Jews are “human waste,” Europe and the US will do anything to keep them in Israel, says Palestinian political commentator

The explicit US support for Israel against Hamas and other terror organizations in the current terror war, which was launched by Hamas with its massacre of Israelis on October 7, prompted a particularly foul antisemitic response from a “political commentator” on official PA TV.


Categorizing Jews as “human waste,” Palestinian political commentator Kamal Zakarneh explained the American support and European “solidarity” with Israel as nothing more than an expression of these states’ fear that the Jews will flee Israel and return to them. He concluded that having gotten “rid of the Jews” – the “human waste” – the US and Europe will “do anything” to keep them in “Palestine”: 

Palestinian political commentator Kamal Zakarneh: “They [Europe and America] are demonstrating a lot of solidarity with the Israeli occupation. I tell you there is something hidden here, and it is that they are not expressing these positions out of love for ‘Israel’ in quotations, but rather they – Europe and America – succeeded in getting rid of the Jews, whom they themselves view as human waste, and they threw them out into Palestine. They created a place for them far away from them, far away from Europe. They don’t want reverse migration now and their [the Jews’] return to Europe again. They, Europe and America, are prepared to provide all the aid they can… to strengthen the occupation and leave the Jews where they are. [US President Joe] Biden said this during the events in Israel: ‘If there were not an Israel, we’d have to invent one.’ He would have invented it to absorb the human waste.

Such antisemitic statements are not at all new in the PA. Palestinian Media Watch exposed last week that the PA instructed all mosque preachers to teach worshippers that the extermination of Jews is an Islamic imperative.


Earlier this year, PMW exposed that PA Chairman Abbas’ advisor on religious affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, taught Palestinians that Jews are Satan in human form: 

Abbas’ Advisor on Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “A group from among the People of the Book (i.e., Jews) wants to deceive you… and turn you back from your religion so that you will be like them. This goes back to the initial point of the conflict, the conflict between good and evil...They [Jews] have left the path of humanity and followed Satanity. Satanity is an exit from humanity … Satan does not have to be in the form of a demon, hidden, he can also bein your form, but he is Satan. In the form of man, but he is Satan. And they (i.e., Satan-Jews) are still fighting us until they turn us back from our religion.”

Hamas war on Israel October 2023 - At least 1,200 Israelis, including over 1,000 civilians, were murdered and over 4,800 wounded, in addition to approximately 244 who were abducted into the Gaza Strip (including 110 later released or liberated and at least 26 later killed), in a Hamas terror war that began when approximately 3,000 Hamas terrorists broke through Israel's security fence at the Gaza Strip border and launched a surprise attack, taking control of several Israeli towns and attacking a music festival on the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which fell on the Sabbath, Oct. 7, 2023. During the massacre the terrorists tortured, raped, shot, beheaded, and burned their victims alive, murdering entire families and leaving at least 21 children without parents. Hamas terrorists also fired at least 5,000 rockets at Israeli population centers. In response, Israel launched Operation Iron Swords to counter the Hamas terror threat. Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon joined Hamas' terror war starting from the following day, attacking Israel from the north. Occasional rocket launches and shootings continued from Lebanon throughout the war. A ceasefire and prisoner exchange deal began on Nov. 24, 2023, in which Israel agreed to release 150 terrorist prisoners, pause drone surveillance in the Gaza Strip, and allow movement between the northern and southern Gaza Strip, in return for 50 Israeli female and child hostages held by Hamas. The deal was subsequently extended with additional releases, until Hamas violated the agreement and resumed attacking on Dec. 1, 2023
