Demonization of Jews/Israelis
Animalization and dehumanization
Demonization of Jews/Israelis
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will. The PA presents Jews as possessing inherently evil traits. Jews are said to be treacherous, corrupt, deceitful and unfaithful by nature. These Jewish “attributes” and traditions are presented as the unchangeable nature of Jews. Forgeries and fiction masquerading as history are used to document and support the libel that Judaism is in essence racist and evil. Jews are said to be planning and executing heinous crimes, including burning Palestinians in ovens, murder, using prisoners for Nazi-like experiments, and more. If unchecked, these crimes constitute a mortal danger, not only to all Muslims and Arabs but to all of humanity.

The PA assigns responsibility to the Jews for all the problems in the world: Wars, conflicts and civil wars are all said to be triggered by Jews. Indeed, the oppression suffered by Jews throughout history is presented as the legitimate response of nations seeking revenge for the injury caused them by the Jews living among them. The creation of the State of Israel is said to have been a European plot, in order to be rid of their Jews and save Europe from the evil of Jewish presence in their countries.

The following are examples of Palestinian demonization:
Animalization and dehumanization
Palestinian Authority leaders and media repeatedly use animal images to depict Jews. This animalization and dehumanization play a role in preparing PA society to be willing to kill Jews. 

The following are examples of PA depictions of Jews as animals and subhumans.

Palestinian "expert" on Israeli Affairs tells PA TV: "Ideas of the Satans bring decisions denying the freedom of religion through a racist approach" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 12, 2016
Official PA TV program Panorama of the Hour, hosting Palestinian expert on Israeli affairs Ahed Farwaneh, on the ban on broadcasting Muezzin calls by loudspeaker
Palestinian expert on Israeli affairs Ahed Farwaneh: (Calls of “Allahu Akbar" can be heard in the background –Ed.) "Words that have been heard in the skies of Jerusalem since the Islamic conquest, bells ringing in the church, religious ceremonies that call to worship and prayer - this is one of the rights that people realize. [But] then my hand was turned away and ideas of the Satans bring decisions denying the freedom of religion through a racist approach: The strong survive."

On Nov. 13, 2016, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers was approved for a preliminary reading in the Israeli Parliament. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution. This bill is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not refer to any specific religion.
Other countries have already approved or attempted legislation for regulating the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to limit noise pollution. These include India, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Bahrain, the United Emirates, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the UK, Austria, Norway, and Belgium, and the US. The PA has also passed legislation regarding the use of loudspeakers in mosques in order to reduce noise pollution.

Israel is “like a vampire in its violence ‎and hatred to wipe out the Palestinian ‎people”‎ 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 5, 2015
     ‎“Apparently, the Israeli occupation will ‎continue to act against everything ‎Palestinian, and will always show great ‎fervor, like a vampire in its violence and ‎hatred, to wipe out the Palestinian ‎people. This time, the main target is ‎Hebron, as Martyr (Shahid) after Martyr ‎‎[from there], and all Hebron are potential ‎Martyrs. Everyone is in danger of bleeding ‎till his soul ascends to Heaven and a ‎knife is thrown by his side. In the ‎shadow of this, the Palestinian sport has ‎proven once again that it is one of the ‎most important factors in national unity for ‎the realization of important meanings ‎such as social cohesion. My dear reader, ‎imagine a game for first place in the ‎‎[football] league, and that this game is the ‎‎‘Clasico,’ which is usually very ‎competitive. How could you imagine that ‎all these factors and meanings could ‎become nothing, and even turn into calls ‎from one side of the audience to the other, ‎and sometimes the audiences of both ‎teams call in one voice for Palestine, its ‎capital, and its Martyrs’ blood, so that ‎victory becomes unimportant. That is what ‎happened in the game between the ‎‎[Shabab] Al-Khalil and Shabab Al-‎Dhahiriya [teams]…‎ In this game, we felt the absence of a fan ‎who was always present at the ‘Clasico’ ‎and participated in all the events for the ‎devout fans. However the occupation ‎caused his absence, murdering him with ‎gunfire in Jerusalem, and his pure body is ‎still being held by them. He who was the ‎most active devout fan of the Al-Khalil ‎team – Martyr Basel Sidr.”‎

