The PLO revokes Palestinian recognition of Israel and Oslo accords

The Palestinian Liberation Organization, the second highest Palestinian decision-making authority, decided late Monday night to “suspend recognition of Israel until the latter recognizes the State of Palestine in its 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.” At its meeting in Ramallah, the PLO said that the Oslo Peace Framework accords signed with Israel in the early 1990s “no longer stand.”
The meeting decided to “stop security coordination [with Israel] in all its forms” and called on all Arab states “to sever all ties with any state that recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and transfers its embassy to it”.
The meeting was called in response to President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The PLO rejected the US’ “deal of the century” for a peaceful solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and affirmed it would find “other international pathways under the auspices of the United Nations to sponsor solving the Palestinian cause”.

      Exactly…they never recognized Israel. Nor did they honor any agreements. More Israeli lives were lost after “The Clinton Accord” than previously. We gained exactly nothing!

    Does this mean that Israel can now re-liberate Bethlehem————the birthplace of King David?

      Gen 12:1-3
      1 Now the LORD said to Abram, “Go forth from your country, And from your relatives And from your father’s house, To the land which I will show you; 2 And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing; 3 And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

    The plo publucally announced how they have always felt regarding Israel: they would never recognize Israel *as a Jewish country*.

    No more deceptive statements from the plo. They finally showed their true colors.

    I hope every newspaper and TV station (hey CNN) in the world has the courage to report this (Please contact your local news station’s news desk regarding this)!

    Back to Arafat and throwing every Jew into the sea. Tit for tat is gruesome indeed. Think the local Muslim Arabs need a change of leadership fast. The hand of Gd may not be restrained by the fading forces of liberalism being replaced by patriotic nationalism, things are going to heat up unless a biblical solution is made available.

    Israel: Negotiate a multilateral corruption probe with Saudi Arabia, UAE, and other interested Arab parties into Mr. Mohammad Abbas money dealings. Where did the money go that was handed over to him and the PA for the benefit of the Arabs living under their rule? Demand full accounting.

    You can NOT see the difference before or after this statement. It is like saying the PA does not recognize that they are murderers, or child abusers or inciters or haters or lazy or beggars or holocaust deniers.

    Wow! No more A, B, and C Areas!

    We can now drive in whole Israel (A-Area driving was forbidden for Israeli nationals).
    May the Army serve and protect us also in A-Areas.
    Lets dismantle the Fakestinian “Police” and all the offices they have.

    All is Israel and not autonomy anymore, as they cancel the Oslo accords.
    Nice!

    Drive the Fakestinians out to Jordan, Syria, Lebanon or Gaza/Egypt.
    Let them choose where they want to be, as their arabic brothers would
    for sure give them a warm welcome.
