A video monitored and translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) shows Palestinian Authority official Jibril Rajoub denouncing Jews as “Satans” and “Zionist sons of bitches” before an audience.
In another PMW video, he calls Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a “dog.”
Rajoub was to be a main speaker at the Meretz party's conference Sunday, but the government refused to give him a pass to enter Israel for the event.
Meretz head MK Zehava Galon said that the decision to prevent Rajoub from entering Israel is puzzling given that Rajoub visits Israel frequently. "This is an attempt to silence a person, which harms one of the most prominent proponents of peace on the other side, and it is hard to shake the feeling that the security establishment makes political decisions and not professional ones,” claimed Galon.
