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.

PA daily op-ed: Israel is an “colonialist investment project,” “Jews control the communications and media as well as the financial arteries of the large companies” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 16, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

        “There are those who rush to hold the Palestinian leadership responsible for the occupation state’s policy…
But don’t those same people who rush know… that the occupation state (Israel) [parentheses in source throughout article] is rebelling against international law, and that as a colonialist investment project it still answers the needs of the powers, which are interested in controlling the Middle East region in general and the Arab states in particular, subjugating its peoples, and preventing them from restoring their cultural status…The [Palestinian] leadership’s mission – to unravel the occupation state’s (Israel’s) connection with the powerful countries and states of the world – is not a simple matter, but it is also not impossible…
The mission is not simple because Jews control the communications and media as well as the financial arteries of the large companies, and most importantly: the European states are careful to leave the Jewish problem in the Middle East and prevent its return to its countries of origin (Europe).”

Official PA TV program
Palestine This Morning, on the anniversary of the PLO Palestinian declaration of independence, hosting PLO Executive Committee member Saleh Rafat

PLO Executive Committee member Saleh Rafat: "There are deep Palestinian roots in Palestine throughout all of history. It is a Zionist invention that this is the land of the Jewish patriarchs. This is completely incorrect. There were Jews in Palestine... We have Muslims, Christians, and Jews. But all of them were and still are [part of] the Palestinian people... The Khazar Jews were brought and expelled from Europe to Palestine, in order to get rid of them. Germany wanted to get rid of them, [as did] Britain, France, and Italy. All of Europe wanted to get rid of the Jews and expel them so that the West would have a permanent base in the Middle East. Indeed, they established the State of Israel on the land of historical Palestine."

Yasser [Arafat] said this statement in a loud voice:
For you O homeland, by Allah, death is sweet for me
Jerusalem is ours, and we are marching, and we will bring millions of Martyrs...
The love of Fatah unites us, and may Allah add to it
Whoever speaks about [Fatah’s] division - by Allah, we will eliminate him
Our hearts are for [Fatah], and we are soldiers, until we break the Jews."

Fatah Facebook posts cartoon depicting Balfour giving a “promise” to stereotypical Jew 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Nov. 3, 2017

Text and cartoon posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “#Balfour100”
Text on cartoon: "The 100th anniversary of the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)"

The cartoon shows British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour giving a document with "Balfour Promise” written on it to a Jew with a malicious smile and a Star of David on his hat.
Below this, a Palestinian is seen giving a key – symbolizing the return of the Palestinian refugees to “Palestine” – to a small child who is holding a Palestinian flag.

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.

Cartoon and text posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

Posted text: “#Balfour100 (refers to the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration on Nov. 2, 2017 –Ed.)”

The cartoon shows ultra-Orthodox Jews carrying Israeli flags and armed Israeli soldiers on a land mass marked “Europe” in English walking into a tunnel formed by a rolled parchment, on which “Balfour Declaration” is written in English and Arabic along with the number “100” and the British flag. The other end of the tunnel opens into the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas, and the map is marked with a Palestinian flag and “Palestine” in English. Ultra-Orthodox Jews and Israeli soldiers, including an Israeli soldier in a tank with the Israeli flag, are seen exiting the tunnel and shooting at fleeing Arabs, with several of the Arabs seen lying dead in pools of blood.

PLO official: Balfour Declaration “laid the foundations for the brutal system of oppression and Jewish settler colonialism in Palestine”

Headline: “During his visit to a number of prisoners and released prisoners’ families in Hebron – Karake: The Balfour Promise laid the foundations for the occupation’s brutal system of oppression”
      “Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said that the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)… laid the foundations for the brutal system of oppression and Jewish settler colonialism in Palestine, and that Britain bequeathed all of the means of oppression and violence against our people to the Zionist colonialism…
Karake said: ‘It is not enough that Britain apologize to the Palestinian people, rather it must pay compensation to our people following the disasters and victims that were caused to [our people] due to its policy supporting Zionism… and it also must recognize a free and independent Palestinian state, instead of degrading our people’s right to self-definition and celebrating the 100th anniversary of the colonialist Balfour Promise.’”

