Suicide terror & Shahada
Shahada (Death for Allah) promotion
Suicide terror & Shahada
People who see life as the supreme value have difficulty understanding the mind of the suicide terrorist. Why were so many Palestinians willing and eager to kill themselves in terror attacks against Israel?

In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA took advantage of the ancient tradition in Islam, Shahada or Death for Allah, which mandates Muslims to aspire to die in combat for Islam. The PA told their people that this ancient tradition also applies to them in confrontation with Israel today.

This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005) and continues today. The PA promotes Shahada as a mandatory religious Islamic duty, both for adults and children, promising great rewards.
Shahada (Death for Allah) promotion
Since 2000, the promotion of Shahada has been carried out by the Palestinian Authority through all the structures under its control, including media, school system, religion, culture, music and sports. Religious leaders have taught adults that Islam demands they seek death, while music videos have taught children that Shahada death “is sweet.” Shahada promotion still continues today.

In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA presents Shahada - Death for Allah - as a religious Islamic obligation. This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005).
Palestinians are told that Allah desires all of them – men, women and children – to seek death as martyrs, and that it is a privilege to be worthy of dying for Allah. One cleric even warned that if they didn’t seek Death for Allah their Muslim faith was deficient:
Ahmed Abdel Razek, PA Cleric:
“The believer was created to know his Lord - to follow Islam… to be a Shahid (Martyr) or intend to be one. If the believer doesn't hope for Shahada (Death for Allah), he will die a Jahiliya death (without faith). We must aim for Shahada and request it from Allah. If we truthfully ask for it, [Allah] will grant us its rewards, even if we die in bed.”

And here, we present you today with the true story of how the occupation executed our Martyr sons and is holding their bodies… What the eyewitnesses saw decisively confirms that what happened is execution in cold blood, and that what happened is a car accident – the opposite of every other claim that the occupation believes.”

Headline: “Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim: “The occupiers are doomed to disappear, and the future is ours”

The attempt to scare us and threaten us these days, through one person or another from among those who have threatened to attack the Gaza Strip or the Aswan Dam [in Egypt] (apparently referring to Avigdor Lieberman whose party is joining the Israeli government coalition –Ed.), will remain empty threats, as we are a people who love death more than life when it is Palestine that we are fighting for.’"

Girl on Gaza university educational TV: Israelis are afraid but Palestinians aren’t because “they [Israelis] love life” 
Source: Al-Kitab TV (educational channel affiliated with the Islamic University of Gaza), Oct. 16, 2015
Al-Kitab TV host: “Dear viewers, we must talk about the high number of Martyrs (Shahids) in Palestine compared to the number of dead Israelis. This is an indication of the violence and tyranny of the Israeli occupation. It’s true that the occupation kills many of us and they become Martyrs, but the number of dead on their side is low. This demonstrates the violence and tyranny of the occupation. Many of them [Palestinians] were executed in cold blood, and the occupation claimed that they had stabbed a soldier or a settler. It has become a sort of a game. Every time the settlers see a Palestinian walking by, they throw a knife next to him and claim he was trying to carry out a stabbing attack…
Eternal glory for the devoted Martyrs. We salute their families and wish them [the ability] to carry their burden with patience. We praise the young heroes who sacrificed their souls for Jerusalem and carried out these wonderful heroic acts. We kiss their hands because they are true heroes. We say to all the Mujahideen (i.e., Jihad fighters) of Palestine: ‘Mujahideen, keep your shoes, because the day will come when all the museums of the world will ask them of you.’”
Girl: “The Israelis fight with missiles and tanks, while we fight with rocks. [But] we are not afraid. They are more afraid than us, because they love life.”

Fatah Facebook glorifies suicide bomber as a "magnificent Martyrdom-seeker" 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Mar. 28, 2019


Posted text: “Tomorrow will be the 17th anniversary of [the death of] self-sacrificing fighter Ayyat Al-Akhras, a daughter of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing).
Martyr Ayyat Muhammad Lutfi Al-Akhras, a young Palestinian female refugee from the Deheisheh refugee camp/Bethlehem, blew herself up in a [shopping] center of the Zionists in West Jerusalem, and this was during the Arab Summit conference on March 29, 2002.
Ayyat Muhammad Lutfi Al-Akhras was born on Feb. 20, 1985. Her grandfather’s family was uprooted from its original village of Qatra in the Ramle area that is occupied since 1948 due to the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) that befell the Palestinian people, and in the end reached the camps of refugeehood and wretchedness at the Deheisheh refugee camp in the Bethlehem area.”
