DARRELL SCOTT: I don’t see Israel as persecuting Palestinians. If it was up the Palestinians, if it was up to Islam, every single Jew in Israel would be slaughtered. If it was up to Israel there would be peaceful coexistence. So let’s not get it twisted here. The goal of Judaism is not to wipe out Islam, the goal of Islam is to wipe out Israel and you can’t say that Israel is persecuting Palestinians simply because they’re protecting themselves.

ANDERSON COOPER (HOST): Reverend Scott, you said that all Palestinians want to wipe out all Israellis, do you stand by that?

SCOTT: When I say all, I don’t mean all, I mean all in a limited sense.
