They said: ‘Landless.’
We said: ‘Not for long.’
They said: ‘A black [refugee] tent.’
We said: ‘We have grown used to suffering.’
Oh mother, I have donned a shrouds [made from] from the sash of the revolution,
Oh life, Dalal Mughrabi taught us how to keep our heads high
Faced with grief, we will keep our heads high
Despite the darkness of oppression and the callousness of the jailor,
Oh Dalal, we will complete the journey.
We have learned from your sacrifice how to be free women.”

     “Fatah’s Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a press release in response to the declarations made by the extreme right-wing Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, demanding that President Mahmoud Abbas [publicly] declare his recognition of Israel as a Jewish state at Birzeit University…
In its statement, Fatah’s Shabiba said that Netanyahu and his right-wing government should learn from history, which has proven at every stage that nations yearning for freedom, justice and independence inevitably achieve victory, and that occupation, racism and darkness are fated to vanish. It [the movement] noted in its statement that every olive tree and every speck of dust in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Acre, Safed, Nablus, Ramallah, Hebron, Gaza and all of Palestine recognizes the true owners of the land, for Palestinian land is alive and knows its original inhabitants, and knows who the new invaders are. [The message also stated that] the Nakba (“the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of our people, their expulsion from their villages and cities and the destruction of [their] villages over 66 years ago, will not erase the facts nor change the true face of the land."

Schoolgirls sing slogan about massacre of Jews 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Mar. 6, 2014
Official PA TV program In a Fighter’s Home showed images of a procession of schoolgirls on their way to Mutaz Washaha’s mourning tent. The girls are shown chanting loudly, “[Remember] Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!”
During the program, Washaha was repeatedly referred to as a “hero.”

Note: Mutaz Washaha was a member of the military wing of the National Front for the Liberation of Palestine. He was released after serving time in an Israeli prison for carrying out shooting attacks. He was killed on Feb. 27, 2014 by an Israel security force that had been sent to arrest him on suspicions of terrorist activity. After Washaha had barricaded himself in a building and refused to give himself up, the forces fired a missile at the building, stormed it, and found Washaha’s body.
Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were killed in the battle, which marked the end of the Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see this event as a precursor to future wars against Jews. At extremist gatherings and rallies, this slogan is often chanted as a threat to Jews, implying that they should expect to be defeated and massacred again by Muslims.
Fatah Facebook: Before teaching children to read and write, teach them "Palestine cannot be divided" 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, Mar. 5, 2014
     "We educate our children on the national anthem every morning. They will memorize the anthem of 'return'; they will engrave the four-colored [Palestinian] flag on their hearts; they will learn the foundations of the revolution before they learn to read and write; they will only agree to one rule, which cannot be added to, subtracted from, or calculated: that Palestine cannot be divided."

The text was accompanied by a photo of a teacher pointing to a map of "Palestine" replacing all of Israel drawn on the blackboard, with the explanatory text rejecting Israeli jurisdiction over Israeli cities: "Acre, Haifa, Jaffa, Ramle, Safed, Beit Shean, were and will remain Palestinian cities."

Official PA daily: Hamas suspends teaching of human rights curriculum that calls for "peaceful resistance" 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 14, 2014
     “The Education Ministry of the deposed Hamas government announced yesterday [Feb. 13, 2014] that it has reached an agreement with UNRWA to suspend teaching human rights as a subject in the agency’s schools in Gaza because [the curriculum] contains dangerous inaccuracies that are detrimental to the Palestinian cause and to Palestinian and Islamic culture . Mu’tasim Al-Minawi, a senior official in the deposed government’s education ministry, said of the UNRWA’s curriculum that it “distorts and belittles the refugee issue and describes the refugees [simply] as people who fled rather than as [victims] who were forcefully expelled and had massacres perpetrated against them, forcing them to leave their homes; this is a distortion and a blurring of the truth.’ …
In an announcement posted on the Ministry’s website, Osama Al-Mazini, the deposed government’s minister of education, said: ‘We cannot allow the UNRWA agency to unilaterally introduce new curricula.’ He added that the human rights subject ‘ignores the Nakba (i.e., “catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) of the Palestinian people, and works to erase the culture of the right of return and to instill one of peaceful resistance and submission as a means of restoring the rights [of the Palestinians].’”

PA TV program Palestine This Morning episode about the 49th anniversary of the launch of the Palestinian revolution. The program hosted the Secretary-General of Fatah’s Shabiba youth movement, Hassan Faraj.
PA TV host: “Peaceful popular resistance, standing firm on the land –these are the headlines of the time, if one may say so – because there aren’t many options.”
Secretary-General of Fatah’s Shabiba youth movement Hassan Faraj: “We disagree with the leadership somewhat on the issue of peaceful popular resistance. It’s our right, the [right of the] Palestinian people under occupation, to resist in all forms and ways. Perhaps, non-peaceful popular resistance is suitable for this stage. All our resistance is peaceful and in the end, we’re protecting ourselves. All international laws guarantee our [right] to resist with all means and ways. A small boy holding a stone who expresses his anger - this isn’t called violent popular resistance.”

