Abbas in Lebanon: Palestinians here are guests, will “certainly return to their homeland of Palestine”

Headline: "The members of our people in Lebanon emphasize that they stand behind the [PA] president"

"The members of our people in the refugee camps in Lebanon emphasized that they stand behind [PA] President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas.
The entrances to the refugee camps were decorated with flags of Palestine and Lebanon, pictures of President Mahmoud Abbas and Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat,’ and signs on which were written slogans that emphasize the refugee camps’ support of the president and that they stand behind him.
President Abbas yesterday [Feb. 25, 2017] continued his official visit to Lebanon for the third consecutive day. During the visit he met with President of the Republic [of Lebanon] Michel Aoun…
In a joint press conference with his Lebanese counterpart, the [PA] president thanked Lebanon for its support of Palestine and the Palestinian people in all of the international forums.

He said that he is convinced that Lebanon will continue to take care of them nicely and embrace them to its bosom (See note below –Ed.), until their certain return to their homes and their homeland of Palestine."

Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are poorly treated, facing severe legal restrictions and denied many basic human rights. They are not allowed to own property, are denied access to Lebanese health and education services – which they instead receive from UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East). They are completely denied employment in certain fields – including the medical, legal and engineering fields – and have difficulty obtaining work permits in general, and suffer from very poor living conditions.
Abbas: “Balfour Declaration is the reason for our tragedy,” demands Britain apologize

Excerpt of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' statements at the press conference with French President Francois Hollande on Feb. 7, 2017 in Paris

...I have discussed with His Honor [French] President [Francois] Hollande the inherent dangers in the possibility of the embassy of any state being transferred to Jerusalem, as this is a violation of international law. At this opportunity, we emphasize that we view East Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Palestine. We want it to be open to the faithful of all of the monotheistic religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam…
Yesterday the government of Britain announced that it is inviting Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] to participate in the celebrations of the 100th [anniversary] of the issuing of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) in 1917. The Balfour Promise is the reason for our tragedy, and this is a matter which surprises [us] and to which we object. We demand that the government of Britain apologize to the Palestinian people for the destruction and expulsion that it caused our people. We also demand that it recognize the State of Palestine, in accordance with the recommendation of the British House of Commons from 2014…
I told His Honor President [Hollande] that we stand by France and support the French and international efforts to fight terror and violence, which we condemn – whatever their form and source. This is because terror has no religion, and contradicts all religious, spiritual, and human values."

Abbas to French Senate: Britain must apologize for the Balfour Declaration, accepts Israel's right to exist

Official PA TV, excerpt from PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech to the French Senate on Feb. 8, 2017

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: "Yesterday [Feb. 7, 2017] the British government announced that it invited Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu] to attend the ceremonies to mark the 100th anniversary of the issuing of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) in 1917. This is a matter that surprises us and which we condemn. We demand that the British government apologize to the Palestinian people for the destruction and expulsion that were carried out against our people... The government of Britain did not have a connection to the Middle East and Palestine in 1917. It said ‘we will give Palestine to the Jews as a national homeland.’ Now it [Britain] comes and holds a ceremony in honor of this. We say that such a decision gives to one who has no right, from one who is not the owner. However, the State of Israel exists. We cannot deny this, it exists! It does! However, the government of Britain, which sinned against our right and wrote in the Balfour Promise [interrupts himself] - it completely denied us in the Balfour Promise and did not mention us at all – it was expected that it would apologize, no less and no more."

Abbas to French Parliament: “Not one person is against the Jewish religion,” just against those who “steal and occupy our land” 
Source: Official PA TV Live, Feb. 8, 2017
Official PA TV, excerpt of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech to the French Senate on Feb. 8, 2017

