Fatah official falsely claims that Ben Gurion called for the elimination of Iraq, Egypt, and Syria

Official PA TV program State of Politics, hosting Fatah Commissioner of National Affairs and Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad
Fatah Commissioner of National Affairs and Fatah Central Committee member Azzam Al-Ahmad: “Several days ago I decided to return to the diaries of [former Israeli Prime Minister David] Ben Gurion. I read a section that I would like to repeat. What did Ben Gurion say about Israel? He said: ‘Our power is not in our nuclear weapons. Our power is based on the elimination of three entities that are around us’ (sic ., Ben Gurion did not make this quote or the following quotes attributed to him), and he enumerated them in order: Iraq, Syria, and Egypt. He continued: ‘And [we should ] create religious and ethnic conflicts in their midst.’ He continues and says: ‘Our power is not in our cleverness, but rather in the stupidity of the others.’”
