Abbas warns against moving U.S. embassy to Jerusalem
Arutz Sheva ^ | 4/1/17 | Elad Benari

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday warned of “serious implications” if U.S. President-elect Donald Trump follows through with his election promise to move the American embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

"Moving the embassy will have serious consequences not only for the Palestinian people, but also for the legitimacy of the entire international struggle against the occupation," he told a visiting delegation from the leftist Meretz party, according to Army Radio.

At the same time, Abbas said he does not believe that Trump would actually follow through with the move.

"We are acting with patience and restraint in the face of President-elect Trump's statements," a source at the meeting quoted Abbas as saying in a conversation with Haaretz.

"We understand that things that are said during a campaign do not necessarily reflect the reality of his term. I do not believe that he will move the embassy to Jerusalem. Even he understands that this is a step with irreversible and broad significance beyond the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

"Even he understands that this is a step with irreversible and broad significance beyond the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

All the more reason to do it.

“Moving the embassy will have serious consequences not only for the Palestinian people, but also for the legitimacy of the entire international struggle against the occupation,”

These blustery arab morons haven’t ever had to negotiate before. They just make threats and demands.

They are about to face someone who demands to heavily benefit from what he might do for you. The Pali just demanded the embassy not move. Somewhere, Trump just smiled and thought, ‘how badly do you want that outcome, and what will you give me in return”.

More hot air wont suffice.

Who cares what the Arabs think. Did they ask permission when they originally conquered the Holy Land? Did they ask how the US or France thought about them paying terrorists and funding Hamas (though Obama was onboard with that)? Did they seek permission to ride roughshod over the entire north African populations? Did Constantinople ask the Turks to conquer it?

Lots of the usual suspects still haven’t figured out that Trump doesn’t play by their old rules.

Soviet documents ‘show Abbas was KGB agent’; Fatah decries ‘smear campaign’

Israeli researchers: Notes from USSR archivist who defected indicate PA president was working for Soviets in Damascus in 1980s while Putin’s current Mideast envoy was stationed there

September 7, 2016.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was a Soviet spy in Damascus in the 1980s, Israel’s Channel 1 television reported Wednesday, citing information it said was included in an archive smuggled out of the USSR.

According to Channel 1’s foreign news editor Oren Nahari, the famed Mitrokhin archive, kept by KGB defector Vasily Mitrokhin, revealed that Abbas was a Soviet mole in Damascus in 1983.

The documents — obtained by Israeli researchers Isabella Ginor and Gideon Remez — purportedly show that Abbas, code-named Krotov (mole), was involved with the Soviets while Mikhail Bogdanov, today Vladimir Putin’s envoy to the Middle East. was stationed in Damascus.

Bogdanov was caught in a diplomatic tussle earlier this week after trying to broker a summit between Abbas and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Moscow, who both claimed a willingness to meet while decrying the other for allegedly refusing. ..."

THAT SOUNDS LIKE A THREAT....

...after Trump fires the huge Islamist faction at the State Department & Pentagon, the PA won’t be so vocal.

His claim this would have “..irreversible and broad significance beyond the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” seems to me to be a threat of violence.

Did Abbass ever get Yassir’s wife to cough up the billions that they scammed off of the UN?

From a previous thread

The Trump official reported replied that “there is no Palestine, and Jerusalem is not your capital.

If you stop the incitement to terror, put in place full economic transparency, stop acting unilaterally at UN bodies and accept a US embassy in west Jerusalem,

we (the US) would consider a US diplomatic mission in Ramallah and call upon the Israelis to enter into serious negotiations with you on a long-term relationship.”
