In an interview with Russia Today TV on December 7, 2013, Farouq Qaddoumi, former PLO political bureau head, said: "I don't think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany" in World War II.


Following are excerpts from the interview:


Interviewer: Were you sympathetic with Nazi Germany in WWII?


Farouq Qaddoumi: I don't think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany.


Interviewer: You supported Hitler and his people.


Farouq Qaddoumi: Germany, yes. This was common among the Palestinians, especially since our enemy was Zionism, and we saw that Zionism was hostile to Germany, and vice versa.


Interviewer: There was a Nazi radio station in Arabic at the time, right?


Farouq Qaddoumi: I recall something like that.
