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."
[Fathi Buzia, PA political commentator, PATV, June 17, 2009]
Op-ed: Western colonialism tried to "erase the Palestinian identity, history, and existence" and established Israel "to serve the goals of the capitalist West at the expense of the Jews, who were misled in the name of religion"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 8, 2019
Excerpt of op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

   "Western colonialism in general, and British colonialism in particular – in cooperation with the Zionist movement, and later with its physical base, the colonialist State of Israel – attempted during the 30 years of the Mandate, from 1917 to 1948, to change the social, demographic, economic, and legal systems on the ground in order to erase the Palestinian identity, history, and existence, and to establish the rogue state [Israel]. This was in order to serve the goals of the capitalist West at the expense of the Jews, who were misled in the name of religion, and in the name of slogans preparing the groundwork for negating the other – such as 'a land without a people for a people without a land,' 'the promised land,' and 'your land, Israel, from the Nile [River] to the Euphrates [River].' Simultaneously, hundreds of thousands of Jewish, Zionist, and other immigrants, some of whom were escaping – to anywhere – from the tragedy and hell of European fascism and Nazism, were brought [to Palestine]… They established the colonialist State of Israel."

Op-ed in official PA daily says Jesus is a symbol of a national struggle against those who falsified the Old Testament, and which have not “ceased committing their crimes to this very day”
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 25, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

“Jesus, peace be upon him, was the first symbol of a national struggle for liberation and escape from the claws of those who pretend to belong to Judaism, who falsified the Old Testament and its intentions, fought their prophets, and did an injustice to the Jews, Christians, and others in Jesus’ times. They have not ceased committing their crimes to this very day, after Judaism was hijacked by the Zionist movement that imposed its colonialist project on it. This was with unconditional agreement and support from the colonialist West in order to achieve its colonialist goals.”
Palestinian envoy in Uruguay: Balfour Declaration was “ominous,” Israel was established “while bloody massacres were being committed by the Zionist gangs,” promotes “use of all means of struggle”

      "The embassy of the State of Palestine in Uruguay – in coordination with the union of worker organizations and the human rights department – marked International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People in the main hall of the Association of Professional Organizations and [with] the participation of Ambassador of the State of Palestine Walid Abd Al-Rahim… Ambassador Abd Al-Rahim reviewed the history of the Palestinian struggle since the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) and the unjust resolution to divide Palestine (i.e., referring to the UN Partition Plan for Palestine; see note below), erase the name Palestine, and recognize the state that was established while bloody massacres were being committed by the Zionist gangs in order to expel the members of our people and bring the Zionist immigrants from abroad.
The Palestinian ambassador focused on the will to struggle of the members of our people and on the use of all means of struggle (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror)‎ in order to restore our people’s legal rights, return the Palestinian cause to the UN, and to bring about the states of the world's recognition of the independent Palestinian state."

PA daily op-ed to Jewish Israelis: “You are victims of a plan of fraud” by the “colonial powers” since Balfour “made a promise to your foreign forefathers who have no right to the land of our homeland Palestine”

     "With the passing of 100 years since the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), the message must be conveyed to the Jewish Israelis, and particularly those among them who were and still are victims of systematic fraud. We say to them with full sincerity: You are victims of a plan of fraud by the greatest colonial powers in the world, since British Foreign Secretary [Arthur] Balfour made a promise to your foreign forefathers who have no right to the land of our homeland Palestine, and until [US President Donald] Trump, who promised you to destroy our spirit, our culture, and our identity when he realized his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of your state… Jewish Israelis, what you need to know is that Great Britain scorned your human value when it used your forefathers as a colonial pawn in the region. That is what Balfour did, who whispered to you unprecedented hatred and prevented you from seeking refuge in Britain during the period when you fled from the rest of Europe. All Balfour did was to export your problem to our land, and colonialist Britain did indeed succeed in using you. Today, Donald Trump is using you so that he will be able to execute his colonialist agenda."

