PLO Responds To Israeli Demand Of 'Jewish State' Recognition: 'Show US The Map Of Your Borders'
Yasser Abed Rabbo, an official with the Palestine Liberation Organization, told reporters on Wednesday that in response to the Israeli demand that the Palestinians recognize it as a 'Jewish state', that Israel must present the map of the state that it wants the Palestinians to recognize, before asking this question.
Abed Rabbo told the Palestinian news agency Ma'an News, "Israel is an unknown entity in terms of borders [so] how does it suggest we recognize it as a Jewish state? Israel and the US should first set out Israel's borders".
