Official PA TV, special broadcast on the UN General Assembly vote on Dec. 21, 2017, which called on the US to cancel its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, telephone interview with Secretary of the PLO Executive Committee, Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat

Secretary of the PLO Executive Committee, Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat: “This is a day on which everyone is witness to international law and international legitimacy... Honor and pride to the states of the world and the great majority that refused the language of extortion and threats used by [US] President [Donald] Trump’s administration. The truth is that US Representative [Ambassador to the UN] Nikki Haley has decided to replace the principles of international law with the principles of billionaire extremist Zionist gambler Sheldon Adelson, and decided to stand alongside the settlements and occupation instead of standing alongside peace, justice, and international law.”

PLO official accuses US of acting like a “mafia” over UN vote on US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 20, 2017
Official PA TV, special broadcast, hosting PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi

Official PA TV host: “In everything related to the [UN General Assembly] meeting tomorrow [Dec. 21, 2017, about US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital], according to the media outlets there are threatening messages from Washington to the states that will vote tomorrow at the UN General Assembly.”
PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi: “This is cheap and very shameful extortion. Undoubtedly this [US Ambassador to the UN] Nikki Haley - I don’t know who appointed her as the world’s police officer. She undoubtedly told the states in closed meetings, and afterwards stated in her Twitter account, that ‘We will be following the vote of every state and I will submit a report to the president [Trump], and when you submit a request for aid or any type of special request, we will settle accounts with you over your vote now’ (See note below –Ed.). In other words, this very cheap and shameful extortion, the threat, and the warning are befitting of a state whose nation has declined, whose international level - whose rhetorical, ethical, political, and legal level [has declined] to this level. It acts as if it is a mafia.”

Op-ed in official PA daily says one would think Nikki Haley ordered the assassination of Rabin, that she is an “extremist” and a “racist” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 20, 2017
Excerpt of op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "Haley retroactively assassinates Rabin"

"Whoever listened to [US President Donald] Trump's representative in the UN, [US Ambassador to the UN] Nikki Haley, in the two meetings of the [UN] Security Council regarding Jerusalem will think that she is the one that ordered the assassination of [former Israeli Prime Minister] Yitzhak Rabin. If Rabin and [former Israeli President] Shimon Peres were alive, they would advise Haley to rationally examine Israel's interests, and not out of Zionist extremism…
Haley is not [only] biased in favor of Israel, because all of the US representatives were biased. She does not [only] adopt the Zionist ideology and enterprise; she is by her existence Zionist, extremist, and racist. Many Israelis think that Haley hates the Palestinians even more than they themselves do…
Haley is not only Zionist and an extremist Zionist; she is a racist that hates the Palestinian people, which she blames as the one that rejects the peace proposals, and not [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's government, the government of settlements and expansion. This extremist Zionist views the role that the US played in the past in the peace process – [a role] that is known for being biased in favor of Israel – as a betrayal of the American conscience. [She thinks that] the fact that the American presidents in the past did not transfer their embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem also constitutes a betrayal of the conscience. What conscience is Haley talking about? Undoubtedly she views Rabin's signing of the Oslo [Accords in 1993] as a betrayal of Zionism, and therefore the assassination of the traitor was necessary."

Fatah official calls to implement same “peaceful and non-violent“ policies towards Israel as towards South Africa, compares Trump to “colonialist“ Balfour 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 18, 2017
        “Fatah Movement Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub demanded to strengthen the solidarity with our people, by the international community taking decisive steps regarding Israel.
Rajoub emphasized that the time has come for the same policy that succeeded in South Africa to be implemented, and the same peaceful and non-violent methods that the solidarity movements and states throughout the world use should be implemented.
He added that the time has also come to impose sanctions on those who violate the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people.
He said this during his participation in the 54th election conference of the ruling party [in South Africa], the African National Congress, on behalf of the PLO and Fatah, and as [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas’ representative… He asked: ‘Who is [US President Donald] Trump to determine the status of Jerusalem [by recognizing it as Israel’s capital]? One hundred years ago a British colonialist [Foreign Secretary] called Arthur James Balfour decided to give Palestine, which was not his land, to a movement that is not affiliated with our land (i.e., the Zionist movement.) We say to them - Jerusalem is not yours. Jerusalem is holy to the three monotheistic religions, and it is occupied land according to international law.’”
