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].

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.”

Op-ed in official PA daily glorifies terrorist responsible for the murder of 125 people, refers to Israel as a “myth that was born out of emptiness” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 19, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad’ on the 30th anniversary of his death as a Martyr”

“His dream of a comprehensive revolution was very early, and the distance between his mind and his fingertips through which he implemented his ideas was very short, a negligible distance. Therefore, Khalil Al-Wazir (i.e., terrorist Abu Jihad, responsible for murder of 125) the youth, who in 1954 was still wearing school pants and riding his bicycle, had already realized the beginning of his great dream and expressed his ideas by creating the first bomb that was planted in the water project in the Israeli Nahal Oz settlement located in the Gaza Envelope (i.e., area in Israel near the Gaza border. Possibly refers to an attempted bombing of the Zohar water reservoir in 1955 –Ed.)
That same small explosive was an expression of the fetus that developed within the oppressed and wounded Palestinian people, whose wound was disparaged by all, and who the large [powers] belittled, openly conspired against, and stole its homeland and gave it for free as a gift to a myth that was born out of emptiness, whose name is Israel.”

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir)
- a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks in the 1960’s - 1980’s.

Khalil Al-Wazir, at a time when our people is remembering the unique commander’s acts of heroism and his self-sacrificing operations (i.e., terror attacks) that shattered the occupation’s mentality, as he was the First Bullet and the First Stone…

Al-Qidwa explained that our people is particularly proud of Dalal because she is the woman and sister who represented prominent pioneering in the Palestinian activity and struggle for the people and homeland. He also said that Dalal will remain in memory, heart, and mind as a model in our lives and as a symbol of which we are proud.
He added: ‘The national movement – even if it changed the methods of struggle according to the period – did not bargain and will not bargain over our people’s right to use all of the forms that are permitted by international law and the decisions of the international institutions.’ Al-Qidwa continued: ‘We will not relinquish our revolutionary moral values and our history; we will praise it and adhere to it because without it we would not be here today. We are proud of all of the Martyrs of the revolution, not only of Dalal and [former PLO and PA President] Yasser Arafat, but rather of all our other great leaders..."

She raised the flag of the [Palestinian] state, and it was the bravest victory...

Hammad’s letter comes 16 years after the heroic operation (i.e., terror attack) that he carried out in 2002, which is known as the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation. In mentioning it, Hammad noted that his motive for carrying out the operation was his belief in the national obligation and his attempt to inculcate the continuation of the way of resistance on which the Palestinian people has gone throughout the years of its rebellion against the occupation…"

Fatah official attacks US over Jerusalem decision, demonizes Israel, and accuses Israel of “defilement of the sanctified places in Jerusalem,” and calls riots and terror attacks as “epics of courage” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Mar. 6, 2018
Fatah Central Committee Secretary and Head of the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs Jibril Rajoub: “What American President [Donald Trump] did when he omitted Jerusalem with a single stroke from the final resolution issues provides a recipe for continuation of the war and adds fuel to the fire, and this is inappropriate conduct... The US, led by Trump, is working to cover up for the organized state terror that is being led by a government that includes extremist fanatics, while the actions of murdering and arresting children, destroying homes, and expropriating lands constitute the height of terror, which requires international intervention to restrain its wild behavior... The official, settlement, rabbinic, and Jewish extremism is what feeds the phenomena of extremism in the region, through that which the settlers are committing with the support of the occupation government: arson, murder, expropriation, imprisonment, humiliation, and defilement of the sanctified places in Jerusalem – and especially the incessant invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which is thanks to American support and partnership…
The people of Jerusalem – who in July 2017 recorded epics of courage with their bared chests by defending the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem (refers to riots and terror attacks; see note below –Ed.) – raise their eyes to the young Muslims through you (i.e., participants at the conference) with much hope, faith, and resolution.”

