Libels
Libel: Israel murders and poisons
Libels
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.


Throughout history bogus conspiracy accusations have been used to incite hatred, violence, and mass murder. The myriad conspiracy libels concerning Israel, Israelis and Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s ongoing hate promotion. PA libels claim that Israel conspires to infect Palestinians with AIDS, spread drug addiction, conspired and successfully murdered Arafat, and more. The PA’s goal has been to inculcate hatred to the degree that fighting and murdering Jews and Israelis will be glorified as heroic self-defense.
Libel: Israel murders and poisons
Vicious libels about Israel and the Jews are an integral part of the Palestinian Authority’s strategy to infuse hate in the Palestinian population. Fabrications assert that Israel intentionally pursues children, poisoning candy and planting bombs inside toys to kill them, murders Palestinians in cold blood, and mutilates dead bodies. These and many other libels add to the ongoing demonization of the Jews, paving the way for acceptance of terrorism against Israel as legitimate self-defense and even as an ideal in itself. 

This video depicts one libel, voiced by PA Mayor Mustafa Fuqah, contending that Israel makes weapons and ammunition disguised as toys because Israel wants to kill children.

PA Mayor Mustafa Fuqah:
"Some [explosives] are in different shapes. Some are shaped like pens, and some look like toys. Some are in different shapes to tempt children to touch them or pick them up. This is a real danger and real proof that the Israeli army targets children and young ones."
[PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 29, 2012]

The officer executed young Hadeel, and he seriously wounded Norhan who was left lying on the ground for many hours without aid being provided to her.
The ministry said in a press release yesterday: ‘The investigation case was closed after what is called the Israeli “Ministry of Justice,” which is led by extremist Minister Ayelet Shaked, reached the conclusion that “the officer’s use of force was justified,” on the pretext that the officer “worried that the young women were wearing explosive belts”’…
The [PA] Ministry of Information said that the acquittal of the girl Awwad’s murderer by the occupation’s police is a public call to terror and encouragement to murder the members of our people in cold blood.
The ministry emphasized in its statement yesterday that the fact that the occupation’s kangaroo courts compete with each other in releasing murderers proves for the thousandth time Israel’s racist discrimination, which ignores the murderers of our children, awards its soldiers who are involved in blood[shed] the highest decorations as in the case of young Abd Al-Fattah Al-Sharif (sic., Israeli soldier Elor Azaria who shot terrorist Al-Sharif was given a prison sentence), and defends the extremists who burned child Abu Khdeir (sic., the murderers were sentenced) and destroyed the Dawabsheh family (sic., suspects are being investigated).”

The ministry said in a statement yesterday [April 2, 2017]: ‘As is its custom, the government of Israel is hurrying to justify the extrajudicial murders on the pretext that a “stabbing attempt” was carried out (sic., 3 Israelis were stabbed) – which is currently placed under great doubt after many of these claims turned out to be false. This is particularly so in light of the fact that the government of Israel gave the Israeli soldiers the authority to shoot any Arab that they suspect or feel endangers them, even if he does not threaten their lives. As a result of this, every Arab has turned into a shooting target at any given moment and any place, according to the consideration of the occupation’s soldiers who are deployed throughout the Palestinian territories. This has led to a doubling of cases of summary executions, particularly because these soldiers feel that they have official immunity that allows them to shoot any Palestinian… It is as if from their perspective this is just a game from which they lose nothing. Sometimes it turns into a game of a challenge or bet between the occupation’s soldiers themselves in order to amuse themselves and pass the time, or out of an ambition for some sort of promotion.’”

This comes amid national concern over the spread of the disease, which according to new official statistics [every year] threatens 84 new people out of [every] 100,000 Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Maryam and her family do not have the disease, but she knows children who suffer from it, and she arrived for them to take part in the first Marathon of Life, in order to raise awareness of cancer and its dangers…
District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam emphasized the importance of these activities…
Ghannam connected the rise in the occurrence of cancer to the cancer of the settlements and the fact that the occupation is disposing of poisonous and radioactive waste in the occupied Palestinian territories.
She said: ‘We all know that the largest cancer in the life of the Palestinian people is the Israeli occupation, its settlement enterprise, and their waste that indeed causes the occurrence of cancer.’
She added: ‘For our people, who deals firmly and resolutely with the cancer of the occupation and the settlements, there is enough willpower to defeat cancer and provide treatment for the sick.’”

Headline: "Karak and what is after it"
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily
     "What is the connection between the timing of the attack by the criminal and barbaric members of ISIS against Karak in the Hashemite Jordanian Kingdom (i.e., attack in Karak, Jordan, on Dec. 18, 2016, 10 killed, dozens wounded) and the bills the government of Israel gave to the Israeli Parliament, to legislate laws to legalize the settlements in the Palestinian West Bank and to forbid sounding the call of the Muezzin (i.e., Muslim call to prayer) with loudspeakers in the mosques of Jerusalem (sic., the law does not apply only to mosques or only to Jerusalem, see note below)? What influence will there be from the involvement of the kingdom in grave security matters, such as ISIS' bloody attacks… at the expense of its responsibility for the holy sites in Jerusalem, according to the agreement signed with the State of Palestine? (sic., Israel handed over the administration of the Temple Mount to the Jordanian Waqf in 1967) …
The timing of these crimes and the fact that they are being carried out simultaneously with the trend and decisions of Israel to establish the occupation, the settlements, and the Judaization of Jerusalem and the holy sites – and primarily the Al-Aqsa Mosque – rule out the possibility of coincidence; this makes us certain that these barbarians are guided by the remote control of the supreme Israeli interests. According to orders they bomb here, slaughter there, and destroy in another place."

Fatah emphasized: ‘The names of the fighters – leaders and soldiers alike – will continue to serve as torches, as the criminal mentality of IS will not succeed in putting out their lights, even if their gravestones are shattered and even if their pure bones are swept away, because the history of the Palestinian national movement is too magnificent to be harmed by a criminal blood-spilling terror organization, which is in fact a product of the Zionist enterprise.

He emphasized that what is happening in Hebron is a policy of ethnic cleansing, which is based on the executions of our defenseless people. This was said during a press conference that was held in the district office building regarding the recent developments and Israeli attacks…
He added: ‘The children of the Old City [of Hebron] and Hebron in general understand well that what is happening is that they are being directly targeted. Therefore, we warn that a continuation of the Israeli army’s steps, which receive direct political backing from the Israeli government, is grave and pushes the situation to the brink. No one can predict what the consequences will be.’
He said: ‘According to the information at our disposal, the soldiers provoke children and directly incite. They say to them, “Where are the knives,” and ask whoever is not carrying a knife why he does not have a knife on him. This is incitement of the children at the checkpoints, the entrance, and throughout the district. The occupation army and its government are intentionally inflaming the situation in order to serve their settlement goals.’”

