The PLO leadership warned Tuesday that Israeli policies in Jerusalem and the West Bank posed an "unprecedented and serious threat – in the short term – to the two state solution."

The warning was issued following a lengthy meeting of the PLO Executive Committee, headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, in Ramallah.

The PLO leadership said that Israel's policy of "Judaizing" Jerusalem and "ethnic cleansing" in the West Bank "paved the way for the possibility of the establishment of one racist state where Israel would retain its occupation of Palestinian lands and prevent the creation of an independent Palestinian state on the 1967 borders."

The PLO leadership said that the talk about resuming peace negotiations was aimed at "covering up for Israeli practices" and called on the United Nations to grant a Palestinian state the status of non-member during the upcoming session of the General Assembly.
