One way we can evaluate the truth of Palestinian accusations against the Jews or Israel is by how believable they sound.

In 1997, Nabil Ramlawi, the PLO representative to the United Nations in Geneva, said: "The Israeli authorities infected by injection 300 Palestinian children with the HIV virus during the years of the intifada." (Jerusalem Post, March 17, 1997)

  Israel's Arutz 7 (Channel 7) reported on March 25, 01 that in addition to the Palestinian Environment Minister accusing Israel of using radioactive substances in helicopter attacks, the senior PA medical official Dr. Subhi Shalash accused Israel of using a gas that renders its victims impotent. 

  Arutz 7 reported on May 22, 01 that the Palestinian Authority accused the Israel Defense Forces of dropping poisoned chocolate candies to Palestinian children. 

In an interview published in the London based Arabic newspaper al-Shark al-Awsat, Yousef Abu Safieh, the Palestinian Minister of Environment, accused Israel of spreading carcinogens to the Palestinians by manufacturing drinks containing Sweet and Low.  He also said that the Egyptians confiscated two Israeli truckloads of toys that were highly radioactive. The trucks were en route, he said, to Palestinian children. ( 6/16/05)

   A front-page declaration in the official PA newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida on Aug. 14, 2001, claimed that "the occupation is using naked women to hunt down intifada youth." (Jerusalem Post, Aug.15, 2001).  Ironically it was the Palestinians who used a woman to lure an Israeli teenager to his death (Jerusalem Post 1/19/01)

   The official PA newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida reported on Dec. 24, 2001, that "When the occupying authority holds the bodies of martyrs ... they steal body parts of the martyrs." Similarly, Arafat said on Al Jazeera Television on January 13, 2002, that the Israelis "murder our kids and use their organs as spare parts."

   Speaking to reporters on July 20, 2004, Arafat alleged that Israel uses depleted- uranium bullets, as part of its plot to "cause cancer that is like Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

   After Arafat's death and during the regime of Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian media continues incitement against Israel.  Aaron Klein in an article in wrote (Palestinians Claim Israelis X-rayed Woman to Death 5/2/05):

The official Palestinian media, credited by many for reformist policies reportedly implemented following the election of Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas, claimed last week Israeli forces X-rayed a woman to death at a checkpoint.

   This is very clever propaganda because it makes the most innocuous defensive measures that the Israelis are forced to take into a dastardly deed against the Palestinians.  I saw a similar approach concerning the wall/fence that Israel built to keep out suicide bombers and terrorists.  The allegations became, the wall is walling us in and creating a prison.  I walked passed a Palestinian propaganda poster once and they quoted someone as saying something to the effect of:  "They've walled off the sky, I can't see the sky."

   On Feb 14, 2001 Voice of Palestine Radio started the day with the accusation that the Jews are using poison gas on the Palestinians. 

  The February 16, 2001 online English issue of Ha'aretz reports that Palestinian television showed many scenes during the previous week of Palestinian youths at Nasser hospital in Khan Yunis suffering from respiratory difficulties, convulsions and hysteria, described by a doctor as symptoms of "gas attacking their nervous system."  However, Prof. Eran Dolev, head of the Israel Medical Association's ethics board, said that the physiological response to a nerve gas attack looks nothing like the ones portrayed on the television.  "In case of a nerve gas attack, the victim excretes fluids all over his body..." Dolev said.  Other army sources said that the filmed scenes were clearly staged. 

  Even Bassam Eid, director of the Palestinian Human Rights Monitoring Group, said,

This story [of the gas] is causing serious incitement in the territories because the Palestinians have complete faith in the veracity of the claims.  It has damaging psychological effects on the Palestinian people which intensifies the level of violence; unfortunately, this is something which the PA considers today to be an advantage.

The charter of the fundamentalist Palestinian group, Hamas, cites The Protocols of the Elders of Zion by name and frequently reflects the message of that fraudulent text:

The enemies (The Jews) . . . have labored to amass astounding and influential material wealth, which has been exploited to realize their dream. They have used their wealth to gain control of the world media, news agencies, the press, broadcasting stations, etc. . . . They were behind the French revolution and the Communist revolution. . . . They instigated World War I. . . . They caused World War II. . . . It was they who gave the instructions to establish the United Nations and the Security Council to replace the League of Nations, in order to rule over the world through them.

Raphael Israeli in his article "The Oslo Delusion: The Collapse of Assumptions - Part 1, (Outpost August 2001, page 3) wrote how the Palestinians say that:

The moral depravity of the Jews is evinced in their systematic "desecration" of Islamic holy places, in particular the al-Aqsa mosque.   Since the 1970s, Israeli men and women soldiers have been accused in the Palestinian and other Arab press of performing drinking and sex orgies within the mosque compound.

Here is what the respected Islamic scholar and founder of the Islamic American University in Southfield Michigan, Dr. Salah Sultan said at the 1999 IAP conference in Chicago (Terrorist Hunter):

What does "the Cause" mean to you? And what does it mean to your children?...How much do they know about these tragedies? Did we mention to them that the Children of Zion over there cut open the wombs of mothers. As Khalid M. KIhalid mentioned in 1992 when he visited Shamir and saw on his desk a strange ashtray. He asked him, "What strange ashtray is this?" Shamir told him that this was the skull of an embryo. The skull of an embryo? An Israeli soldier opened the womb of a Palestinian mother, took out the embryo, cut off his head, and gave it to him as a present. He gave it to him as a present! This is the method of the Jews. Killing a Muslim or any other non-Jew does not matter to them. Because their motto is, "The gentiles mean nothing to us." This is what the text of the talmud says: "If you come across a non-Jew kill him!"

    Dr. Sultan does not give the chapter and verse of the Talmud where this statement is made because it doesn't exist.  However many such quotes regarding non-Muslims can be found in the Koran.  For example:

I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them.  (Koran 8:12)
