Hamas on Trump’s speech in Jerusalem

Press Statement


The spokesperson of the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum has stated the following:

The American president’s speech in Jerusalem is racist par excellence, and aims to lay the foundations for a new Israeli Apartheid regime and to promote hatred against the Palestinian people. Trump’s speech about alleged historical ties between Jews and Jerusalem is a lie and contradicts the UNESCO and ISCWA’s resolutions that both confirmed Palestinians right in Jerusalem and denied any relation between Jews and the holy city.

This biased American policy encourages the Israeli Occupation to further commit crimes and violations against the Palestinian people and its holy shrines, and constitutes danger for our people’s national rights.

This should be confronted by unity around a national strategy in which everyone can defend Palestinians’ rights. It should be crystal clear that relying on the American administration to achieve justice for Palestinian people is a delusional decision.
