Video - Palestinian Leader Farouk Qaddumi: We Supported the Nazis in WWII.
In an interview with Russia Today TV on December 7, 2013, Farouk Qaddumi, former head of the PLO Political Bureau, said: "I don't think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany" in World War II.
Following are excerpts from the interview:
Interviewer: Were you sympathetic with Nazi Germany in WWII?
Farouq Qaddumi: I don't think it would be wrong to say that we were enthusiastic supporters of Germany.
Interviewer: You supported Hitler and his people.
Farouq Qaddumi: Germany, yes. This was common among the Palestinians, especially since our enemy was Zionism, and we saw that Zionism was hostile to Germany, and vice versa.
Interviewer: There was a Nazi radio station in Arabic at the time, right?
Farouq Qaddumi: I recall something like that.HT: Memri
