(Worthy News) - A delegation of church leaders from Jerusalem who met with Jordanian King Abdullah II reiterated their opposition to US recognition of the city as the capital of Israel and censured “attempts to Judaize” it, Jordanian state media said Sunday.

Abdullah, as Jordanian head of state, is considered custodian of Jerusalem’s Muslim and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
