More virulent anti-Semitism and calls on Palestinian state TV for getting rid of Israel

If you’re going to indict a country in the Middle East for being an “apartheid State”, the last one you’d say would be Israel. Palestine is far more apartheidish, though I don’t like to use a word specific for a period of South African history.  Jews can’t live in Palestine, although Muslims can live in Israel as citizens, there are of course no Jews governing Palestine, though there are Muslim Arabs in the Israeli Knesset, and the national media of Palestine constantly spews the most virulent hatred toward Jews and Israel. It’s not just criticism of the Israeli government, either, but demands for the extirpation of the country and its engulfment by Palestine.

What’s even worse is the propagandizing of Palestinian children in schools and on state media: making them from a very young age hate Israel and Jews, and turning them into potential “martyrs”. To quote the song from South Pacific:

You have got to be taught to hate and fear
Day after day, year after year
You have got to be drummed in your dear little ear
You’ve got to be carefully taught

You have got to be taught before it’s too late
Before you are six, or seven or eight
To hate all the people your relatives hate
You’ve got to be carefully taught.

Needless to say, none of this kind of stuff is on Israeli television. But of course the Palestine-loving Left doesn’t care about these facts. I wonder what they’d say when confronted with the videos. Well, for those with an open mind, let’s have a look at a few recent clips from PA TV, the official television channel of the Palestinian Authority. These come from Palestinian Media Watch (PMW); and all notes below are from its website.

A Palestinian girl calls for war in a show just this month. (The song appears to be her own.)

Palestinian girl Raghad: “All my Arabness calls me to vengeance and liberation…
Thousands of prisoners… call to this great nation and call to millions and say to them:
To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist’s soul
and raise the Palestinian banner in the world’s sky
And strengthen my word that goes on:
Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian.”

Official PA TV host of The Best Home: “Bravo, bravo! You are very talented.”

A childrens-show television host (the same one above) calls for the destruction of Israel (show in 2015):

Puppet Marwan:‎ “How beautiful is the sea and the view. Director, take a shot of it. ‎This is Tel Aviv. Take a look. It was named Tel Aviv after Jaffa was occupied. Can you ‎believe it? Jaffa was here and it became Tel Aviv…‎”

PA TV host:‎ “Good for you, Marwan, you went to see Jaffa and had fun there… My ‎friends, I am telling you that for sure Jaffa, and not only Jaffa but also Haifa, Acre, ‎Nazareth and all the Palestinian cities occupied in 1948 will return to us one day.‎”

A Palestinian girl sings for the extirpation of Israel:

Palestinian girl Nour: “A Zionist stole the land of Palestine,
War, destruction, murder, and wailing,
We were uprooted and the world called us refugees (i.e., in 1948),
We have sacrificed millions of Martyrs for the sake of your return, Palestine…
We said a year, two years – they have become 70 (i.e., since Israel’s creation in 1948),
Rebel, rebel, O people of the giants,
And shoot with your fire, like volcanoes,
So Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] will return to us, O Muslims…
And Allah willing we will be victorious, and everyone will be witnesses,
We are returning. By Allah, we are returning,
Even if the entire world gives up on you, your children won’t, O Palestine…”

Official PA TV host of The Best Home: “Bravo! […] I want to tell you, as my friend Nour has said, we are returning. Soon, Allah willing, we will return to our land… Every one of us can resist the occupation wherever he is, and in our different ways so we can bring back Palestine. Children, are we capable of bringing it back? Are you sure? Good.”

Would you gather from this stuff that Palestine would be satisfied with a two-state solution? I don’t think so.

I’d love to sit Linda Sarsour down and make her watch some of these videos, and then ask for her reaction.

    It appears the Palestinians have abandoned even the pretense of seeking a peaceful solution. In the meantime, the head of the US delegation is a 37-year-old real-estate dilettante, and Bibi has anointed himself minister of defense of his faltering government.

    Peace should be at hand by Christmas.

          The two sides coming together to build a crèche seems more likely now than does a two-state solution. Tragically.

