Fatah official says US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is “part of the American-Zionist plot to destroy the Arab states,” refers to Israel as “the Nazi enemy"

"[Q:] ‘How do you assess the Arab and international positions regarding the American decision on Jerusalem (i.e., to recognize it as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy to it)?’
[Fatah Central Committee Member Jamal Muhaisen:] ‘…The problem does not lie in the UN and in “Israel,” but rather in the Arab governments who until now are still dealing with the American-Israeli plot with words and not with actions, while the US is intensifying its steps against the central cause of the Arab nation and continuing to deepen the internal conflict in the Arab states in order to eliminate their capabilities, as part of the American-Zionist plot to destroy the Arab states so that “Israel” will remain the only state in the region. This is all in order to turn attention from the central conflict, which is the conflict with the Nazi enemy with tendencies of expansion that is occupying all of the lands of Palestine and much of the Arab lands in the Golan and Lebanon.’”

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.

Jamal Muhaisen also holds the following positions: Fatah Commissioner of Mobilization and Organization in the West Bank, and PLO Central Council member
