Palestine Liberation Organization calls for cutting ties with Israel

Palestine Liberation Organization calls for cutting ties with Israel

The holy city dominated world attention after U.S. President Donald Trump on December 6 recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, increasing the tension across the region. "Where is the Palestinian Anwar Sadat", she said, referring to the Jordanian and Egyptian leaders who made peace with Israel.

"Nikki Haley needs to shut up and realize that the Palestinian leadership is not the problem", Erekat said.

"I am deeply concerned by the Israeli authorities' demolition this morning of two donor-funded classrooms (3rd and 4th grade), serving 26 Palestinian school children in the Bedouin and refugee community of Abu Nuwar, located in Area C on the outskirts of Jerusalem", Valent said in a statement. The conditions it faces also represent those of many Palestinian communities, where a combination of Israeli policies and practices -including demolitions and restricted access to basic services, such as education - have created a coercive environment that violates the human rights of residents and generates a risk of forcible transfer. "His recent actions demonstrate the total opposite", Haley said. "I'm not saying that we don't make mistakes; every society and every government makes mistakes".

Erekat insisted Palestinians are not looking for a fight with the US, as they plan to take the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel to the International Court of Justice.

The US and Israel are searching for Palestinian leaders who will accept the "liquidation of the Palestinian national project", Erekat said.

The aim, it said, is to "hold Israeli politicians and military and security officials accountable and bring them before worldwide justice".

President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to address the General Assembly of the United Nations later this month and is determined to present request to recognize Palestine as a full member state.

Mass media reports cited the unnamed United States official accusing the Palestinians of rejecting talks with the Israeli occupation authorities.

"We don't seek a confrontation or a fight with the USA administration".

The statements, however, have been largely vague and non-binding, leading several other Palestinian political parties to disregard and criticise them.

"The U.S. administration is itself saying that it's not an honest broker in the peace process", Erekat added. "Therefore, we are seeking, together with global parties, to convene an worldwide conference for peace".
