The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on Tuesday said Brazil, Argentina, and Uruguay are "aiding and abetting a cynical manipulation by the Palestinian Authority as it willfully pursues a policy designed to bypass a negotiated resolution of the conflict with Israel," according to an ADL statement.

The comments come after announcements were made that the South American countries recognize an independent Palestinian state.

Abraham H. Foxman, the ADL's National Director, said in the statement that "The actions taken by Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay to recognize an independent Palestinian state at this time undermine bridge-building and the possibility of future bilateral Israeli-Palestinian negotiations."

"Instead of persuading the Palestinians to re-engage with Israel, this can only result in prolonging the decades-long absence of peace. A Palestinian state with defined borders will come only as a result of bilateral negotiations with Israel, when both parties will commit to end the conflict and be ready to make sacrifices and compromises for peace," Foxman added.
