PA teachers were "the main agitators for the Intifada" -
They must be honored, says PA TV
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
During a program on PA TV that discussed Palestinian education, the PA TV host made the following statement explaining why Palestinian teachers deserve honor:
PA TV host: "The teachers were the main agitators for the Intifada, for [Palestinian] nationalism and for awareness [of Palestinian identity]. Therefore it is our duty to honor them more."
[PA TV (Fatah), Dec. 21, 2010]
From the context it seems that he was referring to the first Intifada, Palestinian violence which started in 1987.
