Chairman of Hamas political bureau Khaled Meshaal has urged the president-elect of the United States Donald Trump to revise his country’s foreign policy and bring U.S. support of the Israeli occupation to an end.
“The Palestinian people have been wronged by the biased U.S. policies that favor Israel,” Meshaal said in a speech he delivered during the 11th Youth for Jerusalem Conference in Istanbul on Thursday, stressing that there will not be stability in the area without the Palestinians getting their rights.
He asserted the Palestinians’ total adherence to the liberation of Jerusalem and the entire land of Palestine.
“Jerusalem is the icon and heart of Palestine’s struggle and we will not cede an inch of it,” he said.
“Jerusalem is the key to war and peace in the region,” he added, calling on Arab states to assume their roles towards protecting the holy city from Israel’s schemes.
