Abbas threatens U.S. with ‘terrorists’

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley

President Trump hasn’t been pleased with the Palestinians’ refusal to consider compromises to achieve Middle East peace.

So he’s decided to withhold tens of millions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer funding from the Palestinian Authority.

And what answer does he get?

The threat of terrorism.

Bloomberg reported the recent threat to the United Nations Security Council from Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who also demanded that Trump designate Jerusalem, which the president recognized in December as Israel’s capital, as a capital for “Palestine.”

Abbas, who renewed a demand for a conference this year to seek a Mideast accord, has warned he will not meet with U.S. officials until the Jerusalem embassy decision is reversed.

He went far beyond that, though.

“He finished his address with a warning – which others may read as a threat – of violence unless the U.S. restores funds that were cut to the UN Relief
