Fatah Youth Movement demands Abbas’s resignation
AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Fatah Youth Movement at Birzeit University on Saturday called on Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to step down as president over his participation in the funeral of Shimon Peres. The Movement slammed in its statement Abbas for his “humiliating” participation in the funeral of former Israeli president and “criminal” Shimon Peres. The statement released by the student youth movement came after Abbas’s travel to occupied Jerusalem to offer his condolences to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and to attend Peres’s funeral on Friday. “We condemn this humiliating participation, which is against the Palestinian people and consider it a form of betrayal.” Their statement said that Abbas, as the general leader of Fatah, violated the movement’s rules by attending Peres’s funeral. The statement released by the student youth movement came as the latest condemnation of Abbas, from Palestinians from across the political spectrum, for his participation in the funeral of Peres who is considered by the Palestinian people as a war criminal.
