JERUSALEM – The Palestinian Authority continues to demonize Israel, libeling it as behaving like the Nazis in its treatment of Palestinians.

The Palestinian media Watch (PMW) has exposed op-eds that have appeared recently in the Hayat Al-Jadida, the official PA daily, in which Israel was accused of “enthusiastically imitating everything the Nazis did to them” and Zionism was said to be based on “racism,” “arrogance” and the “Masada Complex.” One article also stated that Israel built its security fence not in response to Palestinian terror attacks, but because of Israel’s “Jewish ghetto worldview.”


Regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida Yahya Rabah wrote on April 14th that:

“The Palestinian people in Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip has been enduring suffering on a daily basis – [suffering] which has reached the level of torture, ethnic cleansing and constant aggression on the part of the Israeli occupation – an occupation that is abnormal, strange, and worse than all [other] experiences of occupation in human history. This is because the Israeli occupiers, who ‘worship the gods (i.e., imitate the ways) of their enemies,’ are testing everything they experienced from those who persecuted them [in the past] on the Palestinian people – [only] ten times worse. They enthusiastically imitate everything the Nazis did to them and everything others did to them… and carry this out with hatred, racism, and in an indiscriminate way against the Palestinians!”

Rabah’s conclusion is that the proper response to such unimaginable atrocities is: “the bare minimum the Palestinian leadership can do is sign the international conventions and agreements,” referring to the 15 international conventions PA head Abbas began to join as a move to generate further leverage in the failed talks with Israel.

Dr. As’ad Abd Al-Rahman, also regular columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on April 14th that:

“The leaders of the Zionist state, from their first prime minister, David Ben Gurion, to the present day, from the right to the left, agree that historical Palestine is ‘Israel’s homeland’… All this points to an Israeli fortress mentality, which is faithful to the Zionist heritage, which is based on racism, arrogance and the lie of ‘the chosen people’, and based on the ‘Masada complex’. Israel and peace are opposites. This [Israel] is a state that surrounds itself with physical and psychological concrete walls that are ingrained in the Jewish mentality, which is based on rejection and fear of the other, and which sees the solution in expanding the construction of the fortress walls. Even the racist separation fence, in addition to being a kind of ‘apartheid’, recalls the tradition of the Jewish ghetto in Europe. Therefore, one can say that Israel’s recourse to building the fence stems from reasons connected to the internal psychological structure of the Israeli character, which was formed in the shadow of the Jewish ghetto worldview.”

PMW further reported that senior PA official Jibril Rajoub recently referred to Israel as “this criminal, fascist, Nazi occupation ” on official PA TV, and he subsequently stated that Hitler “could have learned” from Israel “about the concentration camps, the extermination camps.”

Asked about the current situation, Rajoub stated: “What’s worse? Do you think we are living in Sweden and have something to lose? We are living under a racist and fascist occupation. I’m telling you, if Hitler had come [here], he would have learned from them how to oppress humans and learned from them about concentration camps, extermination camps.”

Rajoub is considered as a possible successor to current PA head Abbas.



  1. If so , that is sad why lower yourself to that level! Two wrongs do make it right !

  3. When Muslims or Christians get the learning opportunity to have the same percentage by population of their world populations suffer death camps and murdered individuals as Jews have then they may earn the right to compare. Until then only meaningless sh*t comes out of their mouths regarding the Shoa. Sew up Jibril Rajoub’s mouth until at least everyone in his family is murdered systematically.

  4. Canaanites are known to be the earliest population that inhabited Palestine who lived in the land around 3rd millennium BC. The 2nd millennium saw the area taken over by Pharaonic Egypt and their rule was weakened by new invaders, who included the Hebrews from the Semitic tribes of Mesopotamia and a group of Aegean people from Indo-European stock, the Philistines. The country was given the name of “Philistine” because of their Philistine inhabitants.

