Despite Recent Criticism of Israelis and Palestinians, Obama Admin Only Lobbies One Faction to Change Course » THE DISTRICT SENTINEL news co-op

State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki said PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ application to join the International Criminal Court and Israel’s freezing of PA tax revenue in response both undermined the chances for a lasting peace. But while she said that the administration has lobbied the Palestinian Authority to change its mind, she didn’t say that it is doing the same with Israelis.

“We’ve certainly conveyed at high levels our view on the ICC action, and obviously we’d like to prevent it from moving forward,” she said, of US entreaties to Abbas’ administration. According a provision of budget bill passed at the end of last year, the US must withhold its financial assistance to the Palestinian Authority if it advances war crimes charges against Israel.
