US Envoy to the Middle East Peace Process Jason Greenblatt said yesterday that the Palestinian leadership does not have a “vision to improve the lives of the Palestinians”.
Posting an interview with the PLO’s Secretary Saeb Erekat conducted by the presenter of the German Deutsche Welle’s “Conflict Zone” programme, Greenblatt said that this interview “reveals many of the deepest problems that Palestinians are dealing with.”
On Twitter Greenblatt wrote about the interview in Hebrew and called for his followers to watch it.
In another tweet, Greenblatt criticised the Palestinian Authority because of its criticism to the US-draft resolution to be brought for voting at the UN General Assembly against Hamas and the Palestinian resistance.
Beyond absurd- the Palestinian Authority, which hates Hamas, has cut payments to Gaza for months which increases the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza, now tries to defend Hamas & terrorism by undermining a condemnation of Hamas at the UN. It’s time to speak the truth. https://t.co/YDmPSRMgyD

The UN General Assembly is expected to vote on a US draft bill on Thursday which condemns Hamas rocket fire at Israel which the resistance maintain is its legitimate right to self-defence in the face of Israel’s enduring occupation of Palestine.
On Friday the UNGA voted in favour of six resolutions regarding the Palestine-Israel conflict including one which said it found no links between Judaism and the Al-Asqa Mosque compound and another which stressed that the Golan Heights is Syrian territory which is under Israeli occupation.
