Turkey criticised what it said was a feeble Arab reaction to the U.S. decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital, saying on the eve of Wednesday's Muslim summit in Istanbul that some Arab countries were scared of angering Washington.U.S. President Donald Trump's announcement last week recognising the city as Israel's capital angered many Muslim countries, but few governments have matched Turkey's warning that it would plunge the world "into a fire with no end".The mainly Shi'ite country is also competing for power and influence in the Middle East with predominantly Sunni Muslim Saudi Arabia, a close U.S. ally.Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami said Trump's decision would strengthen Israel, and accused some Muslim states of cooperating covertly with the Israeli government.
