Turkey is saying they may at some point in the future put an embassy to Palestine in East Jerusalem.
They don’t say when.
Turkey’s foreign minister has suggested that his country will consider opening an embassy in East Jerusalem once an independent Palestinian state is internationally recognized.
Speaking on Thursday, Mevlut Cavusoglu said there is a “serious determination” among the international community to recognize Palestine. The diplomat added that, once the world acknowledges the claim, he is confident there will be an influx of embassies and other diplomatic services into what would then be the new state’s capital.
“We need to succeed in this,” Cavusoglu said, according the Associated Press. “Once we succeed, embassies will open in the independent Palestinian state’s capital, East Jerusalem.”
Meanwhile, Hamas is vowing to “reverse” the embassy decision, without saying how they are going to change US policy.
Thousands of Palestinians, donning green scarves and waving Hamas’ green flag, assembled in the center of Gaza City to commemorate 30 years since the movement was founded. Its leader vowed to force the US to rescind its “oppressive decision” on Jerusalem.
Speaking before thousands at the rally, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said that “millions of martyrs” will sacrifice themselves to prevent Al-Quds – the Arabic name for Jerusalem – from becoming Israel’s capital.
“On the day of the launch of the resistance movement of Hamas, our souls and our people and our sons and our houses are all for Al-Quds and we will sacrifice them all for the sake of Al-Quds,” Haniyeh told his supporters. “We will sacrifice our blood and our souls for you, Al-Quds.”
The militant Palestinian group called for mass uprisings last week, after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – a decision that has been met with international condemnation.
Meanwhile, the rest of the world is saying, “yo are y’all gonna push these Jews into the sea, or are you just going to keep whining about embassies?”
Many people, such as myself, are sympathetic to the Islamic cause simply because we hate Jews. But what we see is a lot of whining and no action by 2 billion people to push 6 million Jews into the sea.
Moving an embassy is something symbolic. I get that it is symbolically meaningful to the Moslems, but it is symbolic of something that’s already happened: the Jews already stole the land.
Palestine basically does not exist anymore, because most of the Palestinians didn’t even want to fight for it, let alone the rest of Big Islamo.
What we have is a lot of impotent whining.
I am hoping they get it together and wipe Israel off the map, but they’re not going to do it while they’re still bickering about factional nonsense no one cares about.
