Truly catastrophic. How will we possibly conduct diplomatic relations with the terrorists if they won’t even talk to us.
Here’s the official tantrum of the PLO boss.
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas announced on Saturday that he has decided to severe all relations with Israel and the US in protest against President Donald Trump’s recently unveiled plan for Mideast peace.
“We have informed the Israelis and Americans of this decision through two letters,” Abbas said in a speech at an emergency meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo.
The first letter, he said, was delivered to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while the second one was handed to the director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Why the CIA? Who knows. We’re not dealing with the smartest guys around.
Abbas confirmed that he refused to accept phone calls and letters from Trump before the announcement of the plan.
“It’s as if I came from the Moon,” Abbas said. “If you want to make a deal, I should be your first partner. He wanted to send me the plan to read it. I refused to accept it. I refused to take Trump’s phone calls. I also refused to accept any letters from him.”
I want to be your partner. Also I refuse to take your phone calls or letters.
That’s a summary of PLO negotiating tactics of the last generation.
