Video: Abbas's Son Criticizes Obama, Compares Israel to Nazis

Yasser Abbas, son of Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, was interviewed last week while donating blood "for the martyrs" of Gaza.

During the interview, Abbas criticized U.S. President Barack Obama and Israel, saying that "even the Nazis would have been ashamed" to act like the Israeli army.

Part of the interview was broadcast on the official Palestinian Authority TV and the entire interview was later posted on the internet. It was translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
