“Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Thursday called for a new Palestinian intifada, or uprising, over US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. ‘This Zionist policy supported by the US cannot be confronted unless we ignite a new intifada,’ the head of the armed Palestinian terrorist group that runs the Gaza Strip said in a speech in Gaza City. Several thousand Palestinians marched in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip on Wednesday night and Thursday morning, burning US and Israeli flags while chanting ‘Death to America’ and ‘Death to Israel.’ In the West Bank, The Palestine Liberation Organization announced a strike in protest across the territory, shutting schools and businesses.” (12/07/17)
