Ahmad Sa'adat speaks from isolation in Asqelan: The so-called "Two state solution" is a threat to the Palestinian people and the right to return

Ahmad Sa'adat, General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, said in a letter issued from isolation in Asqelan prison where he is held by the Israeli occupation, that the so-called "two state solution" is dangerous, threatens the right of return and the very existence of the Palestinian people in the occupied lands of Palestine '48.

The letter was sent on May 30, 2009 to the Preparatory Committee for the Palestinian National Day in Sweden. Sa'adat stated in the letter, which greeted the Palestinian and Arab communities and their consistent work to defend our rights, that the only termination of the historical and substantive conflict with the occupation is the end of Zionist rule in Palestine, the establishment of democracy and the achievement of the right of return. He noted that ending the Zionist project was the only real solution for the Palestinian people, while the so-called "two state solution" only opens the door for the acceptance of the "Jewish state," a racist concept based on the expulsion of our people.

Sa'adat also greeted the people of European countries who stood beside the Palestinian people in the face of the recent war on Gaza, and other international solidarity forces, particularly noting the leadership of Venezuelan Bolivarian president Hugo Chavez.

He stated, "I am honored to participate in these events marking the 61st anniversary of al-Nakba, in defense of our national and historical rights, particularly the right to return to our homeland. These are the rights affirmed by our national leaders and martyrs, including al-Hakim, Dr. George Habash, Abu Ali Mustafa and Sabir Mohieddin. They are not only the essence of the Palestinian cause but also the bridge for our nation and the democratization of all of historic Palestine."
