Religious War

‎"Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of ‎religion and faith. Long Live Fatah!”
[Official PA TV, Jan. 9, 2012] ‎

This statement was made by the moderator at a Fatah celebration and was broadcast ‎on Palestinian Authority TV.‎

The same Islam-based demonization of Jews was voiced by a young man in ‎September 2014 on official PA TV. He recited a poem that described ‎Jews as “most evil among creations… barbaric apes… wretched pigs”:‎
 

‎"O, you who were brought up on spilling blood
O, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets (i.e., Jews in Islamic tradition)
You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship
O Sons of Zion, O most evil among creations
O barbaric apes, O wretched pigs.‎
‎[Official PA TV, Sept. 12, 2014]

Under the PA Fatah leadership, Palestinian society is undergoing a major shift towards ‎radical Islam. In 2010, more than 98% of Palestinians surveyed said that religion plays ‎an important role in their lives, while less than 1% considered religion not important.” ‎‎[Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies]‎

Islamic War against Jews
An integral part of this Palestinian Islamization are the PA teachings that Islam is at ‎war with Jews. As cited above, the PA promotes hateful demonization and libels, which ‎it bolsters with religious teachings that depict Jews as Satan, monkeys, pigs and the ‎enemy of Allah. One poem that has become popular in the PA includes the words “our ‎enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail." This poem has been recited by young children and ‎adults multiple times on PA TV.


The PA promotion of demonization is integrally linked to the PA’s promotion of ‎violence and terror against Jews. The poem cited above depicting Jews as “most evil ‎among creations… barbaric apes… wretched pigs” ended with these verses motivating ‎violence against Jews: ‎
‎“As long as my heart is my Quran and my city
As long as I have my arm and my stones
As long as I am free and do not barter my cause
I will not fear your throngs
My belt is around my waist, and my rifle is on my shoulder.”‎
‎[Official PA TV, Sept. 12, 2014] ‎

To support its teaching, the PA claims that Allah sent humanity a message through Islam’s prophet Muhammad that the killing ‎and extermination of Jews is a necessary step to bring the redemption. The murder of Jews is thus elevated by the PA as a holy act in the service ‎of Allah and humanity.

In January 2012, the PA Mufti taught that the "Hour of Resurrection" can only come after ‎the extermination of Jews:
‎ ‎
PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein: “Palestine in its entirety is a revolution… ‎continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith (sayings and ‎practices attributed to Islam's Prophet Muhammad)… says: "The Hour [of ‎Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind ‎stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call: 'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, ‎there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'” [Official PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]
 

PA and Fatah religious and political leaders have cited this passage on numerous ‎occasions. ‎

Hamas enshrined this religious teaching in its charter and is “looking forward” to this ‎genocide:‎
‎"Hamas has been looking forward to implementing Allah's promise, whatever ‎time it might take. The prophet [Muhammad] said: 'The Hour (of Resurrection) ‎will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews; until the Jews hide behind rocks ‎and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come and ‎kill him!'" ‎
‎[Hamas Charter, Article 7, quoting Sahih Muslim, Book 41, Number 6985]‎

Thus, according to PA religious teaching, the killing of Jews becomes a prerequisite for ‎the fulfillment of the Islamic ideal. This belief has had a significant impact on the ‎Palestinian population. In a 2011 poll conducted by the Israel Project, 73% of ‎Palestinians said they “believe” in the Hadith that preaches that it is Islamic destiny to ‎kill the Jews.

And it is not merely the theoretical ideal to kill Jews that Palestinians support. ‎Following the murder of 11 Israelis in October - November 2014, including the ‎massacre of 4 worshippers in a synagogue and the running over of a three-month-old ‎baby and other civilians in the streets of Jerusalem, a Palestinian poll found that “80% ‎support… attempts by individual Palestinians to stab or run over Israelis in Jerusalem ‎and the rest of the West Bank.” [Public Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR), ‎Dec. 9, 2014]‎

If Palestinians are taught to dehumanize Jews as “monkeys and pigs” and are told that ‎Jews are “Allah’s enemy” whose destiny is to be exterminated by Muslims, then the ‎murder of these 11 civilians is simply part of Islam’s religious war against Jews. ‎

Islamic War against Israel ‎
In addition to the war against Jews, there is a separate religious conflict the PA ‎preaches against Israel that is defined as Ribat, an uncompromising Islamic obligation ‎to defend or liberate land said to be Islamic. Israel is considered to be Islamic land that ‎must be liberated for Allah. ‎

Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs and the Palestinian ‎Authority's Supreme Shari'ah Judge expressed this view in a speech:‎‎ ‎
‎"Al-Habbash emphasized that according to Islamic Shari'ah law, the entire land ‎of Palestine (i.e., all of Israel) is waqf (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment ‎in Islamic law) and is blessed land, and that it is prohibited to sell, bestow ‎ownership or facilitate the occupation of even a millimeter of it." ‎
‎[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 22, 2014]‎

Similarly, PA Chairman Abbas himself called on Palestinians to carry out Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas' statement was broadcast 19 times in 3 days on official PA TV:
"It's not enough for us to say: 'There are those carrying out Ribat' (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It's not enough for us to say: 'The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]'. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places."
[Official PA TV, Oct. 17-19, 2014]

PA schoolbooks likewise teach Palestinian children to view the conflict with Israel as ‎Ribat, defined as: "An action related to Jihad for Allah, and it means: Being found in ‎areas where there is a struggle between Muslims and their enemies." [Islamic ‎Education, grade 12, p. 86]. ‎

Israel is stigmatized as “an enemy” existing on Islamic land and fighting Israel is part of ‎a religious war for Islam. Palestinian youth are taught in school that their conflict with ‎Israel is "one of the greatest of the Ribat, and they [Palestinians] are worthy of a great ‎reward from Allah” and that Palestinians are “in Ribat until Resurrection." [Ibid, pp.86-‎‎87].

Another indication of the success of these PA religious teachings is Palestinian ‎support for terror in the name of Islam. According to the Washington-based PEW ‎research organization, for two years in a row, support for attacking or killing civilians in ‎‎“defense of Islam” was higher among Palestinians than any other Muslim population. ‎In 2012, 68% of Palestinians justified suicide bombings against civilians “to defend ‎Islam (31% “often” and 37% “sometimes”). The percentage of Palestinians justifying ‎suicide terror to defend their religion was twice as high as in any other Muslim country ‎polled, with the nearest being Lebanon, where only 35% justified suicide terror in ‎defense of Islam. [http://pewglobal.org] In 2013, Palestinian support for “attacks on ‎civilians… to defend Islam from its enemies” was at 62% (37% “often,” 25% ‎‎“sometimes”), by far still the highest in the world.‎

The tragic conclusion is that the Palestinian Authority has adopted and is teaching its ‎people the messages of radical Islam: On the national level, PA-Islam denies Israel's ‎right to exist. On the individual level, PA-Islam denies Jews the right to life. Until these ‎ideologies and religious beliefs are changed, there will never be an honest peace ‎process.‎

Headline: “28 years since the assassination of commander Khalil Al-Wazir”
     “Today, Saturday [April 16, 2016], is the 28th anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad,’ deputy commander-general of the forces of the revolution, and engineer of the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993), who was assassinated in his home in Tunisia by Israeli Secret Intelligence Service people under the leadership of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak… Al-Wazir died leaving behind an awe-inspiring legacy of struggle and revolution that inspires respect, which caused many countries to name important streets after him. Likewise, he is survived by a people that carries out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) and does not tire of the struggle with the occupation and of protecting its legal non-waivable rights.”

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

     “These are the Palestinians, descendants of the Canaanites and the Jebusites, the first to dwell on this sacred soil and to inhabit this blessed land. They are the first who set foot on this soil, and built Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Safed, Hebron, Nablus and Tal Al-Rabia (i.e., Arabic translation of Tel Aviv, to wrongly imply the existence of an Arab village of that name prior to Tel Aviv, Ed.). They are those who have put down roots in the heart of Jerusalem, and survived throughout all the centuries, and all the dreams of invaders and greedy ones were shattered on their rocks and chests. Colonialism and all invaders and occupiers passed through here, while the Palestinians continued to carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) and stand firm.”

Fatah official praises “murabitin” (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Nov. 4, 2015
Official PA TV News, live broadcast from the condolence tent for terrorist stabber Fadi Alloun. Interview with Assistant Secretary of Fatah in Jerusalem Shadi Mattour.
Assistant Secretary of Fatah in Jerusalem Shadi Mattour: “We say to the government of Israel, instead of seeking solutions to deter [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem defending their mosque, it [the Israeli government] needs to think about what caused this situation. It needs to think about why Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who stabbed two to death) wrote on his [Facebook] page when he saw a Jerusalem woman being dragged away by the occupation forces. He came [to carry out the operation (i.e., stabbing attack)] in order to protect that woman, he came to help the Al-Aqsa Mosque… For the residents of Jerusalem the Al-Aqsa Mosque is an article of faith. The Israelis need to stay away from the Al-Aqsa Mosque plaza. The sights that the Palestinians see, what is happening to the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and to our people, inflame the emotions of our Palestinian people. The Israelis are mistaken when they say that the problem is 50 Murabitin at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. At the moment of truth, all the Palestinian people will be Murabitin. Muhannad Halabi, the hero Martyr, was not one of the Murabitin, and despite this he broke through all the barriers and all their police, and came to carry out an operation for the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

