Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, has said that that Trump’s declaration to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel is “the greatest crime,” as we read in one report:
“Jerusalem is and always will be the capital of Palestine,” he told an emergency meeting of Muslim leaders in Turkey. He said the United States was giving away Jerusalem as if it were an American city.
“It crosses all the red lines,” he said.
Abbas said it was unacceptable for the United States to have a role in the Middle East peace process because it was biased in favor of Israel.
