Abbas wil 'alle bezette gebieden terug'

Het ziet er niet naar uit dat 'goodwill gestures' ook leiden tot een mildere of gematigder houding aan Palestijnse kant.

RAMALLAH, December 15, 2008 (WAFA - PLO news agency)- 227 Palestinian Prisoners were released, Monday, from Israeli Prisons in honor of Eid Al-Adha, the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice.

'Our joy will be complete only when all 11,000 Palestinian imprisoned in Israel will be released,' said Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, as he greeted the hundreds of released Palestinian prisoners crossing over to the West Bank.

The majority of the prisoners arrived in the West Bank city of Ramallah, where they were received with grand festivities. 19 of the prisoners were transferred to the Gaza Strip, where Hamas disallowed any celebrations, since none of its operatives were among the prisoners released.

President Abbas added that the Palestinians would not accept any peace agreement with Israel, which will not give back all the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

He told the released Palestinian prisoners at Al-Muqata'a, the headquarters of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA), 'I promise you that the refugee issue will remain one of our priorities until their suffering ends.'

President Abbas stressed that any future peace treaty reached with Israel should include a solution to all the permanent status key issues, mainly Jerusalem, the refugees, the borders of the future Palestinian state, and the Jewish colonization.
