The Palestinian envoy to the UN has drawn a parallel between the regime in Tel Aviv and Nazi Germany
The Palestinian envoy to the UN has drawn a parallel between the regime in Tel Aviv and Nazi Germany, criticizing Israel for branding all the Palestinians who oppose Israeli policies as “terrorists.”
Addressing reporters in New York on Wednesday, Riyad Mansour hit back at recent comments by Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon, who had called Palestinian protesters in the occupied lands “terrorists.”
During an April 18 UN Security Council meeting, Danon had accused Palestinians of teaching “hatred” in their schools and said they glorify what he called acts of terror against Israelis amid heightened tensions in the occupied West Bank.
Mansour hit back at Danon and said the Israeli official tries to portray as “terrorists” the Palestinian people “who have legitimate rights to resist occupation in legitimate ways.”
The Palestinian diplomat further likened the regime in Tel Aviv to Nazi Germany and said “all colonizers” throughout the history described “those who resisted them as terrorists.”
The comparison, however, drew an angry reaction from Danon, who said equating Tel Aviv with Nazi Germany was “despicable.”
