REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, MATARAM -- Muslim intellectual TGH Muhammad Zainul Majdi called on the world not to submit to unilateral statement of US President Donald Trump who recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital

"Trump's statement must be rejected and opposed. The world must not subject to the madness of one person, whoever it is," the West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) governor known as Tuan Guru Bajang (TGB) said to Republika.co.id, at Islamic Center NTB, on Friday (December 8). 

TGB assessed, Trump's statement as a madness because it has violates all religious values as well as humanity, justice, international agreements, international laws and UN resolutions.

Therefore, TGB supported President Joko Widodo's and Indonesian government's stance against Trump's decision.

"We urge the government to strenghten diplomacy. We urge OIC, Islamic countries to gather and we urge UN to held a special session on the issue," he said.

He said, Trump's decision has undermined existing relationship and caused tension, not only in the Middle East but also in Indonesia.

Palestine is a sensitive issue and there is zero tolerance against such madness as shown by Trump, he said.

"Palestinian rights to be independent should be our priority. Indonesia has committed that independence is the right of all nations, so we must defend Palestine," TGB said.
