“We continue with the irresponsible and inflammatory statements made by the hateful and racist terrorist minister, which arose from hatred, terrorism and the demand for racial supremacy of the Jews at the expense of the rest of the nations of the world, especially Palestine. people,” said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PA.

“We call on the International Criminal Court to move immediately to issue an arrest warrant against this racist terrorist.”

The ministry criticized France for allowing Smotrich to enter the country and be able to make “fascist” statements.

We will ask the French authorities to ensure that any activity that takes place on French territory does not violate international law and does not require the establishment of Greater Israel at the expense of international laws and conventions.

The PA also asked the EU to take a united stand to prevent Smotrich from entering any EU member state.

Egypt, Jordan, and Palestine, as well as Palestinian factions, all condemned Smotrich’s remarks.
