PNC commemorates Palestinian revolution anniversary, urges unity
-

The Palestine National Council (PNC) said Saturday that the Palestinian revolution is pressing ahead with the struggle to regain Palestinian rights, foremost of which is the right of return, self determination and setting up an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital.

The Amman-based PNC, parliament in exile, said in a statement marking the 52nd anniversary of the Palestinian revolution on Sunday that the Palestinian people continue to garner more international support to their cause while Israel's isolation grows.

"The flame of the revolution is still alight, and our people's cause is attracting more international support day by day to get rid of the occupation and set up the (Palestinian) state", it said.

"On the other side, the occupation's isolation and siege is increasing due to its arrogant and racist policies and assaults on our people, as well as its repudiation of all (peace) initiatives and rejection of international legitimacy resolutions", it said.

It said the global support to the just Palestinian cause amounted to consensus, which was underlined by the overwhelming vote for UN Security Council resolution 2334 which labeled Israeli settlements as illegal and illegitimate and demanded an immediate halt to construction in the occupied West Bank.

The statement saluted the Palestinians' steadfastness inside their land and in the diaspora, and called for an end to internecine Palestinian divisions and disunity, which, it said, undermines the "national enterprise" and political unity, and to rally behind the Palestine Liberation Organisation, the sole and legitimate representative of the Palestinians.
