PFLP warns, Palestine heading towards “Oslo 2″

Christof Lehmann (nsnbc),- Jamil Mizer, a prominent member of the political bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, PFLP, warned that the Palestinian leadership is marching toward disaster and concessions on internationally guaranteed Palestinian rights. We fear, said Jamil Mizer, that we are heading toward “Oslo 2″. 

negotiations noThe Palestinian Authority and PLO are coming under increased criticism for entering into negotiations with Israel under the auspices of the United States. The criticism is among other based in the historical facts, that Palestine has made significant concessions to Israel when signing the Oslo Accords while Israel has violated almost all of the provisions of the Accords, that it is a documented historical fact that Israel has not been negotiating in good faith during negotiations about the Oslo Accords and the Paris Protocols, that there are unmistakable signs for the fact that Israel is not negotiating in good faith in 2013 either, and because of the documented historical fact, that the United States never has been, and is not currently acting as anything even remotely comparable to an “honest broker”. Mizer´s warning against heading toward “Oslo 2″ is thus well funded. In an interview, Jamil Mizer said:

The return to negotiations on US/Israeli terms represents a lifeline to the occupation and the Obama administration, who are looking for achievements at the expense of our rights, in order to preserve their strategy and vision in the region and to preserve the occupation state.

Mizer also said, that the USA and Israel are taking advantage of the current regional situation of conflict and instability. Both Syria and Egypt, which have long stood as guarantors of pan-Arabist thought and politics and as guarantors for Palestine, have been significantly destabilized since the so-called Arab Spring began sweeping over the region in 2011. Mizer also said:

“The Palestinian leadership has slipped to a dangerous point, discussing annexation of settlement blocs and outposts in the West Bank and Jerusalem, which limits any state to a group of enclaves and cantons. This includes the discussion of exchange of territory, conceding the right of return, and threatens Jerusalem as the capital of Palestine. There is talk of a sovereign state and therefore we are confronting serious concessions of Palestinian national and human rights”. 

Both leading Palestinian politicians as well as analysts and experts on international law have repeatedly warned, that negotiations with Israel cannot be fruitful, and that disputes, such as the one between Israel and Palestine, as a matter of principle, has to be resolved on the basis of international law, and not in negotiations between two “partners” which cannot be described as co-equals, and where the one party has the other party under an illegal military occupation.

Mizer has called for political actions to be organized in Jerusalem, Gaza, the West Bank and the Palestinian territories which were occupied in 1948. He also called on the Palestinian diaspora to organize political action. Political action, so Mizer, is required to force the Palestinian negotiators to undo the steps they have taken by entering into negotiations. Mizer said:

“The negotiation policy is one that has taken place over a long period of time, and not only has it achieved nothing, it has in fact caused great damage.”
