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.”

Abbas’ advisor denies attributed statements that were negative toward killed terrorists: "The Martyrs are more honorable than all of us, and all of us bow our heads before [their] heroic acts"

      “Supreme Shari’ah Judge of Palestine, [PA] President [Mahmoud Abbas’] advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash denied the publications of several people on social media about statements attributed to him regarding the Martyrs (Shahids) that fell in recent days in the Gaza Strip (refers to terrorists killed in an attack tunnel in Israeli territory; Reports were published on Facebook alleging that Al-Habbash condemned tunnel digging and said that those who die digging a tunnel are not Martyrs –Ed.).
Al-Habbash said in a press statement: ‘We are proud of our Martyrs and the members of our people that stand firm everywhere who have fallen because of the criminal occupation – whatever the path and location by which they have risen [to Heaven]. We consider all of them Martyrs with Glorious Allah.’ [...]
Al-Habbash emphasized that whoever published this fake and baseless news item will be prosecuted and persecuted by the people, because the Martyrs are more honorable than all of us, and all of us bow our heads before the heroic acts of the members of our people and their sacrifices in the struggle against the occupier that steals our land, our Jerusalem, and our freedom.”

Head of Palestinian NGO: Protest by donor countries over naming a youth center after a terrorist, that PMW exposed, is an attempt to make Palestinians accept “the occupier’s narrative” 
Source: The Voice of Palestine, official PA radio station, Oct. 31, 2017
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

     “Today, Thursday [Oct. 26, 2017], is the 23rd anniversary of the assassination of commander Martyr (Shahid) Fathi Shaqaqi, founder and secretary-general of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine (i.e., terrorist organization). The assassination of Martyr Shaqaqi took place on Thursday, Oct. 26, 1995, at the hands of the Israeli Mossad (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) forces and its collaborators while he was in Malta, on his way back from Libya to Damascus…
Before 1967, Martyr Fathi Shaqaqi had Nasserist tendencies ( i.e., a socialist Arab nationalist political ideology), but the defeat of 1967 (i.e., the Six Day War) deeply affected his perspective and he joined the Islamic movement in 1968. However, he disagreed with the ideas of the Muslim Brotherhood... and the Martyr and a group of his comrades established the Islamic Jihad Movement in the latter part of the 1970s...”
