Bolton addresses the Federalist Society
The Trump-the government announced Monday that it speaks of the closure of the Palestine Liberation Organization mission in Washington, citing the Palestinian leader of ” resistance against the peace and tried in a international Tribunal for the prosecution of Israel for alleged war crimes.
The announcement is the latest blow by the United States against the Palestinians in the midst of a dead Mideast peace process.
“The United States will have all the resources to say for the protection of our citizens and of our allies from the unjust persecution by the illegitimate court,” National security adviser John Bolton plans during a Monday afternoon speech to the Federalist Society. “The United States will always stand with our friend and ally, Israel.”
Bolton is on the PLO’s decision in this speech, said: “The Trump administration will not keep the office open, if the Palestinians refuse to take action, start the direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel.”
He plans to say: “The United States supports a direct and robust peace process, and we will not allow the ICC or any other organization, to restrict the right of Israel to self-defense.”
The White house has reportedly mulled wine of the PLO mission in Washington shut down since last November, unless the Palestinian leadership joins in serious peace negotiations with Israel.
Bolton was the announcement of the closure of the mission adheres to a provision in U.S. law, the PLO says will have to close the mission if the Palestinians try to use the ICC prosecuted Israelis for crimes against Palestinians.
“While the court of auditors, the membership of the so-called state welcomes Palestine, Israel has threatened—to defend a free, democratic nation—investigation into his actions, to tell the citizens from terrorist attacks in the West Bank and Gaza,” Bolton plans. “It has also been a proposal that the ICC investigate Israeli construction of settlements on the West Bank.”
The United States that do not currently recognize to recognize the Palestinian territories as an independent state, although the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in 2012 of Palestine as a “non-member observer state.”
Heather Nauert, a spokeswoman for the U.S. state Department, said on Monday that the announcement of no change in the U.S. position that direct negotiations are the way to forge a peace deal, but warned the PLO against any rash actions.
“The United States, Nauert said, continues to believe that direct negotiations between the two parties are the only way forward,” in a statement. “With this action, should not be exploited to act by those who try, like spoilers, to distract from the imperative to reach a peace agreement. We do not retreat from our efforts to achieve a lasting and comprehensive peace.”
The closure of the PLO mission in Washington almost certainly be stiffening the opposition of the Palestinians against any peace plan to work on all of Trump’s Middle East point men, Jared Kushner, and Jason Greenblatt.
The Palestinian leadership was open to bias hostile to any proposal from the administration, citing what it says, a pro-Israel.
A Senior Palestinian diplomat Saeb Erekat said the U.S. decision was designed “for the protection of the Israeli crime,” and added that the move would not stop the Palestinian legal action against Israel.
“We reaffirm that the rights of the Palestinian people for the sales, that said we don’t succumb to US threats and bullying”,” Erekat said in a statement. “Accordingly, we continue to be the International criminal asking the court of justice, to the immediate investigation of Israel’s crimes.”
A Problem the USA had with the Palestinian authority, his scholarship had paid to the families of Palestinians killed, injured or imprisoned for attacks on Israel. Israel and the trump administration have repeatedly demanded the payments from a so-called “martyrs ‘ Fund” to be stopped, because they promote terrorism. PA President Mahmoud Abbas has refused to do so.
The State Department announced earlier this month that the United States end its decades-long funding for the U. N. Agency that helps Palestinian refugees. A week earlier, the administration has slashed bilateral U.S. aid for projects in the West Bank and Gaza.
The United States supplies almost 30 percent of the total budget of the U. N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA, and demanding reforms in the way had to run, how to do it. The Department said in a written statement of the United States “will not commit additional funds for this irredeemably faulty operation.” The decision cuts nearly $300 million of the planned assistance.
In addition to Monday’s announcement, and the previous payment of aid, the Trump administration, a further blow to the Palestinians addressed again in may, when the United States moved its Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to embattled Jerusalem.
On the day of the message, opened in Israel killed more than 60 Palestinians, including a 14-year-old girl, during the protests that followed. It was the bloodiest day since the war between Hamas and Israel ended in the year of 2014.
Israel said it was defending its borders and accuses Hamas, the Islamic militant group that rules Gaza, who are trying to attacks under the guise of protests.
