PFLP condemns official Arab support for new so-called negotiations

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine strongly condemned the decision of the Higher Arab Monitoring Committee to support so-called "negotiations" with the racist extremist Netanyahu regime, emphasizing that this only gives cover to the Palestinian Authority, which pledged to the United States to return to these negotiations which are only damaging to Palestinian interests.

In a statement released on May 3, 2010, the PFLP emphasized that these negotiations serve Israeli and American goals only and not the Palestinian and Arab people, emphasizing that any such policy is destructive and deepens the split in the Palestinian arena. The Front's statement noted that this approach comes after all of the degrading slaps by the Netanyahu regime against even the PA, noting that any return to such negotiations gives cover for its escalation against our people and its policies of settlement and land confiscation.

The PFLP statement called upon the Palestinian people at all levels, inside and outside Palestine, at home and in exile, to reject these so-called negotiations, which serve only to attempt to humiliate our people and provide for the interests of the Zionist regime and U.S. imperialism.

Comrade Jamil Mizher, a member of the Central Committee of the PFLP, said that this decision by the Higher Arab Committee is a blow to the Palestinian national consensus against negotiations with the Netanyahu regime and its rapacious settlement policy. In a May 2, 2010 interview with Al-Alam television, Comrade Mizher emphasized that any return to negotiations means a reliance on the false promises of the United States, which sells only illusions and deception to the Palestinian people.

Comrade Mizher called for a serious stand by all Palestinian institutions to reject any such call, as it holds dangerous consequences for the present and future of our cause. He demanded an end to reliance on the US administration, which is a stratgic partner of the Israeli occupation, emphasizing the blatant racist actions of the Zionist regime, including the most recent military order 1650, calling for displacement and ethnic cleansing in the West Bank.

Comrade Mizher emphasized that this action reflects the bitter reality of Arab weakness in the face of the US administration, emphasizing that the US and Israel continue to plunder the land and impose new realities with impunity and Arab acquiescence. He demanded a complete end to the dead and stillborn Oslo course, after over 18 years of misery, and the need to build a political strategy that adheres to our people's fundamental goals and resistance against the occupation.
