'Israeli Holocaust of Arabs will fail'
"If the Germans could not succeed in eliminating the Jewish people in the Holocaust, then neither will the campaign that the Israelis are now perpetrating against millions of Palestinians and billions of Arabs and Muslims succeed," Sheikh Kamal Khatib, deputy head of the radical northern faction of the fundamentalist Islamic Movement Friday.
60 years have passed since the Nakba, during which time our nation has been exposed to all types of attack. Today, as we mark 60 years since the Nakba, they are threatening us with a holocaust in Gaza, in Lebanon, in Iran and in all of our lands," he said, speaking at a rally marking 60 years since the Nakba, or 'catastrophe' of the Palestinian people.
"In the beginning, in 1948, we were 450,000 Palestinians and today we are but 300,000 thorns in their sides, and rocks on their chests. We vow to be Palestinian Arabs - Muslims and Christians," he said.
"We are here to stay, like the oil of the Galilee, the grapes of the Galilee, and the Jaffa orange," he continued, directing his words towards Israel.
