Palestinian Islamic Scholar Dr. Omar Fora: Only Mizrahi Jews Would Have The Right To Live Amongst The Palestinians; Ashkenazis Should Go Back To Where They Came From

Palestinian Islamic scholar Dr. Omar Fora said in an August 19, 2020 show on Al-Quds Al-Youm TV (Islamic Jihad – Gaza) that Israel aspires to establish a "Greater Israel" that will stretch from the Nile River to the Euphrates River, and he said that it will eventually demand lands in Medina and other regions of the Arabian peninsula. He said that Mizrahi Jews are the only Jews who will have a right to live with the Palestinians under Palestinian authority, and that Ashkenazi Jews such as those from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, and Belarus should go back to where they came from.

Dr. Omar Fora: "Our brothers should know that Israel does not endanger the Palestinian people alone. By Allah! Israel refused to open an embassy east of the Nile. It established its embassy west of the Nile, because it considers the land stretching from the eastern bank of the Nile to the Euphrates to be the biblical Land of Israel. Therefore, the embassy was established outside the land that stretches from east of the Nile [to the Euphrates]. It established its embassy west of the Nile, because it considers the land west of the Nile to be outside of its territory. Israel is not about to achieve these Zionist or biblical ambitions now, but Israel wants to establish 'Greater Israel.' By Allah! The day will come when Israel will demand lands in Medina, the lands of [the Jewish tribes of] Qurayza, Nadhir, and Banu Qaynuqa, as well as the lands of Khaybar. As we study history and understand it, we know the true nature of the Zionist movement.


"The only Jews that have a right to live with us in Palestine, under our patronage and our authority, are those who have been living in Palestine. But the Ashkenazi Jews who came from overseas, from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Poland, and settled this land – they should go back to where they came from. But Mizrahi Jews would have the same rights and obligations that we have, they would live with us, just like they live in Morocco, under the authority of the Kingdom of Morocco, they would live with us in Palestine. We are not against Judaism as a religion. We are against Zionism as a racist, bloody, and occupying movement."
