    Breaking: Palestinians react with outrage to Biden pick’s al-Quds remarks

    Palestinian movements have reacted with outrage at remarks by US President Joe Biden’s pick for secretary of state in support of the Israeli regime’s claim to the holy occupied city of al-Quds.

    “Yes and Yes,” Antony Blinken said during a testimony on Tuesday after being asked, “Do you agree that Jerusalem (al-Quds) is the capital of Israel (illegal Zionist entity) and do you commit that the United States will keep our embassy there?”

    Former President Donald Trump rolled out a hugely controversial plan early last year touted as the so-called “Deal of the Century,” under which he gave the Israeli regime huge concessions at the expense of the Palestinian people.

    Ever since the US’s moves concerning al-Quds, Palestinians have stopped recognizing any intermediary role by Washington in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

    The Gaza Strip-based Palestinian resistance movement of Hamas said Blinken’s remarks ran counter to international laws and resolutions that recognize al-Quds as an occupied city. Spokesman Hazem Qassem called the comments “an affront to all Arab nations and states.”

    Islamic Jihad group also called the remarks “a slap on the face of all who have pinned their hopes on the US administration.”

    Spokesman Dawood Shihab said Blinken’s position indicated the US’s insistence on supporting the occupying regime and manipulate the truth. “All should know this that the US will never change. It is Palestinians [themselves], who should get rid of the occupation through long-term struggle and endeavor.”

    Meanwhile, Abdullah Abdullah, a senior official within the Palestinian Fatah movement in West Bank reminded that the US Congress had decided to call al-Quds the Israeli regime’s capital back in 1995.

    Trump only executed the decision and now his successor cannot reverse the congressional designation, he reminded.
