She went on with her bluntly racist statement: “either you let the Kurds have their own state or we kick you out from here. Enough is enough. You have destroyed our land. We don’t want Arabs anymore in North Africa and Egypt.Things got even uglier when she presented Arabs with two options: either you let Kurds create their state or we, the Amazigh people of North Africa, we’re ready to join hands with Satan and Israel to kick you out of our land”.Threats reached a clear incitation to violence when she said “we’ll create chaos and slaughter Arabs, one after one, especially those in the Gulf”.Many Amazigh activists sympathize with Kurds as they see that both ethnicities have been long marginalized by pan-Arab regimes.Mazane had previously been at the heart of other controversies.
