Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has firmly warned US President-elect Donald Trump of the potential consequences of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds, describing the likely move as an “aggression” against the independent state of Palestine, PressTV said.

Abbas made the remarks during a speech he made in the occupied West Bank city of Bethlehem on Friday, adding that “any statement or position that disrupts or changes the status of Jerusalem al-Quds is a red line which we will never accept.”

Trump repeatedly said during his campaign that if elected, he would not hesitate to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem al-Quds, which is regarded by Palestinians as their future capital, the report continued to say.

“Jerusalem al-Quds is the capital of our state. It is the open capital for all monotheistic religions, Islam, Christianity and Judaism. It is the right of all religions to perform their religious rituals with total comfort in Jerusalem al-Quds, our eternal capital,” Abbas further said.

“Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas” => Legally speaking, Abbas ain’t president anymore since 2008. Now, let’s be clear, what Abbas says is total bullshit : He perfectly knows there’ll be no Palestinian State as there’s not even a Palestinian people, ROFL! This fraud last for a century, even the so-called Palestinians have enough of it. Soon they’ll either be Israelis or others will have their real nationality back as Jordans or Egyptians, maybe even Syrians or Saudis : “The Palestinian people have no national identity. I, Yasser Arafat, man of destiny, will give them that identity through conflict with Israel.”-Yaser Arafat… Read more »

I love how you spout your usual Zio rhetoric and then add an anti-Zio sentence at the very end to make it seem as though you are not another pro-Zio shill.

I’m neither pro nor anti. I’m just realistic and stick to facts, historical or statistics. Facts don’t care if you like it or not! Gosh, fucking look at who I’m quoting! It’s not Netanyahu, It’s not Shimon Peres, neither Golda Meir or Ben Gurion! It’s Arafat, Haafez al-Assad, it’s Arab leaders!!! Just verify yourself about Abbas! He actually cancelled the 2008 elections and no elections were held since in Judea-Samaria! There is no rhetoric, exactly like if you state that Black September was led by Abu Daoud, the #3 of PLO and you can be sure of something : if… Read more »

Dude, you’re heavily pro zio, it’s transparent as hell to see. We can sit here all day long argue about who originally held the land – real arab palestinians or ‘jews’ that somehow did not descend from khazars or really came back from europe to their somehow ancestral land and tried to steal the land back over time. Here are my links and sources, I choose the palestinian people’s side because that appeals to my instincts, intuition, common sense and research. While you obviously choose the oppsosite side, good on you. That of a massmurdering regime, who instead of sending… Read more »