(Palestinians killed during their attacks against Israelis –Ed.) They receive religious backing in addition to the political, legal, and security backing provided by the Israeli government of settlements and extremism’…

Sheikh Hussein condemned the brutal attack on the Hebron district. He clarified that the occupation is using the pretext that the young people are trying to stab, throw rocks at the occupation soldiers, or other worthless pretexts, which only reflects the determination of the occupation to continue the series of premeditated murders and aggression against the defenseless members of our people…

The mufti condemned the fact that radical right-wing Israeli Member of Parliament Yehuda Glick held religious ceremonies next to the Cotton Merchants’ Gate, one of the gates of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque…
He clarified that the Al-Aqsa Mosque, with its gates, walls, plazas, and structures, is property of the Muslims alone, and that no one has the right to desecrate its sanctity.”

Head of the Information Committee of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub said that the level of the fascism and terror that Israel has reached today only proves to us all that it is only specializing in the cold-blooded execution of Palestinians at checkpoints, roads, and gates of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque... Al-Jaghoub added: ‘We view with severity Israel’s return to the method of daily arrests, blocking routes to the traffic of [Palestinian] citizens, and preventing their arrival to their homes and workplaces.

Op-ed in official PA daily: "Summary executions" are "Israel’s way of getting rid of those it wants to get rid of," ever since Biblical times 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 19, 2016
Headline: “The summary executions – a policy that is escalating”
Excerpt from op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza
     “I was horrified when I saw a video on one of the Palestinian satellite channels that it was claimed showed Martyr (Shahid) [Hatem] Al-Shaloudi, and the two analysts said that this video is proof that Al-Shaloudi stabbed an Israeli soldier. The footage that was shown on this channel is not clear, and in no way is there a stabbing operation in it…
But why did the satellite channel, which calls itself a Palestinian satellite channel, claim [that Al-Shaloudi stabbed a soldier] – this question remains unanswered...
In general, the trend of summary executions is a fixed trend that is growing stronger in the Zionist ideology, which draws [inspiration] from the Biblical story, which always incites to murder and wipe out the other. This trend has existed since the Book of Exodus, through [the Book of] Judges, and up to the Book of Kings, and the reasons are always attributed to divine commands! ...
The summary executions always exist. They are Israel’s way of getting rid of those it wants to get rid of, even if they are Jews who are from a different ideological and political stream. The loss of media control in our circles to which we are witness these days is a most damaging loss of control, which does not serve us at all… and provides the main enemy – the occupation – with a free service.”

Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during the first Lebanon War, Muslim residents of the camps were massacred by Christian Phalangists. The PA has a longstanding policy of falsely accusing Israel of committing the massacre or actively helping to carry it out.

Headline:
“Tomorrow is the 34th memorial day of the Sabra and Shatila massacre”
     “Tomorrow, Friday [Sept. 16, 2016], will be the 34th anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre that took place on Sept. 16, 1982, in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camp in Lebanon.
The massacre that was carried out against the people of the camp continued for three days, between the 16th and 18th of September, during which many unarmed civilians, men, children, women, and elderly, fell as Martyrs (Shahids), most of them Palestinians. During the massacre, Lebanese also died, and the number of Martyrs was estimated at the time to be 3,500 – 5,000 Martyrs from among the 20,000 people who lived in Sabra and Shatila at the time that the massacre took place.
The massacre began after the Israeli army, led by then Minister of War (sic., Minister of Defense) Ariel Sharon and Rafael Eitan (i.e., then Chief of Staff of the Israeli army), encircled [the camp]. The massacre was carried out far from the media, and melee weapons and other weapons were used in order to wipe out the residents of the camp, while the mission of the Israeli army was to encircle the camp and light it at night with flares... There were only children, elderly, and women in the camp and the armed people killed the women and children, and most of the bodies were [scattered] in the streets of the camp. Afterwards, Israeli bulldozers entered to sweep the camp clean and destroy the houses in order to hide the crime."

Abu Yusuf noted that the fact that the president of a large and significant state like Russia is discussing the issue of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict points to a correct trend, and sounds the alarm before the entire international community, even regarding everything that is called terror that is taking place globally as a result of the organized international terror being carried out by Israel, as without drying up the Israeli terror, it will not be possible to get rid of the global terror. This is because there will not be security or stability in the region without the Palestinian people obtaining its full rights."

Abu Al-Einein stated in a press release, in response to Netanyahu’s demand that President Abbas fire him, that ‘our Palestinian people is the one being massacred daily by the Israelis at the direct order of the Israeli government without any deterrent.’


Abu Al-Einein emphasized that the presence of the settlers on Palestinian land is the main reason for the incitement in the Palestinian street, and added: ‘The whites in Africa did not relate to the blacks with the same racism like the settlers relate to our people, harassing it daily and stealing its land.’

He said: ‘It would be fitting if Netanyahu would stop spilling Palestinian blood and penetrating Palestinian territories, and would stop the settlement.’ Likewise, he noted that the occupation army has [made] a decision to create daily conflict with the Palestinians, and wondered: ‘Who is responsible for this?’

Abu Al-Einein accused the occupation soldiers of the cold-blooded murder of dozens of our Palestinian people who did not carry any knife, and blamed the continuing violence on the Israeli government that continues land theft and daily harassment.”

PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs warn Arab governments against "normalization" with Israel 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 15, 2016
Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs warns Arabs against Netanyahu’s normalization proposals”
     “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned in a notice yesterday [July 14, 2016] against the normalization proposals of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he calls to develop the ties with the Arabs…
The [PA] ministry emphasized that… Netanyahu is trying to advance [the idea] that peace on the regional level is still possible, in order to block the international peace efforts and give the impression that he seeks opportunities and ways that will enable a return to Palestinian and Israeli negotiations through the Arab level. Thus, he essentially reverses the Arab peace initiative and changes it from its present form, as the initiative proposes normalization ties between Arab states and Israel after arriving at a final peace agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state in the borders of 1967 with East Jerusalem as its capital, and the achievement of a just and agreed solution on the subject of the refugees.
The ministry added that Netanyahu erases all this and skips to attempts to create a new Middle Eastern reality in a way that will strengthen what he calls Israeli-Arab ties at the expense of the Palestinian issue, without there being any connection between it and the end of the occupation of the State of Palestine's land or an end to his Jewish settlement activities, the theft of Palestinian lands, and an end to his ongoing attacks against occupied Jerusalem and the holy sites, the demolition of homes, and the summary executions.”

