Dear Editor,

If you support Palestinians, you have to agree with these statements all spoken by PA or Fatah officials, some published in various Palestinian journals.

This is the theme: Jews are inherently evil, endangering not only Palestinians, but all of humanity. Accordingly, Jews themselves are responsible for the Antisemitism

Jews see others as their animals.

Jews allied with Nazis to accumulate wealth.

Jews led the project to enslave humanity.

They [Jews] are continuing to fulfill the same negative social, economic, and political role that caused societies in Europe to vomit them out." [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 19,

Herds of humanoids, people or creatures that Allah created in the form of humans... Those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs." [Quran 5:60]

[Official PA TV, Sept. 30, 2022]

There are many more statements describing Jews as blood sucking, evil people needing to be eradicated. They are not hard to find if Link Editors want to include them.

The Hamas Charter calls for all the Jews in the world to be murdered. The PLO Charter just wants to kill all the Jews in the Middle East. Both are Palestinian entities.

The saddest manifestation of this hatred are recitations that appear on Palestinian children's TV  showing beautiful little kids yearning to become martyrs while killing Jews, in other words. yearning for death. They are being initiated into a death cult.

If this is all right with the Concordia's Alumni, I feel bad for Quebec's Jewish population and for Canada, but most of all for the Palestinians who need to be assisted to accept the humanity of Jews in order to have a peaceful future.
