Palestinian woman echoes Palestinian leaders: Promised Land = Land where Jews will be gathered to be exterminated

Fatah-run Awdah TV reporter: "Dear viewers, our question today is: Are you optimistic about the rise to power of American President Trump? [...]
Palestinian woman: "We always put our hopes in Allah. This is the promised land. The Jews think it is promised to them, but what was promised was to gather them in order to exterminate them by a divine decree." [Fatah-run Awdah TV, Pulse of the Homeland, Feb. 19, 2017]

The woman’s message is repeating both Fatah and Hamas leaders' interpretations of Islam:

Member of Fatah Central Committee Abbas Zaki: "These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an advanced instrument of evil... I believe that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them."  [Official PA TV, March 12, 2014]
Hamas religious official Muhammad Salah Abu Rajab: "Here are the Zionists, who have gathered from all around. They occupy and usurp Jerusalem and its environs, and so the promise of Allah is realized: 'We will bring you forth in [one] gathering' (Quran, Sura 17:104) so that it will be easier to slaughter and kill you."  [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Aug. 22, 2014]
