Watch: Clashes erupt in Jerusalem over left-wing event
Palestinian officials outraged with US: "This is discrimination"The Palestinian Authority responds to the Trump administration’s act at the UN blocking the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to the position of the UN envoy to Libya and accused the US of discrimination.
After US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley blocked the appointment of former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to the position of the UN envoy to Libya, Palestinian officials responded by stating that this was an act of discrimination.
Senior level member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Hanan Ashrawi accused Washington D.C. of racism in an interview for Al-Jazeera, "This is discrimination towards the Palestinian people. This decision isn't logical because Fayyad is the right person for the job since he is a talented man with high values and proven abilities."
"This act is a message to the world that people are being chosen because of their race and not for their talents and abilities," added Ashrawi.
