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.”

“A letter from the student who completed her studies, Tala Abdallah Barghouti from the village of Beit Rima in the Ramallah district of Palestine, to her father prisoner Abdallah Barghouti (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 67):
'Today I completed my studies, my father; if you only knew how much time I spent looking for you among those present. I saw the smiles of all the fathers, except for your smile, and I felt as if I did not see a single smile. All of the girls were flooded [with love] from their fathers, except for me, my father. Only the longings for you and the sorrow over your absence flooded me. However, I am strong and holding on thanks to you, my father, as you have defeated your jailors through your empty intestines (i.e., a hunger strike that began on April 17, 2017) and given this people dignity that is expressed by the number of years of your sentence – 67 life sentences. I promise you that I will continue to succeed, my father, and I will keep an empty place at every happy event in my life, which will be full of love and longings for you.'

“The Palestinian National Initiative movement (i.e., a Palestinian political party, not a member of the PLO) called to reject and block the Israeli-American pressures to stop paying the allowances (mukhassasat) of the families of the Palestinian prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids).
The movement said today [May 14, 2017] in a statement… that this contradicts the national values and elementary human rights, and harms the principle of honoring the sacrifice of the male and female fighters of the Palestinian people, who sacrificed their freedom or their sons’ lives for their people’s freedom, and struggled while implementing the decisions of their national movement…
The [Palestinian National] Initiative statement wondered: ‘Did the government of Israel stop paying the allowances of the families of terrorists such as Baruch Goldstein, who committed the massacre at the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron, or the allowances of the families of those who committed the crimes of burning young [Muhammad] Abu Khdeir and the Dawabsheh family (sic., allowances were not given for the act of committing a crime in any of the cases mentioned -Ed.) – criminals who cannot even be compared to the Palestinian freedom fighters?’”

However, how can the heart of a mother of 10 sons and two daughters - one of whom, Abd Al-Mun’im, died as a Martyr, and four of whom are sentenced to life sentences – bear all of this? However, something in this equation is different as we are talking about a Palestinian mother first of all. Um Nasser [Abu Hmeid], seven of whose sons have been in prison, has gone from prison to prison, from city to city, while pictures of them chase her in her dreams and on the walls, after all of them were arrested in 2002. O Allah, give her patience...
I read that they call Latifa by names such as The Oak Tree of Palestine, Khansa of Palestine, and so forth. All these names seem to me to be insufficient, and to diminish her value, for what would we lose if we change the language and call the oak tree, Khansa, and Palestine itself by Latifa’s name?”
