"I decided to prevent Jibril Rajoub from entering the state of Israel, because despite the fact that in the Israeli press, he sometimes appears like an almost likeable character – in actual fact, this is a person who has been inciting in a very serious manner against the state of Israel and its citizens lately; attacking the prime minister with harsh words that cannot be repeated; and acting to delegitimize Israel in sports institutions,” said Yaalon.
"I cannot accept a situation in which a person spreads words of demonization and hatred against us, like the worst of inciters, and at the same time asks to enter the state of Israel as if nothing happened. You can't grasp the stick at both ends.”
PMW has in the past exposed that Rajoub denounced Jews as “Satans” and “Zionist sons of bitches” before an audience. In another PMW video, he called Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu a “dog.”
