Fatah official propagates libel that Israel wants to rule “from the Nile to the Euphrates”

Official PA TV Live  |
Azzam Al-Ahmad, a member of Fatah’s Central Committee, spoke on a PA TV Live broadcast from a Jordanian celebration of Fatah Day.
Azzam Al-Ahmad: “Our campaign against the Zionists was not a Palestinian-Israeli campaign, but rather an Arab campaign against the forces of old-style colonialism and the Zionist dream, [a campaign] that aimed to defend the entire Arab region. We, as Palestinians, remain the spearhead, and we were never anything else… We defended Lebanon, we defended Medina. Do we not know that they (i.e., the Jews) dream of a state reaching from the Nile to the Euphrates? ...We say to our brothers who do not grasp the reality of the situation (lit. 'who have been struck by color blindness'): ‘We are involved in a campaign of the entire Arab nation. We aren’t in a campaign that is Palestine’s alone. This puts us all in the same trench.’”
