PA: Israel is “reenacting the Nazi Holocaust,” Zionism is “Nazism,” Israelis are the “new Nazis”
Israel “surpasses German Nazism”
Israel commits “Hitleresque holocaust anew against the Palestinians”
Tomorrow Israel is commemorating Yom Hashoah - Holocaust Memorial Day. While the world recognizes that there is nothing comparable to the systematic murder of 6,000,000 Jews in the Holocaust, Palestinian Authority and Fatah leaders, as part of their incessant libelous demonization of Israel, regularly compare Israelis to Nazis, Israel to Nazism, and Palestinian experiences to the Holocaust.
The PA accusing Israel of Nazi-like behavior is one aspect of its vicious Antisemitism. The IHRA’s (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) working definition of Antisemitism includes this libelous comparison under the category of Antisemitism:
“Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.”
The IHRA definition has been adopted by 34 countries, the European Union, the Secretaries-General of the United Nations and the Organization of American States, the Council of Europe, and many other political and organizational structures.
The Palestinian Authority’s abusing the memory of the Holocaust for libelous purposes, is just one example among many, including its paying salaries to terrorists, glorifying terrorist murderers of civilians, and encouraging children to die as Martyrs, that reconfirms that the Palestinian Authority embraces abhorrent values placing it in a class all by itself.
The following are some of the examples of PA and Fatah abusing the memory of the Holocaust for political purposes from 2022.
Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub: “We are conveying a message to the world: The time has come to confront this fascist racist occupation. The time has come to end the expressions of ethnic cleansing, which our people is dealing with in Jerusalem and all of Palestine… The international legitimacy is one, and it must be implemented against the ugly face of Nazism, which is this Zionism and this racist fascist occupation...
As long as this occupation is continuing its fascism it will not enjoy and will not live in security…
The time has come for the new Nazis who are working to eliminate the Palestinian people to leave or to be confronted.”

Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub: “The Israelis are looking for words I said, and it is said that I said of the occupation that they are new Nazis (his statements at Palestine Marathon opening ceremony on March 18, 2022 -Ed.) – and if not, then what are you? Tell us, explain to us.”

Fatah Spokesperson in Gaza Iyad Nasser: “The occupation with its means of oppression and its daily acts of killing against our people – [the acts] emphasize the occupier’s Nazism and the way in which it is continuing to use all means of killing against our people.”

“The PLO Human Rights and Civil Society Department: This recurring and incessant crime in various areas of the occupied territories only proves the aggressive and Nazi nature of this occupation, whose origin is in the Zionist racism that is based on hating the other and allowing their killing only for the sake of killing and [satiating their] blood thirst.”

Shari'ah Judge Nasser Al-Qirem: “When they [the Jews] began the occupation of Palestine from 1948 they worked vigorously to commit massacres of our people through the Nazi crime gangs – Stern (i.e., Lechi), Haganah, and Palmach (i.e., Jewish defense forces in the pre-state period). All of these gangs that this state is based on are responsible for all the wars, corruption, and spread of corruption on the face of the earth.”

Director of the PA-funded Prisoners’ Club in Tubas Kamal Bani Oudeh: “The Nazi [Israeli prison] management is attempting to negate the prisoners’ achievements that they have made over many years, and they went on strike for months to reach these achievements.”

“We stand against an ultra-fascist ethnic cleansing state, if I can use the expression, because in its crimes it surpasses German Nazism. This is a state that is led by savage highway robbers who are only connected to humanity in their [external] appearance. They are more similar to cannibalistic prehistoric man”

“For 74 years the various governments of Israel have committed ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people…
With its true components – as colonialism whose supporting pillar is ethnic cleansing and reenacting the German Nazi Holocaust in a new way against the Palestinians” …

Fatah Revolutionary Council member Iyad Nasser: “Throughout the entire history of the Palestinian struggle, and especially in the way in which the occupation and the occupation’s prisons are treating our heroic prisoners, we have clearly discerned that these sentences express only the Nazism of this occupier.”

Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub: “Today this fascist [Israeli] government, which is the new Nazis, is the living and recognizable model of the fascist and Nazi thinking.”

“The criminal coalition government led by colonialist Zionist [Israeli Prime Minister Naftali] Bennett is determined to continue its option, the option of massacre, holocaust, and death, without taking into consideration the results. This is because it is a rogue, fabricated, illegal, and illegitimate state…
It established its system, its security, political, legal, cultural, and religious foundations, and its myths and fables in order to achieve the goal that was imposed on it, and it instilled a false narrative in the general consciousness of the Khazar Jews, and simultaneously raped Judaism in order to provide its narrative with a religious nature. This is because it has no historical basis or authority that provides it with sovereignty over the Palestinian land, as all the colonialists who acceded to the Zionist movement’s intimidation are stateless and a mix of ethnic groups from the various states of the world. The supporting pillar that unites them is carrying out the western colonialist conspiracy that the US is leading, and carrying out the Hitleresque holocaust anew against the Palestinian Arab people and the peoples of the Arab world.”
