Senior Palestinian Authority official Abbas Zaki (pictured) this week agreed with many Christians and Jews that it is by divine intervention that the Jewish people are being gathered in this land. But, for Zaki, the end goal is not the restoration of Israel, but rather its demise.
“I believe that Allah will gather [the Jews] so we can kill them,” Zaki told Palestinian Authority TV.
He went on to accuse Israelis of having “no religion and no principles, they are an advanced instrument of evil.”
In 2009, Zaki admitted on Lebanese TV that the ultimate goal of the two-state solution was the downfall of Israel.
Zaki is a member of the ruling Fatah faction’s Central Committee and currently serves as Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ commissioner for dialogue with the Arab world and China.
