Abbas` Fatah: Trump is Hitler - no difference
- Fatah: Trump is "an irrelevant clown"
- Fatah: "Jerusalem is the most sacred city to Muslims and Christians"
Fatah also tweeted the following poster, stating that "Trump is an irrelevant clown":
The image shows a sign with a photo of US President Donald Trump and a red stamp reading "Veto!" over his mouth.
A third insult tweeted by Fatah shows a sign held during a procession with a picture of Jerusalem showing the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the foreground and the Dome of the Rock in the background, and below it a picture of Trump holding the signed memorandum recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital as US Vice President Mike Pence stands in the background. Shoes are stuck to the poster around the faces of Trump and Pence as well as on the memorandum. In Arab culture throwing shoes at someone is a sign of great disrespect.
Yesterday, Palestinian Media Watch reported that Mahmoud Abbas' senior advisor said that Trump's words were worth less than the urine of a boy in Jerusalem.
US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations. The US embassy was transferred from Tel Aviv and opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, the anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence in 1948 according to the Gregorian calendar.
