US embassy move checkmates peace
Cartoon printed in the official PA daily

Text on cartoon: “Transferring the embassy”

The cartoon shows a hand moving a black rook with “US” written on it across a chess board to checkmate a chess piece in the shape of a white dove, which has fallen over. The cartoon refers to US President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, symbolized by the rook’s move, and threatens that such a move would end the peace process, symbolized by the fallen dove.
