'Abbas at United Nations behaved like an angry child'

Speaking at the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday for the first time since 2009, the 82-year-old delivered a speech that included the same previous rhetoric of rejecting violence and accepting negotiations with Israel as the only way forward. Twenty thousand new work permits will be issued under the plan, raising the total number of PA laborers in pre-1967 Israel to 100,000. "Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths", she said, in a no-nonsense challenge referring to Erekat's insult of the ambassador, calling her "impudent" and ordering her to cease her attacks against Abbas.

"I spoke with some restaurant owners who had come to me asking what they could do if all of their [illegal immigrant] workers from Eritrea and Sudan were deported".

She added that the U.S. offers an "outstretched hand" to the Palestinian people but "we will not chase after you". Israel considers the entire city, including the eastern sector, to be its undivided capital.

Abbas accused Israel of "acting as a State above the law".

In his speech to the United Nations on Tuesday, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas will confront the USA decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. The Arab states have a crucial role to play, both in incentivizing the Israelis to make sacrifices for peace, and in supporting the Palestinians in concluding a conflict-ending agreement with Israel. "Is it for the two-state solution, or for one-state?"

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres stressed that "there is no Plan B" to a two-state solution.

Trump administration officials nonetheless made clear that there was no retreat from the USA recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital made by the American president in December.

Abbas had come to the United States to address the U.N. Security Council on February 20 and had been expected to head to Venezuela for an official visit the next day. Danon said Abbas is always welcome to directly negotiate with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but chooses not to.

"You can choose to denounce the United States, reject the USA role in peace talks and pursue punitive measures against Israel in global forums like the UN", Haley said.

Abbas said the conference should include the Palestinians, Israel, the five permanent UN Security Council members - the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France - and the United Nations.

Following the declaration, the Palestinian Authority said that the USA is no longer fit to mediate in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, while the U.S. threatened to cut off UNRWA funding for Palestinian refugees, and to any country that votes against the Jerusalem resolution at the United Nations.
