(19 Aug 2019) LEAD IN:The US Embassy will no longer be holding a conference for Palestinian aid recipients at a hotel in Ramallah.The cancellation happened after groups critical of the US protested against the event. STORY-LINE:An event organised by the US Embassy in Jerusalem has been derailed following protests, activists said Monday.Issam Bakr, Coordinator of Islamic and National Forces of Ramallah and al-Bireh district, a multi-faction group, gave a press conference outside the hotel where the meeting was scheduled to take place."All the suspicious US support and the politically conditional support is rejected by our Palestinian people," he said."Since yesterday, we have been working with various factions of the Palestinian Liberation Organisation and Palestinian Islamic factions to thwart this conference," he continued."We want to make sure that any efforts and attempts by the US administration to hold similar conferences will be thwarted," he added.Dozens of Palestinians who had received American educational and training programmes in the past few years were scheduled to attend a meeting with embassy officials in the Grand Park hotel in Ramallah on Wednesday.The embassy had obtained Israeli crossing permits for dozens of expected guests from Gaza.But critics like Bakr were firmly against the event taking place."This conference will not be held under the sun of Ramallah and this is an affirmation that the Palestinian people will not accept American arrogance or orders," he said."The policy of blackmailing will not pass," he continued."Swapping our national rights with support funds for some suspicious projects will also not pass," he said.Bakr said he contacted the hotel and the invitees and asked them to cancel, and said he described the political implications to them.The US Embassy has not yet issued a statement.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
