Religious War

‎"Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of ‎religion and faith. Long Live Fatah!”
[Official PA TV, Jan. 9, 2012] ‎

This statement was made by the moderator at a Fatah celebration and was broadcast ‎on Palestinian Authority TV.‎

The same Islam-based demonization of Jews was voiced by a young man in ‎September 2014 on official PA TV. He recited a poem that described ‎Jews as “most evil among creations… barbaric apes… wretched pigs”:‎
 

‎"O, you who were brought up on spilling blood
O, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets (i.e., Jews in Islamic tradition)
You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship
O Sons of Zion, O most evil among creations
O barbaric apes, O wretched pigs.‎
‎[Official PA TV, Sept. 12, 2014]

Under the PA Fatah leadership, Palestinian society is undergoing a major shift towards ‎radical Islam. In 2010, more than 98% of Palestinians surveyed said that religion plays ‎an important role in their lives, while less than 1% considered religion not important.” ‎‎[Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies]‎

Islamic War against Jews
An integral part of this Palestinian Islamization are the PA teachings that Islam is at ‎war with Jews. As cited above, the PA promotes hateful demonization and libels, which ‎it bolsters with religious teachings that depict Jews as Satan, monkeys, pigs and the ‎enemy of Allah. One poem that has become popular in the PA includes the words “our ‎enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail." This poem has been recited by young children and ‎adults multiple times on PA TV.


The PA promotion of demonization is integrally linked to the PA’s promotion of ‎violence and terror against Jews. The poem cited above depicting Jews as “most evil ‎among creations… barbaric apes… wretched pigs” ended with these verses motivating ‎violence against Jews: ‎
‎“As long as my heart is my Quran and my city
As long as I have my arm and my stones
As long as I am free and do not barter my cause
I will not fear your throngs
My belt is around my waist, and my rifle is on my shoulder.”‎
‎[Official PA TV, Sept. 12, 2014] ‎

To support its teaching, the PA claims that Allah sent humanity a message through Islam’s prophet Muhammad that the killing ‎and extermination of Jews is a necessary step to bring the redemption. The murder of Jews is thus elevated by the PA as a holy act in the service ‎of Allah and humanity.

In January 2012, the PA Mufti taught that the "Hour of Resurrection" can only come after ‎the extermination of Jews:
‎ ‎
PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein: “Palestine in its entirety is a revolution… ‎continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith (sayings and ‎practices attributed to Islam's Prophet Muhammad)… says: "The Hour [of ‎Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind ‎stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call: 'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, ‎there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'” [Official PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]
 

PA and Fatah religious and political leaders have cited this passage on numerous ‎occasions. ‎

Hamas enshrined this religious teaching in its charter and is “looking forward” to this ‎genocide:‎
‎"Hamas has been looking forward to implementing Allah's promise, whatever ‎time it might take. The prophet [Muhammad] said: 'The Hour (of Resurrection) ‎will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews; until the Jews hide behind rocks ‎and trees, which will cry: 0 Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come and ‎kill him!'" ‎
‎[Hamas Charter, Article 7, quoting Sahih Muslim, Book 41, Number 6985]‎

Thus, according to PA religious teaching, the killing of Jews becomes a prerequisite for ‎the fulfillment of the Islamic ideal. This belief has had a significant impact on the ‎Palestinian population. In a 2011 poll conducted by the Israel Project, 73% of ‎Palestinians said they “believe” in the Hadith that preaches that it is Islamic destiny to ‎kill the Jews.

And it is not merely the theoretical ideal to kill Jews that Palestinians support. ‎Following the murder of 11 Israelis in October - November 2014, including the ‎massacre of 4 worshippers in a synagogue and the running over of a three-month-old ‎baby and other civilians in the streets of Jerusalem, a Palestinian poll found that “80% ‎support… attempts by individual Palestinians to stab or run over Israelis in Jerusalem ‎and the rest of the West Bank.” [Public Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR), ‎Dec. 9, 2014]‎

If Palestinians are taught to dehumanize Jews as “monkeys and pigs” and are told that ‎Jews are “Allah’s enemy” whose destiny is to be exterminated by Muslims, then the ‎murder of these 11 civilians is simply part of Islam’s religious war against Jews. ‎

Islamic War against Israel ‎
In addition to the war against Jews, there is a separate religious conflict the PA ‎preaches against Israel that is defined as Ribat, an uncompromising Islamic obligation ‎to defend or liberate land said to be Islamic. Israel is considered to be Islamic land that ‎must be liberated for Allah. ‎

Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs and the Palestinian ‎Authority's Supreme Shari'ah Judge expressed this view in a speech:‎‎ ‎
‎"Al-Habbash emphasized that according to Islamic Shari'ah law, the entire land ‎of Palestine (i.e., all of Israel) is waqf (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment ‎in Islamic law) and is blessed land, and that it is prohibited to sell, bestow ‎ownership or facilitate the occupation of even a millimeter of it." ‎
‎[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 22, 2014]‎

