Trump retaliates against Abbas

1396/10/5 | 03:12
Debkafile, an Israeli website close to the military intelligence, has reported that the Trump administration has decided to take a series of punitive measures against the Palestinian Authority (PA) after its successful campaign on Jerusalem in the UN General Assembly.   In a report issued on 23 December, the Israeli website cited its sources in Washington as stating that President Trump had decided to sever contacts and relations with the PA and President Mahmoud Abbas.   According to Debkafile, the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan ...

1396/10/4 | 03:12
  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan have threatened Palestinian President that if he does not follow the footsteps of American President Donald Trump, Palestinian financial aid will be stopped.   Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan have threatened Palestinian President Mahmous Abbas to stop Palestinian financial support in the event of not complying with US President Donald Trump’s plan. The report ...

70% of Palestinians want Abbas to resign immediately

1396/9/23 | 03:12
Some 70 per cent of Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip want President Mahmoud Abbas to resign immediately, according to a new poll by the Palestinian Centre for Policy and Survey Research conducted 7-10 December.   The poll, conducted in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) in the immediate aftermath of US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, makes grim reading for Abbas, with those demanding his resignation up three points from September.   Abbas’ ...

Saudi: Palestinian Abbas must endorse US’ plan or leave

1396/8/28 | 03:12
  Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman has told Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that he has to back Donald Trump’s Israeli-Palestinian peace deal or resign. According to Israeli sources Abbas was offered an ultimatum after he was summoned to Riyadh last week for a meeting with Bin Salman days after Us Presidential advisor Jared Kushner made an unannounced visit to the Saudi capital to meet the young crown prince. The two are reported to have thrashed out a plan in which Abbas seems to have had no say. Riyadh had offered ...

The EU context for increasing financial aid to Palestine

1396/7/21 | 03:12
  We might be excused for assuming that the only party involved in the reconciliation talks is the Palestinian Authority. Since Hamas announced its willingness to commit to political unity, PA Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and President Mahmoud Abbas have been hailed by international institutions as beacons of progress and change.   There has been no mention of how, since Israel’s massacre of civilians in Gaza in 2014, this state of affairs was a top priority for the US. That Gaza should come under the PA is not a novel proposal; ...

Combating the PA’s manipulation of humanitarian aid

1396/6/2 | 03:12
  The Palestinian Authority’s penchant for divisive politics plumbed to new lows after Foreign Minister Riyad Al-Maliki announced the delivery of three truckloads of medical supplies to Venezuela. Social media reacted harshly as the PA exploited the suffering of the people in Venezuela and Gaza, pointing out — rightly so — the inconsistency of aiding one nation while driving Palestinians in the besieged coastal enclave toward an even more catastrophic humanitarian disaster.     For several weeks, PA leader Mahmoud Abbas ...

Palestinian Authority Threatens to Cut All Gaza Funds

1396/5/31 | 03:12
Seeking to increase pressure on Hamas to transfer control over the Gaza Strip to him, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has told members of Israel’s Meretz Party that if Hamas doesn’t comply, he intends to cut all funding to the besieged strip.   Abbas said he’d already cut some 25% from the annual $1.5 billion in Gaza spending, and that he is prepared to “gradually” increase that amount in the future. He added that he was totally willing to go up to a 100% cut, defunding the strip outright. Abbas tried to make ...

Inner conflicts: Is PA committing treason to Palestine cause?

1396/5/19 | 03:12
  Fissures within the Palestinian camp also need to be addressed to form a united front against the Israeli occupation and to secure the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights.  In this regard, Mahmoud Abbas’s recent statement to step up sanctions on Gaza — ruled by Fatah’s rival Hamas — is unfortunate. While many states recognise the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority based in the West Bank as the ‘genuine leadership’ of the Palestinians, Hamas has been running Gaza’s affairs since it took over the tiny coastal strip in ...

Abbas Visits Egypt to Try to Derail Hamas Rapprochement

1396/4/21 | 03:12
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has made an “emergency” visit to Cairo this weekend to meet with Egypt junta leader Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, seeking “clarification” on Egypt’s growing rapprochement with Hamas, and hoping to derail the move. Egypt recently reopened the Gaza border crossing, which threatens to derail Abbas’ efforts to destabilize the Gaza Strip and try to force Hamas to relinquish control. The risks have gotten even bigger for Abbas, however, with key rival Mohammed Dahlan now working on a power-sharing ...

Abbas’ siege on Gaza: The goals and the financial benefits

1396/4/11 | 03:12
  Since Hamas’ victory in the parliamentary elections on 25 January 2006, the president of the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, has been collaborating with the forces of the occupation to place Gaza under siege for approximately ten years now.   These endeavours – directly or indirectly – have been aiming to suffocate Palestinian resistance and any potential to establish a viable and independent Palestinian state. Abbas’ latest measures, which include cutting the salaries of the families of martyrs and the wounded, as well as all employees, ...

Israel Cuts Gaza Electricity at Abbas’ Request

1396/3/25 | 03:12
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ effort to cut electricity to the Gaza Strip as a means of “pressuring” Hamas to hand over control of the region to him is finally getting support from Israel’s security cabinet, which today signed off on a plan to cut exports to the Gaza Strip by 40%, meaning about 45 minutes less of electricity per day in a strip that already is in a state of blackout more than three-quarters of the time.     Abbas had originally sought a 100% cut in Gaza’s electricity, but Israel refused, citing ...

Mahmoud Abbas on 3-day visit to India

1396/2/29 | 03:12
    This is his fifth visit to India since he became president of Palestinian Authority after the death of PLO chairman Yasser Arafat in 2005. During his stay in New Delhi, he is scheduled to meet Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, Indian president Pranab Mukherjee and country’s foreign minister.     Abbas is scheduled to appraise the Indian leaders of his view of the so-called 2-state solution which is totally different than Gaza-ruling Islamic Hamas resistance group. Last year, commenting on Narendra Modi’s ...

Hamas’s gamble: Did Hamas put the ball in Israel’s court?

1396/2/23 | 03:12
  Hamas made headlines last week by releasing a new political document, with many hoping it could help usher a more hopeful phase in the longstanding occupation of Palestine by Israel.      Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal took to a podium in Doha to announce that Hamas would be open to accepting a Palestine based on the 1967 borders. The change in strategy came as a surprise to most international observers but seems to be the result of much deliberation within the Hamas leadership.   Hamas’s new political document suggests ...

Ending Oslo accord: Would world powers hear the voice of Palestinians?

1394/7/14 | 03:12
 Mahmoud Abbas has said Palestinians will “no longer continue to be bound” by the Oslo accords unless they receive “international protection” from Israel.Speaking at the UN general assembly in New York, the Palestinian president said the 20-year-old peace agreements needed updating and were not workable if they remained one-sided. Watched stony-faced by the Israeli delegation led by ambassador Ron Prosor, Abbas on Wednesday called for the international community to recognise Palestine as a state under occupation in the same way that ...
