President Trump’s National Security Adviser, John Bolton, has declared that the Palestinian Liberation Organization will be expelled from Washington. Fox News reports:
The Trump administration announced Monday that it is closing the Palestinian Liberation Organization’s mission in Washington, following attempts by the group to get an international court to prosecute Israel for alleged war crimes.
The announcement marks the latest blow by the United States against the Palestinians amid a stalled Mideast peace process.
“The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court,” National Security Adviser John Bolton plans to say during a Monday afternoon speech to the Federalist Society. “The United States will always stand with our friend and ally, Israel.”
Bolton is addressing the PLO decision in that speech, saying “The Trump administration will not keep the office open when the Palestinians refuse to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel.”
The ICC’s globalist agenda will be curtailed, and Israel will be supported.
