Official PA radio station The Voice of Palestine, A New Day, special broadcast on US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, interview with Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki: “We are standing before this ignoramus (i.e., US President Donald Trump), who has attempted to make himself like [former British Foreign Secretary Arthur] Balfour of 2017 by giving a national home to the Jews in Palestine. He came to place himself over something that does not belong to him, as if it were a business deal. Like he gave his daughter Ivanka to [Jared] Kushner, he thinks he can give Jerusalem to Israel. In other words, a business deal…
I think that now he is not only our enemy, but also his own enemy, the enemy of the international community, the enemy of Europe, of Turkey, and of the Arabs who [just] yesterday were his pawns…
[Jerusalem] is [the place of] lord Muhammad’s Night Journey, [and the place of] Jesus’ resurrection. It is the earth’s gate to Heaven. This fool will not be able to change anything. Therefore, now the options are open and no one will blame us…
I think that he has opened fire on himself and his group, which is Zionist and currently controls the White House. Therefore, I think that we are exempt from the obligations and from hanging hopes on the illusion of peace…
Everyone needs to put a picture of Trump with a donkey on his head – let them burn him and hang him. We need to see [a picture of] Trump on every street and step on it…
An injustice is being done to the American people with the rich adolescent [Trump] who has lost his morals and lost this balance. The American people is pure, it has the revolution of George Washington and his laws, but this crazy man [Trump] is a [brand] name dealer, [his name] is a business deal…
Now, I declare today that Trump has joined terror. Terror is the highest form of occupation known to man (sic., generally “occupation” and “terror” are reversed in this sentence). This terrorist occupation – currently the American administration is terrorist, it has joined the Likud (i.e., Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s party). Therefore, the extremists in Israel and Trump are two sides of the same coin.”

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations.
