Palestinian media also equates Netanyahu with Hitler.

The Palestinian propaganda campaign is intended to taunt the Israelis, given the Holocaust, but let’s look at the atrocious reality: worried about its image, Hamas put an end to the use of swastikas by Palestinian nationalists. But that was in early August 2019. Less than three weeks later, Palestinians resumed their displays of swastikas and other Nazi symbols at the border with Israel. So who is really more aligned with the Nazis?

Israel welcomes Arabs into its country and even into its Parliament (Knesset), while the Palestinians continue efforts toward a one-state solution, that is, the total obliteration of Israel. Mahmoud Abbas has stated that not one Israeli will live in a Palestinian state.

“Palestinian Authority regularly equates Israel and Israeli leaders to Nazism and Nazi leaders,” by Donna Rachel Edmunds, Palestinian Media Watch, April 12, 2021:

As part of its propaganda campaign to delegitimize the State of Israel, the Palestinian Authority regularly demonizes Israel and Israeli leaders by comparing them to Nazis and Nazism.

Here follows a partial selection of examples that have appeared in official PA media in recent years.

“They [Israel is] doing to the Palestinians precisely what Hitler did to them. What Eichmann did to the Jews in Austria, they’re doing- Naftali Bennett is doing to us, exactly. They have copied the experience.”

Official PA TV equates Israel to Nazi Germany and apartheid South Africa

Official PA TV host: “Daily acts on the ground, violence by the settlers, ongoing attacks by the occupation – these are different forms of discrimination and inequality, which we sometimes saw in the Nazi regime and also in the apartheid regime in South Africa. Now the occupation state is repeating them and implementing them.”

Op-ed in official PA daily: Israel’s treatment of Palestinians is worse than the Nazi’s [sic] treatment of Jews

“The Palestinians in the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) / the 1948 Arabs are those who stayed on the land after the first stage of the occupation of Palestine (i.e., the establishment of the modern State of Israel in 1948), and they are those who experienced ugly treatment and inhumane methods from the occupier that were used against them to expel them from their land and force them to leave. Means more cruel and despicable than what the Nazis did to the Jews were used against them. Therefore, the suffering of the Arabs of the Interior is no less intense than the suffering that their refugee and uprooted brothers dealt with.”
