Palestine Liberation Organization Votes to Suspend Recognition of State of Israel

Jewish Currents

The Palestine Liberation Organization's central council has announced that it is suspending its recognition of the state of Israel, Middle East Eye reports.

In the decision, announced after a meeting late Monday, the PLO said it will halt all its commitments to the "occupation authorities" until Israel recognises a Palestinian state within the 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.

That includes security cooperations and trade agreements reached between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.

While the central council's decisions are not binding, it advises the PA on future policy decisions. PA President Mahmoud Abbas was present at the meeting.

The council also explicitly rebuked the Donald Trump-led peace process and his "Deal of the Century" plan to end the conflict.

 "The committee lauded the efforts of the president (Abbas) ... in continuing to reject the so-called Deal of the Century and confronting it with all available means to defeat it, as well as deeming the US administration a partner of the Israeli occupation government and a part of the problem, not the solution," the official Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.
