ISTANBUL, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Islamic countries have voiced their doubt about the U.S. role in searching for peace between Palestinians and Israelis after U.S. President Donald Trump broke decades of Washington policy by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Leaders of Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) rejected the U.S. decision as "null and void" and hit back by declaring East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine at a one-day summit of the OIC held in Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday.
The OIC leaders warned Washington of "all the consequences" of not retracting its decision and said the United States would lose its role as a sponsor of the peace process, according to a draft final communique adopted at the summit.
Addressing a press conference following the summit Elie Okobo Jersey , Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said the United States is no longer an honest broker of peace.

In the view of Mehmet Seyfettin Erol, president of the Ankara Center for Crisis and Policy Studies, OIC countries are showing "one hundred percent unity" as well as a "very strong stance" against the United States.
"Furthermore Devin Booker Jersey , declaring the U.S. as partial and refusing its involvement in the future peace process as a mediator will also jeopardize the U.S. involvement as a superpower in other crises in the Middle East," he said.
"This is diplomatically a very important message," he said. "We can consider this as an awakening of the Muslim world."
