PA TV describes Jews as “invaders,” “evil,” “satans [who] have caused devastating corruption throughout the land of love and peace” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, July 6, 2017

Official PA TV narrator of Palestine This Morning: "Palestine - the nearest point between the heavens and the earth, and the desire of the invaders. The world has been filled with their evil, and [these] satans have caused devastating corruption throughout the land of love and peace... and the seed of Canaan ambushed them... The [Palestinian] revolution instilled hope, it played [the tune of] the struggle with words and rifles, and it sang the song of Palestine." [Song:] "My weapon has emerged. My weapon has emerged."

Al-Aqsa Calls YouTube channel, speech by Salafist preacher Ali Abu Ahmad at the Al-Aqsa Mosque

Salafist preacher Ali Abu Ahmad: "Servants of God, the Satan from the White House, [American President Donald] Trump, who does not have even the most minimal human and ethical values, will meet with the rulers of the small countries of destruction in order to talk to them about moderate Islam. Trump will be in Saudi Arabia, and afterwards will visit the Jewish entity, and afterwards the Vatican, and in this way he will visit all three religions. This means that Trump wishes to strike a blow against Islam and the Muslims by [saying] there is no hatred towards Judaism and Christianity, and starting form today we will be an example of tolerance and love and cooperation in order to strike a blow against the Muslims, who Trump calls the extremists, and we have no one but Allah to depend upon…
The Muslim prisoners in the occupation's prisons are hunger striking, while the rulers of Saudi Arabia spend millions in order to receive the head of the heretics, Trump. Servants of God, this is indeed a crusade against Islam and the Muslims. Servants of God, nation of Islam, your rulers are going out to action, but not to save you, but rather to plot against you…
The traitor from Jordan has enlisted his army, but not to liberate the destination of Allah's messenger [Muhammad's] Night Journey (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), but rather to murder Muslims in Syria, in order to please his masters…
Allah, provide us with the righteous caliphate soon, according to the prophets' custom. Allah, destroy Trump and the plotters. Allah, destroy all of the Jews."

Abbas appointed dean of schools on PA TV: Israel is a "cancerous tumor", Jews "control the money, the press, the resources"‎

Imad Hamato, appointed by PA Chairman Abbas as dean of Gaza Al-Azhar schools, host of weekly PA TV program on Islam:
"Israel has worked hard to Judaize the land, [but] it did not stop at that. [Israel] worked to realize ‎something else: the Judaization of culture, [so that] the Arab intellectual embraces the idea of ‎acceptance of Israel as a recognized body and as an entity that has a right to live. Israel, the ‎invading country, the cancerous tumor – which we have already called a cancerous tumor in ‎the past – many intellectuals today talk about coexistence and offering our hands in peace, and ‎‎[say] Israel is part of the region. The noblest Arabs in terms of their Arabness, were those who ‎spoke up and said: ‘Israel does not exist!’ Those who did not say that were ostracized. Now, ‎whoever says that Israel should exist is met with approval... They [the Jews] are usurers. See, ‎the usury money and usurer banks, those who control the money in the world can be counted ‎on one hand - a few individuals - and all of them belong to the Jewish world. They control the ‎media, the money, the press, the resources, the plans.‎"

Instead of dealing with health, education, society, and arming [themselves] against the enemy - they will be dealing with internal disputes.”

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."

Wretched is the example of the people who deny the signs of Allah. And Allah does not guide the wrongdoing people." [Quran, 62:5, Sahih International translation]

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Advisor on Strategic Affairs Dr. Husam Zomlot: “If you visit the website of the government of Israel, you will clearly see their plan for Jerusalem. This is a legitimization operation that begins with dismantling - dismantling from above [by] landing a blow on the leadership [of the Palestinians in Jerusalem] which they began in the 1980s and 1990s, closing the Orient House (i.e., the PLO headquarters in Jerusalem), and what happened with Martyr (Shahid) Faisal Al-Husseini (i.e., senior Fatah and PLO terror leader in the 1970s). [They also began] dismantling from below, namely [through] unemployment, young men, drugs, etc., and they are doing this morning and night. In other words, the satanic power that is directed against our people in Jerusalem is unprecedented in human history, every morning – millions of dollars, hundreds of millions, are poured in to dismantle and to weaken [it].”

PA daily op-ed: "Ominous" Balfour Declaration was created by Jewish money and imperialism 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 28, 2017
Headline: “One people not split into groups”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

        “We are in the period of the 100th anniversary of the ominous Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), which was created thanks to Jewish capital and the imperialistic wave rampant in that period, which acted freely with the inheritance of the sick man - as the Turkish Caliphate was called. I have very carefully followed the conferences that were held almost simultaneously in Tehran and Istanbul… and both of them, the Shi’ite one in Tehran and the Sunni one in Istanbul, attempted to play the Palestinian card, while the Palestinian people stands united and is not at all interested in these conferences.”

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

Fatah Commissioner of Mobilization and Organization in the West Bank and PLO Central Council member Jamal Muhaisen: “We will never agree to a state being established on the basis of religion. A state such as this will be the height of bigotry , for [religion] is a divine message, and is not nationalism. As the religion of Islam and the Christian religion, so too the Jewish religion – it has no homeland. This is a divine message, and therefore we recognize it, and we do not recognize it as nationalism.”

