Palestinian Demonization of Jews Continued Throughout 2015


In a report prepared for a Jan. 13, 2016 conference session at the European Parliament, Itamar Marcus (Palestinian Media Watch) submitted ample evidence that Palestinian Arab incitement to violence against Jews continued unabated in 2015.

Since the Palestinian Authority was established, and continuing throughout 2015, the PA has systematically used antisemitism to indoctrinate young and old to hate Israelis and Jews. The PA has actively promoted religious hatred by demonizing Judaism and Jews, spreading libels that present Jews as endangering Palestinians, Arabs, and all humanity. The PA presents Jews as possessing inherently evil traits. Jews are said to be treacherous, corrupt, allied with the devil, as well as descendants of apes and pigs. In 2015, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Islam and head of PA Shari’ah courts taught on PA TV that Jews throughout history have represented “falsehood… evil… the devils and their supporters… the satans and their supporters.? Accordingly, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a conflict of “Allah's project vs. Satan's project."

The official PA daily published an op-ed saying Jews “are thirsty for blood to please their god (against the gentiles), and crave pockets full of money.? These Jewish “attributes? and traditions are presented as the unchangeable nature of Jews. These messages come from the top of the Palestinian Authority…

Palestinian Arab hatred of Jews, fostered by PA leadership, media, mosques and schools -- leading to terror -- was a major factor in Israeli pessimism about a two state solution. A large majority of Israeli Jews, according to opinion polling, believed that the Palestinian terror would continue even with the conclusion of a peace agreement.