          There are more than 2 sides, which is partially (very partially) why the conflict is so crazy. In particular, there are a sizable number of Palestinian Christians. (Including the late Yassir Arafat’s wife, if I recall.)

      I would like to believe that somehow there can be a resolution that brings peace, but what is happening between Israel and Palestine seems more and more to be reflected in the rest of the world. I have never seen as much hatred expressed verbally and physically in the U.S. as happens now.

    How widespread is the belief expressed. Last polls I saw. about the Palestines belief was not that extreme.
    If this is the expression of the majority or even if a large plurality than the situation is much more dire than I thought.

    I believe the two state solution is dead on both sides at the present time. It may reappear later but it will take a lot of work and effort by a few to rescue the situation and change the direction in which they are now headed.

    For a two state solution to occur some solution will have to be made to the Jewish settlers in the West Bank. They live all over the area and have no intention of becoming citizens if any state other than Israel. They have a lot of backing in Israel and I believe the prime ministers majority backing is dependent on the support of those that’s back the settlers. That situation alone is sufficient to kill any hopes of the two state solution.

    Then there is the problem that the economy of Israel is dependent on workers from the West Bank and Gaza coming to work every day. I don’t see how two states can exist side by side with both dependent on daily border crossings to support their economies. That does not seem to me to be a permanent solution thst has any hopes of working and insuring stability.

    I could go owned with more issues. Including the types who were screaming and hitting the airline employees because they wanted off the plane before sundown. How do Arabs live together in the sane country as those people. How do reform and secular Jews live with them, much less Arabs?

      Actually, it’s not Israeli Jew living behind the armistice line from 1949 who “have no intention to become citizens of any state other than Israel”. It’s Mahmoud Abbas who repeatedly announced that no Jew will be allowed to live in the future Palestinian state. Moreover, most Jews live very close to the armistice line and these territories were understood in all previous negotiations to remain with Israel. Palestinians were supposed to get other areas as compensation. (It should be noted that Israeli settlements take under 5% of the land area of the West Bank.) Israel removed it’s “outposts” twice: from Sinai after the peace agreement with Egypt, and from Gaza and parts of West Bank after Oslo Agreement. Israeli governments said that they are prepared to remove some Jews in case a proper peace agreement is reached with Palestinians, though only these which are far from the demarcation line.

      Just to clarify: there was no “hitting airline employees” on the El Al flight, there were angry people because they were kept without explanation what’s going on and what’s going to happen, but the plane landed in Athens not because the passengers demanded it but because there is a special contract between El Al and the State of Israel about flying on Sabbath. There was though hitting and racist screaming on Air India flight, but the hitter and screamer was an Irish BDS supporter and Irish people somehow manage to live with such types ( There are also enough screamers and hitters on the Arab side, as well as in all nation on Earth and somehow people manage to live with them.

      Unfortunately, all polls show that the hate propaganda conducted since Oslo Accords has been effective and these are the attitudes of the majority of Palestinians. The greater honor and courage of the few dissidents who try to convince their countrymen to compromise and live in peace with Jews. They very often end in Palestinian prisons or even dead.

    And as far as the first claim goes – that Jews can’t live in Palestine – what about the settlers who have been stealing Palestinian land for decades?

    • Posted November 19, 2018 at 7:34 pm | Permalink

      There is nothing wrong with them living there. It is good for the economy and tax base if the Arab government. As long as they submit to the authority and government of the West Bank, obeying the laws and paying their taxes of the legitimate West Bank government, which is Arab, not Israel, then they are good.

    On a lighter note, I love this version–wish the principals could find such harmony.

    Yes, Palestine appears a bit of a reactionary apartheid state. The worst is the indoctrination of children with violent jew-hatred. How can that ever be reversed?

    • Posted November 21, 2018 at 3:53 pm | Permalink

      It can be reversed in 5-10 years, if – and only if – Palestinians are convinced that their collective mission (i.e. annihilation of Israel) is impossible. After all, children of Germany and Japan were also indoctrinated.
      Unfortunately, the world is sending very mixed messages to Palestinians. There is BDS, there are pro-Palestinian professors, there are people convinced that you can accept the annihilation of Israel without being antisemitic. This is why the problem persists.
