Abbas welcomes Neturei Karta, fringe Jewish anti-Zionist group

Official PA TV Live  |
Official PA TV Live broadcast PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech at the ceremony marking the anniversary of Yasser Arafat’s death:
“Greetings to these friends from Neturei Karta (i.e., extremist anti-Zionist ultra-Orthodox Jews who deny Israel's right to exist until the Messiah comes), from the Jews who stand by the Palestinian people and embody [the belief] that all religions belong to one god, that we do not distinguish between apostles, prophets, and religions, and are willing and able – and this is the proof – to live in the homeland as brothers reconciled: Each will go to his mosque, church, synagogue, or place of worship, and all will serve God. To these friends, welcome.”
