Palestinian Authority Leader Mahmoud Abbas

(Worthy News) - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas told the UN General Assembly on Thursday that Jerusalem "is not for sale" while urging US President Donald Trump to rescind his decisions recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and cutting aid to the Palestinians, which he said had undermined the two-state solution to the Middle East conflict.

The aging Palestinian leader did not hold back on the expected broadside against Israel, which he accused of continuing a “colonial occupation” continues to “suffocate us."

He also said that Israel's recent passage of the Nation-State Law will lead to an apartheid state, adding that it discriminates against the country’s non-Jewish population. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
