Trump Completely Un-enamored With Abbas

PA’s direct involvement with incitement to violence against Israel enrages Trump

By |

During the apparent love-fest between Mahmoud Abbas and POTUS Trump at the Whitehouse in early May, Trump tweeted that it “was an honor to meet with PA President Mahmoud Abbas”.

It didn’t take much time for Israel’s PM Binyamin Netanyahu to come out strongly and castigate Abbas for blatantly lying to Trump regarding the former’s intention to reach a peace agreement with Israel. Trump then went and deleted his tweet effectively retracting his words of respect for Abbas.

After the debacle involving the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ donation and support of establishing a women’s center, which was subsequently dedicated to a terrorist Dalal Mughrabi who carried out one of the most deadly terrorist attacks in Israel’s history, it has emerged that Trump showed that he will not tolerate brazen lies and support for incitement to terrorism.

When Trump and Abbas met in Bethlehem during the POTUS’ whirlwind visit to Israel last week, Trump made it clear during their joint press conference that support for terrorism and incitement must end. Trump alluded to the PA’s continued support and payments to jailed murderers and terrorists stating, “these actions are obstacles to peace.”

Reports have emerged that the closed door meeting between Trump and Abbas was definitely not friendly when Abbas reiterated that his Fatah faction was not involved in anti-Israel and anti-Semitic incitement.

Trump reportedly yelled at Abbas, “You tricked me in Washington! You talked to me about peace, but the Israelis showed me that you are personally supporting incitement. Peace can never take root in a place where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded.”
