Fatah youth leader: “We have a problem… with this fascist and racist Trump,” settlers can’t live in Jerusalem

Official PA TV program Topic of the Day, on a meeting between PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and leaders of Fatah Shabiba Youth Movement to plan resistance to US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan and the Bahrain workshop

Fatah Shabiba Youth Movement leader Raed Debiy: "I want to say that we have a problem, for instance in the US with this fascist and racist [US President Donald] Trump, and with central figures in his administration, including racist settler [US Ambassador to Israel David] Friedman, who has outdone the central figures in the extremist Israeli right-wing with his statements and policy… We are not defending [only] the Palestinian people and the cause of Palestine in this matter [of Jerusalem]. Prophet [Muhammad], may Allah's prayers be upon him, is a prophet for all Muslims and all of humanity, and lord Jesus too. He is not only Palestinian, but rather a prophet for all of humanity. Therefore, the Palestinians are struggling today so that Jerusalem will remain a place of coexistence, peace, and stability. They reject that the racists and settlers will live in [Jerusalem]. Accordingly, we are defending the honor of the Arab and Islamic nation, and also defending all of humanity."
