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:
Jews/Israelis are evil

Abbas speech to UN Security Council demonizes Israel, slams US, but proposes international peace plan

This transcript of PA Chairman Abbas' speech before the UN Security Council on Feb. 20, 2018 was published by Wafa, the official Palestinian Authority news agency, on Feb. 20, 2018.

"Seventy years have passed since Palestine’s Nakba, from which 6 million Palestine refugees continue to suffer from the cruelty of exile and loss of human security. They continue to wander the world after the loss of their peaceful and stable lives in their homeland. They are part of the 13 million Palestinians, whose country has not yet been recognized as full Member State of the United Nations, despite the numerous resolutions reaffirming their right to self-determination and statehood on their national land.
We are the descendants of the Canaanites that lived in the land of Palestine 5,000 years ago and continuously remained there to this day. Our great people remain rooted in their land. The Palestinian people built their own cities and homeland and made contributions to humanity and civilization witnessed by the world. They established institutions, schools, hospitals, cultural organizations, theaters, libraries, newspapers, publishing houses, economic organizations, businesses and banks, with wide regional and international influence.
All of this existed before and after the Balfour Declaration issued by the British Government in 1917, a declaration by which those who did not own, giving to those who had no right. The British Government bears responsibility for the catastrophic consequences inflicted on the Palestinian people as a result..."

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on an outbreak of rabies, hosting Director of the Veterinary Services in the PA Ministry of Agriculture Dr. Iyad Al-Adra

Director of the Veterinary Services in the PA Ministry of Agriculture Dr. Iyad Al-Adra: “We know about the existence of the disease within the Green Line (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel; the Green Line is the ceasefire line between Israel and the neighboring Arab countries, 1949-1967) for more than four months. We are monitoring this through direct contact with the Israeli Veterinary Services. We are monitoring the development of the disease and the map of the spread of the disease with them… The Israeli Veterinary Services of course spread immunizations against the disease with planes in the areas under their control, especially the remote areas, which has caused a little panic among some of our brothers, the [Palestinian] citizens, that they are throwing poison at us. But truthfully, we clarified the matter- what is being thrown is just a special immunization for the struggle against rabies among the wild animals.”

PA daily editorial accuses Israel and US of racism, calls VP Pence “crazy”

Excerpt of an editorial of the official PA daily

     “The Israeli democracy of oppression and racism made US Vice President [Mike] Pence happy when it forcibly removed the Arab members of the Israeli Parliament – who were protesting Pence’s visit and his [US] President [Donald] Trump’s decision to recognize Palestinian and Arab Jerusalem as Israel’s capital – from the Israeli Parliament plenum! (After they disrupted Pence's speech; see note below –Ed.)...
The US is today forming the alliance of baring teeth and arrogance against the Palestinian people with Israel and the racist and extremist right-wing. Through this exclusionary democracy… [the US] is striving to realize the plans of this evil alliance… With the same arrogance and baring teeth, Pence declares that peace is more possible now after Trump’s decision on Jerusalem! On this matter we say to Pence what the people of our country say: ‘A crazy person speaks and an intelligent person listens.’ What peace is possible, Vice President Pence, without Jerusalem being the capital of the State of Palestine? […] The racism of the occupation and its ally the US will not be a decree of fate under any circumstances.”

Op-ed in PA daily mocks US, Trump, and his mannerisms 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 20, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “This is America”
     “This is America, more Jewish than the ultra-Orthodox Jews… This is America – more Zionist than ‘rebellion’ (see note below –Ed.), the hilltop youth, the herds of settlers, and the execution-without-trial organizations, which openly say that a good Palestinian is a dead Palestinian…
[US President] Donald Trump – despite his promises, and despite his ridiculous theatrical [hand] gestures when he stands in front of cameras and the stupid pantomime movements that he does – has brought nothing new.”

Rebellion” refers to a small group of young Jews in the West Bank, which the Israeli Security Agency (ISA) referred to as “rebellion” in 2015 when it claimed they were planning to topple the Israeli government by sparking violence. Several were held in administrative detention for months and later released without evidence or indictments having been submitted against them.

