    GAZA, (PIC)-- Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhoum, stressed that the right of return was not only a political and an individual right but that it was a fundamental right that no one has the right to negotiate or bargain over on behalf the people.

    In a statement to PIC on Thursday, Barhoum said that International Law gives our people the right to return to the towns and villages from which they were forced out and gives them the right to be compensated for the years denial, stressing that this was a moral, legal and national right.

    On the peace process, Barhoum said that 16 years of negotiations were an utter failure and showed that US democracy was fake, adding that this has caused this project to lose support and for the liberation project to gain support.

    He expressed confidence that 62 years after the Nakba the wind of change is in favour of the Palestinian cause and that prospects liberation and return of refugees from their exile is drawing closer.

    "Right of return" are code-words for the destruction of Israel. Israel absorbed 800,000 Jewish refugees in her tiny country, and millions of displaced peoples were absorbed into various countries after WW2. Monetary reperations are another matter though. My dad received a small pension from Germany (like $100 a month). He lost his parents, sisters, brother and entire family in the Holocaust.

    BERLIN, (PIC)-- Dr. Aziz Duweik, the speaker of the Palestinian legislative council (PLC), has affirmed conviction that the Palestinian refugees would return to their homeland one day.

    He told the eighth Palestinians in Europe conference held in Berlin in a televised address that the right of return was "inalienable", expressing appreciation over the Palestinians' efforts in the diaspora and their insistence on returning to their country.

    The PLC speaker said that the Nakba or catastrophe (usurpation of Palestine) was a passing event and would no doubt come to an end.

    The annual conference is attended by around 10,000 participants from various European countries, who renew their right of returning to their homeland Palestine.
