Fatah spokesman claims Israeli flag represents Israeli rule from the Nile to the Euphrates
Fatah's official spokesman Ahmad Assaf: "Did you know that Israel still today has no borders? It has no borders. Even the two stripes on its flag [represent Israeli rule] from the Nile to the Euphrates... The Palestine battle for the Arab region and the Arab nations is not a pan-Arab battle but a national battle [of each Arab country]. Because the Palestinian nation is the first line of defense against Israel's plans and aspirations."

Assaf reiterated the libel in an interview on Egyptian TV:
Fatah's official spokesman Ahmad Assaf: "The Israeli flag still speaks [of rule] from the Euphrates to the Nile. Look at the Israeli flag... They still believe in the Greater Israel. As the first line of defense, the Palestinian nation is not merely defending itself, but the entire Arab nation. For this reason, the Arab nation's defense or standing (with the PA) is certainly a pan-Arab duty, but at the same time, it is the national duty of each Arab country, because Israel's aspirations go beyond [its] borders."
