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:
Male graduate: "In the name of the Shahids (Martyrs), in the name of the prisoners, in the name of the stone and the rifle."
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."
...
Male graduate: "Fatah is [still] with the rifle. And our rifles are not rusty even if they have fired thousands of bullets." [Al-Filistiniya (Fatah), July 28, 2009] Click here to view

Fatah ceremony in Tulkarem marking the anniversary of the Sabra and Shatila massacre.
A boy,  Abd Al-Rahman Mustafa, recites poem:
"Pick up your rifle, resist and terrify [them].
Break your silence, free your thoughts...
Stand firm, strengthen your heart.
Destroy, shock, burn and set fire...
Heal your wounds and forget your cares...
Your homeland is your honor; protect it with your blood...
Find your weapon next to my weapon...
Al-Aqsa [Mosque] calls: ‘Where are my men?’
Palestinian, answer its call; Yasser [Arafat’s] men will not kneel."

Note: Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during the first Lebanon War, Muslim residents of the camps were massacred by Christian Phalangists. The PA has a longstanding policy of falsely accusing Israel of committing the massacre or actively helping to carry it out.
Girl on Hamas TV to Jews: “May Allah blind their eyes”

Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas) broadcast a young girl singing a song:
Young girl:
“Remove your shoes when you are in Gaza. It contains thousands of Martyrs’ (Shahids’) graves, and basil plants grow in its soil...
Remove your shoes, for here the women perfume themselves with the scent of the Martyrs and adorn themselves with the blood of the smiling Martyrs.
Remove your shoes, when you enter [Gaza], for power and greatness are in it, more than in the palaces of the leaders who do nothing to help" [...]
Al-Aqsa TV host: “And what do you say to the Jews?”
Young girl: “May Allah take them and blind their eyes, Allah willing.”

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 on Facebook: "We started with stones… and we will finish with a state"

This picture posted to Fatah's official Facebook page, demonstrates that the movement still favors violence as the way to obtain statehood. A stone, a knife, a Molotov cocktail, a gun, a hand grenade, an assault rifle and an RPG illustrate Fatah's progress in terms of more and more sophisticated weapons.

Attempted murder is Palestinian “pride,” according to PA daily 
Source: Al-Asima, bi-weekly distributed with official PA daily, Jan. 5, 2015
Op-ed by Faiz Abu Shamala, Hamas-affiliated columnist for the official PA daily:
Headline: Have you watched the stabbing video of the two soldiers in Jerusalem?
     “Over the last two days, a video documenting Palestinian courage and heroism in the face of the enemies has spread [in the media]... Every Palestinian has the right to feel proud of what is seen in the video of the stabbing of the two soldiers in Jerusalem. The Arab has the right to hold his head high and to assert with confidence: There are people among our nation such as this young man, who armed himself with a kitchen knife and attacked Israeli soldiers face to face - [soldiers] wearing bulletproof vests and carrying weapons, equipment, and technologically [advanced] means of protection and communication... Zionist propaganda has failed to distort the image of the Palestinian youth, who demonstrate their excellent confrontation skills using new, creative means, transmitted to us through the video. [Such] an assault with a knife on two Zionist soldiers can only be described as a battle, and a battle is nothing less than an event that involves an existential struggle whose purpose was to destroy the existence of the enemy... Now, every Palestinian raises his hand holding a knife together with this young Palestinian, and stabs the Zionists. The video exemplifies the Palestinian hero fighting a battle on the ground, not on paper or behind luxurious desks."
