PLO official complains to British MPs that Israel commits "summary executions of Palestinians"; calls concept of Jewish state "racist"
Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida - Jan. 5, 2017
"Ashrawi demanded that Britain bear its historical responsibility"
"PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi… met yesterday [Jan. 4, 2017] with a high-ranking British parliamentary delegation that included MPs from the British Conservative Party and Labor Party who are visiting the Palestinian land in order to be updated from up close on the real situation on the ground…
Ashrawi referred to the actions of the Israeli occupation state on the ground and the fact that it continues to perpetuate its racist way with its insistence that the Palestinians recognize the Jewishness of the state, and also continues to build settlements and to expand those that exist in the Palestinian territories, and particularly in East Jerusalem. This is in addition to the acts of killing and summary executions of Palestinians that are carried out against children and women under the pretext of terror."
Throughout the terror attacks from Oct. 2015 to the present, the PA has maintained that Israel commits "summary executions" of Palestinians on the pretext that Palestinians were committing attacks. Even in cases when video footage proved that Palestinian terrorists tried to stab Israelis, the PA accused the Israeli army of killing unarmed youth.
