PA TV Antisemitism: When fish in the sea fight, "the Jews are behind it"
PA TV Antisemitism:
"If a fish in the sea fights another fish
the Jews are behind it"
Jews are reason for all bad in the world:
"Humanity will never live in comfort as long as the Jews
are causing devastating corruption throughout the land.
Humanity will never live in peace or fortune or tranquility
as long as they are corrupting the land"
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
The Palestinian Authority teaches that Jews are "evil" and the source of all bad in the world. An official PA TV host and preacher of Islam explained in his weekly education program about Islam, that as long as Jews are spreading their corruption "humanity will never live in comfort." He illustrated this with an example: "An old man told me: If a fish in the sea fights with another fish, I am sure the Jews are behind it":
"Humanity will never live in comfort as long as the Jews are causing devastating corruption throughout the land. Humanity will never live in peace or fortune or tranquility as long as they are corrupting the land. An old man told me: If a fish in the sea fights with another fish, I am sure the Jews are behind it. As Allah says: ''Every time they kindled the fire of war [against you], Allah extinguished it. They strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters'' (Sura 5:64)."

Palestinian Media Watch has documented that Antisemitism is a fundamental principle of PA ideology. Antisemitic hate speech was recently voiced by PA Chairman Abbas' advisor, Mahmoud Al-Habbash, who said that throughout history Jews have represented "evil," "falsehood," "the devils" and "the satans," and accordingly Israel is "Satan's project." Islam and the Palestinians on the other hand constitute "the good" and "Allah's project":
PA Supreme Shari'ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas' advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash:
"The conflict here in Palestine between us and the criminal occupation and its criminal leaders, is a further manifestation of our trials, a further manifestation of the historic conflict between truth and falsehood, between good and evil. Throughout history, there has been a conflict between good and evil. The good is represented by the prophets and their supporters. The evil is represented by the devils and their supporters, by the satans and their supporters. We are not inventing anything new here. This is a conflict between two entities, good and evil, between two projects: Allah's project vs. Satan's project, a project connected to Allah, which is his will - true and good - and a project connected to oppression and Satanism, to Satanism and animosity, occupation and barbarism."

PA TV also recently rebroadcast a "documentary" which explains that Europe created Israel to "get rid of" the corrupt, scheming Jews.
PA TV is not the only place where Antisemitism is being taught to Palestinians. PMW documented that Antisemitic ideologies were an integral part of Islamic lessons at the Al-Aqsa Mosque last year taught by Sheikh Mughrabi. This continued weekly until PMW's exposure led to Mughrabi's arrest and indictment for inciting hatred. In one of his teachings, Mughrabi taught his students that Jews "prepare their matzah... with the blood of children." In another lesson, he explained that Jews "worship the Devil."
Significantly, PA TV has chosen the middle of the terror campaign to rebroadcast this hate speech by Hamato, which PMW reported on when it was originally broadcast in February last year.
