Israel is a colonialist implant
Israel is a colonialist implant
The PA created an odious alternative history to denigrate the rebirth of the State of Israel and deny Israel’s right to exist. Since Jews, they say, never had a history in the Land of Israel and therefore never would have started the Zionist movement on their own, an imaginative story had to be created to explain Jewish renaissance in Israel. Accordingly, they teach that Jews were so evil in every country they inhabited for thousands of years that the nations of the world were forced to persecute and often expel them – as acts of self-defense. According to the PA libel, the repeated persecutions and expulsions of Jews are proof that the world agrees about the evil nature of Jews. Britain and Europe were suffering last century from their Jews in their countries, and therefore created Zionism in order to be rid of their Jewish “burden.” The Land of Israel was chosen by the Europeans, in this scenario, as the place to send the Jews in order to control and steal the “natural resources” of the Middle East. This is what the PA is referring to in its schoolbooks and official media when they refer to Israel as an imperialist colonial implant.

This article is an early expression of this ideology in the official PA daily in 1998:
“The difference between Hitler and [British Foreign Minister] Balfour was simple: the former [Hitler] did not have colonies to send the Jews so he destroyed them, whereas Balfour… [turned] Palestine into his colony and sent the Jews. Balfour is Hitler with colonies, while Hitler is Balfour without colonies. They both wanted to get rid of the Jews… Zionism was crucial to the defense of the West’s interests in the region, [by] ridding Europe of the burden of its Jews.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 6, 1998]

This video is a recent expression of this PA ideology, on PA TV:
“Europe, led by Britain, founded Israel... We, as Arabs, as negotiators, as Palestinians when we meet with Europeans [should say]: 'You created and implanted a thieving entity upon Palestinian land...' As they implanted [Jews here] they got rid of [Jews there] and I do not wish to elaborate on this. The Jews in the time of Herzl caused European societies to lose sleep. They wanted to be rid of them, and implanted them in Palestine."

Qalqilya governor: Balfour Declaration is a "crime against Palestinians" that "paved the way for the theft of their land"

Headline: "Conference on summary executions and persecuting their perpetrators in the International Criminal Court"
      "During the conference organized by the Al-Quds Open University, the Authority for Political and National Guidance, and the Fatah Movement, titled The Summary Executions and Persecuting their Perpetrators in the International Criminal Court… [Qalqilya] District Governor [Rafe' Rawajbeh] noted that the crime of [the Israeli] occupation stretches from 1948 to the present, and emphasized that the occupation is a crime and that the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) is a crime against the Palestinians as it paved the way for the theft of their land."

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.
US and Europe "exported" the "Jewish terror to Palestine," Israel is "the ugliest form of terror" 
Source: Facebook page of Adnan Al-Damiri, the official spokesman of the PA Security Forces, Mar. 22, 2016
Text posted by PA Security Forces Spokesman Adnan Al-Damiri on his Facebook page on March 22, 2016, following the March 22, 2016 terror attacks in Brussels that killed at least 31 and injured hundreds: "While we condemn and denounce terrorist acts everywhere in the world, we Arabs are the ones who have been most severely burned by the fire of terror, which has been created and exported by the US and Europe since the Arab Jihad fighters in Afghanistan, and before that by exporting the Jewish terror to Palestine, supporting it and justifying it. Today, Europe is being burnt by its [the terror's] fire in its airports and squares. I do not gloat but feel pain over every innocent soul that was killed, but those who prepare the poison will taste it themselves, and today Europe is having a taste of what it prepared with its own hands. Unless you fight terror everywhere, first and foremost in Palestine, since the [Israeli] occupation is the ugliest form of terror, as well as in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Jordan - you will be burnt by its fire, and terror has no religion."

PA daily op-ed: “Colonialist” Israel was created to stop Arab countries from developing and to fragment them

Headline: “Problems of the Arab democracy”

Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily, in which he describes 10 obstacles that the development of democracy in Arab countries faces. Following is one of them:

    “The colonialist state of Israel which expels [the local inhabitants] and settles [in their place] was created at the heart of the Arab world on the ruins of the Palestinian people’s Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel). This state is a time bomb exploding incessantly in colonial wars. The purpose of its creation was to consume the Arab peoples’ potential to develop, to thwart and neutralize every option of development in every country of the Arab world, to damage the project of complete liberation from subordination to colonialism in its old and new forms, to prevent the pan-Arab revival project from achieving its goals – unity, freedom, justice, and sustainable development – and to act to deepen the process of fragmentation in Arab countries.”

PA TV: Balfour Declaration was Europe's "solution to get rid of them (the Jews)"

"Faced with the Jews' schemes, Europe could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government. In 1290, King Edward I issued a decree banishing the Jews [from England]. Following him were France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Italy. The European nations felt that they had suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews. Later the Jews obtained the Balfour Declaration, and Europe saw it as an ideal solution to get rid of them."

