PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with a “Telos Group” delegation of fifteen American women philanthropists at the PLO Headquarters in Ramallah and welcomed them to Palestine.
Dr. Ashrawi led a candid discussion on Israel’s systematic and willful efforts to destroy the chances for peace and stability with its unilateral violations of international law and conventions. In that context, she called for immediate and serious international intervention to end the occupation, and stressed the importance of all forms of nonviolent resistance of the occupation.
The discussion also focused on the internal situation in Palestine, including the latest developments regarding elections and reconciliation.
Dr. Ashrawi answered questions on the revitalization of the political system in Palestine and current and future Palestinian moves in the international arena.