  5. The Israelis were mistaken ever to play along with this charade.

    “A Tour and Census of Palestine Year 1695: No sign of Arabian names or Palestinians,”

    Not one settlement in the Land of Israel has a name that is of Arabic origin.
    Most of the settlement names originate in the Hebrew, Greek, Latin or Roman languages. In fact, till today, except to Ramlah, not one Arabic settlement has an original Arabic name. Till today, most of the settlements names are of Hebrew or Greek origin, the names distorted to senseless Arabic names. There is no meaning in Arabic to names such as Acco (Acre), Haifa, Jaffa, Nablus, Gaza, or Jenin and towns named Ramallah, El Halil and El-Kuds (Jerusalem) lack historical roots or Arabic philology. In 1696, the year Relandi toured the land, Ramallah, for instance, was called Bet’allah (From the Hebrew name Beit El) and Hebron was called Hebron (Hevron) and the Arabs called Mearat HaMachpelah El Chalil, their name for the Forefather Abraham.

    2. Most of the land was empty, desolate.
    Most of the land was empty, desolate, and the inhabitants few in number and mostly concentrate in the towns Jerusalem, Acco, Tzfat, Jaffa, Tiberius and Gaza. Most of the inhabitants were Jews and the rest Christians. There were few Muslims, mostly nomad Bedouins. Nablus, known as Shchem, was exceptional, where approximately 120 people, members of the Muslim Natsha family and approximately 70 Shomronites, lived.

    In the Galilee capital, Nazareth, lived approximately 700 Christians and in Jerusalem approximately 5000 people, mostly Jews and some Christians.

    The interesting part was that Relandi mentioned the Muslims as nomad Bedouins who arrived in the area as construction and agriculture labor reinforcement, seasonal workers.

    In Gaza for example, lived approximately 550 people, fifty percent Jews and the rest mostly Christians. The Jews grew and worked in their flourishing vineyards, olive tree orchards and wheat fields (remember Gush Katif?) and the Christians worked in commerce and transportation of produce and goods. Tiberius and Tzfat were mostly Jewish and except of mentioning fishermen fishing in Lake Kinneret — the Lake of Galilee — a traditional Tiberius occupation, there is no mention of their occupations. A town like Um el-Phahem was a village where ten families, approximately fifty people in total, all Christian, lived and there was also a small Maronite church in the village (The Shehadah family).

    3. No Palestinian heritage or Palestinian nation.
    The book totally contradicts any post-modern theory claiming a “Palestinian heritage,” or Palestinian nation. The book strengthens the connection, relevance, pertinence, kinship of the Land of Israel to the Jews and the absolute lack of belonging to the Arabs, who robbed the Latin name Palestina and took it as their own.

    In Granada, Spain, for example, one can see Arabic heritage and architecture. In large cities such as Granada and the land of Andalucía, mountains and rivers like Guadalajara, one can see genuine Arabic cultural heritage: literature, monumental creations, engineering, medicine, etc. Seven hundred years of Arabic reign left in Spain an Arabic heritage that one cannot ignore, hide or camouflage. But here, in Israel there is nothing like that! Nada, as the Spanish say! No names of towns, no culture, no art, no history, and no evidence of Arabic rule; only huge robbery, pillaging and looting; stealing the Jews’ holiest place, robbing the Jews of their Promised Land. Lately, under the auspices of all kind of post modern Israelis — also hijacking and robbing us of our Jewish history.

  6. These Pallystinians will go to any Gutter level to get ,what they want, They Lie to the International community, to their Own, They Beg for International Subsidies,to fill their Corrupt pockets,and all the while stealing those funds, or paying their Murdering “Martyres “and their Families,for crimes of blood purpotrated on Israelis. They Steal and Invent a “History” that was never theirs.and what they accuse Israel of,, they are doing to their Own Population.
    But hey,, If the International Community Believes them,, why should they not continue? This is who they are, this is their life,,,,,,this is what they do.Nu Mak La-asot?
