Peace and security will not be derived through walls and through incursions and through assassination. It will only be attained through a meaningful peace process that will end the Israeli occupation and establish a Palestinian state next to the state of Israel.
We condemn in the strongest possible terms the bloody massacre that was committed in Gaza, and we urge the U.S. administration to condemn this vicious escalation and to stop this Israeli government from destroying any hope for peace and reconciliation.
The Palestinian Authority will take every possible action if it proves that those behind this attack had anything to do, or were coming from, Palestinian areas. We don't condone the killing of civilians, either Palestinians or Israelis.
President Bush speaks of a Palestinian state (with) the June 1967 borders. Sharon is repeating what he said a year ago, the old stuff, the broken record of a long-term interim solution, 40 percent of the West Bank and 70 percent of the Gaza Strip. This will not fly.
This will have serious negative repercussions. We call upon the quartet [ the United States, European Union, Russia and United Nations] to exert every possible effort in order to introduce the road map for peace.
The fact is Israel is seizing this opportunity now and building this wall in order to confiscate land and to create policies on the ground and to have final negotiations by dictations rather than negotiations.
I know students who come to my office who are supposed to go to Amman or America in their fifth year or sixth year ... , ... The Israelis are telling them, 'You're not going to be allowed to leave unless you accept to collaborate with us.'
At a time when we are meeting with the international community in order to try to revive hope, to rebuild and reconstruct, the Israeli government seems to undermine these efforts and continues on the path of escalation. We urge the international community to provide Palestinians with ... protection.
We hope that the Israeli government will take into account that the torpedoing of the peace process, of the collapse of the peace process, will really harm not only the Palestinians, but also the Israelis and it will harm the whole region,
This is part of the reform program, an attempt to regain the confidence of the Palestinian people, and to proceed with reform in terms of accountability and transparency. We also hope we will be able to re-engage with the Americans, and with the Israelis as far as the peace process is concerned.
