Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab 'Aql, a former Egyptian ambassador to Palestine and Yemen, was interviewed on November 14, 2019 on Blue Line, an antisemitic show that airs on Channel 2 (Egypt). Ambassador 'Aql said that Israel’s three goals are expanding geographically from the Nile River to the Euphrates River, dominating and exploiting the people of the world, and finishing off Islam and Muslims because of the challenge they pose to the achievement of the other goals. He also said that Zionist propaganda is Israeli ideological terrorism, that infiltrating political circles and paying off politicians is Israeli political terrorism, and that controlling financial institutions and the world economy is Israeli economic terrorism.
Following are excerpts:
Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab ‘Aql: Israel has three goals. [The first goal] is to establish the State of Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates, in keeping with what they claim is written in the Old Testament. Their second goal is to dominate the peoples of the world and exploit them, based on their conviction that they are God’s Chosen People. Their third goal is to finish off Islam and the Muslims, because they know that if Muslims adhere to their religion and implement it, they will constitute an obstacle to the realization of their goals.
There are three kinds of Israeli violence and terrorism. Let’s get to the root of the phenomenon of terrorism. Three is ideological terrorism, political terrorism, and economic terrorism. Ideological terrorism is embodied in Zionist propaganda. Political terrorism is embodied in infiltrating political circles, buying off people, and luring the largest possible number of politicians to their side. Economic [terrorism] is through banks, controlling financial institutions, and controlling the global economy. This is what they are doing.
