On Tuesday, Jordanian House Speaker Atef Tarawneh criticized US President Donald Trump’s “sinister” peace plan and considered her declaration as a “black day” for the Palestinian cause.
Al-Tarawneh said in statements to the official Kingdom Television, after Trump announced his plan, that this plan “is inauspicious, and a black day for the Palestinian cause reminds us of the Balfour Declaration.”
He continued: «In 1917 during the First World War, the British seized Palestine from the Ottomans, and they pledged to the Balfour Declaration on November 2 of it, to establish a“ national home for the Jewish people on its soil. ”
And he considered that “this century deal is a one-sided equivalent and a free gift to Israel.”
