President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel may be felt all the way to the Southern Tier.

Trump announced on Wednesday the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his intention of moving the USA embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Israel considers the city its eternal and indivisible capital and wants all embassies based there.

"Jerusalem is a sensitive issue for all, so the Christian leaders, (following) the pope, are making an appeal to President Trump to be wise - there is a need for wisdom ... especially in such an explosive situation", he said.

He added that he had "consistently spoken out against any unilateral measures".

The front page of one of Lebanon's papers declared "Death to America" and the Palestinian militant group Hamas called for an uprising to make Trump "regret" his decision, The Hill reported. The mufti is an important figure for Sunni Muslims, not just locally but regionally. "This step would turn the region into a flame of conflicts that will inevitably lead to disastrous consequences and would adversely affect the region and the global community".

Trump said this marks the start of a "new approach" to solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
