Saeb Erekat said yet another absurd statement that the Western media accepts as if it makes sense.
For years the “Palestinian leadership has engaged in good faith in numerous meetings and encounters with the US administration,” said Saeb Erekat, the longtime senior Palestinian negotiator, after a meeting of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s political committee in Ramallah.
“Now, he is threatening to starve Palestinian children in refugee camps and deny their natural rights to health and education if we don’t endorse his terms and dictations,” Erekat said, referring to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Only the fake Palestinian “refugees” get free healthcare and education from a UN agency. All real refugees get far, far less from the UNHCR.
But Erekat is claiming that the US threatening to attach strings to the billions it has given the Palestinians is a violation of human rights!
It gets worse. The Fatah Facebook page is directly threatening the US, saying that it will be isolated internationally:
The Palestinians are a people under occupation and do not have the slightest strength, neither economic nor military, but they reduced your international presence, isolated you and dwarfed your role! The next is the internationalization of the conflict and the escalation of the popular resistance of the civilian and Palestinian national unity.

In English they claim that the money is needed for food and try to appeal to receive it for moral reasons. In Arabic they are more clear – they want to extort it.
So here is how Erekat and the Palestinian leadership has viewed the “peace process” since Oslo:
