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.”

“Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Wasel Abu Yusuf emphasized that the arrangement with the Israeli occupation has reached a dead end after the failure of the negotiations and everything concerning the peace option, and it has become clear to all that there is a crisis that requires a reexamination of this strategy that has been proven to be a failure…
He noted that what we need is to end the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, strengthen the national unity, defend the national project, revive the PLO, strive to assemble a wider front on the pan-Arab level to deal with the projects that strive against our people’s rights, and adhere to the option of resistance and intifada as means to achieve the national goals of our people for freedom, independence, and return.”

      “Fatah Movement Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of Mobilization and Organization in the Gaza Strip Ahmed Helles said that Fatah is continuing its path of struggle until the establishment of our independent state whose capital is Jerusalem.
At a rally to mark the Martyrs (Shahids) of the Khuza’a massacre in Khan Yunis, Helles added that our blood is a small price to pay for our homeland and our honor. This is particularly so because our commanders are in the field before our soldiers in order to sacrifice of themselves, and today is the day of loyalty to the Martyrs and the blood, as our blood that has been spilled for the land and homeland raises the souls of our people and our nation. He also emphasized that the path of Martyrdom (Shahada) will remain open until the liberation of the homeland, that Fatah is continuing on the path of Martyrdom, and that the most beautiful thing among us is our Martyrs. Fatah will continue to go on this path until the liberation of our national land and the establishment of our independent state whose capital is Jerusalem.”

“Fatah will bring back armed struggle” unless international peace conference is held, says Palestinian political analyst

Political analyst Hani Abu Zaid:
"This is the last chance for the president's [Abbas’] initiative, and it should be benefited from, because if the conditions change and the situation changes, the Fatah Movement will not sit idly by, but will bring back armed struggle once again. There are many voices and many calls and the Israeli public opinion needs to understand this."

Imprisoned Palestinian terrorist serving 11 life sentences for “heroic operation,” sends letter demanding return of “resistance”

Headline: “In a letter he sent from his cell in Nafha [Prison] – Prisoner Thaer Hammad: Bringing back the idea of resistance is the ideal way to protect our existence”
      “Prisoner Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10) said in a letter that he sent from his cell in Nafha Prison: ‘Bringing back the idea of resistance and unity, ending the [Fatah-Hamas] rift, and implementing the reconciliation agreement [between them] are the source of power and the protection for the Palestinian cause. They are the proper response to all the plans and plots the occupation is devising...’
Hammad demanded to resume and revive the spirit of the revolutionary movement, from which the Fatah Movement arose, and the idea of resistance, given that it is the ideal way to protect our cause and our existence in the shadow of the great challenges and dangers that surround us…
Hammad’s letter comes 16 years after the heroic operation (i.e., terror attack) that he carried out in 2002, which is known as the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation. In mentioning it, Hammad noted that his motive for carrying out the operation was his belief in the national obligation and his attempt to inculcate the continuation of the way of resistance on which the Palestinian people has gone throughout the years of its rebellion against the occupation…"

PA Mufti warns of “disasters of wars, anarchy, and instability” in region following US embassy move to Jerusalem, urges Palestinians and Muslims to “sacrifice all that is dear to them” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 26, 2018
         “[PA] Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territories, preacher at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque, [and Palestinian Supreme Fatwa Council Chairman] Sheikh Muhammad Hussein warned against the severity of the American administration’s decision on transferring its embassy to occupied Jerusalem, which was set for Nakba Day (see notes, Ed.). He said that this testifies to the insolence that those who are biased in favor of the occupation have reached, while they continue to do an injustice to our people and its holy sites and to blatantly harm the Palestinian cause in an attempt to eliminate it. The mufti emphasized that this arbitrary behavior will have severe consequences that the American administration will bear. He explained that the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem, if it is carried out, will not be an attack on the Palestinians alone, but rather a blatant attack on the Arabs and Muslims throughout the world…and that it will not serve peace and security in the region, but rather bring upon it disasters of wars, anarchy, and instability. Sheikh Hussein added that the residents of Jerusalem and all of the Palestinians, Arabs, and Muslims will not submit to this blatant attack, and will sacrifice all that is dear to them in order to confront the American stubbornness.”

