Demonization of Jews/Israelis
Animalization and dehumanization
Demonization of Jews/Israelis
Since the Palestinian Authority was established it has systematically indoctrinated young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. Using media, education, and cultural structures that it controls, the PA has actively promoted religious hatred, demonization, conspiracy libels, etc. These are packaged to present Israelis and Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. This ongoing campaign has so successfully instilled hatred that fighting, murder and even suicide terror against Israelis and Jews are seen by the majority of Palestinians as justified self-defense and as Allah’s will. The PA presents Jews as possessing inherently evil traits. Jews are said to be treacherous, corrupt, deceitful and unfaithful by nature. These Jewish “attributes” and traditions are presented as the unchangeable nature of Jews. Forgeries and fiction masquerading as history are used to document and support the libel that Judaism is in essence racist and evil. Jews are said to be planning and executing heinous crimes, including burning Palestinians in ovens, murder, using prisoners for Nazi-like experiments, and more. If unchecked, these crimes constitute a mortal danger, not only to all Muslims and Arabs but to all of humanity.

The PA assigns responsibility to the Jews for all the problems in the world: Wars, conflicts and civil wars are all said to be triggered by Jews. Indeed, the oppression suffered by Jews throughout history is presented as the legitimate response of nations seeking revenge for the injury caused them by the Jews living among them. The creation of the State of Israel is said to have been a European plot, in order to be rid of their Jews and save Europe from the evil of Jewish presence in their countries.

The following are examples of Palestinian demonization:
Animalization and dehumanization
Palestinian Authority leaders and media repeatedly use animal images to depict Jews. This animalization and dehumanization play a role in preparing PA society to be willing to kill Jews. 

The following are examples of PA depictions of Jews as animals and subhumans.

Netanyahu and his associates are “devils”; “their evil souls tempt them to murder more and more” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 8, 2014
Op-ed by Fathi Al-Bis, regular columnist for the official PA daily:
     “In his response to the barbaric Zionist aggression against the Palestinian people, particularly in the Gaza Strip, the President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, said: ‘It seems the devil has possessed [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu.’ We in this region, for our part, say that Netanyahu and his associates truly are devils, unparalleled in perpetrating evil acts. Their evil souls constantly tempt them to murder more and more, and nothing else, under the illusion that murder is what will protect and save them from the existential fear concerning the fate of their cancerous entity, which can only be cured by [its] leaving our land.”

     ‎“The war Israel is waging against Gaza, ‎through a massive intensification of fire, ‎and against the West Bank, through ‎sporadic firing, attacks and suffocation ‎measures, have brought the confrontation ‎between it [Israel] and our entire people to ‎a point from which it is hard to return, ‎since the Palestinians – and not just ‎Hamas – have nothing left but their lives ‎and honor, and are ready to fight using ‎the fire at their disposal to prevent [Israeli ‎PM] Netanyahu from ending this war with ‎two disgraceful achievements. [The first of ‎these would be] breaking our bones in ‎terms of resistance and in the political ‎arena, and putting us into a coma… and ‎the second – making us incapable of ‎defending ourselves in war…‎
The resistance will persist until this ‎stubborn enemy retreats and finds a path ‎into the bosom of humanity. We are ‎protecting all humans, and are on the first ‎line of defense in the battle of humanity ‎against the dogs. The most decent, ‎necessary and correct thing would have ‎been, and still would be, for the world to ‎side with the humans against the mad ‎dogs!”‎

