Nearly every day since Dec. 12, excluding the days around Christmas and secular New Year’s, the official Palestinian Authority daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida has published a full page of pictures of anti-Israel protests, including rioters throwing firebombs (Molotov cocktails), lit fireworks and rocks at Israelis.
The only text on the pages is a giant headline repeated each day: “We shall not retreat.” The locations of each event also appears on each picture, nearly all of which are from different Palestinian Authority cities.
One page, from Dec. 18, shows pictures of peaceful demonstrations against U.S. President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, from different countries around the world (Libya, Turkey, India, Pakistan, and Montenegro).
Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the Palestinian Authority leadership and its leading Fatah faction have been attempting to incite more violence against Israel ever since U.S. President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Following are a selection of some of the full-page photo spreads from the Palestinian Authority daily.
