PLO terror group calls for suspension of recognition of Israel 25 years after first Oslo Accords

Arab leaders in the PLO terror group Central Council voted on Monday for the suspension of recognition of Israel and call for terrorism against Israel “in all forms”, 25 years after the signing of the first Oslo Accords, which established the PA on the basis of mutual recognition.

While withdrawing the Palestine Liberation Organization’s recognition of Israel could spark international backlash, it was unclear whether the vote was binding.

A previous vote by the same terror group Central Council, a high-ranking arm of the PLO terror group, in 2015 to suspend security coordination with Israel was never implemented. That vote was also reaffirmed on Monday.

However, even if the move goes no further, the vote was another expression of Arab fury, this time over President Trump’s Jerusalem declaration.

On Sunday as he opened the meeting, Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, who voted in favor of the suspension, lashed out at President Trump over recent policy moves.

Abbas, who is just completing the 13th year of his 4-year term, said to Trump: “Yehreb Beitak,” which literally translates as “may your house be destroyed.”

The PLO is considered the official representative of the Palestinian Authority internationally and formalized its recognition of Israel in 1993.

In a statement, the terror group delegates also backed comments on Sunday by Abbas that the Oslo peace accords of the early 1990s, which form the basis of the Palestinians’ relations with Israel, were “finished.”

There was no immediate Israeli reaction to the vote, but earlier Monday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Abbas’ comments had “torn off” his “mask” as a supposed moderate.

Hamas, the Islamist terror group that runs Gaza and does not recognize Israel, appeared to welcome the vote but said in a statement that the “real test” would be “to implement it effectively on the ground and put in place the necessary mechanisms.”

  1. SO, is this THE END of the stupid game of hope these people who originally escaped Israel were/are hoping to take it from us?!
    These idiots are back to the same loosing corner of starting with unreasonable demands.

    The fact is that the new Israel is now 70 years old and Palestine is 0 years old.
    The truth is, that lies do not get anyone anything other then fools’ hope.
