Lebanese Lawyer Omar Zein: We Should Fight Israel's Annexation Plans Even Though They Could Bring The End For Israel

Palestinian lawyer Amer Zein, who used to serve as the Secretary-General of the Arab Lawyers' Union, said in a June 2, 2020 interview on Palestine TV that even though Israel would collapse if it annexed Palestinian territories, because the Palestinians would become a majority, this is the wrong approach, and Palestinians must fight the annexation. He added that armed struggle must be the duty of the Palestinian people, particularly at this time.

Amer Zein: "Some people say that if Israel annexes [Palestinian lands], it will collapse and come to an end because we Arabs will become a majority. It is true that this is a possibility, but still, we must fight against the principle [of annexation]. I don't want to give Israel the permission to annex [lands], while saying: 'Your days are numbered because we will become the majority.' This is the wrong approach.

[...]

"Armed struggle should be one of the national duties of the Palestinian people, particularly during this time."
