Palestinians Threaten to ‘Put on Hold’ All Communications With Trump Administration

(CNSNews.com) – Two months after Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas called publicly for Israeli officials to be tried by the International Criminal Court, the Trump administration, in line with U.S. law, is threatening to close the Palestinian mission in Washington – and the P.A. is furious.

The move is in striking contrast to the previous administration’s dealing with the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) office in D.C., which in 2010 President Obama allowed to upgrade its name to PLO Delegation to the United States and to fly the Palestinian flag there.  A waiver has enabled the PLO to maintain an office in Washington for the past 23 years.
