Gaza, ALRAY - Ministry of Culture said “the survival of Oslo agreement is a major threat to the Palestinian people and their cause,”
The ministry stressed Friday in a statement on the 20th anniversary of signing Oslo agreement on the right of return, which is guaranteed by all international laws and conventions,”
It called for standing against Israeli settlement, which “eats up Palestinian land under the umbrella of Oslo,”
The ministry also called for a stand in the face of Judaizing occupied Jerusalem and obliterating its Islamic and Christian landmarks, warning of passing such plans through so-called peace talks.
It stressed the need to resist this agreement intellectually and culturally with the efforts of Palestinian intellectuals and writers.
Thanks to this agreement, negotiations are still grinding the Palestinians and devour the land; its statesmen and engineers of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) are still roaming the political space of Palestine in vain.
The statement advocated the necessity of “getting rid of the consequences of ‘the notorious Oslo Agreement’ and, driving its signatories and defenders out of our political life, and ridding the Palestinian people and cause from the clutches of this deadly cancer,”
Oslo was the first face-to-face agreement between the Israeli occupation and the PLO under which the PLO granted (Israel) 78% of historic Palestine.
Palestinian prominant intellectual Edward Said said shortly after the agreement that “the Oslo Accord was basically ‘an instrument of Palestinian surrender’ and ‘the second victory in the history of Zionism’ following the establishment of Israel in 1948 on the Palestinian territory,”
According to Said, the PLO’s recognition of Israel by virtue of the Oslo Agreement granted Israeli control over the territories it occupied during the 1967 war, and further allowed Israel the right to negotiate on the remainder of the territories that it annexed by power during the Six-Day War.
