By PMW.. On March 11, 2018, Palestinian Media Watch submitted a complaint to the Israeli police against Palestinian leader Jibril Rajoub for incitement to murder during the 2015 – 2016 Palestinian terror wave (“The Knife Intifada”). Joining PMW’s complaint were the relatives of three terror victims, Avraham Weissman, Doron Mizrachi, and Natan Meir, whose loved ones were murdered in the months following Rajoub’s incitement to murder.  Following three months of PMW’s waiting for the police to initiate an investigation, PMW turned last week to the Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan who is responsible for the police and asked him to intervene. In response, Minister Erdan sent a letter to the Attorney General Dr. Avichai Mandelblit asking him to instruct the police to investigate Rajoub based on PMW’s complaint:

“On March 11, 2018, a complaint [by PMW] was submitted to the Israel Police against Rajoub for incitement to violence and terror… Rajoub explicitly and consistently incites to terror and violence in a manner that can harm and lead to acts of murder and violence, I ask you to order the launch of a police investigation against him.” [See full text of Erdan’s letter below]

In addition, based on the evidence PMW supplied, Erdan asked the Attorney General to immediately prohibit Rajoub’s entry into Israel:

“It is unreasonable to me that the State of Israel would act to grant permits to someone who incites to violence and terror, and who acts in every way to harm it and its citizens. Therefore, I ask that instructions be given to withhold from Rajoub any entry permit to territory of the State of Israel from now on.” Read the full story.
