54 International Umbrella for Volunteer Israel Advocacy Groups Normalization in sport a burning issue [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 21, 2011]

55 International Umbrella for Volunteer Israel Advocacy Groups Headline: The street and the [sports] association oppose normalization [with Israel], emphasizing: There are rules to raising the flag of Palestine The normalization tournament in Canada [with Israel] has created a strong outcry on the Palestinian street, with the publication of the details of the football match in forum discussions on the Internet and photographs showing participation by Palestinian girl players in a match alongside Israeli girl players. This has caused agitation and anger on the Palestinian street when it comes to such games… Abd Al-Majid Hujjah, Secretary-General of the Palestinian Football Association, announced that the Association intends to appoint an investigative committee to look into the circumstances of participation by groups of girl players in a normalization encounter with Israelis in Canada. He emphasized that the investigative committee will submit its recommendations prior to legal steps being taken against the players. Hujjah said that the position of the Palestinian Football Association on the issue of normalization [with Israel] in sports is well-known already, having been publicized, officially, on more than one occasion. This position has been disseminated among everyone involved and it rules out any contact by the Palestinian Football Association with any activity related to the Israeli side. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 21, 2011]

60 Palestinian Mufti, Muhammad Hussein: Jesus taught Islam not Christianity "We're talking about an ongoing chain [of prophets of Islam], from Adam to Muhammad, representing the call for monotheism and the mission of Islam… The prophets were all of the same religion [Islam]… [e.g.] Jesus was born in this land in Bethlehem… He also lived in Nazareth, moved to Jerusalem, so he was a Palestinian… We respect Jesus, we believe in him [as a prophet of Islam], just as we believe in the Prophet Muhammad. [PA TV (Fatah) April 21, 2009]

61 International Umbrella for Volunteer Israel Advocacy Groups Religiously based non-recognition: Palestinian Authority: Conflict with Israel Is mandatory religious war for Islam

62 International Umbrella for Volunteer Israel Advocacy Groups Mahmoud Habbash, Minister of Religion: "Allah has preordained for us the Ribat (religious war) on this blessed land. We are committed to it by Allah s command. Let no one be mistaken or under the illusion that Ribat (religious war) is a choice and nothing more. It is a commandment that necessitates hardship and requires the person to rush to fulfill this command. If Allah has chosen you for Ribat on the land of Ribat, you, the choicest of God s servants, then this is an honor. The enemy is patient, it is waiting for the nation to collapse. The struggle over this land is not merely a struggle over a piece of land here or there. Not at all. The struggle has the symbolism of holiness, or blessing. It is a struggle between those whom Allah has chosen for Ribat and those who are trying to mutilate the land of Ribat."[PA TV (Fatah), Feb. 12, 2010]
