In a recent TV interview, former top Fatah official Ghazi Al-Husseini, who heads the Jerusalem committee of the Palestinian National Council, said that the PA's security cooperation with Israel constitutes high treason. Al-Husseini is the son Abd Al-Qader Al-Husseini and the brother of Faysal Al-Husseini.
Following are excerpts from the interview, which aired on the Jordanian Roya TV channel on November 19:
Interviewer: Do you think that we are heading toward a religious war or a political war?
Ghazi Al-Husseini: I find this question peculiar.
Ghazi Al-Husseini: Because it has always been a religious war. This is nothing new.
Interviewer: But President Mahmoud Abbas...
Ghazi Al-Husseini: Excuse me...
Interviewer: But President Mahmoud Abbas, who represents the Palestinians vis- à-vis the international community, is the one who warned about a religious war.
Ghazi Al-Husseini: When General Allenby entered Damascus, he went to Saladin's tomb, gave it a kick, and said: "The Crusades are now over." He said: "We have returned, oh Saladin…" In 1990, President Bush Senior said that this was a Crusade war, and later he explained that this had been a slip of the tongue. When, a few days ago, Kissinger talked about a major war, and said that World War III would soon break out, and the Jews, or Israel, would kill as many Arabs as possible – is this not a religious war? When the Al-Aqsa Mosque is attacked and our mosques are destroyed, is this not a religious war?
In my opinion, the Palestinian Authority plays the wrong role. I call it just an "authority," not a "national authority." It reminds me of [General] Haddad in Lebanon. A national authority is national only when it serves the people, rather than arresting fighters and turning them in to the enemy.
This is not security cooperation. It is a security service provided to Israel. This is clear collaboration. It is nothing but collaboration with the Zionist enemy, which is in violation of all our laws. The Fatah Charter states that anyone collaborating with the enemy is a traitor, who must be punished accordingly.
Interviewer: But Fatah has chosen the path of peace...
Ghazi Al-Husseini: No, it hasn't. All those people have... Fatah remains the same, but some people, I am sad to say, have taken control of it. What the Palestinian Authority is doing today constitutes high treason. Doing this service to Israel constitutes treason.
This is a religious colonialist conflict. There is a clandestine force operating behind the scenes, and I tell you with all honesty that this is the global Freemasonry. What Kissinger said about the global government reflects the goals of Freemasonry: the establishment of a global government, after the elimination of the Muslims and the Christians. The seat of this government will be in Rome, and if we examine the documents of the Freemason movement, we will see that they discuss the building of the temple, and the establishment of a global government.
