Holocaust denial and distortion
Holocaust denial, libels 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.

President Abbas says he did not intend to offend Jews, following Antisemitic speech 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, May 4, 2018
"President Mahmoud Abbas stated on Friday that 'if people were offended by my statement in front of the PNC, especially people of the Jewish faith, I apologize to them. I would like to assure everyone that it was not my intention to do so, and to reiterate my full respect for the Jewish faith, as well as other monotheistic faiths.'
He continued, 'I would also like to reiterate our long held condemnation of the Holocaust, as the most heinous crime in history, and express our sympathy with its victims.'
'Likewise, we condemn anti-Semitism in all its forms, and confirm our commitment to the two-state solution, and to live side by side in peace and security.'”
Abbas in Antisemitic speech claims Jews' "social role that was connected to usury, and banks" caused Antisemitism, Holocaust; claims some Jews are descended from Khazars; denies Jewish connection to Israel 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 30, 2018

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:  "The sons of Jacob were 12. Where did you bring 13 from? They invented it. Where? In the Khazar Kingdom. When? In the 9th century. It was an irreligious kingdom. Afterwards it became a Jewish kingdom. The emperor converted to Judaism and therefore [the kingdom] converted to Judaism.  Afterwards it broke apart, and all its residents migrated to Europe, and these are the Ashkenazi Jews (this claim is rejected by experts and genetic testing confirms uniform origin of the different Jewish communities-Ed.). The Ashkenazi Jews are not Semites, and they have no connection to Semitism or Abraham, Jacob, or others. It was a Tatar-Turkic state... Second, these Jews who migrated to eastern and western Europe were subjected to massacres by some state every 10 to 15 years from the 11th century until the Holocaust that took place in Germany. OK, but why did this happen? They say: 'Because we are Jews.'...  The hatred of the Jews is not due to their religion, but rather due to their social role. If so, it's a different issue. And therefore, the Jewish problem that was common in all of the states of Europe against the Jews was not due to their religion, but rather due to their social role that was connected to usury, and banks, and so forth... Now we are talking about the Jewish homeland. They are talking about longing for Zion and that's why they are going [there] and so forth. I say - not me, rather history says that these words are baseless."

If they besiege him and make an arrangement for you, he will say: 'They should pay a trillion - a trillion and a half immediately.' What is this? He is Gestapo. O Allah, expose and reveal this!

Netanyahu employs "hellish plan" to "blackmail" the world with pictures from the Holocaust in order to justify describing Palestinian "fighter prisoners" as "terrorists"  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 25, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is taking advantage of the world’s preoccupation with the war on terror and is attempting to pass his hellish plan to crush the Palestinian cause. This is while in his head is the wicked thought that the world does not distinguish between a terrorist criminal and the last of the freedom fighters, and that the world will submit to his blackmail every time he presents pictures from the Jewish Holocaust and the sword of Antisemitism in order to justify the description of the Palestinian fighter prisoners fighting for freedom as terrorists.”

In a governmental meeting on April 23, 2017, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The Palestinian Authority needs to stop funding the terrorists sitting in prison and stop funding the families of terrorists who were killed while committing their crimes. This is a simple and clear test of the Palestinians’ desire for peace. You cannot be in favor of peace with Israel, and at the same time glorify and fund the murderers of Israelis and the murderers of other innocents.” The statement came after Netanyahu, in an interview with Fox News on April 21, 2017, called on the PA to “stop paying terrorists.”

Headline: "Trump's first days, 'the alternative facts'"
Op-ed by Ayman Al-Sayyad, first published on the Egyptian news website Shorouk
     "It could be that [US President Donald] Trump does not know the meaning of the word eugenics, and I do not think he has read [the writings of Francis] Galton (a pioneer in eugenics, wrote many books in the 19th century CE –Ed.), as people like him do not read at all. However, in all his positions regarding the other, immigrants, or women, it seems that he is faithful to the same destructive principles that have in the past led racists such as Hitler to almost destroy the world…
History shows us that racist ideas that espouse the superiority of one race over another, as Hitler believed, led to a world war whose victims numbered more than 60 million, and I repeat – 60 million…
Anyone who does not know what discrimination on the basis of origin or identity is can review [Trump’s] decision to ban [the entry of] 'all' citizens of the seven states the decision included, and I repeat 'all citizens,' not the terrorists or the extremists among them, and not even those about whom there are security concerns… Why? Because racists are illogical and they put all the rest, and I repeat – 'all the rest,' in one category. The Nazis who believed in the superiority of the Aryan race acted in this way, and the Zionists act this way when they think that they are ‘Allah's chosen people.'"

