Muslim-Brotherhood affiliated Palestinian author and academic Azzam Al-Tamimi, the founder of the London-based Al-Hiwar TV channel, said in an interview on Islam21c’s Unscripted podcast that the concept of a territorial nation-state is one of the main causes of the decline of the Muslim nation and that the individual Arab states have to cease existing in their current form. He said that the Arab Spring revolutions will eventually succeed in uniting the Arab people and liberating Palestine. Al-Tamimi also said that the most antisemitic people in the world are supporters of Zionism, who he said support Israel in order to get rid of the Jews, and Christian Zionists, who he said believe that the Messiah will come and kill the Jews or force them to convert to Christianity when all the Jews are gathered in the Promised Land. Adding that the Palestinians cannot overthrow Israel on their own and that Israel must be dismantled by a large regional trend, he said that there can be no peace with people who believe they have a divine right to steal Palestinian land and homes. Al-Tamimi added that “Palestinians do not use bullets” and that they are non-violent. He continued to say that “it’s just that some of them believe that the majority of Zionist Jews will never treat them as equal citizens, so they say it’s futile. Actually, time has proven them to be right.” The interview was uploaded to the YouTube channel of Islam21c, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood media organization, on October 4, 2019. Azzam Al-Tamimi has publicly expressed support for Hamas.
