The “Palestinian Liberation Organization” (PLO) gathered for a two-day meeting early this week, to discuss recent developments, namely the recognition by President Trump of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. President of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, declared some troubling things, virtually cutting off any diplomatic possibilities with Israel for a future peace agreement. The Palestinian position of course demands a Palestinian State (where NO Jews will be allowed to live), with East Jerusalem as its capital. Abbas warned Trump that he will be “slapped back” and cursed Trump in Arabic, saying “May your house be destroyed.” He also declared that Israel is a “colonial” European project, and the Jewish people have zero justified ties to Israel. He also praised the violence that has ensued since President Trump declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in early December, 2017, and calling for more violent resistance against Israel.
