Palestinian Official Rejects Kerry Peace Plan
PLO Executive Committee member Mustafa Barghouti issued a rejection of the peace plan outlined in Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on Wednesday, indicating how far from compromise the Palestinian leadership remains on the core issues. Barghouti said, “First, you cannot make the issue of Palestinian refugees only an issue of compensation,” claiming a “right of return.” “Second, recognition of Israel as a Jewish state…is totally unacceptable.” “Third, his formula about Jerusalem is absolutely something that the Palestinians cannot accept….East Jerusalem should be the capital of Palestine. How can it be a capital of two states?”  (Hamodia)
