Palestinians say Jerusalem 'not for sale' after Trump aid threat

Palestinians say Jerusalem 'not for sale'
Trump threatened to cut US aid to Palestinians if they did not return to negotiations with Israel
Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas's office said Wednesday Jerusalem is "not for sale" after US President Donald Trump threatened to cut annual aid of more than $300 million to force them to the negotiating table.


"Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the state of Palestine and it is not for sale for gold or billions," Abbas spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina said, referring to Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The December 6 declaration led Abbas to say the United States could no longer play any role in the Middle East peace process.An earlier statement issued by senior PA official Hanan Ashrawi said that Palestinians would not be "blackmailed" by Trump, whom Ashrawi said has "sabotaged our search for peace, freedom and justice. Now he dares to blame the Palestinians for the consequences of his own irresponsible actions!"
