Demonization of Jews/Israelis

Demonization of Jews/Israelis
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. The PA presents Jews as possessing inherently evil traits. Jews are said to be treacherous, corrupt, deceitful and unfaithful by nature. These Jewish “attributes” and traditions are presented as the unchangeable nature of Jews. Forgeries and fiction masquerading as history are used to document and support the libel that Judaism is in essence racist and evil. Jews are said to be planning and executing heinous crimes, including burning Palestinians in ovens, murder, using prisoners for Nazi-like experiments, and more. If unchecked, these crimes constitute a mortal danger, not only to all Muslims and Arabs but to all of humanity.

The PA assigns responsibility to the Jews for all the problems in the world: Wars, conflicts and civil wars are all said to be triggered by Jews. Indeed, the oppression suffered by Jews throughout history is presented as the legitimate response of nations seeking revenge for the injury caused them by the Jews living among them. The creation of the State of Israel is said to have been a European plot, in order to be rid of their Jews and save Europe from the evil of Jewish presence in their countries.

The following are examples of Palestinian demonization:

PLO official: Israeli MPs' statements against terrorist Marwan Barghouti are "monstrous," "similar to the claims of Nazi leaders," and "from them wafts a smell of hate, racism, and corruption"

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." (PMW has found no basis for these claims –Ed.)

Abbas-appointed dean of Islamic schools: “Israel’s… war against the Arabs and Muslims is through sex mania… drugs… to destroy… our children’s values” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Apr. 14, 2017

Imad Hamato, appointed by PA Chairman Abbas as dean of Gaza Al-Azhar schools, host of weekly PA TV program on Islam:
"Our conflict today between us and Israel is the conflict between spirit and body. Israel’s global media has expanded, and its war against the Arabs and Muslims is through sex mania which it distributes globally. Israel had to use this sex mania, as we mentioned in a previous lesson, in order to destroy the spirit of Arabs and Muslims... The Jews, according to our religion, believe only in the body... What has Israel given to the world in our times, aside from moral corruption and corrupt values, aside from the use of drugs and pills? I said in a previous lesson that the CIA has a unit called the Unit for Creating the Global Mood. They look at a map: ‘‘What is appropriate for Gaza, or Jordan, or Syria? Tramadol pills (i.e., pain killers)? Mood enhancers? Hallucinatory substances?” They are produced in India, sent to Israel, and distributed in Sinai. Afterwards they are spread in the region, in order to destroy what remains of our children’s values."

PA Education Minister: Israel is deliberately killing Palestinian children every day

Headline: “Saidam: Palestine”

“[PA Minister of Education and Higher Education Sabri] Saidam emphasized the right of the children of Palestine to a secure education and a free and dignified life, far from the fear of killing and destruction…
Saidam condemned the despicable crimes that the occupation army and extremist settlers are committing against the children of Palestine, when they intentionally and directly kill them every day, and prevent them from living and obtaining an education. He noted that the education community has lost many of its children as a result of the occupation’s violations, in addition to hundreds of children who have been wounded and permanently disabled.”

Some of the people are still not convinced of this to this day, as if it were a hidden matter. Whoever thinks that the settler government in Israel wants a satisfied Palestinian people is mistaken. At best, the Palestinian Security [Forces] still have no control over the borders, and drugs are goods that can be transferred across the border. Therefore, the one responsible for them being smuggled and brought in is the one who controls the borders, and that is first of all the Israeli occupation… We see, and everyone with intelligence knows and sees, that there are local issues that the occupation is responsible for and which are being carried out with external funding.'"

[He also warned against] the crimes that are being committed, which reflect the Israeli occupation government’s way, and against the violations that harm all areas of life: arrests in the ranks of the young people and assassinations on the ground, the latest of which was the assassination of young 17-year-old Ahmed Ghazal (i.e., terrorist, stabbed 3) in the area of Al-Wad Street, which leads to the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

PA Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Israeli soldiers carry out "extrajudicial murders... in order to amuse themselves" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 3, 2017
Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls to deal with the Israeli crimes before the national and international courts”
     “The [PA] Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the summary executions and bloody chases that the occupation’s soldiers and police officers are committing against Palestinian residents in the streets of occupied Jerusalem, in the alleys, and at the death checkpoints at the entrances to the Palestinian cities, towns, villages, and refugee camps. The latest incident was the execution of young 17-year-old Ahmed Zaher Ghazal (i.e., terrorist, stabbed 3) from Nablus in Jerusalem. The ministry said in a statement yesterday [April 2, 2017]: ‘As is its custom, the government of Israel is hurrying to justify the extrajudicial murders on the pretext that a “stabbing attempt” was carried out (sic., 3 Israelis were stabbed) – which is currently placed under great doubt after many of these claims turned out to be false. This is particularly so in light of the fact that the government of Israel gave the Israeli soldiers the authority to shoot any Arab that they suspect or feel endangers them, even if he does not threaten their lives. As a result of this, every Arab has turned into a shooting target at any given moment and any place, according to the consideration of the occupation’s soldiers who are deployed throughout the Palestinian territories. This has led to a doubling of cases of summary executions, particularly because these soldiers feel that they have official immunity that allows them to shoot any Palestinian… It is as if from their perspective this is just a game from which they lose nothing. Sometimes it turns into a game of a challenge or bet between the occupation’s soldiers themselves in order to amuse themselves and pass the time, or out of an ambition for some sort of promotion.’”

In a statement he presented a series of humanitarian demands connected to improving the living conditions of all the male and female prisoners who are in the prisons.
Fifteen years after he was kidnapped and arrested by the occupation forces, Barghouti has understood that the occupation government is trying to decide the battle against the prisoners in the prisons by controlling them and turning them into mere ghosts and numbers, and by negating their symbolism as legal fighters and freedom prisoners who have fought and sacrificed for freedom, dignity, and independence…"

"The [PA] Ministry of Information said that occupation [Israeli] Minister of War (sic., Defense) Avigdor Liberman’s declaration of the [PLO] Palestinian National Fund as a terrorist organization is the height of insolence and proof of political foolishness.
The ministry said in a statement: 'It would be more fitting for Liberman and all of the politicians in Israel to acknowledge that the occupation is an act that exceeds all terror, and that it is the spiritual forefather of extremism and racism.'
The ministry said that it thinks that Liberman's stupidity constitutes a continuation of the occupation state’s evasion of recognizing international law, and a desperate attempt to incite the world against the PLO and its mechanisms."

On March 16, 2017, Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor Liberman declared the Palestinian National Fund of the PLO a terrorist organization. The fund manages financial aid received by the PLO from different sources. The Israeli Ministry of Defense declare the fund a terror organization due to the fund's "massive support for elements responsible for committing severe acts of terrorism against Israel," and stated that the fund serves "as a significant financial pipeline for tens of millions of shekels that are transferred on a monthly basis to security prisoners held in Israel for committing acts of terrorism and to members of their families," and that "the fund also supports family members of terrorists who were wounded and killed while perpetrating acts of terrorism against Israel."
