PFLP statement:

Comrade Maher al-Taher, member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine and leader of its branch outside Palestine,
said on August 20, 2010 that the goal of direct negotiations between Israel
and the Palestinian Authority is to liquidate the Palestinian cause, not to
reach a political solution, noting that it is clear from the events and
actions of Israel that it is impossible to reach a political solution with
an entity that demands total control of all aspects of Palestinian

Said Comrade Taher, "After 40 years of slogans demanding an independent
Palestinian decision, today the Palestinian Authority is a subject of the
U.S. and Israel and we are a nation of prisoners. This is a great risk to
the Palestinian cause." It was clear, Comrade Taher said, that the Authority
would enter these direct negotiations when the Higher Arab Follow-up
Commission approved of them, saying that the statement issued by the Quartet
in favor of these negotiations is farcical nonsense; it is clear that
nothing will come of these negotiations except for harm to the Palestinian
cause and such statements exist only to provide a fig leaf to cover the
return to negotiations and an excuse for a shameful betrayal.
