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.
Marwan Barghouti: Israel is an "abominable enemy" that carries out "massacres" and "theft of land"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 24, 2011
Marwan Barghouti, member of PA parliament:
     "I address special greetings to the great Palestinian nation, initiator of revolutions and Intifadas, with a legendary history of resolve facing the worst and most abominable enemy known to humanity and modern history; the enemy which does not shrink from carrying out massacres, continuing aggression, theft of land, establishment of settlements and expanding them, and the Judaization of Jerusalem – the city of cities and the jewel in the crown of the [Arab] nation – and continues with a policy of detention against the members of a defenseless people. I take this opportunity to emphasize once again what we have always said: Israel and its various governments have never made a strategic decision about peace, and the wait to achieve national independence with the approval of the Israeli government is nothing but an illusion. The national independence of nations is seized, through sacrifice, resistance, resolve, and struggle. National independence is seized; one does not wait for it. The gamble on the US will be of no benefit, because it [the US] is not the patron of peace, but rather the patron of the Israeli occupation, aggression, and settlement. In order for our people to be able to seize our national rights, the first step must be an end to the destructive, shameful and wretched split [between Fatah and Hamas]… We must continue on the path of resistance, and act for further achievements and recognition for the establishment of the state. We must continue to act to isolate Israel further on the international, official, and popular level, and on all levels and in all spheres, as well as continuing the campaign to boycott all Israeli goods, not limiting it to settlement goods exclusively.”

Benjelloun said that ‘Palestine is one large prison, and the suffering of the prisoners must lead to judgment of Israel as guilty of war crimes carried out against those who fight on a path that we all shall continue…
Benjelloun recalled the Israeli violations, describing Israel as a state that is above international law and legislation, and a cunning Satan which violates all human principles...Representative of the Arab League Muhammad Al-Helu noted in his speech that Israel has not sufficed with occupation, killing, torture and imprisonment, but carries out the ugliest forms of racism and torture of prisoners, even holding their bodies after they are killed, in clear violation of international agreements.”
Jews deserve expulsion for their crimes against humanity throughout history
Source: Al-Quds website, Nov. 6, 2010
Headline: “Mahmoud Al-Zahar: The expulsion of Jews from Palestine is near, just as Britain and France expelled them”
     “Senior Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Zahar said that ‘the process of expulsion of the Jews from the countries which they destroyed – continues, and they are destined to be expelled from Palestine just as Britain, France, Belgium, Russia, Germany and other countries expelled them.’ He said that ‘the chain of expulsions continues, and it is coming. We are no less honorable than the nations which expelled them. The time for their expulsion is approaching, Allah willing.’
He said, ‘The only nation which accepted them was the Islamic nation, and it extended protection and security to them, after they were expelled from all corners of the world. But they have no place among us [now], in the wake of their crimes… They will be expelled, and we shall return to pray in the Al-Aqsa Mosque.’
At a popular gathering in memory of the Khan Yunis massacre of 1956, Al-Zahar said that ‘the gift that the Palestinians will present to the children and grandchildren of the Egyptians who died as Shahids (Martyrs) in Khan Yunis will be [the opportunity for] prayer at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, soon.’ …
He called upon the whole world to answer the Palestinians’ questions: Why were the Jews expelled from their countries? He said, ‘The answer is known: they committed treason and stole and robbed, and destroyed the countries… therefore we need only recall their crimes against humanity throughout history.’
Al-Zahar appealed to the Fatah movement, saying: ‘Come, let us unite our words and our ranks, and wave our flag and liberate our land and our holy places with blood. As for the doomed negotiations, you have already tasted their bitterness.’”

He said: ‘The Palestinian people is still bleeding since the British Foreign Minister gave this promise, resulting in all that has happened throughout the years and what is happening now – killing, destruction, and theft… All this in order to be rid of this burden, called the Jews, which troubled Britain and Europe, who wished to be rid of this burden - even at the expense of a different nation.”

PA TV demonizes Israel in staged bloody scene
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Oct. 24, 2010
A PA TV documentary about Palestinian paramedics, intended to show a medic's typical experiences, includes a scene staged with actors that shows a Palestinian being intentionally targeted by unseen Israeli soldiers, then being shot in the forehead. (Hebrew speech is heard in the background.) The video indicates the Israeli soldiers' "intentional" targeting of the young man with a red circle marking his forehead. When he is "hit," a thick stream of "blood" shoots out from a hole in his head as it would from a water hose or a faucet.

Palestinian prisoners get degrees despite Israeli "oppression" and "incessant cruelty"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 9, 2010
Headline: "Prisoners in occupation prisons complete university studies and obtain MA and Ph.D. degrees"
     "The occupation authorities don't leave a single option [open] without using it to make things difficult for the prisoners, regardless of their party or faction affiliation. Behind the prison bars, they are all Palestinians, and in the eyes of the warden they are all deserving of the harshest forms of punishment. Despite the oppression of the occupation and its incessant cruelty towards the prisoners, many of them are defying the Israeli oppression and are determined to succeed while behind prison bars. Many of them have succeeded in obtaining the highest degrees, while others are working on the preparation of special research, getting them out to the world outside [the prison] and publishing them in the media, especially the electronic media. Owing to the rise in the number of prisoners receiving degrees - including Ph.D's - while still in prison, Israel recently began a new campaign meant to make things difficult for the prisoners and to try to withhold their elementary rights to education. It [Israel] has started to place obstacles in the way of the prisoners seeking to take the matriculation examinations. ... Prisoner Ayman Al-Hamoud takes great pride in his academic achievements in the Israeli prisons. He emphasized that all of his achievements were to spite the warden, and said that he had obtained an MA through the Al-Huraa University [based in Haag, the Netherlands]...

