Anti-Israel incitement from the Palestinian Authority (PA) reached new lows earlier this week, when an official PA newspaper called Netanyahu a "Nazi," according to Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

PMW reports that the daily Al-Hayyat Al-Jadida newspaper, an official PA publication, called Netanyahu a "racist" just days before International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

"It is possible that Netanyahu has preserved it [racism] and acquired it genetically from the days of the Nazis and the Aryan race," the daily stated in an editorial.

The crime: demanding that the PA recognize Israel as a Jewish state. 

"Instead of Netanyahu disassociating himself from any act that would remind him of Hitler's racism, he imitates it and wants to replicate it against the people of Palestine, its inhabitants and nation and even against the citizens of the State of Israel themselves!," the daily continued. 

The PA has linked Israel with Nazi Germany more than once - while also, ironically, admiring the racist regime. 

In December, PLO official Farouq Qaddoumi stated to Russia Today that Arabs "enthusiastically supported" the Nazi regime during World War Two. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has consistently said that any future Palestinian state would be free of Israelis and Jews, much like the Nazis wanted Germany to be “Judenrein” (free of Jews).

PA ire seems to focus on Netanyahu more and more lately; on Monday, Fatah lashed out at the spokesman for the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), after the latter noted that a picture of armed and masked terrorists on the PA's Facebook page is "not the face of peace." 

Fatah shot back on its Facebook page the next day, saying it isn't concerned by the words of "angry midgets," and pledging to continue to "struggle until the liberation of our land from the impurity of Zionism.
