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.”

Fatah was the first to fight in the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) (Baha Al-Sa'id, an officer in the Preventive Security Forces, infiltrated an Israeli settlement on the border with Gaza) [parenthesis in source]...
Fatah was the first to defeat the Zionist enemy (Battle of Al-Karameh) [parenthesis in source]...

Song: "Under the rock, O hawk,
hide your prey - a child
Your brothers in captivity (i.e., in Israeli prisons) tell you to keep him...
You are from Hebron, O hawk, and all are proud of you...
By Allah, O brother, I won't rest until you see light, until I see you free...
With the rifle open the [prison] cell
Kidnap soldiers till we free my brothers...
Allah will strengthen your faith
The homeland’s sun is singing your name...

Notes: On June 12, 2014, Israeli teens Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists while they were hitchhiking near Hebron. The boys' bodies were found hidden under rocks by Israeli security forces near Hebron on June 30, 2014. They appeared to have been shot to death soon after their abduction.

In October 2011, the Israeli government agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prisons in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.

      "Fatah joyfully welcomes the Palestinian resistance. Our men are on the frontline of the confrontation in all sectors. We will never tire of reiterating that throughout history, our movement's hand was the strongest hand in the confrontation with the occupation and still is. Don't forget that the occupation, in its confrontation with our army in 1982, lost 667 dead and 150,000 wounded - far more than it ever lost before or since in such a short period, which lasted [just] 88 days. The great ability we demonstrated in the second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) is well known. Our presence on the ground now can be testified to. There is no resistance without Fatah. Allah is with the resistance, both now and in the future. Let the members of Fatah stand proud. Fatah still holds the world cup for fighting, thanks to its long presence on the ground, the enemy's huge losses in its confrontations with it [Fatah], as well as its [Fatah's] numerous Martyrs (Shahids), wounded and prisoners."

Abbas advisor calls Hamas' use of terror tunnels "quality operations," claims Israel is lying about its casualties 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, July 24, 2014
Official PA TV program Palestine This ‎Morning hosted Dr. Sabri Saidam, Deputy ‎Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary ‎Council and President Mahmoud Abbas’ ‎advisor for communications and ‎information technology ‎
Official PA TV host: “We saw this morning ‎that that the occupation powers have ‎arrested Israeli soldiers for leaking ‎information about the Israeli casualties. ‎And they consider this a blow to Israeli ‎propaganda, and to what is disseminated ‎and presented [to the public], as if only an ‎insignificant number of Israelis had been ‎killed, while it is clear that the opposite is ‎the case.”‎
Sabri Saidam, Deputy Secretary of the ‎Fatah Revolutionary Council: “For ‎decades, Israel has refrained from ‎announcing its casualties during war in ‎order to avoid harming the morale of its ‎soldiers. We are seeing [things] we ‎haven’t seen in previous wars. We are ‎seeing quality operations of infiltration ‎behind the Israeli occupation’s lines, and ‎tunnels designed for that purpose, as well ‎as quality attacks that have done damage ‎to the Israeli army – so there is a state of ‎embarrassment and confusion. I say, the ‎‎[Israeli] army may well be losing its ‎balance. But perhaps the most annoying ‎thing [for Israel] is the talk about the ‎kidnapped soldier... But even more ‎important was the report yesterday of the ‎airline companies having cancelled their ‎flights to the [Israeli] Lod airport. And this ‎airport – that is, the security system ‎crashed, and the missile battery defending ‎the airport can no longer stop these ‎attacks, since a rocket fell one kilometer ‎from the airport.”‎

Hamas falsely accuses Israel of targeting civilians while showing images of its own attack on a schoolbus that killed teen

Al-Aqsa TV host: “Most of the wounded, as ‎well as the Martyrs (Shahids), are children, ‎women and elderly… This gives us ‎evidence of the extent of the Zionist ‎occupation’s crimes, and [proves] that it is ‎attacking civilians directly. [The case is] ‎not, as it claims, that in any war zone ‎civilians are bound to die and collateral ‎damage is bound to be caused to civilians ‎‎– this is true when there are few civilians, ‎or when the number of casualties is small ‎relative to the duration of the war – but an ‎aggression that has led to 650 Martyrs and ‎over 4,000 wounded in 17 days refutes ‎the Zionist version and justifications.”

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

Hamas song mocks Israeli MIA Oron Shaul

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!