PLO Ambassador demonizes Israel as “rampant villains” and “wild bull”‎ 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 29, 2015
On Jan. 28, 2015, Hezbollah bombed Northern Israel, killing two Israeli soldiers. Adli ‎Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for the official PA daily Al-Hayat ‎Al-Jadida, wrote the following op-ed in response to the bombing: ‎ ‎
     ‎“Hezbollah’s operation (i.e., shooting of missiles) at Sheba Farms [in Northern Israel]... the most important aspect of this resistance operation was ‎the fact that it put the quarrelsome ones (i.e., Israel) into a state of unrest, for [it showed ‎them that] not every bombing produces harmless results, and not every escalation is ‎free of consequences or considerations to be taken by the aggressors (i.e., Israelis).
In addition, no one in the Arab world will be able to profess his friendship with those ‎addicted to carrying out bloody attacks against all their neighbors (i.e., Israel), since ‎their daily actions would convince all the Arabs, despite their [internal] conflicts and ‎disagreements, that whoever fails to oppose these rampant villains, within the ‎possible constraints, deserves to be isolated. Furthermore, even those Arabs who ‎present themselves as moderate and as supporters of peace will sooner or later find ‎themselves wishing that this wild bull be contained...
We do not deny our joy at the fact that this quarrelsome occupation received a limited ‎response, the minimal response on Hezbollah’s part. The occupiers thought that no ‎one would dare fire at them, but from now on they will think twice before embarking on ‎a ‘joyride’ war against Lebanon. And they have already understood that if they do, they ‎will suffer exactly as the Lebanese!”‎

PA daily: "Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to the rampaging of the occupation... and to the absurdity of their mythological delusions" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 30, 2014
Headline: “The purification of the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
Article from the culture section of the official PA daily by poet Al-Mutawakkil Taha
     “Hell has many gates, and the most dangerous gate is the gate of the alleged false Temple. When they pass through the streets in their heavy army boots, they shouted, as above every place where a prophet prayed or bowed there is an angel nearby. If we wish, victory is in our hands!

And insanity is preferable to cowardice, and whoever does not go crazy is a person who cannot be trusted. The viper glances at the eyes of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and blurs its senses. It almost submits, but it is greater than the mouth of the viper. And the blood is damp on the ground of Jerusalem.

And we will say: Enough! And the gods will smile on us. Our silence allowed the absurdity. And there is an ancient evil wandering the hills surrounding Jerusalem, and no one is monitoring it!
O confused listener. Do not hold your breath, and listen properly to the stones. Every time we shake the hand of the murderer, we are destroying the rocks and killing the trees. If Jerusalem is our prison, it is their grave. And your people, with its bare chest, breathing at your back, O Al-Aqsa Mosque.

How can a Muslim or Arab dare claim that he is a real Muslim, when the Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to violations, desecration, and extreme Biblical games? How can anyone open his mouth and say ‘I am an Arab’ while the Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to the rampaging of the occupation and its settlers and to the absurdity of their mythological delusions? Saladin (i.e., Muslim leader and Sultan of Egypt and Syria who defeated the Christian crusaders and conquered Jerusalem in 1187 CE) forbade himself to smile and was ashamed of everyone who laughed while the Al-Aqsa Mosque was held captive!…

Netanyahu and his associates are “devils”; “their evil souls tempt them to murder more and more”

Op-ed by Fathi Al-Bis, regular columnist for the official PA daily:
     “In his response to the barbaric Zionist aggression against the Palestinian people, particularly in the Gaza Strip, the President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, said: ‘It seems the devil has possessed [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu.’ We in this region, for our part, say that Netanyahu and his associates truly are devils, unparalleled in perpetrating evil acts. Their evil souls constantly tempt them to murder more and more, and nothing else, under the illusion that murder is what will protect and save them from the existential fear concerning the fate of their cancerous entity, which can only be cured by [its] leaving our land.”

Note: On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teens were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank. 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, a Palestinian teen was kidnapped and murdered in Jerusalem in what may have been a revenge attack, although this has yet to be confirmed. Following this murder, Palestinians took to the streets of eastern Jerusalem in violent protests.
