US announces closure of
Palestinian mission in Washington

Press TV [Tehran, Iran], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 9/10/2018 4:48:06 PM

The US State Department has announced it is ordering the closure of the Washington mission of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), a move that has drawn strong reaction from Palestinians. "We have permitted the PLO office to conduct operations that support the objective of achieving a lasting, comprehensive peace between Israelis and the Palestinians since the expiration of a previous waiver in November 2017," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Monday. "However, the PLO has not taken steps to advance the start of direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel,” she stated.

Comments:
As I have recently stated, it is near impossible to get "all" the facts from any one source in the developing breakdown of peace in the Middle East. The Palestinians, who were allowed into the UN because of 0bama, wanted to use their position there to be an active agitator of Israel. The recent, being trying to take them to the ICC over what they claim are illegal settlements, and therefore a human rights violation. President Trump is not buying this, so he has ordered Bolton to warn the ICC to leave Israel, or anyone of our other allies, alone,

Good, but why are we getting this news from Tehran? And why is Cameron Diaz at the State Department announcing it?

The recent announcement of the $200 million cut in payments to the PLO Kleptocrats, and now this announcement are steps in the right direction.

They´ve been offered reasonable peace plans several times, and declined to seriously consider them. Arafat´s wife is living high on the hog (well, maybe not a hog) on the French Rivera from the fortune he amassed riding the "peace process" train. Tjey´re all a bunch of terrorist mobsters and have been for 70 years.

Good on you President Trump and SOS Pompeo.

Paris - French Polynesian President Edouard Fritch has said the leaders of the French collectivity of islands in the South Pacific lied to the population for three decades over the dangers of nuclear testing. From 1960 to 1996, France carried out 193 nuclear tests in French Polynesia. The images, such as a mushroom cloud over the Mururoa atoll, provoked international protests. "I´m not surprised that I´ve been called a liar for 30 years. We lied to this population that the tests were clean. We lied," Fritch told officials in the local assembly Thursday in footage broadcast by Tahiti Nui Television. France´s overseas ministry declined

Port Moresby, The United States will not back down from its trade dispute with China, and might even double its tariffs, unless Beijing bows to U.S. demands, Vice President Mike Pence said on Saturday. In a bluntly worded speech at an Asia Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) summit in Papua New Guinea, Pence threw down the gauntlet to China on trade and security in the region. "We have taken decisive action to address our imbalance with China," Pence declared. "We put tariffs on $250 billion in Chinese goods, and we could more than double that number." "The United States, though, will not change course until

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, announced his decision following a hearing in Washington. The judge said Acosta’s credentials would be returned immediately and reactivated to allow him access to the White House. CNN had asked the judge to force the White House to immediately hand back the credentials that give Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent, access to the White House complex for press

Washington - Mira Ricardel Fired: An hour after Melania Trump called for the sacking of deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel, the White House aide has been fired. The Wall Street Journal reports she was escorted out of the White House minutes ago. Only two hours before her dismissal, she attended a White House Diwali ceremony with Trump. (Tweet) (Snip) The reason that Melania Trump wants top national security aide Mira Ricardel fired apparently doesn’t have anything to do with policy. Instead, it is about a dispute over plane seating when the first lady visited Africa last month. Reuters has fleshed out some of

Gaza/Jerusalem - Palestinian militant groups in Gaza agreed on Tuesday to halt cross-border attacks immediately if Israel did the same, Palestinian officials said, after the most serious exchanges of aerial fire since a 2014 war. Since Monday, Israeli air strikes have killed seven Palestinians, at least five of them militants. Rocket attacks from Gaza killed a Palestinian man in Israel. "(Palestinian) factions have agreed to hold fire on condition Israel abides by this," said a Palestinian official familiar with Egyptian truce efforts. Another Palestinian official, asked when a ceasefire might start, said: "Immediately, should Israel reciprocate."

US National Security Advisor John Bolton has threatened to “squeeze” Iran’s economy “until the pips squeak,” just one week after Washington imposed a new round of crippling sanctions billed as the “toughest ever.” Speaking ahead of the ASEAN-US summit in Singapore, Bolton said that the Iranian government is already under “real pressure” and that the US would “significantly increase” the enforcement of sanctions. Bolton said there was “no doubt” that Iran has already begun looking for ways to evade sanctions, which hit the country’s oil, financial, shipping, nuclear and aviation industries. He added that Tehran

The Political-Security Cabinet concluded a seven-hour-long meeting on the security situation and the ongoing rocket fire from the Gaza Strip Tuesday. The ministers discussed the various options for responding to the massive rocket fire carried out by the terrorist organizations from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory over the past 24 hours. Over 400 rockets have been fired at Israel since Monday afternoon. However, a decision to embark on a large-scale military operation in the Gaza Strip is unlikely. Arab sources report that an Egyptian delegation that is due to arrive tomorrow in Israel to form a ceasefire agreement between

California Gov. Jerry Brown appears to have quietly admitted President Donald Trump´s suggestion about improving California forestry was correct and is now urging state lawmakers to loosen restrictive logging regulations put in place to appease environmentalists. The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that Brown is proposing one of the most significant changes to the state´s logging rules in nearly half a century. "Gov. Jerry Brown is proposing broad new changes to California’s logging rules that would allow landowners to cut larger trees and build temporary roads without obtaining a permit as a way to thin more forests across the state," the

Barack Obama trashed President Trump on Monday night while speaking about ways to mobilize Americans to bring about social change at an Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago. Arrogant Obama accused President Trump of ignoring the climate change hoax because he’s a racist with mommy issues. “The reason we don’t” invest in climate change policies, Obama said, “is because we are still confused, blind, shrouded with hate, anger, racism…mommy issues.” The audience of drones laughed after Obama trashed Trump. Obama stuttered as he continued to talk about himself and even bragged about being called “Spock.” “I mean, we — we are

Democrat Stacey Abrams isn´t backing down from her fight against what she calls voter suppression tactics and election mismanagement after losing the Georgia governor´s race. In fact, Abrams said she experienced the problems in her state firsthand — after nearly being denied a ballot during early voting. In an interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep, the Democratic gubernatorial nominee said that when she went to vote last month, a poll worker initially told her that she had requested an absentee ballot and couldn´t cast an in-person vote. Abrams replied that she never filed for an absentee ballot, and after

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming. Noonan should know by now that every auto-biographer blows his/her own trumpet.

In a lengthy, taped interview that aired on Sunday, Fox News´s Chris Wallace asked President Donald Trump some expected questions -- about the Mueller investigation, "fake news," the election, the Kashoggi murder, his divisive tone -- and then came something unexpected. Wallace wondered if Trump would try to amend the Constitution so he could serve a third term. The exchange began when Wallace asked the president to rank himself "in the pantheon of great presidents." "There is Lincoln and Washington, there´s FDR and Reagan. Do you make the top 10?" Wallace asked Trump. "I think I´m doing a great job," Trump said. "I would

The decision comes after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit to obtain additional information from Clinton and Director of Information Resource Management of the Executive Secretariat John Bentel. The watchdog group also wanted top Clinton aides and State Department officials, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills´, deposition videos made public. The lawsuit was part of a broader Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that came about in October 2016 when Clinton refused to

Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D) defeated incumbent GOP Rep. Mia Love by fewer than 700 votes in a hotly contested race for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, turning the district blue for the first time in six years. The race had been initially too close to call, with both McAdams and Love at different points taking a slight edge over each other. In the end, the Associated Press called the race for the Democrat on Nov. 20. Polls had showed McAdams with a slight edge over Love, with Sabato´s Crystal Ball shifting her race from a “toss-up” to “leans
