YASSER OKBI/MAARIV – December 5, 2017
The Palestinian factions announced three days of rage from Wednesday to Friday in protest of US President Donald Trump’s announcement to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to transfer the American embassy from Tel Aviv.
The Palestinian factions called President Trump’s policy “political blackmail, which would destroy his ability to achieve regional or colonialist achievements in the region.”
In a joint statement, the Palestinian “national and Islamic forces” announced three days of rage that would begin Wednesday and end on Friday. “We call on all our people in Israel and around the world to gather in city centers and Israeli embassies and consulates, with the aim of bringing about general popular anger,” the statement said.
The statement added that “a huge protest should be launched in order to reject out of hand the attempts of the US administration to transfer the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem or recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel.
