Fatah official: Calling Jews "descendants of apes and pigs" is "not ‎part of our values"

Awdah TV, Fatah-run  |

Fatah-run Awdah TV program Personal Interview hosted Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muwaffaq Matar
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Muwaffaq Matar recounts how, in 2007, after having written an article on the Gaza revolution, he was criticized by a group of Hamas-affiliated students.

Fatah Revolutionary Council member, Muwaffaq Matar:
 "They [Hamas] said [about me]: 'It seems that Muwaffaq Matar is a descendant of apes and ‎pigs, physically and mentally.' This is racism... Naturally, they use this expression [to refer] to ‎the Jews. This is unfortunate. We also reject these expressions, because they are not part of our ‎values, absolutely not.‎"
