Trump's "deal of century" raises concerns in Arab region


(MENAFN) The "deal of the century" is the most prominent matter on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman agenda, according to Arab diplomatic sources in Cairo, MEM reports.

While Palestinians re-affirm their rejection of the so-called 'deal', the leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), Maher Al-Taher, called on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and all Arab leaders to "stand by the Palestinian people and support their struggle."

In an interview with Quds Press, Al-Taher said that "all Palestinian people reject "the deal of the century" because it seeks to destroy the Palestinian cause."

Al-Taher went on to say, "no power can pressure us. The Palestinian people will stick to their rights and principles. They will demand that Jerusalem remains the eternal capital of Palestine. They will stick to the right of return and to an independent and sovereign Palestinian state. Therefore, any pressure exerted by Arab or Western countries will not succeed."

However, in an interview with Quds Press, the former Egyptian political science professor Abdullah Al-Ashaal expressed, "concerns that the practical steps that are being taken on the ground might be more influential than the Palestinian rejectionist political positions."

Al-Ashaal went on, "Saudi Arabia and Egypt are adopting the same Israeli policy, in terms of changing the reality on the ground to impose the fait accompli."

He added, "There are steps on the ground led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, in the Sinai, which will be the greater Gaza."

Al-Ashaal predicted that, "President Donald Trump, who is expected to visit Jerusalem and Cairo in May, will announce the leadership of the great Israeli state and the implementation of the deal of the century."
