Violence and terror
Promoting violence & terror
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."

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

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."

PA daily: Gazan children shout intifada slogans and poems, listen to intifada songs, love the "Martyrs" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 1, 2015
     "The children of Gaza are determined to take part, along with their young compatriots, in the mass insurgency, in order to help the Al-Aqsa Mosque and occupied Jerusalem in their own way. Some recite revolutionary poems, some recite farewell verses for the Martyrs (Shahids), and others shout revolutionary slogans, which remind their listeners of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., the second Intifada, PA terror campaign 2000-2005), 15 years ago... The mass insurgency... was not accidental, but rather a natural result of a series of cumulative political [incidents] and Israeli escalation measures, which led the Palestinian people to a point where it cannot bear them anymore nor remain silent about them. As a result, the stabbing operations (i.e., attacks against Israelis) carried out by the heroes of the West Bank and occupied Jerusalem have begun terrorizing the settler herds and causing them to stay inside their homes and in their hallucinations, the occupation army soldiers have begun killing anyone who passes by them - adults and young people, boys and girls - thinking they might stab them. 11-year-old Mariam Hammad... said: 'I love the songs, I love to sing them. My siblings also sing them at home, and we always see mom and dad turn on the TV when these songs are on. We also see Martyrs killed by the Jews. I always hear the song 'On the borders,' and long to fight the occupying Jews when I grow up." (PMW editorial note: The "On the borders" music video shows masked Hamas fighters with weapons, rockets being fired at Israel, and scenes from rocket attacks against Israel)

“Youth throwing rocks at ‎occupation soldiers
during conflicts in El-‎Bireh”‎

     ‎“The incessant rain and difficult weather ‎have not extinguished the fire of rage in ‎the Palestinian chest, and conflicts with ‎the occupation forces broke out anew in ‎the Al-Shuhada Square (i.e., Square of ‎the Martyrs) in north El-Bireh, and ‎continued on and off until nightfall. ‎Demonstrators found cover from the rain ‎and wetness under umbrellas and in the ‎burning checkpoints, based on a clear ‎decision to keep the northern entrance to ‎El-Bireh, which has become a main center ‎of popular action, within the framework of ‎the insurgency for the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]…‎
The national and Islamic forces and the ‎popular activists in the district called for a ‎march, as part of the events of a new day ‎of rage for the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the ‎prisoners and as a mark of protest against ‎the occupation’s crimes against our ‎people and its holy sites.‎
The march, led by the leaders and ‎representatives of the forces and the ‎popular activists, began at the ‎international committee of the Red Cross’ ‎building in El-Bireh, not far from the ‎northern entrance, after the weekly ‎Saturday strike for Jerusalem, which the ‎Supreme Council for Monitoring Prisoners ‎and Released Prisoners regularly ‎organizes.”‎
