Yesterday, eve of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Palestinian Media Watch released a special report on Palestinian Authority Antisemitism, detailing the different components of PA antisemitic ideology:

  • The PA teaches that Jews think they are superior to others, but are in fact are inferior.
  • The PA teaches that Jews are Satan’s partner spreading evil in the world and that evil is inherent in Jewish genes.
  • PA Antisemitism blames Jews for all bad in the world;
  • PA conclusion: It is natural that the Jews be hated and in fact, Jews brought Antisemitism on themselves throughout history, including the Holocaust.
  • Ultimately, the PA teaches, the killing of Jews is Allah’s will and their extermination is necessary so all of humanity can live in peace.

The following is a compilation of the antisemitic statements in the short video, that were all broadcast on either official PA TV or Fatah’s official Facebook page:
