Secretary General of the Islamic Jihad Ramadan Abdullah said on Saturday that Palestine Authority chief's demand for the United Nations recognition of Palestinian state will not help restore the Palestinians’ rights.
Addressing the Fifth International Conference on Intifada, he asked, “What’s the use of declaration of the state of Palestine by 125 countries of the United Nations when the Palestinians have no right to govern it?”
Appreciating Iran for hosting the event, Abdullah also said that it is a valuable move under the current sensitive situation.
He said that the Palestinians should own the entire land, nothing less than that.
When a country is occupied, what use will it have to endorse a plan for setting a government? he wondered.
“We demand dignity, justice, freedom and are not ready to surrender to Israel,” he noted.
The two-day conference is focusing on the motto of “Palestine, a land only for Palestinians”.
Parliamentary delegations including several speakers, leading political figures and scholars from 50 Islamic and non-Islamic countries as well as leaders of several Palestinian groups are taking part in the two-day event which is focusing on the motto of “Palestine, a land only for Palestinians”.
The motto adopted by the conference is a reflection of the fact that Palestinians “are not” in search of a land because they already have their own.
The conference aims to mobilize all official and non-official capacities of the Muslim World as well as other freedom-loving countries to support Intifada and back the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people to end occupation of their homeland, return homeless Palestinians to their motherland and vindicate the right of the Palestinians to determine their own destiny.
