Demonization of Jews/Israelis
Jews/Israelis are evil
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:

Op-ed by PLO official glorifies imprisoned terrorist Marwan Barghouti, demonizes Israel

Excerpt of an op-ed by Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake

Headline: “Prisoner Marwan Barghouti: I hope [to achieve] Martyrdom-death (Shahada) twice for this great people”
       “Prisoner Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered) has decided to lead the hunger strike that is not limited in time on April 17, 2017, in conjunction with the start of the Palestinian Prisoner’s Day activities. He called this step The Battle of Freedom and Dignity. In a statement he presented a series of humanitarian demands connected to improving the living conditions of all the male and female prisoners who are in the prisons.
Fifteen years after he was kidnapped and arrested by the occupation forces, Barghouti has understood that the occupation government is trying to decide the battle against the prisoners in the prisons by controlling them and turning them into mere ghosts and numbers, and by negating their symbolism as legal fighters and freedom prisoners who have fought and sacrificed for freedom, dignity, and independence…"

Fatah official: US request to extradite Sbarro bombing accomplice constitutes "support for the racist Israeli policy" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 18, 2017
Headline: “Gaza: The Prisoners’ Committee condemns the American demands to turn over released prisoner Tamimi”
     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member and [Fatah] Movement General Commissioner for Prisoners’ Affairs in Gaza Tayseer Al-Bardini condemned the American request to Jordan to turn over released prisoner Ahlam Tamimi (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 15) on the pretext that her name appears on the terror list.
Al-Bardini said that the American request to re-arrest released prisoner and journalist Ahlam Tamimi is a continuation of the harming of the members of our people and of the support for the racist Israeli policy.
The Prisoners’ Committee of the National and Islamic Forces in Gaza also condemned the American demands to arrest and turn over released prisoner Al-Tamimi.”

Ahlam Tamimi was serving 16 life sentences for leading a suicide bomber to the Sbarro pizza shop in Jerusalem on Aug. 9, 2001. 15 people were murdered in the attack, 7 of them children, and 130 were injured. In October 2011, Tamimi was released as part of the Shalit prisoner exchange deal brokered between the Israeli government and Hamas. In that deal, Israel released 1,027 Palestinian prisoners in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.

Speech by Abbas at the celebration of the formulation of the Public Service Ethics Code


PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:
“The international community is becoming more and more convinced that the occupation of the Palestinian state by Israel is the reason for all the disasters that the region and the world are suffering from, and that without a just solution to the Palestinian issue in accordance with the two-state solution - which is included in the Arab Peace Initiative - and the relevant resolutions of the [UN] Security Council, neither peace, nor security, nor stability will be achieved, and the region will remain exposed to very difficult possibilities, especially in light of the growth of the phenomenon of terror and extremism, which we condemn and are fighting against with all of our strength.”

PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Proposed Israeli law regulating noise is “racist” which will lead to “religious war for the entire region” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 9, 2017
      “[PA] Minister of Religious Affairs Sheikh Yusuf Ida’is condemned the approval of the law to ban sounding the call of the Muezzin (i.e., the person who sings the Muslim call to prayer) by what is called the Ministerial Committee for Legislation in the Israeli government (sic., the law, which does not specify any religion, was approved in its first reading by the Israeli Parliament on March 8, 2017; the Ministerial Committee authorized it on Feb. 12, 2017). He said that this law expresses racism that has strays beyond the political dimensions into religious dimensions, which herald a religious war for the entire region due to a blow to the freedom of belief.”

On Feb. 12, 2017, a bill to ban religious institutions from broadcasting over loudspeakers between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. was authorized by the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation and is now pending parliamentary approval. The bill is intended to prevent noise pollution and is referred to by many as the "Muezzin Law," although it does not apply 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.

Official PA daily op-ed: Sharon poisoned Arafat 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 6, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “At this opportunity, I remind [you] that the national leader, symbol Yasser Arafat – whose office in Ramallah was besieged by the Israeli occupation army for over two years (i.e., during Operation Defensive Shield) and afterwards [former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon assassinated him with poison (sic., claims that Arafat was poisoned have been disproven by medical examinations) – underwent a political assassination prior to that.”

