Left-wing parties and non-governmental Palestinian organizations announced on August 25 a series of activities against the decision of accepting the U.S. invitation to hold direct peace negotiations with Israel over the permanent status issues.

Jamil Mezher, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) said in a written press statement that the resumption of the negotiations "is a real threat and a serious danger to the future of the Palestinian national strategy."

Mezher expressed pessimism towards the possibility of reaching a permanent peace agreement with Israel.

The negotiations are going on in accordance to certain terms, as well as threats and pressures from the United States and Israel, he said, adding that "such threats are serving Israel's interests. "

Tayseer Khaled, a member of the left-wing Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), warned of being dragged to the dangers of the direct peace negotiations between Israel and the PNA "by focusing only on security arrangements and exclude other substantial issues such as refugees."

Khaled called for establishing a comprehensive political reference to the experience of the negotiations with the Israeli side "in order not to repeat the same tragedies that happened in the previous rounds of the negotiations with Israel."
