Fatah "will come out with full force" against any Arab who sells land to Jews

Headline: “Fatah: The position of the [PA] president and the [Fatah] Movement’s leadership on Jerusalem is firm; we will not submit to the policy of determining facts on the ground”





“The Fatah Movement said… in a statement that it issued yesterday evening, Wednesday [Nov. 25, 2020]… that there are more than 360,000 Palestinians in East Jerusalem, which proves in a manner that leaves no room for doubt that Jerusalem is an Arab, Palestinian, and Islamic city par excellence…


It added that [US President Donald] Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital (see note below – Ed.) is not worth the ink with which the decision was written, as one who has no ownership gave [Jerusalem] to one who has no right.


The statement also said that Fatah will come out with full force against anyone who has sold their conscience and allows themselves to abandon their values, their religion, and their faith and to pursue money and the illegal transfer of their property to the settler associations that are active in Jerusalem…


[Fatah added] that regardless of which means of oppression are at its disposal, the occupation state will not be able to prevent Fatah from reaching this handful [of people] who have prioritized money over the homeland.”






US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump formally recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