PLO official: “Jews… knew only to make money, trade, weave plots, corruption… The European nations and Russia were sick of them”

Official PA TV program
Palestine This Morning, on the Balfour Declaration

Palestinian National Council member Najib Al-Qaddumi: "Indeed, this is an ominous day, and it is considered a day of mourning for us because the so-called 'State of Israel' was established by way of this promise. The Israeli entity was established. The Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) was the cornerstone for the establishment of this renegade state. However there is no choice but to return to the background behind the publication of this promise by then British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour. We will return to the situation of the Jews in Europe and Russia, when they lived in a closed society and knew only to make money, trade, weave plots, corruption, and such. Even the European nations and Russia were sick of them and longed for when they would leave their country."

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 3, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: "The 101st anniversary of the ominous [Balfour] Promise"

"One-hundred-and-one years have passed since the disaster, the promise of cursed British Foreign Secretary James Arthur Balfour (i.e., the Balfour Declaration), which was agreed upon by the heads of the Western wealth on the eve of its publication on Nov. 2, 1917, and particularly the US and Britain. The decision determined that 'a national homeland would be established for the Jews in historical Palestine, while the other minorities would receive civil and religious rights,' and hundreds of thousands of Jews – persecuted, oppressed, and denied political, cultural, and religious rights among the peoples of the capitalist West – were pressed to serve as pawns of the colonialist capitalism in the Arab homeland. This was in order to tear it apart, crush it, and steal its resources at the expense of the pan-national Arab revival project.

The West, represented at first by the British Mandate State, did not make do with providing the human, logistic, financial, economic, and legal needs in order to establish a 'national' homeland 'for the Jews,' but also opened wide the way for them to rule over a geographical area larger than the historical land of Palestine. This was despite [the fact that] the Jews didn’t need a homeland, but rather needed to be liberated from the inhuman, tyrannical, and oppressive laws and acts of the states and peoples with which they were nationally affiliated, and among whom they had lived throughout history and whose culture and language they had absorbed.
However, the leaders of the colonialist states and their political, economic, and financial elites wanted this and decided on the establishment of a 'national homeland'...

PA daily: Jews "exploited" the "ominous" Balfour Declaration in order to establish Israel "on the land of others"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 2, 2018
      "Today, Friday, Nov. 2 [2018], is the 101st anniversary of the publication of the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), in whose framework Britain granted the Jews the right to establish a national homeland in Palestine, relying on the false statement 'a land without a people for a people without a land.' …The Jews succeeded in exploiting the piece of paper that was published by [then British Foreign Secretary] Arthur Balfour, who was known for his closeness to the Zionist movement, and afterwards the mandate's document and the decision of the [UN] General Assembly in 1947, which determined the partition of Palestine, in order to realize their dream to establish Israel on May 15, 1948. This entity achieved membership in the UN due to the pressure of the global powers, and Israel became the first state in the history of the global political system that was established on the land of others. It also received international aid that enabled it to patronize the region, to spread out, to swallow more Palestinian and Arab territories, and to act violently against the Palestinians who remained on their land, without mercy.
The Balfour Declaration granted a homeland to the Jews despite them not being residents of Palestine..."

“[Europe] was sick of the behavior of the Jews and planned to get rid of them” - PA Minister of Education posts video explaining Balfour Declaration
Source: Facebook page of PA Minister of Education Sabri Saidam, Nov. 2, 2018

Posted text:
"101 years since the ominous promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration), and soon a year since the new ominous promise (i.e., US President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem and promise to transfer the US embassy to it). Here is a simple explanation of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration) for its anniversary, which is today [Nov. 2, 2018]"

Narrator: "The nightmare was created by Britain and was realized on the land of Palestine. Britain gave a right which it did not have to one not entitled to it: [A right] to our land in the form of a state, which is now known as 'Israel' …
It was said that the old continent [Europe] was sick of the behavior of the Jews at the time, and therefore it planned to get rid of them. It was also said that Israel’s establishment would guarantee the division of the region for the West, and give it a foothold in the Arab homeland, which was afterwards called 'The Middle East'…
British Foreign Secretary at the time Arthur James Balfour stabbed a dagger into the soft belly of Palestine. He took upon himself a promise from one without ownership to one not entitled, as if he was the owner of the land and not a colonialist…
This is just a drop in the sea of Britain's crimes against our people, whose existence it has insisted on denying despite its Phoenician and Canaanite roots."

