‘The Last Bullet in the Peace Process’–Abbas Urges Trump not to Move US Embassy to Jerusalem

In addition to writing to Trump, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas also reportedly has written letters to the leaders of Russia, China, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the Arab League asking them to do what they can to stop the newly-elected president of the the US from moving the embassy.

Secretary of State John Kerry has waded into the controversy as well, warning that if the embassy is moved, “you’d have an explosion–an absolute explosion in the region, not just in the West Bank and perhaps even Israel itself, but throughout the region.”

A typically un-hinged-from-reality comment on the matter has come from an Israeli official. Ron Dermer, the ambassador to the US, said the embassy “move would be a great step forward to peace,” and he claims also that it would work to undo the “delegitimization of Israel.”

There are also now reports of worries that moving the embassy could increase security threats to State Department personnel in other countries besides Israel–but apparently this doesn’t concern Florida Sen. (and devoted Zionist) Marco Rubio.

“Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish state of Israel, and that’s where America’s embassy belongs,” says Rubio. “It’s time for Congress and the president-elect to eliminate the loophole that has allowed presidents in both parties to ignore U.S. law and delay our embassy’s rightful relocation to Jerusalem for over two decades.”

Rubio is referring to the “Jerusalem Embassy Act,” approved by Congress in 1995, which calls for the moving of the US embassy to Jerusalem but which also allows for a presidential waiver if it is deemed the move would harm US security interests. Every president from the time the law was passed up until today has exercised the waiver.

The PLO response to the move–at least as stated in the above video–would be a withdrawal of its recognition of Israel. There is also a warning that the Palestinian Authority could dissolve itself, effectively rendering Israel responsible for administering what are now referred to as the “Palestinian territories.” This would leave the Jewish state with the choice of either annexing the territories and giving Palestinians living within them the right to vote in Israeli elections–or, alternately, Israel could openly rule over a subject people who have no rights as citizens. This would basically remove the fig leaf cover and expose Israel once and for all as an apartheid state. Should it choose this latter course of action, doubtless it would become grist for the mill for a conference set to take place in Ireland and which I posted an article about four days ago.

The three-day conference is to be entitled “International Law & the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Exceptionalism, and Responsibility,” and as I reported, one of the questions its participants will examine is whether Israel has a legal right to exist under international law.

If Dermer and other Israeli officials are worried about the “delegitimization” they are experiencing now, doubtless the fires of illicitness will get hotter if the Palestinian Authority “hands the keys to the territories” back to Israel. Whether the PA will actually go through with that remains to be seen, however. And my own personal view is that it is something they probably should have done a long time ago.

However, if today’s resignation of a Palestinian mayor inside of Israel is any indication, we could perhaps seem something like that come to pass.

  1. No political aware person take Mahmoud Abbas seriously. He is double agent to his last bone. Even though his mandate as PA president expired in January 2009 – he is kept in that position by the US, EU and Israel as a counter-weight to duly elected Hamas.

    Pope Francis and Shimon Peres have project Abbas as a ‘Peacemaker’ for his services to the Zionist cause.

    In May 2015, the kosher pope Francis welcomed PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas at the Vatican. After much hugging and kissing – Francis called Abbas “an angel of peace” for helping Israelis to grab more Palestinian land in the West Bank and the occupied East Jerusalem – and helping Israel Occupation Force (IOF) to route out Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Fatah-ruled West Bank.

    Being ‘poodles of Zionism’, I bet Francis and Abbas had not discussed the reason why the Christian population in the so-called ‘Holy Land’ has shrunk from 13% to 2% since the European Jews occupied Palestine in 1948.

    Argentinian Jorge Bergoglio, aka His Holiness Pope Francis has a big bag of dirty laundry as cardinal in Buenos Aires. He supported Argentina military junta by spying on his Catholic sheep. He also made a secret visit to the Zionist entity. As a Jesuit, his love for the Zionism is eternal. Last year, Francis claimed that every Christian carry a Jew inside his soul.

    Cardinal Bergoglio erected a memorial to the victims of Holocaust and AMIA bombing at the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Chapel, the main Roman Catholic Church in Argentina’s capital.

    Pope Francis being Jesus’ Viceroy on Earth – knows more about people than I can. Last year, during his visit to the Zionist entity and the West Bank, Francis called both Israeli president Shimon Peres and Mahmoud Abbas “men of peace”.

    Ironically, Israeli-born British writer, author and musician Gilad Atzmon wrote on September 25, 2008: “Truth must be said, I do admire fierce President Ahmadinejad almost as much as I despise war criminal Shimon Peres.”

    • You are right, of course, Rhemat, Abbas has been very much a useful puppet for the Israelis who has no legitimacy as “president,” since his term expired in 2009. Still every now and then I find it useful to quote him, for he does occasionally say something worthwhile.

  3. An excellent report on Jerusalem and beyond — thank you! (The text of the Ma’an report of Qalansawe Mayor Abd al-Basit Mansour’s resignation provides clear evidence that the terroristic “price tag” attacks by illegal-settler thugs in Occupied Palestine are mirrored by the official terrorism waged on second-/third-class Palestinian-Arab “citizens” of the Zioentity so-called Israel. The entire Zionist colonial enterprise must be erased and never allowed to regenerate…faster, please, for the sake of the Palestinian children, women and men [and in memory of the millions of those fallen] suffering interminably under Zionism’s vicious, vindictive ways of utmost evil.)

    I’m sure that all resisters of militant/political Zionism’s chokehold on the world are waiting with anticipation for the convening and conclusions of the conferences about to take place in France and Ireland. Might there be glimmers of hope that the long-awaited “tipping point” is at hand?

    Viva Palestine! Palestine Is Still The Issue!

    • I think you are right, Robert, the safest thing for the world right now would be to find some way of peacefully dismantling the Jewish state

      • Perhaps a petition should be launched asking Pope Francis to start a prayer vigil to make your dream come true, Richard: dismantling the Jewish state peacefully. Let my favorite Pope perform this miracle: convince the parasite colony to abandon the host it is devouring… That would also be forgetting that the central nervous system of the beast is not actually in Israel but in the UK and the US.
