    Dozens injured in West Bank protests: report

    Dozens of people were injured on Thursday in the Palestinian-dominated West Bank in protests after President Trump announced the U.S. would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, CNN reported.

    Palestinian protesters used slingshots and threw rocks during the demonstrations, according to the network, and Israeli forces responded with tear gas and rubber bullets.

    The unrest comes one day after Trump announced the U.S. would not only recognize Jerusalem as the Israeli capital but said the U.S. Embassy would be relocated from Tel Aviv to the holy city. The State Department on Tuesday warned U.S. citizens to avoid Jerusalem’s Old City and the West Bank over fears of protests and violent reaction to the president's announcement.

    Palestinians have claimed part of Jerusalem as their capital. The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza, has called for an uprising or an "intifada" to take effect on Friday.

    “The American decision is an aggression on our people and a war on our sanctuaries,” Ismail Haniyeh, a Hamas leader, said on Thursday.

    “We want the uprising to last and continue to let Trump and the occupation regret this decision,” he continued.
    Palestinians closed schools and shops in preparation, while the Israeli military announced it would deploy several battalions to the West Bank, according to The Associated Press.

    At least Iran and Hezbollah are delighted with this move of Trump. They can say that Saudis, Egyptians cannot be trusted and that they are the only ones defending Palestinians against Israelis. Is it really Logical to make things more difficult to Arab allies of the USA in the Near East for no political benefit for the US ?
    Thanks from labrea

    You expect logic from Trump and his right wing Brownshirts?

    I admit, I have for about 2 decades, gone what a fucking waste. For about 15 years, are you fucking kidding me when I realized just HOW SMALL the land in dispute was, not to mention the entire country. (No I didn't realize that until about then).

    I liked the idea of a 2 state solution with JERUSALEM like a ''Vatican City" kind of a setup. No political entity jockeying for control and power, any/all welcome.

    Then about 5 years ago, I was driving down the road listening to NPR. A guest speaker of some area of expertise just kinda threw out this little fact. That the GENETICS of Israeli and Palestinian native borns was IDENTICAL. No difference. (Keeping in mind that Americans, Europeans and others who could fly in, many 'settling' there for about 50 years has deviated the the genetic code a little but, here it is in its simplest form...

    So, as far as male lineage goes, the genetic story is very clear. Palestinians and Jews are virtually indistinguishable.

    That's when I said fuck it, let them figure it out themselves.

    Again genetic code tribe to tribe should be virtually indistinguishable.
