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]
