Speaking on the Palestinian Authority’s TV channel on Aug. 13, Fatah Central Committee member Jibril Rajoub addressed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Education Minister Naftali Bennett, saying: “You are criminals! You are neo-Nazis!”

Rajoub said that the Palestinian people is “at the most dangerous phase in [its] history, since the Nakba of 1948,” and that “the [Israeli] right, supported by the U.S. administration, wants to erase Palestine.”

Jibril Rajoub: “We are at the most dangerous phase in the history of the Palestinian people, since the nakba [‘catastrophe’] of 1948: The [Fatah-Hamas] rift, the difficult circumstances of our people under occupation, because of the siege and the oppression, the regional collapse and the bias of the U.S. administration in favor of a fascist [Israeli] government, which constitutes the neo-Nazis of this century, with all the measures and legislations—in the courts, in their Knesset and so on. We Palestinians must realize the scope of the dangers threatening our cause. The [Israeli] right, supported by the U.S. administration, wants to erase Palestine.
