As Jerusalem’s Mayor Affixes US Embassy Signs, PA Official Demands Global Boycott

(JNS) As Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat affixed the first street signs directing drivers to the “U.S. Embassy” in the capital, senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat called on foreign dignitaries to boycott the celebratory opening on May 14.

Approximately 800 American and Israeli visitors are expected at the inauguration of the new embassy in Jerusalem’s Arnona neighborhood, but officials from other countries have also been invited.

Barkat personally affixed the first of several new road signs pointing to the location of the new embassy. “I thank President Trump for making this historic moment come to fruition,” he said in a statement released by his office. “Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Jewish people—and the world is beginning to recognize this fact.”

In the meantime, Erekat, who is a senior official in the government of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, said the new embassy is “encouragement of international anarchy” and called on everyone to boycott the event.