Headline: “Our new generations are the hope!”

Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, a regular columnist for the official PA daily and a member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

“[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu said that the incitement is the problem, and not the settlement enterprise! This is a form of diplomatic and moral contempt that has spread in the Israeli society like cancer, and we identified it in an Israeli minister, one of Netanyahu’s ministers who were selected by him to stand to his right. The minister said that the Palestinians are happy about the settlement enterprise, which gives them workplaces in the settlements! Look what the racism has come to, the contempt, and the stupidity! The homeland of a people is stolen, and afterwards they claim that it is compensated for its homeland through work for the occupier who stole its homeland. Is there a need for incitement when there are such despicable acts, and such racism?
We heard the same disgusting logic several days ago from the Council of Settler Rabbis, which issued a religious ruling to poison the water of the Palestinians (sic., no such council exists and not such ruling was ever issued). This insane council is recognized and receives support from the Netanyahu government and the Israeli Parliament, where there are even more disgusting voices. These rabbis have no connection to the Jewish tribes, because they are part of the thirteenth tribe that is not connected to the children of Israel. They are Khazars who appropriated Judaism and established Zionism, and they are behind every shameful act of the occupation.”

For instance, the Israeli wars and their crimes turn into ‘defense’ of residents on the border, and according to the logic of the Western countries working in coordination with Israel, the equation is reversed: ‘It is Israel’s right to defend itself!’ The occupying state, which maintains a colonial settlement [enterprise], holds arsenals of nuclear, biological, chemical, conventional, land, marine, and aerial weapons, perpetrates all types of killing, destruction and burning of citizens, their fields, their homes, etc., against the unarmed Palestinian people that is subject to occupation for the last 70 years, and has nothing at its disposal but its resolve, rocks, and knives – and yet it [the Palestinian people] is required to ‘condemn’ its struggle, because it is viewed as ’terror’ in the eyes of the capitalist West, the Americans, and the Europeans, and even when the [Palestinian] people marks its annual Martyrs’ (Shahids’) Day, it becomes ‘incitement’ and violence.”

The ministry stated that the anniversary of the death as a Martyr of the initiator of the Palestinian revolution, leader Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad,’ the first bullet and the first stone, is a chance to prosecute the occupation in the international forums for the ethnic cleansing crimes it has perpetrated and continues to perpetrate against our people, leaders, and country.
The ministry added: ‘The crimes enveloping the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp (in Damascus –Ed.), where the body of leader Al-Wazir lies, prove that the occupation and the dark forces (i.e., ISIS and other terror organizations that took over parts of the refugee camp) join hands in order to harm our people everywhere and at all times. This obligates the free world to intervene in order to assist our people and implement the decisions of international institutions, particularly those that guarantee the right of return and compensation.’

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Headline: "Israel's terrorists blame others for what exists in them"
Op-ed by Jihad Al-Khazen in the official PA daily, re-printed from the London-based Al-Hayat
     "I have worked in journalism non-stop since I was an adolescent, and I followed the terror of the white regime in South Africa and the massacres in Rwanda, and also in Srebrenica (i.e., town in Bosnia and Herzegovina ) after the division of Yugoslavia. However, all of this is dwarfed by the terror of the Israeli right-wing and the government of war criminal settlers, headed by the most despicable man in the world, [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, and the US Likud (i.e., American Friends of Likud), which protects the last apartheid state in the world.
[US] President Barack Obama spoke at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington about preventing the 'dirty bomb' [from reaching] the hands of ISIS. He did not speak about Israel's nuclear arsenal, despite the fact that Israel and ISIS compete with each other in [the field of] terror…
There is no peace with the Netanyahu government. It is a government that includes the most right-wing extremist terrorists who live on biblical myths that never actually took place. The name of the land is Palestine, and it is occupied, and Israel is a myth, written hundreds of years after the alleged events.
In conclusion, the terrorist right-wing in Israel does not include all of the Israelis and Jews, as there are many groups of Jews working for peace and defending the Palestinians, and they deserve gratitude and appreciation."

Therefore, it kills a child in order to leave a whole family filled with eternal yearning for him, it kills a young man who had dreamt of a job, a wife, and a peaceful home, and kills the head of a family, and by its crime makes him leave a widow and children… its bullets snatch a woman, whose daughter, a child, becomes a surrogate mother in a single moment. It throws children behind its bars who haven’t seen anything of life, and who, within their (i.e., the Israeli) prisons, become young and mature men whose children have grown, married and had children, turning the prisoner into a grandfather. In prison, there are endless stories about a mother’s anticipation of her child, a woman’s of her husband and the fiancé who keeps postponing her wedding day… the occupation continues to fight against the dreams of the Palestinian, who continues responding, gets up in the morning, and says to himself: Live!”

The ministry emphasized in its notice yesterday [Dec. 30, 2015] that what is happening to the Martyrs’ bodies is something that cannot be overlooked, and that it is a criminal act that requires the human conscience to act to stop this immediately. The ministry stated that our people’s Martyrs are not guinea pigs that can be frozen and have their organs stolen. They have honor and dignity, because they fell for their occupied land, and the entire world’s laws permit them to resist its occupier. They [the Martyrs] cannot be related to as bandits, and falsely accusing them of terror is an attempt to hide the [occupation’s] crimes and their cold-blooded assassination.”

The cartoon shows religious Jews crucifying a Palestinian boy, while an Israeli soldier stands by in the background and does nothing.
This cartoon may be seen as a general comment and part of the PA libel that claims Israel targets children deliberately, “killing them in cold blood.”  It also repeats the PA comparison of Palestinians to Jesus, which presents Palestinians as “Martyrs” like Jesus was. The cartoon may also refer to the Israeli court’s decision not to prosecute the main suspect behind the murder of Palestinian boy Muhammad Abu Khdeir, but to send him for psychiatric assessment instead.

Muhammad Abu Khdeir - Palestinian teen kidnapped and murdered by Israeli extremists in Jerusalem on July 2, 2014, in revenge for the kidnapping and murder of Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel in the West Bank on June 12. Following Abu Khdeir’s murder, Palestinians took to the streets of East Jerusalem in violent and continuous protests. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other Israeli ministers immediately condemned the revenge killing in the strongest terms. Israeli police arrested six Israeli suspects on July 6th; under interrogation, three of the suspects confessed to murdering Khdeir. On Nov. 30, 2015, the three suspects were found guilty and convicted of kidnapping, assault and murder. Two of the suspects, both minors whose names have not been revealed to the public, will be sentenced in January 2016. The third suspect, an adult named Yosef Ben David, won’t be formally convicted until his insanity plea is resolved.