Official PA TV program Giants of Endurance, on released prisoners in the Tulkarem district, hosting Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake: “This people greatly appreciates the prisoners for being prisoners of freedom, and this is a political message and response to the attack that the occupation authorities are carrying out against the Palestinian prisoners through racist laws and legislation and aggression against the prisoners’ rights, with the latest of them being the bill connected to holding or stealing the Palestinian tax money on the pretext of aid to the families of the prisoners, Martyrs (Shahids), and wounded (see note below –Ed.) . We are meeting- it is our right to visit them, it is our right to celebrate them, it is our right to rejoice with them after the release so that we will tell the world that the prisoners’ cause is a central cause and a basic cause. These prisoners are prisoners of freedom and legitimate fighters for the right to self-determination. They are not terrorists and they are not criminals as the Israeli occupation authorities keep claiming. Martyrs have fallen inside the prisons; prisoners, sick people, wounded, and t hose suffering from very serious illnesses have ascended to Heaven. They are witness to how the prisons have become a place of sowing death and sowing oppression among the Palestinian people. They are witness to many thousands of prisoners who have been arrested on a daily basis, the phenomenon of arrest has become a daily phenomenon – every day there are arrests. People have gone out and entered such that a quarter of the Palestinian people have entered the Israeli occupation’s prisons.”

“[Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor] Liberman’s bill, a bill that only a fascist Israeli mentality could think up: The salaries of those who carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks) – the prisoners, of course – will be transferred to a fund to aid the victims of what he calls ‘terror’ (see note below –Ed.).

On Feb. 11, 2018, the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation was slated to review a bill proposed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense that would deduct the amount of money the PA pays terrorists and their families from the tax money Israel collects for the PA. The bill would enable the deducted money to be used for infrastructure benefitting all West Bank residents, compensation awarded to terror victims in lawsuits against the PA or individual terrorists, and projects aimed at eliminating terror.

The article summarizes the different Palestinian “intifadas.” The information provided regarding the Palestinian wave of terror in 2015 supports the Israeli narrative, according to which most of the Palestinians who were killed were killed while carrying out or attempting to carry out terror attacks. This contradicts the Palestinian claims at the time that Israelis were carrying out summary executions of innocents and planting knives next to innocent Palestinian victims so that the Israelis could claim they were terrorists. –Ed.

    “The Al-Aqsa uprising in 2015 (i.e., Palestinian terror wave, 40 murdered) that broke out spontaneously against the Israeli occupation’s insistence on interfering in the affairs of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and continuing its Judaization. It continued for approximately one year, and during that year 250 [Palestinian] civilians died as Martyrs (Shahids), 161 of them while carrying out stabbing operations against the occupation’s soldiers and its settlers.”

Headline: “The Palestinian Martyrs' Day ceremony in Ramallah became a rally for Jerusalem”

“Great masses marked Palestinian Martyrs' (Shahids') Day – with official participation and participation by the factions – in a central ceremony that was organized by the National Association of the Families of the Martyrs [of Palestine] at the Ramallah culture hall…
[PA] Minister of Justice Ali Abu Diyak noted in a speech on behalf of [PA] Prime Minister [Rami Hamdallah] that the marking of this great day falls at a time when the Palestinian cause is in a fateful and historic period, in which our people and its leadership are dealing with [US President Donald] Trump’s tyrannical declaration that attempts to steal from Jerusalem its Arabness and Palestinian national identity, and to declare it Israel’s capital.
Abu Diyak directed a blessing of appreciation and esteem to the Martyrs who have sacrificed themselves for Palestine from the British Mandate period, on to the Martyrs of the Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” the Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel) and aggression of 1967 (i.e., the Six Day War) from among the members of the Palestinian people and the precious nation, and ending with the Martyrs of the battles of Lebanon, the two Intifadas, the assassinations, and the ongoing acts of aggression against our people in the Gaza Strip…
Abu Diyak conveyed the blessings of [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas] and the prime minister to the families and relatives of the Martyrs who paved the path to freedom and independence with their blood and sacrifice, and sacrificed their souls for Palestine. He also said that these Martyrs are the conscience of the people, the pioneers of the freedom struggle, and the defenders of the national path

