Following are excerpts from an interview with Yasser Qashlaq, who is a Palestinian-Lebanese journalist and head of the Free Palestine Movement. The interview aired on Hizbullah's Al-Manar TV on May 17, 2011.

According to Egypt's Al-Ahram Weekly, Qashlaq is "the main donor" behind the Freedom Flotilla 2.[1]

Yasser Qachlaq: "The natural place for [Ehud] Barak is Poland, and the natural place for that idiot, Netanyahu, is Moscow, while the natural place for me is Safed. […]

"I would like to say to Ben-Gurion: You little boy, tomorrow, my little son will stomp on your grave. He will deport your remains to your true country in Europe, and we will return. […]

"Like Imam Khomeini said, back in the day, if each of us were to spit, we would drown out all five million of them. The number of Jews – those human pieces of filth – in my land equals one third of the people of the Nasr City neighborhood in Cairo. […]

"Netanyahu, who says that the Right of Return should be resolved outside Israel, should resolve his own problem by returning to his homeland, Moscow. These are human pieces of filth. Even Balfour, when he got carried away, and gave my land to those Jews, said that he was doing so to get rid of them. They brought us those pieces of filth, and we should throw them back to their countries." […]

Qashlaq in June 2010 interview: I Hope Our Ships Will 'Carry These Dregs of European Garbage Back to Their Own Countries' From Israel

Following are excerpts from a June 18, 2010 interview with Yasser Qashlaq, which aired on Al-Manar TV:

Yasser Qashlaq: "Whenever that criminal gang of Israeli pirates seizes a ship, I become more optimistic that the day will come when these ships will carry these dregs of European garbage back to their own countries.

"Let Gilad Shalit return to Paris. Let those murderers return to Poland. Once they are back there, we will hunt them down to the end of the world, and prosecute them for their massacres, from Deir Yassin to this day." [...]

"I would like to say something to the Israeli people."

Interviewer: "To the settlers."

Yasser Qashlaq: "Yes, to that gang of criminal murderers. Board the ship we are sending you, and return to your countries. Don’t be misled by the Arab leaders or the moderate camp. You will never be able to make peace with us. Our children will return [to Palestine]. There is no reason for coexistence. Even if some of our leaders or regimes sign [peace] with you – we will never sign. Do not be misled by these regimes. Return to your countries."
