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.”

      “Fatah Central Committee member [and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki] said: ‘The battle with the occupation is open, and we must not let internal matters distract us from the struggle with it.’ He revealed that the occupation authorities caused the death of released prisoner Na’im Al-Shawamreh as a Martyr (Shahid), after giving him an injection in the mouth four years ago which caused muscular dystrophy and led to his death as a Martyr.
Zaki revealed yesterday in an interview with Radio Mawtini that medical reports have indicated that this injection is life threatening. Based on these reports, he clarified that receiving this injection causes muscular dystrophy, and then the lifespan is limited to a period of four years. Zaki emphasized that this is what happened to Martyr Al-Shawamreh, and noted that this case already happened in the past with Martyr President Yasser Arafat (the reference is to libel that Israel poisoned Arafat –Ed.).’”

“Fatah Central Committee member [and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations] Abbas Zaki emphasized in an exclusive interview with [Iranian TV] channel Al-Alam that the ties between Iran and Palestine are true and pure, and noted that the ties are ties of struggle, self-sacrifice, and getting rid of all types of dictatorship, as the slogan of the Islamic revolution was ‘first of all Palestine,’ and the Iranians still celebrate Quds Day (i.e., Jerusalem Day) until this day…

He added: ‘We are Muslims and Iran represents the height of support for Jerusalem and the liberation causes, which was expressed by the courage with which it swept “Israel” out of Lebanon in 2000, and during the war it waged against Lebanon in 2006.’


Zaki emphasized the importance of the continuation of the ties… and added: ‘Anyone who is against the US and "Israel” is together with us in the same pit, and anyone who stands by the US and ”Israel,” we might be unwillingly forced to deal with them.’”

Lyrics:
"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..."

Member of Fatah Central Committee, Abbas Zaki: "This people is greater than its leadership. The determination, willpower, and willingness to die for a dignified life are present among the youth who carried a knife after the disappearance of the Arab leadership, and even the Palestinian. They performed a miracle by imposing a curfew within Israel with knives and rocks. Blessings to the mothers and fathers who gave birth to those who are marching on the path of light, without anyone having demanded it of them... [ Zaki to the audience] I bless you sincerely with all my heart, in the name of the Fatah Central Committee and in the name of the leadership, which has decided – after giving everything for peace – to define the options against this Zionist enemy, and has ended the security coordination. Anyone who talks about renewing the relations with Israel is not a Palestinian and not a member of Fatah!"

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.”

Sign at ceremony: "Palestinian National Liberation Movement – Fatah
Welcome to the Return to the Roots ceremony
To mark the anniversary of [the death of] Martyr (Shahida) Dalal Mughrabi, Bride of Palestine, and her comrades"

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "She [Dalal Mughrabi] was chosen from among the young men to be the leader of the mission, and the director of the mission was [the person] of stature, Abu Jihad, who chose her to lead this mission. This mission is what established the Republic of Palestine for about 50 hours. Israel did not know what happened, they faced difficulties, even Ehud Barak (a military unit commander at the time, later served as Prime Minister of Israel –Ed.) when he arrived and found she was a woman, he 'stepped on her head.' They did not expect that the heroism, courage and will would be present in this mission leader [Dalal], when they found out she was a woman."

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
