Deputy Secretary of Fatah: Football match between Israeli and Palestinian children is "a crime against humanity" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 8, 2014
Headline: "Rajoub: 'Normalization in sports with the Zionist occupation is a crime'"
     "[Deputy Secretary of Fatah's Central Committee,] Chairman of the Olympic Committee, and Chairman of the [Palestinian] Football Association Jibril Rajoub said any activity of normalization in sports with the Zionist enemy is a crime against humanity. He said that the position of the sports leadership on the issue is perfectly clear.
Rajoub's statements were made in response to a sports activity held a few days ago (i.e., a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children sponsored by the Israeli Peres Center for Peace)...
Rajoub emphasized the following points:
1. The game was an Israeli attempt to cover up their crimes against [Palestinian] athletes. It is a disgrace to use sports for this purpose.

2. If there are Israeli parties who believe sport is a means of spreading values and peace, they should come out against the occupation's crimes against Palestinian athletes, whether the restriction of their movement, the destruction of their [sports] facilities or the physical elimination of dozens of them...

3. For a while now the Palestinian sports leadership and community - the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, the Palestinian Olympic Committee and the Palestinian Football Association - have opposed such activities.

4. I demand that all individuals and institutions distance themselves from such activities, especially because their recurrence would arouse disgust and aversion towards all members of the [Palestinian] sports community."

National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine condemns Israeli-Palestinian football match, calls for an investigation 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 5, 2014
Headline: "The National Committee Against Normalization [in Palestine] condemned the 'Palestinian-Israeli' football match"
     "The Executive Office of the National Committee Against Normalization in Palestine published an announcement in which it condemned the participation of children from the West Bank in a football match between Palestinian and Israeli children, held by the Peres Center for Peace at the Gaza envelope (i.e., in Israel near the border with the Gaza Strip), near a Zionist kibbutz, which constitutes normalization [with Israel].
Secretary General of the National Committee [Against Normalization] Jihad Uweida said the committee's Executive Office was stunned by the timing and location of the match, at a time when the blood of our people and children in the Gaza Strip and of the Martyrs (Shahids) of the sports movements has not yet dried...
The Executive Office of the National Committee [Against Normalization] called on the heads of the Palestinian sports [community] and the Palestinian leadership to discover who is behind this 'normalization match' at such a time, and who benefits from holding meetings of this kind.
Uweida emphasized that the National Committee Against Normalization is surprised and astonished that while it is conducting an international campaign for expelling Israeli sports from the international sports system, and after international sports organizations expressed their intention of boycotting this entity [Israel], a Palestinian party would do this entity a free service."

Fatah condemns football match between Israeli and Palestinian kids as "an individual act, conceived by sick souls"

Headline: "Fatah in Yatta condemns normalization meetings with Israelis"
     "The [Fatah] branch leadership in Yatta held an urgent meeting to discuss the ramifications of the normalization matches held between Palestinian children from the city of Yatta villages and Israeli children, which were supervised by the Peres Center for Peace, and [held] in the presence of former President of the State of Israel Shimon Peres.
The meeting's participants strongly condemned this event, especially in light of the fact that our people are being subject to the most heinous racist attack, manifested in the murder of the children of Gaza and the West Bank by the most powerful war machine in the region.
[Fatah] branch secretary Dr. Kamal Makhamreh said: 'The occupation is attempting to improve its criminal image, which was revealed in the murder of our children in Gaza, by holding such normalization meetings, while using weak-minded people, who in turn have exploited the innocence of some children, deceived them and dragged them to this kind of normalization meetings. Therefore, we at Fatah's Yatta branch, emphasize that this was an individual act, conceived by sick souls that agreed to be humiliated for a handful of money...'
Makhamreh urged the residents to supervise their children and distance them from these kinds of activities, which damage our cause... The movement has demanded that the [Palestinian] Security Forces settle the account with these reckless people (i.e., the Palestinian organizers of the event)."

Palestinian official calls friendly football match between Israeli and Palestinian youth a "crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act" 
Source: Sama, independent Palestinian news agency, Sept. 3, 2014
     "Palestinian Olympic Committee member Abd Al-Salam Haniyeh denounced the match held between Palestinian and Israeli children. He considered it a crime and an unpatriotic and immoral act. Haniyeh said these matches are completely unacceptable to the sports community, the Olympic Committee, the Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs and the Palestinian Football Association.
He added: 'The [Palestinian] organizers of this match betrayed the blood of the children of Gaza and of the Martyrs (Shahid), which has yet to dry a week after the end of the barbaric Israeli aggression, which resulted in the deaths of more than 2,150 Martyrs, the wounding of more than 13,000 people and thousands of homes that were brought down on the heads of their inhabitants.
Haniyeh demanded that Chairman of the Palestinian Football Association Jibril Rajoub immediately interrogate the [Palestinian] organizers of the match, settle the account with them and prosecute them on charges of serious treason against the blood of the Martyrs and violation of the decisions made by the Palestinian sports community's leadership.
It should be noted that the sports meeting between Palestinian and Israeli youth was held in an Israeli settlement a few kilometers from the Gaza Strip's border with Israel. The meeting was organized by the Peres Center for Peace."

