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.

  1. “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

    General Giap advise to Arafat :
    “Stop talking about annihilating Israel and instead turn your terror war into a struggle for human rights.Then you will have the American people eating out of your hand.”

    “Do not forget one thing : there is no Palestinian people, no Palestinian entity, there is only Syria” – Hafez al-Assad, 1976

    Muhammad Yazid to Arafat, 1967
    “Wipe out the argument that Israel is a small state whose existence is threatened by the Arab states, or the reduction of the Palestinian problem to a question of refugees; instead, present the Palestinian struggle as a struggle for liberation like the others. Wipe out the impression . . . that in the struggle between the Palestinians and the Zionists, the Zionist is the underdog. Now it is the Arab who is oppressed and victimized in his existence because he is not only facing the Zionists but also world imperialism.”

    “There is no such thing as Palestine! Palestine is a term the Zionists invented! There is no Palestine in the Bible. Our country was for centuries, part of Syria.”Auni Bey Abdul-Hadi, “Palestnian” local leader, 1937, before the Peel Commission

    “There is no such thing as Palestine in [Arab] history, absolutely not.”-Philip Hitti, Arab historian, 1946

    Fathi Hammad, Palestinian minister of internal affairs/national security says the truth : that the Palestinian people is a fraud!

    * Another one said it publicly 40 years ago :
    “The ‘palestinian’ people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a “Palestinian” people since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa while as a “Palestinian”, I can undoubtely demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”
    – Zahir Muhsein, PLO Executive Committee, March 1977

    IMHO, Bibi’s gonna cross Abbas’ red line. Anyway, Abbas’ hypocrisy must cease, enough bogus.
    Facts don’t care about if people like it or not.

    NB : notice that how do MSM trying to sell us al-Nusra’n’Co terrorists? As… Freedom fighters against the evil Assad regime! Same was done with the Talebans in Afghanistan 😉 😀

      • 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 he was the only one to die naturally in the group, it’s that he sold his comrades to Mossad to save his own ass…
        Seriously, do you really buy what Abbas says, i.e. Jesus was (Arab) Palestinian? That there was no Shoah while even Arafat’s who once was a Waffen SS general bragged about how he helped Himmler while at the blue prints level, to make Auschwitz more efficient or how he managed to have the Afrika-Korps being followed by mobile gas-chambers into to have Aktion Rheinhardt follow wherever they went? In Tunis only, they managed to gas 1200 Jews. Now I put you to the test to find ANY archaeological evidence of Arab presence on the west bank of Jordan river before 635AD and just have a look at Brit or Ottoman census to make yourself sure that there were VERY few Arabs before 1920! I wouldn’t be too surprise that, at the same time, Lebanon was made of a majority of Christians as it was intended to become a Christian state by colonial powers and that, as it was made for the Jewish ‘Palestine’, Arabs were sent, beginning around 1920, in order to outnumber Christians in Lebanon the same way it was intended to outnumber Jews. I’ll have to find some around 1920 census of Lebanon, it might be very interesting.
        IMHO, I wouldn’t be too surprised if there was some T.E.Lawrence behind the idea of trying to outnumber Christians and Jews, especially Christians in the French mandate as he was fucking Francophobic.
        BTW, ever heard of the short lived (4 months) Arab Kingdom of Syria in 1920? Faisal I then became King of Iraq from 1921 to 1933.
        There was serious T.E.Lawrence self project behind it :
        https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3c/FEisalKingdom.png
        This ended with the enforcement of Sykes-Picot agreement.
        Thus, the initial Lawrence plan was it.

        Now I’m gonna fucking shock you! This is what Faisal I of Iraq wrote in 1919 :
        “We Arabs… look with the deepest sympathy on the Zionist movement. Our deputation here in Paris is fully acquainted with the proposals submitted yesterday by the Zionist Organisation to the Peace Conference, and we regard them as moderate and proper. We will do our best, insofar as we are concerned, to help them through; we will wish the Jews a most hearty welcome home… I look forward, and my people with me look forward, to a future in which we will help you and you will help us, so that the countries in which we are mutually interested may once again take their places in the community of the civilised peoples of the world.”
        Never heard of the Faisal-Weizmann Agreement?
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faisal%E2%80%93Weizmann_Agreement
        So… From where all this (stupid) irrational hatred comes from?
        Watch this!

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrj1jbYLnL4
        Now, let me point you this : there is neither Zionist or anti-Zionist rhetoric from me, it’s just that if you don’t build a house on sand, you don’t build peace on lies!
        Now meditate it : over 69 years, IDF killed just about 75k Arabs, including collateral damages. It’s around the same the number of death due to the IS war on Iraq since 2014. Lebanese civil war scored the double, the Libyan one thrice, it’s a joke if compared to the Iraq civil war 2003-2011, the Iran-Iraq war, the Gulf war, the Algerian civil war in the 90’s and not even speaking about Turkish “ethnic cleansing” since 1915… When it comes to so-called “Palestinians”, King Hussein of Jordan actually killed more of them (25k) in order to oust them from Jordan in 1970-71 than IDF killed since 1967 (!).
        Don’t ALL the parts of the puzzle match?
        When all parts match in any historic research, bingo, you found the truth!
        Now, do you know how your mindset will end? Don’t you understand it’ll end as a nuclear conflict?

        • 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 in some special forces from their heavily vaunted army to quell a hamas and fatah insurgency (who i am AGAINST FWIW As they do not really represent the interests of palestinians but their own!!!!), decided to just bomb the hell out of women, children and elders and invite ”israelis” in the golan heights to even come set up a picnic and enjoy the genocidal fireworks!!!
