Envoy: Palestinians to Foil Trump’s ‘Deal of Century’ Plot

Palestinian Ambassador to Tehran Salah Zawawi underlined full opposition to the so-called 'Deal of the Century' plan sponsored by US President Donald Trump, saying that the Palestinians will thwart the plot.

“The plan is rejected by us 100% and we dismiss it strongly,” Zawawi told FNA on Tuesday.

He warned that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump have united against Palestine, expressing confidence that the Palestinian nation will defeat them.

Zawawi said that the Trump-proposed plot against the Palestinians resembles the behavior Washington showed towards the native Americans.

“Our problem with the Zionist enemy is not the borders [as the entire occupied regions belong to the Palestinians] but it is the regime’s existence, and we are certain that the Zionist regime will be annihilated,” he stressed.

Defying international outcry, Trump last Tuesday announced the general provisions of the plan at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side.

The scheme — which all Palestinian groups have unanimously rejected — largely meets Israel’s demands in the decades-old conflict, while creating a Palestinian state with limited control over its own security and borders.

It enshrines Jerusalem al-Quds as “Israel’s undivided capital” and allows the regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley, among other controversial terms.

Palestinian leaders, who severed all ties with Washington in late 2017 after Trump recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime, immediately rejected the plan, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying it “belongs to the dustbin of history.”

Thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip poured out onto the street in immediate condemnation of the plan.

Muslims all across the world have also expressed solidarity with the Palestinian cause and denounced the Trump’s proposed plan.
