"Mom, I want to die as a Martyr.

in order to kill some Israeli soldiers"
 
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
 
Amid the current Palestinian riots and wave of terror attacks, Palestinian Authority and Fatah officials continue to praise terrorist murderers as "Martyrs" and "heroes." Some also encourage Shahada - seeking death as Martyrs for Allah. Becoming a Martyr (Shahid) represents the highest religious achievement that can be attained by a Muslim.
 
Shortly after the murders of 4 Israeli civilians in two separate attacks on Oct. 1 and 3, Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul addressed Palestinian youth on his Facebook page. He encouraged them to "rise up against the enemies," calling the youth "potential Martyrs for the beloved Palestine":
 
"#Resist_boycott_rise up (literally "make intifada") #General_mobilization_Fatah's_Shabiba [student movement]
More resistance and escalation against the occupation everywhere. Let us make the country a hell for the enemies and tell them clearly, in a way that will split the sky - resist, boycott, advance, rise up, for our land is forbidden to the enemies, and all the members of the Shabiba (i.e., Fatah youth and student movement) are potential Martyrs for the beloved Palestine."
[Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul's Facebook page, Oct. 5, 2015]
 
In another post, Al-Aloul stated that "whoever loves the Shahada (seeking Martyrdom) is not afraid of the settler herds." He ended with the following words of encouragement: "and #let's_continue_the_attacks" [Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul's Facebook page, Oct. 5, 2015]

Putting music to this message, Fatah official Al-Aloul also posted a video and song encouraging Martyrdom for the Al-Aqsa Mosque, with visuals showing Fatah fighters with weapons (see video above):  
 
"O, Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah military wing), 
Revolution
, honor, victory and generosity,
My blood will be shed
for Al-Aqsa
My blood will rebel
until our return"
 [Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul's Facebook page, Oct. 1, 2015]
 
PA leaders have promoted Martyrdom-death as something to strive for, presenting it as glorious and as "a wedding" in Paradise to the 72 Virgins. As shown by Palestinian Media Watch, children have expressed their wish to become Martyrs, and parents have expressed joy over their children's Martyrdom-death when they have died carrying out acts of terror.
 
In keeping with this ideology, the father of Amjad Al-Jundi, an 18-year-old terrorist who stabbed an Israeli soldier and stole his weapon in the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat on Oct. 7, 2015, and who was shot dead by Israeli police, expressed pride and willingness to sacrifice his son for "Palestine" and the Al-Aqsa Mosque:
 
"It is not a loss when you are talking about Palestine or the homeland. My son is an offering to the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], congratulations to him on the Martyrdom-death (Shahada)."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 11, 2015]
 
The official PA daily further reported that the terrorist's mother "sat among the women who came to the Martyr's home in order to see him one last time, making cries of joy and blessing herself: 'My son is a groom, congratulations.'"
 
This PA ideal was also exemplified by the mother of terrorist Muhannad Halabi, who stabbed two Israelis to death in Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. A video on YouTube shows the killer's mother singing, celebrating his Martyrdom-death:
 


"O mother of
Martyr (Shahid), let out cries of joy, all the youth are your sons"
[Youtube channel of MAS FM, Arabic radio station in Sweden, uploaded Oct. 10, 2015]
 
The murderer's father expressed pride over his son's killings, referring to Israelis/Jews as "impure enemies" (see first video above):

"He avenged the women carrying out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]... He avenged them against the impure enemies... He made everyone lift his head up high. Muhannad, may he find favor in the eyes of Allah"
[Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 9, 2015]
Another video shows funeral attendees praising the murderer, chanting to the mother:



 "Let out cries of joy, O mother of
Martyr, your son is a bright candle."
[Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 9, 2015]
 
Wattan news agency stated that funeral-goers also expressed their wish to become "Martyrs," shouting "congratulations, mother of the Martyr, I wish my mother was in your place."
 
