Abbas’ advisor on religious affairs calls US Ambassador David Friedman a “terrorist settler,” says he is “disparaging” Islam 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 24, 2018
“Supreme Shari’ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash called on the Arab and Islamic governments, organizations, and peoples to respond to US Ambassador to the occupation state [Israel] David Friedman’s disparaging of the Islamic faith.
Al-Habbash said in a statement that Friedman’s appearance next to a large picture of the Jerusalem sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount), where the Dome of the Rock is removed from it and a picture of the alleged Temple is inserted in its place, is a provocative step that constitutes a racist insinuation and criminal incitement for the destruction of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque (Friedman has clarified he was unaware of the image that was presented to him and called it unacceptable; see note below –Ed.)…
He [Al-Habbash] said: ‘The removal of the sites that are holy to Islam in Jerusalem is a racist goal of the extremists and the extreme right-wing that rules in the occupation state. The awaited goal of these criminals, and among them settler terrorist David Friedman, is to make the Palestinians disappear from Jerusalem and cause them to migrate from it’…
Al-Habbash said: ‘We expect a historic Arab and Islamic response to this racist provocation by the American ambassador. We must not agree to less than an explicit apology from him personally and from the American administration, his final return [to the US], the cancelation of the American decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the closing of the American settlement that was inaugurated in Jerusalem and falsely called an ‘embassy.’”
Abbas’ top advisor: “Every state that transfers its embassy to Jerusalem is committing a crime against international law” and the PA will “take steps against the states that commit this crime” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 22, 2018
Headline: “Widespread Palestinian rage and condemnation of the transfer of the Paraguayan embassy to occupied Jerusalem”

“Supreme Shari’ah Judge of Palestine and [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash emphasized that Jerusalem was and will remain the eternal capital of the State of Palestine, and that the Israeli occupation state’s attempts to impose a false and imagined legitimacy on the city will fail.
Al-Habbash emphasized in a statement that every state that transfers its embassy to Jerusalem is committing a crime against international law and participating in aggression against the Palestinian, Islamic, and Christian rights in the holy city. He added that these states have disgraced themselves, and history will remember them as aggressive states that committed crimes against the Palestinian people.
He said that the leadership will take steps against the states that commit this crime, and will demand that the international community punish those who have violated the sanctity of the international decisions and strayed from the international consensus that has repeatedly emphasized that Jerusalem has been Arab Palestinian from time immemorial.”

PLO official in Syria condemns move of US embassy to Jerusalem; “The people of Palestine will only be satisfied after the liberation of all of the Palestinian land” 
Source: Website of Fatah's Information and ‎Culture Commission, May 16, 2018
     "The Fatah branch in Syria held a procession of rage today, Tuesday [May 15, 2018], in the Khan Danun refugee camp in [the Syrian governorate of] Rif Dimashq, as a sign of solidarity with our people in the homeland.
Secretary of the [Fatah] Syria branch Huda Al-Badawi, female members of the branch committee, and Director-General of the PLO Political Department Anwar Abd Al-Hadi headed the procession…
In an exclusive interview with the Fatah Information [and Culture] Commission, Al-Badawi emphasized that the right of return is a legal right of our Palestinian people, and noted that Fatah adheres to the fundamental principles and that there is no alternative to return…
Al-Badawi directed a message to [US President Donald] Trump and Israel that our cause will continue to be alive and kicking regardless of how much time passes, that Palestine belongs solely to the Palestinians, and that there is no alternative capital except for Jerusalem, and it does not matter how many embassies are transferred [to Jerusalem] and how many deals are signed... Abd Al-Hadi condemned the transfer of the American settlement (i.e., the US embassy) to Jerusalem, and emphasized that the people of Palestine will only be satisfied after the liberation of all of the Palestinian land and the establishment of its independent Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem."

Op-ed in PA daily: Trump is “stupid;” “This outpost (i.e., the US embassy) that Trump has established in our Jerusalem will be uprooted” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 16, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Donald Trump plants a settlement in our Jerusalem”
     “[US President] Donald Trump, who issued the ominous Jerusalem declaration (i.e., recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital) and talks about ‘the deal of the century’ (i.e., Trump’s as yet unrevealed Middle East peace plan), continues in his unparalleled stupidity to talk about peace.
We are continuing our just struggle. The US has no place in the Middle East peace. It has lost its position, qualification, and credibility. Donald Trump, who transformed it [the US] from a mediator into an enemy, is leading the hostility…
This outpost (i.e., the US embassy) that Trump has established in our Jerusalem will be uprooted, and what will remain is the face of free Palestine.”

