Holocaust denial and distortion
Libel: Israel imitates Nazi crimes
Holocaust denial and distortion
Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse, have all been components of Palestinian Authority ideology. Palestinians from both Fatah and Hamas have accused Israel of burning Palestinians in ovens, and alternatively have accused Zionists of committing the Holocaust against Jews for political, financial or social gain. A PA TV children’s broadcast taught that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens, and at an exhibit in Gaza children put dolls, representing Palestinian children, in a model oven adorned with a Star of David and a swastika. A PA daily wrote: "The exhibit includes a large oven and inside it small [Palestinian] children are being burned; the picture speaks for itself,” as if the exhibit was documenting something true. [Al-Ayyam, March 20, 2008] The event was sponsored by the Palestinian “National Committee for Defense of Children from the Holocaust.”

A senior Palestinian academic taught adults on PA TV: “There was no Dachau, no Auschwitz; these were disinfecting sites.” A Hamas TV documentary explained that it was Jewish leaders who planned the Holocaust, in order to eliminate Jews who were "disabled and handicapped”.

A crossword puzzle clue in the official PA daily identified “Yad Vashem” (Israel’s Holocaust memorial) as a “Center for the Holocaust and Lies.” The same PA daily has published many articles denying the Holocaust, including one that termed the Holocaust a “hen laying golden eggs.”

Schoolbooks produced by the Palestinian Ministry of Education teach the history of World War II in great detail except for the history of the Holocaust, which is totally ignored. One history book goes so far as to teach that Nazism was a racist ideology and that there were trials of Nazi war criminals, but it leaves out that Jews were the target of the racism, and the crimes for which the Nazis were on trial.

Palestinian education erases the actual Holocaust from history and usurps the word “Holocaust” or its own wide range of malicious libels.
This video depicts a PA TV children’s play teaching that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens.
"They [Israel] are the ones who did the Holocaust,
their knife cuts to the length and the width of our flesh...
They opened ovens for us, to bake human beings.
They destroyed the villages and burnt the cities.
And when an oven stops burning, they light a hundred [more] ovens.
Their hands are covered with the blood of our children."
[PA TV (Fatah), March 25, 2004]

In addition, admiration of Hitler continues to be a component of the PA world. A PA funded children’s publication published an essay written by a teenage girl admiring Hitler, who told the Palestinian girl in her dream: "I killed them [the Jews] so you would all know
that they are a nation which spreads destruction all over the world." This essay published in 2011, yet in spite of broad international condemnation following PMW’s exposure, it was not removed from the Palestinian educational website Zayzafuna, when we last checked in Oct. 2013.

Since 2012, there have been a number of statements by the PA or PLO officials acknowledging the Holocaust. This has not yet been incorporated into PA formal education.

     “Fatah Revolutionary Council member and Director of the [PA] Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall Ziad Abu Ein said that the issue of liberating Palestine was in everyone’s interests… These statements were made during a political forum organized by the [Separation] Fence and Settlement Resistance Authority, together with the Political and [National] Advisory Commission and the Arab American University in Jenin… Abu Ein emphasized that defeat does not figure in the annals of the Palestinian people, which has been resisting the occupation for decades, and which does not and will not rest until not a single Zionist is left in the land of Palestine… He added that the young generation was the generation of liberation and the generation of a bright future, which will herald approaching victory to Palestine, [noting] that it had much knowledge and experience, and had surprised everyone during the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005). In response to the students’ questions, he emphasized that rifts [between factions] is a crime and disgrace to all that encourage them, and that they serve no one but the occupation. He added that we must unite and increase our efforts to resist this oppressive Nazi occupation, which is stealing our land and spilling our blood.”
Fatah official: Israelis are “neo-Nazis” 
Source: beIN Sports news network, Nov. 24, 2014
The beIN Sports news network interviewed Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and Head of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs Jibril Rajoub on the Israeli army raid on the headquarters of the Palestinian Football Association
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and Head of the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs Jibril Rajoub: “It may be that they wanted to make a point, because today… Even though the clerks asked them [what they wanted] and told them this was FIFA [headquarters], they cursed FIFA and used foul language – but this is how the 21st century neo-Nazis behave. Unfortunately for them, and fortunately for us, everything was recorded on camera, in sound and image, and there is no chance they will avoid punishment this time.”

