Abbas Warns 'No Peace or Stability' without Jerusalem as Palestinian Capital

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday warned that there could be "no peace or stability" in the Middle East until Jerusalem is recognised as the capital of a Palestinian state.

"Jerusalem is and will forever be the capital of the Palestinian state... There will be no peace, no stability without that," Abbas told an emergency meeting of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul. 

He slammed the recognition by US President Donald Trump of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as a "gift" to the "Zionist movement" as if he "were giving away an American city," adding that Washington no longer had any role to play in the Middle East peace process.

Good for you, now shake your bumbum and do something about your country... it's dying with you because of your inactivity and lack of motivation.

Look who is talking, a "President" whose 4 year term of office ended 8 years ago.
Palestinians could improve their standard of living by 100's of percent if their leaders finally decided to sit down and make peace with Israel.