Israel was “unnaturally” established by colonialism, “as an idea to get rid of the European Jewish problem” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 8, 2015
Op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, columnist for official PA daily
     “The occupation state, ‘Israel,’ which was established outside the natural historical framework of the formation of countries in this civilized part of the world, and came into the world following illegal competitive relations between the worldwide promoters of colonialism, and as an idea to get rid of the European Jewish problem, after all the attention the world has lavished on it [Israel], whether willingly or unwillingly, today pulls out the sword of enmity and rebellion against international law. The same law that has guaranteed it since its establishment was announced in the partition resolution in 1947 (the UN partition plan of 1947, which called for the creation of a Jewish state and an Arab state in the former British Mandate for Palestine, and which was rejected by the Palestinians –Ed.) , and it was given the birth certificate of a state, under certain conditions, which is located within the natural and historical borders of Palestine, in other words, what we call the fourth of June borders. This was after it went beyond the interpretations of the partition resolution and forcefully took over parts of the territories that the partition resolution called ‘the Arab state’ at the time! It is possible that the rebellion and non-compliance is a natural matter among most of those who were born outside the legal framework of regulations, values, and laws, and Israel has left compliance with international laws regarding human rights outside of its conduct regarding the Palestinian people, which has the natural and historical right to Palestine, all of Palestine.”

He expressed appreciation of the fact that the president [Abbas] and prime minister [Hamdallah] are making sure they receive all of the Martyrs’ bodies [from Israel] and bring them to burial with state funerals befitting them and their sacrifices… The government emphasized that even though 98 years have passed since the ominous Balfour Declaration, our people is still paying a heavy price with its land, its children’s blood, and its daily suffering, and the international community still stands by helplessly in the face of the historic injustice which has caused many massacres and crimes carried out by the Zionist terror gangs, which has led to our people being uprooted from their homeland.”

Headline: “The two causes contradict each other”
       “What researchers trying to compare the two causes could not identify was that the Palestinian issue was a tangible issue, on the ground and in history, with real presence in reality. Likewise, its cause is essentially different from the Jewish issue, which was actually a phantom from the European point of view and was created by them [the Europeans].
In addition, all European leaders sought to create a cheap, low-cost mechanism that would ensure the fragmentation of the Arab region in order to steal the resources of the peoples of the Arab nation. Therefore, they used the Zionist colonialist entity and collaborated with it, in accordance with developments in the international capitalist camp, and in a manner that would serve the interests of Europe and the US… Were it not for Europe’s [support] since Napoleon’s call in 1978, King Wilhelm II (i.e., last German Emperor and King of Prussia, ruled from 1888 to 1918. –Ed.) in the second half of the 19th century, Britain’s adoption of the Zionist movement since the mandate over Palestine and the issuing of the Balfour promise (i.e., Declaration) in November 1917 and the subsequent American patronage and support, after it [the US] became the center of decisions and the leader of the Western camp following World War II, the Hebrew state would not have managed to exist and endure.”

PA daily op-ed: Israel founded on colonialism, established to be a “base” for the US

Excerpt of article by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for the official PA daily:
      “As is known to the whole world, the countries of the capitalist West invented, together with the leaders of the Zionist movement, the idea of ‘the Promised Land,’ and afterward they invented the deceitful Jewish slogan ‘a land without a people for a people without a land,’ in order to achieve the goal of global Zionism. The two ideas – the idea of ‘the Promised Land,’ and the deceitful colonialist idea – were the main deceptive factor, meant to remove the European Jews from their nations and place them in Palestine, in order to establish the Israeli colonialist state as a front base of the capitalist West, and particularly of the US.”

     "Israel spreads the danger posed by ISIS on one hand, and the Iranian danger on the other hand, in order to sneak into the bedrooms of the Arab regimes, as if it has no aspirations [to rule] from the Nile to the Euphrates. This Arab entrapment by Israel reminds us of the correspondence of the Fatimids in Egypt with the Crusaders in order to unite against Nur Al-Din Zangi (the Selijuq ruler who united the Syrian principalities and northern Iraq into one large Muslim country –Ed.), and the engagements of the Pope with the Assassin movement later [in history] in order to confront Saladin, in addition to many rulers of his time betraying their homelands, [thus] facilitating the Mongol invasion… We can [only] say that the results of the Mongolian invasion and the Crusades, which nobody stood against except for the Egyptian army, paved the way for the Safavid state in Iran and Iraq, the spread of the Turks in the Western world, and the continuation of French and British colonialism, which led to the birth of Israel.”

Balfour Declaration was “racist, hateful, and atrocious” and a right that Jews did not deserve

Fatah-run Awdah TV broadcast the documentary A Homeland in the Memory of Generations about the Palestinian struggle from the Balfour Declaration until war in Gaza, and the strong connection between Morocco and Jerusalem. The film was produced by Palestine International Institute and Dr. Elias Al-Amari from Morocco, and not by Awdah TV. PA Parliament (Legislative Council) member from Fatah Ashraf Jum’ais is mentioned in the credits at the end as the film’s supervisor.
Film narrator: “This is the longest and greatest tragedy in history, and the most racist, hateful, and atrocious scene was when Britain granted the Jews a national homeland in Palestine in the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration).”
PA Parliament member from Fatah Ashraf Jum’a: “The occupation of Palestine by Britain was a preparatory step toward the establishment of a national home for Jews in Palestine. Britain issued the ominous Balfour Promise in 1917, and with this decision a right was given to an entity not deserving it – the Zionist entity - by one not its [the land’s] owner – Britain.”

In addition, the leaders of the Nazi and Fascist states conspired to make the Jews immigrate to Israel, the establishment of which was supported by more than one leader and one European state, to serve the colonialist ambitions of these states in the Arab world.
Likewise, the Zionist movement wanted to achieve a series of goals: First, to take advantage and use this [the Holocaust] to blackmail the European states financially and politically to make them support the Zionist colonialist project. Second, to bully the Jews to immigrate to the Israeli ethnic cleansing state, which was in a preparatory stages of establishment.
