In a Jewish neighborhood in London, pro-Palestinian protestors shouted “F*** the Jews. Rape their daughters” as they drove in a convoy of cars toting Palestinian flags over the weekend.

“Khayber Khaybar (kill) oh Jews, Mohammad’s army is returning,” was shouted by protestors in the streets who were wearing t-shirts with pictures of Saddam Hussein. Other protests around the city featured the destruction Israeli flags and shouts of anti-Zionist slogans.

Four individuals from the car protest were arrested, London’s police service confirmed. However, the atmosphere still isn’t “very good” and the Jewish community is in a state of “distress,” according to a local.

A security notice has been issued because of the rise in antisemitic incidents in the U.K. amid the conflict between Israel and Palestinian terrorist organizations Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.

A charity working to ensure the safety of the Jewish community said it expects the “antisemitism to continue, or indeed worsen, until the conflict in Israel and Gaza subsides.”

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said there would be an increased presence of police in Jewish neighborhoods.

In the Netherlands, similar protests featured overt support for the Taliban.

In Belgium, pro-Palestinian protestors shouted “death to Jews.”

The rhetoric from pro-Palestinian protestors on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean also featured hateful and extremist rhetoric. “Long live the intifada” was repeatedly chanted as well as “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.”

The statements are slogans of Hamas, which is a U.S. designated terrorist organization. The intifada is the Palestinian uprising and means in Arabic “shaking off.”

Two locals participating in a pro-Palestinian march in Washington, D.C. this reporter spoke with said they’ve felt very strongly “for decades” about the movement. They said that although they’ve been accused of antisemitism, the conflict has nothing to do with religion.

“Because they’ve put it all in terms of religion and it’s not about religion,” the protestor said. “It’s about aggressive land takeover and basically settler colonialism not respecting the fact that other people share this earth with you…”

Another protestor argued something similar, saying that anti-Zionism isn’t anti-Semitism and that Jews were “used” during the Holocaust to form Israel.

“Number one, Palestinian people should understand language and know definitions because Palestinians and Jews are both Semitic people,” he said. “It just means a region… Semitic means in that region. So, to be anti-Zionist doesn’t mean that you’re antisemitic, it means that to be anti-Zionism means that you are against the occupation of Palestine and against a homeland based on religion.”

He added that there should be a secular state in what is currently Israel and that it shouldn’t be based on a “religion or whatever that so-called thousands of years ago occured.”

“Basically, to be anti-Zionism is not to be anti-Jew… One of my closest friends is Jewish and he’s anti-Zionist so it’s kind of a misnomer and that’s sort of the brush that they paint anyone that’s against Israel is antisemitic and that’s not the truth at all. Actually, to me, it’s one of the greatest crimes that a people, the Jewish people during the Holocaust were used to create a settler state in the Middle East or whatever….”

In Seattle, pro-Palestinian protestors also shouted “long live the Intifada” as they stole an Israeli flag from pro-Israel protestors and set it ablaze.

Radio talk show host Jason Rantz, was assaulted by an anti-Israel protestor.

“In the process of covering the event, which was already tense for me as a Jew, I was assaulted by a fringe activist,” Rantz wrote of the incident. “I was then summarily kicked out of the public rally. As the woman hit me with a Palestinian flag, anti-Israel activists in the crowd did nothing. Some of the assault was caught on cell phone video. I wasn’t the only Jew assaulted.”

In Dearborn, Michigan, pro-Palestinian protestors called for an “intifada.”

In Canada, a Jewish man was assaulted. Others were also reportedly attacked by the mob.

In Montreal, Jews were chased and had rocks thrown at them. Some of the attackers were reportedly armed with knives.

PA President Abbas pushes ‘institutionalized anti-Semitism’ against Jews

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, while in Germany and standing next to German chancellor Olaf Scholz, accused Israel of committing “50 holocausts” against the Palestinians. This follows a long tradition of Abbas’ anti-Semitic statements on the Holocaust. In 2018, Abbas accused Jews of being “subjected to a massacre every 10 to 15 years…not because of their religion, but rather their social behavior related to usury and banks.” In 2015, Abbas also stated that “[i]f they [Jews] say they made sacrifices in World War II, and we respect what they say, they should not treat us the way they were treated [by the Nazis].” And in his 1984 book, The Other Side: The Secret Relationship between Nazism and Zionism, Abbas stated that “We find that Zionists believe in the purity of the Jewish race, as Hitler believed in the purity of the Aryan race.”

Such anti-Semitism runs rampant in the Palestinian Authority (PA). PA political figures and press have consistently defamed Israel by comparing it to Nazi Germany to brainwash the Palestinian population against reconciliation and normalization with the Jewish state. Since 2021 alone, there have been ample examples of the PA using such drivel in their propaganda machine. This is part of a much larger, institutionalized anti-Semitism embedded in Palestinian nationalism itself.

 

Claim #1: Israel, Israelis are Nazi Germany, Nazis

PA media and political figures liken Israel to Nazi Germany, and Israelis to Nazis. Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub called “Zionism and this racist fascist occupation” “the ugly face of Nazism,” and called Israelis “the new Nazis who are working to eliminate the Palestinian people.” The Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida has accused Israel of “carrying out the Hitleresque holocaust anew against the Palestinian Arab people and the peoples of the Arab world.” Al-Hayat Al-Jadida also stated that, regarding Jewish violence against Arabs in the May 2021 riots in Israel, that “Israel has repeated Kristallnacht.” [The reality was that Jewish violence against Arabs was widely condemned in Israel and paled in comparison to Arab violence against Jews during that same time.] Al-Hayat Al-Jadida also stated that “Israel is becoming a state most similar to Nazi Germany.”

 

Claim #2: Israel’s Leadership are Nazis

 

PA media and political figures also liken Israel’s leaders to Nazis. Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub calledNetanyahu “the ugly face of Mussolini and Hitler.” A political cartoon on the website of the Fatah Commission of Information and Culture portrays Benjamin Netanyahu dressed as Hitler giving a Nazi-salute with a blood-drenched hand with the caption “Adolf Netanyahu.” A host on PA TV stated that “What Eichmann did to the Jews in Austria, they’re doing- [Israeli Parliament Member] Naftali Bennett is doing to us, exactly. They have copied the experience.”

 

Claim #3: Israel’s Prisons Are Nazi Death Camps

 

Lastly, PA media and political figures also liken Israel’s prison system to the Nazi death camps and crematoria. Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub called Israeli prisons “an identical copy of Auschwitz and the death camps.” PA Shari’ah Judge Nasser Al-Qirem referred to Israel’s prisons as the “Nazi occupation’s bastilles.” The Official PA dailyAl-Hayat Al-Jadida  accused Israel of carrying out crimes against Palestinian civilians similar to “Hitler’s Nazi detention camps,” and earlier had stated that Israel’s “detention camps have become most similar to the Nazi crematoriums.”

Abbas’ statement that Israel has committed “50 holocausts” against the Palestinian people should not be surprising, given that Abbas has made similar anti-Semitic statements for years. The Palestinian Authority in turn, through various political figures and its press propagate similar statements. Coupled with other anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli, and even jihadi comments, the Biden administration should not further accommodate the PA, nor seek to join it in the Abraham Accords.
