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.”

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.”

Fatah official in Gaza after US recognition of Jerusalem: “All the options for defending and protecting this Palestinian, Arab, and Islamic right [to Jerusalem] are open”

Official PA TV, program Palestine This Morning, report from official PA TV studio in Gaza on the responses and protests to US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and transfer the US embassy to it, interview with Fatah Supreme Leadership Council in the Southern Districts (the Gaza Strip) member Najah Aliwa

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.”

Official PA TV, special broadcast following US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, hosting Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of NGOs Dalal Salameh

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner of NGOs Dalal Salameh:
“Certainly, there would not have been and will not be any political achievement if there is no impetus, and what is impetus basically? The Palestinian revolution, the armed struggle, your rifle, your struggle, your movement from capital to capital when you are far from your country and homeland, your people that is under the occupation in its struggle, its sacrifice, [and] in the rocks of the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993)-”
PA TV Host: “Today the legitimate non-violent struggle.”
Dalal Salameh: “In other words, all of these constant things in the different forms of struggle, certainly they are what will lead to political content in one way or another, and to the Palestinian revolution, as it has a goal. In other words, it is an idea, it strives to get rid of the occupation and establish an independent sovereign state, and for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, the achievement of these legitimate rights for the Palestinian people; it has a path – a path of struggle for our people, and on its 53rd anniversary the Fatah Movement says that it is not putting aside its options of struggle. It continues with its options of struggle... We will continue our popular resistance, our public movement, we are continuing in this direction; and the occupation, yes, it is not free, [the occupation state] must pay the price for the continuation of its occupation, and our popular struggle continues and escalates.”

Fatah youth movement threatens Israeli MP, calls Israel an “imaginary entity” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 27, 2017
       “The [PA] national unity government demanded that the relevant and authorized organizations and institutions of the international community – and prime among them the Red Cross – condemn Israeli Parliament Member Oren Hazan and settle accounts with him over his racist behavior and the crime that he committed against mothers and family members of our heroic prisoners (he verbally confronted family members of terrorists; see note below –Ed.)…
The Fatah Shabiba [Movement] in the West Bank said in a statement yesterday [Dec. 26, 2017] in response to extremist Likud Parliament Member Oren Hazan’s attack on a bus of family members of prisoners from Gaza… that the feet of the Palestinian resistance brigades, led by the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (i.e., Fatah’s military wing), will trample this racist, and that the tongue that insults our prisoners and their families will be cut off. It noted that the actions of this hated racist will have severe consequences…
The Fatah Shabiba [Movement] said in its statement that the one who thinks that crimes like these will pass without a price is deluding himself. It called on this fascist [Hazan] to remember how the soldiers of his imaginary [Zionist] entity cried under the bullets of Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10), and noted that all of the options and fronts are open in order [to protect] the honor of our prisoners.”
