MBC yesterday suspended a TV programme hosted by Jordanian presenter, Ola Al-Fares, following an â€śangry campaignâ€ť that was launched against her on Twitter by political activists, Saudi Arabiaâ€™sÂ OkazÂ reported.
The news agency noted thatÂ MBCâ€™s move came after many Saudi Twitter activists demanded her programme be removed after she published tweets which they said â€śinsulted Saudi Arabiaâ€ť.
â€śTrump did not choose the recognition timing coincidently,â€ť Al-Fares said on Twitter, referring to American allies in the region who would have backed the decision before it was made public. â€śTonight we condemn and tomorrow we sing.â€ť
On Wednesday, the US President Donald Trump announced his decision to formally recognise Jerusalem as Israelâ€™s new capital adding that the American embassy would be moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
World leaders, from Europe to the Middle East to Australia, slammed the decision as a â€śunilateral and outside the vision of a negotiated peace between Israelis and Palestinians,â€ť warning of â€śheightened tensions or even violence across the Middle East.â€ť
