The various Arab and Islamic groups have declared that Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be ‘Days of Rage’. They made their announcement ahead of President Trump’s final decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem.
They called for violence and riots throughout Israel and specifically in front of the US Consulate.
“The national and Islamic forces: ‘We declare Wednesday, Thursday and Friday days popular outrage throughout Palestine and in front of the U.S. Consulate refused to any resolution that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of the Israeli occupation.'”

Security Message for U.S. Citizens

With widespread calls for demonstrations beginning December 6 in Jerusalem and the West Bank, U.S. government employees and their family members are not permitted until further notice to conduct personal travel in Jerusalem’s Old City and in the West Bank, to include Bethlehem and Jericho. Official travel by U.S. government employees in Jerusalem’s Old City and in the West Bank is permitted only to conduct essential travel and with additional security measures. United States citizens should avoid areas where crowds have gathered and where there is increased police and/or military presence. We recommend that U.S. citizens take into consideration these restrictions and the additional guidance contained in the Department of State’s travel warning for Israel, the West Bank and Gaza when making decisions regarding their travel.
