President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas has called for the United States to be removed as a mediator in the Middle East peace process during a meeting in Ramallah on Monday, saying that «a crazy person» would not accept their role in the situation. «I think you agree with me, if you don't object, you agree with me that we will not accept anymore for the United States to be a partner or... Еще a mediator in the peace process. A crazy person wouldn't accept this,» stated Abbas. Abbas added that the decision to make the US a mandate instead of the UK was «blindly» made, and believes the US is biased towards Zionism. Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel on December 6 in a live televised address from Washington DC, simultaneously starting the process of relocating the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The announcement has sparked a wave of protests throughout the world.