 
On Oct. 3, 2015, 19-year-old terrorist Fadi Alloun who stabbed and injured Israeli citizen Moshe Malka (15) near the Old City in Jerusalem and was shot dead by Israeli police when he fled the scene. His uncle praised his funeral as "a wedding" and "a celebration":



Rami Alloun, uncle of terrorist Fadi Alloun:
"We cannot prevent anyone from attending the funeral of a Martyr (Shahid). This is a wedding, it is a celebration. We consider him [a Martyr] with Allah. We will not prevent anyone from [attending] this wedding. We cannot keep anyone from this wedding."
Official PA TV reporter: "Condolences in the name of the entire Palestinian people."
[Official PA TV, Oct. 5, 2015]
 
All three terrorists were young - 18 and 19 years old - and a product of PA education. Just last month, the Secretary-General of the General Union of Palestinian Teachers, Ahmed Sahwil, encouraged Palestinians to seek Martyrdom-death and "sacrifice soul and blood for the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."
 
 
Secretary-General of the General Union of Palestinian Teachers Ahmed Sahwil:  
"The Union of Palestinian Teachers, Palestine's teachers and students, went out today to the main squares on the West Bank and in Gaza, in order to say 'No to occupation, no to the despicable attack on the Al-Aqsa [Mosque].' We will redeem the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] with our souls so that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu the criminal, the gangs of settlers, his soldiers and robbers will understand that the Palestinian people will sacrifice its soul and blood for the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."
[Official PA TV, Sept. 21, 2015]
 
Also applauding the Martyrdom ideal for Palestinian youth was a mother who wrote in the official PA daily about the joy she felt upon hearing her daughter's wish to die a Martyr:
 
"'Mom, I want to die as a Martyr. I want to carry out a Martyrdom operation (i.e., terror attack) in order to kill some Israeli soldiers.'
More than they filled me with fear, my daughter's words filled me with joy."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 8, 2015]
 
The following are longer excerpts of the statements encouraging and praising Martyrdom-death:
 
"Residents of the village of Yatta accompanied the Martyr (Shahid) Amjad Hatem Al-Jundi on his last journey.
The Martyr's father said: 'My son left for work in the 1948 territories (i.e., Israel). He said goodbye to me and his mother, like always, and asked us to be pleased with him. Later in the day, residents of Yatta began to come to our home, and I had no idea that there is a Martyr. Later I learned from the neighbors that my son died as a Martyr.'
The father, who parted with his son today, said: 'It is not a loss when you are talking about Palestine or the homeland. My son is an offering to the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], congratulations to him on the Martyrdom-death (Shahada).' Amjad's mother sat among the women who came to the Martyr's home in order to see him one last time, making cries of joy and blessing herself: 'My son is a groom, congratulations.'"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 11, 2015]
 
Amjad Al-Jundi, from Hebron in the West Bank, stabbed an Israeli soldier and stole his weapon in the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat on Oct. 7, 2015. Al-Jundi then broke into an apartment in a nearby building and tried to attack two Israeli women, but they managed to escape. Al-Jundi was subsequently shot and killed by Israeli police. The soldier and one of the women were lightly wounded in the attack.
 
Video title: "The cries of joy of Martyr Muhannad Halabi's mother"

Muhannad Halabi killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett's wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada," and said that it was a response to Israel's actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not "succumb to humiliation." This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Attendees at terrorist's funeral:
"Let out cries of joy, o mother of Martyr,
your son is a bright candle
Your son is surely in Paradise
This is our popular revolution
Let out cries of joy, o mother of Martyr,
your son is a bright candle"
[Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 9, 2015]

Mother of murderer Muhannad Halabi: "I speak while I am blessing my son, on  his Martyrdom-death (Shahada), and I am proud that he died to defend the women of Palestine..."
Father of murderer Muhannad Halabi: "He avenged the women carrying out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. He avenged them. He avenged them against the impure enemies. He avenged them and made everyone lift his head up high. He made everyone lift his head up high. Muhannad, may he find favor in the eyes of Allah, may he find favor in the eyes of Allah, praise Allah, Master of the World , praise Allah."
[Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 9, 2015]

