The Palestinian Authority’s ambassador to Iran, Salah Al-Zawawi, recently said that all Israelis, other than “Palestinian Jews” should return to their homelands.
Al-Zawawi made the comments in an interview which aired on Kawthar TV on September 16, and was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
In the interview, the ambassador thanked Iran “for the training, financing, and weapons it has provided us”. Iranian officials have admitted that Tehran provided Hamas and Islamic Jihad with the technology necessary to make rockets, and a top Iranian military commander recently said that the Islamic Republic is sending weapons to Palestinian Arab terrorists in Judea and Samaria.
“All those people who have gathered to occupy our land must return to their countries of origin, leaving behind only the Palestinian Jews, with whom we had lived in love, respect, and fraternity,” said Al-Zawawi.
“I would like to reiterate my gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for the training, financing, and weapons it has provided us, as well as for its political and diplomatic positions regarding Palestine. Iran has helped us to attain our great victory,” he added.
“I am not saying that Palestine will be liberated tomorrow, but we have made real strides on the path to liberation. A missile with a 200 kilogram warhead will carry a warhead of 100 tons in the future, because weapons change as men change. We just need to cross the scientific threshold to get to our goal.”
