Palestinians: Abbas’s Big Bluff – Again

PLO leaders who met in Ramallah on January 15 recommended that the Palestinians revoke their recognition of Israel.

The recommendation came in response to US President Donald Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

The PLO leaders also advised their leadership to suspend security coordination with Israel. They also called for revising all agreements signed with Israel, including the Oslo Accords.

The meeting of the PLO Central Council was chaired by President Mahmoud Abbas, who in the past few weeks has chosen to embark on an open collision course with the US administration, possibly in the hope that US Department of State will back down as it always previously has.

Abbas has been in a belligerent mode since Trump’s December 6 announcement on Jerusalem. In a speech before the PLO Central Council session, Abbas mocked Trump and hurled abuses at him. Abbas said he hoped God would “destroy” Trump’s house. The Arabic Yakhrab baytu means “May his house be destroyed”. According to The Guardian, Abbas “did not literally mean the White House or Trump Tower. But its wider sense is unmissable.”
