Abbas Zaki of the Fatah's Central Committee called on Arab leaders who normalized relations with Israel to step down and allow their people to support Jerusalem in a Mayadeen TV (Lebanon) show that aired on April 14, 2022. He said that all the resistance fighters are welcome in Palestine. Zaki further said that Palestinians follow the path of Yasser Arafat, he asked Allah to grant them martyrdom, and quoted Arafat: "A million of martyrs are marching to Jerusalem." He said that all the Palestinians who bear arms should unit and that Israel is a "paper tiger."

Abbas Zaki: "I am very optimistic that if Israel commits any stupid act, it will pay a steep price this time. In addition, I say for myself and on behalf of all my colleagues, that we follow the path of Abu Ammar [Yasser Arafat]. We ask Allah to great us martyrdom. Millions of martyrs are marching to Jerusalem. We face threats and assassinations, but by Allah, we will not be afraid. We will prove to the world that our homeland has its guards, and has [people with] pure conscience around the world. Therefore, I demand from all our brothers... The Arabs who are now normalizing their relations with Israel should be ashamed of themselves and step down. They should give their people a chance to support Jerusalem.

"I say to all the resistance fighters: Welcome to Palestine. We can no longer tell people to wait while they are being slaughtered. We are calling upon people to fulfill their role. The Islamic countries should do this for the sake of the place where the Prophet Muhammad ascended to Heaven, and the Christians should do it for the sake of their belief in Jesus, who was Palestinian. All the Palestinians who carry weapons should unite, because there is strength in unity. Currently, Israel is a paper tiger. It is 60-60 [draw in the Israeli Knesset]. The government is on the verge of collapse."
