Raging against Trump: Cut all ties to the UNITED states

the Palestinians will end all connections to both the UNITED states and Israel.

It says the palestinian selvstyrepræsident, Mahmoud Abbas, according to AFP news agency.

the Palestinians will not cooperate in the security area, he adds.

the Statement comes at a hasteindkaldt meeting of The Arab League, after the president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, earlier in the week presented a peace plan for the Middle east.

the Plan is 'inconsistent with the agreements', from Oslo in 1993, when Israel and the palestinians agreed on a palestinian self-government, says Abbas.

Israel must "bear the responsibility, as an occupying power" in the palestinian territories, says Abbas at Saturday's emergency meeting, which takes place at his invitation.

He asks the arab countries to stand together and take the distance of the proposal from Trump, reports the tv station al-Jazeera.

the Plan, which Trump calls 'the agreement', was presented in Washington on Tuesday.

It is negotiated with Israel, while the palestinians have not been heard, the palestinian chief negotiator, Its Erekat, previously stated.

According to the plan, Israel can annex large areas of the west bank, which today is palestinian territory, including the settlements, as the vast majority of the world considers illegal.

The palestinian autonomy is in advance suspended in touch with Trump administration, after the UNITED states de facto has recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Trump asked to speak with me on the phone, but I said no, and he said that he would send me a letter, but I refused to receive it, says Abbas according to al-Jazeera during Saturday's meeting of The Arab League headquarters in Cairo.

Large-scale demonstrations against the Trumps plan has influenced both the Gaza strip and the west bank in recent days.

Unlike the palestinians, israeli politicians reacted strongly positive on the american plan.

prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, called it a "historic day" and thanked the Trump, when the plan was presented Tuesday.
