Libels
Holocaust libels and misappropriation
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.
Holocaust libels and misappropriation
Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse are all components of Palestinian Authority ideology. A PA TV children’s program taught that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens. [PA TV (Fatah), March 25, 2004] At an exhibit in Gaza, children put dolls in a model oven adorned with a Star of David and a swastika. A senior Palestinian academic taught adults on PA TV: “There was no
Dachau, no Auschwitz; these were disinfecting sites.” [PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 29, 2000] A Hamas TV documentary explained that Jewish leaders planned the Holocaust in order to eliminate Jews who were "disabled and handicapped.” [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), April 18, 2008] A crossword puzzle clue in the official PA newspaper identified “Israel’s Center for the Holocaust and the Lies” as “Yad Vashem” – Israel’s Holocaust memorial. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 18, 1999] The same official PA daily has published many articles denying the Holocaust, including one that termed the Holocaust a “hen laying golden eggs.”

Schoolbooks produced by the Palestinian Ministry of Education teach the history of World War 2 in great detail but omit the history of the Holocaust, which is totally ignored. One history book does teach that Nazism was a racist ideology and that Nazi war criminals were tried, but it does not mention that Jews were the target of the racism, nor the crimes for which the Nazis were on trial. Palestinian education erases the actual Holocaust from history and usurps the word “Holocaust” for its own wide range of malicious libels.

This video depicts a PA TV children’s play teaching that Israel burned Palestinians in ovens.
"They [Israel] are the ones who did the Holocaust, their knife cuts to the length and the width of our flesh...
They opened ovens for us, to bake human beings.
They destroyed the villages and burnt the cities.
And when an oven stops burning, they light a hundred [more] ovens.
Their hands are covered with the blood of our children."
[PA TV March 25, 2004]

The following are more examples of Palestinian Authority Holocaust desecration, denial, and abuse. (Note: This material also appears under "Holocaust Denial and Distortion"):
Op-ed in PA daily compares Israeli Defense Minister to the Nazis  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 22, 2018
   “The man of the mafia and the Russian and Israeli bars [Israeli Minister of Defense] Avigdor Liberman is returning to his mafia roots with one difference – now, he carries a thick official stick as the Israeli colonialism state’s minister of war, and imposes his thuggery, racism, and inferiority on the Arab Israeli Parliament members, and Head of the Joint [Arab] List [party] Ayman Odeh in particular. This is due to the fact that the latter attacked the Israeli Police over the assault of the Palestinian and Jewish Israeli demonstrators who demonstrated in Haifa as a sign of resistance to the Israeli death army’s terror on the border between Israel and the Gaza Strip… These statements did not come by coincidence now, but rather they have a connection to the nearing of the parliamentary elections in Israel. This is exactly as Liberman did on the eve of the previous elections for the Israeli Parliament when he wanted to increase the rates of voting. Now he is turning to another way of incitement against the Arab public in general, and not just against Ayman Odeh and the Arab Israeli Parliament members, and in this way he is effectively acting like those similar to him, the Nazis, and is preparing the public opinion on the Zionist Israeli street for [action] against the members of the Palestinian people with Israeli citizenship and persecuting them in the different spheres and fields of life within the lawless State of Israel that is hostile to law, coexistence, and peace.”

Fatah spokesman: Israel is worse than Hitler, the Nazis, and fascism 
Source: Official PA TV Live, May 14, 2018


Fatah Spokesman and Fatah Revolutionary Council member Osama Al-Qawasmi:
"There is no regime in history – believe me, not Hitler, not the Nazis, not fascism – that has implemented what Israel is implementing against the Palestinians. It conceals these crimes - this Nazism and fascism, and this racist apartheid regime against the Palestinians - in the media under the cloak of ‘democracy,’ that it is ‘an oasis of democracy in the heart of the Arab dictatorships.’ It attempts to present itself in this way with the aid of the US."

