Israel is “the murderer Nazi colonialist” in PA daily column

Excerpt of a column by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for official PA daily and former advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs


Headline: “Thanks to the neo-fascists”


“Leader of the ‘Otzma Yehudit’ [party Israeli Parliament Member Itamar Ben Gvir] was a member of the group of [former Israeli Parliament Member] murderer Rabbi [Meir Kahane] (sic., Rabbi Kahane did not commit murder), and he was accused in 2007 of supporting a terror organization (refers to him being charged for holding a sign reading: “Expel the Arab enemy” and "Rabbi Kahane was right: The Arab MKs are a fifth column” -Ed.). He is exactly like all the Zionists who have flipped the equations of terms and values – the owner of the right, the homeland, and the history (i.e., the Palestinians) has become a ‘terrorist,’ and the murderer Nazi colonialist has become ‘the owner of the right’ and completely innocent.”


Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul is also a former PLO Central Council member.


Meir Kahane - American Israeli rabbi with right-wing views, who was elected to the Israeli Parliament in 1984. His views included the belief that Arabs should be “transferred” out of Israel - preferably by encouraging them to leave and compensating them for their property, but if that was unsuccessful, then by deportation. In 1988, Kahane’s party, Kach, was banned in Israel for being racist and anti-democratic. Kahane was assassinated on Nov. 5, 1990, by an Egyptian American.
