Ignoring Hamas atrocities, Fatah official says Israel is worse than Nazis

Fatah leader:

  • Hamas terrorist murderers are “fighters of our people” who “defend freedom” and “the Arab and Islamic nation’s honor”
  • It is Israel who is not following “the divine and international laws”

“[Their] crimes… have surpassed the Nazis’ crimes during World War II. They ascribe no importance to… the international laws and are destroying everything…”

The above was said two days after the Hamas terror organization massacred and murdered over 1,300 Israelis – including beheading babies, executing young men with their hands tied, raping young women, murdering mothers and fathers in front of their children, and dragging elderly people out of bed to shoot them and post the pictures on social media. Hamas terrorists also wounded over 3,300 and kidnapped at least 126 hostages whose fate is unknown.

But the Nazi comparison was not made about Hamas but about Israel and by a senior Fatah official!

Referring to Israel’s self-defense and retaliation against Hamas, and bombing Hamas’ terror infrastructure after the massacre on Israeli civilians, Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki said it was Israel who was worse than the Nazis. In addition, he referred to Hamas terrorist murderers as “fighters of our people” who “defend freedom” and “the Arab and Islamic nation’s honor,” while accusing Israel of not heeding “divine and international law”:

Text by Zaki: “In a direct live broadcast on the Arab and global TV screens and for this the fourth consecutive day, Israel is committing the most despicable crimes against the Palestinian civilians… in an attempt to rehabilitate its image over its bitter defeat against the fighters of our people who have been defending their freedom and the justice of their cause for more than a century, and are sacrificing their lives in defense of the Arab and Islamic nation’s honor…

The Zionist entity’s crimes against our people have surpassed the Nazis’ crimes during World War II.They ascribe no importance to the divine and international laws and are destroying everything in the Gaza Strip…

Be completely certain that our fighting Palestinian people will never surrender, will not wave a white flag, and will continue to wave the flag of freedom until achieving victory for our people and our Arab and Islamic nation.”

The following are additional reports on Zaki’s response to Hamas’ terror war on Israel:

Abbas Zaki also serves as Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations and also conveyed this false narrative to Chinese ministers:

Hamas war on Israel October 2023 - Over 1,100 Israelis, including over 800 civilians, were murdered and over 5,000 wounded, in addition to approximately 251 who were abducted into the Gaza Strip (including 135 later released or liberated - 19 of them whose bodies were retrieved - and at least 41 who were killed and had their bodies held), in a Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists and thousands of Gazan civilians broke through Israel's security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023. During the massacre the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents. Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords to counter the Hamas terror threat. Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas' terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north. Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war. A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas. The deal was subsequently extended with additional releases, until Hamas violated the agreement and resumed attacking on Dec. 1, 2023.
