Op-ed: Israel, “the protégé of Zionism and colonialism,” which replaced the Palestinians with “Zionist gangs,” is a “cancerous gland filled with the poisons of civil wars" in the body of the Arab nations

Excerpt of op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member and Secretary of the Fatah branch in Lebanon Rifat Shanaah

Headline: "Will the Arabs succeed in giving the Palestinian cause priority over the Israeli terror?"
      "The Arab countries without military capabilities have tried to convince themselves that the Israeli entity, the protégé of Zionism and colonialism, has taken what it wants, carried out its criminal plot against the land of Palestine, expelled most of the Palestinian people, and replaced it with Zionist gangs and groups that were brought from all over the world by the British Mandate, the spiritual father of this racist entity. However, this entity was planted in the heart of the Arab homeland as part of a political plan that will not be satisfied with uprooting the Palestinian people from its land, erasing its national identity, and destroying its political entity. It has a larger, more comprehensive, and far more dangerous goal. This racist entity, which is full of aggression and hatred against the existence of the Arab nation, has begun to weaken the body of this nation by existing as a cancerous gland filled with the poisons of civil wars, and has stood behind every one of the conflicts that the Arab world has been experiencing, particularly since 2010."
