Shallah: PA’s insistence on its talks option may liquidate the Palestinian cause

GAZA, (PIC)– Secretary-general of the Islamic Jihad Movement Ramadan Shallah warned that the Palestinian Authority’s insistence on adopting the option of peace talks with Israeli occupation would eventually lead to the liquidation of the Palestinian cause and the recognition of Israel’s right to exist as a natural part of the region.

Shallah made his remarks in a ceremony held Friday afternoon on the 23rd inception anniversary of his Movement and the 15th death anniversary of late Fathi Al-Shakaki, the founder of Islamic Jihad.

The Islamic Jihad official pointed in his speech to the suspicious remarks made by PA leaders regarding their intention to recognize the Jewish state and warned of another calamity that could befall the Palestinian people as a result of the antinational positions of the PA.

“Today, we are sounding the alarm and warning of a third Nakba (catastrophe) that might result from the insistence on the approach of negotiations with the enemy and the belief that there is no other option but the negotiations,” he said.

“Palestine is not the issue of the Palestinian people alone, and Israel is not a threat to Palestine and its people, but the Zionist project threatens the entire [Arab] nation,” the official added.

“If anyone thinks he will turn his back to Palestine in order to save himself, he will be delusional because if Palestine is gone and Israel remains in the heart of the nation, no one will survive the flood of the Zio-American project aimed at dominating the region and the world.”

For his part, member of Islamic Jihad’s political bureau Mohamed Al-Hindi called in his speech on the PA to reorient the compass and declare the failure of its peace talks with the Israeli occupation.

“We are acutely aware that this useless process called peace constitutes a cover for all evils and a cover for waiving Jerusalem and losing the entire land of Palestine,” Hindi emphasized.

He also criticized the PA for saying that recognizing Israel as a Jewish state is a matter of indifference to the Palestinian people, affirming that this recognition would affect more than six million Palestinian refugees in the diaspora and one and half million others inside the 1948 occupied lands.

The Islamic Jihad official also slammed the US hegemony over the world and its persistence in killing thousands of civilians all over the globe in the name of democracy.

“The world which is ruled by the US is merciless and heartless and we say to this world, ‘you have killed hundreds of thousands of civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and threaten to kill millions in Sudan, while you are afraid that some of your crimes get leaked to the media so as not to pose a threat to your soldiers,” the official said.

“We understand that your mission in Palestine is to ensure Israel’s security and this means killing and displacing us. You are accomplices in the blockade, [Israel’s] crimes and the Judaization of our holy places, and Israel commits its war crimes on your behalf. You are a gang without values and your democracy is stained with the blood of martyrs in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Palestine, but we will extract our rights in our own way,” he added.

Senior Hamas official Khalil Hayya, who attended the ceremony, also highlighted the importance of resisting the Israeli occupation as the only option to liberate Palestine and urged Fatah to have the genuine will to achieve reconciliation in order to strengthen the internal front in the face of the occupation.
