Violence and terror
Promoting violence & 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].


This violent image of a dagger being thrust into the Star of David has appeared hundreds of times in a video clip for children on PA TV, from 2001 – 2008.

Promoting violence & terror
Palestinian political, religious, and social frameworks justify and promote violence and terror. On the one hand, Imams on Hamas and PA TV, political leaders and even children routinely express calls for future terror attacks against Jews and Israel. Citing the inherent evil Jewish nature, they proclaim that it is an Islamic and Palestinian duty to defend against the immediate threat and kill Jews.

On the other hand, the PA and Hamas actively glorify terrorists, particularly suicide terrorists, praising the killer and the act of killing as righteous and honorable.
At a PA cultural festival in June 2010, in the presence of the PA Minister of Culture, singers and dancers promote and glorify violence.
[PA TV (Fatah), The song was broadcast live on PA TV on June 4 and was rebroadcast June 24, July 9, July 13, July 16, July 20, Sept. 21, and Dec. 31, 2010. It was rebroadcast in 2011 on Oct. 3, 4, and 7]

The Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas have created vast educational, social and cultural networks aimed at children that promote and glorify violence and terror. Palestinian children are taught through educational videos, schoolbooks, TV mascots and cultural events, to see violence and the “armed conflict” as heroic and to see themselves as future fighters against Israel:
"I came here following the conference elections. I hope that there will be more conferences like the 6th Fatah Conference (August 2009). These conferences are important for us because it makes us aware of leadership and that we will be combatants and wage resistance (violence) against the Israelis."

At a Fatah high school graduation event, under the auspices of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, the student graduates explained what they were taught by Fatah:

Female graduate: "In the name of Fatah, the school that taught us the meaning of nationalism."
Male graduate: "In the name of Palestine: Haifa, Acre, Jaffa, and our Arab Jerusalem."
Female graduate: "In the name of Palestine: Gaza, the West Bank and the flag of national unity."

Fatah: Terrorist involved in attacks that killed Israelis who also murdered a Palestinian "collaborator" "is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine" 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, Feb. 19, 2015
     “The hero of the famous Ein Arik operation (i.e., terror attack), the heroic Martyr (Shahid) prisoner Shadi Said Al-Saaideh… Shadi is a wonderful example for the children of Palestine, its youth and heroes of Palestine. He was born from the womb of Palestinian suffering on March 8, 1981 in a diaspora refugee camp in Jordan, and returned to the Gaza Strip after the signing of the Oslo Accords… With the start of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., the PA terror campaign 2000-2005) he joined Fatah’s Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.
The famous Ein Arik operation:
On February 19, 2002, he [Al-Saaideh] drew his weapon in defense of his homeland and his nation. He went towards the Ein Arik military checkpoint, near the village of Ein Arik, west of Ramallah, together with one of his comrades in the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, and carried out a glorious operation (i.e., terror attack) which will continue to shine in the books of the resistance and the self-sacrificing operations (Fida'i).
Shadi, the hero of the famous Ein Arik operation – that extraordinary self-sacrificing operation which shocked the Israeli security establishment and rocked the occupation to its very foundations. For he shot at Israeli soldiers gathered at the Ein Arik military checkpoint, killing 8 soldiers and wounding others, before he and his friend succeeded in retreating.”

The Palestinian Authority justifies all terror as legitimate armed conflict, coining it “resistance,” the Palestinian euphemism for violence ranging from the terror to suicide bombings to stone throwing:
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and former PA senior official, Jibril Rajoub:
"Building a school and throwing a hand grenade, in my opinion, are resistance. I build the school in order to strengthen the reasons for my people's resolve, as one of several aspects of the resistance, and when there is a need to throw a grenade [or launch] a rocket, I'll do that as well out of my belief in the inevitable victory of my cause and its justness."

The PA at times adds that violence must be used wisely as an effective political tool. Depending on the political circumstances the Palestinian Authority alternates active calls for violence and terror with periods when they say that terror is being postponed because of temporary conditions:
Dr. Nabil Shaath, Fatah Foreign Affairs Commissioner:
"The popular struggle is a fundamental principle whose importance equals that of the armed struggle, since it is the responsibility and task of all the people. The current distancing from the armed struggle does not mean its absolute rejection." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 21, 2010]
Fatah leader Diab Al-Louh once worded it this way on PA TV: “The rifle seeds and diplomacy reaps.”
Fatah threatens Israel with war in video showing armed fighters training for battle

Introductory Arabic text: "A message from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military wing) to the Zionist enemy on the day of Nakba" (i.e., 'the catastrophe,' Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel)

Text in Hebrew and Arabic:
"A message to the Israeli people
The battle of liberation is inevitable and closer than you think
Our Nakba will not be forgotten,
you will soon leave, you have no other choice
because your army is weaker than a spider web,
and your society is fake and subject to the moment we return.
Our right will not be lost as long as there is a nation behind it who believes in it and adheres to it
and our rifle is stronger and more insistent than you imagine.

We are never afraid, O usurper
We are the members of the Nidal [Al-Amoudi] unit
Our determination will defeat your hate
in any battle or clash
We are the members of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades
We will live as men, we will die as men
We have prepared for you those [men] whose only desire is your destruction
We have prepared the best soldiers
In the brave Nidal unit, soldiers and defenders of the land
We have brought the 103 [rocket] squad
when facing them, it is useless to call for help
We have prepared the best soldiers."

Fatah Facebook post threatens "the world's dwarfs" with violence 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, May 13, 2015

A post on Fatah's Facebook page warned "the world's dwarfs" to "remain in their burrows" when "the storm" - the name of Fatah's military wing - "roars." This warning appeared on a photo of an armed member of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades beside the Fatah logo, which also encourages the use of arms against Israel. The Fatah logo shows two rifles crossed over a map that includes the PA areas and all of Israel:
"When the 'storm' Al-Asifa (i.e., a reference to Fatah's military wing in the 1960's and 1970's) roars and the nation applauds the eternal Fatah, the world's dwarfs should remain in their burrows."
