Fatah: Terrorist involved in attacks that killed Israelis who also murdered a Palestinian "collaborator" "is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine" 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, Feb. 19, 2015
     “The hero of the famous Ein Arik operation (i.e., terror attack), the heroic Martyr (Shahid) prisoner Shadi Said Al-Saaideh… Shadi is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine, its youth and heroes of Palestine. He was born from the womb of Palestinian suffering on March 8, 1981 in a diaspora refugee camp in Jordan, and returned to the Gaza Strip after the signing of the Oslo Accords… With the start of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., the PA terror campaign 2000-2005) he joined Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
The famous Ein Arik operation:
On February 19, 2002, he [Al-Saaideh] drew his weapon in defense of his homeland and his nation. He went towards the Ein Arik military checkpoint, near the village of Ein Arik, west of Ramallah, together with one of his comrades in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, and carried out a glorious operation (i.e., terror attack) which will continue to shine in the books of the resistance and the self-sacrificing operations (Fida'i).
Shadi, the hero of the famous Ein Arik operation – that extraordinary self-sacrificing operation which shocked the Israeli security establishment and rocked the occupation to its very foundations. For he shot at Israeli soldiers gathered at the Ein Arik military checkpoint, killing 8 soldiers and wounding others, before he and his friend succeeded in retreating.”

PA TV children's program: "Treachery has been their [Jews'] nature from the days of Moses" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 26, 2014
Official PA TV children’s program The Best Home.

Girl tells a story: “This home was the home of our father, and the foreigners came to banish us. After all, we and they were friends and loved each other long ago. Jonah helped Fatima with the laundry and Fatima boiled milk for her, and lit the candle for her on Sabbath. It never occurred to us to hurt them, but the truth is that after a few years they took over our land although they never [even] walked the whole of it. Rather, they were scattered in different places, and this doesn’t tell us they have historical roots in Palestine. We are not surprised, since treachery has been inherent in them from the days of Moses the prophet until the present day. May any exploiter’s trickery return upon his own neck. Say Amen with me.”

Girl recites a poem by Mahmoud Darwish:
“Write down!
I am an Arab.
You have stolen the orchards of my ancestors
And the land which I cultivated
Along with my children
And you left nothing for us
Except for these rocks.
So will the State take them
As it has been said?!
Write down on the top of the first page:
I do not hate people
Nor do I encroach
But if I become hungry
The usurper's flesh will be my food
Of my hunger
And my anger!”

PA TV host: “Bravo, you are wonderful, really talented! What do you think of this – come every once in a while and tell us a story with your beautiful style.”

Official PA TV program The Best Home showed a young girl named Linda singing a song.
Song text: 

“They have burdened you with concern for the homeland;
They have wrapped you in it since you were small.
Even the day you died a Martyr (Shahid), they did not allow the procession to march.
They banned the song and the prelude, imprisoned the poet and the singer.
They forced a life of humiliation [on us]; They killed the street and the masses.
Keep standing firm; woe to you should you bow your head;
He who bows his head lives in humiliation.
Rise above glory and march; draw a machine gun on your arm;
If they stop my voice or pen, teach my songs by heart, do not forget.
If they stop the word inside the poet’s heart,
It must explode.”
Official PA TV host: “Bravo. Your voice is beautiful. You’re so talented. Bravo. But we always challenge the occupation – how? With our love of life, with our smiles, with our hope, with our search for happiness and by continuing along our path to happiness.”

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."

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."

The right of return – the fact that we continue to think about it and don’t forget that we have a land that was stolen from us and will return to us one day – that angers the occupation.

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)."

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."

"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.'"
