PLO: Withdrawing Recognition of Israel not an Option Unless all Possible Means Fail

Palestine News & Info Agency - WAFA

RAMALLAH, December 26, 2011 (WAFA) - Hanan Ashrawi, member of the Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) Executive Committee said that taking a Palestinian decision to withdraw recognition of Israel will be the last option in case all other possible means fail.

Ashrawi told Voice of Palestine that the PLO’s decision to withdraw recognition of Israel has not been discussed.

She said that prosecuting Israel is the first step in response to the Israeli racist projects, including announcing Jerusalem as a capital of the Jewish people and escalating settlement activities.
