While Palestinians have taken to the streets to denounce US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a Palestinian couple showed their protest by naming their new-born triplets Quds (the Arabic name for the city of Jerusalem), Palestine and Easima (literally: capital in Arabic).

According to Nidal and Islam al-Siqaly from Khan Yunis, their symbolic act of protest demonstrated their affection towards their homeland and their opposition to Trump’s decision, with Nidal, the father saying, “what I did is not enough, I offer myself and my children, my wife and all of us for Jerusalem.”

All other family members also have symbolic names as Nidal pointed out. “I am Nidal [Struggle, in Arabic], my wife is Islam, my elder daughter is Dalal Mughrabi [a dead Palestine militant].”

Islam, the mother, echoed Nidal’s sentiment adding, “God willing, our Lord will give us a new daughter and will name her Eternal so that Jerusalem will remain the eternal capital of Palestine.”

The three babies were born at the end of last year just after Trump’s decision.

Funny fact : he shows the map of Jewish Palestine AKA Israel, not the map of Arab Palestine AKA Jordan. Capital city of Arab Palestine is Amman, not Jerusalem.
BTW, there is no “P” letter in Arab, so he says “Falestine”… Just a letter far from the truth : “Fakestine”, thus “Phallustine” sounds nice too…
