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.

Regardless of the time that passes, we will erase the memory of this [Balfour] Promise
Listen Balfour, listen

We bow only to Allah

And we are rooted in this land from the days of the Canaanites

Palestine’s history is great, Jerusalem is ours and no one else’s
Regardless of your efforts to falsify, this land is Palestinian…
O British man, listen up
You must apologize to us
This homeland is ours, and not the Zionists’
You deprived my precious homeland
You stole the right to my land and gave it to the Zionist
This is an international crime

We will not be silent from this day forward, we will not forget the cause"

PA TV reuses song from 2000 calling for terror: "Draw your sword... let it not return"

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.”

Khan Al-Ahmar is a site where Palestinian Bedouins have illegally erected dwellings and a school, mostly simple shacks, on land in Area C (i.e., land under full Israeli administration according to the Oslo Accords). The Israeli authorities have ordered the demolition of these structures and offered alternative sites for them. A number of petitions to the Israeli Supreme Court against the demolition orders have been considered and then rejected by the court. As of July 17, 2018, the illegally constructed buildings have not been demolished. During July 2018, Palestinians have held protests at the site against the demolition, some of which have turned violent.
