Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub exploited his entry to Israel around two weeks ago in order to visit the family of terrorist murderer Karim Younes.
Karim Younes is an Israeli Arab who, together with his cousin Maher Younes, kidnapped and murdered Israeli soldier Avraham Bromberg in 1980. He was sentenced to life in prison. (His sentence was commuted to 40 years by Israeli President Shimon Peres in 2012.)
In a post on his Facebook page, Rajoub took pride in having visited the murderer's family in the village of 'Ara, and he posted pictures of himself with the family members.
Palestinian Media Watch checked and found that the Israeli Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories had not approved Rajoub's visit to the murderer's family.
In the 2015 terror wave, Rajoub explicitly incited for terror attacks and acts of murder, and he called the terrorist murderers "heroes... a crown on the head of every Palestinian."
This year the Fatah Movement appointed murderer Karim Younes to be a member of Fatah's central committee.
The following is a translation of the text of Rajoub's post, which appeared on his Facebook page together with the pictures:
"Jibril Rajoub during his visit to the family of prisoner fighter Karim Younes, the most veteran Palestinian prisoner and a Fatah Movement Central Committee member, in his village of 'Ara this evening."
