Abbas Wants a President Biden to Prioritize Palestinian Cause

November 10, 2020

In a statement released on Sunday, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas congratulated self-declared president-elect Joe Biden and called on him to “strengthen the Palestinian-American relationship,” including reversing the U.S. embassy move.

“I look forward to working with President-elect Joe Biden and his administration to strengthen the Palestinian-American relationship and achieve freedom and independence, justice and dignity for our people, as well as work for peace, stability and security for all in our region and the world,” Abbas wrote.

PA Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh said Abbas is ready for “immediate engagement” with the U.S. if their terms are met. He expressed his hope that the Biden transition team will place the Palestinian cause on “their list of priorities.” The Palestinian “cause” would include a demand that the U.S. reopen the diplomatic mission in Washington D.C. and renew American aid to the Palestinians, which Trump stopped over their payments to terrorists and their families.

The larger Palestinian “cause,” of course, is the eradication of the state of Israel “from the river to the sea.” The Palestinians hate President Trump, who is arguably America’s most pro-Israel President ever.
