Why do so many Palestinians (and others) think they should kill Jews?

Why do so many Palestinians (and others) think they should kill Jews?

'Palestinian Media Watch has found that the PA teaches an ideology of virulent hatred of Jews
and Israel that mandates the killing of Jews solely because they are Jews. The murder of Jews
is presented not only as beneficial to Muslims and Arabs, but as necessary for all humankind.
These findings are based on a thorough study and analysis of eight years of official PA
television and PA-controlled daily newspapers. This report documents how this hate ideology
has been taught for years, well before the war started in September 2000, and continues even
after the death of Yasser Arafat:'
That's an extract from this Palestinian Media Watch paper do go and read the whole piece.

Here's some examples, there are dozens more in the PAL Watch document:
“Kill them all... we won’t leave a single Jew here.” Young Girl [PA TV (Fatah), Oct. 22, 2000]
Dr. Mahmoud Mustafa Najem: “The Jews are Jews, and we are forbidden to forget their character traits even for a moment, even for a blink of an eye.” [PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 6, 2002
This presentation of Jews as having inherently negative character traits was taught for years in the PA curriculum: “One must beware of the Jews, for they are treacherous and disloyal.” [Islamic Education for Ninth Grade, page 79] “Treachery and disloyalty are character traits of the Jews and therefore one should beware of them.” [Islamic Education for Ninth Grade, page 87] These books were based on Jordanian schoolbooks. Though the PA was notified of this content in 1999, it refused an American offer to fund the reprinting of these books without this and other anti-Jewish content.
Crossword Puzzle Clue: “Jewish character trait spelled backwards” Solution: “Treachery” [Al-Quds, Dec. 20, 2000]
“We are waging this cruel war with the brothers of the monkeys and pigs, the Jews and the sons of Zion.” [PA TV (Fatah), Sept. 12, 2004]
Sheikh Ibrahim Mudayris: “The Muslim remembers how the Jews corrupted the land... Oh Muslims! The Jews are Jews. Their character and custom are the corruption and destruction of this land. We keep warning you: the Jews are a cancer that spreads inside the body of the Islamic and Arab nation.... They invest in the East Asian countries, which were destroyed [by the Tsunami] because of the Jewish and American corruption and destruction.” [PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 7, 2005]
Senior historian Issam Sissalem used a “parasitic worm” simile in referring to the Jews who came to Israel: “[Jews-Israelis] are like a parasitic worm that eats a snail and lives in its shell. We will not let anyone live in our shell.” [PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 21, 2004]
“If we presented this before a judge [now]...he would renew this condition ... the solution is that no Jew should live there... The prosperity of this city [Jerusalem] and of this land necessitates that no Jew should ever live there.” [PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 14, 2004]
Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi: "All weapons must be aimed at the Jews, Allah’s enemies, the cursed nation in the Koran, whom Allah describes as monkeys and pigs: [The] Koran says clearly that the worst enemies of the Moslem Nation are the Jews, may Allah fight them...” [PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 3, 2001]
Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiyah, Sharia (Islamic Law) Rulings Council, Rector of Advanced Studies, Islamic University: “The Jews are the Jews. Whether Labor or Likud the Jews are Jews. They do not have any moderates or any advocates of peace. They are all liars. They must be butchered and must be killed... The Jews are like a spring as long as you step on it with your foot it doesn’t move. But if you lift your foot from the spring, it hurts you and punishes you: “It is forbidden to have mercy in your hearts for the Jews in any place and in any land. Make war on them any place that you find yourself. Any place that you meet them, kill them.” [PA TV (Fatah), Oct. 13, 2000]
Soon after this call to kill Jews, a teenager on PA TV expressed this desire to kill all Jews: “Kill them all... we won’t leave a single Jew here.” [Young Girl, PA TV (Fatah), Oct. 22, 2000]

Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi: “All the weapons must be aimed at the Jews, Allah’s enemies, the cursed nation in the Koran, whom Allah describes as monkeys and pigs, worshippers of the calf and idol worshippers: Nothing will deter them except the color of blood in their filthy nation : unless we blow ourselves up, willingly and as our duty, in their midst: We will blow them up in Hadera, we will blow them up in Tel-Aviv and in Netanya so that Allah will make us masters over this riff-raff. We will fight against them and rule over them until the Jew will hide behind the tree and rock and the tree and rock will say: ‘Muslim! Servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, kill him.’” [PA TV (Fatah), Aug. 3, 2001]
This official PA line that God demands the killing of Jews was expressed in graphic form on the Hamas website promising entry to Heaven to those who follow God’s command. The words read: “We shall knock on heaven’s doors with the skulls of Jews.” Dr. Mahmoud Mustafa Najem: “Servants of Allah, be you the ones by whom Allah tortures the Jews with harsh torment.” [PA TV (Fatah), Nov. 1, 2002]
Muhammad Abd Al Hadi La’afi, Responsible for Religious Teaching and Instruction in the Office of the Waqf: “The battle with the Jews will surely come: The decisive Muslim victory is coming without a doubt, and the prophet spoke about in more than one Hadith, and the Day of Resurrection will not come without the victory of the believers [the Muslims] over the descendants of the monkeys and pigs [the Jews] and with their annihilation.” [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida (Fatah), May 18, 2001]
It doesn't matter whether it is Hamas or Fatah, the aim is the same destroy Israel utterly, ensure there is no Jewish state in the Middle East and kill as many Jews as possible. Yet these are the people Israel are told to negotiate with as 'partners in peace'?

The BBC just won't report these regular statements from Hamas or Fatah that call for death for all Jews etc. but will report when one Israeli extremist makes threats against Arabs. I have complained about this to the BBC but their Middle East supremo, Tarik Kafala, seems uninterested in taking my complaints seriously.
This is a repost of a piece from last year that I think bears repeating.
