Fatah official holds plaque shaped as map of “Palestine” replacing Israel at international taekwondo tournament

Headline: “The Second Palestine International Taekwondo G1 Championship has concluded”
“The Second Palestine International [Taekwondo] G1 Championship, which took place over the course of three days at the IBSA hall (i.e., a hall established by India, Brazil, and South Africa through the UN Development Program) in Ramallah , has reached its conclusion. Present at the last day of the championship’s activities were Chairman of the [Palestine] Olympic Committee [and Fatah Central Committee Secretary] Jibril Rajoub and Deputy Chairman of the W orld Taekwondo Federation Ahmed Fouly… Fouly presented Jibril Rajoub with an honorary plaque from the World [Taekwondo] Federation.”

The article includes an image from the event showing Chairman of the Palestine Olympic Committee and Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub in the middle and Deputy Chairman of the World Taekwondo Federation Ahmed Fouly on the right. Rajoub and Fouly are holding honorary plaques in the shape of the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas. I t would appear the plaques in the photo are not the one mentioned in the article that Fouly gave to Rajoub, but plaques from Rajoub to the guests, showing “Palestine.”

Jibril Rajoub also holds the following positions: Head of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, and Chairman of the Palestinian Scout Association (PSA).
