Top PA Official: Youth Soccer Match With Israel 'Crime Against Humanity'
Jibril Rajoub, the deputy secretary of the Fatah Central Committee went ballistic over a recent youth soccer match between Palestinian and Israeli children hosted by the Peres Center for Peace as a way to build bridges between Israeli and Palestinian children.
Rajoub, a member of the Fatah Old Guard wrote in a September 6 Facebook post, “Any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity.”
He said the match represented “an Israeli attempt to cover up their crimes against [Palestinian] athletes,” according to a Palestinian Media Watch report released Monday.
Perhaps he's forgotten about his part planning the massacre of Israeli athletes in Munich in 1972, or all the other very real 'crimes against humanity' he, Abbas and the others in Fatah have happily participated in.
The kids themselves appear to not be affected by the hatred their adult leaders are pushing...at least not yet. Over 600 children from Israel and the Palestinian territories were scheduled to take part this year in the Twinned Peace Soccer Schools events.
“I love it when we play together like this. I hope that one day there will be peace between Arabs and Jews and that there will be no more wars and death,” a Palestinian boy told AFP after the first event.
Not if Jibril Rajoub and the PA have anything to say about it. A number of PA officials echoed Rajoub's sentiments
"The Palestinian organizers of this match betrayed the blood of the children of Gaza and of the martyrs, which has yet to dry a week after the end of the barbaric Israeli aggression,” said Palestinian Olympic Committee member Abd al-Salam Haniyeh in an article published last Thursday by Palestinian news agency Sama
Haniyeh went on to demand that Rajoub punish the Palestinian organizers associated with the match, who hail from Yatta. “Immediately interrogate the organizers of the match, settle the account with them and prosecute them on charges of serious treason against the blood of the martyrs [who died in the Gaza conflict] and violating the decisions made by the Palestinian sports community’s leadership,” Haniyeh urged.
Last year, in an interview with Palestinian TV, Rajoub stated his opposition to participating in sporting events with Israelis and threatened to remove anyone accused of doing so from the Palestinian Football Association.
Jibril Rajoub,you might remember is the PA leader who said that if the Palestinian Authority had a nuclear weapon, they would use it on Israel the next day.
It's pretty easy to predict what's going to happen here, because I know how these things usually end up. Remember that Arafat, Abbas, Rajoub, and the rest of the Fatah mafia were trained by their Soviet masters on how to enforce party discipline.
The organizers, coaches and any other Palestinian adults involved in this will receive a visit from Fatah thugs in the 'security forces' and will receive a lesson, a physical one if necessary on the error of their ways. The program will be cancelled, because all of a sudden no Palestinian children or adults will be participating in it. If the regime decides it's necessary, the kids who were involved, especially if they were exposed to the hated Jews enough to see them as human beings will be subjected to intense reprogramming.
There will be no real peace between Israel and the Arabs whom identify themselves as Palestinians as long as Hamas, Fatah, Islamic Jihad and the other allied factions are around.You could sign any papers you want and give in to all their demands, and that wouldn't change.
