"The Palestinian people will never accept another Nakba," PLO Executive Committee member, Dr. Hanan Ashrawi said on Tuesday.

In a statement to the press on the 46th anniversary of the Six Day War, Ashrawi stated: "Our struggle will continue until we acquire our legitimate right to self-determination and witness the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital."

"The time has come to end the historical injustice of the Palestinian people.  The world must shoulder its political, legal and ethical responsibilities and hold Israel accountable for its violations of international and humanitarian law.  Granting Palestinians their right to statehood and ending the occupation are conditions for achieving peace in the region and beyond.  A need for justice and historical redemption in Palestine is more urgent now than ever," concluded Ashrawi.
