The Palestine Liberation Organization's top leadership opened the way to suspending its recognition of Israel over the weekend, but stopped short of ordering the drastic measure immediately. Withdrawing the PLO's 1988 recognition would threaten decades of Israeli relations with the moderate Palestinian leadership and raise doubts over security coordination between the two.It would also be seen as a fatal blow to the two-state solution, already on life support following the White House's December recognition of occupied Jerusalem as Israel's capital.Last month the PLO's Central Council called on the Executive Committee to suspend recognition of Israel until it recognizes the state of Palestine and halts the building of illegal Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian land.Israel has imposed severe restrictions on Palestinian development in this area, home to dozens of Israeli settlements.
