“Denial of Jewish Existence” PLO Ambassador to Chile, Mr. Imad Nabil Jada’a
The following, in English translation, is the text of the accompanying video of the speech by Ambassador Nabil Jada’a to the Conference for Peace in Palestine and Israel on May 15, 2015 in Santiago, Chile.
“About the hatred we have against the Jewish people. As Palestinians, first, we don’t have hatred. Second we don’t recognize the existence of the Jewish people-there is no Jewish people. This is not my personal analysis. Here we can refer to the Jewish Israeli professor from the University of Tel Aviv, Dr. Shlomo Sand, in his book “The Invention of the Jewish People.” A Jew with Israeli passport announces that, the so-called Jewish nation is a made up invention. Because a religion cannot be a people.”
