Senior Fatah Official Jibril Rajoub: There Is an "Israeli Auschwitz" In Every Palestinian City; We Were Not Invited to the Warsaw Summit

Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub said in a February 9, 2019 interview on Al-Arabiya Network (Saudi Arabia) that the way to achieve regional peace and stability is to end the suffering of the Palestinians and confront the Israeli occupation. He said that Netanyahu was invited to the Middle East summit in Warsaw – while the Palestinians weren't invited until later – in order to "remind us of the Holocaust and Auschwitz." He asserted that there is an "Israeli Auschwitz" in every Palestinian city.

 

Jibril Rajoub: The way to achieve regional stability and global peace is to end the suffering of the Palestinian people and to confront this occupation that rejects the international law and rejects all the Arab and Islamic efforts to end the conflict by recognizing Israel on the condition that a Palestinian state is established. What does it mean that Netanyahu will be welcomed at the Warsaw [Summit]? Their goal is to remind us of the Holocaust and Auschwitz. In every city in Palestine, from Rafah to Jenin, there is an Israeli Auschwitz for the massacre of Palestinians… What else could it possibly mean? On top of that, nobody invited us or asked us to come. Only when they failed to build international support, did they invite us by writing "Dear Colleagues" on an invitation they sent through an ambassador.
