An Israeli media watchdog is charging that an official Palestinian Authority (PA) video recently aired 19 times in three days implicitly calls for taking violent measures against Israeli Jews.

Days after the broadcasts, in the midst of severe Arab rioting and attacks against Jews in many areas of Jerusalem, a Hamas terrorist rammed a car onto a light rail station platform, killing two people, one of them an infant, and wounding seven others.

The video clip shows PA President Mahmoud Abbas, in a speech from October 17th, calling for Palestinians to prevent “in any way” Jews from going to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, according to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

In recent months, more and more Jewish groups and individuals have ascended to visit the walled compound – the holiest site in Judaism, which held the First and Second Temples, and now houses the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa Mosque.

However, in the video, Abbas said that the presence of Jews “defiles” the Islamic holy site and must prevented “in any way.” According to PMW, “expressions like ‘in any way’ and ‘using all means’ are common PA euphemisms for various degrees of violence and terror.”

In the video clip, Abbas proclaimed that “It’s not enough for us to say: ‘There are those carrying out Ribat‘ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It’s not enough for us to say: ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]’. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount).

“We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary,” Abbas said. “This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places,” the PA chief said, according to a broadcast aired on official PA TV between October 17 and 19.

Three-month-old Chayah Zissel Braun and Karen Yemima Mosquera were killed in the vehicular terror attack last Wednesday. On Friday, Israeli soldiers shot and killed an Arab youth who was about to hurl a firebomb at Israeli motorists just north of the city.

Additionally, Abbas’ Fatah in recent days called on its members to “all wear black clothes so that the occupation forces cannot identify young people by the color of their clothes and arrest them,” according to a post on the group’s Facebook page on October 25.

Meanwhile, the official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, joined in the hatefest, and on October 10th, published a cartoon showing an Israeli soldier “beheading” the Dome of the Rock with a sword.

PMW also noted that PA TV has twice broadcast a documentary film on the city, which shows Jews praying at the Western Wall, calling them “sin and filth.

Additionally, over the summer, Palestinian programmers in Gaza have developed a video game teaching strategy in destroying Israel, according to regional media watchdog, MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute).

A report appearing on Sky News Arabia, broadcast on October 22, said the game – whose trailer was posted online on July 6 – was aimed at developing “strategy and familiarity with weapons.”

“The idea is to develop the spirit of resistance among Palestinian boys and girls,” game developer Karam Hussein said. “This game shows young Palestinians – or in fact, all Palestinians – that mutual understandings and negotiations over plundered rights can never bring about any positive result. The language of weapons is the most effective with the Israelis.”

    How would you feel if Hamas representatives started coming you pray at the kotel?!
    Jews have plenty of places to pray, back off, don’t create more reasons to incite violence!

      If they were peaceful, and didn’t shoot anyone, they would be respected.
      In Israel they have laws giving everyone freedom of religion.
      Arabs, if they wished, could follow the rules and worship where ever they want.

    Weakness brings them to stand up high. We should never have allowed them to even think that they are in charge if that location. Its still not too late.

  • What Abbs does is not new. Since he was a first-line terrorist in the 60´s his ideas have no change much. What does surprises me is the bunch of “believes” he got, not among the arabs, but within the ranks of the UN and the Western countries. Playing Ghandi doesn´t fit quite well with his temper.

  • . As a child of holocaust survivors and one who lost most of his family, I beg you to speak out. Women are being raped, men and women and children are dying every second. They ask some to go to the right and some to the left. It is the concentration camps all over again.

    ISIS is the devil, Hitler reincarnated. Speak out now before it is too late. Share this you tube today with the media and all your contacts. As a child of holocaust survivors and one who lost most of his family, I beg you to speak out. Women are being raped, men and women and children are dying every second.

    : MR. PRESIDENT. Why did you not mention Iran in your speech at the U.N. Open your eyes and see that without boots on the ground Isis is winning. You were never in the military and do not understand combat. I am a Rabbi of a small congregation and do not have rich congregants. I ask that this you tube go viral. SO FAR THERE ARE . over..6000 HITS. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY I HAVE OF SPEAKING OUT.

    120 Muslim scholars, including the Grand Mufti of Egypt, the dean of Sharia
    and Law at al-Azhar University, director of the Fiqh Council in the US, and
    the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem published an open letter to IS leader Abu Bakr
    al-Baghdadi decrying his state’s un-Islamic behavior in three languages:
    Arabic, English and German.

    Another holocaust is possible. If it happened once it can happen again. Thank G-d we have Israel. We need to do everything possible to keep Israel militarily strong. Jews get out of Europe. There can be no compromise regarding Israel nor can we depend on the good will of others. This unfortunately is a lesson that many Jews have never learned. Never forget, never forgive never again. Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg

    ISIS is a diversion. Iran is our major threat. Throughout history horrible atrocities including cutting off heads has been committed. This is not something we have never seen. Remember the NAZIS and never forget.

    We can beat ISIS but America Israel and the free world cannot survive a Nuclear Armed Iran .A Nuclear Holocaust is the ultimate nightmare, the ultimate threat to our survival, Iran is constructing the ultimate killing machine.Rabbi Dr. Bernhard Rosenberg
