Jibril Rajoub
Jibril Rajoub is Deputy-Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee (since September 2009). He is also Head of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, and Chairman of the Palestinian Olympic Committee. He is a former member of the Fatah Revolutionary Council (until Aug. 2009), the former National Security Advisor to Yasser Arafat, rank of Brigadier-General, and the former Head of the West Bank Preventive Security Forces (1994-2002)

Jibril Rajoub was sentenced to life in prison in 1970 for throwing a grenade at an Israeli army truck. He was released in the Jibril Agreement - A deal between the Israeli government and the terrorist organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), led by Ahmed Jibril. On May 21, 1985, Israel released 1,150 Palestinian prisoners, including terrorist murderers, in exchange for three Israeli soldiers who had been taken hostage by the PFLP.

In 2015, the PA submitted a request to FIFA to suspend Israel, organized and promoted by Rajoub. PMW published a report, "PA sports: Prohibiting peace and glorifying terror," showing the irony of Rajoub's request, since the PA uses sports to further entrench the conflict with Israel and to send the message that murdering Israeli civilians is honorable and heroic.

Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub:
“Yesterday in Hebron, they escorted 17 Martyrs to burial. This is of course a source of pride for all of us. I say that whoever carried out individual acts of heroism, we in the Fatah movement bless and encourage them. We consider them heroes and a crown on the head of every Palestinian. At this point, when there is weakening and frustration, there is a group of people, beginning with our brother Muhannad Halabi (i.e., murdered 2) and ending with the last Martyr... There is a competition between individuals. This is one of the issues we need to address – are we for or against it? I say that we in the [Fatah] Central Committee have discussed this matter, and we are in favor."

PA official on Palestinian terror attacks: They are “acts of bravery, I am proud of them”

Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub:
"Clearly these are individual operations (i.e., terror attacks), however, they comprise bravery and composure. They contain a range of values that obligate the political elite and political and national Palestinian powers to see the will of that hero who wrote a blog. It can be a document they could teach in schools, on the meaning of Martyrdom-death -"
PA TV host: "Fadi Alloun (i.e., terrorist who stabbed one)."
Rajoub: "- and the meaning of patriotism... This is the Palestinian behavior in the field that comprises a high willingness to sacrifice. You see [an Israeli] soldier with a rifle fleeing [a Palestinian] with a knife or even one with nothing, or [an Israeli] scared in front of a Palestinian, only because he is Palestinian... These are individual acts of bravery, and I am proud of them. I congratulate everyone who carried them out. I say to you, we are proud of you... Whoever confronts, fights, dies as a Martyr, is arrested or injured – his identity is known. What I mean is that the fighter, the prisoner, or the Martyr, they are assets to the entire Palestinian people... The international community does not agree to a bus exploding in Tel Aviv. But the international community does not ask what happens to a settler or soldier in the occupied territories at the wrong time and in the wrong place. No one asks about him! Therefore, we want to fight in such a way that the world and the international community will remain by our side."

     “Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub accused Benjamin Netanyahu’s extremist right-wing Israeli government of repeating the acts of the Third Reich – the name the Nazi party gave to Germany under Hitler’s regime… Rajoub described the Israeli Prime Minister as a ‘Fuhrer’ leading a group of corrupt extremists, the likes of [Foreign Minister Avigdor] Liberman and [Minister of the Economy] Naftali Bennett, who have outdone Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, in their lies and racist Nazi acts…
Rajoub condemned the racist statements made by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman against President Abbas for sending a telegram of condolence to the family of Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, and called on him [Liberman] to go back to his original homeland. Rajoub added: ‘If the Israelis had any self-respect, they wouldn’t have chosen a ‘thug and nightclub security guard’ to serve as their foreign minister.’”

Deputy Secretary of Fatah: Football match between Israeli and Palestinian children is "a crime against humanity"

Headline: "Rajoub: 'Normalization in sports with the Zionist occupation is a crime'"
     "[Deputy Secretary of Fatah's Central Committee,] Chairman of the Olympic Committee, and Chairman of the [Palestinian] Football Association Jibril Rajoub said any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity. He said that the position of the sports leadership on the issue is perfectly clear.
Rajoub's statements were made in response to a sports activity held a few days ago (i.e., a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children sponsored by the Israeli Peres Center for Peace)...
Rajoub emphasized the following points:
1. The game was an Israeli attempt to cover up their crimes against [Palestinian] athletes. It is a disgrace to use sports for this purpose.

2. If there are Israeli parties who believe sport is a means of spreading values and peace, they should come out against the occupation's crimes against Palestinian athletes, whether the restriction of their movement, the destruction of their [sports] facilities or the physical elimination of dozens of them...

