Abbas Wins Recognition for PA from Haiti and Grenada

Share Button

Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas continues a quiet and determined global campaign for recognition of the Palestinian Authority as a country and now has brought Haiti and Grenada into the growing number of countries who have established diplomatic relations.

Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki signed the protocols with his Haitian and Grenadian counterparts at United Nations headquarters in New York on Friday, according to the official Palestinian Authority WAFA   news agency,

“The protocols stated that the governments of Palestine, Haiti and Grenada wish to strengthen relationship and cooperation between them and therefore decided to establish diplomatic relations effective immediately following the signing ceremonies,” the PA stated.

“It is a new success for Palestinian diplomacy,” he added.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported that more than 130 countries maintain diplomatic relations and recognize the Palestinian Authority as a country.

  1. Wow! Nothing against Haiti, but Israeli medical personnel came in and helped them during the earthquake and other things…. Now they want to side with the PA who as far as I know, hasn’t provided any assistance!

    What if the U.S. cut off aid to all those that have chosen to classify this terrorist group as a country? All should be required to state that they believe that Israel has a right to exist.

    How ungrateful these two countries are to recognize the PLO who did not donate any money or any aid during the Haitian and Grenada time of need while Israel was the first country to come to their aid. I wish Israel presents Haiti and Grenada an invoice for the Israeli service and extract payment so the world will learn where their bread is buttered and Israel should learn to mind its own business and fee its own survivors instead where it is appreciated and deserved.

  6. From all the countries in the world yours has the most to thank Israel, especially after what the Israelis did for you, at their own peril, in your last earthquake disaster.
    For you know to accept the Arab-Palestinians at their terrorism face value and side with them is a slap on Israel's face.
    So when your next disaster comes, I suggest you call on the so called Arab-Palestinians to come help you, to set up hospitals and give you advice, care, love and food. Do not call Israel!
