Fatah Central Committee Member Azzam Al-Ahmad said in a September 15, 2020 interview on Al-Araby TV (Qatar/U.K.) that Fatah hopes the people of UAE and Bahrain will "restrain" their leaders and cause them to reconsider the peace agreements they have signed with Israel. He said that the Palestinians are defending Mecca, Baghdad, Cairo, Amman, Damascus, and Jerusalem from the Zionists' "territorial designs" of expanding from the Nile to the Euphrates. He also said that Fatah will continue to "serve as the spearhead" against the United States and the Zionist movement.
Azzam Al-Ahmad: "We hope that the people [of the UAE and Bahrain] will restrain [their leaders] and make them reconsider what they have signed. Do not destroy yourselves and the future of the entire Arab nation. We, the Palestinians, are defending all of you – we are defending Mecca, Baghdad, Cairo, Amman, and Damascus. This is our destiny as Palestinians. We are the murabitun in Jerusalem who defend it against the Zionist territorial designs from the Nile to the Euphrates. We will continue to serve as the spearhead in the confrontation against the American administration and the Zionist movement.
"We will continue to serve as the spearhead and will continue to persevere and fight. We have been fighting for over 100 years, in defense of the Arab nation and the Islamic and Christian holy places."
