Palestinian official to Ambassador Haley: “Shut up!” (CIDI)

From the desk of Mat Staver

Palestinian provocations and direct insults show why the Trump administration and Congress must take long overdue action to cut all taxpayer-funded aid to the Palestinians now. But that won't happen unless friends of Israel like you speak out immediately!

First, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas insulted President Donald Trump, using one of the most deeply offensive curses in Arab culture. 

Now a senior PLO leader has attacked United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, calling her "impudent" and saying she should "shut up."

"Nikki Haley needs to shut up and realize that the Palestinian leadership is not the problem," PLO Secretary General Saab Erekat charged several days ago. "… The problem is the Israeli occupation."

U.S. Ambassador Haley has been a powerful voice in the United Nations on behalf of U.S. international interests and in calling out the U.N. body for ongoing anti-Semitic policies.

PLO leader Erekat's ugly remarks were in reaction to Ambassador Haley's rebuke of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' statements in which Abbas "[D]eclared the landmark Oslo Peace Accords dead. He rejected any American role in peace talks. He insulted the American President. He called for suspending recognition of Israel."

Erekat's disrespect for the ambassador and the Trump administration's policies is further indication of the Palestinian leadership's blatant disregard for the billions of dollars of aid money the United States has provided to their people.

That is why Christians in Defense of Israel is calling for a complete halt to all aid to the Palestinian Authority UNTIL there is accountability, a verifiable end to payments to terrorists, and the Palestinian Authority agrees to talk peace in the Middle East!

But to make this happen I am asking you to act now.

+ + Erekat plans to take the matter to court!

The Palestinians are using all means to discredit the Trump administration's announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital city of Israel and the relocation of our embassy there in 2019.

Doubling down, Erekat declared, "We will take Trump's decision to the International Court of Justice and we will seek membership in more international agencies."

+ + The issue is far greater than the status of Jerusalem!

The greatest obstacle to "peace" in Israel is the all-consuming Palestinian goal to eliminate "the occupiers" of the land they believe is theirs — Israel.

Meanwhile, U.S. "aid" money continues to flow to Palestinian leaders who have rejected our call to stop their "Pay to Slay" policy. In 2017, the Palestinian Authority paid a reported $348 million to terrorists and their families. 

Last month, a senior Palestinian official, Fatah Deputy Chairman Mahmoud al-Aloul, trashed U.S. aid to the Palestinians and encouraged his people to increase their resistance against the Jewish state. 

U.S. policy makers must realize that we are throwing away taxpayer dollars which are used to fund terror.

P.S. Our Defund the Palestinian Authority petition states:

I join with many other pro-Israel Americans in calling for the United States Government to DEFUND the Palestinians until there is actual accountability, a verifiable cessation of payments to terrorists, and the Palestinian Authority agrees to talk peace in the Middle East! 

No more "Pay to Slay!"
