Violence and terror
Promoting violence & terror
Violence for adults
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.”

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake: "We reject these laws (i.e., to deduct terrorist salaries from PA tax money)... We continue to stand by the families of the prisoners (i.e., terrorists), the Martyrs (i.e., terrorists), and the wounded. This is part of the Palestinian national struggle... We reject labeling them ‘criminals’ and ‘terrorists.’ Israel wants to turn the entire struggle of the Palestinian people into ‘terrorism.’ It wants to remove the legitimacy of our struggle against the occupation."

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.”

Senior Hamas leader: Riots at Gaza border are win-win for Palestinians. If rioters cross borders, Israel is embarrassed, if Israel murders rioters, Israel is exposed to the world 
Source: Al-Aaraby TV YouTube channel (London), May 14, 2018

Former Head of the Hamas Political Bureau Khaled Mashaal:
"The members of our people in Gaza turned to creative thinking six weeks ago – the peaceful Great March of Return (i.e., violent riots on the Gazan border with Israel). This has caused great concern in Israel, as it exposes it before the world. It is in a state of confusion, pressure, and embarrassment: If it lets the [Palestinian] masses cross [the border] this causes it embarrassment, and if it murders them in cold blood – as it has actually done – this exposes it before the world. In both situations it commits a crime and our people wins."

Its participants... clarified that the Jews are an arrogant and tyrannical enemy that is occupying the land of Jerusalem and the land of Palestine, and that they have no right to arrogance, tyranny, and occupation... Allah willing, we will soon take what was taken from us, if not peacefully then by force... How long did the European Crusaders live in this country? They lived here nearly 100 years, but by Allah's will, they left it humiliated.
They left it humiliated and disgraced, dragging their tails behind them, because Allah inscribed for this [Islamic] nation eternity and victory... Allah, protect our Al-Aqsa Mosque and our Jerusalem for us, and return it to the rule and sovereignty of the Muslims. Allah, drive the Jews out of it, humiliated and disgraced , by means of those [the Muslims] who are monotheists, humble, and purified."
