Fatah pro-terror official meets with Israeli peace organizations to condemn Israel together

Headline: “Representatives of the Israeli peace organizations: The Palestinian leadership is a true partner for peace”


“A delegation of representatives and activists of the Israeli peace movements emphasized its adherence to the option of peace and the implementation of the two-state solution as the only way to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, and this was during a dialogue meeting held yesterday, Wednesday [Oct. 13, 2021], at the [PA] presidential headquarters in Ramallah that was organized by the [PA] Committee for Interaction with Israeli Society.

The delegation’s spokesman Chairman of the Israeli Peace Forces Forum Eli Safran said in his speech before those present, which included a number of figures from the Palestinian [PA] leadership and 50 Israeli figures: ‘The discourse in Israel still rests on using force against the Palestinians and how to implement more arbitrary measures. Therefore, we will continue to work to convince the decision-makers in Israel that the language of force and the arbitrary measures are not the way to end the conflict, and we will continue our legal and media work on this level.’

During his review of the activities and efforts that the forces of peace in Israel are investing to renew the peace process, Safran emphasized that ‘the Palestinian leadership is a true partner for peace and we have many meetings through which we convey the true Palestinian position to thousands of people inside and outside of Israel, and also our true position that rejects settlement and the settlers’ acts and violations in the Palestinian territories.’

He added: ‘Preventing a child from having a cup of water is a crime, and if it is a Palestinian child this is a despicable crime, and I do not want Israel to continue doing such despicable things.’ …

Fatah Movement Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub called on all the Israelis to think about the future and the heritage that the Israelis intend to leave for the coming generations – peace for everyone or an apartheid regime (sic., see note below).

Rajoub said that ‘the Palestinians are not interested in a reduction of the conflict that will put them in a better or more spacious prison, but rather want to end the conflict and achieve freedom, dignity, and independence in their state in the June 1967 borders whose capital is East Jerusalem.’”


Jibril Rajoub also serves as Head of the PLO Supreme Council for Youth and Sports, Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, Chairman of the Palestine Olympic Committee, and Chairman of the Palestinian Scout Association (PSA).


Red Cross rebuts Palestinian claims that Israel commits “executions” and is an “apartheid state” – Jacques De Maio, head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) delegation to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, rejected claims that Israel carries out “extrajudicial killings” or is an "apartheid state" in an interview with the Israeli news site Ynet on April 26, 2017. De Maio said: “We came to the unequivocal conclusion that there are no shoot to kill orders of suspects by IDF (i.e., the Israeli army), as some political elements tried to convince us. Rules of engagement have not changed, and became even stricter.” Regarding claims of apartheid, De Maio said: “No, there is no apartheid here, no regime of superiority of race, of denial of basic human rights to a group of people because of their alleged racial inferiority.”

The statements by the head of the ICRC delegation to Israel and the PA disprove the PA's repeated claim that Israel is committing "summary executions of Palestinians in cold blood" - a claim that PMW has documented numerous times:
