"We stand by our Palestinian friends who cannot be left alone on this troubling day. We call on the international community to transform this dramatic announcement into a turning point when we finally wake up and create – today, and not tomorrow – a dynamic that will bring peace to Arabs and Israelis in the Middle East. President Trump leaves us no other choice than taking action ourselves and the European Union must be in the frontline.

“We fully understand the rage of the Palestinian people, but we call for all to avoid violence as a response.