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 12, 2015
Headline: "The occupation executed a doll in Nabi Salah and forgot to place a knife next to it"
     "The occupation soldiers shot a doll resembling a Palestinian peasant in a garden of a home in the village of Nabi Salah, West of Ramallah, because they mistook it for a real person.
Teacher Abdallah Al-Tamimi made the statue and dressed it in traditional Palestinian clothes as an educational tool for a class about the [Palestinian] peasants for school students. However, he did not know that his doll would become a target, because it looks like a Palestinian man, and that like any Palestinian it will be taken for a suspect and face the danger of getting killed, and that afterwards the occupation will take out of its pocket the excuse it considers appropriate for justifying the murder. It seems that the statue took the occupation soldiers by surprise, and at night, when they invaded the village in order to arrest citizens, they mistook the statue for a man who could be lying in wait for them in the house's garden, and they immediately shot at him in order to kill him. After the shooting, the occupation forces brought military reinforcement to the area, and they realized they had shot a doll, which the soldiers quickly moved to the street and burned in order to hide their crime and their panic. The residents found this incident ridiculous but at the same time they considered it a sign that [the Israeli army] does not hesitate before shooting Palestinians, and of the fabrication of the accusations [of Palestinians] trying to stab soldiers, which comes after. The residents responded with bitterness and pain, saying that perhaps the occupation soldiers have forgotten to place a knife next to the doll and accuse it of stabbing and lightly injuring one of them in order to justify its execution."

     “The Hebron district has not yet calmed down from its panic and woken up from the shock of the execution of one of its young men, or its young women, and already the district, shattered and fettered with checkpoints and settlement, learned of an additional summary execution. The false excuse of ‘stabbing’ is ready and immediately attributed to the Martyr (Shahid), immediately after they rained a flood of bullets of hate and treachery on him. The repeated and ongoing scene of intentional murder at the military checkpoints in the Old City of Hebron and at the entrance to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs), due to ‘stabbing attempt’ or ‘holding a knife’ are not a new policy of the occupation authorities to justify the murder and eradication they are carrying out against our people, and we are sure now that their goal is ‘wholesale execution’ in cold blood. The crime was repeated yesterday against a young man and young boy innocent of any crime, and took place in the same arena – within the boundaries of the Old City and its environs. Less than 4 hours after the crime of the execution of Martyr Mahdi Muhammad Ramadan Al-Muhtasib, 23, in the Al-Salaymeh neighborhood near the Ibrahimi Mosque, an Israeli occupation soldier spilled the blood of the boy Farouq Abd Al-Qader Sidr on Al-Shuhada St. near the Al-Dabbouya building, which the occupation turned into the ‘Beit Hadassah’ settlement, in an event that ignited the rage of the district’s residents, who have not yet healed from their wounds."

Likewise, it demanded that the Israeli police reveal [the pictures from] the cameras that filmed the area of the operation. Anwar Al-Okabi, the Martyr’s father, said that his son Muhannad was summarily executed, and that the family did not know about the operation (i.e., terror attack) in Be’er Sheva, the carrying out of which was attributed to him [their son]… Said Al-Okabi, the Martyr’s uncle, said to the website Arab 48: ‘The criminals who shot Muhannad and took the law into their own hands need to be punished. There is a possibility that Muhannad did not carry out the operation, and there is a suspicion that he defended himself, and perhaps he was not even at the place of the operation. Maybe he intended to carry out the operation, but nobody can be sure of those intentions, if nobody shared his thoughts.”

PA daily op-ed likens Israel to Hamas; claims Israeli PM orchestrates suicide bombings to victimize Israel 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 20, 2015
     “Religious conflict is the worst conflict from a historical perspective, because it carries within it acts of barbaric massacre, which the murderers infuse with a godly atmosphere, though God actually has no connection to them. Therefore, the calls made by bodies claiming to speak in the name of the Hamas movement in favor of renewing the explosion, suicide[-bombing], or Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e., terrorist attacks) against the occupation on the West Bank, are consistent with the will of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, who is planning massacres and preparing cemeteries for his [Israeli] citizens in order to receive public condolences. [At the same time,] he is secretly organizing celebrations to receive congratulations on the fact that his explosive policy has brought the situation to the point of no return, something he has been striving to achieve in the field.
The explosion operations (i.e., terrorist attacks) are unacceptable, as they have no national consensus, consensus among the factions, or even within Hamas itself, as whoever is interested in beginning a war on the West Bank alone is of the same destructive thinking which resulted in Gaza waging three wars without achieving anything but destruction, several thousand pure-hearted Martyrs (Shahids), tens of thousands of injured, destroyed neighborhoods, and ongoing siege; any resistance operation which does not achieve its political goal is a negative operation, as anyone who plans such explosion operations, it is as if he is assisting the government of Israeli terrorist parties.”

In other words, that Israel will continue to avoid its responsibilities regarding the Palestinians’ rights. Regarding the current events, Al-Salehi clarified that the Israeli escalation, and especially in occupied Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, is unprecedented, and the summary executions of women and children are meant to create facts on the ground, and are consistent with the ongoing efforts to put an end to the national rights. He clarified that the Israeli escalation has been met with heroic efforts of challenging [Israel] by the Palestinian side in different regions, which enables the broadening of the popular resistance to the occupation and its exacerbation, in order to achieve the optimal result, which is the end of the occupation, and the establishment of a Palestinian state… Al-Salehi demanded to keep the popular uprising in its current form as a broad popular resistance movement in order to achieve its goals, and not to let it sway from its path in a negative direction, as happened in the second Intifada (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Intifada, PA terror campaign 2000-2005) and [not to] militarize it or bring it to the point of

Text in post: "For a long time the Israeli enemy officials have been boasting about the strength of their army, and they have described it as an 'invincible army,' which has become the fourth strongest army in the world.  Yesterday [Oct. 18, 2015], we saw the exact truth of this army: A [well-] armed army which was beaten by Martyr Muhannad Al-Okabi (i.e., terrorist who shot and killed 1 and wounded 11), and before him Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who stabbed and killed 2 and wounded 2), even though he was defenseless, and was not armed with anything but his right to his homeland and his Palestinian will - the same will which the great armies of the world have not been and will not be able to defeat or harm... We and the whole world saw soldiers flee, despite being armed with their weapons, the moment Martyr Muhannad [Al-Okabi] fell upon them, when he was 'defenseless' or 'pulling out a knife.' Thus he created another rung on the ladder of Palestinian praise, and has won the medal of honor as a Martyr whose name is engraved on every Palestinian's chest.
Note: I advise the enemy to arrest everyone whose name is Muhannad."

