Abbas advisor: "Racist' Israeli occupation is “driven by arbitrary historical and religious myths with no connection to the truth"
Text posted on the Facebook page of Supreme Shari’ah Judge Mahmoud Al-Habbash
Posted text: “Was [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s decision to ban American Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib from entering occupied Palestine his own idea, or on orders of US President [Donald] Trump and his administration?
And regardless, this racist and despicable decision shows the fragility of the ruling regime in Israel, and that it does not want anyone to see the conditions in which Palestine and its residents are living under this racist occupation that is driven by arbitrary historical and religious myths with no connection to the truth, and which is controlled by colonialist interests that use these myths to justify this colonialist aspiration.”
Mahmoud Al-Habbash also serves as PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Religious Affairs and Islamic Relations and Chairman of the Supreme Council for Shari'ah Justice.
