Fatah tweet comparing Trump to Hitler

Fatah launches virulent attack against Trump over Jerusalem move

Abbas's party mounts anti-Trump campaign, posting tweets comparing the American president to Hitler and photos of Palestinians burning photos of VP Pence, allowing vitriol against the US even on state TV.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah faction has launched a virulent attack againt US President Donald Trump after he recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital, going as far as comparing the American leader to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.



Fatah has been aiming its vitriol not just at Trump, but also at Vice President Mike Pence and the entire American administration.



The attacks have not been limited to social media, either, and have also been given a stage on Palestinian state media, which is controlled by Abbas and the Palestinian Authority.


The caustic attacks against Trump culminated in a post on Friday on Fatah's official Twitter page, which featured a photo of Trump above a photo of Hitler, with text in English saying: "I don't see any difference, do you?" and the hashtag "#HandsOffAlQuds," referring to Jerusalem by its Arabic name.



Another tweet on the same Twitter account featured photos of Palestinians burning a photo of Vice President Pence in protest of the visit he was supposed to hold in the region—which was eventually postponed to mid-January—with text in English: "Bethlehem Welcomes the Messengers of Peace, not the Messengers of War - Pence go home."



Yet another tweet featured a video showing a student from the Fatah group at Al-Quds University in Tulkarm entering one of the university's lecture halls and disrupts a gathering of an organization that receives support from USAID.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is regularly targeted on Fatah social media pages, also came under attack from the Palestinian faction this week. But rather than focusing on diplomatic matters, Fatah's official Twitter posted a photo of Netanyahu and his wife accompanied by the word "corrupted" in Hebrew.



Fatah's attack against Trump is unusual, as the Palestinians have made efforts in recent years not to directly and bluntly attack the American administration, even after Trump's election, in an effort not to burn bridges with the White House.
