Palestinian responses to terror attacks
Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].


This violent image of a dagger being thrust into the Star of David has appeared hundreds of times in a video clip for children on PA TV, from 2001 – 2008.

"The Israeli government – which tries to protect those who steal the Palestinian land and to deny the rights of the Palestinian people, which have been established by international decisions and law – is incapable of protecting anyone that steals the Palestinian land, regardless of what [military] equipment it owns, how much power it has, and how much it uses terror and murder. Today's [Oct. 7, 2018] operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) is additional proof of this.
The only solution lies in recognizing the rights of our people, by realizing the Palestinian national independence in the framework of a free and fully sovereign state, which will be established on the occupied land and on the June 4, 1967, borders, and whose capital is East Jerusalem.
Any attempt to bypass these rights will not benefit Israel and will not bring security to it and its citizens as nobody will achieve security as long as our people remains denied its rights in its homeland.

PA daily writes sympathetically about terrorist that stabbed an Israeli to death, accuses Israel of “inhumane” treatment 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Sept. 17, 2018
    “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs announced last night [Sept. 16, 2018] that the medical condition of the wounded prisoner – the boy Khalil Jabarin (16) (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1) from the city of Yatta in the Hebron district – has stabilized.
The Commission announced that the boy Jabarin is now lying in the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, and the Commission’s lawyer, Karim Ajoun, has succeeded in visiting him, and the staff that is treating [Jabarin] let [Ajoun] know that his condition is stable, and that he was wounded by a number of bullets in [different] parts of his body.
The Commission held the Israeli occupation fully responsible for the life of the boy Jabarin, particularly since he is lying in the hospital bed while his hands and legs are bound, and there is inhuman treatment by the occupation’s soldiers and policemen, who are guarding him closely.
It should be noted that the boy Jabarin was wounded by a number of bullets fired by the occupation’s soldiers (sic., by two Israeli civilians, one of whom Jabarin had just stabbed and critically wounded) next to the ‘[Gush] Etzion’ Junction, and this was after he stabbed a settler according to the Israeli occupation’s version. He was left bleeding on the ground for more than 20 minutes, and then was transferred to the hospital...”

"The March of Return" refers to massive violent riots in Gaza in which thousands of Palestinians are rioting on the border with Israel and attempting to cut through the security fence, attacking with firebombs, flaming kites, and gunfire. The riots began on March 30, 2018, and were scheduled to last for 6 weeks until Palestinian "Nakba" Day on May 15. On the day the US embassy opened in Jerusalem, May 14, 2018, the Palestinian attacks escalated and 62 Palestinians were killed. A senior official of the terror organization Hamas, Salah Bardawil, stated that 50 of the 62 belonged to Hamas, while Islamic Jihad identified 3 others as belonging to it.

Official PA daily praises arson-kite terrorism as “One of the creative means that have a more positive effect on the Palestinian cause than any military force”

Headline: “One of the creative means that have a more positive effect on the Palestinian cause than any military force – the kites are a symbol of the March of Return”

“Young people in Gaza – where peaceful processions (sic., the riots have included many attacks on Israeli forces) are being held as a sign of support for the refugees under the slogan ‘the March of Return’ – have turned kites from a children’s game into a means of resistance to the occupation that burned Israeli trees and fields adjacent to the eastern border of the besieged Gaza Strip…

Three children carried the prepared kite and approached a point dozens of meters from the border. They lit the can, and it flew to a point dozens of meters above agricultural areas on the border. Then they cut the rope, and the kite fell in a thicket next to the border, which caused a fire to break out among the trees.

Sixteen-year-old Abdallah, who stood together with several children and young people who carried several kites after checking the direction of the wind, said: ‘We are preparing them in order to convey the message that we are capable of harassing the occupation.’ He added: ‘We are not helpless. This is a new means of peaceful resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror)‎, which the occupation’s rockets will not succeed in stopping. Everywhere they fall in their territory the Israeli fields will burn.’"
