In a February 20 interview on Hizbullah’s Al-Manar TV, Palestinian Ambassador to Iran Salah Zawawi warned against what he called the “Western enterprise” to establish the Greater Israel and to turn the Arabs into “servants, if not slaves in our region.” “I pray to Allah that Iran will produce 1,000 nuclear bombs,” he said, adding that they would not be directed against Arab or Islamic countries, but “would be used to defend the Islamic Republic and its principles.”
Salah Zawawi: “Our war is not only with this Zionist enemy. We are fighting a 100-year-old Western enterprise, which is ongoing. This enterprise does not target a part of Palestine, or even Palestine in its entirety. Its goal is to establish the Greater Israel, which would control disintegrated Arab and Islamic countries, and indeed, this is happening today in our Islamic world. This way, our enemy along with its defenders and masters, would complete their plan to turn us into servants, if not slaves, in this region, and to plunder our resources.
“When they talk about the signing of the nuclear agreement and whatever, they are truly terrified. If Iran produces a nuclear bomb – and I pray to Allah that Iran will produce 1,000 nuclear bombs – it will not be directed against any Arab or Islamic country. It will be used to defend, at the very least, the Islamic republic and its principles.”
