PA TV: Demonic Jews threaten Dome of the Rock

Demonic Jews threaten
Dome of the Rock Mosque

Last week Palestinian Media Watch reported the latest accusation from the PA-appointed Mufti that Israel was threatening the Al-Aqsa Mosque. PA TV repeated a similar libel three days ago by broadcasting an image of a demonic-looking Jew eating the Dome of the Rock Mosque. The image first appeared in the Jordanian newspaper Al-Dustur.

As reported by PMW, the PA Mufti Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, speaking in the Al-Aqsa Mosque, said last week:

"The Al-Aqsa Mosque is threatened by the plans of the enemies of Allah [the Jews], who have violated all faith and religious laws, and even deviated from their humanity."

The PA Mufti made a similar accusation last month, when he told the PA daily newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that Israel was planning to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque in order to build its "alleged temple" on the ruins [May 22, 2010].

Both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (Fatah) have generated and sustained religious hatred by disseminating the libel that Israel is attempting to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This libel is often combined with the call to "defend Al-Aqsa" from the Jews.