Headline:
"Palestinian and Israeli children participate in friendly football matches a few kilometers from the devastated Gaza Strip"
     "After a summer of brutal war, destruction and fatalities, Palestinian and Israeli children met on Monday [Sept. 1, 2014] to participate in football matches a few kilometers from the devastated Gaza Strip.
About a week after the ceasefire that put an end to the destructive war in Gaza, which lasted 50 days, approximately 80 children, ages 6-16, met for a tournament in Kibbutz Dorot, located in southern Israel, where rockets launched from the Gaza Strip had landed. The Israeli children came from communities located near the besieged Gaza Strip, while the Palestinian children came from Yatta in the southern Gaza Strip (sic, should be West Bank. Yatta is a city south of Hebron).
This tournament was part of an initiative that was launched 12 years ago, whose original aim was to bring Palestinian [boy]s from occupied East Jerusalem and Israeli boys closer together. Many of the children had already played in previous tournaments organized by the Peres Center for Peace, which is run by former Israeli President Shimon Peres...
Qusai, 11, said: 'I love it when we play together like this. I hope that one day there will be peace between Arabs and Jews and that there will be no more wars and death.'...
Peres, the 90-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate, said, while holding a football: 'Don't play against each other but with each other.'"

     "Summary of the statement of Fatah's Shabiba [student] movement in the West Bank:
1. To Fatah Shabiba members in all areas: More resistance and escalation [is required] against the occupation everywhere. Let's turn the land into hell for the enemy and announce it so clearly that it splits the sky: Resist, boycott, move forward, rise up - for the land is forbidden for the enemy, and all Shabiba members are potential Martyrs (Shahids) for our beloved Palestine.
2. To the masses of our proud Palestinian people: More national unity [is required], because unity is the condition for victory. Let each one of us fight in his own field, for each of us has a function, and every [form of] resistance has a role in liberation. Boycott, confront, declare revolution! This is our land. We will either live on it in dignity, or be gathered into the bosom of its beloved earth as Martyrs...
Start by yourself, come to the aid of your people [by]
- Destroying settlers' property
- Blocking settlement roads: stones, nails, tinder, tires
- Destroying settlement power, water and telephone lines
- Breaking the occupation's security cameras and attacking military observation posts
- Destroying the [separation] wall and cutting the barbed wire fences
- Israeli products are bullets with which it [Israel] kills your people
- Chase the settlers on your land at places of contact"

Palestinian kids tell Pope: Jesus was the first Palestinian refugee

     “The children of the Deheisheh refugee camp in the Bethlehem district called on Pope Francis, during his visit (May 2014) to the Al-Finiq Center in the refugee camp, to intervene to put an end to the suffering of the prisoners who have been hunger-striking for over a month, and the suffering of our people in the Yarmouk refugee camp [in Syria].
The following was said in a speech read out by one of the children in the presence of the Pope: ‘Despite the pain and the suffering caused by the occupation, we have not lost hope of living in peace at the present time, when we mark the 66th anniversary of the Nakba (i.e., ‘the catastrophe,’ Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) which was the most heinous war of ethnic cleansing in history. The continuation of the occupation is a crime against humanity, and our dream is to live in peace and freedom.’ The children gave His Holiness the Pope a food stamp in the name of Jesus, since he was the first refugee, and a wooden souvenir with a key symbolizing the right of return.”

     “In a letter written on the occasion of the Day commemorating Muhammad’s Night Journey and Ascent to Heaven, the Mufti of Lebanon, Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, said that the fact that Allah transported the Prophet from the Holy Mosque in Mecca to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem showed the deep religious connection between Mecca and Jerusalem in Islam.
In his letter, the Mufti… said: ‘Our deep wound has opened again. Palestine has been under foreign occupation since 1948; teach your children that Palestine is Arab land and an Arab country that was conquered by the Hebrew foreigner. [Teach them] that its liberation from the foreign occupation, so it may be purely Arab once more, is a holy charge entrusted to you from generation to generation, until Allah summons an upright leadership for this nation, which will lead this nation towards the liberation [of Palestine]… As in the past Omar ibn Al-Khattab (a prominent 7th- century caliph) liberated it from the Byzantines, and after him, Saladin Al-Ayyubi from the Europeans and Crusaders. Nations do not sell their homelands, nor do they relinquish them or any part of them to a foreigner, no matter how strong he may be.’”

Young boy recites poem: "Zion is Satan with a tail" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, May 14, 2014
Official PA TV program A Work of Art showed a child reciting the poem "Visa" by Egyptian poet Hisham El-Jakh.
PA TV host: What poem do you like to recite most?
Muhammad, creative boy who writes and recites poetry: The poem people liked the best, wherever I went, people asked me to recite the poem "Visa" by Hesham El-Gakh...
'When I was young I was taught that Arabness is my honor...
and that our lands extend from one end to the other,
and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail
and that our nation's armies are outstanding.'
Note: The poem describes what children have been taught by Arab leaders, opening with "When I was young I was taught...", but criticizes them for not acting according to their own teachings.
"My enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail" was one such teaching, the poem states, and criticizes the Arab world for its lack of unity, which prevents it from fulfilling the goals it has set.

[Culture Ministry Bureau Chief Muntasir] Al-Kam noted that the screening took place as part of the [Culture] Ministry’s program to encourage the audio-visual field through the screening of documentary films at various national and cultural events, since these films are a part of resistance on the ideological level, at a time when the Zionist entity’s schemes to destroy the Palestinian cause and steal its history and identity – and not just the land – are gaining momentum.”
