Abbas Zaki is a senior official in Fatah. He is currently a member of the Fatah Central Committee and (since 2009) the Commissioner of Relations with Arab Countries and Relations with China. He was the PLO Ambassador in Lebanon until 2009 [Ma'an, independent Palestinian news agency, Sept. 10, 2009].

He remains a close associate of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and has also been chosen on several occasions to deliver speeches in Chairman Abbas’ name.
Abbas and Zaki’s close working relationship is an indicator of Zaki’s seniority in PA government, thereby making his statements and positions on various issues all the more significant. Palestinian Media Watch has documented numerous statements by Abbas Zaki glorifying terror and denying Israel’s right to exist. For instance, Zaki stated in 2011 on Al-Jazeera TV that that the goal is for Israel to be “removed from existence.” He went on to say that “this is not a [stated] policy. You can’t say it to the world. You can say it to yourself.”

The following section documents relevant statements made by Abbas Zaki:
Fatah official calls on Arab states to reexamine their relations with the US in light of US embassy move to Jerusalem 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 20, 2016
Headline: “Zaki: Transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem is a scandalous violation of the international institutions’ resolutions”
     “Member of the Central Committee of the Fatah Movement and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki called on the international community to take the required steps against the new American administration, if the promise of US President[-elect] Donald Trump to transfer the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is indeed implemented.
He added that if the American administration transfers its embassy to Jerusalem, this will constitute a scandalous and blatant violation of the international resolutions, and a clear violation of the American foreign policy on the issue, as the previous administrations have not dared to do this since the occupation of Jerusalem in 1967.
Zaki said this in an exclusive statement in response to the appointment of David Friedman as US Ambassador to Israel, and in response to his [Friedman’s] statements when he said that he eagerly anticipates traveling to Israel and working from within ‘Israel’s eternal capital,’ as he put it…
Zaki said that if the American administration does indeed do this, it will expose its true face – that it is completely biased in favor of the Israeli occupation, and is not interested at all in the peace process.
He added that Arab states that still rely on the American role in the region need to raise their voices and make their firm statements on the issue heard.
Likewise, Zaki called on the Arab and Islamic states to reexamine their relations with the US.”

Abbas advisor: "The Palestinian search and rescue forces took part in putting out the fires in Israel out of ethical and humane motives"

Official PA TV, Friday prayers at the PA’s presidential headquarters, sermon by Supreme Shari’ah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash in the presence of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Secretary-General of Abbas’ Presidential Office Al-Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim, and Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki

Supreme Shari’ah Judge, Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “In the last two days we have seen, and all the others have seen, the fires that have taken place (i.e., a wave of suspected Palestinian arson attacks in November 2016). We could have stood on the sidelines, and it is possible that no one would have blamed us. And it is even possible that some of the demagogues would have thought that this was the proper position to take. But our values, our religious values and our national cultural values, compel us to take part in putting out these fires. The Palestinian search and rescue forces took part in putting out the fires in Israel out of ethical and humane motives, because of the wonderful culture, and because of the most ethical direction of the Palestinian leadership. These are our values, and we will not deviate from them, even towards those who have done injustice to us and attacked us. Aggression is not a reason for aggression, or for renouncing values.”
Fatah official: "Israel has surpassed ISIS in its crimes," Israeli government permits "the burning of the mosques by the gangs of settlers" 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, Nov. 16, 2016
Headline: “Zaki: The decision to forbid [the sounding of] the Muezzin in Jerusalem will not pass”
     “Fatah Central Committee member and [Fatah] Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki warned against the danger of the Israeli decision to legislate a law forbidding [the sounding of] the Muezzin (i.e., the person who sings the Muslim call to prayer) in places of worship in the territories that were occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel), and to legalize outposts (i.e., a bill legalizing Israeli towns in the West Bank)…
Zaki emphasized that Israel has surpassed ISIS in its crimes, and it is currently behaving like a gang of criminals. There is no difference between the destruction of the mosques by ISIS and the ban [on the sounding of] the Muezzin and the burning of the mosques by the gangs of settlers under the official and security cover of the occupation government.”

On Nov. 13, 2016, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers was approved for a preliminary reading in the Israeli Parliament. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution. This bill is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not refer to any specific religion.
Other countries have already approved or attempted legislation for regulating the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to limit noise pollution. These include India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Bahrain, the United Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK, Austria, Norway, and Belgium, and the US. The PA has also passed legislation regarding the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to reduce noise pollution.

People are asking: ‘When we talk about this important and wondrous matter, which every Palestinian hopes will be realized, on what facts are we depending?’"
Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "There are two facts. The first fact is that we are depending on the justice of our cause, and its spiritual status. After all, the whole world knows that Jesus was Palestinian, and also, the Muslims know that Prophet Muhammad was led on the Night Journey from the Sacred Mosque [in Mecca] to the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

He added: 'This matter is very complicated, particularly because the ones who stand behind it are Israel and the US who place great obstacles before the investigation in order to thwart reaching the truth and announcing it.' ...

"Rebel Abu Jihad...
[His] love of the land increased out of pride, loyalty, and tenacity
In the name of Fatah he called [for] a revolution and Intifada
Rebel Abu Jihad
[He is] the son of the wound who made the revolution break out, the son of Fatah, the daring fighter
By his faith in the Almighty he made a revolution of anger and fire break out...
An honest one who did not die,
he will continue to be a conscience and a voice ? Abu Jihad...
He makes us proud with [his] courage and ability
The first bullet and the first stone
Rebel Abu Jihad...
Your last will was: 'Continue to attack'
On the day we parted from you, there were over a million [people at the funeral]
Our dear Abu Jihad..."

Op-ed by Fatah Central Committee Member and Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China Abbas Zaki

Headline: “Abu Jihad – the legend of the memory, and memories of the generations and the revolution”
       “Abu Jihad was a highly discerning fighter, who turned the revolution into a goal, who caused the occupation great concern and made it lose sleep when things became complex, and he became an inspiration, beginning with the first bullet, through the Al-Karameh battle, and ending with the first Intifada of 1987 (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993). When Abu Jihad is mentioned, the [pages of] the diaries turn over and there are hardly any stories without the commander’s spirit blended into them – there Dalal Mughrabi’s heroic operation (i.e., terror attack, 37 murdered) shattered the walls… On the anniversary of the death of the Prince of Martyrs [Abu Jihad], who headed the school of entrenchment in the trench of basic principles, his words come to me and beat at my ears – the intifada is a permanent decision and a daily act reflecting the rootedness of the Palestinian people and its renewed historic continuity, no voice is louder than the voice of the intifada and the occupation’s fate will be determined on the ground of Palestine alone.”
