Trump’s Jerusalem Decision: ‘Biggest Mistake of his Life’ : Palestinian Officials

Published

on

How has the world reacted to Trump’s Jerusalem Decision? Condemning US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the top Palestinian officials have called Donald Trump’s Jerusalem Decision as his ‘biggest mistake of his life’ which would ignite the extremists to call for holy war.

“These procedures do also help in the extremist organizations to wage a religious war that would harm the entire region, which is going through critical moments and would lead us into wars that will never end, which we have warned about and always urged to fight against,” Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in a televised address following the US announcement.

Impact of Trump’s Jerusalem Decision

“President Trump just destroyed any possibility of a two-state (solution),” Erekat, who is also the Palestinian chief negotiator, said in a statement.

“President Trump tonight made the biggest mistake of his life,” Erekat told CNN’s, Christiane Amanpour. “Instead of encouraging the parties to sit together, the parties to put all core issues including Jerusalem on the table and negotiate in good faith, he dictates.”
Israeli officials have worked to demolish a two-state solution, he said.

According to Trump administration, the landmark step is the “recognition of reality” that Jerusalem has long been the seat of the Israeli government. In announcing the move, Trump emphasized that the decision would have zero impact on the boundaries of future Israeli and Palestinian states as negotiated under a final status agreement.

Palestinian factions called for three “days of rage” in protest, and the US State Department has issued a travel warning for the West Bank and Jerusalem’s Old City protesting Trump’s Jerusalem Decision. The UN Security Council will discuss the development on Friday.

The Israeli government praised Trump’s Jerusalem Decision, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on other nations to follow Trump’s lead.

“Jerusalem has been the capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years,” Netanyahu said. He praised Trump and called the move an “important step towards peace, for there is no peace that doesn’t include Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.”

Netanyahu vowed there would be no change with regard to the city’s many holy sites.
“Israel will always ensure freedom of worship for Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike,” he said. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin hailed Trump’s Jerusalem Decision as a “beautiful gift.”
