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.”

PA daily op-ed glorifies founder of Islamic Jihad terror organization

Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

      “Even after the beginning of the first signs of the self-sacrificing (Fida’i) activity in the Gaza Strip in the mid-1950s – during the period of the Tripartite Aggression (i.e., the Suez Crisis) in which Israel, the main enemy of the Palestinian people, worked hand in hand with Britain and France – the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood did not take part in this. This was to such an extent that some of those who were counted among the Brotherhood carried out Palestinian activity after leaving the organization, and the Brotherhood hated them, considered them heretics, were hostile to them, and seriously slandered them. They did this to every comrade of theirs who thought to join the struggle, as they also did to the young commander full of patriotism, Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi (i.e., founder of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization), who left them after he became convinced that they were not made for this, but rather in order to constitute a burden on the Palestinian struggle in general. This was obvious in the quantity of their attacks against Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi, whom Israel assassinated afterwards as it did many other Palestinian leaders, but his memory will remain eternally in the life of Palestine.”

She connects everything to her uncle Karim, to prisoners, and to events that are connected to the cause of the Palestinians..."
Official PA TV reporter: "How can Karim Younes not be a role model and a dream for these children, and how can he not be the greatest headline of the day?"

PLO prisoners’ affairs head: "The prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 11, 2019
      "Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners' Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr said that the prisoners' will has overcome all of the occupation's steps to harm their determination and kill their aspirations through the punitive laws that it imposes on them that include all areas of their lives, and primarily the struggle against the prisoners' studies. This is by placing obstacles, confiscating books and writing implements, and banning the completion of their studies and registering at universities. Abu Bakr said this during a ceremony in which he and Vice [President] for Academic Affairs at An-Najah National University Dr. Muhammad Al-Amla presented a law degree to the relatives of prisoner Azmi Naffa (i.e., terrorist, wounded 4) from the Jenin district. Naffa – who has been imprisoned since 2015, is sentenced to 20 years, and is now in the Gilboa Prison – completed his legal studies behind bars. Abu Bakr said that there are dozens and hundreds of prisoners and released prisoners who have defeated the occupation through their studies and receiving their university degrees, and today the prisons are full of honorable cases of prisoners that are completing their bachelor’s and master’s degree studies from within their rooms and cells in the dark prisons."
