Hussein Al-Sheikh, member of the PLO’s Executive Committee and Fatah’s Central Committee, stated today: “We expressed our astonishment and our absolute rejection of the persistence of this unjust classification of a people under occupation at a time when the Kach terrorist organization is removed from those lists.”
Earlier this week, the US removed the terrorist Israeli Kach movement from its list of terror organizations. The PA described this as a “double standard and the victory of injustice.”
On its part, Hamas described the step as a reflection of the double standards measure the US administration adopts, saying that the decision shows the inability of the United States to be an honest broker in the conflict with the occupation.
