Biden pledges to reopen PLO mission and resume US assistance to Palestinians

(May 6, 2020 / JNS) Former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Tuesday that if elected president, he would reopen the Palestine Liberation Organization Diplomatic Mission in Washington, D.C., and restore U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority.

The presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee also reiterated that he would reopen the U.S. consulate in eastern Jerusalem, which primarily serves the Palestinians.

“A priority now for the cause of Israeli-Palestinian peace should be resuming our dialogue with the Palestinians and pressing Israel not to take actions that make a two-state solution impossible,” Biden told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency in a statement.

I will reopen the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, find a way to reopen the PLO’s diplomatic mission in Washington, and resume the decades-long economic and security assistance efforts to the Palestinians that the Trump administration stopped.”

_The Trump administration has virtually cut off all U.S. assistance to the Palestinian Authority due to Ramallah’s “pay to slay” program, rewarding terrorists and their families._ The PLO mission was closed in October 2018.

  1. Dumb Dodo Joe Biden is at it again.

    Obama chose him as VP so he could have no intelligent being challenge him in office.

  2. Clearly a Biden presidency would not be good for Israel or the USA. Biden wants the terrorists to take up shop again in DC. Good start if you want to be the running for dumb potential presidents.

  3. At this point who cares whose presidency.
    All Jews should make aliyah, the Diaspora is being destroyed by its rulers who will be doing the same thing to the Jews.

  4. Disappointing. What does the USA get in return? Nothing. PA bites the hand that feeds. Will it resolve anything? No. Will it give Abbas anything? He’s 85, he’ll die first. Stop backin g loosers! UAE will hire Pals to continue construction in a yr or 2 instead of Pakis or Indians. They can pay their own way. Makes me ashamed to have been a Democrat. Fool. He’s looking backwards not forwards.
