Trump’s Plan Will Cause More Palestinian Resistance as it’s Only ‘Toying’ With Their Dignity – Larijani
By Staff, Agencies
US President Donald Trump’s plan to offer Palestinians a multibillion investment if they agree to a political solution with “Israel” will convince the people under occupation that resistance is the only way, Iran’s parliament speaker Ali Larijani said.
“While toying with a nation’s dignity is scandalous, this will strengthen resistance movements as Palestinians realize that they can only succeed through resistance,” Larijani told IRNA news agency.
“Trump wants to make a deal on the fate of the Palestinian people” when it should be a joint international effort, he added. “An international disarrangement [around Palestine] is largely the responsibility of the Americans.”
The US plan to pour $50 billion into the West Bank and Gaza, as well as into neighboring Jordan, Egypt and Lebanon, was presented to the media by the White House senior adviser and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, on Saturday. He insisted that the so-called “opportunity of the century” will create a million jobs in Palestine and double its GDP over the next 10 years.
