The vile PA Jew hatred

Maurice Hirsch, Adv.  |

Since its creation, Palestinian Media Watch has documented the vile Jew hatred spouted by the Palestinian Authority and its leaders, as presented to the Palestinian people through the official PA media. While Jew hatred is common place in PA discourse, occasionally even the PA organs and mouthpieces outdo themselves.

In an article recently published in the official PA daily, Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, one of the paper’s regular columnists, presented his overview of the creation of Israel in the aftermath of the Holocaust as a “colonialist state” created to “establish a swamp for the savages who were massacred.” Al-Ghoul continued his diatribe, following the general PA narrative that the “Palestinians” granted the Jews shelter from the “barbaric Nazi, and fascist western and eastern Europe and against the American cowboy” but that the Jews betrayed that kindness:

The Zionist colonialist project brought its tools and its women from the states of western and eastern Europe in order to steal from a people its homeland, to establish its colonialist state of occupation and exile on the ruins of its Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), and to establish a swamp for the savages [the Jews] who were massacred and burned by those who brought them from Europe and from among their various peoples and agreed to be a cheap colonialist pawn at the expense of a people that only provided solidarity, aid, and hospitality to those who arrived in the Palestinian homeland. But they committed betrayal and acts of evil against the people that gave them shelter from the barbaric, Nazi, and fascist western and eastern Europe and against the American cowboy, housed them, and fed them the delicacies of its land. However, ‘genes work in hidden ways,’ as the Palestinian idiom says.”

While portraying Israel as a foreign, European implant to “get rid” of the Jews of Europe is a common PA theme, referring to the Jewish refugees as “savages” is a new level of depravity, even for the PA. 

The following is a longer excerpt of the antisemitic column in the official PA daily:

The Zionist colonialist project brought its tools and its women from the states of western and eastern Europe in order to steal from a people its homeland, to establish its colonialist state of occupation and exile on the ruins of its Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), and to establish a swamp for the savages [the Jews] who were massacred and burned by those who brought them from Europe and from among their various peoples and agreed to be a cheap colonialist pawn at the expense of a people that only provided solidarity, aid, and hospitality to those who arrived in the Palestinian homeland. But they committed betrayal and acts of evil against the people that gave them shelter from the barbaric, Nazi, and fascist western and eastern Europe and against the American cowboy, housed them, and fed them the delicacies of its land. However, ‘genes work in hidden ways,’ as the Palestinian idiom says.

Despite all the bitterness, unfairness, injustice, and oppression by the West and its colonialist tools – the deceived Khazar Jews (sic., genetic research has proven Jews are not the descendants of Khazars and that they share a common origin in Israel), our Palestinian people and the best of its fighters and its people of politics, culture, arts, communications, education, economy, justice, and religion have mobilized to defend the homeland.”
