Former Egyptian ambassador to Palestine and Yemen Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab ‘Aql said in a November 11, 2019 interview on Palestine TV that global Zionism works methodically to achieve its political, ideological, and economic goals of influencing politicians, controlling the world media, and controlling money and banking. He added that the Jews already control the media, that Israel assassinated Yasser Arafat, and that Israel will continue to be powerful until Allah’s promise is fulfilled. For similar statements from Al-Wahhab, see MEMRI TV Clip No. 7614.

Following are excerpts:


Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab ‘Aql: Israel works methodically. [Yasser] Arafat crossed all the lines, both with regard to the Palestinian cause and to Israel. He put himself in harm’s way, and it got to the point where Israel had to end his life by any means possible. Israel carried this out in a certain methodical fashion, and then his death was announced, and it was claimed that he had been poisoned.

Host: Mr. Ambassador, this is not a claim. There are witnesses…

Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab ‘Aql: There are also studies, allow me to finish… Besides the witnesses, there are also facts, but as you know, Israel excels in the media game, and the Jews control the media in the world. I do not acknowledge the international community, because it supports the strong who can promote themselves. The international community supports whoever controls the economy. As you know, global Zionism has three goals: A political goal, and ideological goal, and an economic goal. Politically, their goal is to control world politics and win over politicians. Regarding media, their goal is to control the world media. They already do. Their economic goal is to control the money, the banks, and so on.




Can you imagine Israel criticizing itself or letting anyone else criticize it? They are currently in a powerful phase and [this will continue] until Allah’s promise is fulfilled. The lie that is Israel will collapse, and our Lord will fulfill…

Host: Allah willing. It even says in the Quran: “They see it distant, but We see it near.”

Ashraf Abd Al-Wahhab ‘Aql: That is exactly what it says.
