Religious War
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.‎

Editor-in-Chief of official PA daily after US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital: “Interference with its history or attempt to change its status… will lead to violence and an explosion of the region... this will open the gates of Hell” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 17, 2017
Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on the PA media campaign for Jerusalem

Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida Editor in Chief Mahmoud Abu Al-Haija: “There is a very important slogan and we adhere to it: ‘If the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) passed, the Trump promise [recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital] will not pass.’ We will act on this basis in the official and private Palestinian media and Arab media… The future of Jerusalem is the future of the peace and stability in the region. Any interference with its history or attempt to change its status in any way other than the negotiation table will lead to violence and an explosion of the region in a way whose end will be bad. Simply, the message is: Jerusalem is the gate to peace in the region and the world; and at the same time, Jerusalem is the gate to war, and to violence and terror, if it does not achieve its freedom and its historical status regarding Palestine as the capital of the State of Palestine, and as a great city of tolerance and peace for the whole world…
It cannot be that we will be dragged into the matter of religious struggle, as this will open the gates of Hell in the region. When faiths clash with each other, there is much bloodshed… It is foolishness to think of changing the history and identity of Jerusalem… Jerusalem is a great city of all of the religions, not only of Islam and Christianity; it is a great city of all of the religions.”

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "This crime that American President [Trump] committed [by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital] is not only against Palestine, but also against all of humanity, against the Muslims, and against the Christians. How does he allow himself to give the keys to Jerusalem to those who are not its people? He wants to repeat the sin and crime of [former British Foreign Secretary] Balfour... How do the Muslims of the world allow this sin? How do the Christians of the world allow handing over the keys to [the Church of] the Holy Sepulchre to those who are not from Jerusalem, to those who are not Palestinians... It could be that everyone knows and everyone assumes that this sin, which the American president committed, will open the gates of hell, as Sheikh Al-Azhar said – not only in the East, but in both the East and the West. Nobody should think, wherever he is in the world, that he will be able to prevent the consequences of this sin... Jerusalem is ours and not yours. It has been ours for 5,000 years and it will remain ours until Allah will inherit the earth and whoever is on it."

Ida’is said in a press release today (Thursday) [Oct. 26, 2017]: ‘The Arabs and Muslims must act immediately to provide political, media, and financial support to the Palestinian cause, as a religious duty, and as a message of support for the Palestinians, because Jerusalem and the Palestinian holy sites do not belong only to the Palestinians, but rather to all of the Arabs and Muslims.’”

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.
