A Palestinian leader has explained that killing Jews is good, but it has to be done in a way that the international community won’t notice – or care about – what’s going on.

“The international community does not agree to a bus exploding in Tel Aviv. But the international community does not ask what happens to a settler or soldier in the occupied territories at the wrong time and in the wrong place. No one asks about him! Therefore, we want to fight in such a way that the world and the international community will remain by our side,” said Jibril Rajoub in a recent interview.

He’s the deputy secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and chief of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs.

The interview was captured and re-posted by officials with Palestinian Media Watch, who monitor media dispatches through that region of the world, report on them and offer analysis.

In light of the terror attacks in Paris that left some 130 dead, and the subsequent Muslim terror attack in California where a Muslim woman who pledged allegiance to ISIS and her husband killed 14 and injured 21, the report was issued.

Rajoub, who appeared on official PA-TV making the comments, was expressing “total support for the Palestinian terror which has murdered 22 Israelis and injured 215 in the last two months,” the report said.

“I congratulate everyone who carried them out (terror attacks). I say to you, we are proud of you,” he said, PMW reported.

The report continued, “However, Rajoub added that Palestinians must be careful not to carry out suicide terror in Tel Aviv, not because killing Israelis that way is wrong, but because the international community rejects and condemns it. Rajoub recommended that Palestinians murdered only those Israelis whose murder the international community will accept as legitimate targets – the ‘settlers and soldiers’ who are killed because they are ‘at the wrong time and in the wrong place.’ Rajoub essentially instructs murderers of Israelis to make sure they murder the right ones.”

The report noted a former editor, Hafez Barghouti, of the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida also had the same concern: that the international community would frown upon murder.

“After the events of [Sept. 1, 2001] in New York, [Ariel] Sharon applied the term ‘terror’ used to refer to those attacks, to our national struggle (i.e., terror campaign – Intifada). I warned about this at the time, and called to keep a low profile until the New York turmoil had passed … Now, after the Paris attacks, we must keep a low profile so that we are not charged with the crimes of ISIS … We must learn our lessons and wait.”

Explained PMW, “According to Rajoub, it is the international community’s message to the PA, possibly through its silence, that it accepts stabbing and shooting murders of Israeli soldiers and civilians in Jerusalem and the West Bank, which enables the PA leadership to continue promoting murder.

“Clearly, the international community shares in the moral responsibility for the current murder wave if this is how the PA leadership perceives their standpoint.”

PMW noted that just on Oct. 13, “two Palestinian terrorists, Baha Alyan (22) and Bilal Ghanem (23) boarded Israeli bus no. 78 in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood with a gun and a knife and attacked passengers, killing Israelis Haviv Haim (78) and Alon Govberg (51), and wounding 4 Israelis. Alyan was shot and killed by an Israeli security guard at the scene and Ghanem, a Hamas terrorist who served time in Israeli prison in 2013-2014, was wounded. Two weeks after the attack on Oct. 27, a 3rd victim in the attack, Richard Lakin (76), died from his wounds.”

The report said, “According to Rajoub, if the international community were to send the explicit message to the PA that it ‘does not agree’ to any PA terror anywhere, the PA would be forced to stop so that ‘the international community will remain by our side.'”
