Abbas Falsely Claims that Palestinian Authority Doesn’t Incite Hatred Against Jews (VIDEO)

During a speech delivered Sunday at the World Economic Forum, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas claimed that the PA does not incite to hatred and does not educate to discriminate against Judaism, but strives to “spread the culture of peace” among Palestinian Arabs.

“We don’t teach and we don’t educate our children to hate or even discriminate against any religion, be it Judaism or any other,” Abbas said.

However, Palestinian Media Watch, a watchdog group that monitors Palestinian Authority media pointed out that it has identified numerous instances in which Abbas’s claims are contradicted.

In an email to reporters, PMW says its executive director Itamar Marcus recently presented a 35 page report to members of congress about Palestinian Authority incitement.

The report documents “that US funding of the PA was supporting PA hate promotion, terror glorification, and denial of Israel’s right to exist,” says PMW. The full report can be read online here.

PMW also pointed to the following hateful videos shown on official PA TV. This one shows children being taught that Jews are “pigs” and “Allah’s enemies.”

In this recent video, Jibril Rajoub, a senior PA and Fatah leader, claims that if the Palestinians had a nuclear bomb they would have used it “this very morning” against Israel.

These are just two of the many instances that have been documented by PMW that show Abbas’s claims to be fundamentally false.

Watch a video of Abbas’ dishonest speech below:

  • Koran explicitly stated you are permitted to lie to your enemies

  • Why not send video and other irrefutable evidence to all those who attended Abbas’s speech at the World Forum? They may listen to these as antidote to distortions.

    • Ivan asked “Why not send video and other irrefutable evidence” Because the Jew haters won’t care. They hate us and Abbas is their tool.

  • One can not trust Crocodiles

  • We have seen how many times what happens to Palestinians that support piece with Israel, they don’t tend to live long. I don’t hear Mr Abbas condemning the constant missiles lobed in to Israel on a regular Basis. It is abundantly clear that the promotion of hate rid is rife, this he cannot deny, so why does he not spend much more time leading his people away from violence instead of trying to convince the World the Palestinians he leads are guiltless.

  • Who would believe anything Abbas says. He has a long track record of anti-Jewish thought. What Americans should wonder at is not the verbal confetti of Abbas but why their Obama wants to force their money, some 4 billion dollars of it, again down a black hole. It will only go into to the pockets of the autocrats that have long governed the Palestinians.

    The lies and intolerance of Islam which most Palestinian embrace will never allowed for peace with any nation or people who are of different religion. UN nation is corrupt and cover up they wrong doing in many area. Certainly is there some good thing but justice and human right are more the often ignore.

    abbas es um tremendo cara de pau

  • Abbas I know nothing I see nothing we only love to see the Jews swimming like axes with the heads in the water.
    What does one expect from these people are encouraged by some mealy mouthed western the only ethic they respect is murder.

  • You don’t have to have a degree from Harvard to now that they are full of shit.

  • The children and their parents have already been taught. The PA has now appointed a terrorist as an adviser.

  • Abbas is a documented Holocaust denier who reveres the sociopath Muhammad who PERSONALLY ( according to three hadiths) decapitated 900 UNARMED Jews in 627 of the Bani Quarayza tribe. If you took antisemitism out of PA textbooks…99% of the pages would be blank…The Koran is foundationally antisemitic..so everything Muslims learn fromthe Koran is drenched in antisemitism.

    Doesn’t the PLO leadership know when to flip to the other side of the record: the side of the truth. Since the 1960s, Fatah, the PLO, and the PA have been creating a narrative that they represent peace, teach peace, act peaceably, and respect Israel. Such is absolutely not the case. Actually, the very antithesis of such an understanding is the truth. Deceit is an accepted approach to an issue which a Muslim deems damaging either to his or her person, family, or the Qur’an; the technical term for such deceit is “taqiyah.” Radical Islam is being practiced by the majority of the so-called Palestinians. Genuine Islam would absolutely be the foundation for peaceful co-existence between Jews and Muslims. Unfortunately, a large number of the Palestinian people supports the extremely offensive teachings found in the Qur’an regarding the origin of the Jewish people as descending from pigs and apes: Sura (chapter) 7:166, 2:65, and 5:60. Indeed,a large majority of Israelis, perhaps 69%, want the Arab Initiative to succeed. The concern really lies in the Palestinian camp with some 61% against making peace with Israel. Educating Palestinian children to hate Jews perpetuates the postponement of any lasting peace. Lying about such deleterious inculcation of nefarious values merely adds fuel to the fire.
