PNC on The Land Day: The Israeli ethnic cleansing policy failed to uproot our people from their land
PNC affirmed that the Zionist ethnic cleansing policy, which has lasted for nearly a hundred years, has failed to uproot the Palestinian people from their land where they lived generation after generation for thousands of years.
In a statement issued today, on the occasion of the 44th anniversary of the Eternal Land day, PNC recalled the meanings of sacrifice and redemption of our people to defend their land, and recalled the immaculate blood of the martyrs in the Galilee, Al muthallath and the Negev on 30th of March 1976, in response to the decision of the Israeli occupation to confiscate 21 thousand dunums in those cities, where six Palestinians were killed.
PNC affirmed that the policies of the Israeli occupation include land confiscation, settlement building, ethnic cleansing, house demolitions, in addition to applying of racist laws, the Judaization of Christian and Islamic sanctities of Jerusalem, and other tools of oppression, killing, and detention, all of which did not succeed in dissuading the Palestinian people from holding onto their land. The Palestinian people is exceeding 13 million, about 6.6 million Palestinians live in Palestine, the land of parents and grandfathers, in addition to about 6.727 million Palestinians are waiting to return to their lands from which they were displaced by the massacres and Zionist terrorism.
The Land Day anniversary this year comes while the Palestinian is subjected to two simultaneous attacks, the PNC added, the first: The Coronavirus pandemic and the second: The Israeli occupation that is racing against time to implement the
articles of the American so-called "Deal of the Century" to uproot the Palestinians from their land and accelerate the pace of colonialism in a flagrant violation and aggression of the international law and international legitimacy resolutions, in particular UN Security Council Resolution No. 2334 of 2016, The Hague Convention of 1907, and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949.
Israel, its leaders and those who protect them - led by Trump Administration - did not realize the secret of the eternal relationship between the Palestinian and his land, and his willingness to sacrifice for it, the PNC said, especially in the difficult circumstances that all of humanity is facing because of the Coronavirus pandemic, which emphasized the ugliness of Zionist colonial and racist thinking and behavior, which took advantage of the sanitary conditions of the Palestinian people, as this occupation and the settlers continue to storm villages, cities and camps, and to arrest, attack, and kill Palestinians, demolish their homes and facilities, and build settlements in their land.
PNC extended a greeting of reverence and dignity to our steadfast Palestinian people under the flag of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and the leadership of President Mahmoud Abbas, who, along with his people, continues the journey of the martyrs, the wounded, and prisoners to achieve the goals of returning and establishing an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital, in accordance with the relevant international legitimacy resolutions.
