BEIJING, March 17 (Xinhuanet) -- Palestinians have rejected Prime Minister Netanyahu's comments. Senior Palestinian official says Netanyahu wants to gain more votes, while others say it's part of the propaganda for the elections.
"I think that the comments of Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of the Israeli occupation today show the strategy of the right and the extreme right parties of the occupation who want to prevent the establishing of a Palestinian state by taking steps on the ground like continuing the settlements, and that is what Netanyahu has mentioned today. Continuing the settlements prevents negotiations over Jerusalem and cancels the possibility of establishing an independent Palestinian state," said Wasel Abu Youssef, senior official of Palestine Liberation Organization.
"Netanyahu's comments that if he will win there will never be a Palestinian state are part of the Israeli election propaganda which reflect how extreme the Israeli society is," said Salah Al-bardawil, Hamas leader.
