October 5, 2017

Nayef Hawatmeh, the secretary-general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), discussed with the Secretary-General of the Arab Socialist Movement in Iraq the situation and the Palestinian and Iraqi crises.

Hawatmeh pointed out that the Palestinian crisis is multifaceted. Fifty years since the defeat of June 1967, Israeli occupation and settlement in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, 25 years of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations which have reached an impasse and from failure to failure on the Palestinian side, while the colonization and Judaization in Jerusalem and the West Bank and the siege of Gaza Strip are heavy and do not stop, and the colonization has been multiplied eight times since the failed Oslo Accords 1993, to the present day, and the Trump Administration is biased to the Zionist expansionist ambitions more than any American administration since the occupation of 1967 so far.

Hawatmeh stressed that the basic lesson of the "impasse" negotiations, requires the abortion of the Palestinian Authority's waiting policy and the futile fantasies about Trump's policy.

He added that under the futile division for 10 years between both parties of the division, the biggest loser is the people and the national resistance and the biggest winner is the Israeli expansionist enemy through the Judaization of Jerusalem and the annexation of the West Bank to the Greater State Project under the leadership of the extremist far-right Netanyahu government.

He called for supporting Egypt's current role, to end the division and rebuild a national unity government and to go to new presidential and parliamentary elections, in accordance with the decisions of the Preparatory Committee of the National Council on January 10-11, 2017, to elect a new National Council at home and the Diaspora with the full proportional representation.

Nasrawi stressed that the Iraqi accumulated crises from the US invasion in 2003, have no ethnic and sectarian solutions for them, and their latest manifestation was the referendum of Iraqi Kurdistan on independence, and the local and regional reactions on it.

Nasrawi added that the solution is to build the democratic federal state on the basis of equality in citizenship, democracy and social justice.

He also called for a comprehensive national dialogue between all components and currents of the Iraqi people, to resolve the "pending issues", between Baghdad and the Kurdistan region of Iraq, and for comprehensive democratic solutions, to build the democratic civil state, and overcoming the state of "ethnic and sectarian quotas".
