Abbas: Jerusalem Is Not for Sale

Jerusalem is not for sale, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas declared on Thursday as he denounced US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the US embassy there.

In a speech before the UN General Assembly, Abbas called on Trump to rescind that decision, as well as his move to cut financial aid to the Palestinians, saying they undermined the two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

He also criticized Israel for promoting apartheid by passing in July the racist Jewish nation-state law, which he said, crossed all the red lines.

In his speech, Abbas also urged the UN-backed International Criminal Court to investigate alleged crimes by Israel.
