organisations condemned Trump, adding that the declaration could cause monumental crisis not only in the controversial area but around the globe.
Also speaking at the occasion, the founder of Fathi-ul-Qareeb,  Shaykh Sulaiman Adangba noted that Trump’s declaration came at a time when the whole of the Middle East was embroiled in crisis which has resulted to several loss of lives, adding that Trump’s announcement could further cause greater chaos if not reversed. The cleric also called on the United Nations to take punitive measures against Trump’s administration.
The US vetoed Egyptian-drafted UN Security Council resolution rejecting Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  “The vetoing by the United States clearly shows the injustice in the U.N justice system. Is democracy no more relevant? A single nation’s vote renders ineffective that of 14 Security Council and 193 General Assembly members,” said Zhikirullah Shaafi.
