Holocaust denial and distortion
Holocaust denial and distortion
Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse, have all been components of Palestinian Authority ideology. Palestinians from both Fatah and Hamas have accused Israel of burning Palestinians in ovens, and alternatively have accused Zionists of committing the Holocaust against Jews for political, financial or social gain. A PA TV children’s broadcast taught that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens, and at an exhibit in Gaza children put dolls, representing Palestinian children, in a model oven adorned with a Star of David and a swastika. A PA daily wrote: "The exhibit includes a large oven and inside it small [Palestinian] children are being burned; the picture speaks for itself,” as if the exhibit was documenting something true. [Al-Ayyam, March 20, 2008] The event was sponsored by the Palestinian “National Committee for Defense of Children from the Holocaust.”

A senior Palestinian academic taught adults on PA TV: “There was no Dachau, no Auschwitz; these were disinfecting sites.” A Hamas TV documentary explained that it was Jewish leaders who planned the Holocaust, in order to eliminate Jews who were "disabled and handicapped”.

A crossword puzzle clue in the official PA daily identified “Yad Vashem” (Israel’s Holocaust memorial) as a “Center for the Holocaust and Lies.” The same PA daily has published many articles denying the Holocaust, including one that termed the Holocaust a “hen laying golden eggs.”

Schoolbooks produced by the Palestinian Ministry of Education teach the history of World War II in great detail except for the history of the Holocaust, which is totally ignored. One history book goes so far as to teach that Nazism was a racist ideology and that there were trials of Nazi war criminals, but it leaves out that Jews were the target of the racism, and the crimes for which the Nazis were on trial.

Palestinian education erases the actual Holocaust from history and usurps the word “Holocaust” or its own wide range of malicious libels.
This video depicts a PA TV children’s play teaching that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens.
"They [Israel] are the ones who did the Holocaust,
their knife cuts to the length and the width of our flesh...
They opened ovens for us, to bake human beings.
They destroyed the villages and burnt the cities.
And when an oven stops burning, they light a hundred [more] ovens.
Their hands are covered with the blood of our children."
[PA TV (Fatah), March 25, 2004]

In addition, admiration of Hitler continues to be a component of the PA world. A PA funded children’s publication published an essay written by a teenage girl admiring Hitler, who told the Palestinian girl in her dream: "I killed them [the Jews] so you would all know
that they are a nation which spreads destruction all over the world." This essay published in 2011, yet in spite of broad international condemnation following PMW’s exposure, it was not removed from the Palestinian educational website Zayzafuna, when we last checked in Oct. 2013.

Since 2012, there have been a number of statements by the PA or PLO officials acknowledging the Holocaust. This has not yet been incorporated into PA formal education.

Abbas recognizes the Holocaust: “What was done to the Jews… most heinous human tragedy” 
Source: Official PA TV Live, Feb. 8, 2017
Official PA TV, excerpt of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech to the French Senate on Feb. 8, 2017

Abbas speaks about the UNESCO resolution of Oct. 13, 2016, which denied the Jewish connection to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, and said that it was not about religion -Ed.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: "We emphasize that we are not against the Jewish religion. We honor the Jewish religion. We honor the Bible, Allah's prophet Moses, and all of the prophets. All of the prophets that Almighty Allah sent, including the prophets of Israel, we honor all of them. We are not against the Jewish religion. If one of us were to say that he is against the Jewish religion, he would have committed heresy, he is a heretic, it is impossible. Not one person is against the Jewish religion. We consider what was done to the Jews due to the Holocaust as the most heinous human tragedy, especially [in light of the fact] that we have Jewish Palestinian citizens who are a fundamental part of our Palestinian people, the Samaritan Jews (Sic., Samaritans practice Samaritanism –Ed. See note below) in Palestine, Samaritan Jews who live among them. Nobody can discriminate against them, they live their lives like every Palestinian, enjoy their full rights as the Christian Palestinian and the Muslim Palestinian do. Perhaps you do not know of them. They are a minority called the Samaritan Jews who live in Palestine with us, on the land of Palestine. They have the same rights and the same obligations, no one differentiates them from anything. [They are] members of the [PA] Parliament, the [PA] government, members of everything (Sic., there is no record of any Samaritan who is a current member of the PA – Ed.). Therefore, we repeat that we are not against Judaism, but rather against the ones who occupy us and steal our land."