President Abbas says he did not intend to offend Jews, following Antisemitic speech 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, May 4, 2018
"President Mahmoud Abbas stated on Friday that 'if people were offended by my statement in front of the PNC, especially people of the Jewish faith, I apologize to them. I would like to assure everyone that it was not my intention to do so, and to reiterate my full respect for the Jewish faith, as well as other monotheistic faiths.'
He continued, 'I would also like to reiterate our long held condemnation of the Holocaust, as the most heinous crime in history, and express our sympathy with its victims.'
'Likewise, we condemn anti-Semitism in all its forms, and confirm our commitment to the two-state solution, and to live side by side in peace and security.'”
Abbas in Antisemitic speech claims Jews' "social role that was connected to usury, and banks" caused Antisemitism, Holocaust; claims some Jews are descended from Khazars; denies Jewish connection to Israel 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 30, 2018

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas:  "The sons of Jacob were 12. Where did you bring 13 from? They invented it. Where? In the Khazar Kingdom. When? In the 9th century. It was an irreligious kingdom. Afterwards it became a Jewish kingdom. The emperor converted to Judaism and therefore [the kingdom] converted to Judaism.  Afterwards it broke apart, and all its residents migrated to Europe, and these are the Ashkenazi Jews (this claim is rejected by experts and genetic testing confirms uniform origin of the different Jewish communities-Ed.). The Ashkenazi Jews are not Semites, and they have no connection to Semitism or Abraham, Jacob, or others. It was a Tatar-Turkic state... Second, these Jews who migrated to eastern and western Europe were subjected to massacres by some state every 10 to 15 years from the 11th century until the Holocaust that took place in Germany. OK, but why did this happen? They say: 'Because we are Jews.'...  The hatred of the Jews is not due to their religion, but rather due to their social role. If so, it's a different issue. And therefore, the Jewish problem that was common in all of the states of Europe against the Jews was not due to their religion, but rather due to their social role that was connected to usury, and banks, and so forth... Now we are talking about the Jewish homeland. They are talking about longing for Zion and that's why they are going [there] and so forth. I say - not me, rather history says that these words are baseless."

PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” acknowledges Holocaust, but compares Israeli government to Nazi Germany

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, review of Israeli press headlines with PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas

Visual: PA TV’s “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas presents a cartoon from the Israeli paper Yediot Aharonot for Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 12, 2018.

PA TV “Israeli affairs expert” Fayez Abbas: “The cartoon today [April 12, 2018] in the [Israeli] paper Yediot Aharonot – of course, an elderly female Holocaust survivor with the number that they put on the Jews on her arm. She says to her grandson: ‘Make sure you don’t run out of memory,’ referring to the camera, and he says to her: ‘Don’t worry grandma.’ Of course this describes what is happening now and the memory of the Jews’ Holocaust in Nazi Germany. But the question is whether [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s government is learning or drawing lessons from what happened in Germany during that period – the laws, the members of the Aryan race, and the members of the s uperior race – that is what Netanyahu’s government is currently perpetrating.”

Official PA TV program PLO Institutions, on the PA Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall, hosting Head of the Jordan Valley portfolio in the Tubas district Mutaz Bisharat

Official PA TV host: “My brother Mutaz, would you please give us a description of the activity of the [PA] Committee [to Resist Settlements and the Wall], whether it’s rescuing or strategy- in other words, so that it will motivate the [Palestinian] civilians so that they won’t run from these outposts and these Palestinian regions, which can turn into settlement outposts.”
Head of the Jordan Valley portfolio in the Tubas district Mutaz Bisharat:
“In other words, the emergency plans. There are two types of plans presented by the Committee to Resist Settlements and the Wall. They are first of all the emergency plans, when homes are destroyed as I mentioned, when cars are confiscated, fines are given, and all of that – these are urgent and essential plans, and they protect the Palestinian presence… Development plans are plans that preserve the Palestinian families staying in these Palestinian areas of concentration, even though these areas of concentration have existed originally from before the establishment of the occupation.  In other words, the occupation is committing all of the types of violence against the members of our people, all of the types of Nazism against the members of our people. There is daily expulsion of Palestinian families.”