PA daily accuses Israel of “executing” Palestinians and fabricating stabbing attacks as excuses

      “The occupations' soldiers and settlers continued in their crimes against our people yesterday [Oct. 17, 2015]. They executed 5 [Palestinian] citizens (two young men and a young woman in Hebron, a boy in occupied Jerusalem, and a young man from Katana), alleging that they tried to stab soldiers and settlers. However, a video exposed the lie in the occupations' claims, while the last videos showed settlers in Hebron 'celebrating' the murders... The excuse of a 'stabbing attack' is present at every execution the occupation soldiers are carrying out at the various checkpoints, and is presented on a 'platter of blood' immediately after they take out their targets. As with the execution of Al-Qawasmeh (i.e., terrorist who stabbed one) on Al-Shahada Street... by an extreme settler, the occupation soldiers are quick to find an excuse: One of the soldiers gave another soldier a knife, so that he would put it by the Martyr's body.

The soldier withdraws the rifle, leaving the knife in the hand of the Palestinian, thus making it look like the Palestinian is the one attacking the soldier with the knife.

This is due to its understanding that this Palestinian generation was born from the womb of pain, not wrapped in fear or illusion to push it to hold onto worthless promises, such as those that turned previous generations into targets for deception and [targets for] being pushed off with excuses… The troubling and serious data regarding the occupation’s army and police harming Palestinian children and minors, whether through executions and cold-blooded assassinations, or through arrests and torture during the arrest, the chase, the interrogation or the imprisonment, they confirm, in a way that leaves no room for doubt, that harming children is not absurd or by coincidence.

Al-Kitab TV host: “Dear viewers, we must talk about the high number of Martyrs (Shahids) in Palestine compared to the number of dead Israelis. This is an indication of the violence and tyranny of the Israeli occupation. It’s true that the occupation kills many of us and they become Martyrs, but the number of dead on their side is low. This demonstrates the violence and tyranny of the occupation. Many of them [Palestinians] were executed in cold blood, and the occupation claimed that they had stabbed a soldier or a settler. It has become a sort of a game. Every time the settlers see a Palestinian walking by, they throw a knife next to him and claim he was trying to carry out a stabbing attack…  Eternal glory for the devoted Martyrs. We salute their families and wish them [the ability] to carry their burden with patience. We praise the young heroes who sacrificed their souls for Jerusalem and carried out these wonderful heroic acts. We kiss their hands because they are true heroes. We say to all the Mujahideen (i.e., Jihad fighters) of Palestine: ‘Mujahideen, keep your shoes, because the day will come when all the museums of the world will ask them of you.’”

All the mouths in the [Israeli] right-wing government call for murder while our blood is on their teeth, and all the [Palestinian] mouths call to protect ourselves against the attack planned in advance to devour the holy city, taking advantage of the current Arab weakness. It is possible that the president's insistence on opposing any change [of the status-quo] at the Al-Aqsa Mosque clarifies that what the [Israeli] right-wing government is plotting will fail, because our people is determined to defend its holy places, even if the others abandon us."

Likewise, we haven’t seen any injured Israeli, only the body of a young Palestinian by the Lions’ Gate on the ground, nothing on him, next to a young woman lying on the ground, and there is also a boy who has died as a Martyr (i.e., terrorist who stabbed 2) under unclear circumstances is the Pisgat Ze’ev settlement...
The occupation - which have allowed the settlers to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque at all times, and which is at the moment exacerbating its mistake and allowing the spilling of blood, such that every Israeli will turn into a murderer who can kill any Palestinian, claiming he tried to stab [him] - is responsible for the situation we have reached. This is so as most of the Israeli versions of stabbings are false and forged, and we can appeal the stabbing stories, since the Israeli government is exaggerating with lies and fabrications.”

Headline: " [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem respond to [Jerusalem Mayor Nir] Barkat's calls by requesting international protection"
     "Advisor to Abbas on Jerusalem Affairs Ahmed Al-Ruweidi called for the international community to provide the [Palestinian] residents of occupied Jerusalem with protection, especially from the attacks of the occupation forces and settler gangs, [who are carrying out] organized murders against the residents of the city... He [Al-Ruweidi] noted that the murder of the student [Mustafa] Al-Khatib (i.e., terrorist who stabbed one) yesterday [Oct. 12, 2015] at the Lion's Gate is fraught with threats against the worshippers, who are being distanced from the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] by the occupation authorities. He also said that the shooting of the student Marah Al-Bakri (i.e., terrorist who stabbed one) next to her school, and the two children from the Manasrah family (i.e., two terrorists who stabbed two) yesterday marks the education sector and youth as a target, all in order to intimidate the citizens and distance them from their city. Al-Ruweidi emphasized that the [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem will not move from their city, and said: 'Their [the Israelis’] actions and policy will not scare us. We will remain in Jerusalem and protect it and its holy sites, first among them the blessed Al-Aqsa [Mosque].'"

The footage shown in the beginning of this PA TV report is from a terror attack on Oct. 9, 2015. Palestinian terrorist Muhammad Fares Abdullah Al-Jaabari stabbed an Israeli border policeman in Kiryat Arba near Hebron, stole his gun, and attemptedto shoot a second border policeman.The second policeman shot and killed the terrorist.
Warning: Graphic images
Official PA TV News reporter: “In a fit of hysteria and madness of the occupation government against our defenseless youth, the occupation police is executing our children and youth in cold blood just because it suspects them. Then it falsely accuses them and fakes [evidence] to justify its crimes in the eyes of the world, and to present itself as a law-abiding country defending its threatened people... Scenes of children being killed due to mere suspicion, painful scenes which even Hollywood's greatest directors have trouble directing, the Zionists direct skillfully. All they have to do is to murder the victim. Whatever comes next is already there, except for the law that is absent.”

Child Hassan Manasrah, 15, died as a Martyr yesterday and his cousin, Ahmad Saleh Manasrah, 13, was seriously wounded by the occupation’s gunfire, after, according to [the Israelis’] claim, they stabbed two settlers in the settlement of Pisgat Zeev, which is situated on the lands of Hizmeh and Beit Hanina in the north of occupied Jerusalem.”

