The Palestinian Authority just exposed – in Arabic – its plan to “punish” the United States. Yes, the PA decided that it would isolate the USA in international diplomacy. This is ridiculous. Of course, they said this in Arabic since they lie when they speak English to the Western media.
First of all, what other sign do we need in order for the United States to wake up? When will they realize that the Palestinian Authority is not a partner for “peace?” It is not even an entity for the USA to even engage with.
Second of all, this step shows just how stupid the leaders of the Palestinian Authority truly are. Do they really think they can punish the biggest superpower in the world? Do they think that they can isolate the USA in international diplomacy. Where do they come up with the idea that they can pressure the USA to get their way? You have to hear this for yourself from the mouth of the Foreign Minister of the Palestinian Authority, Riyad Al-Maliki.
PA “Slapping” the United States
Maliki was interviewed on Palestine TV on September 15. Al-Maliki said that Paraguay’s decision to move its embassy back to Tel Aviv was an important “slap” in the face of the American administration. He said that Palestine filed a complaint against the U.S. to the ICC for moving its embassy to Jerusalem. He claims that the embassy is on Palestinian land. Referring to a U.S. Congress resolution that said that the U.S. will leave any international organization joined by the Palestinians, Al-Maliki said that Palestine will “work towards joining all these organizations in order to make sure that the U.S. isolates itself.”
Unfortunately, such pressure might have worked under an Obama Presidency. But we are now in a different era. A Trump Presidency with advisers like Bolton, Pompeo and Mattis, will not bow to these kinds of threats.
