Hamas says US Jerusalem embassy move would cross 'every red line'

Hamas says US Jerusalem embassy move would cross 'every red line'”

Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that President Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation with his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas on the expected United States recognition to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, Russian News Agency (TASS) reported on Wednesday.

In a separate statement Tuesday, Hamas called for Palestinians to "make Friday a day of rage against the occupation, rejecting moving the American embassy to Jerusalem and declaring it the capital of the Zionist entity".

The king "reiterated that such a unsafe step of relocation or recognition of Al-Quds as the capital of Israel would constitute a flagrant provocation of Muslims all over the world, as per its lofty status to them and as it is the cradle of Al-Aqsa Mosque, the first direction they were facing in their daily prayers", the official Saudi Press Agency added.

He was also reported in al-Ayyam and al-Hayat al-Jadida stating no decision would be able to alter Jerusalem's identity or forge its history. He said the move "will not serve peace or stability, but will fuel extremism and result to violence".

Al-Hayat al-Jadida added that Abbas called on Palestinians to seize "this historic moment" to rise over divisions and pursue national unity.

He also called for revoking the Oslo agreements, and for an urgent meeting between all factions to discuss unified reactions, and strategies.

Al-Hayat al-Jadida described Trump's decision as "the ultimate blow" delivered to the peace process and two-state solution. Arab League Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit said today an embassy move would be a "dangerous measure that would have repercussions" across the region.

Al-Ayyam highlighted a letter that was sent by the heads of churches in Jerusalem to Trump regarding the status of Jerusalem before he took his decision.

Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital would cause "the United States to lose the legal and moral ground and its mediating role, and turning it into a biased party to the conflict", the resolution said.
