Senior Fatah official: "The whole world knows that Jesus was Palestinian"

Official PA TV program Going to the Conference, hosting Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki
Official PA TV host: "We need to begin to realize the dream of independence from here, and the whole people, led by [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas [will do this]. 2017 needs to be a year of realizing our independence, and establishing a sovereign state and self-determination. 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."
