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’s Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a press release in response to the declarations made by the extreme right-wing Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, demanding that President Mahmoud Abbas [publicly] declare his recognition of Israel as a Jewish state at Birzeit University…
In its statement, Fatah’s Shabiba said that Netanyahu and his right-wing government should learn from history, which has proven at every stage that nations yearning for freedom, justice and independence inevitably achieve victory, and that occupation, racism and darkness are fated to vanish. It [the movement] noted in its statement that every olive tree and every speck of dust in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, Gaza and all of Palestine recognizes the true owners of the land, for Palestinian land is alive and knows its original inhabitants, and knows who the new invaders are. [The message also stated that] the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of our people, their expulsion from their villages and cities and the destruction of [their] villages over 66 years ago, will not erase the facts nor change the true face of the land.
In addition, Fatah’s Shabiba addressed a message to Netanyahu: ‘If this racist would look himself in the face, he would see the snows of Poland, where his father Benzion Netanyahu and his ancestors were born, while, if he had the courage to look into the eyes of the children of Palestine, he would see the soil of Jerusalem, the olive [trees] of Beit Jala, the orchards of Haifa, the coasts of Jaffa, the Arab character of Palestine…’"

Official PA TV Live broadcast a program under the heading, “What will happen after the negotiations?”
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub: “Had Fatah not taken decision-making and the Palestinian national will into its own hands using bullets, it would not have been possible for our cause to change from a refugee cause into a statehood cause. I’m not saying that on April 30 [2014] (i.e., when the negotiations with Israel are scheduled to end), we should pick up rifles and take to the streets, but neither do I rule this out – provided that the struggle be a means, and not an end. Therefore, the most important thing for us to do is… start an internal national dialogue to define our national agenda and our national strategy. In addition to the fact that the Palestinian cause, or Palestine as a state, is now on the international agenda, we have achieved something great and important over [the past] 50 years: We have attained moral supremacy over this criminal, fascist, Nazi occupation."

PA condemns the Holocaust, but includes it alongside "the Israeli occupation regime" as one of "several chapters of catastrophic evil in human history" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 30, 2014
This is a rare and positive example of the PA acknowledging and condemning the Holocaust and its targeting of Jews. However, the PA subsequently compares “the Israeli occupation regime” to Nazi conduct during the Holocaust, listing both as examples of “catastrophic evil in human history”:
Headline
: “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemns the crime of the Holocaust”
     “On [International] Holocaust Remembrance Day, the [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned the acts of massacre that were committed primarily against Jews, as well as against other minorities, which are among the most serious crimes perpetrated by man against humanity. [The Ministry added that these crimes had been perpetrated] in a way incomprehensible and unimaginable to a free person, as part of a process of ethnic cleansing and genocide that will remain a mark of shame upon humanity’s forehead forever.
In a public announcement yesterday [Jan. 29, 2014], the [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs declared that there have been several chapters of catastrophic evil in human history that must be confronted and prevented from recurring… among them are the apartheid regime that blatantly dominated South Africa; the Israeli occupation regime and the domination of another nation, as in the case of the Palestinian nation, whose land expropriated, who was forcefully expelled from it, and who was robbed of land, freedom and honor.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the UN, its organizations and on all nations and specifically the permanent members of the Security Council, to take measures to protect humanity from these crimes’ recurrence and save it from them now, and hunt down the perpetrators [of such crimes.]”
Netanyahu "imitates Hitler's racism," which he acquired "genetically from the days of the Nazis" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2014
     “Benjamin Netanyahu, the current Prime Minister of Israel, is trying to create his own political lexicon, which is different than all his predecessors'... And he is demanding that the Palestinians recognize the Jewishness of the State of Israel! I believe that any Palestinian, ordinary as he may be, and any Israeli with any common sense, can ask Netanyahu, as a kind of challenge, what is his definition of the Jewishness of the Israeli state? ... Does Israel really recognize all its Jewish citizens as Jews, like the Falash Mura [Ethiopian] Jews for instance? And do the Arab Jews - Palestinians, Iraqis, Yemenites and Moroccans - enjoy equal treatment in Israel? I believe that when Netanyahu will broach this topic it will give off a very bad odor of racism. It is possible that Netanyahu has preserved it and acquired it genetically from the days of the Nazis and the Aryan race... Instead of Netanyahu disassociating himself from any act that would remind him of Hitler's racism, he imitates it and wants to replicate it against the people of Palestine, its inhabitants and nation and even against the citizens of the State of Israel themselves!"