Op-ed by Dr. Oudeh Masharqah

"Between Nov. 2 (i.e., the date of the Balfour Declaration) and [Nov.] 29 (i.e., the date of the UN partition resolution), the Palestinian people have experienced events and memories that are like a lump in the throat and cause it to deeply feel the historical injustice that [Britain] itself perpetrated against an injured people… During my previous official work I met with then British Consul General [to Jerusalem] Sir Vincent Fean , who speaks fluent Arabic. During the introductory conversation between us, I asked him: 'When will Britain acknowledge its crime and the historical injustice that it perpetrated against our Palestinian people?' I continued: 'Germany has clearly expressed that it feels this way towards the Jews for reasons related to what is called the “Holocaust” and [Adolf] Hitler's acts. As a result of these feelings, Germany has expressed great sympathy for the occupation state and has given and still gives it comprehensive aid, which includes for instance giving a very advanced German submarine to Israel, and much additional aid, along with providing broad political support..."

PA daily: Balfour, like Hitler, wanted to get rid of the Jews, so he sent them to Palestine instead of killing them 
Source: Falestinona, website of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon, Nov. 23, 2016
Headline: “Reconsidering the Balfour Declaration”
     “[Former British Foreign Secretary Arthur] Balfour was himself an Antisemite, and he often attacked the Jews who immigrated to Britain during his term as prime minister from 1903-1905 (sic., 1902- 1905), and he said that they are not assimilating among the residents, and issued laws that limited the Jewish immigration (Aliens Act) [parentheses in source]. He reasoned that the Jews, as an organic group, could not solve their problem within the European cultural structure, in other words, through assimilation in the [European] societies (sic ., Balfour was quoted as saying Jews could either assimilate in Europe or establish a state in Palestine; see note below). The solution would only be possible outside of the cultural structure, in other words, through colonialism…
The difference between [Adolf] Hitler and Balfour in this field was that Balfour had colonies, among them Palestine, and he sent the Jews there in order to get rid of them. Hitler did not have colonies, and therefore he got rid of them through extermination. However, the true victims of both Balfour and Hitler were the Palestinians and the Arabs, and we are still paying the price after 100 years.”

PLO official: Balfour Declaration "constituted the basis for all of the injustices... committed against the Palestinian people, as well as the Palestinian holocaust that has been continuing for the past 100 years” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 1, 2016
Headline: “National condemnation of the Balfour Promise, and the [PLO] Department for Refugee Affairs prepares to launch a campaign against the ominous promise”
      “PLO Executive Committee member and Director of the [PLO] Department for Refugee Affairs Tayseer Khaled called on all Palestinians of all political and ideological affiliations in the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel), the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the refugee camps, and the countries of the exile and the diaspora to unite around the national campaign denouncing the colonialist Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration).
This is for the approaching 100th anniversary of this promise, which constituted the basis for all of the injustices that the Zionist movement and the State of Israel committed against the Palestinian people, as well as the Palestinian holocaust that has been continuing for the past 100 years before the eyes and ears of the international community.”

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” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

“[Israeli] Deputy Chief of General Staff and Major General Yair Golan is not a passing figure in Israel, and is not from the ranks of the Israeli opposition. He is from the heart of the Israeli security and military services, and yet he recently expressed views that greatly angered Netanyahu and many members of his government who are members of the extremist and racist hawks. He said that the behavior of the Israeli army’s soldiers against the Palestinians is not less despicable than the Nazi actions and the Nazi Holocausts (sic.) against the Jews (sic., he actually said that we must be careful not to act like the Nazis and uproot any signs of intolerance and violence).”

“The Holocaust, as I see it, must enable us to deeply reflect on the nature of man. It must bring us to deeply reflect on the responsibility of leadership and the nature of society, and it must enable us to think fundamentally about how we, here and now, are conducting ourselves toward orphans, widows and their like. Indeed, there is nothing easier than to simply hate the other, there is nothing easier than to provoke fears and strike terror; there is nothing easier than barbaric behavior, moral corruption and hypocrisy. On Holocaust Remembrance day, it is appropriate to discuss our abilities to extricate from among us signs of intolerance and violence, signs that we're heading towards self-destruction and down the road to moral depravity.

     “The Palestinian media monitoring by Israel distorts Palestinian statements and articles, takes them out of context, and markets them mainly to the American government as Palestinian incitement. One day [years ago], President Mahmoud Abbas summoned me to his office when he was still secretary of the [PLO] Executive Committee, and told me that Israel is using the [issue of] incitement against us...  I said: There is an Israeli department for monitoring Palestinian media and statements that distorts articles, takes them out of context, and spreads them among the Americans as though they [the articles] are inciting and Antisemitic. They went as far as taking advantage of a misprint in a crossword puzzle [reported by PMW in 1999, Ed.] and considering it incitement, as there was a question about a Holocaust and heroism monument, 'Yad Vashem’ (i.e., The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, Israel's official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust), and the typesetter made a mistake and wrote ‘the lie’ (the words are similar in Arabic: “heroism” -“butula,” “lie” - “batel,” -Ed.). This ‘grave' incident reached news agencies and radio stations, and Yasser Arafat summoned me to explain the circumstances of this great uproar. I explained to him the truth of the matter, and after an investigation it turned out that it was an unintentional misprint, as the original word was ‘heroism.”
