The US to close Palestinian mission in Washington failing serious peace talks with Israel
The US State Department has warned the Palestinian Authority that President Donald Trump has 90 days to decide on whether to close the Palestinian diplomatic office in Washington. Only if he determines that they have entered into “direct, meaningful negotiations with Israel,” will the office be allowed to remain open. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has determined that the Palestinians broke US laws by calling for Israelis to be prosecuted by the International Criminal Court at the Hague, State Department officials said. Palestinian foreign minister Riad Malki said Saturday that the Palestinians would not give in to “extortion’ and “the ball is now in the American court.”

Palestinians may want peace, and also pigs may fly, but generally I doubt it.
I would bet on pigs flying
I guess that to be Neutral as America claims to be on this issue, the Israeli Embassy and outposts will have to be shuttered as well.
PS. Where is the problem with the call for people to be prosecuted at the Hague if they have broken international law?
Firstly, the Palestinians will have to prove that there is a case to answer. If they can’t, no Prosecution.
If they can. . .
Diplomats in the Palestinian diplomatic office for peace should be awarded 2 virgins each, Lapua and Beretta, and to be more specific a belly dance.
Why are the Palestinians in the US anyway. After all why would they want to live in the home of the ‘great Satan’.
