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

"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 TV (Hamas) broadcast the Friday ‎sermon from the Al ‎-Shafi‘i mosque in ‎Khan Younis, delivered by Sheikh ‎Muhammad Salah Abu Rajab.‎
Sheikh Muhammad Salah Abu Rajab: “My ‎two-year-old son’s toy, his favorite toy at ‎home – like many other [children] – his ‎favorite toy is a teddy bear. Before the war ‎he used to hold it in his lap. Play with the ‎teddy bear. But today, the bear has ‎become [something else]. My son says ‎every day: ‘Where’s the soldier?’ He ‎carries it on his back, and in his other ‎hand [carries] a toy rifle, and he walks ‎around the house and wants to hide the ‎soldier. Can you [Israel] face them [these ‎children]? You can’t face them. We are ‎training an army against you, which you ‎cannot face.”‎
Hamas TV: Every Muslim mother "must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion"

Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait: "Without a doubt, the blood being spilled [in Gaza] is dear. But the equation is: 'Those killed from our side are in Paradise, and those killed from their side in Hell.' (Hadith)
We are not afraid of Martyrdom. Not long ago, you cried out loud: 'Death for Allah is our most exalted wish!' (Muslim Brotherhood slogan) You received the death you wanted. We have no problem with death. We are not like the children of Israel: 'And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life.' (Quran) Whereas we yearn for death and Martyrdom... Every mother - especially the mothers in Palestine, but every mother in the [Islamic] Nation, not just Palestine - must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion. We hate them and they are our enemies. We will plant this in their [our children’s] souls, so that a new generation will grow among us, which will erase them from the face of the earth."

Fatah calls on students to destroy Israelis' property, including power, water and telephone lines 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, July 23, 2014

     "Summary of the statement of Fatah's Shabiba [student] movement in the West Bank:
1. To Fatah Shabiba members in all areas: More resistance and escalation [is required] against the occupation everywhere. Let's turn the land into hell for the enemy and announce it so clearly that it splits the sky: Resist, boycott, move forward, rise up - for the land is forbidden for the enemy, and all Shabiba members are potential Martyrs (Shahids) for our beloved Palestine.
2. To the masses of our proud Palestinian people: More national unity [is required], because unity is the condition for victory. Let each one of us fight in his own field, for each of us has a function, and every [form of] resistance has a role in liberation. Boycott, confront, declare revolution! This is our land. We will either live on it in dignity, or be gathered into the bosom of its beloved earth as Martyrs...
Start by yourself, come to the aid of your people [by]
- Destroying settlers' property
- Blocking settlement roads: stones, nails, tinder, tires
- Destroying settlement power, water and telephone lines
- Breaking the occupation's security cameras and attacking military observation posts
- Destroying the [separation] wall and cutting the barbed wire fences
- Israeli products are bullets with which it [Israel] kills your people
- Chase the settlers on your land at places of contact"

Q: “[As of now, Israel’s Operation ‎Protective Edge has claimed] over 120 ‎Martyrs (Shahids) and wounded 900, and ‎at the official level, Fatah is still adhering ‎to the negotiations. Is that really the ‎movement’s position?”‎
Fatah Central Committee member Abbas ‎Zaki: “First of all, what is happening in ‎Gaza is a very large operation. The enemy ‎has crossed all boundaries of human ‎‎[behavior], and I don’t believe Fatah is ‎relying on negotiations with this ‎savage…”‎
Q: “What is Fatah’s official position on the ‎Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s military ‎wing), who are launching rockets at the ‎Israeli settlements? There are figures ‎according to which Fatah in Gaza has ‎launched over 200 rockets.”‎
Abbas Zaki: “Our eyes are now turned ‎toward Gaza, and the unity of the factions ‎is very necessary... No one in Gaza will ‎look on from the sidelines and sit by idly. ‎Gaza is at war and is living under fire, and ‎whoever disavows‎ the resistance is no ‎member of Fatah‎...
We Palestinians have an international ‎decision regarding our right to defend ‎ourselves, even by means of armed ‎struggle, but we won’t use the [armed] ‎struggle unless it suits the situation and ‎helps and exacts a high price from the ‎enemy during the campaign. ‎
We don’t want to say we are against it.
‎Yasser Arafat went to the UN and told ‎them, ‘an olive branch in one hand and a ‎rifle in the other.’ He didn’t say ‘just a rifle;’ ‎but also the green branch... Mahmoud Abbas is ‎experienced. We don’t want words, we ‎want deeds."

All my Arabness calls me to vengeance and liberation...

To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist's soul

And strengthen my word that goes on: Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian."

     “Fatah’s Shabiba [youth] movement in the West Bank published a press release in response to the declarations made by the extreme right-wing Prime Minister of the occupation, Benjamin Netanyahu, demanding that President Mahmoud Abbas [publicly] declare his recognition of Israel as a Jewish state at Birzeit University…
Fatah’s Shabiba said that any solution failing to realize the aspirations of our people – a free and independent homeland without the occupation and its herds of settlers; the right of return for refugees according to the decisions of the international institutions and [UN] resolution 194; freedom for our prisoners and the right of our people to full sovereignty over its land and natural resources –would be completely unacceptable. It [Fatah’s Shabiba] called on the international community to take concrete and effective steps to strengthen and implement the decisions regarding the boycott of the occupation and the imposition of sanctions on it. In addition, it emphasized that [our people] should draw inspiration from the experience of South Africa in this area…
Fatah’s Shabiba concluded its message by underscoring its intention to continue the popular resistance in all arenas and its preparedness for all options. It [the movement] called the third generation of Palestinians, after the generation of the grandfathers and fathers, the generation of adherence to principles and resistance.”

Schoolgirls sing slogan about massacre of Jews 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Mar. 6, 2014
Official PA TV program In a Fighter’s Home showed images of a procession of schoolgirls on their way to Mutaz Washaha’s mourning tent. The girls are shown chanting loudly, “[Remember] Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!”
During the program, Washaha was repeatedly referred to as a “hero.”

Note: Mutaz Washaha was a member of the military wing of the National Front for the Liberation of Palestine. He was released after serving time in an Israeli prison for carrying out shooting attacks. He was killed on Feb. 27, 2014 by an Israel security force that had been sent to arrest him on suspicions of terrorist activity. After Washaha had barricaded himself in a building and refused to give himself up, the forces fired a missile at the building, stormed it, and found Washaha’s body.
Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were killed in the battle, which marked the end of the Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see this event as a precursor to future wars against Jews. At extremist gatherings and rallies, this slogan is often chanted as a threat to Jews, implying that they should expect to be defeated and massacred again by Muslims.

He is a true reminder for us of [all] the Martyrs and he reminds us of this long path of sacrifice, of the self-sacrificing fighters.
Each day we teach our children what sacrifice for Palestine is. This is the Palestinian people; this is this people’s culture – we always welcome [Martyrs] and part [from them.] We say to the whole world that a nation that lives on the Martyrs and generously sacrifices Martyrs will not lose its direction. It will always be free and proud. It will protect its holy sites and protect its land, every inch of it. It will not abandon , Allah willing. We will always follow the Martyrs’ path.”

It’s our right, the [right of the] Palestinian people under occupation, to resist in all forms and ways. Perhaps, non-peaceful popular resistance is suitable for this stage.
