Tehran Friday Prayer Leader:
Hujjat al-Islam Seddiqi blasted the plan proposed by US President Donald Trump, and said that the ‘Deal of the Century,’ lacks legitimacy as it ignores the Palestinians’ rights.

RNA – Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the people in Tehran on Friday, Hujjat al-Islam Kazem Seddiqi said, “It is an awful scandal for US President Donald Trump who displaced Palestinian people and offered them ‘Deal of the Century’ gift which is doomed to failure.”

He reiterated that the deal has created a new uprising in the Islamic world which will prevent them from achieving their nasty objectives.

Defying international outcry, Trump announced the general provisions of the plan at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side.

The scheme — which all Palestinian groups have unanimously rejected — largely meets Israel’s demands in the decades-old conflict, while creating a Palestinian state with limited control over its own security and borders.

It enshrines Jerusalem al-Quds as “Israel’s undivided capital” and allows the regime to annex settlements in the occupied West Bank and the Jordan Valley, among other controversial terms.

Palestinian leaders, who severed all ties with Washington in late 2017 after Trump recognized Jerusalem al-Quds as the capital of the Israeli regime, immediately rejected the plan, with President Mahmoud Abbas saying it “belongs to the dustbin of history.”

Thousands of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and besieged Gaza Strip poured out onto the street in immediate condemnation of the plan.

Muslims all across the world have also expressed solidarity with the Palestinian cause and denounced the Trump’s proposed plan.
