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.”

Cartoon published in the official PA daily

Headline: “Our tent”

The cartoon shows Um Nasser Abu Hmeid, the mother of four terrorists serving life sentences, one pending trial who murdered an Israeli soldier, and a dead terrorist. A child with a key in its hand symbolizing the “right of return” of the Palestinian refugees is standing at the opening of her hijab (religious headscarf), which is parting open like a tent flap revealing a hollow space inside. A military construction vehicle is ramming into Abu Hmeid in an attempt to knock her down, in reference to her home being demolished on Dec. 15, 2018, because of the murder committed by her son Islam Yusuf Abu Hmeid.

Um Nasser Abu Hmeid (Um Yusuf Abu Hmeid/Latifa Abu Hmeid) – Palestinian woman who is famous and admired in the Palestinian Authority for being the mother of 4 terrorist prisoners serving multiple life sentences, another terrorist who admitted to murdering an Israeli soldier, and another terrorist son whom the PA refers to as a "Martyr." Abu Hmeid is also called Khansa of Palestine, a name that refers to the woman Al-Khansa in the earliest period of Islam who sent her four sons to battle and rejoiced when they all died as Martyrs. Abu Hmeid was honored by the PA in 2010 and in 2015, and was chosen in 2011 to launch the PA’s statehood campaign with the UN.

PA daily op-ed glorifies terrorists that killed 3 as “heroic Martyrs”, attacks Trump and demonizes Israelis 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 15, 2018
Excerpt of op-ed by Yahya Rabah, a columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

    "The significance of the spilling of Israeli blood lies in the fact that it occurred after the reverberating failure of the American proposal at the [UN] General Assembly, which wanted to mark Hamas as a terror [organization] (see note below –Ed.). This American resolution failed in a shameful manner... Therefore, we saw [US President Donald] Trump agitated and pitiful because his proposal failed, and this idiot returned to babbling about what he has already babbled about in the past, and threatened to punish the states that voted against his resolution and brought it down with great shame! By Allah, is this man suitable to be the president of the US? He does nothing but fail, and only receives slaps on the cheek!
The second criminal, [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, sent his army in great numbers and laid siege to the Ramallah and El-Bireh district! […]
Heroic Martyr (Shahid) Ashraf Na'alwa (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) and heroic Martyr Saleh Barghouti (i.e., terrorist, murdered baby and wounded 7)… are Palestinian Martyrs, who came from the Palestinian time and experienced the bitter Palestinian experience. Each one of them is a rose that grew out of a wound, and the wound is Palestinian, and they will be born one million and one times in the names of new heroes that will be born in the fields of Palestinian creativity."

Yasser Arafat – Founder of the PLO and Fatah, former chairman of the PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.

However, fate desired that when our heroine was at her home preparing a bomb to detonate on the occupation in Tal Al-Rabia (i.e., Tel Aviv) it blew up in her hands and she died as a Martyr (Shahida). In this way Shadia became the first female Martyr who ascended to her Creator in the history of the Popular Front [for the Liberation of Palestine].
Today we send all of our love to Shadia – who would repeat: ‘If I fall, take my place, my comrade in the struggle’ … She and those like her guide our path, and every time the world closes in around us, along come people like this uncompromising and merciful young woman, who sacrificed herself for her great family at the expense of the childhood dreams that were within her, in order to tell us: ‘Continue.’”

Good Morning Jerusalem

Official PA TV host: “About the Martyr from Jerusalem Abd Al-Rahman Abu Jamal (terrorist, wounded 4 -Ed.) we say:
I am the Palestinian lion cub
I was planted in my land, like the olive and fig tree
My roots reach Canaan
The blood of the Martyrs flows in my veins,
I am like a lion in the fields [of battle]
If the drums of war call,
I harvest the souls in the fields
I guard the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the [Dome of the] Rock
My eyes will not close, and my head will not bow
I am the Palestinian lion cub
The armies of treachery fear me
The Dark-Eyed [Virgins] yearn for me
I have not sold my homelands, and have not given up my assault rifle.
Today I carry my shrouds, and in my heart my faith strengthens
Because victory and liberation are coming at the hands of the lion cubs."

"The Israeli government – which tries to protect those who steal the Palestinian land and to deny the rights of the Palestinian people, which have been established by international decisions and law – is incapable of protecting anyone that steals the Palestinian land, regardless of what [military] equipment it owns, how much power it has, and how much it uses terror and murder. Today's [Oct. 7, 2018] operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) is additional proof of this.
The only solution lies in recognizing the rights of our people, by realizing the Palestinian national independence in the framework of a free and fully sovereign state, which will be established on the occupied land and on the June 4, 1967, borders, and whose capital is East Jerusalem.
Any attempt to bypass these rights will not benefit Israel and will not bring security to it and its citizens as nobody will achieve security as long as our people remains denied its rights in its homeland.

It should be noted that prisoner Awais from the Balata Refugee Camp east of Nablus, together with a group of his friends, established the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) in a direct appointment by [former PA] President Yasser Arafat…
Nasser Awais was the first to establish the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the homeland and was the secretary-general of the Brigades. The occupation forces expelled him and his name was included on the list of assassination targets until he was arrested in the Tubas district and sentenced to 14 life sentences for being behind many Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e. terror attacks).

Fatah Facebook commemorates Munich Olympics Massacre

Text and picture posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

“For the 46th anniversary of the Munich operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered): Commander Martyr Salah Khalaf, Abu Iyad (i.e. terrorist, responsible for murder of more than 13), wrote in his book Palestinian Without an Identity: ‘The motive behind the Munich operation was the refusal of the Olympic Games Committee to include Palestinian athletes in the 1972 Olympics, claiming that in reality Palestine does not exist. The goal was to draw the world’s attention to the Palestinian cause and to demand the release of 200 Arab and foreign prisoners from the Israeli prisons.’”

