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."

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake speaks at length about the difficulty in paying the fines and damages levied by the Israeli courts against terrorists and their families. Karake also says that the PA government has been forced to stop paying the fines due to the financial pressures on it to pay not only the fines but compensation as well.
Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake: “In other words, if I want to go and hit an [Israeli] soldier and I injure him, I [have to] go and pay him damages? He is an occupier. He comes to murder me-”
Official PA TV host: “The message has been conveyed, Abu Khaled (i.e., Karake). The program’s time is up.”
Issa Karake: “He comes to murder me. In other words, they want to define the Palestinian struggle as a crime, as if [the fact] that we are struggling and defending ourselves and our honor has become a crime.”

Zaki revealed yesterday in an interview with Radio Mawtini that medical reports have indicated that this injection is life threatening. Based on these reports, he clarified that receiving this injection causes muscular dystrophy, and then the lifespan is limited to a period of four years. Zaki emphasized that this is what happened to Martyr Al-Shawamreh, and noted that this case already happened in the past with Martyr President Yasser Arafat (the reference is to libel that Israel poisoned Arafat –Ed.).’”

Abbas advisor tells teens: Israel puts knives next to bodies of unarmed Martyrs, Israelis say "the murder of a Palestinian has holiness like the holiness of the Sabbath"

The video shows a speech given by Al-Einein at a ceremony in Hebron awarding high school diplomas to students who completed their matriculation exams.
Advisor to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on NGOs and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein: “Most of our Martyrs (Shahids), gentlemen, were executed [only] out of a motive of hatred by the bullets of the oppressive occupation. They (i.e., those killed) did not have a weapon in their hands. Next to some of them they (i.e., Israeli forces) threw a knife…
The extremist settlers call to kill every one of you, and say that the murder of a Palestinian has holiness like the holiness of the Sabbath (apparently a reference to the words of Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu in July 2016 –Ed.).”

Sultan Abu Al-Einein’s false claim that “extremist settlers” liken the murder of a Palestinian with the observance of the Sabbath appears to be loosely based on comments by Safed Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, who in July 2016 spoke about taking action against terrorist murderers and said: “Revenge is a commandment of the Torah just like the commandment of the Sabbath.” He specified that by revenge he meant sanctions against them.

PLO official: Global terror is the result of "organized international terror being carried out by Israel"

Headline: "Abu Yusuf: Putin's message is very important and sounds the alarm before the international community"
     "Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Wasel Abu Yusuf said that the message of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the presidents of the Arab states (i.e., greetings sent to the Arab League Summit on July 25, 2016) is very important, as he understands the scope of the negative consequences of closing the political horizon…
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."

On July 25, 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin sent greetings to the Arab League Summit. Regarding the Palestinians, he said: “We will continue to provide all possible assistance in resolving the problem in Palestine, working through bilateral channels and through various multilateral groups. We consider the current status quo unacceptable and call for efforts to ensure the swift relaunch of negotiations on the creation of an independent, viable Palestinian state with territorial integrity, its capital in East Jerusalem, and living in peaceful coexistence with its neighbors.”

PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs warn Arab governments against "normalization" with Israel

     “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.”

Therefore, the number of Martyrs since the outbreak of the popular uprising (i.e., Palestinian euphemism for several months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis 2015 - 2016 -Ed.) at the beginning of last October [2015] has risen to 223 (Most of the Palestinians were killed while attacking Israelis - Ed.).
