A senior-level Palestinian official, Hana Ashrawi, said in a statement that was distributed by the Palestinian Liberation Organization that Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is serving as nothing but a “one-woman crusade” against all-things-Palestinian.
She must be opposed and silenced on the international front.
Ashrawi said Haley was leading a “one-woman crusade … against Palestine and the Palestinian people individually and collectively.”
“Through an obsessive and targeted campaign of intimidation and threats, Miss Haley’s crusade does not miss an opportunity to put pressure on anyone that seeks to challenge Israeli impunity,” she added.
Ashrawi accused Haley of doing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s bidding.
Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon came to Haley’s defense.
“Small wonder Hanan Ashrawi is unhappy – @nikkihaley fights for a fair treatment of #Israel, exactly what the #Palestinians don’t want,” he tweeted.
While there have been several Palestinian media reports of the Palestinian leadership’s dissatisfaction at the Trump administration’s pro-Israel overtures, until now nothing has been said publicly.
Ashrawi said Haley was “compounding the victimization of the Palestinian people and browbeating the institutions that are meant to defend their rights.”
She continued with the claim that President Donald Trump’s envoy was undermining the chances of peace by “pursuing her own agenda consistent with her anti-Palestinian obsession and as an apologist for Israel.”
It’s not as if Ashrawi is a voice of reason.
Her past, as Breitbart notes, is filled with radicalism.
During the First Palestinian Intifada, or war of “resistance” against Israel, in 1988, Ashrawi joined what was known as the Intifada Political Committee, which sought to advance Palestinian goals through both politics and “resistance.” She served there until 1993.
In 1991, Arafat appointed Ashrawi to serve as the PLO’s Minister of Higher Education and Research. The Palestinian school system is notorious for its glorification of “martyrdom,” or suicide bombings, and has long preached against the existence of Israel.
…In 1998 Ashrawi founded MIFTAH, a nonprofit that seeks to undermine Israel’s legitimacy and refers to that Jewish state’s 1948 creation as “Al Nakba,” or “The Catastrophe.”
The media, however, still gives Ashrawi a platform — and a pass on radicalism.