3. For a while now the Palestinian sports leadership and community - the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, the Palestinian Olympic Committee and the Palestinian Football Association - have opposed such activities.

4. I demand that all individuals and institutions distance themselves from such activities, especially because their recurrence would arouse disgust and aversion towards all members of the [Palestinian] sports community."

     “In an exclusive statement to the Wattan News Agency Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub said… ‘I do not support the kidnapping of civilians, whether Palestinians or Israelis, but it seems that Israel understands only the language of kidnappings in order to allow us to free our prisoners, since it has insisted on not freeing them.’ He added: ‘Kidnapping soldiers has become the only solution Israel understands for freeing our prisoners, whose numbers are increasing every day.’”

We are a project for the ‎establishment of a state, not a project that ‎won’t lead anywhere, or lead to anarchy. ‎Sir, [armed] resistance is still [in] the ‎genetic code of all Fatah members. But ‎the resistance our people will be able to ‎endure is a resistance that encircles the ‎occupation..."
El-Hadath interviewer: “That is, Fatah is ‎not against the [armed] resistance; it ‎‎[resistance] is one of its principles, but the ‎choice at this time is the negotiation ‎option.”‎...
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central ‎Committee Jibril Rajoub: “What we agreed upon on May 4 is the ‎political plan for the Palestinian people’s ‎struggle. The Palestinian state is our first ‎priority; popular resistance has the ‎consent of the people... I hope that ‎our brothers in Hamas will understand ‎this, and that they will re-examine [things] ‎to guarantee the unity of our political ‎conduct and our struggle. Resistance as ‎an idea and as [a mode of] behavior is still ‎part of the national and organizational ‎principles of all Fatah members.”‎

Fatah official claims "one hundred percent" of leaflets supporting first Intifada "were signed by Arafat" 
Source: YouTube, Mar. 8, 2014
Lecture by Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub at a conference on popular resistance and the Israeli- Palestinian negotiations at Al-Quds University.
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub: “One hundred percent of the leaflets published by the Unified National Leadership [of the first Intifada] were signed by Arafat. I was the first Palestinian to be expelled after the first Intifada (i.e., the first Palestinian wave of violence against Israel, 1988-1993). From the start of the Intifada and until I came back, I was the General Commander’s (i.e., Arafat’s) Assistant on Occupied Land Affairs, and I tell you that 90 percent of the leaflets were written by Sari Nusseibeh. You don’t know this – I’m telling you.”

Note: Jibril Rajoub was sentenced to life in prison in 1970 for throwing a grenade at an Israeli army truck. He was released in the Jibril Agreement - A deal between the Israeli government and the terrorist organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), led by Ahmed Jibril. On May 21, 1985, Israel released 1,150 Palestinian prisoners, including terrorist murderers, in exchange for three Israeli soldiers who had been taken hostage by the PFLP.

Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub: “Had Fatah not taken decision-making and the Palestinian national will into its own hands using bullets, it would not have been possible for our cause to change from a refugee cause into a statehood cause. I’m not saying that on April 30 [2014] (i.e., when the negotiations with Israel are scheduled to end), we should pick up rifles and take to the streets, but neither do I rule this out – provided that the struggle be a means, and not an end. Therefore, the most important thing for us to do is… start an internal national dialogue to define our national agenda and our national strategy. In addition to the fact that the Palestinian cause, or Palestine as a state, is now on the international agenda, we have achieved something great and important over [the past] 50 years: We have attained moral supremacy over this criminal, fascist, Nazi occupation…
International legitimacy allows us to resist with all the means, including armed struggle – provided that it take place on the occupied lands, against the symbols of the occupation and the occupation, in order to bring about the end of the occupation. But this has to be a practical, realistic choice capable of harming the occupation. At the same time, I’m telling you, there will be those among us who will go out and start heating [things] up right now. Therefore, we must mold the Palestinian national consciousness in order to define the red lines. It is forbidden for anyone to define the Palestinian national agenda.”

I, true, the interviewer [from the Al-Mayadeen TV station] asked me and I answered in the same manner and with those words and even now I say to the Israelis, if there won’t be a reexamination of your conduct on your part, a saying in Hebrew states: ‘kill or be killed,’ we won’t be killed, we’re not Jesus, true, we come from Jesus’ apostles but we, our future and our government and our identity are being trampled under the criminal terrorist settler dogs’ feet. I’m certain that if Hitler would come again he would learn from them the art of breaking the will of the people, humiliating the people, [making the] people suffer, destroying the people and massacres...
The world today has begun to be convinced that we are a victim and that they are the criminals and hangmen. Under the rays of the sun Israel has been revealed to be a foreign and threatening body that threatens the region’s independence, threatens the world’s peace and threatens the world’s values and interests.”
