Fatah senior Official tells blatent lie: "The Israeli motto that appears in the Israeli Parliament is ‘Israel from the Nile River to the Euphrates River’"

Headline: “Abu Al-Naja: The launch of the Palestinian revolution put an end to the Israeli dream of spreading from the Nile [River] to the Euphrates [River]”

 

 

 

 

“In an exclusive interview conducted by a reporter of [the official PA daily] Al-Hayat Al-Jadida with Ibrahim Abu Al-Naja, Gaza District governor and a prominent senior Fatah Movement official who has served in many roles in Fatah, Abu Al-Naja emphasized that Fatah – which set out in a heroic military operation under the name ‘the Al-Asifa forces’ (i.e., Fatah military unit), the famous ‘Eilabun operation’ (i.e., attempted bombing of the Israeli National Water Carrier), during which Ahmad Musa Salameh (i.e., Fatah terrorist killed by Jordanian soldiers) died as a Martyr – is the first pure Palestinian national movement…

 

He said: ‘Unfortunately, we are working against ourselves. There are many parties who are taking pains to continue the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, and foremost among them Israel and the US, and this is at a time when some of the Arab states are turning to normalization with Israel (refers to Abraham Accords; see note below -Ed.). This was a knife in the back of us all.’ …

 

He noted that the PLO, which Fatah leads, stopped the Israeli spread, as the Israeli motto that appears in the Israeli Parliament is ‘Israel from the Nile [River] to the Euphrates [River]’ (sic., this is not an Israeli motto appearing in the Israeli Parliament).

 

 

 

 

Bombing of Israel's National Water Carrier - On Jan. 1, 1965, Palestinian terrorists attempted to bomb Israel's National Water Carrier. This was the first attack against Israel carried out by Fatah. Fatah refers to the attack as the “Intilaqa”, meaning “the Launch” of Fatah.

 

Ahmad Musa Salameh - Palestinian terrorist known to Palestinians as the “first Martyr of the modern Palestinian revolution.” Salameh was involved in Fatah's first terror attack against Israel on Jan. 1, 1965, which targeted Israel's National Water Carrier. Salameh was killed by Jordanian soldiers following the attack.

 

Israeli peace agreements with the UAE and Bahrain (the Abraham Accords), Sudan, Morocco, and Bhutan – an agreement normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was announced on Aug. 13, 2020, under the mediation of US President Donald Trump. Following the UAE, Bahrain reached a similar peace agreement with Israel, as was announced on Sept. 11, 2020. The agreements were signed at the White House on Sept. 15, 2020, by Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and Bahraini Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani. Pursuant to the Abraham Accords, Israel and the UAE will discuss bilateral cooperation on a number of topics. In exchange for the agreement, Israel agreed to suspend its previously announced plans to apply Israel's civilian law to parts of Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley as per the Trump peace plan. The US announced that “Muslims throughout the world who wish to come in peace to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque, will now be able to fly to Tel Aviv through Abu Dhabi to do so and will be welcomed.”

On Oct. 23, 2020, Sudan also formally agreed to normalize relations with Israel. Israel reached similar normalization agreements with Morocco on Dec. 10, 2020, and Bhutan on Dec. 12, 2020.