Headline: “Al-Wahidi: The occupation authorities are committing a forbidden act by holding the bodies of the Palestinian and Arab Martyrs”

“Fatah Movement Representative in the [Palestinian] National and Islamic Forces’ Prisoner Committee Nashat Al-Wahidi condemned the fact that the Israeli occupation is holding the bodies of the Palestinian and Arab Martyrs (Shahids) in the numbered cemeteries (i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and enemy soldiers) that desecrate the dignity of the dead…
Al-Wahidi noted that the occupation state already conducted a DNA test on July 30, 2017, under the supervision of the International Committee of the Red Cross, on the body of heroic Martyr Anwar Muhammad Attiyah Sukkar (i.e., suicide bomber, involved in double bombing in which 22 Israelis were murdered), who was born in the Shuja’iya neighborhood [of Gaza] on Dec. 10, 1972, and carried out a heroic self-sacrificing operation (i.e., suicide bombing) at Beit Lid with his brother and comrade Martyr Salah Abd Al-Hamid Shaker on Sunday morning, Jan. 22, 1995. This operation led to the deaths of over 20 Israeli soldiers and the wounding of dozens. The occupation state has also conducted DNA tests on the body of female Martyr Hanadi Jaradat (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 21) from Jenin, who carried out a heroic self-sacrificing operation on Oct. 4, 2003, at a restaurant in Haifa, which led to the deaths of 19 Israelis (sic., 21).”

The Cemeteries for Enemy Casualties are two burial sites maintained by the Israeli army for burying the bodies of enemy soldiers as well as terrorists. They are fenced and well-marked. Graves have markers instead of gravestones. Burial is temporary, on the assumption that the bodies will eventually be returned to their countries of origin. No ceremony is held. The bodies are buried in numbered caskets after their identities are documented.

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said the fact that the occupation approved the Palestinian prisoner execution law in a first reading (sic., see note below), along with the previous criminal laws that the Israeli Parliament has legislated in the last two years against the prisoners, establishes the Israeli barbarity that gives off a criminal, terrorist, and racist smell…
Karake said that ‘legislating laws of this type is meant to continue to reject the legitimacy of the struggle and the legal legitimacy of the prisoners as prisoners of freedom and legitimate fighters who fought and sacrificed for their land and its independence. These prisoners, according to international law and UN resolutions, are prisoners of a national liberation movement and legal fighters, and not criminal prisoners and criminals as Israel claims.’”

The Israeli Parliament voted in favor of a bill facilitating the death penalty for terrorists in a first reading on Jan. 3, 2018. The bill allows military courts to pass a death sentence with a simple majority of judges as opposed to a unanimous decision. It does not specify that it applies to Arab or Palestinian terrorists only.

Light your lantern high and repeat: The fate of the dark of night and the oppressors is to disappear
Let out cries of joy, O Martyr's mother, let out cries of joy..."

       "The participants in the workshop that the [official PA] Palestinian news and information agency WAFA and the [PA-funded] Prisoners' Club organized yesterday (Wednesday) [Dec. 27, 2017] emphasized that when dealing with the prisoners' cause there must be uniform terms that will serve the national cause and contribute to presenting the prisoners in a way that befits them…
In a working paper submitted by WAFA Agency Editor in Chief Khuloud Assaf, she emphasized that the agency has begun practical steps to develop the media terms… Assaf detailed several of the mistaken terms that are used by the Palestinian media outlets, such as calling the Palestinians of the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) ‘Israeli Arabs,’ and also 'collective punishments' instead of 'violations'… In addition, the term 'the Palestinian demands' is used, while the correct term is 'rights'…
Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council member Kifah Harb talked about the significance of using the political and national terms and expressions so that there will be a common language that expresses the ideology of the Palestinian national movement and reflecting the suffering of our people, far from the terms that the occupation is attempting to insert into our media and drag us to using, without us understanding the danger they constitute to our national enterprise."