Official PA daily: Israel is "barbaric," "a product of myth, racism and war;" Israeli soldiers are "killers and savages" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 23, 2014
Op-ed by Fathi Al-Bis, columnist for the official PA daily 
     "The abhorrent sectarianism (i.e., wars in Iraq and Syria) is burning everything...
Israel - a product of myth, racism and war - believes that the conflagration in the region gives it a free hand and respite, and that the flames won't reach it. It therefore continues to kill, burn, destroy and attack, in all the forms inappropriate to human beings. Its leaders forget that these flames are burning because of it, and will be directed towards it in the end.
Israel's racist and extremist leadership has not learned its lesson. For over 60 years now, it has been killing, causing [people] to flee, expelling, taking prisoners, winning wars and annexing lands. But in reality, it is in crisis, because it has not succeeded in extinguishing the flames in the soul of the Palestinian...
The Israeli lives in the helmets of the soldiers of myth, who are killers and savages...
With the excuse of the disappearance of three settlers (i.e., On June 12, 2014, three Israeli teens were kidnapped while hitchhiking in the West Bank) who were on a land which did not belong to them, while robbing and challenging the owners of the land, Israel does as it pleases in the West Bank, and threatens Gaza... The Palestinian, with [his] Arab loyalty and identity which knows no sectarianism, confronts Israel. He observes with sadness the flames that surround him and that divert the people of the Arab nation from the duty of the basic and central confrontation, which is with the barbaric Israel. He looks forward to the day when the flames of [this] abhorrent sectarianism will be extinguished, so that everyone will be free to bury the [Israeli] myth that is being lived by the bloodthirsty, helmet-clad and rifle-bearing soldier."

     ‎“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin ‎Netanyahu protested on his website (sic. – ‎should be: Facebook page) the materials ‎being published on the official Facebook ‎page of the Palestinian National Security ‎Forces on the issue of the right of return. ‎The Israeli Prime Minister’s website used ‎these materials to claim that 93% of our ‎people are Antisemitic! ‎

On this issue, National Security Forces ‎spokesman Hafez Al-Rifai said: ‘This step ‎is part of the insane incitement campaign ‎the Israeli government is mounting against ‎the [Palestinian] leadership, in order to ‎dissuade it from continuing to demand the ‎rights of our people and from achieving a ‎just peace.’‎"

Young boy recites poem: "Zion is Satan with a tail"

Official PA TV program A Work of Art showed a child reciting the poem "Visa" by Egyptian poet Hisham El-Jakh.
PA TV host: What poem do you like to recite most?
Muhammad, creative boy who writes and recites poetry: The poem people liked the best, wherever I went, people asked me to recite the poem "Visa" by Hesham El-Gakh...
'When I was young I was taught that Arabness is my honor...
and that our lands extend from one end to the other,
and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail
and that our nation's armies are outstanding.'
Note: The poem describes what children have been taught by Arab leaders, opening with "When I was young I was taught...", but criticizes them for not acting according to their own teachings.
"My enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail" was one such teaching, the poem states, and criticizes the Arab world for its lack of unity, which prevents it from fulfilling the goals it has set.

Official PA TV: Israelis are "the bats of darkness" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 14, 2014
Official PA TV News on Nakba Day (i.e., ‘the catastrophe,’ Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel)
Official PA TV newsreader: “The land is still calling its owners to [realize] the right of return – in Haifa, Jaffa, Acre, Lod, Ramle and dozens of other cities and hundreds of villages. The bats of darkness have woven the despicable threads of the Nakba against the legal owners of the land; it [the Nakba] was no transient war or battle between two equal armies, but a red bloodbath [perpetrated] against our defenseless people.”

Note: Palestinians commemorate Nakba Day on May 15, the day after Israeli Independence Day. On May 15, 1948, combined forces from Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Iraq joined Palestinian Arab forces in an attempt to eradicate the newly-established State of Israel. The Nakba (i.e. "the catastrophe) refers to the displacement of Palestinians that occurred as a result of this Arab war of aggression against Israel.
Israel is a snake; Fatah and Hamas cut off its head 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 8, 2014
A cartoon in the official PA daily presents the reconciliation and unity between Fatah and Hamas as a means to destroy Israelis/Jews.
Israel is depicted as the head of a snake or worm, wearing a Jewish skull cap with a Star of David on it. The head may be intended to be a caricature of Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman. Palestinian reconciliation is presented as an axe. Its blade is a hand with two fingers forming the sign of victory. The victory sign functions as a pair of scissors, cutting off the head of the snake - Israel. The text on the axe says: "Reconciliation."
