For the U.S. Palestine No Longer Exists...

•, By Stephen Lendman

Earlier this year, it cut off most US funding for Palestinians. All funding through UNRWA for its refugee population ended, a flagrant assault on their rights and welfare.

In September, the State Department closed the PLO office in Washington after operating for 24 years.

At the time, John Bolton said closure was because "Palestinians refusing to take steps to start direct and meaningful negotiations with Israel" – a bald-faced lie.

It's because Palestinians haven't unconditionally surrendered to unacceptable US and Israeli demands. The move severed formal US diplomatic relations with Palestinians.

Trump regime hardliners want Palestinians severely punished for refusing to abandon their fundamental rights.

The latest blow came Thursday. Pompeo announced what he called the merger of Washington's Jerusalem embassy with its consulate in the city, downgrading the status of Palestinians more than already.

He lied calling the move a way "to achieve significant efficiencies and increase our effectiveness."
