Thousands of protesters participated in a demonstration in New York condemning Trump's decision to recognize al-Quds as the capital of Israel.

The demonstrators gathered in Times Square on Friday night while chanting, slogans "From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” reported by Veterans Today.

Protesters, who filled the sidewalks of Seventh Avenue, between 41st and 42nd streets, waved Palestinian flags or held up signs proclaiming, “Free free Palestine” and “End the Occupation."

 “The whole world knows that Jerusalem [al-Quds] is divided.  So I can’t all of the sudden come and say, ‘Okay, I’m going to devide New York to so and so,”  said Amal Al-Shrouf, a protester at Time Square, in an interview.

“You’re seeing unrest not only in the US but all over the world,” said Omar Awad, president of the Islamic Center of Passaic County.

Sayel Kayed, who leads the New Jersey chapter of American Muslims for Palestine, described Trump's decision, as a “slap in the face” for Muslims who face discrimination in Jerusalem al-Quds.

“This is a move to ethnically cleanse the Palestine area even more,” he said.

Protestors urged US policy decission makers to think twice before taking further steps.
