Palestinian Authority calls on the US to remove PLO from list of terrorist organizations

RAMALLAH, Tuesday, May 24, 2022 (WAFA) – The Palestinian Authority (PA) today called on the US administration to remove the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) from its list of terrorist organizations.

“The PA called on the US administration, in an official letter, to remove the PLO from the lists of terrorism, according to the classification of Congress,” said Hussein al-Sheikh, member of the PLO’s Executive Committee.

“We expressed our astonishment and our absolute rejection of the persistence of this unjust classification of a people under occupation at a time when the Kach terrorist organization is removed from those lists.”

The US earlier this week removed the terrorist Israeli Kach movement from the US lists of terrorism. At the same time, the US Congress insisted on keeping the PLO, a liberation movement fighting to free its people and country from more than 50 years of Israeli occupation, on the terrorist lists, prompting the PA to describe this step as a “double standard and the victory of injustice.”
