Israelis participating in the Jerusalem Day flag march are "ISIS members," lies PA Daily

Excerpt of a column by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

 

Headline: “The flag march of ‘the Israeli ISIS members’ – a blessing in disguise!”

 

 

 

 

“The heads of the [Israeli] occupation system well understand that the Palestinian flag flown anywhere on the historical and natural land of Palestine opposes their reality, which was created by force of occupation, organized state terror, and unlimited colonialist support from colonialist states that established [their state] and are interested in having them continue to provide their services as agents. [They understand] that the Palestinian flag contradicts their claims of sovereignty over East Jerusalem in particular and Palestine in general – from the Galilee to the Negev (i.e., regions in Israel), from Jericho to the shores of Jaffa (i.e., an Israeli city).

 

The settlers invaded East Jerusalem and the Jerusalem Noble Sanctuary (i.e., the Temple Mount), and they entered it under the protection of the occupation army. They waved their flag and held Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) rituals, and afterwards they gathered at the Damascus Gate and marched in the alleys of the Old [City of] Jerusalem. All of these things are a tragedy, but they also have a benefit; their foolish leaders such as [Israeli Prime Minister] Naftali Bennett, [Israeli Parliament Member] Itamar Ben Gvir, and [former Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu did not pay attention to a very important matter, and it is that through this mass of settlers, most of whom are openly armed… and through the arrival of armed military divisions as if they were in the battlefield, they are debunking their own talk of imposing sovereignty over Jerusalem, and revealing the failure of their Zionist project.”
