(Worthy News) – The Palestinian Authority has warned it will take steps against the US unless it fulfills promises President Joe Biden made to the PA during his election campaign, the Jewish News Syndicate (JNS) reports.
The PA issued its warning just ahead of Biden’s arrival in Israel today for a high-stakes visit to the Middle East, which will include a meeting with the Palestinian leadership.
According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), PA leader Mahmoud Abbas and other Palestinian leaders came away angry and disappointed from meetings with US officials intended to prepare for Biden’s visit, JNS reports.
The Palestinians are understood to have been left with the impression that the US promises to them would not be kept.
The Palestinian demands include removing the Palestine Liberation Organization from the U.S. Congress list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, reopening the PLO mission in Washington, reopening the U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem, and renewing US financial aid, JNS said.
In his warning, Abbas reminded the US of the PA’s actions against Israel, JNS reports. “When [then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu decided to install magnetometers at the entrances to Al-Aqsa [mosque], we suspended the security coordination,” Abbas said in a statement.
