JNS.org Speakers at the international Palestinian solidarity conference called “Palestine: Manifestation of Muslim Ummah’s Unity,” held in Karachi, Pakistan, this week said that Israel is an illegitimate state that must cease to exist.

Mohammad Zazeh, who is described as one of the leaders of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the international Palestinian group headed by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, said the PLO has never recognized Israel as a legitimate state, and that the 1993 Oslo Accords should not be misunderstood to have constituted Palestinian recognition of Israel.

The U.S.-mediated preliminary peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians are set to begin soon in Washington, DC.

    If Israel gives up more land it will lead to Israels final war where 2/3 of the population will be killed. Islam commands are to lie and deceive until they gain strength, and to annihilate the Jews. Palestinians won’t stop until the land is ALL theirs. This generation has been brainwashed to think this way and are ready to die to accomplish this.
