How PA responds to calls for abolishing Oslo Accords?

Alwaght- On the 22nd anniversary of the signing Oslo Accords and the 33rd anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, Palestinians took to the streets of Ramallah demanding an end to the declaration and holding the perpetrators of inhumane crimes against Palestinians accountable for their actions.

Protesters carried their message in the echo of their voices as they called for the abolishment of the Oslo Accords, signed in 1993 and 1995, between Tel Aviv and the Palestinian Liberation Organization marking the beginning of the Oslo process that resulted in the recognition of the so-called state of Israel by the PLO.

Wasel Abu Yusuf, a member of the executive committee of the Palestinian Liberation Front, said: “The Oslo Accords is doomed and the Palestinian people must end this agreement so they can proceed on the path of liberty and independence.”

The Palestinians are now demanding the leadership in Ramallah to abolish the agreement which was signed in a position of weakness especially that the Israeli regime has violated it time and time again.

As PA President Mahmoud Abbas is expected to deliver a speech at the end of the month, Palestinians are anticipating hearing his stance on the demands to put an end to the Oslo Accords.

PLO officials are pushing for this move in a bid to incite Palestinian public opinion amid the ongoing struggle for statehood.

If the agreements are abolished, the Palestinians would face some tough challenges because the Israelis hold so many of the keys to their livelihoods in the palm of their hands. In this case, the Israeli regime would not hesitate to avenge the dissolution of the Oslo Accords. First, the security cooperation between the Israelis and the Palestinians would end.

The infrastructure in the West Bank and levying taxes on imported and exported goods would suffer tremendous setbacks and that’s all part of the Israeli hegemony
Whether this aspiration becomes reality or not, what matters is the Palestinians’ right to freedom which can only be achieved through an end to the Israeli occupation once and for all.
