No one should be surprised when “Palestinians” fly the Nazi flag, as they did a few days ago.
“Of course, Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with anyone who is dedicated to its destruction. But while I know you have had differences with the Palestinian Authority, I believe that you do have a true partner in President Abbas…” — Barack Obama, March 21, 2013
“‘Hitler’s sayings’ published by PA-associated youth magazine,” by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik for Palestinian Media Watch, October 21:
The PA-associated educational youth magazine Zayzafuna, whose Advisory Board include PA Deputy Minister of Education Jihad Zakarneh and the Head of the Media Department of the PA Ministry of Education, Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, published a list of ten short wisdom sayings that it claimed were said by Hitler. The youth magazine gave no introduction or comment on the list other than the title “Among Hitler’s sayings.”
Some of the sayings attributed to Hitler included:
“If you were stabbed in the back, know that you are in front”
“When the defeated smiles, he denies the winner the pleasure of victory”
“Don’t challenge a man who has nothing to lose”
“Don’t find fault in your wife’s taste for she chose you in the first place”
Palestinian Media Watch has not found the quotes attributed to Hitler. Several of them appear with slight variations on “words of wisdom” websites, and are either anonymous sayings or attributed to other people. For example, “Don’t argue with a fool because people won’t be able to tell you apart” has been attributed to Mark Twain; “We are all like the moon – we have a dark side” has been attributed to Lebanese writer Khalil Gibran.
The purpose of attributing these “sayings” to Hitler, it seems, is to present Hitler as a sharp-witted and wise person.
This is not the first time that the PA-associated youth magazine has presented Hitler in a positive light. In 2011, PMW exposed an essay in Zayzafuna that glorified Hitler and portrayed him as a role model. The essay expressed admiration for Hitler because he killed Jews – an act presented as benefiting all of humanity. In the essay, Hitler says to a Palestinian girl in her dream:
“I killed them [the Jews] so you would all know that they are a nation which spreads destruction all over the world.”…
