Op-ed in Official PA daily: if the US recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, “it would be like a volcanic explosion that emits lava in every direction”

Headline: “Be careful of harming Jerusalem”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

“For the thousandth time one can direct the attention of [US] President Donald Trump and the heads of his administration to the danger of transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem. A decision like this is no joke or [mere] tactical matter from the Palestinian point of view; it is a central and essential matter in the Palestinian national struggle. No Palestinian leader is able to relinquish Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Palestine. If the US wants to preserve its interests in the region, if it is concerned about Israel, and if it is interested in fighting terror – it must not consider a decision like this, because it would be like a volcanic explosion that emits lava in every direction.”
