Afghans on Friday launched big demonstrations in many provinces against the recent decision made by the United States President Donald Trump about the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Trump on Wednesday announced that he officially recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. His decision raised worldwide concern.
As part of the reactions to Trump’s decisions, Afghans launched protests in the Afghan capital, Kabul, and in a number of provinces such as Kunduz, Balkh, Baghlan, Paktia, Paktika, Panjshir, Nimroz and many more and sharply criticized US president’s decision.
The angry protesters said recognition of Jerusalem as Israel capital is against all the international laws and human rights.
“This move will cause international discrimination, will violate human rights and civilization,” said Abdul Rahman, a protester.
A number of protesters meanwhile said the US and its allies must leave Afghanistan.
“The US and its allies must go out of Afghanistan,” Rafiullah Quraishi, a protester said.
“We will have diplomatic and friendly relationships with the people who deliver their promises,” Motasimbellah, another protester said.
Imams in the country's mosques during Friday sermons said Trump’s decision on Jerusalem is unacceptable.
“Palestinians have lost their soil, the Jews have ocuppied the White House and they are outlining the US's cruel foreign policy and have seized the US nation’s will,” Mohammad Ayaz Niazi, Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan Mosque’s Imam, said.
The protesters called on Trump to take back what he has said and decided about Jerusalem.