     “The last attack and execution of Palestinians residing in Jerusalem was the execution of the young Muhammad Nazmi Shamasneh (i.e., terrorist who stabbed 3), from the village of Katana northwest of Jerusalem, in the Jerusalem bus station, based on the claim he had attempted to take a soldier’s weapon. This despite the fact that in the picture the Martyr (Shahid) is seen bound before he was executed in cold blood.
This sight was repeated yesterday [Oct. 12, 2015] in the settlement of Pisgat Zeev next to the Shuafat refugee camp in the center of occupied Jerusalem. Bullets were shot at two children: Martyr Hassan Khaled Mahaineh Manasrah, 15, a 10th grade student at the Ibn Khaldun school, and Ahmad Saleh Mahaineh Manasrah, 13, an 8th grade student at the Al-Jil Al-Jadid school, who was injured. The two of them were on their way home from school. They went to the commercial center next to their homes in the settlement Pisgat Zeev, and were shot, based on the claim that they had tried to stab settlers. Hassan was killed by the shooting, while settlers and people from the occupation forces gleefully tortured the child Ahmad and did not give him any aid, despite the fact that he was seriously injured, while cursing and saying very crude things, which were widely quoted in the social media.
The student Marah Al-Bakri was seriously wounded by a settler’s gunfire, on the pretext she had tried to stab him, and before that the student Mustafa Al-Khatib was executed in the area of the Lion’s Gate, for the same accusation (an attempted stabbing of a soldier) [parentheses in source].”

Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas: “I do not want the [Palestinian] children to die from the fascist occupation’s hostile soldiers’ gunfire. They receive orders to murder from [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe] Ya’alon.

Let’s guard our children, and we do not want to say out loud ‘we will die and Palestine will live.’ We want to live so that Palestine will live, if we will die, and the children will also die, who will remain in Palestine, the settlers!’”

PA daily imples that Israel deliberately injures or kills Palestinian construction workers

     “Yesterday [Aug. 22, 2015], the residents of Beit Qad and the nearby villages accompanied Martyr Abd Al-Rahman Zaidan (45 years old) - the Martyr worker who fell while trying to make a living - to burial in his birthplace after his family received his body from the Israeli side. The deceased, Zaidan, died after falling at a construction site within the territories occupied in 1948 (i.e., Israel). Sources in the deceased’s family said that Zaidan worked at a construction site in Herzliya… As a result of the accident, the number of workers killed within the occupied territories (i.e., Israel) rose, which necessitates taking action in order to provide protection and safety for construction workers in the occupied territories. Within one month four workers from the Jenin area were killed, in addition to many who were injured from among workers in the occupied interior (i.e., Israel).”

The occupation claims that he tried to stab a soldier and scratched him on his shoulder, and the Israeli response was six bullets which caused his death within a few moments, after efforts to save his life failed. The occupation, after all, was determined to kill him, and the presence of ambulance crews did not change that reality at all, as they were forbidden to go near him until his death was verified, or at least until it became impossible to save his life.

Some days earlier an additional Martyr [was killed] near Ramallah under the same pretext – an attempt to stab a settler – and before that a young Palestinian [was killed] under a third pretext: an attempt to run over a group of soldiers next to Sinjil. This is in addition to many similar events, in the majority of which the Palestinian is killed in cold blood, while the Israeli is lightly injured. The death of Palestinians as Martyrs under the pretext of an attempt to stab soldiers and settlers has become common news in the media, but without focusing on the occupation’s goal: premeditated murder. If one believes the occupation’s claims, according to which these young people tried to carry out stabbing operations (i.e., terror attacks), it would have been simple to arrest them – if the occupation wanted to do so – but it wants to kill, and nothing else…

The occupation’s War Minister (i.e., Defense Minister) Moshe Yaalon verifies that the goal of his soldiers is to murder, and he praises their conduct.

And insanity is preferable to cowardice, and whoever does not go crazy is a person who cannot be trusted. The viper glances at the eyes of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and blurs its senses. It almost submits, but it is greater than the mouth of the viper. And the blood is damp on the ground of Jerusalem.

And we will say: Enough! And the gods will smile on us. Our silence allowed the absurdity. And there is an ancient evil wandering the hills surrounding Jerusalem, and no one is monitoring it!
O confused listener. Do not hold your breath, and listen properly to the stones. Every time we shake the hand of the murderer, we are destroying the rocks and killing the trees. If Jerusalem is our prison, it is their grave. And your people, with its bare chest, breathing at your back, O Al-Aqsa Mosque.

How can a Muslim or Arab dare claim that he is a real Muslim, when the Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to violations, desecration, and extreme Biblical games? How can anyone open his mouth and say ‘I am an Arab’ while the Al-Aqsa Mosque is subjected to the rampaging of the occupation and its settlers and to the absurdity of their mythological delusions?

Libel: Israel deliberately targets Palestinian children

Op-ed by Palestinian National Council member Khaled Mismar:
     “Take note of how the enemy targeted our children [in the 2014 Gaza war] – most of the Martyrs (Shahids) were children – in addition to the women, elderly and handicapped. This is the barbarity of the occupation, which has surpassed Nazism in its crimes. Do you know why they target our children? I will tell you. The late President, [our] icon Yasser Arafat, would always declare that a boy or girl from among the children of Palestine would raise the Palestinian flag over the walls of Jerusalem, over the turrets of its mosques and churches. That is why they are afraid of the children.”

Netanyahu is “the commander of the death and barbarity squads,” who “does not mind killing more of our people” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 20, 2014
Op-ed by Dr. Sabri Saidam, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council and President Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor for communications and information technology:
     “After failing to achieve his three objectives – destroying Palestinian national unity, destroying the rockets in Gaza and blocking its tunnels – [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu is ending his war with no victory to sell to his voters, with which to beat his opponents and those competing with him in racism and hatred of the Palestinians… The defeated Netanyahu will search for a new adventure... This time, the address will be the West Bank… So we can expect to hear claims, in the coming days... about the disappearance of soldiers and settlers, the danger of a possible explosion, [about] tunnels dug under certain settlements, a plot to abduct Israeli military personnel, the theft of sensitive files, or some sort of cyber-attack. Netanyahu wants war in the West Bank, which is why he recently came up with the pathetic scenario of the [three] settlers (i.e., the kidnapping and murder of the three Israeli teens), but no one was fooled as he had hoped… The commander of the death and barbarity squads does not mind killing more of our people, if he can thereby achieve his wish. Therefore, we can expect to see frantic attempts to drag the West Bank into some sort of conflict which will give Israel an excuse to play the role of victim once again, complete the construction of the [separation] fence and expropriate what remains of the West Bank.”

Note: On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists while they were hitchhiking in the West Bank.

