Our people will not forgive those who committed the Balfour Declaration crime and attacked our rights

The Palestinian National Council called on Britain to recognize the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital and the right of return of the refugees to their homes in accordance with the relevant resolutions of international law.

The Palestinian National Council, in a statement issued on the occasion of the 101 anniversary of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, renewed its call on the British government to correct its wrong doing when it unlawfully granted Jews the right to establish their homeland in Palestine which constituted a historic unprecedented injustice, ethnic cleansing, aggression and violation of the principles of law. It is also a violation of the inalienable rights of our people guaranteed by international conventions and laws as well as hundreds of United Nations resolutions.

The Palestinian National Council stressed that the Palestinian generations will not forgive those who committed this ongoing crime, which was the cause for the displacement of the Palestinian people from their homeland and their suffering in the refugee camps and in the Diaspora.

The Palestinian National Council added that this crime was the platform for all the crimes committed against the Palestinian people, the latest of which is the so-called "deal of the century" which aims to eliminate the Palestinian cause and the implementation of the rest of the Balfour Declaration in an attempt to end our rights to establish our independent state for Palestinians who were displaced by Zionist terrorism.

The Palestinian National Council stressed that our people will not relinquish the means of defending their rights and regaining them. Foremost the right to self-determination on their land and to confront all Israeli policies and measures of occupation. All projects and plans aimed at striking our national project will be defeated with the steadfastness of our people who will maintain their legitimate resistance for freedom, Independence and the right of return.
