 A program titled From the Israeli Archive broadcasted on the Palestinian Authority’s TV channel this week claimed that Jews who immigrated to Israel in the course of the Holocaust have been helped by Arabs, and later betrayed them. This system’s episode on “The Expulsion of the Jews from Germany,” aired and was instantly translated and publicized by the Palestinian Media Watch.

“How was the expulsion (i.e., the Nazi genocide) of the Jews carried out? German [Nazi] Minister of Propaganda Goebbels, along with Hitler, disseminated that the Jews are like rats: They unfold ailments, rob the wealth of Germany, and have to be expelled… They reached the land of Palestine hungry, sick, missing every little thing, contaminated with typhus and malaria. We gave them contemporary water to drink and fed them oranges, they usually betrayed the hand that was prolonged to assist them,” the episode started. 
In 1920, anti-Jewish riots erupted throughout the nation, epitomized by the homicide of Jewish writer Y. Brenner in Jaffa. The Arab Revolt in 1936-9 adopted not lengthy after, finally ensuing within the publication of the British White Papers.
