The president made no reference to Palestinian claims on Arab parts of the city or their expectations that their capital, too, would be in part of Jerusalem.

The violence came amid days of unrest sparked by Trump's dramatic announcement Wednesday.

A U.N. Security Council resolution adopted in December last year "underlines that it will not recognise any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the parties through negotiations". Israel considers all of Jerusalem to be its capital. Israeli media identified him as Yassin Abu al-Qarah, who posted on his Facebook page in recent days about Jerusalem, writing "our blood is devoted" to the holy city.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the guard sustained a serious wound to his upper body and the attacker was apprehended. Trump has given Mahmoud Abbas no corresponding gift, though the latter is far more vulnerable.

In the West Bank, demonstrators torched heaps of tires, sending columns of thick black smoke rising over the cities of Ramallah and Bethlehem. "In this case, Donald Trump has control of nuclear weapons".

This week, President Trump declared that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. For instance, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, in an ebullient reaction to the new U.S. policy, told NPR that Israel alone should rule Jerusalem. Several European leaders have warned the U.S. shift could further destabilize the region. And I will also visit Gaza, from which Israel pulled out in 1995, where the radical Hamas movement, temporarily tamed, could resume firing rockets into Israel.

In the past, Israel has imposed age restrictions at Jerusalem's Temple Mount compound where violence often erupts during tense times.

A second Palestinian was killed along the Gaza Strip, authorities said.

It is the inevitable and natural result of a Palestinian leadership that has decided that some violence will look good on TV and will help their own political position. They acknowledged that Washington would most likely veto it.

Dozens of Palestinian protesters were injured in the skirmishes that erupted after Friday prayers.

What I witnessed on Thursday was a mild beginning to what may develop into a sustained violent expression of the pent-up anger felt by most Palestinians - whether they live in Jerusalem or outside. And it laid such a beating on Egypt in 1973 as to force Sadat to make peace, for which he was assassinated.

Both Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis have expressed concern about the timing of Trump's announcement, according to U.S. officials.

Li Guofu, director of Middle East studies at the China Institute of International Studies in Beijing, said Trump's decision posed a long-term security threat to Chinese people in the region - but mainly businesspeople and engineers. "I am monitoring the attitudes on WhatsApp strings, and sentiment is for greater militancy".

Event: In April, President Trump signed an executive order to expand offshore drilling for oil and gas reserves in areas that President Obama had withdrawn from energy development.

.

They lost their voices chanting "Free Palestine!" and Uber drivers held out their cell phones displaying the flags of Muslim-majority countries. Jerusalem always seems like the ground near a volcano; you never know when the great eruptions come, but you can almost feel the pressure building under your feet. Police were restrained and kept the crowd marching.