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 12, 2014
Op-ed by Adel Abd Al-Rahman, regular ‎columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
     ‎“The only narrative consistent ‎with historic Palestine is the Palestinian ‎narrative, and any other narrative is ‎nothing more than a fabrication meant to ‎justify a colonial occupation that expels ‎‎[the original inhabitants] and settles ‎‎[others in their place]. Therefore, all the ‎claims of the leaders of the Zionist ‎movement, from Herzl to Netanyahu and ‎everyone in between, are false… ‎
Proponents of the Zionist movement are ‎pumping up these lies through their ‎internationally influential media outlets, ‎which are supported in an unprecedented ‎way by the imperialist West, in order to ‎disseminate them and to brainwash the ‎Jews, who have been deceived, to realize ‎‎[their] colonial objectives in the region. ‎This [is being done] because the State of ‎Israel (Note: the Palestinian media ‎generally avoids using this term) was a ‎front line and support base for the ‎capitalist powers… and its purpose was ‎the partitioning of the Arab region and the ‎theft of its resources, to prevent the ‎awakening of the Arab nation and to serve ‎as a way out of the distress of the Jewish ‎question within the given time frame.‎
This conflict was never a religious conflict, ‎and never will be. This is because Israel is ‎using the Jews in order to ignite a new ‎Holocaust against them – not to protect ‎them or their interests – and to embroil ‎them in a war with the Palestinian Arab ‎nation and with the peoples of the Arab ‎nation, even though a central part of the ‎Jews with Israeli citizenship are Arabs – ‎residents of the various Arab nations, ‎including Palestine itself.”‎

Israel practices “Nazi occupation policy” against prisoners 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 12, 2013
     “A delegation from the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine [DFLP] in the Salfit district visited the district’s Ministry of Released Prisoners’ Affairs branch yesterday [Dec. 9, 2013] to congratulate new director, Nadhir Al-Salkhi, who stood at the head of the reception of the [Democratic] Front members, along with the office staff. The [Democratic] Front delegation included [Democratic] Front secretary in the district and central leadership member Hakam Qadri…
Qadri emphasized that it is important to show great interest in the prisoners and their cause, especially during this period, in which they face the Nazi occupation policy, whose purpose is to destroy and kill them.”

Note: The DFLP carried out many deadly terror attacks, including the taking of schoolchildren as hostages leading to the killing of 22 children and 4 adults in Ma’alot (May 15, 1974), an attack on a school bus killing 9 children and 3 adults (May 22, 1970), a bombing in Jerusalem killing 7 (Nov. 13, 1975), the killing of 4 hostages in an apartment building in Beit Shean (Nov. 11, 1974) and a suicide bombing near Tel Aviv killing 4 (Dec. 25, 2003). DFLP has participated in and claimed responsibility for dozens of other terror attacks.
Israel is “the state that carries out acts that are more despicable than Nazi racism!” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 2, 2013
By PA daily columnist and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza Yahya Rabah:
Headline:
“A despicable figure of an oppressive occupation”
     “Israel is the last remaining model of colonialism as well as the last remaining model of the apartheid state, despicable racism and tales that seem like dark fairytales and it can no longer create natural connections or a positive and open leadership.
Israel hates everyone and patronizes everyone. It does not recognize the rights of its Arab citizens or the rights of its Palestinian neighbors and treats its Arab Jews ‘the Mizrahi (eastern) [Jews]’ and its African, Falash Mura Jews – who one day donated blood units and were surprised to discover the next day that they were thrown out – as second- and third-class citizens.
Israel lives contrary to history and outside of history. It does not recognize international or humane law or the legitimate international resolutions and has not noticed that, since the previous century, the entire world agreed to eradicate colonialism. From ‘the state of those who suffered Nazi persecution,’ it became ‘the state that carries out acts that are more despicable than Nazi racism!’ Therefore, being doomed to extremism, settlement and racism, it pushes itself to the inevitable end.”