New radio station for kids meant to “oppose” Israel’s “ugliness and violence” 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 12, 2013
     “The Alrowwad Culture and Theater Society launched the first Palestinian radio station for children, the ‘194 pioneers,’ which is the number of the resolution dealing with the right of return of the Palestinian refugees that was adopted by the UN on December 11, 1948. This is the first radio station of its kind in terms of its cultural programs… and the children themselves run it. District Governor of Bethlehem Abd Al-Fattah Hamayel welcomed this pioneering idea in Palestine…
Director of The Alrowwad Society, Abd Al-Fattah Abu Srour, stated that the idea to establish the first radio station for children in Palestine, which the children will run on their own, is the extension of a beautiful idea for opposing the occupation’s ugliness and violence and that this gives the children an opportunity to express themselves without anyone’s intervention.”

Hamas promotes class for high school students teaching military-type training 
Source: Al-Jadeed TV-Lebanon, Nov. 24, 2013
Al-Jadeed TV narrator: “The Abu Dhar Al-Ghifari High School bell rings for the valor class. Valor class is the name given by the [Hamas] Ministry of Education for this new subject of study that was added to high school activities. The program includes physical training and learning methods of self-defense, methods of civil defense and semi-military skills.”
Abu Dhar Al-Ghifari High School principal, Khaled Hashish: “This is physical training that is akin to military training but has nothing to do with the army. Our schools are not associated with the army even if this training exists, [training] which teaches the youth to be strong, noble of spirit, work hard and be active.”
Al-Jadeed TV narrator: “The Ministry of Education of the Hamas Movement says this program started during President Yasser Arafat’s time but was not implemented due to Israeli opposition. This is the second year of the implementation of the program that started out as an elective [class] and became mandatory.”
Al-Jadeed TV reporter or narrator: “The valor class program, which has become a daily activity for all students in boys’ high schools, is carried out with coordination between the [Hamas] Ministry of Education and the Ministry of the Interior. According to them, its purpose is to vent the negative energy that builds up in these youth because of the violence that surrounds them... Those in charge of the program deny they are attempting to turn the schools into military [schools] as circulated by Western and Israeli media. The matter is much simpler and the weapons with which the students train is merely made of wood.”

The event bore the slogan ‘The Call of Palestine’s Children,’ as declared by Shaymaa Shaaban, a lecturer in the Department of Culture at University College, who also stressed that talented children were chosen so that they would express their rights, and that the focus was [on] children from kindergarten age through fifth grade…

     “The Refugee Center in the Aida refugee camp yesterday [Nov. 2, 2013] held a festival for the camp’s children to welcome released prisoner Khaled Al-Azraq who had been absent from the camp for 24 years due to his being imprisoned by Israel.
During the festival, the children gave speeches, there were artistic performances and a show performed by the children of the Refugee Center, and the children and [newly-] released Al-Azraq got to know each other. The celebration was preceded by a parade of hundreds of the refugee camp’s children wearing shirts with Al-Azraq’s picture. [The parade] set out from the Center, across from the Key and Gate of Return, passed through the camp streets [until it] reached Al-Azraq’s family home, where the festival was held.”

Note: Khaled Al-Azraq - placed an explosive device in Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda open market on May 28, 1990. The bomb killed 71 year-old Shimon Cohen and injured 9. Al-Azraq was serving a life sentence in prison, but was released in October 2013 as one of the 104 terrorists that Israel agreed to release, which was the PA's precondition for renewing negotiations.
The “’Israeli’ entity… has no legitimacy or right to exist on Palestinian land” 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Nov. 1, 2013
Op-ed by Muhammad Jaradat, reviewing the Israeli film “Lemon Tree”:
     “After watching Israeli director Eran Riklis’ Israeli film ‘Lemon Tree’, I tried to identify the picture depicted by the movie’s director and its heroes. I came to the conclusion that this is Israeli cinema’s new way of portraying the nature of the conflict that has been raging for more than 65 years. [In this portrayal] the image of an ideal Jew [appears], peace-loving and merciful, who loves everyone, especially his Palestinian neighbors – as long as those neighbors don’t start a fight with him – as if the Palestinians are the reason for everything that has happened since 1948 and that is still happening; as if the Palestinians are the ones who attacked Jews, set fire to their cities and villages and carried out ethnic cleansing in them, and not the Hagana, Stern and Palmach gangs (i.e., Jewish pre-state armed defense units)!
Despite all this, the Israeli director does identify with the peaceful Palestinian who does not harm the State of Israel, but whose rights are still violated and whose land is stolen under the pretext of [providing] security and protection to Israeli citizens…
The [Israeli-Palestinian] problem, as the Israeli Left presents it, stems from the terrorists – the legitimate Palestinian resistance – whose presence will prevent an Arab-Israeli bond and peaceful coexistence. As if the problem did not stem fundamentally from the existence of an ‘Israeli’ entity, which has no legitimacy or right to exist on Palestinian land, and which is the reason for all this destruction and the root of the problems.”

Note: Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children partially funded by the PA. The magazine includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers.
