In Violation Of Road Map, Official Palestinian Authority Television Broadcasts Lecture Urging “Kill The Jews”
July 14, 2003

NEW YORK- In blatant violation of President Bush’s Road Map, the official Palestinian Authority television station has broadcast a lecture urging Arabs to murder Jews.

On July 13, 2003, PA Television featured Dr. Hassan Khader, founder of the Al Quds Encyclopedia, delivering a lecture in which he said:

“Mohammed said: “The Hour [Day of Resurrection] will not arrive until you fight the Jews, [until a Jew will hide behind a rock or tree] and the rock and the tree will say: ‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!’” (Translation courtesy of Palestinian Media Watch)

Morton A. Klein, National President of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), said: “Ten years ago, in the Oslo accords, the Palestinian Arabs promised to end their incitement. In President Bush’s June 2002 speech, he again demanded they halt their incitement. More than two months ago, President Bush proclaimed the Road Map, which again demands a halt to incitement. Yet every day, the vicious anti-Israel and anti-American incitement continues in the official PA media, school textbooks, speeches, summer camps, and religious sermons. Ten years of broken promises, ten years of vicious incitement—incitement that continues at the very moment PA prime minister Abu Mazen is claiming that the PA is stopping its incitement. As long as the Arabs promote hatred and murder of Jews, real peace will be impossible.”
