Ma’an reports that the Fatah Youth Movement has decided that all Palestinian universities should cut all ties to American programs, paid for by USAID, claiming that this is a “Palestinian national decision.’
According to the article, Al Quds Open University has announced that they will cut all forms of academic cooperation with the US.
Fatah posted a video showing a student taking down what is claimed to be a display from USAID at Al Quds University in Tulkarem.
The question is whether other Western countries will go along with this strategy. The UNSC resolution indicates that, regrettably, they will – publicly siding with the Palestinians no matter what.
They seem to forget that the US funds the bulk of the UN budget, as well as being the biggest source of the Palestinian budget.
