“Jerusalem, our eternal capital,
is more precious than you, your accounts, and your money”

The image shows US President Donald Trump, and refers together with the text to aid to the PA that Trump has threatened to cut if the PA does not return to negotiations with Israel, and to the US freezing two planned payments to UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) for more than $100 million in early January 2018.

On Jan. 25, 2018, US President Donald Trump held a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. During it Trump said that the US would stop providing financial aid to the PA if they did not return to negotiations with Israel. Trump also said: "We took Jerusalem off the table,” and when asked by a reporter whether Jerusalem being “off the table" meant that none of it would be part of a future Palestinian state, Trump refused to elaborate, responding: "Next question."
