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:
