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.

Libel: Israel imitates Nazi crimes

Op-ed in PA daily implicitly compares Israeli government to Nazis 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 26, 2016
Headline: “Those who pass between fleeting words”
Op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen, originally published in the London-based Al-Hayat newspaper
     “The terrorist [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu promises not to give up the Golan. I say to him (through a third party because I cannot speak with him) [parentheses in source] that Tel Aviv is not his. The Golan is part of Syria, and all of Israel is occupied Palestine… What I say is that the occupation of Palestine is an evil thing that will end with the return of the occupiers to the place from where they came. I do not expect that the justice will include putting the members of the Israeli government on trial as the Nazis were put on trial after the fall of the Nazis, but just that they will leave, as Mahmoud Darwish requested when he said to them that they ‘pass between fleeting words’ and that they should take their names and get out from on us. All of their news is a crime or lies. The Jewish holiday of Passover falls on the 22nd of this month, and it marks the anniversary of the exodus of the Jews from Egypt. According to information I have received from two university professors, which was verified by my friend, the archeologist Zahi Hawass, this whole story is a biblical myth. I challenge them to bring me one archeological remnant from Egypt or Sinai, as I challenge them daily to bring me one Jewish archeological remnant from Jerusalem, or to show us a rock from the alleged Temple.”

Former Arafat advisor: Israeli crimes against Palestinians “exceed the Nazis’ crimes by several degrees”

Headline: "Abu Sharif calls on Putin to stop Israel's expansion"
      "[Former advisor to Yasser Arafat] Bassam Abu Sharif called on President of Russia [Vladimir Putin] to stand firmly against the Israeli expansion, land expropriation, and building of settlements, being carried out with the criminal power of the occupation army. Bassam Abu Sharif stated in the name of a large group of members of the Palestinian National Council: 'I call on President [Vladimir] Putin to deter the racist regime from carrying out its criminal acts against the Palestinian people, its men, women, and children. Abu Sharif added that the Israeli crimes being carried out against [Palestinian] civilians have reached a point where they exceed the Nazis’ crimes by several degrees."
PLO official: Israel is employing “neo-Nazism” against the Palestinians 
Source: Amad, Independent Palestinian news website, Feb. 22, 2016
Headline: “Abu Yusuf: The American government’s role in the area has now become suspicious, and the Jerusalem Intifada must be supported until freedom is achieved”
     “Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Wasel Abu Yusuf rejected the possibility that the latest meeting of President Mahmoud Abbas with [US Secretary of State John] Kerry in Amman will lead to positive results for the Palestinians… Abu Yusuf stated that our Palestinian people’s intifada has amazed the world and exposed the truth about the neo-Nazism being employed by the occupation, and also said that the continuation of the Palestinian people’s resolve will thwart pressures being applied to the Palestinian leadership. Likewise, he clarified that it is not reasonable for the US to have a new role, and emphasized that the main goal of the American administration is to bring the intifada to an end.”
PLO official:” Israel’s “crimes… exceeds the Nazis' crimes by a few levels”  
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Feb. 18, 2016
Headline: "Bassam Abu Sharif: [German Chancellor Angela] Merkel must express the German people’s standpoint regarding the Palestinian people"
     "[PLO Central Council member and former advisor to Yasser Arafat] Bassam Abu Sharif demanded that German Chancellor [Angela] Merkel express the standpoint of the German people without fear complexes stemming from what the Nazis did, through support of the Palestinian struggle for freedom and recognition of the Palestinian people’s right to establish its independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. Bassam Abu Sharif added that all of the German citizens see with their own eyes the crimes being perpetrated by the Zionist occupation against the Palestinian people, and there is no doubt that the barbaric manner in which the Ashkenazis (i.e., Jews of European descent) perpetrate their crimes against children… exceeds the Nazis' crimes by a few levels, as the Ashkenazis are perpetrating their war crimes against an entire people."

Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee, Jibril Rajoub:‎ "I say to the Israelis first of all: You sons of bitches, we will not accept less than a ‎Palestinian state. We are the owners of the land, and we are the residents of the land ‎and you are strangers in the land... Our relations with the occupation need to be first of ‎all on a basis of clashes – until a Palestinian state is established. Do not believe in ‎‎[Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu, he is a liar and a scoundrel, and he’s a Fascist and ‎represents the new Nazism... From here we say to the 145 Martyrs (Palestinians killed ‎in the Oct. 2015 - Jan. 2016 terror wave, most during terror attacks –Ed.) – You are ‎heroes and we bless you and strengthen your families, and say to you: You are a ‎crown on our heads.‎"

PA daily op-ed: Israel is carrying out a “worse holocaust” against the Palestinians and "the victims have turned into the criminals" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 26, 2015
Op-ed by Fatah Revolutionary Council member Bakr Abu Bakr, regular columnist for official PA daily:
Headline: “The Israeli and the ‘Paris attack’”
     “There is no doubt that the Israeli always tries to take advantage of every event for his own interests, and use it for his policies and deceptive narrative, and he does not mind that he reminds the world of the broken record regarding ‘the Holocaust’ and ‘Antisemitism,’ and that the entity ‘the Jewish and democratic state’ fights terror. Likewise, he does not mind comparing what they claim is Palestinian terror and what happened in Europe (i.e., Paris terror attacks), so that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and his friends can again and again portray themselves as heroes and as fighting against terror and the evil represented by the Palestinian on one hand, and the country that sponsors it, Iran, on the other hand… The exploitation and use of global catastrophes as if their source is somehow the Palestinian or ‘Islam’ is common policy of the Israeli rulers today, and they themselves are the ones who intentionally remind the world of its ‘duty’ regarding the horrific Israeli ‘Holocaust,’ without taking into account that the victims have turned into the criminals, as today the Israeli occupation of our land is carrying out a worse holocaust.”

Paris attacks 2015 - On Nov. 13, 2015, seven terrorist attacks were carried out simultaneously in Paris, France, in which it is estimated that 129 people were murdered. An additional 352 people were wounded, 99 of them in serious condition. The most massive attack took place at the Bataclam theater during a rock concert, where 87 people were murdered. On Nov. 14, 2015 ISIS claimed responsibility for these attacks.

Video shows Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen speaking at funeral of the 16-year-old Palestinian Ibrahim Daoud, who died of his wounds.

Text under video: "The Fatah movement's message, from the mouth of Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen, in response to the US and [John] Kerry's standpoints. This is during the funeral of Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim Daoud, Fatah member in Deir Ghasana (i.e., a village north-west of Ramallah).
Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen in video: "Our national unity (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas) is the basis for dealing with the criminal plots being carried out by that racist criminal Zionist entity's government, and with the blind support it receives from the American regime, which insists on remaining the leader of imperialism and international terror, while describing the Palestinian people's struggle for liberty and independence as terror. This, while granting the occupier, that Nazi criminal, a certificate that its crimes against the Palestinian people are self-defense. However, I say to this Nazi occupier, and to the leader of terror, the US: 'We do not expect a certificate of good behavior from you, but rather Shahada (play on words: In Arabic Shahada means both “Martyrdom” - death for Allah - and “certificate” –Ed.) that we receive from Allah, who chooses Martyrs from among us, who are more honorable than all of us.'"

Ibrahim Daoud – 16-year-old Palestinian who according to WAFA, the official PA news agency, died of his wounds after being hit by gunfire from Israeli soldiers. PMW has not been able to verify the circumstances of his being wounded and his death.

