    PA may unrecognize Israel

    It was a historic day for the Middle East and a U.S.-backed effort to bring peace. On Sept. 9, 1993, the Palestine Liberation Organization recognized “the right of the State of Israel to exist in peace and security.”

    Now, more than two decades later — as U.S. Vice President Mike Pence prepares to visit the region — Palestinian leaders are threatening to take back that decision.

    The PLO is examining whether “you can rescind recognition,” said Hanan Ashrawi, a prominent lawyer on the group’s executive committee. “You can suspend or cease relations, but we are examining if revocation can be done.”

    At issue is President Trump’s announcement last month that the United States would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv.

    That would reverse decades of U.S. policy and reduce prospects of the two-state solution, the long-held international consensus that any peace deal would include creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. Palestinian leaders have never accepted Israeli rule over all of Jerusalem and insist that East Jerusalem be the capital of any future Palestinian state.

    In an interview this week with “Voice of Palestine” radio, Palestinian chief negotiator Saeb Erekat said that Trump’s announcement “removed Jerusalem from negotiations” and that the Palestinian Authority would reject any and all proposals for peace negotiations with Israel until the U.S. “decision on Jerusalem is annulled.”

    “Our peace will not be at any price,” he said.

    Since you responded, you must care, one way or another.
    And it appears as though you are an opponent of peace.

    Opponent of peace? There hasn't been peace in the region since 1948. What makes you think that there will be peace if we leave the embassy in Tel Aviv?

    If the PA does indeed withdraw recognition, it is further evidence that the PA is the opponent of peace.
