Palestinian boy:
     "By Allah, oh my father, I love you more than my own soul, but that is trivial because of my religion, my cause and my Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. Father, my eyes will shed no tears, but my finger will pull the trigger - this trigger that I still remember. I will never forget, beloved father, the times when you taught me the love of Jihad. You taught me the love of arms, so that I would be a knight, Allah willing. I will follow in your steps and fight the enemies on the battlefield. Every drop of blood that dripped from your pure body is worth dozens of bullets directed towards the enemies' chest. Tomorrow I will grow up, tomorrow I will avenge, and the battlefields will know who is the son of the Martyr, the commander, Ashraf Mushtaha. Finally, father, we are not saying goodbye, rather, I'll see you as a Shahid (Martyr) in Paradise. [I am] your son, who longs to meet you, the young knight, Naim, son of Ashraf Mushtaha."

Schoolbook: "Your enemies seek life while you seek death" 
Source: Reading and Texts Part II, Grade 8, Jan. 1, 2009
PA schoolbook written by Fatah educators teaches 13 and 14 year-olds to prefer death in battle over life, while it is the enemies who cherish life:
     “O heroes, Allah has promised you victory ... Do not talk yourselves into flight…Your enemies seek life while you seek death. They seek spoils to fill their empty stomachs while you seek a Garden [Paradise] as wide as are the heavens and the earth. Do not be anxious to meet them [enemies], for death is not bitter in the mouth of the believers. These drops of blood that gush from your bodies will be transformed tomorrow into blazing red meteors that will fall down upon the heads of your enemies."

A Palestinian journalist has expressed despair about the society of death worship in Gaza. In so doing, he has corroborated PMW findings documenting the death culture promoted in Palestinian Authority education.
Ghassan Zaqtan, PA journalist:
     “We knew that they would do it, especially in Gaza, where a mother brushes her young son's hair at 7:00, so that he will be killed at 7:30, and where the children learn that death is preferable to life! We knew that they would do this, it was clear to us: with language overflowing with the rhetoric of death and the norms of killing, in the religious rulings [Fatwas] and in Friday and holiday sermons.”
