Palestinian Official: Embassy Move a “Declaration of War”

16

A senior Palestinian official, Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub, is warning that moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Yerushalayim by the new Trump administration would be viewed as an act of war against the entire Muslim world.

“In our opinion, moving the embassy to Yerushalayim is a declaration of war against Muslims,” said Rajoub, one of the most senior men in Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party.

“It is not unthinkable that the United States will give the Jews the keys to the holy sites in Yerushalayim, sites that are sacred to both Christians and Muslims. If someone among you thinks there won’t be ramifications, he is making a grave error. We are talking about a risky step that won’t bring stability to the ground… It goes contrary to previous United Nations resolutions and the policy of the United States since 1967. We don’t plan on waving a white flag [of surrender in front of PM Netanyahu or Trump].”

  1. hey, mr rajoub….i thought the very existence of israel is an “act of war against the entire muslim world”. so, if the embassy is moved to jerusalem, it would just give you an excuse to continue terrorizing israel as you have been doing since 1948. everyone sees your phoniness!

  2. So, you are declaring war against the United States? The country that’s sending you tens of millions of dollars a year?

    Smart move…

  3. Why would a building called US EMBASSYin the new areas of Jerusalem aka Western Jerusalem even cause a blink of eye? Instead of American Consulate on Agron St there will be an Embassy.

    Be aware once again this is the Arab sabotage pathway.

  4. I repeat…

    The Australian Government’s statement on Monday 2nd January 2017 that they would not relocate their embassy to Jerusalem was correct.

    “Zion shall be redeemed with judgment, and her converts with righteousness.”

    – Isaiah 1:27

  5. The Arabs can’t wait long enough to declare war on the USA.
    After all, Japan and Germany did, and the US rebuilt them into wealthy industrial nations. The misunderstanding is, however, that BEFORE those countries started their wars, they were already educated and had something going for them, while the Arabs have nothing but cavemen living off oil.

  6. Its time the good guys got insulted!!! and not be put on the defensive by the most outrageous
    demands, Then again that Chutzpah and Sheker will abound is a sign of Moschiach – and we certainly
    see enough of that!

  7. Jewish hope or just jewish cavalier pride?

    The embassy of the USA is not the Western Wall and it is not the soul of Israel.

    Why does it need to go to Jerusalem? We are making a grave error and the cost and ignorance will share in very poor mention and hope.

    Careless and very abrupt move. This idiot in office is so bad that war is so likely in this world in an era where the future of any human interest is a man who has no regard for human value, human decency and human voice.

    This is a terrible faith that has been chosen by the GOP. We are not safe and neither is Israel. The terror to consider is anything from Trump D.C. to Foreign affairs.

    Traditional Jewish interest? Shun that idea. A total sham.

    Next year is anything we can expect. There is no thought that strong war peace is good war valued hope.

    I can not believe this era. I can not believe any thought can be sane in this new world.

    Where are any faithful minds today? They voted Trump. Irate is all that we will see.

    Terrifying and horrible.

    • You sound like a brainwashed liberal, but I will give you the benefit of the doubt.
      Why does the embassy need to go to Jerusalem? Simply to show the palestinians that we gave them too many chances to try to achieve peace, yet they refuse to even come to the negotiating table. They are too busy running from the UN to the International Criminal Court creating anti-Israel resolutions and inciting their youth to hate and attack the jew. It’s time to show them that no, there will be no palestinian state with a capital in Jerusalem. I’ts time we show them that, we have played this game for too long, and now they just lost the US. The US now stands completely behind Israel, and not behind the palestinians.
      Are you really convinced that Hillary Clinton, or Bernie Sanders would be so much better for Israel? Really?
      We shouldn’t put too much trust in any political leader, but he really looks like the kind of president for Israel.
      Can you maybe list me a few reasons why you think President Trump is so horrifying for Israel?

  8. If the President is determined to wipe terrorism off the map,what better way than to stand up to these savage threats by the Palestinians. Is we dare them, then the terrorists around the world will stand back and know that we are strong and unafraid of threats. Be afraid,Iran.
