From PA TV, “Christians and Jews have forsaken the teachings of Jesus and Moses”
PA TV last week rebroadcast a religious program maligning Christians and Jews.
Christians are accused of forsaking Jesus”s teaching of love, while the Jews are said to have “worshipped gold… falsified the Torah [of Moses]… made business of the Torah and became rich.” In contrast to those who did not follow God’s Prophets, the lesson teaches of Muhammad’s birth: “… an orphan child is born who will, in the future, become responsible for quenching the world’s desire for justice, love, freedom and truth.”
PMW sees particular significance in the rebroadcast of hate programming on Palestinian Authority-controlled TV, as it indicates that these are messages the PA has actively chosen to repeat at this time.
The following are excerpts from this PA TV religious program:
The program, The Prophets of Allah, begins with the names of 19 Prophets on the screen, including Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Moses, Jesus [Isa] and Muhammad.
Host: “700 years have passed since the birth of Jesus the Christian, during which the Christians have distanced themselves from the teachings of love. The Jews have forsaken the commandments of Moses and returned to worshiping gold. [Visual; Jews in movie, depicting period of Prophets, are seen falling upon gold coins falling to the ground.]
In one of the crude tents an orphan child is born who will, in the future, become responsible for quenching the world’s desire for justice, love, freedom and truth. At a distance of a few steps from his birthplace, statues of idols filled the ancient square and around the Qa`aba [holy black stone in Mecca] built by Abraham and Ishmael to be turned into a house of worship sanctified to Allah, where He alone is worshipped”¦. While far from Mecca, Yath’reb [previous name of Madina] became full of Jews who escaped from the Byzantines, and they landed like wolves on the most fertile land and the most important commodities, and established their villages by taking advantage of the loose Arab presence and their internal disputes. The Jewish scholars would make business of the Torah: They hid [select] pages of it, attached pages, falsified pages, and went on to become rich. And while the Jews were worshipping the gold, faithfully engaging in trade, specializing in scheming, the Arabs worshipped the stones [idols], dedicated themselves to warfare and specialized in composing poetry.”…