Text published on Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul's Facebook page
"We were brought up on the expression 'potential Martyrs' and whoever loves the Shahada (Martyrdom seeking) is not afraid of the settler herds, who will vanish sooner or later, or of a fascist standing army which aims the rifle of cowardice at the chests of innocent children and accuses their rocks of being terror. Blessings to a mighty, gigantic people
and #let's_continue_the attacks"

Official PA TV news:
PA TV host:
"The General Union of [Palestinian] Teachers in all districts of the homeland organized demonstrations and marches in support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy sites."
 
PA TV reporter: "In all districts of the homeland, the teachers cancelled their classes and went out to demonstrations and marches in support of the blessed Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. Here at the Al-Manara Square, in the center of Ramallah, teachers and students demonstrated, with calls condemning the occupation's crimes against the holy city (i.e., Jerusalem)."
 
Secretary-General of the General Union of Palestinian Teachers Ahmed Sahwil: "The Union of Palestinian Teachers, Palestine's teachers and students, went out today to the main squares on the West Bank and in Gaza, in order to say 'No to occupation, no to the despicable attack on the Al-Aqsa [Mosque].' We will redeem the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] with our souls so that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu the criminal, the gangs of settlers, his soldiers and robbers will understand that the Palestinian people will sacrifice its soul and blood for the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque."

A girl at the demonstration: "We left the schools in order to participate and to stand by the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and to identify with them [the Murabitin] (i.e., those carrying out Ribat, religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) and to stop the movement of the occupation in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque], and we hope it will be liberated."
 
Pictures from the demonstration shows sign with text: "Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching to Jerusalem."
[Official PA TV, Sept. 21, 2015]
 
The PA considers any presence of Jews on the Temple Mount an "attack."
 
Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul posted on his Facebook page a video showing fighters of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades holding weapons. The chorus of the song encourages dying for Al-Aqsa:  
 
"O, Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah military wing),
Revolution
, honor, victory and generosity, 
My blood will be shed for Al-Aqsa
My blood will rebel until our return"
[Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul's
Facebook page, Oct. 1, 2015]
 
 
Op-ed by Samaa Hassan, appeared on "The morning tweet" - a daily column with changing authors
Headline: "This is Palestine, oh little one" 
"I was extremely happy when I saw my young daughter shed tears, as she held her novel mobile phone and watched, using its advanced technologies, a video about one of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs. The camera panned around, showing his home, his personal belongings.
The stifled tears continued to flow from the little one's eyes, until suddenly she stood up on the couch as though bitten by a scorpion and shouted: 'Mom, I want to die as a Martyr. I want to carry out a Martyrdom operation (i.e., terror attack) in order to kill some Israeli soldiers.'
More than they filled me with fear, my daughter's words filled me with joy, and I felt joyous because I could see myself during the days of the Stone Intifada(i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993). I was 17 at the time, that is, I was two years older than her, but I had the same youthful, fervent fighting spirit, forged from the love of Palestine, and we would leave school and cheer for Palestine and repeat the one and only slogan: 'In spirit, in blood, we will redeem you, O Palestine.'
My little one was glad, and I said to her, hugging her: 'Long live those past days,' and she is the one who used to [jokingly] scold me for being old-fashioned, and although she thinks that of me, something great unites us, for me and my daughter have dedicated our souls to it - to Palestine. My daughter decorated her phone with all the pictures she could find of the freedom Martyrs killed in the last few days, and I was very happy when she brought me an article about a father in Gaza who had named his newborn baby Muhannad after Martyr Muhannad Halabi, the Martyr of the Jerusalem operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 killed, see note). Gaza is and always has been this way, since we [Palestinians] share the sentiments of our sisters all over Palestine, and our demand is one, far removed from all the political wrangling, and from all those who try to divide the homeland into [a number of] small states."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 8, 2015]
