Holocaust denial and distortion
Libel: Israel imitates Nazi crimes
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.

     ‎“Fatah held a rally in solidarity with Gaza, ‎under the slogan, ‘We are all with the ‎Resistance.’ The movement announced ‎that it supports the resistance in all its ‎forms, and rejects the ‘arrogance of the ‎occupation and the genocide of the ‎Palestinian people.’ […] ‎Fatah delivered numerous messages ‎through Central Committee member Jamal ‎Muhaisen... it saluted ‎the members of the resistance in the Gaza ‎Strip, especially the [Izz A-Din] Al-Qassam ‎Brigades, Hamas’ military wing. ‎
He said that every military ‎operation has a political goal, and that ‎therefore, the political goals of the ‎Palestinian leadership are the same as its ‎military objectives… Muhaisen delivered ‎messages to the Israelis – the ‘new ‎Nazis’ – including implicit and explicit ‎threats...
Muhaisen called on ‎Palestinians in the occupied interior (i.e., ‎Israel) to support their brethren in the West ‎Bank and Gaza, and called on several ‎communities among them whose children ‎serve in the Israeli army – such as the ‎Druze– to refuse to do so."‎

     "This war has proved once again that Israel ‎is a completely artificial state without ‎historic or moral roots, a myth produced by ‎the settlement wave – a fact that prevents ‎it from living normally. As long as it exists, ‎it will only produce things that are against ‎humanity, and as long as its occupation ‎continues, it will produce nothing but ‎massacre after massacre, lies, false claims ‎and libels…‎Benjamin Netanyahu is a ‎descendant of the Nazis [who] worships Hitler’s ways and imitates him in all the ‎Holocausts he has perpetrated.”‎

PA libel: The "new Nazis in the Israeli government of ‎death‎" use "white phosphorus and all existing types ‎of poisons and biological and chemical ‎weapons" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 26, 2014
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist ‎for official PA daily
‎     “The warplanes, battleships, and tanks of ‎the Israeli army of death left no place ‎untouched by their burning fire, bearing ‎thousands of tons of dynamite, white ‎phosphorus, and all existing types of ‎poisons and biological and chemical ‎weapons (Note: There have been no credible reports of Israel using white phosphorus or biological or chemical weapons in the 2014 Gaza war). ‎Nothing is forbidden in the dictionary of ‎the rogue State of Israel, and there are ‎no moral, ethical or legal criteria in its ‎crazy war. All the cities, villages, homes, ‎institutions and agricultural farms of the ‎Palestinian 'gentiles' were included in the ‎target bank of the chorus of new Nazis in ‎the Israeli government of death. Isn’t it ‎time that the world and those who ‎advocate peace, democracy and human ‎rights act to stop the Israeli Holocaust ‎war?”‎

Note: This article was published during the 2014 Gaza war as Hamas was firing thousands of rockets at Israel and as Israel was responding with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.

Israel announced in 2013 that it was discontinuing the use of white phosphorus smoke shells. Israeli Brigadier-General Roy Riftin confirmed to Reuters on Aug. 12, 2014 that Israel was not using white phosphorus in Operation Protective Edge and reiterated that Israel's use of white phosphorus smoke shells in the 2008-2009 Gaza War was in line with international law.

Official PA daily: Israel "perpetrates the most heinous forms of ‎Holocaust against the Palestinian people" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 23, 2014
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist ‎for official PA daily
‎     “There is not a single Palestinian patriot ‎who opposes any form of resistance, ‎especially armed resistance. Firstly, ‎because it is the right of the Palestinian ‎Arab people to employ all forms of struggle ‎until its national goals are realized. ‎Secondly, in 1975, international law (i.e., ‎UN Resolution 3236 of 1974, which ‎reaffirmed the “right of the Palestinian ‎people to regain its rights by all means in ‎accordance with the purposes and ‎principles of the Charter of the United ‎Nations) guaranteed [the right of] ‎Palestinians to employ all forms of ‎struggle. Thirdly, the Israeli occupation ‎and aggression state refuses to accept the ‎option of peace and the two-state solution ‎according to the June 4, 1967 borders, ‎‎[but instead] launches one war after the ‎other, invades and perpetrates the most ‎heinous forms of Holocaust against the ‎Palestinian people in the West Bank, ‎Gaza and the diaspora."‎

     ‎“The Israeli Death and Holocaust State has ‎murdered the hope for a better future.

Note: On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. Israel responded to the kidnapping by conducting house-to-house searches in Hebron and arresting hundreds of Hamas members. The boys' bodies were found by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after the abduction. Two days later, Palestinian teen Muhammad Abu Khdeir was kidnapped and burned to death in Jerusalem in a revenge attack by Israeli extremists. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the revenge killing in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6th; under interrogation, three of the suspects confessed to murdering Khdeir.
