Violence for kids
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."

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 youth activist: Young Palestinians began "stabbing and car-ramming operations (i.e., terror attacks) and popular uprising through rock-throwing" to eventually replace Israel with Palestinian state

Fatah-run Awdah TV program Homeland Morning, a special episode in honor of the 51st anniversary of the Fatah Launch (Intilaqa), hosting Fatah youth movement Shabiba activist Haitham Abu Radwan

Fatah Shabiba activist Haitham Abu Radwan: “Today, after decades of Zionist occupation, the young Palestinians and the current Fatah generation prove each day that the Fatah movement is the pioneer, the movement that did and still does bring about the victories, because its primary principle is the liberation of Palestine from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River. This is the principle upon which we have been educated and which was taught to us by the elder, Yasser Arafat. For this reason, the young Palestinians began the popular uprising, which still [continues] today with stabbing and car-ramming operations (i.e., terror attacks) and popular uprising through rock-throwing at every point of confrontation and conflict with the Zionist. The establishment of Fatah 51 years ago, and its anniversary today, are a single message: That its goal is the liberation of Palestine and a Palestinian state from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River with Jerusalem as its capital.”

While blessing the Fatah movement on the 51st anniversary of its Launch, Abu Tharifa emphasized that 2016 has to be the year of the uprising and the popular intifada and a year of national unity and an end to the disgusting rift [between Fatah and Hamas]... DFLP political bureau member Abu Tharifa emphasized that the popular intifada is a historic opportunity to translate last March’s [Fatah] Central Committee decisions [into action], and the popular uprising is the Palestinian people’s cry that it will no longer bear and accept the reality of settlement, siege, and occupation. Likewise, he called to redesign the relations with the occupation state by ceasing security cooperation with it, cancelling the Paris Agreement, which is destructive to the Palestinian economy, and releasing [itself] from the unjust Oslo [Accords’] restrictions..."

The term "so what" is a reference to a hashtag appearing on Palestinian social media as a slogan used to encourage Palestinians to continue rioting, throwing rocks and using violence against Israelis. "#so_what" is a Palestinian response that makes light of Israel's alleged crimes, showing that Palestinians don't care. It also implies that no matter what Israel does, the Palestinians will continue not to care, and they will continue to riot, throw rocks, carry out stabbing attacks etc. The words refer to a video that went viral, showing an elderly Palestinian man arguing with Israeli soldiers. A soldier points to rioting Palestinians, saying: "They're throwing rocks at us." The old man replies: "So what, let them throw rocks."
