WASHINGTON, (PIC)-- The Palestinian community in the US has denied that de facto Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas had met with its members, affirming that he only met with a limited number of PA employees other than meeting the Jewish community.
The Palestinian community said in a statement on Saturday that the alleged meeting with Abbas never happened.
"We challenge the PA in Ramallah to declare the name of one Palestinian institution or society that participated in this alleged meeting," it said.
The community noted that the only meeting for Abbas with Palestinians was the one held in New York with very few people most of whom working with the PA missions in New York and Washington. It added that the only community Abbas met with during his visit was the Jewish community in the presence of representative of 50 Zionist, racist organizations.
The community declared its objection to the policies of Abbas, describing them as "catastrophic".
It condemned the detention of innocent people in the West Bank and the security coordination with the Israeli occupation authority, adding that it would not meet with Abbas or provide a cover for his capitulatory policy.
