Today, Wednesday, the Palestinian presidency expressed its strong rejection and indignation at the statements of the Palestinian Authority President of the Unified List, Mansour Abbascalling for the Palestinian people to recognize the Jewish state.
The presidency said that these irresponsible statements are consistent with the calls of extremists in Israel to displace Palestinians, harm the status of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the history of the Palestinian people through the ages.
The presidency confirmed that Mansour Abbas, with such statements, represents only himself, and does not represent the Palestinian people at home and everywhere in the world, renewing its condemnation of such statements that contradict religion, history and Palestinian heritage that extends since the beginnings of history.
The presidency stressed that it is unfortunate that Mansour Abbas, instead of siding with the rights of his people, has become part of a trend that promotes the Zionist colonial project. Instead of condemning the settlements, killings and displacement committed by the occupation, and the plans of Israeli extremists to empty Palestinian lands, we see him today repeating what the movement is promoting. Zionism is an irrelevant lie.
The presidency said: “We also condemn his strange and suspicious silence about the settlers’ desecration of the courtyards of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, and his shameful silence during the battle over Jerusalem and its sanctities, and President Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to confront and drop the deal of the century, and prevent the sale of Jerusalem,” considering these statements a hateful literal translation of the law. Nationalism issued by the extremist and racist circles in Israel.
