Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas attacked the Trump administration’s recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital in an appearance at the United Nations on Tuesday.

“This administration undertook an unlawful decision, which was rejected by the international community, to remove the issue of Jerusalem off the table without any reason,” Abbas told the Security Council.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and Jared Kushner stared down the Palestinian leader as he criticized their decision to stand by Israel.

Abbas claimed that Jerusalem had been “occupied since 1967 and it is our capital.”

The Palestinian leader claimed they want to rule Jerusalem as “a city open to all faithful or all the faithful of the three monotheistic religions.”
