Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak called on Muslims everywhere to strongly oppose any recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
UMNO AGM | In his policy speech at the Umno annual general assembly today, president Najib Abdul Razak took the opportunity to insist that his party is not racist, and is especially not anti-Chinese. President Donald Trump reversed decades of United States policy and recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a move that was condemned by the Muslim countries across the world. (Allah is the Greatest) three times by the delegates on the floor and Umno members outside the hall who were watching the live telecast of the session.
The Umno president also said he concurred with his deputy, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, that Malaysians should be "colour-blind" when it came to humanitarian issues.
He said Umno had never and will never compromise with any matter that involved insults towards the sanctity of Islam and its teachings, be them in Malaysia and in all corners of the world.
It was reported that US President Donald Trump yesterday recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and stated that the US would shift its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in the near future.
