Palestinian president widely condemned for 'anti-Semitic' comments

Friday, 04 May, 2018

"Let Abbas's vile words be his last as Palestinian leader", the New York Times wrote while calling on him to resign.

Abbas also claimed that Israel is a European colonial project, that European Jews have "no historical ties" to Israel, and that "those who sought a Jewish state weren't Jews".

U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said Abbas has "reached a new low in attributing the cause of massacres of Jewish people over the years to their 'social behavior relating to interest and banks.' To all those who think Israel is the reason that we don't have peace, think again".

According to Nazzal, Abbas has ensured that the Palestinian resistance against Israel's decades-long occupation did not have a religious component.

"And third, I said a Labour government in Britain would immediately review the sale of arms by the United Kingdom to Israel to ensure that none of the weapons sold by our country are being used by the Netanyahu government to attack innocent Palestinian civilians in Gaza or anywhere else", she said. "They say 'it is because we are Jews'".

He added: "President Abbas has shown a commitment to non-violence and a two-state solution".
