BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The deputy secretary general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine said Friday the biggest obstacle facing ceasefire talks is Israel's refusal to lift the siege on Gaza.

Qais Abd al-Karim, a member of the Palestinian delegation to Cairo, said Israel claims that it has a right to besiege the Strip as long as it is not disarmed.

Abd al-Karim said that Israel demanded all manufacturing of rockets and smuggling of weapons in Gaza Strip cease, which Palestinian negotiators refused.

He added that Hamas informed the delegation of it’s approval of having PA forces at the Rafah crossing.

He explained that the issue with salaries was one of the resolved points in negotiations, and there is no international or Israeli objection to it.

The DFLP is wrong. The main obstacle to successful negotiations is the Palestinians unwillingness to cede ANYTHING in return for lifting the embargo on Gaza. Provide a serious quid pro quo, or suffer for a long time.

Freedom is not negotiable. The Israeli's would not be in Cairo were it not for the resistance. Besides, an offer was given to have the PA guard crossings.

DFLP Qais Abd al-Karim is not thinking WIDE ENOUGH! The WHOLE ISRAELI occupation of Palestine for 67 YEARS needs to be lifted.All Palestine is legally entitled 2B free of occupation &oppression by Absolutist,worse-than-apartheid Zionism. Lifing the illegal siege on Gaza is only 1 war crime inside the LARGER CRIME of the Zionist occupation. Think NATIONALLY &HOLISTICALLY Qais,not factionally! Palestine is a NATION not 3 occupied enclaves with BARBED-WIRE! END ALL ISRAELI OCCUPATION,PERIOD!
