    The U.S. has revoked the visas of Palestinian Ambassador Husam Zomlot and his family following the decision to shutter the Palestine Liberation Organization mission in Washington, Zomlot told Palestinian news outlet Ma'an Sunday.

    According to a a PLO statement, authorities told employees at the PLO office to cease all operations, close down all bank accounts, and to vacate the premises by October 13, according to the statement.

    Zomlot said that authorities also shut his family's bank accounts and demanded that they immediately leave the U.S. He said the development was an attempt at revenge in order to placate Israel.

    The White House told Haaretz that it was reviewing the matter.

    How can peace ever be brokered when everything is so one-sided? Does Trump think he can bully the Palestinians into accepting whatever crumbs fall off Israel's table, indeed, if there are any crumbs?
