Fatah official at event protesting US peace plan: Israel is our enemy, which will be "defeated" like the Mongols, Tartars and Crusaders

Official PA TV News, on a march in Tubas in support of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and against US President Donald Trump's as yet unpublished peace plan for the Middle East, interview with Fatah Secretary in Tubas Mahmoud Sawafta

Fatah Secretary in Tubas Mahmoud Sawafta: "For many long years, all of the projects that the enemies have attempted to impose on us and that the occupation has attempted to impose on us - and the largest of these projects was the Civil Administration – all of these projects have failed in light of the greatness of our people, the determination of our people, and in light of the adherence and unity of the masses of our people and the Palestinian leadership, with [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas at its head... Indeed this people is great and this blessed land that has a great people in it - all of the occupations that have attempted to impose their hegemony on this land have been defeated in this region as a result of this people’s determination. The Mongols, Tatars, Timur Lang, Crusaders, and English were defeated here. All of the occupations that came to the region were defeated before the walls of Acre, Napoleon was defeated (sic., only Napoleon was defeated before the walls of Acre). And we say today too that the deal of the century (referring to US President Trump's as yet unpublished peace plan for the Middle East –Ed.), which the American delegation has brought to the region in an attempt to impose it, will not pass."
