PA Presidential Advisor Mahmoud Al-Habbash: Normalization With 'The Enemies Of The Prophet Muhammad' Is Treason

Mahmoud Al-Habbash, an advisor to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said in an August 15, 2020 interview on Palestine TV that Jerusalem and Palestine will be liberated from the occupation and will belong exclusively to the Palestinians. He said that normalization of relations with Israel is treason, that it is normalization with the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad, and that the Palestinians will continue to fight the occupation even if they are all slaughtered.

Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "We will welcome anybody who wants to come to the Al-Aqsa Mosque through Palestine, and we will carry him on our shoulders. But we will not welcome anybody who wants to come to Al-Aqsa through Israel. He will be met with the shoes of the people of Jerusalem, and they will also spit in his face, because he does not care about Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Has Israel become the address for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque? Has Trump become their spokesman with the Deal of the Century? It is a disgrace that Trump is the one speaking for them.


"Normalization is treason, full stop. It is treason. It is normalizing relations with those who murdered your father and brothers. It is normalizing relations with the enemies of the Prophet Muhammad, who want to [build] a temple at the destination of Muhammad's Night Journey. Is 'normalization' considered an honor for those who normalize relations [with Israel]? If this is what they want, may they be blessed with such shame. But as I said, we are protecting embers and standing firm. We will fight even with our fingernails – with the pupils in our eyes. We will continue to do this even if we are all killed and slaughtered. Palestine and Jerusalem will belong to us alone. This occupation will disappear, like all those before it. And on that day, we will be the only ones who will rejoice, and shame and disgrace will be the lot of those who accepted disgrace."
