"Moderate" PA Adheres to Piece by Piece Process

Once again, an official with the "moderate" Palestinian Authority has made clear that Palestinian leaders still see the so-called peace process as a means to implement Yasser Arafat's 1974 "Phased Plan" for destroying Israel, rather than as a path to achieving genuine peace.

According to a translation by MEMRI, the Palestinian Authority's Ambassador to Lebanon, Abbas Zaki, told Lebanon's NBN TV during an interview that aired on April 9, 2008:

The P.L.O. is the sole legitimate representative [of the Palestinian people], and it has not changed its platform even one iota. In light of the weakness of the Arab nation and the lack of values, and in light of the American control over the world, the P.L.O. proceeds through phases, without changing its strategy. Let me tell you, when the ideology of Israel collapses, and we take, at least, Jerusalem, the Israeli ideology will collapse in its entirety, and we will begin to progress with our own ideology, Allah willing, and drive them out of all of Palestine.

The story has been reported in the Jerusalem Post .

If you don't see this quotation reported in your local paper, please contact the editorial staff and/or foreign desk of the newspaper to educate them about the issue and urge them to cover the story.
