Fatah glorifies the knife:
"We'll be victorious or die" 
 
  
 
Fatah honors terrorist stabber,
 "escorts its Martyr son to his wedding"
 
PA and Fatah continue libel claiming
Palestinians are victims of Israeli "executions in cold blood"
alleging Israel fabricates the stabbing attacks, plants knives

Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Abbas' Fatah movement continues to glorify stabbing attacks. The image above, showing a masked man brandishing a knife and holding up two fingers in a V for "Victory" was posted on the official Facebook page of the Fatah Movement with the text: "We'll be victorious or die." [Oct. 23, 2015]

In the same spirit of support for terror, Fatah publicized its admiration for a terrorist stabber. 
The movement announced that it "escorts its Martyr son," Raed Jaradat, "who carried out the stabbing operation at the Beit Anoun Junction" to his "wedding," alluding to the Islamic belief that Martyrs marry 72 Virgins in Paradise:
 
"The path of the struggle
Palestinian National Liberation movement Fatah, North Hebron branch, escorts its Martyr (Shahid) son to his wedding
Raed Saket Abd Al-Rahman Jaradat
who carried out the stabbing operation at the Bet Anoun Junction"
 [Fatah Movement Official Facebook page, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
Whereas, in this case Fatah glorified the stabber, most of the time the PA repeats the libel, documented by Palestinian Media Watch, claiming Israel fabricates the stabbing attacks as an excuse to kill "innocent" Palestinians and plants the knives at the scenes of the attacks to frame them.
 
A cartoon in the official PA daily repeats this lie. It shows a religious Jew, the image cartoonists use to depict a "settler," planting a knife on a small Palestinian boy, using a fishing rod, while riding on the back of an Israeli soldier. The cartoon echoes the PA libel that Israel kills Palestinian children "in cold blood" and plants knives at the scene afterwards. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
Earlier this month, the PA Ministry of Information issued a statement that included the allegation that Israel is making up the Palestinian attacks when in fact, they claim, the Palestinians are "victims":
 
"The Israeli PR... disseminates a misleading narrative, which shows the attacker as victim and the attacked as 'terrorist.'"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 10, 2015]
 
Secretary-General of the PLO Executive Committee and member of the Fatah Central Committee Saeb Erekat reiterated the libel that Israel carries out field executions, and described Palestinians as "protecting ourselves with the bodies of our sons and daughters":
 
"The Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people still continues, through summary executions and collective punishments.' Likewise, he emphasized: 'We are protecting ourselves with the bodies of our sons and daughters, because Israel does not protect itself, but rather its crimes, occupation and settlement."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
One of the Palestinian terrorists attacking with knives who have been presented by the official PA daily as victims of Israel was Dania Arshid. The 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who was asked to identify herself at a military checkpoint near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Oct. 25, 2015, then ran towards the Israeli border policemen with a drawn knife. She was shot and killed by the soldiers. The paper reported that "the occupation executed student Dania Arshid," and that Israeli soldiers had "asked her to take a knife out of her bag. The girl could do nothing but refuse as she didn't have any sharp object in her bag, which caused the soldiers to shoot her on the spot." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
The official PA daily also referred to "the falseness of the occupation's claims" when it described the "death as a Martyr" of terrorist Mahmoud Ghneimat,a 20-year-old Palestinian terrorist who, together with another terrorist, stabbed and injured an 18-year-old man in the Israeli town of Beit Shemesh. They were both shot by Israeli police and Ghneimat died of his wounds. The official PA daily called it an "a summary execution" and said Ghneimat had been killed "under the allegation that he had stabbed a settler." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 23, 2015]

Headline: "Erekat: The occupation is the source of evil in the region and it has to end"
"Secretary-General of PLO Executive Committee [and Fatah Central Committee member] Saeb Erekat called on the US administration to stop relating to Israel as if it is a country above the law, since the occupation is the source of evil in the region and must end. Erekat said yesterday [Oct. 25, 2015] at a press conference in the Palestinian embassy in Cairo, in the presence of the Palestinian Ambassador to Egypt and permanent representative in the Arab League Jamal Al-Shubaki: 'We may not allow any of our compasses to deviate from focusing on ending the occupation, [finding] a solution to the Palestinian issue, in all its aspects, and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. Because the key to peace in the region is the establishment of a Palestinian state, the freedom of the Palestinian people and its national honor.' ...
He said: 'The Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people still continues, through summary executions and collective punishments.' Likewise, he emphasized: 'We are protecting ourselves with the bodies of our sons and daughters, because Israel does not protect itself, but rather its crimes, occupation and settlement.'
Erekat said: 'Whoever wants calm, must stop the aggression against the Palestinian people immediately, and treat the root of the problem, which is the continuation of the occupation. Whoever wants to fight ISIS and terror in the region, must understand that this can't be done without drying up the quagmire of Israeli occupation in the region.'"
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
Headline: "[PA] Ministry of Information: 'The occupation is the basis of the incitement and terror on the face of the earth"
"The [PA] Ministry of Information stated that the occupation is the basis of the incitement and terror on the face of the earth, and that the Israeli PR, which has been packed with lies since the Nakba ("the catastrophe," the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), disseminates a misleading narrative, which shows the attacker as victim and the attacked as 'terrorist.'
The ministry made a statement yesterday [Oct. 9, 2015]  that the intense war which Prime Minister of the occupation state Benjamin Netanyahu is carrying out against the [PA] leadership, the people, and the Palestinian media, and the invented allegations of incitement, constitute a direct continuation of a misleading propaganda, which complements the episodes of [Israeli] terror as part of an effort to intimidate and attempt to silence the voice of truth and conscience, in order to prevent the press from disseminating the crimes of the occupation against our people and its institutions."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 10, 2015]
 
 
Headline: "The occupation executed student Dania Arshid in Hebron and settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]"
"Yesterday [Oct. 25, 2015] student Dania Arshid, 17, died as a Martyr (Shahid) next to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) after occupation soldiers, gathered near the doors of the mosque, shot at her during another [Israeli] crime of execution.
Local sources noted that the occupation forces stopped the girl, who was a student, when she went through the military checkpoint near the main gate of the Ibrahimi Mosque, and asked her to take a knife out of her bag. The girl could do nothing but refuse as she didn't have any sharp object in her bag, which caused the soldiers to shoot her on the spot."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2015]
 
Dania Arshid - 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who when asked to identify herself at a military checkpoint near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Oct. 25, 2015, refused and ran towards the Israeli border policemen with a drawn knife. She was shot and killed by them.
 
 
Headline: "The execution of one young [Palestinian] person and wounding of another, and Hebrew sites expose the falseness of the occupation's claims"
"A young person died as a Martyr (Shahid) and another was injured from gunfire of the occupation's police in Jerusalem in a summary execution operation, while conflicts in different areas of the West Bank and Gaza Strip continued...
The young Mahmoud Khaled Ghneimat, 20, from the village of Surif, north of Hebron, died yesterday [Oct. 22, 2015], after he was injured by the occupation's gunfire in the settlement of Bet Shemesh, west of Jerusalem, under the allegation that he had stabbed a settler."
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 23, 2015]