Palestinian woman echoes Palestinian leaders: Promised Land = Land where Jews will be gathered to be exterminated

The woman’s message is repeating both Fatah and Hamas leaders' interpretations of Islam:

Member of Fatah Central Committee Abbas Zaki: "These Israelis have no belief, no principles. They are an advanced instrument of evil... I believe that Allah, will gather them so we can kill them."  [Official PA TV, March 12, 2014]
Hamas religious official Muhammad Salah Abu Rajab: "Here are the Zionists, who have gathered from all around. They occupy and usurp Jerusalem and its environs, and so the promise of Allah is realized: 'We will bring you forth in [one] gathering' (Quran, Sura 17:104) so that it will be easier to slaughter and kill you."  [Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), Aug. 22, 2014]

PA official: Jews on Temple Mount “defile” the Al-Aqsa Mosque, attack the Jews if they continue to “Judaize Jerusalem”  
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Feb. 15, 2017
Headline: “Abu Al-Amarin: The crimes that the settlers are committing are a systematic policy”

“Director-General of the Jerusalem Department in the [PA] Ministry of Religious Affairs Abu Al-Amarin emphasized that the Israeli crimes that the settlers and extremist groups are perpetrating are a systematic policy and precise plans that the occupation government, led by right-wing extremist [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu, is conducting in order to Judaize Jerusalem and empty it of its [Arab] residents…
He noted that the Israeli invasions and the Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) ceremonies within the Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., on the Temple Mount) herald a large and unprecedented danger, and said: ‘If the settlers and the extremist groups do not stop this, they will find their deaths at the hands of the Muslims there, who will not allow the enemy to harm the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to defile it, even if it costs them their lives.’”

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.

“The blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque was witness yesterday [Feb. 6, 2017] from the morning hours to consecutive invasions by groups of Jewish settler gangs, which held Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) prayers there amid reinforced protection by the occupation’s special forces. All of this was while tension prevailed at the mosque, and amid the protest calls of ‘Allahu Akbar’ (i.e., “Allah is greatest”) that were heard from the worshippers against the desecration of the blessed mosque.”

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.

Hamas leader responds to accusations of Antisemitism: We’re not against Jews, we’re against Zionists, “who [are] occupying our lands”

Al-Jazeera English program UpFront, interview with senior Hamas leader Osama Hamdan

Reporter Mehdi Hasan: “You and many other Hamas officials often say that you’re in conflict with the Israelis, and it’s a political conflict, that you’re opposed to Zionism, not Judaism. You often say it’s not a religious war, you’re not Antisemitic, you’re not against Jews. And yet the Hamas charter is filled with Antisemitic references to Jews being behind Communism, being behind World War I, World War II. It endorses the famous Antisemitic conspiracy, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a global Jewish conspiracy. Aren’t you embarrassed by that kind of language? Why not take it out of the charter, to show good faith, to show that you’re not all Antisemitic?”
Senior Hamas Leader Osama Hamdan: “When we talk about the Jews we are not against their religion, we are not against their beliefs, we are not against them as a people who believes. In fact, we believe in Musa (i.e., Moses), we believe that he was a prophet, like Muhammad, and we believe they are the same. So we are against the one who is occupying our lands. We are against the ones who is occupying our cities, villages.”

Headline: “Netanyahu, the fox of Israel, has recognized the ISIS-ization of the world!”

Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, regular columnist for the official PA daily

“Perhaps [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu is relying on the fact that in the age of [US President-elect] Donald Trump the countries will change their way of dealing with the issues of conflict in the world, and particularly with the issue of Palestine, which has been proven to Netanyahu to remain the central issue despite the world’s dealing with new issues. Perhaps the expression ‘the final breaths of the world of yesterday’ (sic., Netanyahu on Jan. 15, 2017, called the Paris conference ‘the final throes of the world of yesterday’) is nothing but a confirmation of prior knowledge regarding the secrets of ‘Trump’s revolution’ against the international laws and bodies, and the beginning of humanity’s journey back to the laws of barbarity, or what can be described as the ‘ISIS-ization of the world,’ which means the cancellation of all of the red lines that protect the rights of man, and the raising and imposing of the law of the jungle. In other words, [it is] the birth of ‘the barbaric man’ in the 21st century as a result of cross-breeding between the concepts of ISIS and the Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) teachings. This is because each of them has adopted the slogan ‘the sword of God is in my hand’ in order to satisfy his desire to spill the blood of the other, and to take control of him by force.”

Posted text: “The anniversary of the death as a Martyr (Shahid) of quick-responding Raed Al-Karmi
Jan. 14 of every year is the anniversary of the death as a Martyr of quick-responding heroic commander Raed Sa’id Al-Karmi ‘Abu Filastin’ from the city of Tulkarem, and of the outstanding founding commanders of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing) in the West Bank districts…
He loved the game ‘Jews and Arabs,’ a game that children of the neighborhood would play. He always played the role of the Arab who, with his simple weapon, attacked the treacherous Jew who occupied his homeland and settled in it…
Fear began to permeate the ranks of the occupation army when Al-Karmi succeeded in killing approximately 12 Israeli soldiers and civilians (sic., 9), and thus a decision was made to assassinate him by the most senior leader of the [Zionist] entity state, criminal [former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon…
Our heroic Martyr Al-Karmi died from an explosive that the Zionist Israeli Security Agency planted in the wall of the cemetery, next to which he passed on his way to his wife in the eastern part of the city of Tulkarem on Jan. 14, 2002."
