PLO Executive Committee Member Dr. Hanan Ashrawi met with visiting students from George Mason University at the PLO Headquarters in Ramallah.

Dr. Ashrawi provided a thorough assessment of the latest international and regional developments and the deteriorating conditions on the ground, including Israel’s flagrant violations of international law and its deliberate destruction of the two-state solution.

The discussion also focused on the roles of both the U.S. administration and Congress in peacemaking, the flaws in the “peace process” and the strategic American-Israeli alliance that has led to the undermining of the chances for peace and the achievement of a two-state solution.

In that view, Dr. Ashrawi stressed the importance of multilateral engagement and the need for members of the international community, including the U.S., to end their preferential treatment of Israel, adopt serious steps to ensure Israeli compliance with international law and international humanitarian law, and to undertake concrete steps with a binding timeframe to end the military occupation and to establish an independent and sovereign Palestinian state.
