BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- US Congress members are calling for action to be taken against the Palestinian Authority in response to the applications to join 15 international treaties, Palestine's envoy in Washington said Sunday.

Maen Areikat told Ma’an that some pro-Israeli US representatives have voiced their demands to impose sanctions against the PA, which including ceasing financial aid.

Areikat said the US administration realizes the importance of the PA’s role in the peace process and the importance of financial aid in the current stage.

“We did not hear any indication by the US administration about taking action against the PA,” Areikat said, explaining that stopping financial would will have negative repercussions for US interests.

He also said they would not affect plans to seek international recognition.

Areikat highlighted that the Palestinians should remain on guard and make their positions clear to Congress members.

Once again, the US Congress shows that they are tools of the Isreali's. The PA has every right to seek UN recognition, what is Israel afraid of ... justice?

To Colin Wright: And it promises to get worse. You have Aronson supporting the Republicans and Haim Saban the Democrats. One can only gasp at the Supreme Court allowing - a once venerable bulwark preventing undermining of the Constitution of the United States - allowing federal politics to mirror the long discredited shady politics of allowing, nay inviting, anyone with enough $ to buy the election. Now, for the next government; one is spoiled for choice. Will it be Hilary Saban or Cory Aronson?

A "blind" item with little in detail and lots of venom. The ambassador must name names if he wants to be considered credible.
