Palestinian Authority envoy to the United Nations Human Rights Council, Ibrahim Khreisheh, said that all Jews living in Israel “should all return to their country of origin,” according to The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
In an interview with Palestinian Authority TV earlier this month, Khreisheh posited that Jews are not indigenous to the land of Israel, and their presence today is a product of years-long colonization.
Khreisheh begins by stating: “Our problem is that the Jews came to Palestine from outside the region, colonized it, and established their own state.”
He then adds that there is a chronicled history of Palestinian subjugation by Jews, citing the book of Exodus, the subsequent takeover of the “Promised Land,” and Israel’s modern efforts to “colonize” the West Bank.
“This ‘Promised Land’ within Israel is not large enough for them, and they have begun to take over our lands in the West Bank, with their settlements.”
