Bisharat blamed the Trump administration for giving Israel’s “right-wing extremist government” the green light to commit such crimes in the Jordan Valley, calling the demolition of Khirbet Humsah, “organized international terrorism against the Palestinian existence and Palestinians.”

When asked if he feared another four years under President Donald Trump, Bisharat said that while things may become even more difficult for the Palestinians on the ground, in the end, it doesn’t really matter.

“Whether Trump wins the elections or not, these lands are Palestinians and we are staying here,” he said. “Even if the occupation destroys everything we have every time, we will rebuild.”