Song “Listen Balfour, Listen” performed by Qassem Al-Najjar and Shadi Al-Burini

Lyrics: “O Balfour, years have gone
Generations have gone until now
You have gone and others have gone, yet this is the land of Palestine
Regardless of the time that passes, we will erase the memory of this [Balfour] Promise
Listen Balfour, listen
The right of my land will yet return
We bow only to Allah
We are the Palestinians…
We are your owners, Palestine
And we are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites
We have identity
Palestine’s history is great, Jerusalem is ours and no one else’s
Regardless of your efforts to falsify, this land is Palestinian…
O British man, listen up
You must apologize to us
This homeland is ours, and not the Zionists’
You deprived my precious homeland
You stole the right to my land and gave it to the Zionist
This is an international crime
Balfour [of] the ominous promise committed a crime against my oppressed people
We will not be silent from this day forward, we will not forget the cause"

Article in official PA daily claims Israeli prisons are “financial companies whose goal is to impoverish the prisoners,” which constitute “part of the occupation's colonialist economic project” and target Palestinian prisoners
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 11, 2018
Headline: "The occupation arrested 484 civilians in the month of August"

"The prisoner and human rights institutions noted as part of a fact sheet they published yesterday [Sept. 10, 2018] that… the total of what the PA pays for the prisoners’ purchases from the canteens in the prisons has reached approximately 2.7 million [Israeli] shekels per month, in other words, 400 shekels for each Palestinian prisoner. Most of the families are also forced to put additional sums into the accounts of their children in the prisons to fund their daily needs due to the terrible food and drink that the Israeli Prison Services provides them, in addition to the purchase of clothes, shoes, cigarettes, electrical appliances, and the like.
These large sums constitute an ongoing financial burden on the prisoners' families and the PA due to the high prices of the products in the canteens, which cost up to three or four times their original price outside the prison. This is because the occupation state has turned the prisons into financial companies whose goal is to impoverish the prisoners and their families, and also the institutions that take care of their affairs and provide them with sums evaluated at tens of millions of shekels per month.
The prisons’ economy constitutes part of the occupation's colonialist economic project, due to the repercussions it causes to the male and female prisoners in particular, and to Palestinian society as a whole (Palestinian and Israeli prisoners pay the same prices according to Addameer; see note below -Ed.). This is as the occupation is attempting to create a rift between the prisoners and the rest of Palestinian society by turning the prisoners into a financial burden for which the local society has to bear responsibility."

     "[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman Sheikh Muhammad Hussein has forbidden easing the transfer of ownership of Jerusalem and the land of Palestine to enemies.
The mufti stated yesterday [April 12, 2018]: 'Palestine, that includes within it Jerusalem, is waqf (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) land [and] it is forbidden by Shari’ah law to relinquish it or ease the transfer of ownership of it to enemies, because it is part of the Islamic public property. Granting ownership over Islamic territory or part of it to enemies is invalid and constitutes treason.'
He added: 'Whoever sells his land to his enemies or takes compensation for it sins, as in doing so he aids in the removal of Muslims from their homes. Almighty Allah connected those who remove Muslims from their homes and those who aid in doing so to those who fight against Muslims because of their religion.' He [the Mufti] also emphasized that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Palestine, and that the American declaration regarding Jerusalem and considering it the occupation's capital is an invalid and illegitimate decision, as one who has no ownership cannot transfer something that belongs to someone else."
