Violence and terror
Glorifying terrorists and terror
Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].

This violent image of a dagger being thrust into the Star of David has appeared hundreds of times in a video clip for children on PA TV, from 2001 – 2008.

Glorifying terrorists and terror
Palestinian society’s habitual glorification of terrorists as heroes and role models is one of its most effective means of promoting terror. In honoring the worst killers, the PA is simultaneously giving approval to murder and enticing future terrorists with assurances of glory and honor if they succeed in killing. Terror and murder become the Palestinian’s ticket to fame, honor and glory.

The terrorists honored most highly amongst Palestinian society are those who have killed the greatest number. Abd Al-Baset Udeh, killer of 30 at the Passover Seder massacre, had a soccer tournament for 14-year-olds named for him. His brother was honored with distributing the trophies. Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist bus hijacker (led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children) has had summer camps, schools, graduation ceremonies and sporting events named for her, as well as many TV documentaries honoring her. Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009]. Thaer Hammad, who as a lone gunman murdered 10 Israelis in 2002, was glorified by the official PA daily as “the hero of the Intifada."

This adulation of the worst terrorists and praise for their heroism reflects the policy of the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. This video shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas,
issuing “greetings of honour and esteem” to mass murderers, whom he publicly names, one by one:
“I send greetings of honour and esteem to all prisoners...
Said 'Ataba (serving life sentence for murder in terror attack)…
Marwan Barghouti (serving 5 life sentences for planning murderous terror attacks)
Ahmad Sa'adat (serving 30 years in prison for heading the terrorist organization PFLP; honored on PA TV for planning the assassination of Israeli Minister Ze'evi in 2001, but never tried)
Aziz Dweik (Hamas leader, chairman of Palestinian parliament)
Jamal Huweil (life sentence for planning terror attacks)
Jamal Tirawi (life sentence for café suicide terror attack).
Greetings to you from our people.”

     "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"

Hamas song mocks Israeli MIA Oron Shaul 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 22, 2014
Hamas TV broadcast a song celebrating their claimed kidnapping of missing Israeli soldier Oron Shaul. Shaul was declared MIA after his Armored Personnel Carrier was destroyed during combat in Gaza on July 17, 2014. Hamas claimed to have kidnapped him. On Friday, July 26, 2014, the IDF declared that Oron Shaul was 'a soldier killed in action whose burial site is unknown.'  The song opens with a fictitious phone call of someone trying to call the missing soldier:

[Phone rings]

(Israeli:) "Hello?"
(Hamas:) "Yes."
(Israeli:) "Am I speaking to Shaul Oron?"
(Hamas:) "What Shaul, my dear? You are talking to the Resistance. The number you dialed is temporarily kidnapped, thank you. Sincerely, the Palestine Defense Forces."

"Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
We've taken a second [Gilad] Shalit, a young, blond-haired boy
Congratulations on this Ramadan victory. This is the most beautiful holiday gift.

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
6092065 is poor Shaul's number - the Palestinians broadcast it.
Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
Get out of here [Israelis] wherever you are, your face is changing colors...

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
Netanyahu, before you go to sleep, go to the toilet
Put a rubber sheet under the blanket and have the potty next to you!"

Now the occupation is forced – despite its attempts to hide and not publicize ‎‎[it], and despite the fact that the Qassam [Brigades’] announcement was a painful ‎surprise for them, and the Zionist occupation looked for all kinds of excuses, counting ‎the name of the [kidnapped] soldier among those killed, and then removing his name ‎and picture – now it is forced to admit that there is a missing soldier in the hands of the ‎resistance.” ‎

Official PA TV reporter: “Not only the mood on the street in Gaza [has been affected]: ‎The news has affected all Palestinians in all areas, in the West Bank and in the Gaza ‎Strip – meaning: There was widespread joy, a feeling of satisfaction… We received the ‎news while we were in the Al-Shifa Hospital, and this rear courtyard [indicates the ‎courtyard] literally became a courtyard of celebration: Cheers, shouts of ‘Allah is ‎greater’, cries of joy over this achievement, this achievement of the Palestinian ‎resistance (i.e., Hamas) – especially because most of the people here in the Al-Shifa ‎Hospital are from among those who suffered from the Shuja’iya massacre (i.e., civilian ‎casualties from Israeli bombing of Hamas’ terror infrastructure and tunnel network)… ‎We’ve seen wounded people leaving their rooms [and coming] to this courtyard to ‎celebrate this revenge, as they call it – the revenge of the Palestinian resistance for ‎this massacre. There was great joy indeed; and there were also [celebratory] shots fired ‎into the sky, as well as fireworks, through which the public expressed its great joy over ‎this achievement, and they hope there will be an additional achievement (i.e., ‎kidnapping), so that [pauses] – a small contribution on the part of the resistance, to ‎restore some of the rights of the citizens who suffered so much in Shuja’iya.”‎

Fatah glorifies female army unit training to launch rockets, presents suicide bombers as role models 
Source: Facebook page of the Fatah Mobilization and Organization Commission, July 10, 2014
Female fighter: Roger. Roger.
Tv reporter: Another aspect of the Palestinian woman's role in all areas is being created here. She is not merely the man's partner in domestic life, but his companion wherever he is; on the battlefield, she is at his side on the frontline, and fulfills an active role in training generations of resistance [fighters], who will confront the "invincible" army. With willpower stronger than mountains, these young women part from their children, leave their homes and go to the battlefield carrying burial shrouds to fight in the ranks of the Palestinian resistance in the Gaza Strip. They thereby strive to become an important part of the path of Jihad and the struggle - the path walked by Dalal Mughrabi, Hanadi Jaradat and Reem Riyashi... Um Salim, member of [Fatah's] Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades:
Female fighter: We are young women, but we can do the impossible... We support our boys, our husbands and our leaders to liberate Palestine, in the way of leader Yasser Arafat. We are the sisters of Dalal Mughrabi. We will continue to walk the path...
TV reporter: The woman in Palestine is no longer a prisoner of her home or work, but constitutes the foundation of the [young] generations' education and the occupation's defeat.

Hamas propaganda: Iron Dome is "a failed project," our rockets "are hitting their targets... causing deaths and casualties"

Hamas TV host: "The enemy conceals every place rockets fall, every loss of human life and all damage to property. It seems that what is reaching us from the Zionist media here and there and what is leaked is just a small portion. [The enemy] knows that in this way, it may affect us and the resistance psychologically, but we are certain that the rockets are hitting their targets with precision, and that these rockets are causing deaths and casualties among the occupation soldiers as well, not only among the settlers - and this hurts the Zionist enemy."
