Fatah Official Sultan Abu Al-Einein: Transfer of U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Will Lead to Renewed Bloodshed

Sultan Abu Al-Einein of the Fatah Central Committee warned that any "act of stupidity" by the new U.S. administration would "ignite the Palestinian territories.” In an interview with the Egypt-based Alghad TV on January 1, Abu Al-Einein said that moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem would lead to renewal of bloodshed, for which the U.S. and Israel would bear responsibility.


Sultan Abu Al-Einein: We must prepare for a new confrontation with the new US administration, which has declared, clearly and audaciously, that Israel and its settlements are legitimate and legal, and has sent a delegation in order to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. I believe that any American act of stupidity will ignite the Palestinian territories, and that the US administration, along with the Israeli arrogance in continuing its settlement activity, will bear responsibility for the return of the bloodshed in the Palestinian territories.
