Upon declaring Jerusalem as Israel’s new capital to which he would shift US embassy from Tel Aviv, Zionist Trump has openly declared that USA has always stood by Israel. Having defeated the powerful insider of White House Mrs. Clinton, Trump thinks he can be increasingly dictatorial and arrogant on behalf of Israel, and he has been trying to arm-twist the PLO and its president Abbas directing him to respect Israel and follow the instructions of its criminal PM Netanyahu.
Apparently Israel now directly controls Trump and US policies and would decide all matters concerning Palestine and other Arab nations only on the advice of Israeli leaders.
Last week, the USA decided to cut more than half of its funding to the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) – an aid agency that has been the lifeline to the more than five million registered Palestinian refugees in the occupied territories, as well as Lebanon, Jordan and Syria.
In Davos, Trump also accused the Palestinian leadership of “disrespecting” the US by refusing to meet Vice President Mike Pence during his visit to Israel and the region earlier this week. During his speech in Jerusalem last week, Pence promised the American embassy would be relocated by the end of next year. “We took Jerusalem off the table, so we don’t have to talk about it anymore,” Trump said. “We’ll see what happens with the peace process, but respect has to be shown to the US, or we’re just not going any further.”
Israel has also been the key recipient of aid from USA and European nations and gets terror goods from NATO pool. In fact, the major chunk of aid packages of USA goes to Israel while Palestine and other nations get a meager support on the condition that the beneficiary nation must buy terror goods from the USA by using the aid money. .
Trump says the Palestinians do not respect USA and Israel. Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi responded by saying, “not meeting your oppressor is not a sign of disrespect, it is a sign of self-respect”.
The Palestinian leadership has rebuked threats by dictatorial and Zionist US President Trump to withhold aid if it refuses to negotiate with Israel. Spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, Nabil Abu Rudeineh said in a press conference: “This policy of threats … will not work with the Palestinian people,”.
Like street rouge, Trump asserted: “We give them hundreds of millions of dollars in aid and support, tremendous numbers, numbers that nobody understands. That money is on the table, and that money is not going to them unless they sit down and negotiate peace,” he said. Trump did not specify which aid money he was referring to. Since 2008, the US has donated about $400m annually in economic aid to the Palestinian Authority – the governmental body that governs the Israeli-occupied West Bank.
Trump has very clearly stated that Israel would decide the matter of Jerusalem and Palestine and the PLO must obey Israeli leaders. Israel has been made a military power by offering it high precision technology for making terror goods, illegally helping it with the WMD with which Zionist regime threatens Palestine and Arab nation.
It is on records that Israel had long back announced that their missiles target entre USA and Europe regions. In case Israel is threatened with extinction it would destroy entire world, including USA.
After having lost the presidency the Democrats have also pushed erratic Trump to go all-out for Zionism and its criminal regime.
Condemnation against US cuts to UN aid agency
US declaration on Jerusalem dealt a blow to the Palestinian leadership, which for more than two decades has attempted to establish a Palestinian state on the territories occupied by Israel in 1967, consisting of the West Bank and Gaza, with East Jerusalem as its capital.
“If Jerusalem is off the negotiating table, so is the USA.” that is how Palestinians view Trump’s trumpet.
The developments come following a controversial decision by the US on December 6 to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The USA also vowed to move its embassy from the commercial capital, Tel Aviv, to Jerusalem.
Trump’s Jerusalem decision sparked anger across Palestine and the wider Arab and Muslim world and earned the US angry rebuke from the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who vowed not to receive Pence in the Palestinian territories.
Separately, a group of more than 20 celebrities and public figures – including actors Hugh Grant and Viggo Mortensen – condemned Trump’s decision to cut funding to UNRWA.
The Hoping Foundation, a UK-based group that supports Palestinian children, released a joint statement expressing “horror” over the aid cuts.
The real target of this lethal attack is the Palestinian people themselves. It has been launched with the clear aim of dismantling their rights, by dismantling the institution that is charged with protecting them
2018 opens with President Trump’s new attempt to force Palestinians to accept this grossly unfair ‘deal’, by threatening and endangering the international agency responsible for their basic needs as refugees. “It is repellent to us that such tactics are being used in the 21st century, in direct contradiction of international law, and to human decency.” Actresses Emma Thompson and Olivia Wilde, as well as British author Hanif Kureishi, were also among the signatories.
Observation: Wake up call for Islamic world!
Palestinians, besieged by terror blockades of Israel and Egypt as such have status has been reduced to that of a beggar or slave class.
Israel keeps threatens Palestine with holocaust and has been killing Palestinians and confiscating their lands for illegal construction purposes. . That USA has threatened to end aid to Palestine is simply ridiculous. It is as bad as genocides. .
Jerusalem cannot be confiscated by US-Israeli duo for illegal proliferation of Jewish settlements. The issue of Jerusalem is a holy issue – it is the key to war and peace in the region. It cannot be bought or sold with the entire world’s money
The nations occupying alien nations always try to evolve strategies to silence the “subjects” and make them do exactly what is asked of them.
Brutality is their language. Terror attack is their culture. Occupational crimes are their civilization.
In order to silence the Palestinians, Trump has initiated economic terrorism by way of withdrawing aid to UN aid agency for Palestine refugees and aid to Palestine. Trump threatened to withhold funds after a meeting with Netanyahu at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Since Israel is considered as a part of US system, Trump is openly misbehaving with the Palestinians on behalf of Israel. In fact trump is using the anti-Islam tone against Muslim countries starting with Pakistan.
All these years, USA and Israel jointly followed the Palestinians and world at large by giving some money and terror goods to Palestine to keep them under US control so that it could advance its business with Muslim nations, Turley and Arab world. USA has used both Pakistan and Arab world as a balancing force to keep Palestinian leaders under check.
Time has come for the Islamic world to support Palestine economically and technologically. Arab world, Turkey and other wealthy Muslim nations should contribute liberally t the welfare projects of Palestine state which is fast becoming a full UN member to regain full sovereignty from the fascist US-Israeli duo.
In fact, Islamic world should strive for self reliance without having to seek conditional aid from USA which uses the weak nations to promote its capitalist and imperialist goals.
USA does not offer aid for free and it aids Israel significantly in order to continue to take its help for global state operations. .
Palestine seeks global recognition of East Jerusalem as capital of Palestine!
Islamic unity against US-Israeli civilizational war in the form of terror wars on Islam is a must. Turkey comprehends the dangers emanating from USA and Israel but Saudi Arabia led Arab nations still consider USA as their lords and maintain secret deals with Israel against Islam and Muslims.
