PFLP member: PLO plan for Palestinian state within the '67 borders is a "temporary goal and does not mean that Palestine belongs to the Jews"

Headline: “If we had accepted the partition agreement 69 years ago, would our situation have been better? Wattan asks the opinions of analysts and the factions”
     “Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) political bureau member Khalida Jarrar, in her interview with the [independent Palestinian news] agency Wattan, referred to [UN] partition Resolution 181 and asked how the Palestinians could have accepted the partition resolution at a time when Balfour had given a promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration) that Palestine is the national homeland of the Jews! From this starting point, the refusal was a matter of principle as Palestine belongs to the Palestinians.
Jarrar denied the possibility of the implementation of the resolution at the time if the Palestinians had agreed to it, as the Zionist project is based on them settling in all of Palestine, and not in part of it.
Regarding the PLO, she said: ‘The national consensus plan of the PLO talked about a fully sovereign Palestinian state within the ‘67 borders as a temporary goal and does not mean that Palestine belongs to the Jews. It means that the matter depends on the right of return, in other words, a fully sovereign independent Palestinian state together with the right of all of the refugees to return to the homes from which they were expelled.’”

Khalida Jarrar – Palestinian Authority MP arrested by Israeli authorities on April 12, 2015, for being a member of the terror organization PFLP (Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine), for inciting to kidnap Israeli soldiers and inciting to terror. On Dec. 6, 2015 she was sentenced to 15 months in prison, fined 10,000 shekels, and given an additional suspended sentence of 10 months for incitement to violence and belonging to the PFLP terror organization.

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.
