across the occupied palestinian territories it comes as muslim leaders staged an extraordinary summit in istanbul to discuss u.s. president donald trump's decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel a draft communique from the summit named east jerusalem the capital of a future palestinian state countering chum's declaration in bethlehem in the occupied west bank israeli forces trying to disperse palestinian protesters by firing tear gas on them demonstrators threw stones and but tires in the street a checkpoint between the city and jerusalem fighting has also broken out in the city of ramallah palestinians rallying in the streets had to take cover from rubber coated steel bullets fired by israeli forces on the cover of offices or the abdel-hamid reports from ramallah. well certainly the anger. disappointment disillusion and this really a lack of hope that anything will get better any time soon now if you asked people
how they felt about the speech of mahmoud abbas earlier today they said it was the strongest they heard to him. since a while but they were also disappointed that the final communique thinking that that did not go far enough that there's no concrete steps now people are feeling is that. they fear that eventually despite all the efforts of mahmoud abbas to go to the u.n. to go to the i.c.c. to exclude the u.s. from any future peace negotiations they start at any time soon they fear that they would be pressure at some point and that he might have to backtrack people say the words are all good but we've heard so many good words in the past so many promises so many. agreements signed and so many times where peace was
hailed as big as being there coming soon well none of that happened twenty five years of efforts have gone down the drain so at the moment they don't really believe in anything. at that summit attended by fifty seven muslim world leaders palestine's president said the u.s. can no longer mediate the peace process mohammed has more from a stumble. of the hastily convened mitten of the organization of islamic cooperation is tumble members recognize the palestinian state with occupied is jerusalem as its capital there was thronged could have missions to for both the u.s. and israel the palestinian president mahmoud abbas declared that palestinians will no longer accept the u.s. as a mediator in the middle east peace process in his strongest statement yet says donald trump's amongst them and abbas called the move a client of the u. and to take over the peace process. the united states chose to lose its role in
eligibility as a mediator and not to have a role in the political process we will not accept any american role in the political process from now on the u.s. is biased to israel that is our position this is a major crime that requires us to come out with decisive decisions that protect the identity of jerusalem until we end the israeli occupation of the state of palestine the summit was convened by the turkish president through egypt taib it on a self proclaimed champion of the palestinian calls. stubborn killer although i would like to call all nations around the globe to respect international law to rise up and recognize jerusalem as the occupied capital city of the state of palestine we will never give up on our demand for a free and sovereign palestinian state the capital of which is jerusalem and as islamic countries we condemn the violence of israeli soldiers our palestinian brothers and sisters protesting the latest decision of the united states and the
ones hopes of uniting muslim leaders behind a top finals from the mid it was awarded in the end the organization of islamic countries also adopted the palestinian state as of dinner cinemas it's. also at the meeting walking up the love jordan the lebanese president michel on the middle of qatar ship to mean been home adult. and the iranian president hassan rouhani they called on muslim nations to unite to defend the rights of palestinians honey dean is it called mother. or when you reach rock bottom of the only way you can go is. stickler ation might be what the palestinian cause needed to come back into the limelight i see hope in the future. in a sign of cracks in the unity of the muslim world so did it be an egypt were presented a junior level and took a box it in the proceedings in common seem to be aimed at soda iranian president
hassan rouhani said the only reason to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel was because some in the region was seeking to establish ties to israel donald trump some also going through last week prompted a massive all courting off in the muslim world tens of thousands of people flocked to the streets to denounce israel and express their solidarity with the palestinians muslim leaders today hear how the opportunity to do the same but everything from here on in depends on how the agreement they reach here gets implemented mohammed at the wall just stumbled. u.k. prime minister to resign may have suffered a major blow to her bracks it plans after m.p.'s voted in favor of an amendment she has strongly opposed and means that pays will now have a vote on any bricks it do with the european union before the agreement is
