Anti-Semitic Tracts Sold on
Palestinian Authority Website

From Little Green Footballs:

JERUSALEM — An official Palestinian Authority information website directly affiliated with President Mahmoud Abbas has published on its Arabic language section a copy of the ”Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” a classic anti-Semitic forgery, while the English section does not contain the work, WND has learned.

Abbas recently had been credited by the U.S. and Israel for fighting anti-Israel incitement., the official Internet website of the Palestinian State Information Service, SIS, published an Arabic translation to the ”Protocols,” a notorious forgery authorized by the anti-Semetic Czarist police in early 20th-Century Russia that purports to be minutes of a meeting of top Jewish leaders plotting world domination.

The Arabic version of the Al-Nakba site contains the full work, which was translated by a Lebanese Druze militant and taken directly from the website of the hard-line Islamic Da’wa Party in Iraq, according to an analysis provided to WND by Israel’s Center for Special Studies. ...

Al-Nakba literally means ”the catastrophe.” The official site serves as a propaganda device regarding the situation surrounding Palestinian refugees who claim to have been displaced as a result of Israel’s founding, says the Center for Special Studies.

The site has been updated several times since Abbas took office in January.

What this article, from Little Green Footballs, leaves out is that it is common for Palestinians to refer to the establishment of the state of Israel as "al-Nakba," or the tragedy.

Yes, that's right, the very existence of Israel is a tragedy to the Palestinians. That's because they hate Jews and cannot abide having them on what Arabs consider to be "Dar al-Islam," or Islamic land.