Netanyahu is “a friend of Hitler and his ‎ilk” and is “stricken with political and ‎intellectual Alzheimer”‎ 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 22, 2015
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist ‎for the official PA daily:
     ‎“[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] ‎Netanyahu delivered a speech yesterday ‎‎[Oct. 20, 2015], Tuesday, to the Zionist ‎Congress, which was full of all colors of ‎forgery, deception, and incitement ‎against the Palestinian people and ‎President Mahmoud Abbas… and which ‎acquitted Adolf Hitler, the German ‎leader, of the blood of millions of Jews, ‎and ‘placed the responsibility for it’ on ‎‎[Grand Mufti] Haj Amin Al-Husseini, who ‎‎‘incited’ Hitler to carry out the ‎Holocaust, according to Netanyahu’s ‎neo-fascist logic…‎
Everyone knows that the Palestinian ‎people and its historic leaders, from ‎‎[Grand Mufti] Haj Amin Al-Husseini and ‎those who preceded him and followed ‎him, all of them were victims of that ‎Holocaust, whose results are the ‎responsibility of the British-French-‎German-American colonial West. This is ‎because they paved the way through the ‎ominous British Balfour Promise (i.e., ‎Declaration), and afterward through the ‎campaigns of Jewish immigration to ‎historic Palestine. They gave them (Zionist ‎Jews) (parentheses in source) all the ‎political, legal, financial, and military ‎reliefs to establish the Israeli state on the ‎ruins of the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the ‎Palestinian term for the establishment of ‎the State of Israel) of the Palestinian ‎people in May 1948... The ‎near future undoubtedly holds a strong ‎blow against the occupying fascist ‎Zionist leader [Netanyahu], as a friend ‎of Hitler and his ilk.”‎

Today, Jerusalem has become a military base. Today Muslims under the age of 40 are forbidden to pray in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

The following statement was made just after the Duma arson attack, in which two Palestinian houses in the West Bank were attacked and set on fire, killing an 18-month-old baby and his parents (see note below for more information):
      “Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki stressed that relations with Israel need to be reexamined, and demanded of the Arab world and the entire world to annul the recognition of it [Israel], isolate it, and put it on trial. Likewise, he emphasized that attacks to destroy ISIS should not be carried out, as it does not commit even part of the terror of an organized country like Israel, but rather these attacks should be carried out to destroy Israel, since its attacks are worse than those of ISIS.
He added in an interview with Dunia Al-Watan: ‘What happened (i.e., the arson attack and murder) is a war crime and eradication [of the Palestinians], which is included in the framework of terror of the organized country. Therefore, the entire world must know and see the crimes committed by Israel, instead of dealing with what is called ISIS and the fundamentalist and religious extremists. It is true that ISIS’ has harmed the world, but the worst kind of terror, according to the legal and true definition, is occupation.’ Zaki stated that Israel commits the worst kind of terror [by continuing] the occupation, and implementing Nazi methods, as the burning of people in their houses at 2.30 a.m. constitutes a serious war crime…"

Official PA daily op-ed: Murderous Israeli government policy is “successor to German Nazism and Italian Fascism,” Israel is “fascist, Nazi” and is committing a “holocaust”  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 1, 2015
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
      “This extremist right-wing policy of Netanyahu’s government, successor to German Nazism and Italian Fascism, which is reborn on the ruins of the bodies and blood of the Arab Palestinian people, could not in any way have expanded and broken out in the Arab Palestinian land without the silence and support of the US, Europe, and the entire world, including the official Arab regimes. Apparently, the condemnation statements made by the Israeli occupation and aggression state were only meant to conceal the ties the West has forged with Israel. This is because this world [the West] built its culture on the foundations of ancient and modern settlement, and sees in Israel the extension of the policy of dividing and tearing into pieces the peoples of the Arab nation, in addition to its role as a front line in service of the goals of the entire West, and the US in particular… Fascist, Nazi Israel is only above international law thanks to the discriminatory policies of the West and the US in particular and now is the time – not tomorrow or the day after – to respond to the holocaust Israel is committing.”

If there won’t be an arrangement in the region based on this initiative [the Arab initiative], there will be a different Arab position. This requires a meeting of the Arab generals, ministers of defense, and foreign ministers, so that we can design a new strategy by which we will force the Nazi leadership, which rules the Palestinian people today - a racist leadership with expansionist tendencies - [to surrender].

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)
