be surprised if one day we wake up to find Al-Aqsa Mosque demolished " Nasrallah cautioned.

He also called for "a new Palestinian uprising " urging Arab and Muslim states to back such a move.

Trump announced on Wednesday the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel s capital and his intention of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
