Palestinian Authority Official Says Hitler Could Have Learned From Israelis About Concentration Camps
by Joshua Levitt
Another Palestinian Authority leader was caught inciting hatred against Israel and demonizing Israelis on PA state television.
Media watch-dog Palestinian Media Watch reported on Friday how Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub compared the Jewish state to Hitler’s Germany.
When asked, “Do you expect things to get worse?” after the end of the peace talks with Israel, Rajoub, who is also Chairman of the PA Olympic Committee, said last week, “Sir, we have nothing to lose. What’s worse? Do you think we are living in Sweden and have something to lose?”
“We are living under a racist and fascist occupation,” Rajoub said. “I’m telling you, if Hitler had come [here], he would have learned from them how to oppress humans and learned from them about concentration camps, extermination camps.”
Rajoub’s televised incitement followed a similar statement by another senior Palestinian Authority official, Abbas Zaki, in March, who said that “the Israelis… are an advanced instrument of evil… Allah will gather them so that we can kill them.”