Abu Iyad lives and is not dead, his soul is with us, we will not forget him
Abu Jihad lives and is not dead, an idea never dies…
Fatah is my organization, O mother of the self-sacrificing fighters...
To Marwan Barghouti, the Shabiba sends its greatest greetings
Do not think that we have forgotten the blood that was spilled
O Jaffa, Dalal [Mughrabi] liberated your land."

Headline: “The Prisoners’ Club has launched a campaign to correct the widespread historical and statistical mistakes regarding the prisoners”
     “The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club has launched a campaign to gradually correct the historical, informative, and statistical mistakes that have clung in recent years to the media and cultural discourse regarding the documentation and investigation of the phenomenon of the Palestinian and Arab prisoners… As part of this campaign, the Prisoners’ Club has emphasized that the prisoners are not held in ‘prisons,’ but rather in ‘detention camps’ or ‘temporary security installations’ (sic., terrorists jailed in Israel are held in prisons). From this the first difference can be seen between a ‘prison’ – which is a place intended for the imprisonment of people who have committed a crime – and a ‘detention center’ – which is a place intended for the imprisonment of prisoners of war or in order to steal the freedom of political detainees. From the dawn of its existence, ‘prison’ has been intended for criminals, and it is not logical to attribute it to fighters who have fought for the freedom of their homeland. This is the second difference between considering the place where prisoners of war or political detainees are held a ‘detention camp’ or [considering it] a ‘prison,’ as this is a place meant for imprisoning criminals in the eyes of civilian law.”

The Voice of Palestine, the official PA radio station, program On the Table, on foreign donor states cutting funding for the Women’s Affairs Technical Committee (WATC) after it named a center in the village of Burqa, north of Ramallah, after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi – who led the murder of 37, 12 of them children, which was exposed by PMW:

Official PA radio host: “The funders are placing conditions on our receipt of the funding, and accusing us of incitement and terror due to the naming of the women’s center after Martyr (Shahida) Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children)… Why does Martyr Dalal Mughrabi’s name arouse the anger of the funding bodies with which you have been partners side by side in a number of plans and projects over several years?" [...]

Women’s Affairs Technical Committee board of directors Head Samia Bamia: “The naming was by the residents of [the village of] Burqa, the women of Burqa. The staff [of the committee] had no role [in it], and had no right to tell the residents which name to choose… Despite the fact that we are working in the field of women’s rights, they came to settle accounts with us over our thoughts about our nationality and its defense. I think that we need to be more alert. What is happening now and in stages – although now it is intensifying – is an attempt to brand our national consciousness. An attempt [to make] me not only accept an agenda that is connected to development, but also make me accept the occupier’s narrative, which these [funding] states are adopting… I think that the stage is more dangerous now, because they are not only taking the land and the future from you by force, but

According to the Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) legend, the souls of the Palestinians remain alive, and the Israelis are concerned about their existence and return, and that is what causes them to freeze their bodies or leave them at the mercies of predatory animals in the numbered cemeteries… The Israeli Supreme Court and prosecution are still delaying in releasing the six Martyrs who are in the Israeli [morgue] refrigerators due to the concern over the Martyrs’ awakening from their popular funerals, and over the intifada of the freely spilled blood, and also due to the fear of the symbolism and great esteem for the Palestinian Martyr who resisted the occupation, and also [fear] of the legitimacy of this resistance in response to Israel’s attempts to turn everyone who resisted the occupation into a criminal, whether he is a Martyr or a prisoner.”

Karake revealed that there are currently 6,000 prisoners in the occupation’s prisons, including prisoners who have served 35 years, such as Karim Younes (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 with accomplice) and Nael Barghouti (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1 with accomplice), 19 who have served over a quarter century, and nine who have served over 20 years [and under 25 years] of imprisonment. He expressed his pride in these prisoners ‘who have sacrificed the years of their lives for the homeland’s freedom and dignity.’”

