Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Dr Saeb Erekat said today that any deal, attempt or dictation that ignores the fact that Israel is an occupying power of the State of Palestine, will be recorded in history as the “fraud of the century”.
“Reminder to the International Community: Israel is an Occupying Power of the State of Palestine on the 1967 borders (East Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza Strip). Any deal, attempt or dictation that ignores this fact, will be recorded in history as the fraud of the century,” tweeted Erekat on Friday.
Erekat’s remarks came in response to what is being raised about the publication of the deal of the century soon, and Trump’s invitation to Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his rival in upcoming Israeli elections, Benny Gantz, to visit Washington next week for a meeting on the US-led long-awaited Middle East peace plan.
He stressed that what the Trump administration has done so far, and the full partnership with Netanyahu will enter history as the fraud of the century against international law, UN resolutions, and the terms of reference of the peace process.
