Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah on Thursday blasted U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“We feel that we are facing Balfour Declaration 2,” Nasrallah said. “When we understand the dangers involved in this decision, it will prompt everyone to act and take responsibility – and not to obey the voices that will be heard in the coming days. I expect that we will hear voices in the Arab and Islamic world that will say that what happened is meaningless.”
“We all know that the Israeli enemy and the leaders of this entity do not respect international resolutions. This is proven. They do not even respect the agreements they signed. Their interest is the most important for them, they do not care what the Arab countries, Islamic states, European countries, Canada and Latin America say,” added the Hezbollah leader.
“For those who are interested in a peace agreement, Trump fired the last bullet, and some said that Trump was brave enough to announce the death of the peace process. When Jerusalem is removed from the Palestinian issue, then it is destroyed. That is what Trump did.”
Nasrallah claimed that, with Trump’s declaration, “he humiliated a billion and a half Muslims, and hundreds of millions of Christians for whom the Holy City bears their historical, cultural and religious identity and which was handed over to an artificial Zionist entity.”
