Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas has issued a directive calling on Muslim religious figures to use their sermons at the mosques to preach against President Donald Trump’s Deal of the Century peace plan.
In an official document, titled “The Deal of the Century Will Not Pass,” Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas on Monday ordered the Muslim leaders in the PA to dedicate Friday’s address to generating a unified front against what he called the US “plot.”
In the document, which TPS has seen, Abbas stresses that “Palestinian unity” and support for him as a leader should be highlighted.
The Imams and other preachers are specifically ordered to use verses from the Quran underscoring the sanctity of the land and are similarly directed to emphasize the significance of the so-called “Right of Return” and an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital.
“The Deal of the Century will fail and the Palestinian nation will not sell its holy land,” the document states.
Every week, the Palestinian regime, with Abbas’ direct oversight, authorizes a text which is to be read at mosques throughout the PA on Friday.
This Friday’s sermons will be a prelude to broad demonstrations Fatah is planning to protest the US-sponsored “Peace to Prosperity” workshop in Manama, Bahrain.
The summit, slated for the end of June, is considered a major step toward unveiling President Donald Trump’s peace plan for the Middle East, and the PA has called on Arab countries and Arab businessmen to boycott it.
