On several days this week, protesters in cities across the Middle East took to the streets to reject President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In some cases, those protests resulted in violent clashes with security forces and arrests.

Trump made the speech in which he vowed to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Wednesday.

World leaders had warned the U.S. president that such a move could trigger backlash from Muslims around the globe.

That day, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised Trump’s decision.

But Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority, slammed Trump. Men in Ramallah in the West Bank streamed into the streets carrying the red, black, white and green Palestinian flag.

On Thursday, Arab leaders decried Trump’s decision, and more protests erupted in the West Bank and in Turkey.

In Peshawar, Pakistan, black smoke rose in front of a crowd of men shouting and pumping fists. One man had dropped a match, setting fire to Israeli and American flags. The demonstrators held signs condemning the move by the Trump administration.

Friday protests spread to other Arab countries. In at least two towns in Syria, hundreds of people gathered, chanting and holding Palestinian flags.

Two men unfurled a sign reading, “Trump’s stealing Arab’s money, sold their sacred places.”

Israeli troops clashed with Palestinian dissidents in Jerusalem. One man told The Post’s Ruth Eglash, “He, God, only decide what’s going to happen here.”

“No Trump, no Netanyahu, no Abbas, nobody. Nobody,” he added.
