Skip to comments.Trump freezes PA's bank accounts [Palestinian Authority]
Posted on 09/16/2018 5:09:41 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The United States is intensifying its pressure on the Palestinian Authority (PA). The Al-Jazeera network reported on Sunday evening that the US administration has decided to immediately close all bank accounts linked to the PA or the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) in banks across the United States.
The US is not confirming the report at the moment, but the State Department hinted last week after the closure of the PLOs mission in Washington that there would be further steps against the Palestinian Arabs.
Earlier on Sunday, the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen television reported that the US ordered the PLO envoy to the US, Husam Zomlot, out of the country.
According to the report, the visas for Zomlot and his family were cancelled, their US bank accounts were closed, and he was ordered to leave.
The American authorities cancelled my visa and my familys visa, said Zomlot, and closed our bank accounts. Weve been ordered to leave Washington immediately.

Don’t worry, they still have plenty of money, Arafat has six billion tucked away. Wait, he’s dead—where did it go?
Thank you for specifying “Palestinian Authority.” Whenever I see PA, as a native of Pennsylvania, I think ‘what the hell is going on there?’
This will give John Kerry the vapors.
Good decision President Donald John Trump . This man in my opinion is the greatest President I have ever had the honor to vote for . My first vote was in 1979 at age 18 I voted for Reagan while a resident of Massachusetts .
The Price Is Right tuba
No, it’s the Port Authority. They richly deserve to be investigated!
Wow...who said there are not anymore feelgood stories! BEE! Almost as a feel good story when they blew up Arafats helicopter!!
You should think youre next , Henry
But ... but ... but. Then they wont like us anymore. /s
OH NOES now how will the PLO pay off Jihadists who murder Jews in Israel..guess they will have to find another way to get the money
Sometimes when there’s enough room in the headline field, I’m tempted to put “Palestinian Authority, not Pennsylvania”, although I seem to recall when I did that in the past, I got a few wisecracks.
Still not tired of it!
While I appreciate my President doing this I do fear for his safety. These people are terrorists as are the MS13 (even though both groups have”the spark of humanity in them”)
What was Reagan running for in 1979?
WHY ARE WE GIVING THESE TERRORISTS MONEY AND FREEDOM ANYWAY?
