PA leader: Slaughter Jews in "settlements"
PA and Fatah official Jibril Rajoub:
"Our relations with the Israelis
are relations between enemies...
Am I stopping you from slaughtering
a settlement? No one is stopping anyone."
by Itamar Marcus
Jibril Rajoub, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee announced that Fatah has made a “political decision” to support the slaughter of Jews who live in settlements:
“OK, brother, here is the occupation, am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement? No one is stopping anyone... Our political decision is resistance in the occupied territories in order to bring an end to the occupation [using] all forms of resistance.”
The Fatah movement, headed by Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, is seen by many in the West as a peaceful alternative to Hamas and a potential partner for a future peace agreement. However, Palestinian Media Watch’s book Deception documents that the messages Fatah and the PA presents to the world in English are contradicted by the messages they express in Arabic to their people.
PMW reported that through his PA media, Mahmoud Abbas was seen to be encouraging Palestinians of the West Bank to initiate violence against Israel. Over 600 Palestinians have been arrested since July for violent rioting that included the throwing of Molotov cocktails, firecrackers and rocks. Earlier this month, a Palestinian tractor driver murdered an Israeli pedestrian and flipped a bus onto its side in an attack in Jerusalem. The PA leadership’s response to the violence in Jerusalem and the West Bank was supportive:
“The leadership expressed pride 'in the comprehensive popular uprising of our great nation, throughout the homeland and in its heart, Jerusalem... against the criminal aggression (i.e., the Gaza war).'"

The following is a longer text of Jibril Rajoub giving Palestinians carte blanche to “slaughter” Jews in settlements:
Head of the PA Sports Authority and Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub:
“I’m telling everyone: Fatah has decided that our relations with the Israelis are relations between enemies. There is no kind of coordination between the Israelis and us. Everyone can be certain that any form of mutual coordination ended a day after they declared war on the National Unity Government... OK, brother, here is the occupation, am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement? No one is stopping anyone. Don’t lie and tell me: ‘the [PA] Security Forces and Mahmoud Abbas,’ and so on [stop you]. Drop it, OK? No one is stopping anyone. Our political decision is resistance in the occupied territories in order to bring an end to the occupation [using] all forms of resistance.”
