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

“#IMPORTANT #Instructions for participants: [...]
Rebelling young people,
Treat seriously and do not take lightly the requests to bring a knife, dagger, or handgun, if you have one, and to leave them under your clothes and not use them or show them, except if you identify one of the [Israeli] soldiers or settlers. Do not kill Israeli civilians, instead hand them over to the resistance immediately, because this is the point that Israel fears, as it knows that the capturer can set any condition he wants.”

Official PA TV filler praising Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi who physically assaulted two Israeli soldiers together with her cousin and mother, see note below; the filler features video from the incident as well as images and text

Text on screen:
“Palestinian courage knows no bounds. Ahed Tamimi, a 16-year-old young woman, stood before the soldiers. This armed soldier received slaps he will never forget, and [Tamimi] does not fear him. Despite her youth, this is not the first confrontation between them [Tamimi and her cousin] and the occupation soldiers. And regarding Ahed, winner of the 2012 Handala Courage Award, [she has] a long history of struggle. Social media stormed in solidarity with #Ahed_Tamimi. It should be noted that 339 prisoner minors [are imprisoned] in the oppressive occupation’s prisons. Our children were born for freedom!”

Palestinian activist Ahed Tamimi, 16, physically assaulted two Israeli soldiers together with her cousin and mother on Dec. 15, 2017, in Nabi Saleh north of Ramallah, in a filmed incident evidently intended to provoke the soldiers. Tamimi was later arrested along with her cousin and mother.

1. Stand stably and balance your legs, arms, and body well
2. Focus your gaze on the center of the target, and do not look at anything other than it
3. Keep the desired balance between your body and your weapon; you are the one that controls the weapon, and not the other way around

Indeed you die sleeping or awake, at home or on the mountain,
I will make you drink the cup of death, what a bitter taste..."
