MEMRI: Fatah Official Sultan Abu Al-Einein: Transfer of U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem Will Lead to Renewed Bloodshed
Broadcast on Sunday, January 1, 2017
Sultan Abu Al-Einein of the Fatah Central Committee warned that any "act of stupidity" by the new U.S. administration would "ignite the Palestinian territories.” In an interview with the Egypt-based Alghad TV on January 1, Abu Al-Einein said that moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem would lead to renewal of bloodshed, for which the U.S. and Israel would bear responsibility.
Anyone in the West who does not believe that Arabs are simply using this as yet another excuse to execute terrorist attacks against Jews, is living in a Western fantasy world.
The Arabs are Yishma'elites who understand physical force. They also understand the State of Israel's consistent lack of follow-through, and repeated cave-ins to international pressure.

into a Western slot.
The members of Abbas's Fata"h Party do not just want Jerusalem. They do not just want Yehudah and Shomron (Judea and Samaria). They want Be'er Sheva, Yaffo, Haifa, and Tel-Aviv; They want everything. (See the map in the image - upper right)
The Arabs are not like the Western Edomites (ויקרא רבה יג,ה) who, over the centuries, have settled on the strategy of using their mouths and wallets as weapons, as much as their guns and missiles.
However, perhaps the Arabs feel threatened not by the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, and moving of the U. S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Perhaps, they feel threatened by this....

No wonder many Israeli Government officials are not thrilled with the idea either. We will undoubtedly be forced to defend ourselves, and then endure yet another wave of international condemnations, which to them would be a fate worse than Israeli deaths.

Of course, I am all for the U. S. moving its Embassy to Jerusalem. But, will the Israeli Government do 100% of what needs to be done, in order to protect its citizens from Arab repercussions?
Only time will tell.
