Palestinians slam 'provocative' Brazil plan to move embassy to Jerusalem

RAMALLAH (PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES) (AFP) - A senior Palestinian official on Friday condemned Brazilian far-right President-elect Jair Bolsonaro's announcement that he would move his country's Israel embassy to Jerusalem.

"These are provocative and illegal steps that will only destabilise security and stability in the region," Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization's executive committee, told AFP.

The United States moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in May, sparking fury among Palestinians, who consider the Israeli-annexed eastern part of the city the capital of their future state.

"It is very unfortunate that Brazil has joined this negative alliance against international law," Ashrawi said.

On Thursday Bolsonaro tweeted that "as previously stated during our campaign, we intend to transfer the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem."

"Israel is a sovereign state and we shall duly respect that," he said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the move as "historic".

Only the United States and Guatemala currently have their embassies in Jerusalem, while other countries have theirs in Tel Aviv.

Israel occupied Arab east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the international community.

It sees the entire city as its capital.

The evil Fakestinian gangsters do only three things well — murdering innocent people, stealing tons of American and more taxpayer money. And shooting off their big mouths full of lies lies lies lies threats and more lies. The sooner they’re eliminated the better !

Next night out will be at a Brazilian steakhouse.

Their new Presidente thinks citizens should be allowed to have guns.

WINNING!

"These are provocative and illegal steps that will only destabilise security and stability in the region,"

1st, EVERYTHING is provocative to a Moslem.
2nd, Ain't nothing illegal about it. They are free to put their embassy anywhere Israel will allow them to.
3rd, Except for Israel proper, everything over there is destabilized. And that is because Moslems live there.

The Palestinians are crazy. Where another country moves their embassy is none of their damn business.

Crazy or cursed?

The nation is like a mighty lion;
When it is sleeping, no one dares wake it.
Whoever blesses Israel will be blessed,
And whoever curses Israel will be cursed.

Israel retook Arab-occupied east Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed it to rectify the illegal, though internationally acclaimed, ethnic cleansing of Jews by the racist Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. [/snip]
