Fatah official Rajoub: “There is an Israeli Auschwitz to massacre Palestinians”
Al-Hadath TV interviewer: "You've announced that you won't participate [in the Warsaw Conference], and described it as a knife in the back..."
Senior Fatah official Jibril Rajoub: "[If] there will be cocktail parties and toasts with [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu and the Arabs we will indeed view it as a mistake and a knife [in the back]... They are welcoming Netanyahu in Warsaw in order to remind us of the Holocaust and Auschwitz. In every city in Palestine, from Rafah to Jenin, there is an Israeli Auschwitz to massacre Palestinians."
Posted text on Rajoub's Facebook page: “[Fatah Central Committee Secretary] Jibril Rajoub in an interview with [Al-Arabiya affiliated Saudi TV] channel Al-Hadath on the position of Saudi Arabia, which opposes normalization with the occupation, and on the Palestinian position, which opposes participation in the Warsaw Conference.”
Jibril Rajoub also holds the following positions: Head of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, Chairman of the Palestine Olympic Committee, Chairman of the Palestinian Scout Association.
