Columbia University professor Hamid Dabashi isn't taking news of President Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem well, to put it mildly. This is from his Facebook page:

What gibberish the racist thug whom Americans call their president says about Jerusalem, what ahistorical nonsense the Zionist thieves invent as their history has absolutely nothing to do with the historical fact that Jerusalem is and will forever be a Palestinian City and the home of sacrosanct sites to billions of Jews, Christians, and Muslims worldwide —

The monstrous BBC is now completing the task of entrusting the colonial conquest of Palestine to Zionists the British started 100 years ago with the Balfour Declaration— normalizing this armed robbery of a people's homeland —

Trump's announcement tonight confirms and underlines the fact that Israel in its entirety and from the very beginning has been a settler colony imposed on Palestinians by European and US imperialism— any human being with the slightest sense of decency should forever be ashamed to continue to call themselves "Zionists" —
