Macron Revealed what Trump was Aiming for with his Decision about Jerusalem

It is one of the holiest cities for Christians because it is where they believe Angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary she would give birth to Jesus.

"The recognition of your dog "Trump" (sic) Jerusalem as the capital of Israel will make us recognize explosives as the capital of your country".

The mayor of the Israeli town of Nazareth said President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE has taken the "joy" out of Christmas with his decision earlier this month to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Trump has also ordered the USA embassy moved from Tel Aviv, though that process is likely to take years.

Jerusalem is sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians. The move has the potential to plunge the wider Middle East into chaos and crater the already troubled peace efforts to settle the 70-year-old Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

The city council announced Thursday that Mayor Ali Salam, a Muslim, had ordered the axing of all planned artistic events, including a festival and large Christmas market.


"Our identity and faith can not be bargained The decision has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will cancel the festivities this year", Salam reportedly said.

"We have chose to cancel the traditional Christmas singing and dancing because we are in a time of dispute, because of what Trump has said about Jerusalem", city spokesman Salem Sharara said, Reuters reported.

Reuters pointed out that the Palestinian town of Bethlehem, where Jesus was born, also briefly switched off its Christmas lights last week in protest.

Trump has repeatedly promised that the USA would say "Merry Christmas" again, despite the fact that Americans and American leaders have never stopped using the ubiquitous phrase.

However, it is not confirmed whether the two cities are also considering cutting down on their festivities during a time when tourism is at its peak.
