Holocaust libels and misappropriation
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.

Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Holocaust libels and misappropriation
Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse are all components of Palestinian Authority ideology. A PA TV children’s program taught that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens. [PA TV (Fatah), March 25, 2004] At an exhibit in Gaza, children put dolls in a model oven adorned with a Star of David and a swastika. A senior Palestinian academic taught adults on PA TV: “There was no
Dachau, no Auschwitz; these were disinfecting sites.” [PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 29, 2000] A Hamas TV documentary explained that Jewish leaders planned the Holocaust in order to eliminate Jews who were "disabled and handicapped.” [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), April 18, 2008] A crossword puzzle clue in the official PA newspaper identified “Israel’s Center for the Holocaust and the Lies” as “Yad Vashem” – Israel’s Holocaust memorial. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 18, 1999] The same official 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 2 in great detail but omit the history of the Holocaust, which is totally ignored. One history book does teach that Nazism was a racist ideology and that Nazi war criminals were tried, but it does not mention that Jews were the target of the racism, nor the crimes for which the Nazis were on trial. Palestinian education erases the actual Holocaust from history and usurps the word “Holocaust” for 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 March 25, 2004]

The following are more examples of Palestinian Authority Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse. (Note: This material also appears under "Holocaust Denial and Distortion"):

Fatah justifies murder of Jews in the Holocaust with story of alleged Jewish selfishness and evil

Pictures and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

An image shows a montage of three photographs; the one on the left apparently shows soldiers in World War II, while the two on the right show large stacks of dead bodies piled in mass graves during the Holocaust.

Text below image:
"One of the Russian prisoners in World War II wrote in his memoirs: 'In 1941 the Germans made us dig deep pits in the ground. When we finished doing what they wanted, they brought a group of Jews, threw them into the pits, and ordered us to bury them. We refused to carry out this atrocious act. So the Germans ordered to throw us in instead of the Jews, and ordered them to bury us. The Jews began to pour dirt on us without hesitation. The dirt almost covered us, but the Germans stopped them and took us out. We were surprised when the German commander shouted at us: "I just wanted you to know who the Jews are and why we are killing them!"'"

Editorial in official PA daily: US-led Warsaw Conference is "a plan to carry out a 'holocaust' against this [Palestinian] cause"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 10, 2019
Excerpt of editorial by the official PA daily 

     "The [American] administration can’t do this. Through the Warsaw Conference it wishes… to establish new alliances for the purpose of false wars and the consolidation of an arrangement for the Palestinian cause, while relying on [US President Donald] Trump's Zionist deal (apparently referring to Trump's as yet unpublished Middle East peace plan –Ed.) as a basis for this arrangement, which is nothing but a plan to carry out a 'holocaust' against this cause, the most just cause of the current age…
Perhaps it is not a coincidence that Warsaw will serve as the site for the convening of this conference [on] the American administration's failed deal; this is the just ruse of history, which wishes to remind humanity that the holocausts of racist eradication that Nazi Germany carried out in Poland can happen again today as a result of this American policy. It wishes to turn Warsaw – as the Nazis did – into an arena of holocaust of eradication against a small, oppressed, and tortured people, the Palestinian people."

Al-Dawayima - On Oct. 29, 1948, during Israel’s War of Independence, during a battle for the capture of the Arab village of Al-Dawayima in Southern Israel, in addition to combatants, Arabs civilians were also killed. Accounts differ as to whether the civilians were killed during the fighting, as the combatants were fighting from the homes, or were killed after the fighting. While some sources claim a death toll of over 100, a UN report stated that 30 Arab women and children died in the incident.

