Fatah Bethlehem branch Facebook page posts video of Palestinians shouting: “The US – the head of the snake; The US – a terror state”

Video posted on the Facebook page of the Fatah Movement – Bethlehem Branch

The video shows a group of protesters in Bethlehem demonstrating against US President Donald Trump’s official announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and transferring the US embassy to Jerusalem. The protesters are trampling on pictures of Trump and chanting.

Protesters: “The US – as usual
The US – the head of the snake;
The US – a terror state;
And we are not afraid of it;
(The next two lines are in English –Ed.)
No good morning, no good night;
O America, we will fight;
The US – as usual;
The US – the head of the snake;
The US – a terror state, and we are not afraid of it;
Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem”

The protesters are seen stepping on pictures of US President Donald Trump as the song “I am a son of Jerusalem, and I am from here” is played.

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump gave a speech formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and stating that he had instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump concluded by stating that the US is still fully committed to the peace process in the Middle East. Following his speech, Trump signed the waiver to delay the transfer of the embassy, and apparently will continue to do so until preparations for the transfer have been completed.
