US Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley told Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday that his leadership must choose between a path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence and another path of negotiation and compromise.
“There’s the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence,” she said at a UN Security Council briefing. “That path has led and will continue to lead to nothing but hardship for the Palestinian people.”
“There’s the path of negotiation and compromise,” she continued. “History has shown that path to be successful for Egypt and Jordan, including the transfer of territory. That path remains open to the Palestinian leadership if only it is courageous enough to take it.”