Operation Defensive Shield - a large Israeli military operation in April 2002 in response to the many suicide bombings during PA terror campaign (the second Intifada, 2000-2005). Israel put Arafat under siege and invaded six of the largest West Bank cities in an attempt to destroy the terror infrastructure.
PA Ministry of Information condemns decision to rename Yasser Arafat street as proof "that the occupation’s mentality is gripped with extremism" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 6, 2017
Headline: “National condemnation of the removal of Martyr Arafat’s name from a street in Jatt"
     "The order given by the occupation's [Israeli] Minister of the Interior Aryeh Deri to Jatt Council Chairman Muhammad Taher Watad to remove [former] President Martyr (Shahid) Yasser Arafat’s name from a street in the village that was named after him years ago has awakened a sharp Palestinian condemnation and was described as a racist and hostile decision…
[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu ran an incitement campaign against the residents of the village of Jatt, which is in the Triangle (i.e., a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages in northern Israel), for naming [a street] after the late president... The Palestinian [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that naming a street in the village of Jatt that is within the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel) after Martyr Yasser Arafat angered Netanyahu in an unprecedented manner…
The ministry said in its statement: 'The late president [Arafat] is the one who began the path of peace with Israel, and he is the one that led the peace process between the two sides. Therefore, naming a street after him should not constitute a problem for any side in Israel, especially considering the fact that Jatt is an Arab village that gives its streets Arab names…’
The [PA] Ministry of Information said… in a press statement that the fact that Netanyahu is persecuting a people's memory and a homeland's history proves that the occupation’s mentality is gripped with extremism, and that [the occupation] practices racism even when the matter concerns the names of streets and squares, while it glorifies murderers and holds ceremonies to celebrate terrorists."

PA daily libel: Israeli army, other Israelis participated in 1994 Cave of the Patriarchs Massacre

Headline: “Today is the 23rd anniversary of the massacre at the Ibrahimi Mosque”
      “Today (Saturday) [Feb. 25, 2017] is the 23rd anniversary of the massacre at the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., the Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, which cost the lives of at least 29 [Muslim] worshippers, in addition to 150 wounded. On Feb. 25, 1994… terrorist Baruch Goldstein perpetrated the abominable massacre against dozens of worshippers at the holy site, with the participation of the occupation forces and groups of settlers from Kiryat Arba (sic., Goldstein carried out the attack alone). While the massacre was being perpetrated, occupation soldiers who were at the occupied site locked the gates of the mosque in order to prevent the worshippers from fleeing. They also prevented those arriving from outside the holy compound from reaching its plaza to save the wounded.”

Cave of the Patriarchs massacre - On Feb. 25, 1994, Baruch Goldstein, a member of an Israeli far-right movement, opened fire on Muslims praying inside the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, known to Muslims as the "Ibrahimi Mosque," killing 29 and wounding 125. Following the attack, which was widely condemned by Israeli leaders and Jewish communities abroad, the Israeli government took concrete steps to prevent similar attacks from occurring by dividing the area of worship into Muslim and Jewish sections and designating several extremist movements, including Goldstein’s, as illegal terrorist groups.

Al-Salehi added in a statement that reached Ma’an that ‘The previous American administrations were biased and partners of the occupation, and strove to defend it in all of the international circles, alongside the military and material support that they provided it. However, the new American administration is also an ideological partner of the idea of occupation and racism that the Netanyahu government is implementing, and this presses the occupation towards greater expansion, aggression, and annexation, including ratification of what is called the Regularization Law that legalizes the theft of Palestinian lands.’ …
He called on the young Palestinians to broaden the campaign of creating contact, including through the social networks, with the forces opposing Trump and racism, and also to broaden the boycott campaign, and to organize activities in conjunction with their struggle with the forces opposing racism in a manner that will serve our people’s struggle against the occupation and racism.
He said: ‘This reality confirms, in a manner that leaves no room for argument, the failure of the policy that gambles on the US, and strengthens the need to immediately end the rift [between Fatah and Hamas], to strengthen the resolve of our people, and to build a unified front for the popular uprising (i.e., including violence).’”

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.'"

PLO official claims US embassy move "means that the US is Israel’s partner in committing a war crime"

Headline: “Abu Yusuf: Transferring the embassy is a dangerous step and American participation in war crimes”
     “Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Wasel Abu Yusuf emphasized that transferring the American embassy to Jerusalem is a very dangerous step that means that the US is Israel’s partner in committing a war crime and violating the international law and a principle that has existed since World War II, according to which it is forbidden to annex the territory of others by force.
Abu Yusuf said: ‘[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s positions prove on the ground that it is not possible to establish a Palestinian state whose capital is Jerusalem, and he is trying in this way to gain time.’ He noted that transferring the embassy will cause the spread of terror and the undermining of the stability in the region, in light of the strengthening of the settlement…
He also noted that Jerusalem is the occupied capital of the State of Palestine, and transferring the embassy to it contradicts the decisions of the international bodies, international law, and agreements that were sponsored by the US.
Abu Yusuf emphasized that this constitutes a serious position, as the Palestinian leadership has options, the most prominent of which is strengthening the resolve of our people and its refusal of dictates, and therefore it is necessary to act to expand the scope of the popular resistance in all of its forms (i.e., including violence) and to strengthen the international boycott of the occupation state.”
