Most Palestinians Do Not Trust the PLO Threat about the Recognition of Israel

The Palestine Liberation Organization declared that it will withdraw its recognition of Israel following the US acceptance of Jerusalem as the capital of the Zionist state.

However, a poll by the Jerusalem Centre for Media and Communication has revealed that 56 percent of the Palestinians believe that the PLO would not commit to its threat to withdraw such recognition should the US and Israeli measures on Jerusalem go ahead, despite the pledges made by senior PLO officials to do so.

The center organized the poll after the Palestinian Central Council, the second largest of the PLO’s decision-making bodies, decided to ask the Executive Committee to suspend its recognition of Israel until it accepts a State of Palestine on the 1967 borders, cancels the plan to annex East Jerusalem and stops settlement development.

The PLO recognized Israel in 1993 and has approved numerous accords signed by the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government.
