GAZA, (PIC)– Senior Hamas official Salah Al-Bardawil said his Movement rejects any solution ceding one inch of the Palestinian land and believe that Palestine is not to be shared with the Israeli occupation.
Bardawil told Quds Press that the renewed move made by the Arab League to revive the peace process and its acceptance of land swaps are part of the Arab peace initiative which has been utterly rejected by Hamas since its emergence in 2002.
“The position of the Hamas Movement towards the Arab peace initiative has been clear since it started, that is, it has never accepted it and seen it as a waiver of the right of refugees to return and as recognition of the occupation,” Badawil stated.
“We expected that the Arab League would withdraw this initiative, but we were surprised by this new overture which is based on swapping lands,” he added.
“Neither this initiative nor any other will be successful since they go against the Palestinian people’s rights,” he emphasized.
