Trump's Move to Slash Palestinian Cash: What It Means for Future Talks

The blood-curdling threat comes just weeks after President Trump officially declared USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

IS is accusing the Palestinian militant group of cracking down on jihadists and not taking a stronger stance against the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

"UNRWA is an organisation that perpetuates the problem of the Palestinian refugees", he said.

"Israel is complicit in the deliberate downgrading of living conditions in the Strip", said Gisha, an Israeli not-for-profit whose goal is to protect the freedom of movement of Palestinian Authority Arabs.

The decision to restore the power came after a request last week from the Palestinians, who said they would resume payments even though Hamas has not relinquished control of the region.

The PLO recognised Israel and signed Oslo peace agreements in 1993, where Israel recognised the PLO as the representative of the Palestinians.

"It achieves the same goal", he said.

"The general trend is to focus on how to deal with the emerging situation, considering Palestine as a state under occupation and requesting full United Nations membership for Palestine, which requires extensive global support", he said.

The PLO Central Council is expected to convene the meeting - under the banner "Jerusalem is Palestine's eternal capital" - on January 14.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Middle East conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel - might eventually serve as the capital of an independent Palestinian state. President trump self-declared ultimate deal between the Israelis and Palestinians was a wrench in his government's obligation to have the peace process restarted.

Under the previous Israeli-Palestinian peace accord, the status of Jerusalem should be determined through the final-status talk between Israel and the Palestinians. Palestinian officials shunned meetings with Trump's Mideast peace negotiator Jason Greenblatt as well as Vice President Mike Pence.

The PLO is an umbrella group that includes most major Palestinian political factions, with the exception of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