PA daily op-ed: Palestinians paid the price for Nazi Germany’s crimes

Op-ed by Columnist for official PA daily Adel Abd Al-Rahman:
     “Former Foreign Secretary of Britain Jack Straw dropped a heavy-weight political bombshell on the Israeli ethnic cleansing state in particular and also on the forces agreeing with it and supporting it regarding the option of eliminating the peace process. [He did so] when he presented the Global Diplomatic Forum, held in the British House of Commons, with a stance that is not considered new, but rather a confirmation of something certain. He said: ‘The obstacle to making peace in the Middle East’ is ‘the unlimited Jewish funds that control the American government and Congress and distort the public will.’ In addition, he added another factor, which is, ‘the German obsession with protecting Israel.’ […]
Concurrently, the legitimate Palestinian leadership must turn to decision makers in the US and Germany and demand that they end the unjustified and illegitimate support of the State of Israel, and put an end to their (the US/German) discriminatory policy favoring its [Israel’s] sabotaging policies and work to repair its [Israel’s] reckless policies that contradict historical, current and future facts. In addition, focus should be put on the German leadership, to pull it out of the complex that has stuck to it following what transpired in the Holocaust during the Second World War, especially since Germany has been paying dearly throughout the decades [during which] Israel was established and has remained. As a result of this policy, the price for Nazi Germany’s savagery and crimes was collected from the Arab and Palestinian people. This is something unacceptable according to any logic or law and is unacceptable according to the values of international, human and religious law...”

Israel has “a racist, Nazi policy” to destroy Al-Aqsa Mosque

     “The procession’s participants dedicated their weekly procession to marking the 31st anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, to expressing solidarity with the [Palestinian] Prisoners’ Movement and to directing attention to the settler break-ins to the Al-Aqsa Mosque (any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount is considered a "break-in." However, all visitors are subject to security checks by Israeli security before being granted access to the Temple Mount. - Ed.)… Coordinator of the National Anti-Wall and Anti-Settlement Committee in Bethlehem, Hassan Breijeh said: ‘What occurred in 1982 in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp is the true face of the Antisemitic, Israeli occupation, that cold-bloodedly murdered more than 3,000 Martyrs (Shahids). This is the real ‘holocaust’ that was perpetrated and is perpetrated against the Palestinian people. However, the Palestinian revolution and the Palestinian people will not wait patiently for the number of victims to reach three of four million. The Palestinian people carrying out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) on its land is a living people and we will serve as a barrier against Zionism, even if we pay dearly for that.’ Breijeh added: ‘There is a racist, Nazi policy carried out by the Israeli government, pushing the settlers to invade Al-Aqsa on a daily basis, to bring about its division and destruction. Their plan to organize a procession [attended by] one million in the old city [of Jerusalem] on Tuesday, Sept. 24 [2013] will fail.”

Note: Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982 during the first Lebanon War, a massacre at Sabra and Shatila was committed against Muslims by Christian Phalangists in Lebanon. The PA has a longstanding policy of falsely accusing Israel of committing the massacre or actively helping to carry it out.

I’m certain that if Hitler would come again he would learn from them the art of breaking the will of the people, humiliating the people, [making the] people suffer, destroying the people and massacres...
