Fatah emphasizes its opposition to unpublished Trump peace plan

Headline: “Greenblatt accuses the Fatah Movement of destroying ‘the deal of the century’”

“US President [Donald Trump’s] Envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt accused the Fatah Movement, led by [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas, of destroying the chances of coexistence yesterday [June 19, 2019], in a hint at the American ‘deal of the century’ whose goal is to strengthen the occupation (sic., Greenblatt’s tweet did not reference ‘the deal of the century’ – Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan).

Greenblatt tweeted: ‘Fatah spoils another opportunity for co-existence & what could/should be the norm. Peace can't be built on current foundation maintained by Fatah. In order to achieve peace, many issues must be addressed, [including this]. Co-existence should be encouraged’ (Greenblatt’s tweet linked to an article on the PA punishing the Deir Qaddis Village Council head after Jews attended his son’s wedding –Ed.).

It should be noted that Fatah has time and again emphasized its opposition to ‘the deal of the century,’ which US President Donald Trump is attempting to force on the Palestinian people to strengthen the occupation in the Palestinian territories.”

The article refers to a tweet (see screenshot right, original source has since been deleted) by US Envoy Jason Greenblatt in which he linked to an article about the PA punishing the Deir Qaddis Village Council head after Jews attended his son’s wedding. Greenblatt tweeted: “Fatah spoils another opportunity for co-existence & what could/should be the norm. Peace can't be built on current foundation maintained by Fatah. In order to achieve peace, many issues must be addressed, including this. Co-existence should be encouraged.”
