Bardawil: A "Jewish state" is very dangerous because it eliminates the right of return of refugees

Gaza,(DRAH.ps)-- Hamas leader Salah Bardawil strongly criticized a speech delivered by U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday before the General Assembly of the United Nations, in which he used the term "Jewish state".

 Bardawil told Quds Press on Wednesday that U.S. President's remark about the Palestinian cause represents a serious transformation that threatens the fate of the Palestinian cause and a violation of the UN resolutions.

 He considered that the term "Jewish state" is very dangerous because it eliminates the right of return of refugees and stressed his movement's rejection of Obama's recent remarks.

 He added: "using this term violates the earlier resolutions of the United Nations, which recognizes Israel as a state on 2 conditions; the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes from which they had been displaced, and the respect of the indigenous citizens in their country, which was also a condition of the Balfour Declaration.

 The Hamas official stressed on the futility of the negotiations which is continuing in light of U.S. bias for Israel, and called on the Palestinian authority to stop the negotiations and search for a common national strategy to confront the occupation.

 Bardawil also asserted that all these plots will never deter or undermine the resistance.
