BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:55 A.M.) – At least one person was detained by Israeli security forces in East Jerusalem on Saturday, as unrest continued over US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Footage from the scene shows Israeli forces rushing down a street, before apprehending a man and pinning him to the ground. During the arrest, the Israeli forces are also shown shoving away journalists and throwing stun grenades at them in order to disperse them.

Last Wednesday, Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel during a live televised address from Washington DC.

The decision sparked immediate outrage and from across the world. The status of the Holy City is seen as a key issue in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