Similarly, PA Chairman Abbas himself called on Palestinians to carry out Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Abbas' statement was broadcast 19 times in 3 days on official PA TV:
"It's not enough for us to say: 'There are those carrying out Ribat' (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It's not enough for us to say: 'The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]'. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places."
[Official PA TV, Oct. 17-19, 2014]

PA schoolbooks likewise teach Palestinian children to view the conflict with Israel as ‎Ribat, defined as: "An action related to Jihad for Allah, and it means: Being found in ‎areas where there is a struggle between Muslims and their enemies." [Islamic ‎Education, grade 12, p. 86]. ‎

Israel is stigmatized as “an enemy” existing on Islamic land and fighting Israel is part of ‎a religious war for Islam. Palestinian youth are taught in school that their conflict with ‎Israel is "one of the greatest of the Ribat, and they [Palestinians] are worthy of a great ‎reward from Allah” and that Palestinians are “in Ribat until Resurrection." [Ibid, pp.86-‎‎87].

Another indication of the success of these PA religious teachings is Palestinian ‎support for terror in the name of Islam. According to the Washington-based PEW ‎research organization, for two years in a row, support for attacking or killing civilians in ‎‎“defense of Islam” was higher among Palestinians than any other Muslim population. ‎In 2012, 68% of Palestinians justified suicide bombings against civilians “to defend ‎Islam (31% “often” and 37% “sometimes”). The percentage of Palestinians justifying ‎suicide terror to defend their religion was twice as high as in any other Muslim country ‎polled, with the nearest being Lebanon, where only 35% justified suicide terror in ‎defense of Islam. [http://pewglobal.org] In 2013, Palestinian support for “attacks on ‎civilians… to defend Islam from its enemies” was at 62% (37% “often,” 25% ‎‎“sometimes”), by far still the highest in the world.‎

The tragic conclusion is that the Palestinian Authority has adopted and is teaching its ‎people the messages of radical Islam: On the national level, PA-Islam denies Israel's ‎right to exist. On the individual level, PA-Islam denies Jews the right to life. Until these ‎ideologies and religious beliefs are changed, there will never be an honest peace ‎process.‎
Fatah supports fatwa that prohibits selling land to “the enemies”

The Council emphasized in its 168th meeting, led by [PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and [Palestinian] Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman Sheikh Muhammad Hussein, that Palestine is kharaj (i.e., taxable land in Islam) and waqf (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) land, whose lands and properties it, according to religious law, is forbidden to sell or to facilitate the transfer of ownership over to enemies... It added that anyone who cooperates with this crime conspires against the Palestinian land, cause, and people, has sold his soul to the devil, must be fought against at all levels, and his family must renounce him after the [PA] Security Forces have taken measures against him. This is so that it will constitute a lesson for anyone who thinks about relinquishing any bit of this blessed land.”

Fatah calls on Palestinian VIPs to go to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out Ribat there, in response to Jews calling to “invade” (i.e. visit) the Temple Mount  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 22, 2018
Headline: "Fatah and the prominent figures in Jerusalem are calling to come out and go up and carry out Ribat at the Al-Aqsa Mosque today"
      "The Fatah Movement called on the prominent national figures in Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the State of Palestine, to go up to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) there. This was in order to stand up against the calls from the sides of the 'herds' of extremist settlers this morning [July 22, 2018] to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque and carry out Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) ceremonies in its plazas (Jews wanted to go up to the Temple Mount on that day due to the Jewish fast day of Tisha B'Av; see note below –Ed.)"

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

Tisha B’Av - Jewish day of mourning commemorating the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem (586 BCE and 70 CE) and the forced exile of most of the Jewish people from the land of Israel.
PA Mufti: Selling land in Jerusalem and in Palestine to Israeli “infidels” is heretical, and "treason" against Allah  
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), July 10, 2018
     “[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories and blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque preacher Sheikh Muhammad Hussein emphasized the prohibition on facilitating the transfer of ownership of any part of Jerusalem and the land of Palestine to enemies.  This is in light of the occupation authorities’ latest aggressive attempts to take over Palestinian lands by discussing a bill that will allow Jews to acquire lands in the occupied West Bank.
The mufti said in the religious legal ruling: ‘The basis is that Palestine is kharaj (i.e., taxable land in Islam) and waqf (i.e., an inalienable religious endowment in Islamic law) land, and it is forbidden by religious law to sell its lands and transfer them to the enemies’ ownership, because according to religious law [Palestine] is meant for public Islamic benefit, and is not personal and private property.’ He added: ‘The transfer of ownership of territory of Islam (dar Al-Islam) to enemies is invalid, and constitutes treason against Supreme Allah and his Prophet [Muhammad], peace be upon him… Anyone who sells his land to his enemies or receives compensation for it is sinning, because anyone that sells land to enemies is facilitating the removal of Muslims from their lands, and Blessed and Supreme Allah equates him to those who fight Muslims because of their religion.’"
