Abbas representative glorifies killers of 3 Israeli teens as Martyrs and says Israel assassinated them
Excerpt from the speech given by Fatah Central Committee Member and Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China Abbas Zaki, who represented PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas at a ceremony marking the 65th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China:
“I am happy and honored to participate in this ceremony as the representative of President Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the State of Palestine, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. In the name of the President, the members of the Executive Branch of the PLO, the members of the Fatah Central Committee and the members of its Revolutionary Council and in my name, personally, I convey our best wishes to you… The presence of a Chinese peace envoy in the Middle East constitutes an active contribution to and true guarantee for the establishment of peace and stability in the region. It indicates full support for the Palestinian people’s cause and its national and legitimate rights to its land and homeland, and strong support for the peace process in the Middle East – support for a fair political settlement that will lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state along the 1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital. In addition, it testifies to a strong Chinese position against the invading imperialism, which the US is leading in the region."
