Mahmoud Abbas describes Trump's Middle East peace plan 'slap of the century'

Palestinian shot dead by Israeli army in West Bank officials Mahmoud Abbas describes Trump's Middle East peace plan 'slap of the century'

The same proposal was reportedly voiced by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman during his meeting with Abbas in November, sparking anger among Palestinians.

"The deal of the century is the slap of the century and we will not accept it", the 82-year-old added, referring to Mr Trump's pledge to reach the "ultimate deal" between the Palestinians and Israelis.

Abbas sharply escalated his rhetoric in a speech on Sunday, lashing out at Trump over recent policy moves, such as recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

In 1993 the PLO recognised Israel before signing a number of agreements, which established the Palestinian Authority. "Palestine will freeze the Oslo accords, the provisions of which are not implemented by Israel, including about the coordination in the sphere of security", Shaath said Monday. If you have noticed we haven't put up a paywall unlike many news organisations, - as we want to keep our journalism open.

Abbas's statements came just over a week after Trump threatened to cut off aid to the Palestinian government over their response to Trump's announcement on Jerusalem, attacking the Palestinian Authority in a series of tweets.

But if Trump had actually said that in his speech at the White House last month - which he (presumably deliberately) didn't, it would have caused much less adverse reaction, one that has already resulted in tens of Palestinian deaths in demonstrations and a deterioration in the security situation in the region.

Israeli media focused heavily on the phrase yesterday, while Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said the statement showed Abbas was "losing his wits and giving up negotiations".

Expedia, Inc. (EXPE) Declares Quarterly Dividend of $0.28

Trump, however, had special ire against the Palestinians, who not only criticised his decision on Jerusalem but declared that, because of it, Washington could no longer be considered an honest broker in the peace process.

"I am saying that Oslo, there is no Oslo", he said.

He also stressed the Central Council's rejection of any ideas that are being circulated "as part of the so-called deal of the century, because they violate worldwide law and global community resolutions, and seek to impose a deficient solution that does not meet the minimum of Palestinians' legitimate rights".

The council did say that efforts to work toward reconciliation should carry on, and that the Palestinian National Council should be convened by year's end to act to advance elections for both Palestinian presidency and the parliament.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin condemned Abbas for the remarks, which provided justification for dubbing him a Holocaust denier.

Most recently, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has threatened to cut funding to the UN's Palestinian refugee relief agency (UNRWA) if the Palestinians fail to return to the negotiating table.

Israel claims the whole of the city as its capital. And we have now said "no" to Trump and others.
