Palestinians: The Secret West Bank

Hizb ut Tahrir in Ramallah West Bank

Westerners often refer to Ramallah as a modern and liberal city dominated by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction. The city boasts fancy restaurants and bars where alcohol is served freely to men and women in Western dress, who sit together to eat and to smoke water pipes (nargilas).

But the scenes on the streets of Ramallah, headquarters of Abbas’s Palestinian Authority (PA) last week broadcast a rather different message — one that calls for the elimination of Israel. The message came on the eve of Abbas’s visit to the White House for his first meeting with US President Donald Trump.

According to PA officials, Abbas is scheduled to affirm during the meeting with Trump his commitment to the two-state solution and a “comprehensive and just peace” with Israel.

    According to Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post, Trump will be giving Abbas three months to clean up his act with regard to his cash payments to terrorists and teaching Jew hate in schools or the U.S. will cut off funding to the PA and terminate the peace process.
