JAKARTA. President of America, Donald Trump’s decision to move the American embassy to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has drawn criticism from various parts of the world including Indonesia. Today Friday (11/05) Indonesian Muslim community gathered at the National Monument Jakarta (Monas) to conduct Freedom of Beit al-Maqdis Action. This action is a form of protest against the decision of the President of America and as a form of support for the Palestinians and Al-Aqsa Mosque, the first kiblat of Muslims.
