Fatah official: “We do not want to live in coexistence with the occupation in exchange for economic solutions… no money… can make Abbas forsake his position that Jerusalem is Arab”

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on planned Fatah activities against US President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan and the Bahrain workshop, hosting Head of the Fatah Commission of Mobilization and Organization's Political Bureau Munir Al-Jaghoub

Head of the Fatah Commission of Mobilization and Organization's Political Bureau Munir Al-Jaghoub: "Our message is that we do not want to live in coexistence with the occupation in exchange for economic solutions. We want to get rid of the occupation. We want to establish our independent Palestinian state – and its capital, exalted Jerusalem – in which there are no settlements or settlers, no occupation soldiers, no civil administration, and no occupation checkpoints. That is what the Palestinian people wants. I say that no money – not 50 billion [dollars] and not 100 billion [dollars] – can make [PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas forsake his position that Jerusalem is Arab and that Palestine and Jerusalem are not for sale."
