Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Zawawi: Israelis Must Return to Their Countries of Origin

Following are excerpts from an interview with Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Al-Zawawi, which aired on Kawthar TV on September 16, 2014:

Salah Al-Zawawi: [Khamenei] is a big-hearted and broad-minded man of innovative wisdom. He is the successor of the great man, Imam Khomeini, who wished to visit Jerusalem and pray at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. I hoped that his wish could have been fulfilled, and that he could have prayed at the liberated Al-Aqsa Mosque.

I wished we would see the black banners of Khorasan on the move towards Jerusalem, as foretold by our Prophet Muhammad, and that we would live to celebrate the victory just as we suffered tragedies throughout our long history. Then we would witness our great people's return to their homeland, the land of their forefathers, and we would see the demise and the shattering of this alien entity. Nothing bonds them together, no chemistry. Only physics are at work in occupied Palestine. All those people who have gathered to occupy our land must return to their countries of origin, leaving behind only the Palestinian Jews, with whom we had lived in love, respect, and fraternity.


I would like to reiterate my gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for the training, financing, and weapons it has provided us, as well as for its political and diplomatic positions regarding Palestine. Iran has helped us to attain our great victory.


I am not saying that Palestine will be liberated tomorrow, but we have made real strides on the path to liberation. A missile with a 200 kilogram warhead will carry a warhead of 100 tons in the future, because weapons change as men change. We just need to cross the scientific threshold to get to our goal.
