The Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu demanding the shutting down of the Palestinian representative mission to the United States is absurd. We are here by the will of the American people and successive American presidents. We are here by the will of the Palestinian people and the leadership to serve as a bridge between the two countries, as the bedrock of our historic relationship, the propeller of our strategic partnership and the symbol of our commitment and investment in peace and a better future for our people, the people of the region and the world. Our response to Israel’s demand is to strengthen our presence in the US, deepen American-Palestinian alliance and widen our outreach to the American people.
