Gov’t slams Abbas’ decision to expunge religious affiliation from Palestinian ID


he Palestinian government in Gaza strongly denounced the decision taken by de facto president Mahmoud Abbas to remove religious affiliation from identity cards and accused him of paving the way for Kerry’s framework plan.

Political advisor to the premier Taher Al-Nunu said such step by Abbas is aimed at preparing the way for the execution of Kerry’s plan which demands the Palestinian authority (PA) to absorb Jewish settlers into the Palestinian society as binational citizens of its proposed state.

Nunu stressed that the Palestinian people would not accept such situation or allow Abbas to cede an inch of their land.

Deputy minister of the PA interior Hassan Alawi had stated in press remarks that Mahmoud Abbas had issued a decree to remove the religion section from Palestinian IDs as of February 11, 2014.