Headline: “The Palestinian truth is proven on the ground”
     “Israel was not created on the basis of the tall tales of the books of the Bible that contradict each other; it was established on the basis of the waves of colonialism that came one after the other, which viewed the Zionist movement as an ideal pawn. It is clear that Israel is declining daily into acts that are 1,000 times more despicable than the acts of the forces that it accuses of the disasters that befell the Jews, starting with the Babylonian exile, on to the Roman exile, and ending with the horrors of Nazism.”

US recognition of Jerusalem as capital of Israel - On Dec. 6, 2017, US President Donald Trump gave a speech formally recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and stating that he had instructed the State Department to begin preparations to transfer the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump concluded by stating that the US is still fully committed to the peace process in the Middle East. Following his speech, Trump signed the waiver to delay the transfer of the embassy, and apparently will continue to do so until preparations for the transfer have been completed.

There is the [former British Prime Minister Sir Henry] Campbell-Bannerman document for instance, which is an important document prepared by the former British prime minister, who held a series of meetings with the colonialist states at the time, between 1905 and 1907... They looked at the Arab region and at [the fact] that it should be made ignorant by all means, and should be divided by all means... They must be divided by planting a foreign body in the heart of the Arab homeland... And they talked about Israel or the Jews being the ones who need to be in this region. If so, the idea of a national home for the Jews is a colonialist idea...
[Regarding Britain's celebration of the Balfour Declaration,] I have said that there is no choice but for the Palestinian steps to continue. In other words some of these processions, at least, certainly suing Britain.

     “While Israel is celebrating 69 years since its establishment on the ruins of the Palestinian people’s Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), many questions arise that focus on one central point: What is the future of this state? Will it have a future if its political and military leadership continues [to choose] the option of war, death, and killing peace? For how long can Israel rebel and come out against international law and regional and global peace? And will reconstructing the Holocaust against the Palestinians help Israel survive? ...
Providing the answers remains [the role of] the political, cultural, scientific, military, and economic elite in the State of Israel; perhaps they will reach an informed and correct conclusion that will protect the future of all the peoples of the region and prevent Israel’s suicide.”

Netanyahu employs "hellish plan" to "blackmail" the world with pictures from the Holocaust in order to justify describing Palestinian "fighter prisoners" as "terrorists"

     “[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is taking advantage of the world’s preoccupation with the war on terror and is attempting to pass his hellish plan to crush the Palestinian cause. This is while in his head is the wicked thought that the world does not distinguish between a terrorist criminal and the last of the freedom fighters, and that the world will submit to his blackmail every time he presents pictures from the Jewish Holocaust and the sword of Antisemitism in order to justify the description of the Palestinian fighter prisoners fighting for freedom as terrorists.”

In a governmental meeting on April 23, 2017, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The Palestinian Authority needs to stop funding the terrorists sitting in prison and stop funding the families of terrorists who were killed while committing their crimes. This is a simple and clear test of the Palestinians’ desire for peace. You cannot be in favor of peace with Israel, and at the same time glorify and fund the murderers of Israelis and the murderers of other innocents.” The statement came after Netanyahu, in an interview with Fox News on April 21, 2017, called on the PA to “stop paying terrorists.”

Posted text: “Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said that the Israeli ministers’ statements against prisoner Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered), the demand to execute him (see note below –Ed.), and the incitement against the prisoners (PMW could find no basis for claims of incitement –Ed.) are monstrous statements that are similar to the statements of the Nazi leaders , and from them wafts a smell of hate, racism, and corruption.
Karake noted that these statements, which were accompanied by arbitrary steps of oppression against the [hunger] strikers… point to an official Israeli political decision to suppress the strike and break the willpower of the strikers, which will lead to an explosion of the situation and an escalation within and outside of the prisons.
Karake held the occupation fully responsible for the consequences of the strike and its likely results. He said that the incitement by Israel against the prisoners reminds us of Germany in 1933, and that the present government in Israel has begun to constitute a danger to security and peace in the region, in that it has opened a third front against the defenseless prisoners and against their legitimate humanitarian demands.
He also mentioned the series of extremist inciting statements against the prisoners, who have been described as poisonous insects, and the calls to spray them with gas, throw them in to the Dead Sea, and establish extermination camps for the prisoners."
