WASHINGTON — Arab American groups offered to host the Palestine Liberation Organization in their offices if the Trump administration shuts down the PLO representation in Washington.

“If your staff are shut out and forced to move, you’re welcome to use tables and have desks and internet in our office,” James Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute, said Wednesday in a conference call with reporters.

Samer Khalaf, the president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, also extended the offer.

The Trump administration says it is in the process of shuttering the PLO office, at least temporarily, because the organization has violated a U.S. law that triggers a shutdown if the PLO pursues actions against Israelis in the International Criminal Court.
