Senior Hamas official Izzat al-Rishq on Friday condemned the Democrat decision to reinstate Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Writing on his Facebook page, Al-Rishq commented: "Jerusalem was and will always be the eternal capital of Palestine, and of the Arab and Muslim nations."

The official said that the return of the Democratic Party platform reinstating Jerusalem as the capital of Israel is "begging for Jewish votes."

On Thursday, The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine condemned the use of Jerusalem "in competition for the Jewish vote" between the two main sides of the American election, according to Palestinian Ma'an news agency.
