Official PA Daily Reports that Murders of Jews Brings Joy

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

The official Palestinian Authority daily has been telling its readers how much their constituents are overjoyed at seeing photos of the bodies of murder victims of Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translated and published the report of the official Palestinian Authority daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida.

The article stated that the photos of the bodies of the couple, who were killed in front of their four children in the family vehicle, bring “joy” to Palestinians who see the killings as “heroic.”

The new wave of Arab terror has prompted American Jewish leaders to turn to President Barack Obama, who has held a stony silence in the wave of escalating violence.

The State Dept. has issued the usual stale expressions of “concern while urging “all parties” to try to restore calm, in effect placing Arab attacks and Israeli retaliation as equal weights on the administration’s scale of justice.

World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder singled out Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Wednesday, and said:

We call on the Palestinian Authority and President Mahmoud Abbas to do everything in their power to rein in these extremists who are bent on wreaking havoc on the peace process.

The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations issued a statement reminding that the Obama administration “provides hundreds of millions of dollars of funding each year to the Palestinian Authority.”

The leaders of the organization added:

When Abbas declares that the Temple Mount is ‘ours’ and says the same of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, he denies the existence of the two Temples and all the Judeo-Christian ties and heritage. Urging Palestinians to rise up to protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque leads to the inevitable consequence of confrontation and violence.

We know that President Abbas can impact the ‘Palestinian street’ when he wants to. His failure to do so should bring a cut in funding and the isolation of Abbas until he takes concrete steps….

No society would or should have to tolerate such acts against woman, children, and men attacked while driving, visiting malls, attending religious services, or going about their daily lives.

The Conference also criticized American media for dismissing rock terror with the description of the attackers as “stone-throwing youths” and explained:

These are deadly boulders that have killed and maimed many. In addition, weapons taken from soldiers and knives have been used in recent attacks that took lives and wounded many. At the same time, Israel’s restrained response is often described in exaggerated terms, with the media equating those trying to uphold law and order with those engaged in terror and violence.

Official PA Media Calls Huckabee ‘Inane Creature’ and ‘Wicked Man’

Saturday, August 29th, 2015

The Palestinian Authority did not bite the hand that feeds it. It amputated it, but the United States still finds a way to nourish anti-American hatred.

Its official daily has slandered the United States as a country that “enslaves Hispanics,” and it libeled Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee as a “wicked, despicable man,” according to a Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) translation and publication of the report.

Huckabee visited Israel two weeks ago and said that all of Judea and Samaria belongs to Israel.

Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, the official Palestinian Authority daily, responded with an op-ed written by its former editor-in-chief, Hafez Al-Barghouti, who writes regularly for the daily.

Following are excerpts of the translation provided by PMW from the article published in Arabic, beginning with trashing Donald Trump as a “swindler.”

After the statements of the aged teenager, the swindler and realtor, the billionaire, the rabid [Donald] Trump, in which he called to transfer the Palestinian people from the [West] Bank to Puerto Rico, another Republican candidate, Mike Huckabee, made a pilgrimage to Israel to emphasize his support for settlement in the West Bank.

This inane creature…said that it is not possible to push the peace process as long as there is incitement in Palestinian schools. This jellylike man ignores the burning of children, as if those who burned them, the settlers, learned the foundations of good ethics and human dignity….

This wicked, despicable man [Huckabee] came to protect them and their settlements, as if to provide them with matches to practice their hobby of burning, blocking roads, chopping down trees, and harassment of the rooted Canaanite Palestinian, who carved its letters in the stones of this land before any religion.

Huckabee is also a settler, and it is possible that the US is the biggest settlement country, since it was established on the ruins of the original inhabitants, wiped out millions of them, enslaved millions of Blacks, and today enslaves millions of Hispanics in the same manner.

Barghouti concluded by suggesting that Trump and Huckabee might “carry the genes of settlement and racism and haven’t yet gotten rid of them.

Congressional Research Service wrote in July 2014:

Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed approximately $5 billion in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign  aid.



Gadhafi’s Mother Was Jewish, his Protocol Chief Says

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

Muammar Gadhafi’s mother was Jewish, the late Libyan leader’s chief of protocol Nuri al-Samara told Al-Hayat.

Last year, a 76-year-old Jewish resident of Netanya told Maariv that Gadhafi was her cousin.

“My grandmother converted to Islam but never forgot her roots,” Gita Boaron told Maariv at the time. “She would come to visit us, give my mother money and say ‘give to the synagogue, donate to the Jews.'”
