The US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital is indeed a wrong move. Despite the warning of a dire consequence from world leaders, Trump went ahead with his plan. Many world leaders seem to have opposed the move because it might spark violence and turmoil. However, in my opinion, they should have opposed the idea only on the basis that it was not a right thing to do.
According to international law, Israel's occupation of Jerusalem is illegal. After each of the wars in 1948 and 1967, Israel encroached on Palestinian and Arab lands. First, they occupied West Jerusalem and then they occupied East Jerusalem. Occupying a foreign land by using force is illegal and unethical. The international community should oppose Trump's decision because it is wrong.
