Text and video posted on the official Fatah Facebook page Posted text: “#Jerusalem. is an Arabic & Islamic city, what ever you claim Mr. #Trump !!”
The video shows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump floating on a white raft in the middle of the sea, with a sign on which is written in Hebrew, Arabic, and English: "US Embassy," and Israeli and American flags. He is holding a paper on which is written in English: “Jerusalem capital of Israel,” and is heard saying “and Jerusalem is Israel's capital.” Immediately after his declaration, the raft breaks in two, and Trump drowns together with the Israeli flag. Netanyahu jumps into the water as well and disappears. The sign flips, and the reverse side of it reads in English and Arabic: "Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine." A ship flying the UN flag and the flags of a number of countries including Ireland, Turkey, Lebanon, and other Arab countries then pulls up to stop by the raft. On the ship an elderly woman wearing a Palestinian flag and a younger woman dressed in black, meant to represent Ahed Tamimi, are seen waving.
This video was posted by Abbas’ Fatah Movement on Facebook on the day the US embassy opened 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 and instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump added that the final borders of Jerusalem will be determined during negotiations. The US embassy opened in Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, the anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence in 1948 according to the Gregorian calendar.
The young woman seen at the end of the video is Ahed Tamimi:
Ahed Tamimi – Teenage female Palestinian who attacked Israeli soldiers on Dec. 15, 2017, near the village of Nabi Saleh, north of Ramallah, together with her 21-year-old female cousin, Nour Tamimi, and her mother, Nariman. Ahed was later arrested and charged with several counts, including aggravated assault, hindering a soldier in the line of duty, incitement, and rock throwing. After her arrest, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas called her father Bassem Tamimi to praise her and her family's participation in "peaceful" protests. Ahed Tamimi has a history of assaulting Israeli soldiers.
