In a recent TV interview, former PA security chief Jibril Rajoub, a Fatah Central Committee member said that that the "new Nazis" were perpetrating a holocaust in Gaza. "They pose a danger not just to us, but to the entire world," he said. The interview aired on the official Palestinian Authority TV on July 24, 2014.
Following are excerpts:
TV host Ibrahim Milhim: In this holocaust, the people of Gaza stand in line, awaiting their turn at the stake. Children are led... children are led with their fathers, mothers, and grandparents, in their pajamas, into the hellfire of the holocaust.
History chronicles in blood and tears the horrors of a crime against humanity, perpetrated by people who evoke today the spirit of Nazism, as they master the arts of genocide.
Jibril Rajoub: This is the true face of Zionism, the true face of that fascist government and of that society. The fascism of this society is unparalleled throughout history. This is a fascist society. A fascist society.
I believe, in light of what they are doing, that they are the new Nazis. Israel, [especially] the Israeli right wing, constitutes a replica of Hitler, Eichmann, and Goebbels.
The world has a complex about the story of the Holocaust. Brother, it was the Nazis, not us, who did the Holocaust to them. The Europeans, who did this to them, suffer from a complex, even though the [Israelis] are doing the same thing to us. We are paying the price for Europe's crimes against them in the previous century. We are paying for those crimes with our state, our land, and our honor. We were driven out of our country as a solution to the problem of the European Jews, who were massacred – they say that six million of them were killed – while the whole world stood idly by, because their behavior led them to those circumstances. Their behavior towards us today should lead them back to their natural place.
This is an aggressive, racist, and fascist entity, that must be gone from our land.
They pose a danger not just to us, but to the entire world – and first and foremost to the Arabs and Muslims. They pose a danger to anyone connected to the Middle East.
