Lebanon Condemned Israeli FM’s Racist Remarks On Palestinians

BEIRUT, Mar 22 (NNN-NNA) – Lebanon, yesterday, condemned the latest racist remarks made by Israel’s far-right finance minister, who denied the existence of Palestinian people.

The Lebanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement, called on the international community to take deterrent measures, and reject the deliberately provocative statement, aimed at abolishing a peaceful solution, and exacerbating the deteriorating situation in the occupied Palestinian lands.

During an event, held in the French capital, Paris on Sunday, Israeli Finance Minister, Bezalel Smotrich, who also heads the Religious Zionist Party, said, “there’s no such thing as Palestinians because there’s no such thing as a Palestinian people.”

He made the remarks on a podium, that featured a map of “Greater Israel,” that included the territory of modern-day Jordan and the occupied Palestinian territories, in accordance with hardline aspirations by some early Zionist groups.– NNN-NNA

Jordan on Monday summoned the Israeli ambassador in Amman to protest Smotrich’s “provocative acts.”
