CWN Editor's Note: Maronite Catholic Patriarch Bechara Rai said that President Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem “has demolished the peace efforts... fueled the fire of a new intifada, and transformed Jerusalem, the city of peace, into a city of war.” The move is “a slap in the face of Palestinians, Christians, Muslims, and all the Arabs,” he said.
