Fatah official: “Allah willing, our state will be from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea;” The Jews want “to gather so they can be annihilated”

Al-Alam TV (Iran)  |
Iranian Al-Alam TV program Guest and Dialogue, on International Al-Quds Day and US President Donald Trump's Middle East peace plan, hosting Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki: "All of this American recklessness and arrogance has crossed every line. From here I say: This proves that America is devoid of culture, devoid of history, and they think that if they massacred the American Indians, they will also massacre the Palestinian people. No! The Palestinian people will teach people that we are the difficult figure in the equation of the dispute, we are the children of the land, and we will decide in the end. Now, we have said to Israel: Take a state in the [1967] borders, and we are in these borders. But soon, this will no longer be. They have refused, we refuse- Allah willing our state will be from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, we will finish this matter, and we are willing to accept them in a democratic and secular state that contains Jews, Christians, and Muslims in an equal manner. And we do not want Israel and this Zionism. Let them go, we will finish it. We and the Jews are friends, in other words. We have Ilan Halevi (former advisor to PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat, PA deputy foreign minister, and Fatah Revolutionary Council member –Ed.), he was my assistant in [PLO] foreign relations; and we have Uri Davis, he is a member of the [Fatah] Revolutionary Council (Israeli Uri Davis converted to Islam in 2008 and is a Fatah Revolutionary Council member since 2009 –Ed.). In other words, not all of the Jews-"
Iranian Al-Alam TV host: "The problem is not in Judaism, the problem is in Zionism."
Abbas Zaki: "The Jews are a victim. There is no Jew that is afraid in the entire region. In Iran-"
Host: "In Iran there are Jews-"
Abbas Zaki: "And they have their own synagogues."
Host: "Yes, and they are not harmed, and nobody approaches them."
Abbas Zaki: "But this propaganda of theirs that says: 'We want a state for Jews in Palestine’ – this, I think, from a historical perspective, they want to gather so they will be annihilated. Nobody accepts them.”
Host: "Even Europe did not accept them."

Note: Zaki has previously made similar statements on Jews gathering in Israel in order to be killed: "These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an advanced instrument of evil. They say, the Holocaust, and so on - fine, why are they doing this to us? Therefore, I believe that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them. I am informing the murderer of his death."
