ZOA Condemns Palestinian TV Calling For Murder Of Jews
January 3, 2005

NEW YORK- The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has condemned Palestinian Authority TV for broadcasting a show in which the founder of Al Quds Encyclopedia, Dr. Hassan Kohata, cited the Hadith (Religious Islamic writings attributed to Mohammed) saying,

“The Hour (Day of Resurrection) will not arrive until you fight the Jews (until a Jew will hide behind a rock or a tree) and the rock and the tree will say “Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” (December 27, 2004) (translated by Palestinian Media Watch)

ZOA President Morton A. Klein said: “The promotion of murder and hatred of Jews continues regularly in the Palestinian Authority TV. If the Palestinian Authority continues to educate for violence, peace will remain impossible. The US should stop funding the Palestinian Authority and refuse to negotiate with Mahmoud Abbas, likely future President of the PA, until the incitement ends.”
