Trump Regime Closes Jerusalem Consulate Serving Palestinians

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

The Trump regime's one-sided support for Israel is deplorably hard-edged.

Earlier this year, it cut off most US funding for Palestinians. All funding through UNRWA for its refugee population ended, a flagrant assault on their rights and welfare.

In September, the State Department closed the PLO office in Washington after operating for 24 years.

At the time, John Bolton said closure was because "Palestinians refusing to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel" – a bald-faced lie. 

It's because Palestinians haven't unconditionally surrendered to unacceptable US and Israeli demands. The move severed formal US diplomatic relations with Palestinians.

Trump regime hardliners want Palestinians severely punished for refusing to abandon their fundamental rights.
