PSP Holds Protest in Beirut against Trump's Jerusalem Move

W300

The Progressive Youth Organization, the youth wing of the Progressive Socialist Party, organized a sit-in Wednesday outside the U.N.'s headquarters in Beirut to denounce plans by US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Organizers said the demo was being held in rejection of “any decision that alters Jerusalem's status as the capital of the State of Palestine.”

“We came here to tell the entire world that Jerusalem is our capital, that Jerusalem is our pride and that Jerusalem is Arab,” a PSP youth official said at the demo.

“In the name of all Lebanon's youths, the Progressive Youth Organization categorically rejects any decision aimed at besieging Jerusalem, and it calls for an uprising at all levels in rejection of that,” the official added.

PSP did recognize Tel Aviv or any Israeli city to be its capital before ?

Who cares. We’ve done plenty for the palos. It’s time to live in peace with Israel.

And by peace you mean give up Jerusalem and as much of Palestine as possible and hand it on a silver plate to the ashkenazis and other foreigner jews?

This is not about lebanese, palestinians, syrians, iranians, arabs, shia, houthis or whatever you are stuck on. It's an issue greater than that. But people like you live in heedlessness and can't see beside their noses. Typical secularist who don't care about Islam yet calls himself Muslim when it suits him to make a point. God is well aware of you.

you're racist, you demonstrate it by speaking of ashkenazis and foreigner jews. Are we not all the result of legal and illegal immigrations? aren't Lebanese Shia exclusively from Yemen and the Arabian Peninsula yet here they are today trying to destroy Lebanon from within? The jews got there in 1947 and there's nothing we can do about it. the earlier we accept it, the better for the palestinians.

You tried that in the 1980's when you signed a preliminary agreement with Israel but when it got back to Beirut your then Syrian occupiers took it up.
Now your Hizballah occupiers wouldn't let this happen.