Abbas speaks about the UNESCO resolution of Oct. 13, 2016, which denied the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and said that it was not about religion -Ed.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: "We emphasize that we are not against the Jewish religion. We honor the Jewish religion. We honor the Bible, Allah's prophet Moses, and all of the prophets. All of the prophets that Almighty Allah sent, including the prophets of Israel, we honor all of them. We are not against the Jewish religion. If one of us were to say that he is against the Jewish religion, he would have committed heresy, he is a heretic, it is impossible. Not one person is against the Jewish religion. We consider what was done to the Jews due to the Holocaust as the most heinous human tragedy, especially [in light of the fact] that we have Jewish Palestinian citizens who are a fundamental part of our Palestinian people, the Samaritan Jews (Sic., Samaritans practice Samaritanism –Ed. See note below) in Palestine, Samaritan Jews who live among them. Nobody can discriminate against them, they live their lives like every Palestinian, enjoy their full rights as the Christian Palestinian and the Muslim Palestinian do. Perhaps you do not know of them. They are a minority called the Samaritan Jews who live in Palestine with us, on the land of Palestine. They have the same rights and the same obligations, no one differentiates them from anything. [They are] members of the [PA] Parliament, the [PA] government, members of everything. Therefore, we repeat that we are not against Judaism, but rather against the ones who occupy us and steal our land."

Abbas to foreign press: UNESCO resolution ignoring Jewish history on Temple Mount was “not about politics and religion”, Jerusalem is holy to all faiths

Headline: "During a press conference with his Italian counterpart in Bethlehem – the [PA] president: Peace is our strategic goal, and the key to it is the end of the occupation"

"During an interview with the Italian newspaper La Republica two days ago [Oct. 31, 2016]… [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas] emphasized: 'The UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) resolution talks about history and culture, and not about politics or religion. I wish to again repeat our position that Jerusalem is holy to the three religions – Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. When we say that East Jerusalem must be open to all religions, where is the problem? The UNESCO resolution talks only about the archaeological sites.'"

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) passed a resolution in Paris on “Occupied Palestine” on Oct. 13, 2016, with 24 countries voting in favor, 6 against, and 24 abstentions. The resolution was later approved by UNESCO's World Heritage Committee on Oct. 26, 2016, in a secret ballot in which ten countries voted in favor of the resolution, two opposed, eight abstained, and one country, Jamaica, was absent.
In the resolution UNESCO refers to the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, only as “Al-Aqsa Mosque/Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” and presents it only as a “Muslim holy site.” The resolution condemns “escalating Israeli aggressions” and Israeli “violations” at the site, and calls on Israel “to respect the integrity, authenticity and cultural heritage of Al-Aq?a Mosque/Al-?aram Al-Sharif… as a Muslim holy site of worship.” The resolution likewise refers to the Western Wall Plaza as the “Al-Buraq Plaza ‘Western Wall Plaza,’” adding quotation marks to the Jewish name for the site.

During a press conference that he held in Bethlehem with his Italian counterpart President Sergio Mattarella, His Honor (i.e., Abbas) expressed his constant willingness to make peace with Israel and to implement the two-state solution according to the resolutions of the international institutions and the Arab Peace Initiative. He expressed support for the international peace conference that France is working to convene at the end of this year [2016].
Likewise, he clarified that the role of UNESCO (the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) and its resolutions is to protect the global human heritage, and as part of this to prevent harm to it and to condemn the Israeli violations that are meant to change the nature and identity of East Jerusalem. He noted that the latest Israeli attacks, which attempted to mix religion and heritage, are incorrect and inappropriate.
President Mahmoud Abbas again emphasized the honor he has for Judaism, and the permanent call that Jerusalem be open to worship for all believers of the three monotheistic religions.
His Honor expressed support for every regional and international effort to struggle with and uproot the roots of terror, extremism, and violence, which are deserving of condemnation regardless of their source and nature.”

Abbas demands apology from Britain for the “ominous Balfour Promise” which facilitated “most terrible crime” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Sept. 22, 2016
Official PA TV broadcast of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech to the UN General Assembly on Sept. 22, 2016

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “One hundred years have passed since the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), according to which the British, Great Britain, unjustly gave the land of Palestine to another people. Thus they laid the foundation for the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of the Palestinian people and the loss of its land and its expulsion from it. They were not satisfied with this, but rather the British Mandate translated the promise into actions and policy that helped carry out the most terrible crime against a people that lived in security on its land, did not attack anyone, and did not participate in any war against anyone. Therefore we call upon Britain, on the 100th anniversary of this ominous promise and ominous deal, to draw the conclusions and learn a lesson, and accept on itself the historic, legal, political, material, and ideological responsibility for the consequences of this promise, including an apology to the Palestinian people for the Nakba, the tragedies, and the oppression that have afflicted it, and the correction of this historical tragedy and dealing with its consequences, at the very least by recognition of the Palestinian state. This is what is required of Britain after what it did to the Palestinian people.”

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
