Palestinians who are part of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah Movement published pictures on Facebook of their protest in Bethlehem against the Bahrain summit and the "Deal of the Century" on Tuesday, which included strong anti-Trump and anti-Israel sentiments, Palestinian Media Watch reported.
PMW is an Israeli watchdog organization that monitors the Palestinian Authority for incitements.
In their report, they uncovered photos of US President Donald Trump being hung in effigy and later burned. These anti-Trump acts of protest were a few of the dozens of pictures of what seemingly was a standard march with protesters and signs.
The text on the effigy's shirt said, "The Deal of the Century" and "The Bahrain Conference" in Arabic, according to Palestinian Media Watch.
There was also a poster in the picture that said, "Despicable Trump, your talk is like your urine. Shut up," the report discovered.
There were also other images of incitement. In another picture from Monday, there is an Palestinian man in Gaza burning a poster with a caricature of Trump along with the word "deal." There were also pictures of the US and UK flags on the sign, as well as swastikas.
At another protest, the Fatah Movement also held signs saying, "Without Jerusalem: No Peace, No Prosperity," and "Jerusalem Not For Sale," addressing their boycott of the economic plan and their unwavering belief in Jerusalem as their capital.
Palestinians, along with Arab MKs, launched a series of marches in the West Bank and Gaza
throughout the duration of the Bahrain Summit from June 24-26. While some Palestinian businessmen
attended the conference, the Palestinian Authority boycotted it. Israel was not invited to the conference, but a number of the country's businessmen and journalists attended. A number of Arab countries like the UAE and Saudi Arabia chose to attend the conference as well, while others such as Lebanon firmly stood against it. The conference was a platform for US official Jared Kushner to roll out the economic portion of the US Mideast peace plan.
