The Trump administration is preparing executive orders that would clear the way to drastically reduce the United States’ role in the United Nations and other international organizations, as well as begin a process to review and potentially abrogate certain forms of multilateral treaties.We know that terror apologists will attack this by claiming that the PLO and PA aren't terror groups.
The first of the two draft orders, titled “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations” and obtained by The New York Times, calls for terminating funding for any United Nations agency or other international body that meets any one of several criteria.
Those criteria include organizations that give full membership to the Palestinian Authority or Palestine Liberation Organization, or support programs that fund abortion or any activity that circumvents sanctions against Iran or North Korea. The draft order also calls for terminating funding for any organization that “is controlled or substantially influenced by any state that sponsors terrorism” or is blamed for the persecution of marginalized groups or any other systematic violation of human rights.
So, just to make sure they have up to date information, here's a screenshot from the official PLO webpage showing part of a video they have in honor of the anniversary of the death of Ali Salameh, the "Red Prince," who was the leader of the Black September terror group that was behind the Olympics massacre.
I had already shown that the PA officially mourned Salameh.
But this video starts off with photos of lots of other terrorist "martyrs" from many terror groups, not only Fatah. For example, PFLP founder George Habash - who was responsible for numerous airplane hijackings in the 1970s - is featured.
In the place of honor next to Yasir Arafat (the founding father of modern terrorism) is the founder of Hamas, Sheikh Yassin. No matter what Jimmy Carter may believe, Hamas is universally recognized as a terror group, today.
So, yes, the PLO supports terror. Just because the West has gotten used to sending them money for the past few decades doesn't change that fact.
Any objective observer would know that the Oslo process was essentially abrogated by the PLO's decision to start a war against Israeli Jewish civilians in 2000 instead of negotiate peace.
It is more than acceptable to stop treating the PLO like they are honored members of the world community - it is mandatory.
