Refugees are a “political cause and not humanitarian”

Fatah Commissioner of Refugee and UNRWA Affairs Hassan Ahmed: “The right of return is a sacred right, individually and collectively, which has no statute of limitations... The refugees are not just those who were expelled from their land, but also all their offspring are refugees until Judgement Day. This is contrary to what the US wants: to empty the refugees of their meaning, thwart this, and turn the refugee commission into a humanitarian cause. Our cause is political and not humanitarian, because we have an identity of which we are proud. It is essential to return to our land and our homeland.”

Hassan Ahmed is member of Fatah’s Supreme Leadership Council in the Gaza Strip and serves as its Commissioner of Refugee and UNRWA Affairs
