    Jerusalem ‘red line’ for all Muslims, President Erdoğan says

    resident Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticized Tuesday a possible White House-decision to relocate the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and recognize the city as the Israeli capital, saying that Jerusalem is a “red line” for all Muslims, and that Turkey could go as far as severing all diplomatic ties with Israel if the U.S. moved ahead with the decision. “I want to express once again my sadness about the news that the U.S. is preparing to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Jerusalem, Mr. Trump, is a red line for Muslims,” Erdoğan said and suggested that Turkey could even sever all diplomatic ties with Israel.
