“The more despicable a thing is, it is an invention of the Jewish mind” 

Nan Jacques Zilberdik  |

“The more despicable a thing is, it is an invention of the Jewish mind.” 

Whereas this sounds like

Nazi Germany hate-speech from the 1930s or 1940s, this antisemitic statement was made in 2022 just a few weeks ago by official PA TV’s “Israeli affairs expert,” Fayez Abbas: 

Official PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas: “We know that the Jewish mind always invents things. The more despicable a thing is, it is an invention of the Jewish mind.”

Fond of Nazi imagery to describe Israelis and Jews, Fayez Abbas has repeatedly compared Israeli leaders to Nazi leaders, proclaiming recently “I think most of the Israeli leaders are prized students of Goebbles”: 

Fayez Abbas: “Israel has declared religious war against Islam and Christianity at the same time... A religious war and Israeli apartheid... This policy that the Jew is the ‘Aryan,’ as happened in Germany- It is the same policy, the same ideological thought. I think most of the Israeli leaders are prized students of Goebbels, the minister of propaganda in the period of Nazi Germany.”

Fayez Abbas: “Look at the picture [of Netanyahu], how his face looks. He is raising his hand like this. He should have done it a bit like this, the Nazi salute, of Hitler. It is similar to it, just a little different. Because he is careful in these matters, he left [his hands] like this… Goebbels was the propaganda minister in the period of Nazi Germany, and apparently Netanyahu read Goebbels’ books and he is Goebbels’ outstanding student.”
