Thousands Protest Al-Quds Decision in D.C.

Dec 17, 2017

Thousands of people have held rallies in Washington, protesting at US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize al-Quds as the Zionist entity’s capital.

The protesters gathered near the White House on Saturday, waving Palestinian flags and carrying banners denouncing the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
The banners read, “Stop the occupation in Palestine now”, “Jerusalem belongs to Palestinians” and “We reject Trump’s decision.”
In a speech to protesters, Osama Abu Irshaid, the director of American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), said, “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine whether Trump or his buddy, the war criminal, Benjamin Netanyahu like it or not.”
“If Mr. President wants to give property to the state of Israel, he should give one of his properties if he really owns them,” Abu Irshaid said. “But we don’t really know how much he owns because he never declared his taxes.”
Among the protesters, there were many of Jewish believers from New York and Washington chapters of Jews United Against Zionism.
Members from other Muslim civil rights and advocacy organizations such as Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), Muslim American Society (MAS), the US Council of Muslim Organizations, Turkish American National Steering Committee (TASC) also participated in the event.