Op-ed in PA daily: Ceremony opening US embassy in Jerusalem was the “celebration of a Zionist gang of robbers who stole the history and land” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 16, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

       “Before I watched the Zionist ceremony establishing the American outpost in occupied Palestinian Jerusalem (i.e., the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018) I was very concerned like all of the Palestinians in the world watching their Jerusalem being Judaized in an attempt to eliminate our cause. However, after watching I calmed down again. The reason for this is that what I saw was nothing more than a gang of Zionist robbers celebrating its theft... What confirms this impression – that this is the celebration of a Zionist gang of robbers who stole the history and land – is the almost complete international absence… After I watched the gang of robbers I felt great relief, because what I saw was an isolated gang acting outside of the framework of time and space, outside of the framework of history and law; a gang led by [US President Donald] Trump and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, together with blonde model Ivanka [Trump] and her little Zionist husband [Jared] Kushner.”

“Fatah Movement Deputy Chairman [and Fatah Central Committee member] Mahmoud Al-Aloul said: ‘The crimes and massacres that the occupation is committing against our people, and the fact that it is dealing with the peaceful resistance (refers to violent mass riots on the Gaza border that have included explosives and gunfire –Ed.) with gunfire will result in us being unable to preserve the peaceful nature of the resistance.’ He added: ‘This is not because we want it, but rather because of the occupation’s actions.’
During a press conference that he convened yesterday [May 15, 2018] at the Fatah Commission of Information, Culture, and Ideology building in Ramallah to mark the 70th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), and on the topic of the consequences of transferring the American embassy to occupied Jerusalem, he explained: ‘We desire popular and peaceful resistance, and that is our choice against the occupation.’”

Op-ed in PA daily calls opening of US embassy a “war crime,” accuses Israel of carrying out “massacres, wars, terror” for 100 years against Palestinians, and claims Trump belongs in a “mental hospital”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 15, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily

      “[US President Donald] Trump’s country may be the strongest country in the world, but it is the poorest country in terms of justice, the richest in terms of injustice, and the lowest on the ladder of human values…
How can it be that Israel’s future will be full of shining promises of peace, as [US Presidential Advisor Jared] Kushner said while representing his President Trump at the inauguration of an American military base (sic., the US embassy) in occupied Jerusalem? Those who were present at the inauguration ceremony of Trump’s embassy in Jerusalem are partners in a war crime…
Trump believes in the ability of the leaders of Israel to put an end to the Palestinian existence, as his ancestors did to the Indians, but did they tell him that 100 years of massacres, wars, terror, expulsion, and organized attacks against the Palestinian people have only strengthened the Palestinians’ connection to their eternal homeland... This man needs rehabilitation in a mental hospital or to be hospitalized in an asylum, because if he remains free, the world will see how he enjoys and takes pleasure like no other while the world goes up in the flames of his sadism and naivety!”

Editorial in PA daily condemning US embassy move to Jerusalem demonizes the US as racist and violent 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 15, 2018
Excerpt of an editorial of the official PA daily

Headline: “Again the ugly American”
    “The US, in its various administrations, has never known a thing about qualities of chivalry or empathy, tolerance and human understanding. For a long time it has abused – and is still abusing – the poor and small peoples! […]
The reality is that it would be hard for us to tell all the stories of ‘the ugly American,’ which are full of blood, systematic violence, and a violence of abuse and bullying towards small peoples. This is currently being expressed in a most ugly fashion by its abuse of our people… It is going wild in its aggression towards [our people], which is being expressed by the American administration’s responsiveness to all of the Zionist activity’s demands. What is more, this administration – while transferring its embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem in contradiction to all the decisions of the international institutions, after it declared it the capital of the occupation state (!!) [parentheses in source] – has turned into a completely Zionist administration.”

US and Israel will drown in the ocean, because "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine" – animation by Abbas’ Fatah 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, May 14, 2018

Text and video posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “#Jerusalem. is an Arabic & Islamic city, what ever you claim Mr. #Trump !!”

The video shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump floating on a white raft in the middle of the sea, with a sign on which is written in Hebrew, Arabic, and English: "US Embassy," and Israeli and American flags. He is holding a paper on which is written in English: “Jerusalem capital of Israel,” and is heard saying “and Jerusalem is Israel's capital.” Immediately after his declaration, the raft breaks in two, and Trump drowns together with the Israeli flag. Netanyahu jumps into the water as well and disappears. The sign flips, and the reverse side of it reads in English and Arabic: "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine." A ship flying the UN flag and the flags of a number of countries including Ireland, Turkey, Lebanon, and other Arab countries then pulls up to stop by the raft. On the ship an elderly woman wearing a Palestinian flag and a younger woman dressed in black, meant to represent Ahed Tamimi, are seen waving.

This video was posted by Abbas’ Fatah Movement on Facebook on the day the US embassy opened in Jerusalem.
