PLO orders plans to be made for 'disengaging' from Israel

The Palestinian leadership has become increasingly frustrated with the American administration, particularly since President Donald Trump's controversial recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel, in a break with decades of worldwide consensus that the city's fate should be decided in peace talks.

The PCC gave instructions to the government to start putting strategic plans to sever ties with Israel on all levels, and chose to go to the UN Security Council and General Assembly.

Erekat continued accusing the USA and Israel of having the goal to "undermine the Palestinian national project" as they search for Palestinian leaders who will accept the "liquidation of the Palestinian national project".

It called on the U.S.to "stop hatred speech" against the Palestinians and "stop using the blackmail and threats policies" in dealing with the Palestinian side.

After Abbas gave a speech last month that denied the Jewish historical connection to Israel and blasted the Trump administration's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, Haley responded in a speech at the United Nations.

Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy to the divided city has upended decades of U.S. policy and prompted Abbas to reject any US-led peace efforts.

"President Abbas declared the landmark Oslo Peace Accords dead. Where is the Palestinian Anwar Sadat?" she continued, paying homage to the Jordanian and Egyptian leaders who made peace with Israel.

For its part, Israel has said it will only work with a US-led peace process. But Erekat said that they aren't the ones being confrontational. "On the contrary - they are the ones taking several steps".

"The U.S. administration is itself saying that it's not an honest broker in the peace process", Erekat added. "His recent actions demonstrate the total opposite". "Therefore, we are seeking, together with global parties, to convene an worldwide conference for peace".
