The Palestinian president has called the U.S. ambassador to Israel a “son of a dog,” in an angry rant against the Trump administration.

In a speech Monday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas pre-emptively rejected an expected White House peace proposal.

He criticized the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the American plan to move its embassy to the city and the cutting off of hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the U.N. agency for Palestinian “refugees.”

He also condemned Ambassador David Friedman’s close ties with Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, describing him as a “son of a dog.”

“Some say wait for their plan,” Abbas said, regarding the as-yet-undisclosed Trump peace plan. “What shall we wait for? No, we will not wait, and we will not allow that.”

Earlier Monday, Friedman condemned the Palestinian leadership for its silence in the wake of two deadly terror attacks – a car-ramming on Thursday in Samaria and a stabbing on Sunday in the Old City of Jerusalem – that claimed the lives of three people. Another two were seriously wounded, one critically.
