Palestinian National and Islamic Forces rejects US demand to fire Abbas advisor

On May 2, 2013, PMW reported that Abbas advisor Sultan Abu Al-Einein glorified a murderer who killed an Israeli father of five. In response, five members of US Congress wrote a letter to Abbas demanding Abu Al-Einein be removed from office.
 “Yesterday [June 24, 2013] the [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces… said they oppose the American Congress’ discussion and its demand that Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein be punished, and [they] relate to this matter most seriously. They perceived this as interference in internal Palestinian affairs and as reinforcing a blatant tendency to favor the occupation.”

Note: Sultan Abu Al-Einein is advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and a member of Fatah Central Committee. Despite the letter from the Congressmen, Al-Einein was not removed from office.
