      The Right of Return Congress
 
  • International Response to the Bush Declaration on the Palestinian Right to Return

Update: In a short period of time, this International Response to the declaration made by President George W. Bush on vital issues regarding the Palestinian people has received massive support from organizations, intellectuals, and grassroots leaders worldwide.  As indicated below, the Palestinian Right to Return movement in its entirety and organizations representing Palestinian refugees and those in exile stand firm and unified in their demand to exercise the inalienable right to return.

 

We thank you for your support thus far -- But we are asking you to take yet another step in advocating for this fundamental right for the Palestinian people, by actively spreading this International Response and by asking your respective organizations and friends to join. 

 

We ask that each one of us attempt to reach out to 5 more, and to get the endorsement of our respective organizations and institutions.  It is time that the Right of Return for the Palestinian people is normalized within the international community!

 

This is a vital time, and we need your active support!

 

On May 15, 2004, this response will be sent to all members of the United Nations General Assembly and other relevant parties.  We intend to show an international consensus, as we keep on building a movement for justice.

 

Please join in this important campaign!  We encourage institutional, organizational, and individual endorsements. 

 

We ask that you post this response and pass it along as widely as possible.  For endorsement, please write to: responsetobush@yahoo.com)

 

*****************************

International Response
In response to the most recent declaration given by President of the United States, George W. Bush, to Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, on April 14, 2004, at the White House, we, the undersigned affirm the full individual and collective inalienable Right to Return of the Palestinian Arab People to their homes, property and land of origin.  We assert in no uncertain terms that such a fundamental right is inviolable as it is based on the unbreakable natural belonging of a people to their property and place of origin, as enshrined in international law.  Accordingly, we hold that the Palestinian Right to Return is an indispensable obligatory prerequisite for the achievement of any justice and peace.


We consider any attempt to weaken, lessen, or alter such a right in any form through any proclamations or agreements between any parties to be counter to the human, political, civil, and national collective right of the Palestinian Arab People. Hence, such an attempt, along with its implications and ramifications, are null and void in total, regardless of the passage of time and the entities entering into such agreements or issuing such proclamations.


On November 2, 1917, Great Britain issued the Balfour Declaration that promised Palestine to a European settler colonial movement, amounting to the inevitable dispossession and exile of the Palestinian people. Today, at a time when another Deir Yassin massacre is carried out in Fallujah in an attempt to cement the US occupation of Iraq, the Bush Administration is simultaneously attempting to complete the Balfour project of 1917 by nullifying the Palestinian Right to Return, and by giving an international cover to the creation of a truncated and walled collection of Bantustans that would normalize and legitimize the process of ethnic cleansing.


Recognizing this existential and imminent danger, we stand against this new Balfour Declaration, and reaffirm our unwavering position that the Palestinian Right to Return is an inextricable anchor and prerequisite to full Palestinian self-determination, freedom, and liberty.


(This public declaration will be submitted to all members of the UN General Assembly and other relevant parties on May 15, 2004. For endorsement, please write to: responsetobush@yahoo.com)
