Tens of thousands of people took to the streets of Muslim and Arab countries across the world Friday to protest U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in a show of solidarity with the Palestinians. Demonstrators at the protests, which followed the weekly prayers in mosques, vented their anger at the unilateral decision that has sparked widespread international criticism. Hundreds of demonstrators, circled by anti-riot police, also gathered outside Al-Azhar Mosque in the capital of Egypt, which in 1979 became the first Arab country to sign a peace treaty with the Jewish state.In Asia, thousands of protesters demonstrated outside the U.S. Embassy in Malaysia, condemning Trump's decision as a "slap in the face" for Muslims worldwide.They carried banners that read: "Hands off Jerusalem" and "Down USA President Trump". In neighboring Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim-majority country, several hundred people demonstrated outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, unfurling a large Palestinian flag.