Fatah official: Ben Gurion ordered "massacres" against Arabs

Headline: “An interview with Abbas Zaki” 
Q. For the first time, the Palestinians are united behind their demands, but the negotiations have dragged on for two weeks. What is going on?
[Member of Fatah Central Committee and Fatah Commissioner of Arab Relations and Relations with China Abbas Zaki:] ‘In the past few days the ideas that have come up for discussion have not progressed, because they have not accomplished their goal; every idea was either vague or had a catch. Israel is experienced at evading an admission of defeat. For example, they condition the ceasefire on the cessation of hostilities, as though the legitimate struggle for the liberation of the land constitutes aggression.
They also conditioned our right to an airport and seaport, and even the rebuilding [of Gaza], on the disarmament of the resistance. The delegation refused this, and the Egyptian brothers did not repeat this request…’
Q: The occupied West Bank tried to demonstrate presence through shooting operations and confrontations through rocks. What about the possibility that a third intifada will break out?
[Zaki:] ‘What is happening in Jerusalem and the West Bank is a mass uprising, necessitated by the crimes being carried out by the gangs of settlers and the [Israeli] soldiers. As if history repeats itself, new price tag militias are based on the models of the Lehi, Etzel, and Hagana from the period of the establishment of the state, [David] Ben Gurion who gave the order to carry out massacres under the slogan “Let us defeat the Arabs through fear.” The popular uprising continues, but there are cautious expressions of armed resistance in the West Bank. The conditions are not yet ripe for intifada.’”

‎     “When anonymous individuals, whom ‎Israel assumed to be Palestinians, ‎kidnapped and murdered the three ‎settlers, there was a great gap between ‎them and their authorities.

Furthermore, there is a big difference ‎between the nation from which the ‎kidnappers of the three youths came, and ‎the communities from which the abusers ‎and murderers of the Palestinian youth ‎came: for the first nation has no ‎subjugation, settlement and aggression ‎initiatives and its presence on its land is ‎not a crime, whereas the presence of the ‎settlers on Palestinian land constitutes a ‎daily crime in itself… ‎
Whatever [Israeli PM] Netanyahu’s ‎government may do to throw dust in [our] ‎eyes, the crime of the torture and murder ‎of the Palestinian youth could never have ‎happened without the aid of the ‎atmosphere it [Netanyahu’s government] ‎created. What happened to the youth is a ‎part or example of the result of its policies, ‎language, culture and intentions, whereas ‎what happened in Halhul (i.e., the ‎kidnapping of the three Israelis) had ‎nothing to do with the PA or the political ‎powers…‎

The Ministry added: ‘Netanyahu’s claim is ridiculous, and nobody in his right mind will believe it, since a state that has been occupying a land for 66 years, that has obliterated over 400 Palestinian towns and villages, and killed, wounded and arrested over a million Palestinians, cannot talk about incitement.’

He committed suicide in his home on April 22, a few days after having been released from administrative detention, and a week before he was due to stand trial in court on charges of contact with a foreign agent, providing service to an unlawful association and performing property transaction for terrorist purposes.

Ahmed Safadi, brother of Israeli-Arab lawyer Amjad Safadi:
“I maintain that the occupation gave Amjad a few pills and a few medicaments that led to his death, led to the deterioration of his health and mental condition. That’s the claim and it will be proven soon, Allah willing. Therefore, this affair was planned by the occupation.”
PA TV Host: “Ahmed, there is a clear message here from the occupation state, including all its apparatuses, to the prisoners and the released prisoners and to all the lawyers working for the prisoners: ‘Beware – your fate will be like that of Amjad.’”
PA Foreign Ministry: Liberman's land-swap proposal is a "fascist" plot to perpetrate "ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 27, 2014
     “The [PA] Foreign Ministry condemned the ideas of the settler Liberman regarding what he calls the ‘population and land swap,’ calling them racist settler statements coming from the mouth of a gangster of the likes of occupier and exploiter Liberman, who treats the Palestinian issue as if it were an internal Israeli issue, and gives free rein to his expansionist, fascist dreams and aspirations at the expense of another people, whose land he is occupying and whose freedom he is stealing. In a statement issued yesterday [March 26, 2014], the Ministry emphasized that the only things supporting Liberman’s opinion are the exploiting occupation force and the laws of the Libermanian jungle.
The Ministry emphasized that the idea of a land swap was, from its inception, contingent on Israel’s recognition of the State of Palestine according to the 1967 borders, and that in such a case, the two states would be able to agree on an equivalent land swap, of small proportions only, acceptable to both sides. In addition, it [the Ministry] condemned Liberman’s ideas and rejected them completely, considering them clear calls for the increase of the settlement, expansion and Judaization of the Palestinian lands, as well as for the perpetration of ethnic cleansing against the Palestinian people.”

     “Today, Tuesday, is the 20th anniversary of the massacre at the Ibrahimi Mosque (Cave of the Patriarchs), in the city of Hebron, in which 29 worshipers were killed and 150 were wounded. In the early hours of Friday, Feb. 25, 1994, the terrorist Baruch Goldstein, with the participation of the Israeli occupation forces and Kiryat Arba settlers, perpetrated the abominable massacre, which testifies to [the Jews’] secret hatred of the Palestinians. During the massacre, occupation soldiers [stationed] in the sanctuary locked the doors of the Mosque to prevent the worshipers from fleeing; in addition, they prevented those outside the mosque from entering its courtyard to rescue the wounded.
Later on, more people died as Martyrs (Shahids) from occupation soldier fire outside the mosque and during the Martyrs’ funeral processions, which raised the total number of Martyrs to 50.”

Former Arafat advisor accuses Israel of committing Sabra and Shatila massacre, bombing US embassy in Beirut, and killing John Kennedy 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Feb. 12, 2014
Official PA TV program Memory of the Homeland interviewed former advisor to Yasser Arafat Bassam Abu Sharif.
Abu Sharif explains that the reason former Israeli PM Ariel Sharon carried out the Sabra and Shatila massacre was his concern over the high number of Israeli Defense Forces’ casualties in Operation Peace for Galilee (1982). The aim of the massacre was to increase the number of Palestinian casualties, he claimed. Abu Sharif also said that Philip Habib, chief mediator for the US in the Middle East (1976-1978), told him in a meeting in Paris that Robert Ames, the CIA station chief in Beirut, had sent a report directly to President Reagan, in which he recommended a peace agreement between Israel and the Arabs based on the land-for-peace principle, and that Israel, in revenge, blew up the American embassy in Beirut, killing the CIA personnel.
Bassam Abu Sharif: “Reagan’s wife and the head of the CIA in the Middle East agreed that he would send his reports directly to the White House, contrary to usual practice, according to which the CIA sent its reports to the State Department… and one of the documents sent directly to the White House was a peace initiative, entitled ‘Land for Peace’, which Reagan proclaimed… And [Habib] told me: ‘This is the reason Israel took revenge on Bob Ames and the CIA representatives in the Middle East, by blowing them up in the American embassy in Beirut…’
John Kennedy was killed in accordance with an Israeli decision, because he refused to supply the [Israeli] nuclear power plant in Dimona with equipment that would make it possible to build nuclear missiles, unless the US monitored the reactor.”

