Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said, if Israel does not back down from its racist practices against Palestine, we will take decisive decisions that we will discuss at the next Central Council meeting, which will be held early next year.
Abbas stressed that “the occupation state’s continued undermining of the two-state solution and the imposition of the reality of “apartheid” will make us obliged to go to other options.
He stressed that if the Israeli occupation does not retreat from its practices, and take decisive decisions that we will discuss in the next Central Council.”
He added, in a televised speech at the conference “Self-Liberation of the Palestinians: Production of Resistance Knowledge”, broadcast on “Palestine TV: that the Palestinians will not accept the continuation of the occupation of their land forever.
The Palestinian president pointed out that the Palestinian people “possessed the capabilities, knowledge, science, culture, and civilization that enabled it to spread and succeed in all parts of the world.”
He affirmed support for all peaceful popular resistance initiatives in Palestinian villages, cities, and camps of refugees, which are achieving continuous successes on the road to confronting settlement and displacement projects.”
Abbas renewed his absolute rejection of “the continued Israeli occupation of the land of the State of Palestine, racial discrimination and ethnic cleansing against our people, changing the historical status of Al-Aqsa Mosque, preventing worshipers from reaching the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, expelling Palestinians from Jerusalem neighborhoods, and classifying 6 Palestinian civil organizations as terrorism.”
The Palestinian president also stressed “commitment to the unity of our land and people and the formation of a national unity government, in which all participating forces are committed to international legitimacy, and to work to consolidate the foundations of democracy through holding general elections in all Palestinian territories, including the city of Jerusalem.”
Abbas called on the international community to pressure “the occupation government to abide by the signed agreements, and to allow the elections to be held in East Jerusalem, as was the case in the previous elections.”
