Dr. Anis Al-Sayyegh, former head of the PLO Research Center appeared on the Iranian TV channel directed at the Arab world, Al-'Alam TV and talked about Jews. Following are excerpts from his comments:
Anis Al-Sayyegh: I do not believe that there is such a thing as a Jewish mentality. As I said, the Jews came from Poland, Germany, Britain, France, America, China, Iraq, Egypt. It is hard for me to say that there are hereditary characteristics which control a Jew's behavior; It is more part of his upbringing, his thinking process, from the fact that from childhood he was accustomed to being barbaric in order to achieve the goals set by the collective he belongs to: Homeland, statehood, political party, army, Mossad. He is part of a collective. This collective has goals, plans, strategies.
From childhood the Jew is trained to be an obedient tool in the hands of the decision makers in this collective. Meaning, in my opinion, this is not hereditary as much as social upbringing.