Muhammad Abu Saada, lecturer in International Law, University of Palestine, Gaza: ... Based on Livni's mentality and on an analysis of Livni's personality, could she do something stupid? And could her threat be carried out? The answer is yes. Why? First of all, Livni comes from a family that is extremely far-right... I want to remind so-called Minister Livni: Livni, the French government issued a warrant for your arrest in 1983. Why? Because at the time, Livni was a Mossad officer working as a maid in the home of an Iraqi nuclear scientist and she killed him with poison... Livni, in legal terminology, is a criminal. She has a criminal record. She is a murderer. She committed murder in 1983 and Britain issued a warrant for her arrest in 2009. Livni's personality has a criminal mentality of direct murder. Therefore, we must understand this [threat] on the personal level. Regarding the price, we're talking about two things. Either the price is President Mahmoud Abbas' life - this is one price."

PA TV News reported on a conference in Egypt about the Palestinian curriculum and Israel’s attempts to introduce the Israeli curriculum into East Jerusalem schools.
PA TV reporter Najwa Yunus: “A never ending display of the Palestinian student’s suffering, who suffers terribly until he reaches school, if he even reaches it in the face of an occupation that tries to prevent him [from doing so,] whether by arrests or even by spread poison in his brain. And indeed, the occupation of the mind is more serious than the occupation of the land.”

In Turkey, senior political officials attended a communal meal to break the Ramadan fast with senior PA officials. Among the PA officials were: PA Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake, PA Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, Palestinian Ambassador to Turkey Nabil Ma’arouf, Israeli Arab MP Muhammad Barakeh, and Chairman of the Prisoners’ Club Qadura Fares. Released Palestinian prisoners who were deported to Turkey also attended. The following are excerpts of the conversation at the meal, reported in the official PA daily:
     “[PA] Minister of Prisoners’ Affairs [Issa Karake] praised the sacrifice of the Marmara ship Martyrs (Shahids) who fell defending Palestine, and he wished the wounded a speedy recovery. In addition, he noted that the Israeli occupation kills anyone who tries to express solidarity with our Palestinian people. He also referred to the suffering of the prisoners in the occupation’s prisons and noted that there is no prisoner in the world who serves a 30 year prison term, except for the Palestinian prisoner…
[PA] Ambassador [to Turkey Nabil] Ma’arouf noted that one of the main issues that concerns us is the prisoners’ issue, because 4,700 prisoners are still wasting away in the Israeli occupation’s prisons, and most spend over half of their lives inside a detention center. That doubles their families’ suffering.” From WAFA, official PA news agency

Note: Marmara refers to the Turkish ship “MV Mavi Marmara” that tried to break the Israeli blockade on the Gaza Strip in May 2010 – The “Gaza Freedom Flotilla.” On board the ship were activists and among them terrorists who attacked Israeli soldiers with weapons when they boarded the ship. During the ensuing fight nine of the terrorists on board were killed.

     “The President of the State of Palestine [Mahmoud Abbas] expressed his condolences to the Al-Sharawna family for the Martyrdom death of their son, Moataz Idris Al-Sharawna [who was killed] by the occupation army’s fire. In his telegram the President said: ‘At a time when we condemn and denounce this barbaric crime [and] all the detestable crimes and the policy of daily murder carried out by the occupation army in cold blood against our defenseless people in order to terrify it and break its resolve, we also express our confidence that our people, resolute in its homeland, will continue its struggle and [continue] holding on to its land. These crimes will not deter it from adhering to its rights and enduring on the soil of its homeland.’”

Note: Moataz Idris Al-Sharawna was shot by the Israeli army during clashes in Hebron.

PA youth magazine: "Recall the wild jungle-like deeds and barbaric behavior of the Zionists... whose blood was nurtured with malice towards mankind" 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, May 1, 2013
Headline: "The Palestinian Nakba Day"
     “Emotions stir on this anniversary [of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel)]. The hearts yearn, [one is] breathless, the movements slow down, the brains are worn out, the thoughts are confused, and the tears flow...
Then the automatic thought begins to recall the wild jungle-like deeds and barbaric behavior of the Zionists, who began to build a state for themselves on the ruins of a people they destroyed with their own hands. The kernel of a gang, whose blood was nurtured with malice towards mankind – murder, destruction, captivity, stealing, robbing, an absence of human traits.
An anniversary that stirs the emotions of the fathers as they remember their Martyr (Shahid) sons. Mothers cry as they remember the prisoners, and hopes are renewed among the grandchildren thanks to the key the grandfathers hid, [which] became the symbol of the return.
An anniversary that has become a lesson and a moral: one person recalls the slaughter of children and elders, another recalls the destruction of homes, another tells how a woman died, and someone else recalls homes that became heaps of stones, but [still] tell the story of a people who will surely return.
Look, hear the Nakba of members of your people, your people, your family – how they were uprooted and how a woman’s unborn child was murdered in cold blood. No, do not forget the soil of your land, no matter how much time may pass. The land will return. We shall build a palace of glory and praise, and the lion cubs’ (i.e., children’s) eraser will rub out the words that the vile ones wrote.”

Girl recites poem: Jews "murdered children," "cut off their limbs," and "raped the women in the city squares"

A young girl recites a poem filled with libels demonizing Jews on the weekly PA TV children's show The Best Home:
Girl: "Allah created me and formed me
He made me prouder and made me a Palestinian
He made defiance flow like blood in my veins
And I made the revolution burst forth like clay stones
I raised the flags of certain victory:
Allah's book [the Quran] and the tradition of the most esteemed among prophets [Muhammad].
I called in the voice of hidden justice
I lit a fire like volcanoes under their feet
I refused to be submissive and degraded
I rejected [everything] but dying with the honor that will give me life
From a nation that has forgotten the Muslims' heroism
- Omar ibn al-Khattab and Saladin - [Muslim fighters who conquered Jerusalem]
from between the whistles of the bullets I sing:
'Long live the nation of Fatah and Yasser Arafat'
Allah's enemies, the sons of pigs (i.e., Jews, in Islamic tradition)
Destroyed and uprooted the olive and fig trees
They murdered children with guns, like snakes
They cut off their limbs with stones and knives
They raped the women in the city squares
They defiled Allah's book [the Quran] in front of millions
Where is the nation of Islam?
Where are the nation of Islam and the Jihad fighters?
Where is the fear of Allah in Jerusalem, which has been defiled by the Zionists?"
PA TV host: "Bravo, applause, applause, applause to Hadeel."
