      On International Holocaust Day, messages of anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews continue to be transmitted by official Palestinian Authority TV, Palestinian Media (PMW) Watch reported.

      Earlier this month, on Fatah's 48th anniversary, PA TV broadcast a new film about the history of the Fatah movement, titled "Fatah: Revolution until Victory." The filmmakers chose to begin the film by expressing classic anti-Semitic demonization of Jews, stating that Europe "suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews."

      Having Jews living among them placed a great burden on the Europeans: "Faced with the Jews' schemes, Europe could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government," it said.

      Palestinian Media Watch, founded by Middle Eastern scholar Itamar Marcus, has documented that the PA for years has explained Zionism as a European plot to be rid of its Jews.

      The film explains that this eventually led to the expulsion of the Jews from England, France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Italy, because of European suffering from the Jews' presence.

      Finally, when the Balfour Declaration facilitated the establishment of "a national homeland" for the Jews, Europe supported it because it "saw it as an ideal solution to get rid of them."

      "Faced with the Jews' schemes, Europe could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government,” said an excerpt of the PA TV broadcast demonizing Jews.

      “In 1290, King Edward I issued a decree banishing the Jews [from England]. Following him were France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Italy. The European nations felt that they had suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews. Later the Jews obtained the Balfour Declaration, and Europe saw it as an ideal solution to get rid of them," it said, according to PMW.
