Several ofthewounded Negev regional council,and death." to deny US By Jackson Richman ington Free Beacon that usually, foreign dignitaries must be allowed entry to the United States due to it being the United Nations' host country. "I can't speak to the spe- cifics, but typically, as host nation for the United Nations, the United States is generally obligated to admit foreign nationals traveling to U.N. headquarters Jn New York for official U.N. business," the official said. Daniel S. Mariaschin, ex- ecutive vice president and CEO of B'nai B'rith Interna- tional, said "while the United States might be obligated to admit him, his and Palestinian leaders' repeated justification and glorification of those who carry out acts of terror once again underscore the consistent failure of Abbas as a partner for peace." 'Already delivering a power- ful policy signal' Sander Gerber, a private New York financial executive and former board member of AIPAC who was a major player behind advocating for the Taylor Force Act, told JNS that the international community fails to truly understand the Palestinian Authority, and that if "the rest of the world can't identify [the P.A.] as a terrorist-sponsoring entity, then we really have no hope to control the terrorists." "The Palestinians should (JNS)--The Trump ad- ministration has come under pressure to deny Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas entry into the United States for next week's annual U.N. General Assembly meet- ing in New York. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW), a group that tracks anti-Semitism and terror- ism in Palestinian media, petitioned the White House, as well as the State and Trea- sury departments, to reject Abbas from stepping foot on American soil in accordance with new federal statutes prohibiting international ter- rorist leaders from traveling to the United States. "Abbas has also called for the 'destruction of the house' of President Trump, and uses almost every opportunity to attack the US, the current administration and its poli- cies," PMW said in the letter. "There is no doubt Abbas will use his UN address to continue these attacks." "While it may be argued that the United States is com- mitted to allow the entry and free passage of certain persons into the US to participate in meetings of the United Na- tions, that commitment is limited to the 'Representatives of Member' States," PMW continued. "Since Palestine is not a member state of the United Nations, Abbas does not enjoy these privileges and his entry into the US must be specifically granted." In the letter, PMW also cited the Taylor Force Act, enacted in March to halt most U.S. assistance to the P.A. for rewarding terrorists and their families, among other reasons to preventAbbas from being at the General Assembly. A State Department spokesperson told The Wash- not be granted an exception and the world must face the reality that the Palestinian Authority is actually spor- soring terror and should be designated as such," he stated. However, Washington- based geopolitical strategist and diplomacy consultant John Sitilides, told JNS that barringAbbas fromthe United Stateswouldbe counterintui- tive, considering recent pure tire measures by the Trum~ administration against tte Palestinians. "The leading state sponso" of international terrorisn remains Iran, whose leaden are permitted to enter the U. for United Nations' purpose,~ Earlier this year, Presidert Trump met personally for sev erai days with Kim Jong Ur, another leading state sponsor of international terrorism,' said Sitilides. "In comparativ terms, barring Mahmoud Ab bas, with whom Israel seeks b cooperate on a lasting resolu tion of the Israeli-Palestinial disputes, would be highl; counterproductive." He added that "the Truml administration's recent redi rection of $200 million in U.S aid for West Bank and Gaza i. already delivering a powerfu policy signal of Washington'; great displeasure over ongo- ing Palestinian activities."
