"Jibril Rajoub, chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, Thursday called for expelling Israel from all international Olympic unions and committees until it honors international agreements.Isn't this the behavior of a poor, suffering, oppressed people, who have no voice and no hope?
Rajoub said that he was personally prepared to lead the anti-Israel campaign, but only if he got help from the Arab countries.
He also voiced strong opposition to any form of normalization with Israel, particularly in the field of sports.
The term normalization does not exist in the Palestinian sports dictionary, Rajoub stressed during a seminar in Ramallah.
He added that sports in the Palestinian territories was "one of the methods of resistance" against Israel."
