Saudi reiterates support to Palestinian State establishment

Serious mistake to cut US aid to Palestinians

Serious mistake to cut US aid to Palestinians

According to a report by Israel's Hadashot news, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has suggested rerouting U.S. funds from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) to another UN body, with the funds still earmarked for Palestinian aid, allowing the USA to follow through on its threat to slash aid funding while also preventing deteriorating humanitarian conditions in the Palestinian territories - especially the impoverished Gaza Strip.

Speaking with Sputnik Radio's Loud & Clear about Trump's threat to axe funding to the Palestinians, cofounder of The Electronic Intifada, Ali Abumimah, said it would be important to determine whether the funding cuts would hit UNRWA or the Palestinian Authority.

"It also perpetuates the right of return narrative in order to eliminate the state of Israel", he added. "[But] after that, this thing will become a reality".

Amman is concerned that potential unrest in the Palestinian territories could spill over into Jordan, which has a sizeable Palestinian population that originally flooded into the country in the aftermath of the 1948 and 1967 wars.

UNRWA's spokesperson Chris Gunness said that "UNRWA is mandated by the UN General Assembly, which gives it broad and strong support for its humanitarian mission".

"What perpetuates the refugee crisis is the failure of the parties to deal with the issue".

Israel disputes that its settlements are illegal and says their future should be determined in peace talks with the Palestinians.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence will visit Egypt, Jordan and Israel from January 20 to 23, the White House said on Monday, embarking on a tour originally planned for last month after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Democrats say Americans want Trump impeached - here's what new poll says
The November 15 national poll found latest massacre drives gun control support to new high; voters reject GOP tax plan 2-1. Regarding the nation's economy, 66 percent of respondents say it is "excellent" or "good", up from 63 percent last month.

The decision was a break from longstanding US policy and the path advocated by the United Nations, which sees Jerusalem's status as an issue to be resolved through negotiation.

"The United States and Israel do not really seek to negotiate with the Arabs or the Palestinians; they only want to impose their conditions by the force of money", he pointed out.

Trump first threatened to cut off aid to the PA on Tuesday, asking why Washington should make "any of these massive future payments" when the Palestinians were "no longer willing to talk peace".

It came as Palestinians protesting church land sales to Israelis scuffled with Palestinian police in Bethlehem as they tried to block the arrival of the Holy Land's Greek Orthodox patriarch for Christmas celebrations, AFP reported.
