The Israeli right wing believes that expanding settlements and legislating racist law of annexation and expansion is capable of resolving their deep historical crises, stemming mainly from its occupation of the Palestinian land and its continued denial of the legitimate rights of its people, also attempting to control the people by force and subjugating them under a repulsive apartheid regime.

Guatemala's embassy move to Jerusalem is a shameless act of lawlessness 


The State of Palestine condemns the announcement by Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales about his country’s decision to move their embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Morales dragged his country to the wrong side of history by committing a flagrant violation of international law as well as relevant United Nations Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, including most recently resolution ES10/19. This announcement is also a brazen act of disrespect and disregard to the collective positions of international alliances and groups Guatemala is part of, including the Non-aligned Movement.

The State of Palestine expresses its adamant and unequivocal rejection of the announcement made by US President Donald Trump. The American Administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is an act of hostility against the Palestinian people, their inalienable national rights. Further, the State of Palestine views this policy announcement as an assault on the spirit and letter of international law, including the United Nations Charter, which does not accept the acquisition of territory by force nor the consequences that result from such illegal actions. It is also an assault on the spirit and standing of Jerusalem as a city at the heart and spiritual center of billions of people around the world.
