Concern: Will the WH celebrate a terrorist?

The head of a messianic Jewish ministry is fearful the Trump White House will succumb to the myth that the Palestinian leadership in the Middle East actually wants peace.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer has confirmed that President Donald Trump has extended an invitation to Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas (above) to come to Washington "in the near future" to resume the political process.

The Palestinians clearly are not happy at the more favorable approach shown by Washington toward Israel and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu since Trump took office. Palestinian officials indicated that during the meeting Abbas would emphasize his concern about Israeli settlement-building on what he calls "occupied land" and the need for a two-state solution to the conflict.

Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, admits being "very disappointed" that Abbas will be coming to the White House.

"He'll be wined and dined, he'll be celebrated – [but] he's a terrorist," she tells OneNewsNow. "Mahmoud Abbas was trained by the Soviets some 50 years ago. And the Israelis are deluded if they think any good is going to come from this. There will only be evil come from this."
