Arab League to hold urgent meeting on Trump’s Middle East plan

Cairo: The Arab League said it will convene an urgent meeting on Saturday in response to US President Donald Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.
Hossam Zaki, the pan-Arab body’s deputy secretary, told reporters on Tuesday that Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas would attend to discuss the “so-called Deal of the Century”.
The extraordinary meeting comes on the back of a Palestinian request to the League, which is headquartered in Cairo. The grand imam of Egypt’s prestigious Al-Azhar mosque and university lambasted the plan at a conference in Cairo in the presence of many of the Sunni world’s leading religious scholars.
“Our identity as Arabs and Muslims is over... I felt totally ashamed watching Trump with the Israeli leader,” Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb said. (AFP)
