Palestinian girl to "cursed Trump": "We won’t agree to our Jerusalem being defiled"

“To Trump and every hate-ridden Zionist claiming a right to Palestine: Jerusalem is ours… We won’t agree to our Jerusalem being defiled”

Abbas’ Fatah Movement published this young girl’s message to US President Trump not to “defile” Jerusalem because it’s “ours.” The young girl has clearly absorbed the constant messaging by the Palestinian Authority, which rejects Jews/Israelis any rights to Jerusalem and denies that Jews had a history in Jerusalem. In the girl’s words, Jerusalem “was, is, and will remain our capital over the years, and we will not agree to our Jerusalem being defiled”: 

Ru’a Tamimi: "My message to cursed Trump: O Trump, how do you belittle our people’s rights? Have you forgotten that we are ‘the people of giants’? Have you forgotten that we are the children of Yasser [Arafat] and [Ahmed] Yassin? But to Trump and every hate-ridden Zionist claiming he has a right to Palestine, I say: Jerusalem is ours – it was, is, and will remain our capital over the years, and we will not agree to our Jerusalem being defiled. Allah willing, it will return to us, even if it takes time.”

Host: "Well done, my darling! Ru’a, you are not an ordinary girl, you know? You are a miracle! It is an honor for me, and for Ajyal [radio], that you are with us today."

The girl repeated the PA hate speech that Jews/Israelis (and now apparently also Americans) “defile” Jerusalem and its holy sites, which Palestinian Media Watch had documented numerous times.
She also implied to Trump that she and other young Palestinians are uncompromising and do not shy away from using violence as they “are the children” of former PA Chairman Arafat - who directed many years of PLO, Fatah and PA terror, and of Ahmed Yassin, the founder of the terror organization Hamas. The girl repeated another PA message that has often been stressed to children – that it is only a matter of time before Jerusalem – and the entire State of Israel – "return" to Palestinians.

In addition, the girl also recited a poem that includes yet another PA message - one which is clear child abuse - as it teaches that Palestinian children are destined to die as “Martyrs” for “Palestine” – a message that even the mother of the boy in the poem condones.

The girl’s message to Trump is completely in line with the PA’s anti-US messages, which have intensified during Trump’s tenure following US decisions to recognize the legitimacy of Israel's sovereignty over Jerusalem and the legality of Israel's settlements in the West Bank. On Dec. 6, 2017, Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, adding that the final borders will be determined during negotiations. The US embassy was transferred from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on May 14, 2018, the anniversary of Israel's declaration of independence in 1948. On Nov. 18, 2019, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the US administration’s new position on Israeli settlements in the West Bank, stating that: "After carefully studying all sides of the legal debate... the establishment of Israeli civilian settlements in the West Bank is not, per se, inconsistent with international law."

The young Palestinian girl is Ru'a Tamimi from the village of Nabi Saleh. Other members of her clan include Ahlam Tamimi, who planned and the led the suicide bomber to the Sbarro Pizza shop attack, and Ahed Tamimi who recently spent time in an Israeli jail for assaulting a solder and inciting terror.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah and former chairman of the PLO and PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.

Ahmed Yassin - Founder and former head of the terror organization Hamas. The Hamas movement is responsible for numerous terror attacks and the murder of hundreds of Israeli civilians. Yassin was killed by Israel in 2004.
