Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub: “Today, in this beloved land that is dear to our heart, in the kingdom of Bahrain in the Arabian Gulf, we mark this day, whose realization is still a dream for us, us the Palestinians, with the hope that next year we will celebrate with you in Jerusalem, which will be the capital of the independent Palestinian state despite the terrorist [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, and that feeble minded one called [US President Donald] Trump, who finds nothing to do other than deal with us in this way…

I think that what Saudi Arabian King [Salman bin Abdulaziz] said two days ago [Nov. 19, 2018] (i.e., that the Palestinian issue would remain a “top priority for the kingdom” until the Palestinians “get their rights”)… is a message to anyone that thinks that there is one Arab who can manipulate the Arab Initiative… This is a message to everyone – a message to Trump, a message to Netanyahu – that the independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital [will be established], and that this Jerusalem is Arab with an Islamic dimension and a Christian dimension, despite Netanyahu and Netanyahu’s father…

Come visit us, come visit us! The one that doesn’t want to see you is this fascist occupation. These neo-Nazis don’t want one Arab, Muslim or non-Muslim, to visit us and to see us and their crimes.”

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, and Chairman of the Palestinian Scout Association (PSA).

Palestinian declaration of independence - On Nov. 15, 1988, before the Palestine National Council (PNC), the Palestinian parliament in exile in Algeria, Chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) Yasser Arafat declared the establishment of an independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Although the borders were not specified in the declaration, it recognized the UN partition plan of 1947, which called for the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in the former British Mandate for Palestine.
