WAFA Monitors Incitement and Racism in Israeli Media

RAMALLAH, October 4, 2011 (WAFA) – Palestine News and Information Agency (WAFA) monitored incitement and racism against the Palestinians and Arabs published by the Israeli media between September 15 and 22.

Eitan Haber wrote an article published in ‘Yedioth Ahronoth’ newspaper, in which he said, “In 1967, we brought back 300 thousands settlers to Judea and Samaria (West
bank)  and Gaza. We proved to the world that we are the masters of this land and we own the world.”

“Things have changed,” he added, “The terrorists are now the world’s sweethearts! 190 countries chanted to Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazin) while we are consoling ourselves with the American Veto. What a stupid consolation!”

Yedioth Ahronoth also published several statements by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Avigdor Lieberman addressed to the Israeli government before heading to the United Nations, in which he called on to cancel the Oslo accords, annex settlements in Judea and Samaria to Israel and withhold the transfer of the Palestinian funds, if they establish a Palestinian state.

He said, “If Netanyahu doesn’t punish the Palestinians, the collation will be canceled.”

‘Hamodia’ religious newspaper  published an article by M. Yzhaki in which he said, “The President of the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization, Abbas, is trying to follow the late PLO leader, Yassir Arafat’s route to establish a Palestinian state. Will he
be the man to do it?”

Ze’ev Jabotinsky wrote an article published in ‘Israel Today’, before Netanyahu’s speech to the UN General Assembly, in which he suggested the main prospect the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu must tackle in his speech. “I know what will Netanyahu say in his speech, but I suspect that he would do it efficiently!”

He added, “If he would take my advice, I would suggest that he must remind the world of our right in the land of Israel, which is based on the international law and the international community. Israel will not adopt any decisions that contradict with our right in full sovereign state.”

Yaron Dekel, Israeli talk show host ‘Good Morning Israel’ instigated against Arab Knesset Member, Ahmad al-Tibi for joining Abbas on his private plane to New York, saying “Al-Tebie is enjoying dancing in both weddings; the Israeli Knesset and Palestinian delegation to UN and even if he said that it was a free meaningless trip, we will not accept his false claims easily.”

“If you (al-Tibi) decide to become a Palestinian minister, you are not welcomed in the Israeli Knesset, you can’t have both!” he said.

‘NFC’ website published an article by Nurit Greenger, in which she responded to the Palestinian ambassador to the UN, Ma’an Erekat’s statements about the future Palestinian state which will be free of Jews, saying “what kind of hypocrisy is that? Arabs won’t let Jews live with them and yet Israel has to allow them live among us? Will the world allow Israel to transfer Israel into an Arab-free state?”

She said that these statements mean that the PLO adopts anti-Semitic and Nazi policy. She stated, “Every state that supports the Palestinian state is enforcing the Nazi ideology, and every state that doesn’t object the PLO’s policy, calls on the destruction of the Jewish state, Israel and the Jews.”

‘Makor Rishon’ religious newspaper published an article by Asaf Golan, in which he said that “Abbas has cut all possible political relations with the Israeli side.”

He said, “Abbas’ stubbornness reminds us of Palestinian Arab Nationalist, Haj Amin al-Husseini’s stubbornness, who preferred to drag the Arab countries into a war with Israel instead of accepting what we offered back in 1948.”

‘Ynet’ website published news responding to the Palestinian bid to UN, which said “hundreds of Settlers chanted ‘No for Murderers’ state” in a protest held in the West
Bank.”

The news quoted an Israeli official, saying “our protest aims to remind everyone of who started the trouble. The Oslo accords brought terrorism and murder upon us.”

Another official said, “Jews scream at the world that Samaria is theirs;tThousands live there and they will not accept establishing a state on their land.”

Dan Margalit, an Israeli journalist wrote an article published in ‘Israel Today’, in which he accused Abbas of opposing peace. “We can’t ignore the truth that Abbas opposes peace and supports terrorism. He encouraged Arafat to reject Camp David in 2000 when Ehud Barak, Former Israeli Prime Minister offered a solution to the Jerusalem issue. He fears peace!”

Zev Cam, an Israeli journalist wrote an inciting article published on ‘NRG’ website opposing the Palestinian bid to UN, in which he said “establishing a Palestinian state in the backyard of Israel (West Bank) will change the current situation majorly; not necessarily in a negative way for Israel.”  “Actually, establishing a Palestinian state means that the PA is not allowed speaking of the refugees’ rights. We will deal with
the Palestinian terrorism in a different way and fight Palestinians through a legal war between two states; no one will object.”

Cam said, “We will cut funding for the so-called Palestinian state, including electricity, water, gas and infrastructure. The Palestinians will have to dig for water themselves.”

‘Haartz’, an Israeli newspaper published an article by Israeli journalist Ari Shavt, in which he criticized the failure of Netanyahu and Lieberman to advance toward the peace process.

He said, “Israel offered the Palestinians the land of 1967 in exchange of the 1948 and the right to exist instead of the right of return but the Palestinians refused.”

Shavt added, “The Palestinians are the only people who oppose peace.”

Gabi Avital wrote an article published on ‘NFC’ website, in which he denied the existence of the Palestinians and their right to an independent state.  “The Palestinian people are the biggest lie out there,” he said.
