Does not compute

As seen at the Elder of Ziyon, if you follow this link to MEMRI, you will see a video interview with Salah Al-Zawawi, Palestinian Ambassador to Iran, broadcast on Al-Kawthar TV* on 16 September 2014.

It includes stuff like this:

“…we would witness our great people’s return to their homeland, the land of their forefathers, and we would see the demise and the shattering of this alien entity. Nothing bonds them together, no chemistry. Only physics are at work in occupied Palestine. 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.”


“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.”

Man of peace? Partner for peace? You be the judge.

As usual, the Elder nails it:

But I thought that the PLO accepted Israel’s right to exist and that they no longer support military attacks against Israel!

Must be a bunch of slips of the tongue. This will no doubt cause a big scandal within the Palestinian diplomatic ranks and their media will denounce Mr. Zawawi’s anti-peace statements. Of course. Any minute now. Because they really want peace. They say it all the time in English. So it must be true. Let’s just ignore things like this.

And we may safely assume, the western media will ignore this. Hate speech that is not in English does not, apparently, count as hate speech.

[From Wikipedia: Al-Kawthar TV is a Tehran-based Arabic-language television channel. Launched in 2006 by Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, it broadcasts religious and cultural programs about 19 hours a day mainly for Arab audience in the Middle East and North Africa. The content of the programs is mainly about promoting Shia Islam. The TV station derives its name from the holy river Al-Kawthar. Al-Kawthar means “river in paradise”. Muslims believe that on the Day of Judgement all true believers are led to the river, where they drink only once to never be hungry or thirsty again.]
