Ha! Ha! East Jerusalem should be declared Palestinian state’s capital, say Muslim world leaders

East Jerusalem must be recognised by the world as the capital of an independent Palestinian state, more than 50 Muslim nations have said, in a move designed to counter Donald Trump’s decision to recognise the contested city as Israeli.

A draft declaration from an extraordinary Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) meeting was distributed to reporters on Wednesday. The Trump administration’s move is “null and void” and means that the US can no longer act as an “unbiased” sponsor in Middle East peace talks, it read.
