The Palestinian Authority's ambassador to the United Nations is not a fan of President-elect Donald Trump's call to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Riyad Mansour went on a tirade about the election of Trump and what it means for the so-called two-state solution for Israel. He then threatened to "make life miserable" for the U.S. at the U.N. by unleashing all of its diplomatic weapons.
Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and declaring it the capital of Israel is a violation of U.N. resolutions, he noted.
If the U.S. administration wants to defy international law, they are doing something illegal. I hope they will do nothing.
Many candidates gave the same election promise but didn't implement it, because what you do when you are campaigning is one thing, but when you have to deal with the legal thing, it is something else.
If they do that, nobody should blame us for unleashing all of the weapons we have in the U.N. to defend ourselves, and we have a lot of weapons in the U.N.
Among the "weapons" at the PA's disposal, he said, were:
- force the U.S. to use its veto in a Security Council over the PA's admission as a member state to the U.N.; and
- reopen "Pandora's Box" regarding the many international criminal court rulings regarding Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
