Wisma Putra said Trump’s decision, which he announced yesterday, would put an end to all efforts made to achieve peace in the Middle East, which centred on the Palestinian question.

  • What you talk about - "blow to fight against terror"? Terror has been existing in the Mid East for so long....most of it self-inflicted. Trump's decision wouldn't be responsible for terror; it's occupants have proven a long time ago, that they are more than capable of manufacturing it by themselves.