Note: An Israeli army spokesperson explained that Palestinians who had been arrested outside the building in which the Palestinian Football Association is located claimed their personal papers were inside the office. The Israeli soldiers entered in order to retrieve the papers, and the search was not directed at the Palestinian Football Association.(http://sports.walla.co.il/item/2805124)
Fatah official calls Netanyahu “Fuhrer” and accuses other Israeli politicians of being worse than Goebbels 
Source: Al-Quds website, Nov. 5, 2014
     “Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee Jibril Rajoub accused Benjamin Netanyahu’s extremist right-wing Israeli government of repeating the acts of the Third Reich – the name the Nazi party gave to Germany under Hitler’s regime… Rajoub described the Israeli Prime Minister as a ‘Fuhrer’ leading a group of corrupt extremists, the likes of [Foreign Minister Avigdor] Liberman and [Minister of the Economy] Naftali Bennett, who have outdone Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, in their lies and racist Nazi acts…
Rajoub condemned the racist statements made by Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman against President Abbas for sending a telegram of condolence to the family of Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, and called on him [Liberman] to go back to his original homeland. Rajoub added: ‘If the Israelis had any self-respect, they wouldn’t have chosen a ‘thug and nightclub security guard’ to serve as their foreign minister.’”

Note: Mutaz Hijazi – Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner who attempted to assassinate Rabbi Yehuda Glick, a prominent activist working to assure rights for Jews to visit and pray on the Temple Mount, on Oct. 29, 2014. The assassination attempt took place following a conference on establishing times and places for Jews to pray on the Temple Mount. Glick was seriously wounded in the attack; Hijazi was killed soon afterwards when he opened fire on an Israeli police force that was attempting to arrest him.
The Holocaust “implanted racism” in Jews and gave them the urge to “reenact the Holocaust” against Palestinians 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 23, 2014
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for the official PA daily:
     “Germany played a central role in the birth of the State of Israel – a role exemplified in the following ways: First, the Nazi Holocaust, which Hitler and his regime perpetrated against the Jews in Germany, beginning with their rise to power in 1933, and in every place in Europe his armies conquered in World War II, between 1939 and 1945. This led to a manifold increase in Jewish emigration to Palestine, organized by the Zionist movement and supported by the countries of Western Europe, Britain in particular. Second, the German Holocaust created and implanted racism, vengefulness and the [urge to] reenact the Holocaust against the Arab Palestinian gentiles in the Zionist Jews’ [collective] consciousness and subconscious… The German leadership must take account of the huge dangers its historic complex from the Holocaust of the Jews is bringing upon the Palestinian people, as well as of the dangers threatening regional and world peace. For in every war Israel wages against the Palestinians, it perpetrates a new Holocaust against children, women and elderly, spreading destruction in the various spheres of life – as occurred during ‘Protective Edge’ war (i.e., refers to when Hamas was firing thousands of rockets at Israel and Israel responded with Operation Protective Edge, which aimed at destroying Hamas' terror infrastructure and ability to launch rockets at Israel.) against the Gaza Strip.”
PA TV guest says Israel was worse than Hitler during the Gaza War

Official PA TV program The Root of the Story interviewed a resident of Shuja’iyya.
Resident (old man): “[Not even] Hitler did to Israel what Israel did to us.”

Note: Shuja’iyya is a neighborhood in Gaza City. There was a heavy battle there between Israeli army and Hamas during the 2014 Gaza war, and many Palestinians were killed. International doctors and journalists who were there have referred to it as a massacre. Israel has defended its actions because Hamas was launching rockets from this area.
