Shimon Peres (l), Jobril Rajoub (c) and Aryeh Deri (r) at the 2011 President's Conference. Rajoub has called for renewed terror attacks against Israel.

During a visit to Iran last week, Jibril Rajoub called for a return to armed resistance against Israel if Kerry’s peace talks fail, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

Armed Resistance is a euphemism for suicide bombers and other terror attacks, and Rajoub is one of the Palestinian Authority’s strongmen, as well as the current deputy chief of the Fatah (PLO) Central Committee.

During his visit, Rajoub met with the Iranian foreign minister Mohamad Juar Zarif.

The meeting signifies an end to the freeze between the Palestinian Authority and Iran that went on for many years.

On an “Al Alam” Iranian TV interview, Rajoub said that if the talks failed, “returning to armed resistance would be a good strategy for the Palestinians.” While the PA ambassador to Iran made sure to mention that the talks have reached a dead end.

No one from the Palestinian Authority denounced Rajoub’s pronouncements of renewed terror attacks, while Hamas responded and said the statement was a welcome positive change, and Islamic Jihad said they hoped [Palestinian Authority Prime Minister] Abu Mazen would visit Iran soon.

Abu Mazen released an official statement that, “It’s understood how important the renewal of ties with Iran are for the Palestinian nation.”

Israel has expressed concern that if a “Palestinian State” were to be created, they would immediately sign treaties with Israel’s enemies, such as Iran, and bring Iran onto the Israeli border.

It doesn’t look like they’re waiting for a state to do that.

  1. if iran is brought to the Israeli border it will signal the start of a battle against Israel and an all out attack and iran is on the way to atlantic ocean already to u.s. coastal border and that's another possible attack to start that is a war that is about strike I don't believe irans lies about a 3 month mission in u.s. waters in atlantic ocean its all a lie they are intercepting united states for attack from Iranian warships coming here

  2. When either party (Iran or the PA) or their surrogates attack Israel, let the lines be drawn. Anybody still calling Israel the instigators of the violence should be considered the same as anybody else who patronizes or promotes terrorism.

    Let's stop the madness by agreeing that we will no longer negotiate with terrorists and liars, or we'll be too busy putting out the fires they cause to save ourselves from the upcoming natural disasters that we'll have to deal with in order to avoid the next dark-age. It's a matter of "when", not "if". Seriously, this world needs to get its stuff together soon or the last thousand years of advancement will be lost. And this game of sticking it to Israel threatens to disrupt what little capabilities we have deal with and survive the next global disaster. I'm not a psychic or a prophet either…just a guy who knows that everything comes in waves and we've been riding high for a while now.

  3. Abu-Mazen, Gibril Rajoub of the PA, Ismail Hanniye of Hamas, Hizbollah and Iran have only one objective, namely to erase the name of Israel from the Map, to kill or exile the six million Israeli Jews and to persecute Jews everywhere, and they do not disguise their intentions, which they keep proclaiming globally with renewed zeal, in the same way that Hitler, Yimach Shemo did in the 1930's, prior to his Final solution of the 'Jewish problem '. The Israeli left is deliberately oblivious to our enemies plans, in the same way that they behaved prior to the Holocaust, cheating themselves and its victims that Hitler's threats were not serious.

    Netanyahu demands that our sworn enemies will recognize Israel as a Jewish State, whilst he co-operates with his coalition partners in persecuting Judaism and its bearers. May be he has no option, however when speaking to Obama's messenger, Kerry – who is the present days Pharaoh, he should at least support his demand by referring to our Biblical rights to the Holy Land of Israel, and he should demand the realization of the Divine promise given by G-d of Israel to the three Patriarchs, Abraham, Yitzhak and Ya'acov. In this way Netanyahu will spread the word of G-d globally, just as Moses did.

    Netanyahu must be strong and not fooled by promises of material gains. He should support Ya'alon who said that Boycotts will not deter us, we shall overcome.

    Netanyahu remember the 1949 Rhodes Armistice agreements, violated by the Arabs. Do not repeat the same mistakes of the Doves. Be strong, you will succeed.

  4. Yeppers, our Muslim potus hates Israel, and has sent his ass of an DoS secretary, the redoubtable John Kerry, who has been a traitor since the 60's. to threaten one of our most faithful allies. The PEOPLE of the USA stand with Israel and always will. Obozo? Not so much. #ImpeachObama