Headline: “The [PA] Ministry of Information: The Al-Buraq [Wall] is part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and the US can give Israel the White House”
       “The [PA] Ministry of Information said that US Vice President Mike Pence’s decision to make an official visit to the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall of the Temple Mount) is a violation of international law, a further step in the provocation of the world, and a continuation of the blind bias in favor of the occupation.  The ministry emphasized that the Al-Buraq Wall was, still is, and will remain Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic as UNESCO (UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) determined when it rejected any historical connection between the Jews and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., the Temple Mount) and this wall. The ministry said that [US] President [Donald] Trump and his Vice [President] Pence can give Israel the White House in its entirety or give it the capital, Washington. But to do as they please with a land, history, present, and future that do not belong to them is support for terror and encouragement to commit war crimes and ethnic cleansing against the members of our people, particularly in Jerusalem.”

Abbas: Jews\Israelis are skilled “in falsifying history and religion”, the Torah says the Canaanites were in Jerusalem since before Abraham until today, but the city should be "open city for all religions"

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “Indeed [we], women and men, believe in our right and Allah’s promise to us that this sanctified city [Jerusalem] – since the Canaanite Jebusites established it 5,000 years ago – was not and will not be anything but the capital of our independent state, and [that] sovereignty in it [belongs to] the State of Palestine. By the way, I don’t like to argue about history or religion because none are more skilled than they (i.e., Israelis/Jews) are in falsifying history and religion. But if we read the Torah, it says that the Canaanites were here before our lord Abraham, and their presence has not stopped since that time (sic, there is no connection between the Canaanites and today's Palestinians) – this is in the Torah – until this very day. But if they want to falsify, they will divert the words from their place... We want it [Jerusalem] as an open city to all the members of the Heavenly religions, that they may practice their worship in it. If we will take East Jerusalem – let the Muslim, the Christian, and the Jew come and practice their faith in complete freedom, there is no obstacle.”

Official PA TV host: “Mr. Adnan Ghaith, much was said at the international [UN] Security Council in its urgent meeting, and much of it pointed to how this [American decision] feeds the fanaticism, tension, and extremism in the region. Israel, as a terror state, is the highest form of terror...”
Fatah Revolutionary Council member Adnan Ghaith: “Certainly, what the Israeli occupation is doing against our Palestinian people in general and in occupied Jerusalem is the height of terror. In other words, the one that murders innocents in the streets and roads, the one that closes the places of worships to the worshippers, the one that allows the settlers and the patrons of the settlers to burn children and attack homes and property, the one that does all this- is carrying out ethnic cleansing against the rightful inhabitants, the owners of the land – this is the height of terror. But let me say the truth – Israel, in other words the Israeli occupation government, would not dare to continue with this terror if not for the American cover... Think that today, when the position of the US supports this Israeli occupation, we therefore say to the US: ‘In the eyes of the Palestinian people and the eyes of our people in Jerusalem you have become partners of this occupation and its crimes, its terror, and its violence against our people and against the Palestinian people.’ If there is terror in the world, its foundation is the Israeli occupation government.

Fatah cartoon shows anti-Semitic depiction of a Jew receiving the Balfour Declaration as a check with map of "Palestine" on it

Cartoon posted on Falestinona, the website of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon

Headline: “‘The Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)’ – The greatest crime known to humanity, and its consequences and effects still exist after 100 years”

Text on check: “1917
To: The Zionist Organization
Amount: The land of Palestine
Signed: Arthur Balfour”

The cartoon shows former British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour shaking hands with an ultra-Orthodox Jew with a big nose and a Star of David on his hat, who is wearing army pants and boots. Balfour is handing the Jew a large check with the British flag on it and the PA map of “Palestine” that presents all of Israel as “Palestine” together with the PA areas, with the Gaza Strip and West Bank outlined.

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.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.
