Palestinian National Council: “The American administration proves every day that it is a full partner of the Israeli occupation in its policy and in all of its crimes, and it will never be part of the solution but rather part of the problem”
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Aug. 26, 2018
 






Headline: “Palestinian condemnation of the American ‘extortion’ after the cutting of financial aid”
     “The Palestinian National Council (i.e., the legislative body of the PLO) viewed the American administration’s decision to cancel $200 million in financial aid (see note below –Ed.) as a continuation of ‘the financial sanctions war’ that [US] President [Donald] Trump’s administration is waging against our people and its leadership, so that they will agree to accept what is called ‘the deal of the century’ (refers to Trump’s as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan –Ed.). The council emphasized our people’s right to continue its legitimate struggle until it achieves all of its legitimate rights.
The Council said in a declaration from its chairman Salim Al-Za’anoun yesterday [Aug. 25, 2018] that ‘The American policy of extortion and pressures will never succeed. The Palestinian people and its leadership are holding onto the fundamental principles of the cause, and prime among them the right of return of the Palestinian refugees to their homes and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the occupied land of Palestine with its capital of Jerusalem.’
The Palestinian National Council emphasized that ‘The [Palestinian] people’s dignity and rights are not up for negotiation and they are above every consideration. The American administration proves every day that it is a full partner of the Israeli occupation in its policy and in all of its crimes, and it will never be part of the solution but rather part of the problem, and in this way it is distancing itself once more from peace and is biased in favor of the settlements and the occupation…’
The council viewed Washington’s decision to cancel the financial aid that is estimated at more than $200 million as ‘cheap extortion meant to achieve political goals…’
PLO Executive Committee Secretary, [Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator] Saeb Erekat said yesterday that ‘The aid is not a favor to our people, but rather an obligation of the international community, which bears responsibility for the continuation of the Israeli occupation that constitutes a fortified wall before the possibility of developing the Palestinian economy and society.’ He said that Washington is evading this international commitment by having stopped this aid.”
