PA archbishop: No solution without right of return

Headline: "Archbishop Atallah Hanna: Everyone must understand the scope of the challenges surrounding Jerusalem"

"His Honor Head of the Greek Orthodox Diocese of Sebastia Archbishop Atallah Hanna… emphasized today [Sept. 29, 2019] while receiving a delegation from the Deheisheh refugee camp [in Bethlehem] that the right of return is the essence of the [Palestinian] cause, and we cannot speak about the Palestinian cause and the independent Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem without highlighting the right of return. This is because the independent Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem will not exist without the return of these Palestinian refugees, and there will be no solution without first realizing the right of return; and this right, which has no statute of limitations, comes before everything else."
