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.”

PLO official: Imprisoned Palestinian terrorists are “freedom prisoners,” not terrorists or criminals  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 13, 2017
Headline: “Karake: The occupation is striving to delegitimize the prisoners’ legal rights”
       “Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs [Issa Karake] said that the arbitrary and severe Israeli steps against the prisoners – who are covered by a series of Israeli legislation and laws that violate the prisoners’ rights – are official and systematic Israeli attempts to delegitimize the prisoners’ status, their legal and humanitarian definition, and their legal struggle against the occupation for freedom and independence.
Karake called to act to strengthen the prisoners’ legal status according to the Geneva Convention, international law, international humanitarian law, and the UN resolutions, as they are freedom prisoners and legal fighters against the occupation. This is so as to act against the crazy Israeli efforts to define the prisoners' entire struggle as terror and crime, and to incite for this on the political and diplomatic level.”
Op-ed by PLO Prisoners' official: Israel keeps Palestinian “Martyrs” (i.e., killed terrorists) in freezers in fear of a “Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) legend” about their souls remaining alive  
Source: Palestine News Network (PNN, independent Palestinian news agency), Oct. 11, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake

      “Six Palestinian Martyrs (Shahids) are still being held in the State of Israel’s morgue refrigerators, and the number was higher than this, but several of them were buried in what is called the military numbered cemeteries (i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and enemy soldiers). 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.”