Abbas’ advisor: Balfour Declaration was an “ugly crime,” giving Palestine to “undeserving” Jews

Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash: "In another few days we will mark the miserable anniversary of the ugly injustice and ugly crime that befell our people, through what is known as the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration). In another few days, on Nov. 2 [2017], it will be 100 years of the ugliest injustice to ever befall [our] people in this land, in the modern age. One with no ownership of this land – Foreign Secretary [Arthur Balfour] of Britain which occupied Palestine while having no ownership of any part of Palestine, not even one millimeter or one grain of sand – gave a promise to one undeserving who has no connection to this land, not religiously or historically, at the expense of the Palestinian people... They [Britain] have no ownership and they have no right, and those to whom they made the promise [the Jews] have no right to it... Balfour and Britain committed this crime at our expense and at the expense of our history and rights, and this is not consistent with reason, religion, law, and morals."

Op-ed by PLO Prisoners' official: Israel keeps Palestinian “Martyrs” (i.e., killed terrorists) in freezers in fear of a “Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) legend” about their souls remaining alive  
Source: Palestine News Network (PNN, independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 11, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake

      “Six Palestinian Martyrs (Shahids) are still being held in the State of Israel’s morgue refrigerators, and the number was higher than this, but several of them were buried in what is called the military numbered cemeteries (i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and enemy soldiers). According to the Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) legend, the souls of the Palestinians remain alive, and the Israelis are concerned about their existence and return, and that is what causes them to freeze their bodies or leave them at the mercies of predatory animals in the numbered cemeteries… The Israeli Supreme Court and prosecution are still delaying in releasing the six Martyrs who are in the Israeli [morgue] refrigerators due to the concern over the Martyrs’ awakening from their popular funerals, and over the intifada of the freely spilled blood, and also due to the fear of the symbolism and great esteem for the Palestinian Martyr who resisted the occupation, and also [fear] of the legitimacy of this resistance in response to Israel’s attempts to turn everyone who resisted the occupation into a criminal, whether he is a Martyr or a prisoner.”

On Aug. 21, 1969, Jewish extremist Michael Denis Rohan (sic., Rohan was a mentally ill Christian) lit a fire in the eastern wing of the mosque, which spread to all of its contents… The [Arab] civilians succeeded in saving what was left of the Al-Aqsa Mosque before the fire could overcome it, after firefighting trucks came quickly from the cities of Hebron, Bethlehem, and different regions of the West Bank and the Arab towns in order to save the Al-Aqsa Mosque . This is despite the occupation authorities’ attempts to prevent them from doing this, and the fact that they stopped the water to the area around the mosque precisely on the day of the arson (sic., there is no evidence for these claims). The occupation [Jerusalem] Municipality’s firefighting trucks were also intentionally late in arriving so as not to participate in putting out the fire (sic., Israeli firefighters arrived within minutes but rioting Muslims interfered with their work and broke the only fire hydrant at the site). After Israel caught the perpetrator, an Australian citizen who came to Palestine as a tourist, it used the excuse that he was ‘insane’ in order to transport him to the place of his birth, Australia, after he was in a psychiatric hospital next to Acre for a short period.”

Abbas appointed dean of schools on PA TV: Israel is a "cancerous tumor", Jews "control the money, the press, the resources"‎

Imad Hamato, appointed by PA Chairman Abbas as dean of Gaza Al-Azhar schools, host of weekly PA TV program on Islam:
"Israel has worked hard to Judaize the land, [but] it did not stop at that. [Israel] worked to realize ‎something else: the Judaization of culture, [so that] the Arab intellectual embraces the idea of ‎acceptance of Israel as a recognized body and as an entity that has a right to live. Israel, the ‎invading country, the cancerous tumor – which we have already called a cancerous tumor in ‎the past – many intellectuals today talk about coexistence and offering our hands in peace, and ‎‎[say] Israel is part of the region. The noblest Arabs in terms of their Arabness, were those who ‎spoke up and said: ‘Israel does not exist!’ Those who did not say that were ostracized. Now, ‎whoever says that Israel should exist is met with approval... They [the Jews] are usurers. See, ‎the usury money and usurer banks, those who control the money in the world can be counted ‎on one hand - a few individuals - and all of them belong to the Jewish world. They control the ‎media, the money, the press, the resources, the plans.‎"