PLO official “emphasized that it is necessary to escalate the intifada and the resistance in all of its forms” in response to Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital 
Source: Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency)‎, Feb. 5, 2018
Headline: “Wasel Abu Yusuf: The Palestinian people and its leadership are capable of thwarting all of the American attempts”

“Secretary-General of the Palestinian Liberation Front and PLO Executive Committee member Dr. Wasel Abu Yusuf… warned against [US President Donald Trump's] deal of the century whose goal is to eliminate the Palestinian cause through American decisions and reduce Washington’s aid to UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East). He emphasized that the Palestinian people everywhere it is located adheres to the right of return, to the fact that Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine and that it is necessary to deal with the dangers surrounding the issue – and particularly to all that concerns the American recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of the occupation entity…
Abu Yusuf emphasized that it is necessary to escalate the intifada and the resistance in all of its forms (‎i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror‎) against the occupation, until [US President Donald] Trump’s decision is brought down. He also emphasized that the people and factions will thwart the deal of the century, and that all of the plans to eliminate the Palestinian cause will receive a response.”

In early January 2018, the US froze two planned payments to UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) for more than $100 million, and the US administration spoke about the need to reexamine and conduct a reform of the UN body. This occurred after the PA refused to negotiate with Israel and cut diplomatic ties with America following US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Dec. 6, 2017.

Headline: "The president of Al-Quds Open University speaks at a conference on the latest developments in the Palestinian arena"

"President of Al-Quds Open University and [Fatah] Revolutionary Council member Prof. Younes Amr spoke at a conference organized yesterday [Jan. 29, 2018] by the [Fatah] Shabiba Student Movement and the student council at the Yatta branch of the university on the latest developments in the Palestinian arena…
He said that [US President Donald] Trump's promise (i.e., recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and promise to transfer the US embassy to it; see note below) is more dangerous to the Palestinian people than the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), by virtue of which Britain gave Palestine to the Jews, and therefore Trump and his racist administration – which is biased in favor of the occupation – must understand that the Palestinian people will resist this decision with all of its strength and will not let it pass, whatever the cost of its resistance to the decision may be. At the moment we are at the stage of popular resistance to the decision, and it is possible that it will move on to a different stage.
He explained that the Canaanite Palestinian people has been under many occupations, all of which have passed, and that [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas spoke correctly when he said: 'We are remaining here and will not leave; the occupation is the one that will leave. Trump's declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of the occupation is meaningless, and our people and its leadership will continue to defy and stand firm. The Jews have no religious connection to [Jerusalem], and their connection to it is a connection of military occupation (sic., the last sentence in this quote was said by Younes Amr, not Mahmoud Abbas).'

PA TV reuses song from 2000 calling for terror: "Draw your sword... let it not return" 
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Jan. 17, 2018
 

During the first days of the PA terror campaign (the second Intifada), PA TV repeatedly broadcast this song calling for terror:

Lyrics: “Brother, the oppressors have gone too far
Therefore Jihad is necessary and self-sacrifice is necessary.”  [PA TV, Oct. 3, 2000]

On Dec. 17, 2017, PA TV started rebroadcasting the same song calling for terror, adding an intentionally blurred and indistinct version of Trump's speech recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Lyrics:
“Brother, the oppressors have gone too far”

US President Donald Trump, Dec. 6, 2017: “Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious that Jerusalem is Israel's capital.”

Lyrics: “Therefore Jihad is necessary
and self-sacrifice is necessary...
Draw your sword from its sheath, and
let it not return to the sheath afterwards...
Brother, if my blood will flow in the soil,
and my hand will lay on its stones
Then find a free soul that has refused
to let enemies step on it
Kiss a Martyr on the land, who called on
its behalf to Allah and fell as a Martyr...
Palestine, our chests will defend you - life or death.”

Official PA TV host: “Let’s talk about the things that were organized yesterday [Dec. 9, 2017] and before then that stood out: the processions and protests against the transfer of the American embassy to Jerusalem.”
Fatah Supreme Leadership Council in the Southern Districts (the Gaza Strip) member Najah Aliwa: “First of all, I want to direct a blessing of honor to our Palestinian people that is standing firm, our people that [launched] a spontaneous uprising, without orders and instructions – this is Jerusalem. Jerusalem is a red line. Anything that touches Jerusalem touches the entire Palestinian people. It touches the heart and soul of the Palestinian people…
The Palestinian people is well aware of its rights. It knows well that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the Palestinian state, and therefore there is no concession. Jerusalem is a red line, no one can approach it. All of the options stand before the Palestinian people. All the options for defending and protecting this Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic right are open... Fatah will not veer from the wise decision of the Palestinian leadership. All of the options are open, until the American leadership or American administration takes back its irresponsible decision that was made – I think – in a moment in which clear vision was absent in the American administration.”
