PLO: Trump Has Given 'Extremists, Nuts' Excuse to Commit Violence

("New Day")

President Donald Trump has delivered a "death knell" to the peace process in the Middle East with his impending announcement to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, an executive member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) said Wednesday.

Hanan Ashrawi told CNN's "New Day" morning program that Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel also gives the "perfect excuse" for "extremists and nuts all over the world" to commit violence.

The embassy move "means the death knell of any peace process and destruction of the chances peace in the region," Ashrawi, a PLO executive committee member, told CNN. "President Trump has destroyed not only the chances of peace, but the stability and security of the region as a whole. He has undermined his closest allies in the Arab world.

"He has also taken a position that is absolutely illegal and violation of international law," she said.

Trump "has disqualified the U.S., sadly, from playing any role in peace-making.

"At the same time, he has given all extremists and nuts all over the world who are ready to commit acts of violence the perfect excuse because he has provoked spiritual sentiments, religious feelings to the point where we don't know how far the ramifications will go," Ashrawi said.
