Op-ed in official PA daily:
Trump is “a most problematic man…eccentric, aggressive, racist, and rash in his responses because he is short-tempered and undiplomatic”
The Palestinian Authority uses those adjectives to describe Trump. Consider the source: here is how Palestinian Media Watch describes the PA:
PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models.
The Palestinian Authority, along with its fellow anti-Israel jihadists, is clearly fearful of what Trump may do to stymie their ruthless efforts against Israel, particularly given that Trump has vowed to fight Israel’s enemies. For this, Trump is called “racist.” The PA Ambassador has also said to the UN that “if Trump moves the embassy to Jerusalem, that is an ‘aggression’ and ‘an attack.'” The Palestinian envoy to the United Nations, Riyad Mansour, has threatened to “make the life of US diplomats miserable and to ‘exact revenge’ on the U.S. if Trump tries to move the American embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. Trump expressed his intention to do just that back in January when he pledged loyalty to Israel and called Obama ‘the worst thing that has ever happened to Israel’ for negotiating the recent Iran-nuclear deal.”
Palestinian jihadists have one mission: to delegitimize and destroy Israel. They brand any action that seeks to protect Israel as “racist” and “Zionist.” Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of New York Daily News, describes anti-Zionism accurately:
The greatest obstacle to peace between Israelis and Palestinians is quite simply a virulent jihadist hatred of Jews and the Jewish state. It cannot be appeased.
“Trump’s ‘true face’ – ‘Zionist and racist,'” by Nan Jacques Zilberdik, Palestinian Media Watch, November 15, 2016:
Following the election of Donald Trump as the next US president, Palestinian leaders and others have reacted to the choice of the American people and voiced their opinions and expectations of Trump.
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub commented on Trump’s “true” nature, categorizing him as a “Zionist and racist”:
“Regarding [US President-elect Donald] Trump, I think that even before he won, he revealed his true face, Zionist and racist, supporting and adopting the Israeli right-wing and racist policy. In my opinion, his predecessor [US President Barack Obama] is not better than him, even though at the beginning he tried to present himself in a different way.”

The PA ambassador to the UN “warned Trump” against carrying out his campaign promise to move the US Embassy to Jerusalem, considering it an “aggression” and “attack”:
“Palestinian Ambassador to the UN Riyad Mansour said that if [US] President-elect Donald Trump decides to implement his promise to transfer the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the Palestinians ‘will make life miserable’ for the US at the UN institutions. ‘If they attack us by transferring the embassy to Jerusalem, that will constitute a violation of a [UN] Security Council resolution, and [UN] General Assembly Resolution 181 (i.e., the UN Partition Plan), which was drafted by the US. A step such as this would mean a revelation of aggression towards us…”

In the same context, Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee Saeb Erekat expressed confidence that “what we heard before the elections is not what we will hear after the elections”:
“The American Embassy will not be transferred to Jerusalem under any circumstances, as that would destroy the American interests in the Middle East, the Islamic world, and many countries around the world. I believe that the US position regarding the settlements has not changed since 1968, since it said that they are illegitimate and illegal, and [that] they are an obstacle to peace. The US rejects the annexation of Jerusalem and considers it illegitimate. Therefore, I believe that what we heard before the elections is not what we will hear after the elections.”….
