Top PA official threatens: Whoever accepts Trump's plan “will pay the price of treason”

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "Trump and those who are with him… will reach the dustbin of history! … Palestine will remain Palestine, regardless of how long it takes... This land – by Allah’s decree, will spit out its refuse, and no oppressor will last long in it… Allah willing… this land will return to its owners... All of this aggression, arrogance, and tyranny – their result will be a tragedy befalling them, by the force of Supreme Allah... We will not accept the deal of shame, we will not accept the Trump deal, we will not accept the so-called deal of the century, or slap of the century‎, or shame of the century, or filth of the century… The Arabs and Muslims will not accept it… Whoever accepts it – he will pay a heavy price for it. Yes, he will pay the price for accepting it. He will pay the price of treason. [Accepting] this deal is the way to treason."

Al-Habbash gave this sermon a few days before US President Trump revealed his Middle East peace plan – “the deal of the century” - together with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on Jan. 28, 2020.
