Press Release on Israeli ambassador's comments
30 December, 2017
Press Release issued by the spokesperson of Hamas, Fawzi Barhoum:
The latest statements issued by the Israeli ambassador in the United States,
David Friedman in which he described the Palestinian rejection of Trump's
decision as being provocative and anti-Semitic, reflect the racist
background of this ambassador. These comments as well reflect his ignorance
of Palestinians' inherited right to their land, and utter disregard for
international law which deems Jerusalem an occupied city.
These comments made by the ambassador serve as a justification to cut off
relations between the Palestinian Authority and the American administration.
In addition, the time has come to end the American- sponsored Oslo
Accords which have failed the Palestinian people and led to more losses
of their rights while it maintained the Israeli existence on Palestinians
