Prince Turki Slams Trump For Repeating the Mistakes of Zionist Balfour Declaration

President Trump

Monday 11 December 2017

No, Mr Trump. You “assume the same failed assumptions and repeat the same past failed strategies.” In contrast to the advice of his veteran foreign minister, General George Marshall, he recognized Israel as a state, thereby examining the historical injustice that allowed that state to persecute the Palestinian people and illegally occupy their lands and other Arab lands. The bloodshed and unrest followed Truman’s opportunistic decision to win an electoral victory. The bloodshed and unrest will follow your opportunistic decision to gain an electoral gain.

No, Mr Trump. Your job is not in the interest of the United States. Your job has made you give up your promise to the Islamic nation at the Riyadh summit when “the partnership based on interests and values ​​was offered to a better future for all of us.” Where is the partnership that you promised in your unilateral and wrong decision?

No, Mr Trump. Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel. Your country was one of the architects of Resolution 242 of the UN Security Council, which clearly states “the illegality of the acquisition of territory by war”, which is one of the most important principles of international law, in support of subsequent Security Council resolutions. East Jerusalem is a land captured by Israel by war. Ignoring this truth is a deliberate attempt to deceive and impose “misleading news” on the truth that the whole world knows and accepts only you and the right-wing extremists in Israel, the United States and other countries.

No, Mr Trump. Israel is not the democracy that applauds it. You only have to ask Muslims and Christians who live there and suffer persecution and rob them of their rights. You can also ask Muslims and Christians who live under the brutal occupation imposed by Israel and allow its citizens to steal their land, assassinate their children and imprison their children, women and captives.

No, Mr Trump. Your work contradicts your saying that “you do not give up on the strength of the forces to achieve a permanent peace agreement.” How did you arrive at this conclusion in logical logical sequence? How can you achieve a “lasting peace” as you adopt the illegal claim to the occupied territories of one of the parties? How do you claim that “you have not taken any decision on the final status issues of the negotiations, including the limits of Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem or on the disputed border” and you agree with Israel’s illegal claims otherwise? No, Mr Trump. On the contrary, your decision encouraged the most extreme forces in Israeli society to justify their arrogant claims to all of Palestine because they take your decision to expel all Palestinians from their land and impose a state of bondage on them. And your decision has encouraged Iran and its terrorist followers to claim that they are defending Palestinian rights in the face of the imperialist goals of America and Israel: Where is the future of peace and security for the region? And the forces of terror now wasted find a dose of revival of you are active polarization of volunteers and the expansion of its criminal actions against innocent people in all the world. Where “the future of peace and security is.”

No, Mr Trump. How to call for “calm, moderation, and the voices of tolerance to prevail over the promoters of the ball” and your decision is the balm that refreshes them. Your decision is what feeds them. It is the oxygen that revives them.

No, Mr Trump. Do not send your deputies to us. We will not welcome him. If you want to correct your fallen and arrogant mistakes, you can declare your recognition of the state of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital. Otherwise, Vance words flattery that addresses us. We have learned from the people of what has come to be called America that “the white man speaks with two tongues.” We have known that phrase since 1917.

Our King, Crown Prince, our government and our people condemn your work, and our King advises you to return. For world peace and security, I hope you will listen to his advice.