finalized the parliament voted three hundred nine to three hundred five in favor of an amendment which could complicate may's efforts to sever ties with you a political commentator says the government's defeat in this vote will not have any practical effect on the united kingdom eventually needing european union. it's a symbolic vote because it's not one that's going to be able to overturn breck's it because article fifty which is the use formal exit clause that that says that the u.k. will leave the e.u. by march twenty one thousand it's already been triggered and that would only be overturned if there was another referendum here where the public voted to stay and that's not going to happen so this is largely a symbolic acts although more than symbolic in the sense that parliament is saying we want to have scrutiny over the bracks that process therefore it's important nonetheless it is not a vote that's going to overturn the actual decision to vote so ultimately what we're facing is either parliament vote to accept the terms of that as they are
delivered or you would crash if they voted against it you'd basically crash out with no deal so the hardest bracks it's an aria and i don't think that parliamentarians be in favor of that so again this is a very very important symbolic stand about parliamentary sovereignty rather than overturning burke's itself our u.k. correspondent barnaby philips took to the road east out of london to gauge the mood in what could be a pivotal week for the brics and negotiations. winter on the essex riviera east of london this is bret's hit country so they feel everything is stuck or flowing smoothly in the right direction like many fisherman jack smith wanted breck's it so that he would be allowed to catch more of a bigger quota or feel as if it couldn't be quicker. than in a bit more money with no think. it just takes as long as it takes you to
please his customers and remain as if to resume a has taken on board that she can handle. the looks that could spiritually which she does she. is taking forever in a day but i'm not surprised really because you've got britain standing on its own now against the rest of the year and they're all going to walk by you want and you know we're going to become very small fry again one and a half years after the bricks in the country is still divided roughly down the middle opinion polls show that very few people regret their decision that still vote exactly the same way today somehow the prime minister has to bring a divided country together statement the prime minister she believes she's doing that securing last week's deal on britain's withdrawal tabs this is good news today
people who say she had to leave to a war it that we were so bogged down in the negotiations torturous negotiations it was never going to happen it's good news for people who voted remained a bit worried we were going to crash out without a deal we are going to need but we're going to do so in a smooth and orderly way. for now progress it and peace are ready to trust the prime minister even as they grumble about the tens of billions of dollars britain will have to pay as it is the. what i will not have been agree to is any kind of money being used as a as a bribe you know we don't we're a big enough country not to feel that we have to bribe anybody but i do think we should pay the commitments that we have made certainly up until the time we leave. european leaders are likely to agree to start talks about a future relationship with britain it's slow but brics it seems to be moving forward although expects storms ahead final destination far from certain phillips
al-jazeera essex. u.s. president donald trump has distanced himself from roy moore with a series of tweets after the republicans suffer the historic defeat for the party in conservative alabama the loss also narrows the republican majority in the senate to fifty want to forty nine which could complicate chum's future legislative towns also in jordan reports from the white house. this wasn't the image white house staffers thought they'd see on t.v. tuesday night a democrat winning a senate seat in a predominantly republican state still president donald trump sent a congratulatory tweet a win is a win. but a few hours later trump tried to distance himself from a man he campaigned for saying that he backed roy moore even though he knew the judge was a flawed candidate who says he knew couldn't win
a lot of republicans feel differently the very happy with the way it turned out but i would have as the leader of the party i would have liked to have had to see we've been. put in no hole there is rampant speculation about whom the president would blame for moore's loss the candidate himself in light of charges he sexually abused teenage girls or steve benen long time political call the doctor who campaigned vigorously home war regardless of who gets the blame analysts say trump faces a very real problem maintaining republican control of congress after the two thousand and eighteen elections historically speaking the country votes against the president's party in the midterm election so you add that to. a president who is not popular and doesn't have a transferable brand you might have some real serious losses taken by the republican party understandably democrats are getting because black latino and
women voters turned out to vote for judge jones but they also think republicans are weekend by their party's own problems including racism fascism and general infighting the division this that that was caused within the republican party by banner and all the sort of by all that comes out of the administration that this is just and i know the majority of the members of the senate republican side in addition people they know they're not comfortable with this territory it would be easy to think that president donald trump and the republicans are now on the defensive and that democrats are going to successfully use voter discontent to retake control of congress in next year's elections but not so fast eleven months is an eternity in u.s. politics and who knows what challenges will arise to keep both the republicans and the democrats on their proverbial toes in the coming year rosalyn jordan al-jazeera
