Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat threatened (or predicted?) Arab violence if the US relocates its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Here’s Erekat dog whistling after saying he’d resign and the PLO would revoke its recognition of Israel. Draw your own conclusion:
Furthermore, said Erekat, all American embassies in the Arab world would be forced to close — not necessarily because Arab leaderships would want to close them, but because the infuriated public in the Arab world would not “allow” for the embassies to continue to operate.
Erekat, as usual, has inflated the affection he believes other Arabs have towards the Palestinians. In fact, the great Arab masses do not care one whit about the Palestinians. The sad fact for Erekat and his people is that other Arabs hate them much more than they hate the Israelis.
