PLO Leader: Oslo Accords Not Palestinian Recognition of Israel

PLO senior official Mohammad Zazeh, speaking at the international Palestinian solidarity conference “Palestine: Manifestation of Muslim Ummah’s Unity” held in Karachi, Pakistan, this week said that Israel is an illegitimate state that must cease to exist.

Zazeh, who is described as one of the leaders of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the international Palestinian group headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said the PLO has never recognized Israel as a legitimate state, and that the 1993 Oslo Accords should not be misunderstood to have constituted Palestinian recognition of Israel.

“Israel is an illegitimate state. Palestine belongs to Palestinians. An independent state of Palestine is what the Palestinians will get recognized,” Zazeh said, according to Pakistan’s largest financial daily, the Business Recorder.

Zazeh added, “Palestine and al Quds belong to all Arabs and Muslims. This is sacred land.”

The U.S.-mediated preliminary peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians are set to begin soon in Washington, DC.

    Based on this story there is no need to recognize the PLO as legitimate group. We do not need to accept their statements since they do not believe we should a State.

  2. Its like calling the kettle black, the plo are not the original people of the area! They have no right to demand or decree anything!

  3. The Guardian says:

    End the Occupation of the Muslim/Arab invaders. They came from Arabia with sword in hand, and that is where they should return. They are foreign occupiers who reached as far as Spain, France and the gates of Austria, where they were finally turned back. Arabs belong in their ancestral homeland of Arabia, where they can live happily in the 8th century. And they can take their Al-Aqsa Mosque with them.

    Palestina is not a state, the Palestinian with help of Jordan and the UK had occupied Jerusalem and through out the jews, so Israel is not occupying this territories, the Palestinian are, they should go out to Jordan with the help of Jordan and UK also US as "grantor". this is the reality.

  5. Jenny Holcberg says:

    Why don't we beleive palestinians when they deny Israel"s right to.
    exist.For once they are saying the thruth, that is what they are saying.
    and will keep saying , and meaning, and they have no intencion to.
    make peace, it is obvious.So why waste time and money, there is no.
    chance at all, and freeing all terrorists in Israels detention sites.
    will not change the outcome of these useless meetings.
