PA TV news broadcast: Israel was established by an "international conspiracy"

PA TV News broadcast: Report on the anniversary of the Karameh battle – "the first Arab victory against Israel"
PA TV reporter ends the news report by saying:
"The Al-Karameh [battle in 1968] was the turning point in restoring [Arab] honor following the defeats of the Arab armies against Israel, which had been established by an international conspiracy upon the ruins of a people which remains alive and whose voice rings out, thanks to the rifle of the rebels at the village of Al-Karameh in Jordan."

Note: In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