PA daily: Israeli defense Minister Sharon ordered massacre
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 18, 2010
     “It is now the 28. anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre, which led to the deaths of hundreds or thousands of innocent and defenseless Palestinians in those refugee camps, following the invasion of the city of Beirut, capital of Lebanon, by the army of aggression, occupation and Israeli organized crime… Sharon, historically known for his bloody, fascist tendencies, wanted to evoke the terror of the Zionist movement, organized and deeply rooted in its texture, in its groups and in its various ideologies, by carrying out a new act of massacre. This was aimed at inculcating the orders of murdering Palestinian and Arab non-Jews within the Israeli military establishment and the forces connected to it and collaborating with it. So it was on Sept. 17, 1982, in the wake of the departure of the revolutionary forces – the PLO – from wounded Beirut, that forces of crime, terror and racism of the Israeli army and its allies, the ‘separatist forces’ [derogatory name for the Lebanese forces, a militia of Christians in the war] hurried to carry out a massacre there against members of the Palestinian people, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps.”

     “Deputy Secretary General and head of the Palestine branch of the Arab League, Ambassador Muhammad Sabih, said that the Sabra and Shatila massacre is living proof of the scope of Israeli crime… He emphasized that what Israel carried out in 1982, under the leadership of Ariel Sharon, was a despicable massacre. He stated that Sharon and a number of commanders in the Israeli army had overseen the murder of children and innocents with joy and glee, although the victims had committed no crime other than being Palestinians. He emphasized that ‘this massacre is a basic part of the fundamentalist and terrorist thinking of certain leaders in Israel.’… The permanent Palestinian representative at the Arab League and Ambassador of Palestine to Egypt, Barakat Al-Fara… said: ‘The Sabra and Shatila massacre is part of a black Israeli series [of crimes], filled with destruction, blood, and the intimidation of defenseless civilians.”

Israel encourages "herds [of settlers] for hate, racism, arrogance and the killing of Arab 'goyim' [non-Jews]"
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 16, 2010
     “Advisor on National Affairs to the Prime Minister, Minister Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, condemned the ripping of copies of the Quran and their trampling underfoot by Jewish extremists two nights ago in the middle of Jaffa Street in western Jerusalem. He said that this criminal act is the result of the dark campaign of incitement in the Israeli school curricula, and especially among religious groups and their rabbis, such as Ovadia Yosef, the spiritual father of the Shas party, and similar sowers of destruction, ruin, and strife among the adherents of the monotheistic faiths.
The Prime Minister’s advisor said: ‘This Zionist religious terror by herds of settlers comes just a few days after the American Zionist-like mercenary pastor announced his intention to burn the Quran. This proves the connection among the extremist groups among the different religions, and between the forces of the American Right among the Republican Party supporters and their allies among the herds of settlers in the Israeli apartheid, racist state, which nourishes these herds day and night for hate, racism, arrogance and the killing of Arab ‘goyim’ [non-Jews] in general, and Palestinians in particular.’
Al-Ghoul continued by saying that these provocative acts of terror – which provoke hatred among adherents of the different faiths and are carried out by hired groups serving as agents of the cartels of weapons and death throughout the world, especially in the US and in Israel - are implementing a policy of lighting the fuse of civil war, religious war, and national wars, for the benefit of their masters who are among the merchants of war and organized terror.”

"Fight, brother, the flag will never be lowered,

On [Mt.] Carmel (in Israel) and in the [Jordan] Valley,
we are rocks and streams.
In Lod (Israeli city) we are poems, and in Ramle (Israeli city) – grenades.
We, my brother, shall remain the revolution of the fighting nation."

Vocalist sings:
"The Zionists went out from [their] homelands,
compounding damage and enmity.
But the Palestinian revolution awaits [them].
The orchard called us to the [armed] struggle.
We replaced bracelets with weapons.
We attacked the despicable [Zionists].
This invading enemy is on the battlefield.
This is the day of consolation of Jihad.
Pull the trigger.
We shall redeem Jerusalem, Nablus and the country." Click here to view

He said, ‘In the past, you [Israelis] were the number one victim… I wasn’t born then; it was the tragedy of my people that was born. You turned from victim into a monster; you didn’t use gas chambers, but rather things that were worse than them. You killed and annihilated generations from among my people …’ When the judge asked him if he was guilty, Basem answered: ‘Address that question to the Israeli leaders; concerning the massacre that they carried out against a defenseless people. You are the new Nazis upon the earth, and hopefully we will enjoy the destruction and ruin that you will bring upon your own people because of your barbarism.’"
