PFLP: Return to Negotiations Was Unjustified

Press Release – Palestinian Information Centre

RAMALLAH, GAZA, (PIC)– Member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) Khalida Jarrar said the decision of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to return to negotiations with the Israeli state was “unjustified.”

Jarrar condemned in remarks to the Palestinian local Radio Sawt al-Sha’b on Monday the resumption of negotiations, and stressed that “the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine refuses the direct negotiations sponsored by America.” 

She pointed out that the Popular Front had earlier supported the step to go to the United Nations for boycotting and prosecuting the Israeli occupation for its crimes and for enabling the Palestinian people to regain its right to self-determination.

Jarrar added that the PFLP during the recent leadership meeting called for dismissing those who “do not represent the people in any way”, as Yasser Abed Rabbo and others who have normalized relationships with Israel

The PFLP official also demanded halting the negotiations with the state of Israel and conducting a series of reforms and changes within the PLO.

Secretary-General of the Ahrar Movement Khaled Abu Hilal demanded the Palestinian people and factions to lift the cover of legitimacy from the President of Ramallah authority, Mahmoud Abbas, stressing that Abbas does not represent the Palestinians.

Abu Hilal said in a statement to Al-Aqsa TV: “Abbas does not have the right to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people. The return to direct negotiations serves only the occupation.”

“The Rights and national constants of the Palestinian people are not subject to a referendum or compromises,” Secretary-General of the Ahrar also asserted.

He pointed that many Palestinian factions and leaders have unanimously agreed that the decision made by Abbas and the Authority to return to negotiations represents political suicide.
