Nazareth Christmas celebrations will probably be held as regular…”

"We have made a decision to cancel the traditional Christmas singing and dancing because we are in a time of dispute, because of what Trump has said about Jerusalem", city spokesman Salem Sharara said, Reuters reported.

Israeli police detain an Israeli Arab man during clashes in Nazareth in northern Israel.

Some Christmas celebrations have reportedly been canceled in Nazareth as a protest against President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The status of Jerusalem is at the center of Israel's conflict with the Palestinians because the city is sacred to Judaism and Islam.

Following the 1967 Middle East war, Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital, according to, but the claim is not recognised by the worldwide community or Palestinians.

"It is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel", he said.

The mayor of Nazareth has drawn more attention because of his criticism of President Trump, saying that Trump has taken the "joy" out of Christmas. For many across the Arab world, Trump's announcement put an end to any chance of a peace agreement.

Hamas, meanwhile, said the decision "opens the gates of hell" and called for several days of protests.

Following the 1967 Middle East war, Israel declared Jerusalem as its capital. "... I saw that it is appropriate to cancel all the celebrations organized by the municipality of Nazareth, An inseparable part of this steadfast people, who are tormented by the wretched Trump in the holiness of his holiness".

It's known as one of the holiest cities in Christianity, the place where the Angel Gabriel told Mary she was pregnant with the son of God, and the city where Jesus was raised. Israel's I-24 News also reported this move.

Today, however, around two-thirds of the population in Nazareth is Muslim, according to sources.

Nazareth, a Muslim-majority city in Israel, stages a Christmas celebration each year with performances, a holiday market, tree lighting and parade. Dozens of Arab Israelis demonstrated outside the American embassy in Tel Aviv this week and waved Palestinian flags.

Pastor John Hagee, founder of Christians United for Israel, wrote on Facebook: "Let's unite together on this historic day to pray for our president, our nation and the nation of Israel like never before".
