There he goes again. Joe Biden un-doing something good that President Trump did.
Team Biden has decided to re-open the Washington, D.C. office of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO).
The Trump administration shut it down in 2018, after the PLO refused to return to peace negotiations with Israel.
GOP leaders in the House and the Senate have called on Biden to suspend this action. That’s due to the recent violence against Israel, and the PLO’s shaky commitment to peace.
Republican Senator Jim Risch wrote this in a letter to Biden:
“I strongly believe that such a reopening undermines U.S. interests, turns a blind eye to victims of Palestinian-sponsored terrorism, and will make necessary changes in Palestinian conduct less likely.”
And Risch said the American people have a right to be skeptical of the PLO’s dedication to peace under previous agreements.
And another group of 16 GOP Senators wrote a letter to the President on this topic:
Congress requires the PLO to be engaged in peace talks as a condition for the office to be open. But like most laws and rules, Democrats don’t think these rules apply to them.
Why would Team Biden let a group like the PLO re-open their DC office? I’m not sure, but I don’t think it’s in the best interests of our nation.