The Munich Olympics massacre - a terrorist attack perpetrated by the Palestinian terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, in which they murdered 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team.

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.

PA, PLO officials on Israeli prisoners’ salaries bill: “Deliberate theft… which is based on defining the resistance as a crime;” “There is no power in the world that is capable of obligating us to abandon our prisoners and our people’s heroic Martyrs”

         “The occupation parliament (Israeli Parliament) [parentheses in source] Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee  yesterday [June 11, 2018] approved a bill to deduct the money that the PA pays to the Martyrs’ (Shahids’) families and to the prisoners (i.e., from the taxes Israel collects for the PA, see note below –Ed.)…
PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi condemned the Israeli approval. She said: ‘The organized and deliberate theft of the Palestinian people’s money reflects the occupation state’s method, which is based on defining the resistance as a crime and imposing collective punishments on the Palestinian people. These steps contradict international humanitarian law, and constitute additional proof that Israel is going too far in punishing all those who refuse its occupation and resist its steps.’ …
The [PA] national unity government emphasized that there is no power in the world that is capable of obligating us to abandon our prisoners and our people’s heroic Martyrs. Official [PA] Government Spokesman Yusuf Al-Mahmoud said: ‘Our Palestinian people and its leadership are loyal like no other to our prisoners and our people’s Martyrs, who have sacrificed the years of their lives and their souls so that the members of our people would live and for their homeland’s freedom and independence.”

PA television program for Ramadan remembers terrorist murderer of 2 as a “Martyr,” refers to terrorist attacks as “operations”

Official PA TV, new program Jerusalem Ramadan for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan on various sites in Jerusalem’s Old City

Official PA TV host: “Of course there are many stores on this street, [Al-Wad Street,] and if we pay attention there is an intensive, constant, and daily presence of occupation soldiers and authorities here. If we go back to the central reason for this intensive presence of occupation soldiers and authorities, the reason is that on March 10, 2015, young Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) became a Martyr (Shahid) on this street, and several Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e., terror attacks) by young people from Jerusalem took place here.”

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

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. These attacks, which murdered a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and murder of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs, the [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club, the Hebron and Bethlehem branches of the Fatah Movement, and the Released Prisoners’ Union held a vigil of solidarity and loyalty for the most veteran prisoner of the Bethlehem district Muhammad Al-Tous ‘Abu Shadi’ (i.e., terrorist, responsible for numerous lethal attacks), who was sentenced to life and has been serving 33 years in the occupation’s prisons. The vigil was held in his home village of Jab’a, in the presence of [Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa] Karake, Bethlehem District Governor Jibril Al-Bakri, the secretaries of the Bethlehem and Hebron branches, Fatah Movement members, and the families of the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids)... The participants said that the standing by prisoner Al-Tous is a type of blessing of love, loyalty, and appreciation to the prisoners who are serving the most years of imprisonment in the world and still constitute symbols of human freedom and justice, and also to the Palestinian people’s right to self-determination, independence, a state, and complete freedom.”

[Question:] ‘“Israel” is continuing its war against the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids), and this time has announced its intention to deduct their salaries (rawatib) from the [PA] tax money (refers to a new Israeli bill; see note below –Ed.). What is your opinion on this matter?’
[Jamal Muhaisen:] ‘The Martyrs are more precious than all of us together, as they died defending the Arabness of the Palestinian land, and the prisoners are our compasses who sacrificed their freedom for the freedom of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian land. Both of them have sacrificed for our right and historical identity, and this is their right and our obligation. When we talk about how there were approximately a million Palestinian prisoners in the Zionist prisons, what this means is that the entire Palestinian people is forbidden from receiving any kind of salary. These Martyrs also died due to the crimes committed by the occupation soldiers without any reason or restrictions …

However, Andalib carried out the April 12, 2002 self-sacrificing operation, and did not wait until Sunday, April 14, in order to celebrate her 20th birthday. This was because she preferred to celebrate it in a different place and a different manner, and she hurried to extinguish the flame of her desire to take revenge against the Jews instead of extinguishing her 20th candle in her father's house… We all bow in admiration and appreciation before the soul of heroic Martyrdom (Shahada) seeker Andalib Takatka, who succeeded in standing before the occupation and taking revenge for the innocent childhood that the occupation murders day after day in occupied Palestine."

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.”

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.”

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.”

Op-ed in official PA daily defends terrorist who murdered Israeli, while insulting US Ambassadors Friedman and Haley

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Friedman the settler”

“US Ambassador [to Israel] David Friedman’s attack on the PA following the shooting operation (i.e., terror attack, 1 murdered, see note below) in which an Israeli settler was killed two days ago [Jan. 9, 2018] was unsurprising. This is because he is a partner to the Israeli colonialist Zionist viewpoint, since he himself was a settler in Jerusalem before he received his current role as a representative of the American administration (sic., Friedman has owned a home in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Talbiyeh, which is not over the 1949 Armistice line)…
I have thousands of questions to ask this American-Israeli settler. Where is he and where are human rights? Where is he and where is peace? And what peace is he talking about? Is the Palestinian victim required to remain a captive of the American and Israeli colonialist logic? When his rights are violated is he required to lower his head before the dictates of the US and Israel and ‘apologize’ or ‘condemn’ an act done by a citizen who could no longer bear the situation, and who had all of his interests and private and public life violated?
The Palestinians completely reject the logic of masters and slaves. They will continue to defend their national rights and interests every day, and will not agree to [US President Donald] Trump, Friedman, that ugly woman [US Ambassador to the UN Nikki] Haley, [US Vice President Mike] Pence, [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, [Israeli Minister of Education Naftali] Bennett, or [Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor] Liberman forcing their will on them.”
