Fatah official: We will obliterate Israel “If enemy [Israel] and America continue their arrogance”

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "Fatah is the path to the return… The flag will not be dropped. If we fail, our sons, grandsons, and daughters are the ones who will wave the flag. If in a situation of peace, then [they will wave it] above Jerusalem, the towers of its mosques, and its churches. But if this enemy [Israel] and America continue with their arrogance, then [our descendants will wave it] above Jaffa, the Negev, the Galilee, the Carmel, the Triangle, etc. (i.e., all in Israel). Land that we don't restore – we are not worthy of it."

Jaffa, the Negev, the Galilee, the Carmel, the Triangle are all places in Israel within the Green Line.

Abbas Zaki spoke at a ceremony arranged by Fatah in Hebron for students who took the matriculation exams. Zaki also holds the position of Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations.