Against the [British] High Commissioner and his people.’”

Abbas: Removal of security measures at Temple mount following Palestinian riots was a victory, “we adhere to peaceful popular resistance (i.e., includes terror attacks)” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 16, 2017
      “[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas emphasized that the Fatah Movement is the leader of the national project and the struggle, and will remain so until achieving our people’s hope for freedom, independence, and the establishment of its independent state whose capital is Jerusalem.
These statements were made during a reception he held yesterday [Aug. 15, 2017]... The president noted that the occupation tried to exploit the situation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) that took place at the Al-Aqsa Mosque on July 14, 2017 to place [metal detector] gates and surveillance cameras at the gates of the Al-Aqsa Mosque (see note below –Ed.). However, the [Arab] residents of Jerusalem – women, men, children, and elderly – stood as one and told the occupation: ‘We will not agree to any change in the status quo at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.’ The [PA] leadership stood with them, supported their demands, and emphasized that the demands of the residents of Jerusalem are the demands of the entire Palestinian people, and the [metal detector] gates and cameras were removed, and Jerusalem and its mighty people won…
The president also said: ‘We adhere to peaceful popular resistance (‎i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror‎), because we know what the occupation wants, and we adhere to our policies in coordination with our people in Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and all places where the members of our people are found.’”

     “Israeli occupation forces raided several homes of prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids) in various neighborhoods of occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday evening [Aug. 15, 2017]…
The occupation police’s statement noted that among the houses that were destroyed was the home of Martyr Tareq Abu Arfa (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 2) (sic., Abu Arfa’s house was raided but not destroyed) – in the Ras Al-Amud neighborhood of the village of Silwan (i.e., neighborhood of Jerusalem), south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque – who took part in the kidnapping operation of Israeli soldier Nahshon Waxman in 1994. [The house was destroyed based] on the claim that the Hamas Movement is paying money to Martyr Abu Arfa’s mother.”

On Aug. 14, 2017, the Israeli Security Agency announced that a Hamas funding apparatus that was transferring money to terrorists’ families in Jerusalem had been busted, and the money had been seized in raids on the homes of the families, including that of the mother of terrorist Tareq Abu Arfa.

Tareq Abu Arfa – Hamas terrorist who participated in the kidnapping on Oct. 9, 1994, and the murder six days later, of Israeli soldier Nahson Waxman, during the Israeli army’s attempt to rescue him.

     “The Arab League condemned the ongoing Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people, and particularly the holding of the Martyrs’ (Shahids’) bodies and theft of their organs, the legislation of additional racist laws, and the proposal of 120 racist laws against the prisoners.
In a report that was published yesterday [Aug. 14, 2017] by the Arab League’s Department of Palestine and Occupied Arab Territories, it was said that ‘The occupation’s authorities are still continuing to hold the bodies of the Martyrs in the numbered cemeteries (i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and enemy soldiers)... The report added that Israel is not just stopping at Martyrs, but is also carrying out medical experiments on the prisoners within the prisons. What is more, it has even intentionally killed prisoners, whether through medical negligence or [after] abducting them to secret prisons.”

At a ceremony held at the PA’s headquarters in Ramallah for the conclusion of the summer camps of 2017, organized by the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reiterated that the Palestinians will continue their “struggle” until Jerusalem, Israel's capital, is on Palestinian hands:

Abbas: “The children of Palestine are the hope, the future, the independence, and the state, and in them we see Jerusalem, the capital of our independent state… [Palestinians are] continuing in our national struggle until one of our boys and girls will wave the flag of the State of Palestine above the walls of Jerusalem.’”

Abbas also praised Palestinians for their violent “uprising” against Israel’s security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the summer (2017) following a terror attack on the Temple Mount in which two Israeli border policemen were murdered. “We are with you and we support your resolve, and this is the reason that we say that the willpower of the peoples works wonders, and this is what happened at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
