Skip to comments.The Latest: Palestinians say they won't meet with Pence

A senior Palestinian official says the Palestinians will not meet with Vice President Mike Pence during his upcoming visit to the region because of the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The official, Jibril Rajoub, said Thursday "we will not receive him in the Palestinian territories." Rajoub also calls for Arab officials not to meet with Pence.
Pence is expected to visit the region later this month. He is set to travel to Israel and to the West Bank city of Bethlehem. It was not clear what Rajoub's remarks meant for the West Bank portion of Pence's trip.
Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and to advance plans to move the U.S. Embassy to the contested city has sparked outrage across the region.

What was there to meet about?
Good. The bomb squad can take a day off.
Yes, it’s December and Pence is going to Bethlehem.
One less thing to do....Winning.
Just to be clear, they are unclean Jordanians.
...not the originals.
Cut off your nose to spite your face...
What's that got to do with meeting with the Palestinians?
And the outcome will be the same as if they had.
“The official, Jibril Rajoub, said Thursday ‘we will not receive him in the Palestinian territories.’”
Pretty sure meeting with insane, murderous, unwashed goat fockers isn’t on VP Pence’s itinerary in the first place!
I’m sure the VP will be devastated by this news.
Bingo!!!! Right on!!! There will never be peace in the middle east as long as the false “religion” of Islam exists.
So, the old game is over.
Jerusalem is the capital and the games they insist on playing are over.
Super! This move was even better than we thought.
How much money do we give the Palestinians? Whatever it is please Palestinians do something so we can stop paying you. We need the money to pay for our new embassy in Jerusalem.
Good. Stop sending the Palestinian Authority any money. They insult us with impunity because there are never any consequences. Shut off the spigot and watch how fast they cave.
Then don’t give him any more money.... next problem please
