Byline: Mohammad Fayyaz - Mianwali
DONALD Trump's decision to recognise Jerusalem as the Israeli capital will have a ruinous impact on global peace prospect especially the Middle East. He has flouted the warnings of Muslim countries and signed the move without the fear of a severe backlash on the part of the Islamic world.
With a stroke of his pen he has aroused feelings of anger and hatred against the US all over the Muslim world.
Since his ascendancy to the White House, Trump has shown disregard for all agreements and pacts signed by previous US presidents.
By slapping a travel ban on the nationals of seven - later six - Muslim countries during his early days in the office, Trump made his prejudice against Muslims clear.
Muslim states must set aside their differences and draw up a joint strategy to deal with the situation.
