Palestinian Authority President Threatens Violence if US Cuts Funding

Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and Founder Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.

The Palestinian Authority so-called President, Mahmoud Abbas, has concluded his address to the U.N. Security Council by threatening violence if the Trump administration does not pay funds to the U.N Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees in the Near East. This is astounding. But this is what he is all about, and the Palestinian Authority, including Hamas. We’re going to be talking about this on Faith and Freedom.

I’m Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, joining me is Matt Barber, founder of, and Holly Meade, the Director of Communications for Liberty Counsel.

Mat Staver: Well, let’s begin with who is Mahmoud Abbas? He is “the president” of the Palestinian Authority. Why do I use that in quotes? Well, because, he was elected to that position in January of 2005 for a four year term. Meaning, that would have expired in 2009. But this is 2018. how is he still the president? there’s been no elections since 2005.
