CAIRO, (PIC)– Deputy head of Hamas’s political bureau Mousa Abu Marzouk said that the moves being made by US secretary of state John Kerry to revive the peace process are grave and detrimental to the Palestinian rights.
Abu Marzouk stated on his facebook page on Monday that Kerry could not find a way to put pressure on Israel, but rather he found, as usual, that the Arabs were the supple part that could be pressured, and accordingly he took his steps.
Kerry managed to pressure the Arabs to accept the exclusion of Jerusalem from the coming peace talks between the Palestinians and Israelis through a document to be signed by Mahmoud Abbas and king Abdullah bin Al-Hussein under which Jordan would handle the issue of Jerusalem, the Hamas official underlined.
The official also said that the Arab peace initiative was also modified in favor of the Israelis and the talk about the 1967 borders was replaced with the proposal of swapping lands between the Palestinian authority and the Israeli occupation state.
He emphasized that neither the Palestinian authority nor anyone has the right to cede a grain of the Palestinian soil or the Palestinian refugee’s right to return to their homeland.
