Hundreds of Palestinians have once again expressed their complete rejection of the so-called “Deal of the Century” proposed by US President Donald Trump, demanding Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to stand firm against what they branded as the “Deal of Disgrace.”
According to Press TV, Palestinians from all walks of life marched through the streets of Ramallah, a major city in the occupied West Bank, on Monday, voicing their support of the Palestinian leadership and stressing that the US so-called deal would defiantly fall apart.
The so-called deal, a backchannel plan to allegedly reach a peace settlement between Zionist regime and the Palestinians, was proposed by the US administration late last year. Although the plan has not been released, leaks show it will consist of the same tried and failed ideas.
Palestinians believe that the deal suggests building their own al-Quds from areas surrounding the existing city and forget about the historic place. They also believe that the US-drafted plan calls for keeping borders and security under Israeli control, while it keeps Israeli settlements’ final borders to be discussed in later negotiations.
Earlier this month, Secretary General of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said that Trump’s much touted “the Deal of the Century” aimed to terminate the Palestinian cause.
Nasrallah added at the time that Israeli officials have been seeking to change the demographic make-up of al-Quds ever since the Tel Aviv regime was created.
Last week, Trump’s senior Adviser, Jared Kushner, said details of the proposed deal would be announced soon.
A number of top Palestinian officials were also among the demonstrators, including Deputy Head of the Fatah movement Mahmoud al-Alul, member of the movement’s Central Committee Jamal Muheisen and the Governor of the Ramallah and al-Bireh district Laila Ghannam.
The protesters were waving the Palestinian flag and carrying pictures of President Abbas, as they chanted slogans denouncing the “ominous deal”, the overwhelming American support for the Israeli occupation.
They also chanted slogans in support of Abbas and his “wise” policies, stressing the importance of Palestinian national unity.