PA TV sermon: Hitler was sent by Allah to punish the Jews for their evil behavior

Masoud Rayyaan, lecturer on Islamic Shari'a at Al-Quds Open University, in Friday sermon on official PA TV:
(Quran): “Proceed throughout the earth and observe how was the end of those who denied”... The occupation government hasn't learned from history, from the corruption of the Children of Israel the first and second time. It hasn't learned. They [The Jews] didn’t learn from what Nebuchadnezzar did to them.  They didn’t learn from what Titus, the great Roman leader, did to them.  They didn't learn from what Hitler did to them, and the kings of Europe, and Spain – they didn't learn. They have continued to behave the same way: The mentality of arrogance toward other people. The mentality of superiority over other people. The mentality of seclusion, the mentality of settlement. This mentality, an ideology of planning and systematically working to incite wars and strife in the entire world. Those [Jews] have not learned from the events of history."

Op-ed in PA daily compares Israeli Defense Minister to the Nazis
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 22, 2018
   “The man of the mafia and the Russian and Israeli bars [Israeli Minister of Defense] Avigdor Liberman is returning to his mafia roots with one difference – now, he carries a thick official stick as the Israeli colonialism state’s minister of war, and imposes his thuggery, racism, and inferiority on the Arab Israeli Parliament members, and Head of the Joint [Arab] List [party] Ayman Odeh in particular. This is due to the fact that the latter attacked the Israeli Police over the assault of the Palestinian and Jewish Israeli demonstrators who demonstrated in Haifa as a sign of resistance to the Israeli death army’s terror on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip… These statements did not come by coincidence now, but rather they have a connection to the nearing of the parliamentary elections in Israel. This is exactly as Liberman did on the eve of the previous elections for the Israeli Parliament when he wanted to increase the rates of voting. Now he is turning to another way of incitement against the Arab public in general, and not just against Ayman Odeh and the Arab Israeli Parliament members, and in this way he is effectively acting like those similar to him, the Nazis, and is preparing the public opinion on the Zionist Israeli street for [action] against the members of the Palestinian people with Israeli citizenship and persecuting them in the different spheres and fields of life within the lawless State of Israel that is hostile to law, coexistence, and peace.”

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.'”

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."

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, review of Israeli press headlines with PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas

Visual: PA TV’s “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas presents a cartoon from the Israeli paper Yediot Aharonot for Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 12, 2018.

PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas: “The cartoon today [April 12, 2018] in the [Israeli] paper Yediot Aharonot – of course, an elderly female Holocaust survivor with the number that they put on the Jews on her arm. She says to her grandson: ‘Make sure you don’t run out of memory,’ referring to the camera, and he says to her: ‘Don’t worry grandma.’ Of course this describes what is happening now and the memory of the Jews’ Holocaust in Nazi Germany. But the question is whether [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s government is learning or drawing lessons from what happened in Germany during that period – the laws, the members of the Aryan race, and the members of the s uperior race – that is what Netanyahu’s government is currently perpetrating.”

Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 9, 2018
PA TV misappropriated a photo showing hundreds of dead bodies at the Nazi concentration camp at Nordhausen, originally a subcamp of Buchenwald, presenting them as Arabs killed by Jews on April 9, 1948 in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. The actual picture, which was taken right after liberation of the concentration camp by the American army, was carefully distorted by PA TV so that the images of the corpses in the striped concentration camp uniforms, the American soldiers, and the concentration camp buildings were not seen. The following caption was added by PA TV: “When they killed and mutilated the bodies of 250 women, children and elderly residents.”

The PA TV video, which was broadcast on the anniversary of the Deir Yassin battle, also included a photo  of victims of the massacre at the 1982 Sabra and Shatila refugee camp by Christian Lebanese, which was likewise misrepresented as showing Arabs who were killed by Jews.

“In other words, the emergency plans. There are two types of plans presented by the Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall. They are first of all the emergency plans, when homes are destroyed as I mentioned, when cars are confiscated, fines are given, and all of that – these are urgent and essential plans, and they protect the Palestinian presence… Development plans are plans that preserve the Palestinian families staying in these Palestinian areas of concentration, even though these areas of concentration have existed originally from before the establishment of the occupation.  In other words, the occupation is committing all of the types of violence against the members of our people, all of the types of Nazism against the members of our people.
