Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki is perpetrating the same vicious anti-Semitism and hate that is being promoted by the Iranian regime in Tehran, as that government works to slowly expand its geopolitical influence in the region, and tightens its grip on local Arab extremists and terrorist organizations through financial backing and military support.
As with Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization, the Palestinian Authority’s leading Fatah faction — headed by PA leader Mahmoud Abbas — has a military wing, the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade terrorist organization, also a terrorist group.
Zaki said recently on a television program translated and recorded by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) that Palestine “will stretch from the [Jordan] River to the [Mediterranean] Sea, and we’ll be done with this whole story.”
Speaking on the Iranian Al-Alam TV on May 30, Zaki went on to say: “Historically speaking, [the Jews] seem to want to be gathered in order to be annihilated because nobody accepts them.”
But it’s an old, worn-out refrain for Zaki, who has been harping on the same theme on various Arab television programs for at least the past four years. The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) also downloaded and recorded a video clip of Zaki saying almost the exact same thing in 2014: “I believe that Allah will gather them (ed: the Jews) so we can kill them,” he told an interviewer at that time.
This year in May, Zaki also made anti-American remarks in the interview, saying that “the Americans in Iraq should have both their legs broken, because of their crimes,” and that “America has no culture and no history, and they think that if they slaughtered the Indians, they can slaughter the Palestinian people.”
