Jerusalem as Israel’s capital?

Jerusalem as Israel’s capital?

Malaysian leader Najib Razak headed a protest involving thousands of Muslims against Trump’s decision in the country’s capital, Putrajaya, on Friday.

Malaysia will do all it can to save Jerusalem and will not be cowed by the US or quietened by his close ties with US President Donald Trump; the prime minister told demonstrators.

Malaysia was one of the more than 120 countries who voted in favour of a UN General Assembly resolution calling for the United States to drop its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Thursday.

UN General Assembly rejects Trump’s Jerusalem move. A resounding majority of United Nations member states has defied unprecedented threats by the US to approve a draft resolution rejecting President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The non-binding measure passed at a UN General Assembly emergency meeting on Thursday with 128 votes in favour and nine against, while 35 countries abstained.
