Kill a Jew – Go to Heaven

Jerusalem, Israel, Jan. 25 (UPI) – A top Israeli official says the Palestinian Authority, even under new President Mahmoud Abbas, is promoting genocide against Jews.
Natan Sharansky, Israel’s Diaspora Affairs minister, marked the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz Tuesday with a presentation entitled “Kill a Jew – Go to Heaven” compiled by Palestinian Media Watch, an Israel-based organization that monitors incitement in Palestinian society, the Jerusalem Post reported.
The presentation accuses the Palestinian media of dehumanizing Jews similar to ways the Nazis did and says an essential message broadcast in Islamic sermons, academic discourse and even children’s shows is “the Jews are an evil force, and it’s inherent to the Jews, and therefore they have to be killed.”
The presentation’s co-author Itamar Marcus says Abbas asked the head of the Palestinian Broadcasting Authority to prevent the broadcast of inciting material Jan. 9, but anti-Semitic rhetoric has remained unabated.
He pointed to a Jan. 14 sermon in which an imam said, “The days of the pilgrimage to Mecca remind the Muslim of the connection to his history and remind him of his past glory and the lowliness of the Jews, who today rule the world.”
