Broad Popular and Factional Rejection of Talks Resumption

Broad Popular and Factional Rejection of the Resumption of Talks

RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian national forces and factions, except Fatah movement, renewed their total rejection of resumption of talks between the PA and the Israeli occupation amid accusations to Fatah movement and PA of practicing dictatorship.

The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) has called on Palestinian people to reject Kerry's initiative to resume talks.

The DFLP called for sticking to the national basic demands including stopping settlement construction, prisoners' release and rejecting the Israeli and American pressures.

The Democratic Front expressed rejection of peace negotiations in light of the Israeli ongoing and escalated settlement schemes on Palestinian lands, stressing the invalidity of any peace talks without the achievement of Palestinian national aims.

For its part, Hamas movement has called on PA president Mahmoud Abbas to step back from his decision to resume talks that only serve the Israeli occupation.

Spokesman for the movement, Sami Abu Zahri stated that Abbas's decision to resume negotiations does not represent the will of the Palestinian people.

Meanwhile, the Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has launched a mass public campaign to bring down the Oslo agreement, to restore legitimacy to the Palestinian people as the source of resolution and all legitimacy.

Omar Shehadeh, member of the Political Bureau of the PFLP, stated that Sunday protest against negotiations in Ramallah is the beginning of a popular movement in the West Bank, Gaza, the occupied lands of 48, the camps and the Diaspora, to restore national unity on the basis of a national alternative strategy that rejects Oslo and its representatives.

For its part, Jihad movement stated that the return of talks between Palestinian and Israeli occupation authorities is only an attempt to mislead and cover the Palestinian people’s suffering.

The Palestinian people's party, for its part, stressed its rejection to resume talks under American mediation without achieving the Palestinian demands mainly stopping Israeli settlement construction, the establishment of Palestinian state on 1967-borders, the liberation of all Palestinian prisoners, and the commitment to the UN resolutions.
