Palestinians to seek membership in 63 groups

(JNS.org) The Palestine Liberation Organization’s (PLO) central body decided to adopt a plan to pursue membership in 63 United Nations bodies and international conventions, following the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. “We want the occupation to cost Israel dearly in political and international terms,” a senior PLO official told Haaretz. The plan by the PLO was adopted during a two-day closed session by the group’s central body. The PLO also adopted resolutions calling on the U.N. Security Council to condemn Israel “for settlement construction, anti-Palestinian actions in Jerusalem, and harm to the status of churches and mosques, especially Al-Aqsa on Jerusalem’s Haram al-Sharif/Temple Mount,” and affirmed its “absolute rejection” of recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, Haaretz reported.
