Diaspora Affairs Minister Amichai Chikli stated that the Palestinian Authority was a “neo-Nazi entity” and that alternatives to it should be examined. His comments came in the wake of Friday evening’s attack, which killed seven people, including a 14-year-old boy, and wounded three near a synagogue in Jerusalem’s Neve Ya’akov neighborhood.

Chikli told the Ynet news site that he sees the Palestinian Authority as a “neo-Nazi entity in its essence and outlook… I think that the Palestinian Authority, as of today, is the enemy of the State of Israel. We still do not have any peace agreement with it. It is an enemy entity, an entity that is antisemitic to its core, and we need to examine alternatives to it,” he said.

Referring to a (2014) report by the Anti-Defamation League, Chikli commented that “the most antisemitic political entity on earth is the Palestinian Authority, in which 93 percent of the population advocates antisemitic positions.”

He went on to say that “the address for this (antisemitism) is the Palestinian Authority itself and its (Holocaust denying) leader who accused Israel of committing 50 holocausts while standing on German soil.”

“The PA has pay-to-slay. The more Jews you kill, the more money you get. (The PA) is the source of the problems and terror,” he said. “If I were in the (security) cabinet, I would demand sanctions and actions against the Palestinian Authority.”

Most online antisemitism stems from Palestinians, pro-Palestinian circles

Chikli’s comments also coincided with the release of a new report by the Diaspora Affairs Ministry on the state of antisemitism. The report which was exposed by the Minister during the cabinet meeting on Sunday morning shows that 68% of antisemitic discourse on social media is from Palestinian or progressive pro-Palestinian circles.

While Chikli acknowledged that there are signs of a decrease in antisemitic incidents globally he also stressed that “there has been a noticeable jump in the number of antisemitic incidents specifically in the US, where a hostile atmosphere is emerging on some college campuses towards Jewish students, especially if they identify as Zionists.” 

He went on to say that “the State of Israel has a duty to lead the fight against antisemitism and to act in order to expand the adoption of the IHRA definition, in as many countries and institutions as possible.”

The report also highlighted a sharp increase in violent antisemitic events in 2022 compared to 2021.

According to the report, the countries with the highest rates of antisemitic attacks in 2022 were the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France – homes to some of the largest Jewish communities outside of Israel.

The report shows a 28% increase in physical attacks in the U.K., most of which were carried out against London residents and Jewish institutions. In France, 50% of the total number of antisemitic incidents were physical attacks while in Germany, there was a significant increase (57%) in the number of violent antisemitic incidents.

In terms of the number of antisemitic posts and the number of users promoting antisemitic content, the cities that stood out in 2022 were Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, and Berlin.

Chairman of the World Zionist Organization (WZO) Yaakov Hagoel who also presented a report on antisemitism in 2022 at the cabinet meeting urged those in attendance to demand in their meetings with heads of states to adopt the IHRA definition of antisemitism.
