The PLO Delegation Condemns the Killing of Muhammad Abu Latifa

Published by:

July 27th, 2015

The Israeli Occupation forces killed Muhammad Abu Latifa, 18, in an attempt to detain him, in the Qalandiya refugee camp near Ramallah in the Occupied West Bank. The Israeli Army has repeatedly returned to a trigger-happy state of open fire as evident by today’s killing of Muhammad Abu Latifa in addition to more than 22 Palestinians who have been killed by the Israeli military in 2015. Allowing Israeli soldiers to open fire at will is a dangerous escalation of violence.

The killing of Muhammad Abu Latifa is a blatant violation of human rights. The international community and the United States must put an end to Israel’s impunity and hold it and its occupation forces accountable to their actions.

The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States, calls on the United States and the international community to stop shielding Israel and its human rights violation before the eyes of the law and demand that the occupation including all of its consequences be ended immediately.

Study: Palestinian American National Research Project

Published by:

The General Delegation of the PLO is pleased to present the first of its kind comprehensive study Palestinian American National Research Project on the demography of Palestinian Americans living in the United States.

Due to an absence of clear classification of Arabs living in the US on official census forms, the General Delegation of the PLO to the US has decided to undertake the task of analyzing the demography of Palestinian Americans.

This is particularly significant because the information provided by the US Census Bureau fails to reflect the accurate number of Palestinians and their composition, as well as a lack other sources providing demographic data on this important subject matter.

In 2013, this project was assigned to experts to provide more information about the numbers and demography of Palestinian Americans living in the United States. However, we encountered two main problems, including arriving at an accurate number of Palestinian Americans living in the United States and meeting the deadline of the study to be completed in 2014. Nevertheless, this study is a significant and one of a kind research focusing on the Palestinian American population in the United States.

Despite the fact that it is a qualitative and not a quantitative study in nature, the study provides useful information for all interested parties in learning more about Palestinian Americans in the US.  This project is available to all and is downloadable at This Link.

The General Delegation of the PLO encourages members of the Palestinian American community and all interested parties to use this first of its kind study, to further their understanding of the Palestinian American community and to disseminate this information and share it with others.
We are receptive to any comments or observation at our email: info@plodelegation.us . please limit such comments for research purposes or useful information which would enhance this study in the future.

The PLO Delegation Commemorates the One-Year Anniversary of 2014 Gaza Assault

Published by:

July 8, 2015

The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States commemorates one year since the Israeli onslaught on the Gaza Strip in July 2014. This most recent barbaric attack against Palestinians in Gaza left 2,251 Palestinians, mostly civilians including 299 women and 556 children, dead, and wrecked havoc and destruction on the whole Gaza Strip.

A year later, construction efforts continue to be hampered by Israel and thousands of Palestinians are still under siege, continuing a very difficult situation that was the root cause of past conflicts with Israel.

Without lifting the blockade that Israel poses on 1.8 million Palestinians, the situation remains volatile and could escalate at any time. One cannot separate the situation in Gaza from the overall Israeli occupation of the Palestinian people and Israel’s refusal to end it and allow Palestinians to live a dignified, free, and independent life in their state.

The international community’s failure to hold Israel accountable to its actions in Gaza last year and continual shielding of Israel in International fora by the United States is shameful and reprehensible. It is hypocritical to advocate and promote respect for Human Rights and Democratic Values at a time when Israel is treated with impunity that encourages the continuation of the violations of Human Rights and International Law.

In recent days, the Israeli Army has repeatedly returned to a happy trigger of open fire as evident by today’s killing of the 17 year old, Muhammed Al-Kasbah. Allowing Israeli soldiers to open fire at will under pretexts and particularly targeting youth, is a dangerous escalation of violence.

The Killing of Muhammed al-Kasbah is a blatant violation of Human Rights, the international community and the United States must put an end to Israel’s impunity and hold it and its occupation forces accountable to their actions.
The General Delegation of the PLO to the United States, calls on the United States and the International community to stop shielding Israel and its Human rights violation before the eyes of the law and demand that the occupation including all of its consequences be ended momentarily.
