Less than a week after President Trump’s decision to recognize Yerushalayim as Israel’s capital, Palestinian protests have largely fizzled out, NBC reports.
Fewer than 20 demonstrators gathered outside the U.S. Consulate in Yerushalayim and chanted pro-Palestinian slogans, but they were outnumbered by journalists.
The predicted tidal wave of regional instability has so far failed to materialize.
Analysts say part of the reason is that the primary feeling among Palestinians right now is not rage, but rather despair and fatigue, Vox reports.
“Many Palestinians who went through the Second Intifada don’t want to repeat it,” says Ghaith al-Omari, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
Plus, Omari adds, Palestinians sense there is a lack of direction from their political leaders, and are thus reluctant to protest without a clear purpose.
