Al Quds al-Arabi reports that PLO, Fatah plan to push for a unilateral abrogation of all Oslo and Road Map commitments, including fighting terror, in response to failed peace talks. The Palestinian Authority will stop coordinating its security with Israel, in response to the US's official announcement that peace talks have failed, Al Quds al-Arabi reported on Friday.
Khana Amira, a PLO official, told the UK newspaper that the PA is also considering canceling its other commitments to Israel, including the Oslo Accords and the Road Map, which demand that terror organizations will stop.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, a senior PLO official and an adviser to PA President Mahmoud Abbas reportedly plans to convene a meeting with the PLO and Fatah central committees on Friday afternoon, in order to make a new plan for the Palestinians.
Palestinian officials told Al Quds al-Arabi that they expect US President Barack Obama to attempt to restart peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians.
"Maybe the meeting will give the American government another chance," an official told the paper.
The Palestinians are also considering seeking the UN Security Council's recognition of a Palestinian state on all the Palestinian territories that were captured by Israel in 1967.
In October, Abed Rabbo warned that the PA would unilaterally abrogate the Oslo Accords if the peace process broke down.
We cant remain committed to the agreements that were signed with Israel forever, he said. One party cant remain committed while the other party has violated the agreements and even canceled them.
Government sources in Jerusalem were unfazed by Abed Rabbos threat at the time.
We hear these sorts of things now and again from the Palestinians, that Abbas will resign, they are going to dismantle the PA, that they are going to take everything to the UN, that they are going to give up on a twostate solution, one government source said.
But it is not serious. Everyone understands that the only way to achieve peace is through direct negotiations, everything else is not serious, the source said.
Thanks SJackson and HearMe.
I love all these great comments here.
:’) Yeah, the headline is one of those textbook examples of “irony”.
“OK, are they also going to to return the hundreds of millions we gave them for agreeing to Oslo?”
First Suha Arafat would have to return all the merchandise she bought in Paris with it.
“Isnt it great that US General Dalton trained Pali forces and the US armed them?”
It didn’t help the 443 Three who murdered Michael Cohen, father of ten, then hid behind their own wives. An IDF sniper sprayed their gray despite this cravenness.