     "[Israeli] soldiers armed with weapons are smiling, after having unloaded their rage and bullets onto the body of the 20-year-old Martyr (Shahid) Basel Sidr, in the 'Nablus Gate' plaza, or what is called Damascus Gate, which started to cry blood for the Martyrs who fall one by one on the Al-Aqsa [Mosque's] gates and the [Jerusalem] city gates, with which the [Israeli] soldiers and settlers do as they please... Basel ran down the stairs of the Damascus Gate, dressed in military uniform and holding a knife. In front of him were two security guards, and one behind him, and in the middle - a settler, with another armed security guard...  Basel fell after one of the guards shot two bullets at him... A number of the Jerusalem occupation municipality workers waited at the Damascus Gate, at the inner side of the closed gate until they were authorized to come out and remove the traces of the occupation's crime. Upon receiving a phone call, four came out with water and cleaning utensils and there, at the historic theater in front of Damascus Gate, they cleaned pure blood, and afterwards the soldiers opened the gates.However, the rebellious [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem insisted on perfuming themselves with the Martyr's blood, and one of the mothers shouted angrily at the soldiers and her son who was at her side tried to calm her down, but the pain and the rage made them curse the soldiers. The residents of Jerusalem looked at the blood spots which were still on the ground and on the water which turned slightly red from it, formed a circle and recited the [Quranic Sura] Al-Fatiha for the Martyr's [soul]."

PA MP calls terrorist “Jihad fighters” and attends funeral of terrorist killer of 2 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 10, 2015
Member of Palestinian Parliament and Secretary-General of the National Initiative Movement Mustafa Barghouti:  “Yesterday we were at Muhannad [Halabi’s] (i.e., terrorist who stabbed two to death) funeral. The Palestinian people is completely united, with all its strength, in admirable national unity in this popular intifada. The response to Israel for its crimes, attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and murder of young Jihad fighters, is this unity and popular intifada. This popular intifada has broken out and will bring about its goals with Allah’s help.”

Muhannad Halabi (19) killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Al-Qawasmi emphasized in a statement to the press tonight [Sept. 20, 2015] that the true terrorists are the herds of settlers and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's extreme government which protects them and eases the way for their acts of invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, as preparation for its division by areas and times. Likewise, he emphasized that the Palestinian people will not relinquish its land and holy sites, no matter what price it will have to pay."

The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "invasion."

"Division according to areas and times" refers to a proposed law (May 2013) being reviewed in Israeli Parliament that would allow for both Jews and Muslims to pray on the Temple Mount. The law seeks to designate separate prayer times and areas of the site for Muslims and Jews.

      "Fatah spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi stated: 'The Fatah movement will protect the holy places of Islam and Christianity in East Jerusalem, especially the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza. We are determined to remain on our land, and we will not leave it despite the ethnic cleansing war being carried out by the occupation state.'
Al-Qawasmi continued in a statement to the press: '[Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu's racist decisions will never scare our people, and we will not raise a white flag, regardless of the price we have to pay. He must know that when he approaches [the subject of] Jerusalem and the holy places, he sets the entire area on fire and ignites religious conflicts that will have impact on the entire world.' Al-Qawasmi added that Netanyahu and his government are playing with fire as they Judaize East Jerusalem and strive to divide the Al-Aqsa Mosque and its plaza according to times and areas, and we in the Fatah movement will never relinquish our land, our Jerusalem, and our Al-Aqsa."

 "The President of the State of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas stated: 'We are in Jerusalem, and we will remain in it. We will protect the places holy to Christianity and Islam, and will not leave our city. We will continue to cling to every inch of its land.' Today, when he [Abbas] met with activists from occupied Jerusalem in the presidential compound in Ramallah, his honor added: 'There is no door that we won't knock on to make the voice of Jerusalem be heard. I am certain that no harm will befall Jerusalem, though the occupation is waging a brutal war against it. However, we will continue to protect it in every situation. We are speaking with everyone, and everyone is asking what we are doing to make the voice of Jerusalem heard.'
His honor [Abbas] saluted the Murabitin (those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) and stated: 'Every drop of blood that has been spilled in Jerusalem is holy blood as long as it was for Allah. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded, Allah willing.' ... He noted that we will not allow them to carry out their actions and divide the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], and stated: 'The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, and they have no right to defile it with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem."
