Trump urges 'calm' as anger to Jerusalem decision mounts across Muslim world

Trump urges 'calm' as anger to Jerusalem decision mounts across Muslim world

An outpouring of anger to Trump's hotly contested decision engulfed the Muslim world on Friday and Saturday, as tens of protests were staged across the region by worshippers after prayers.

"Hanukkah is a time for Jewish families around the world to celebrate the miracles of the past and the promises of the future".

Until Trump's decision, the USA - along with most other countries - has maintained its embassy in Tel Aviv, saying the status of Jerusalem should be resolved between the sides in negotiations.

The reason behind Donald John Trump's recent move that left a lot of people inside and outside the United States bewildered is now becoming clear. Beside them was also his daughter Ivanka, his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, and his grandchildren, whom he noted, are Jewish.

"I am also proud that my lovely grandchildren - Arabella, Joseph and Theodore - have joined us tonight right here as we celebrate with all of you the sacred traditions that they observe each year at home", Trump said.

Vice President Mike Pence, his wife Karen and Rabbi Meir Soloveichik were also in the room.

No Jewish Democrats or critics of Mr Trump's Israel policy attended. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer was present, however, who is affiliated with the Democratic Party.

Hanukkah is a Jewish festival commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

The president hosted Dutch holocaust survivor Louise Lawrence-Israƫls, who spent her first years in Amsterdam hiding from the Nazis. "There's nothing to it", White House spokesman Raj Shah.

Stephanie Grisham, Mrs. Trump's spokeswoman, whose office oversees White House party planning said the limited guest list was due to the president's "more personal than political approach".
