via Trump plan to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital triggers warnings – AOL News

U.S. allies and foes alike expressed dismay Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s expected move to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital with some warning it could potentially trigger violence.

The decision will “provoke Muslims and Christians alike,” Jordan’s King Abdullah predicted, while Pope Francis urged the White House to reconsider.

Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be an act of “madness” that would “plunge the region and the world into a fire with no end in sight,” Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said.
