Violence and terror
Glorifying terrorists and terror
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.

Glorifying terrorists and terror
Palestinian society’s habitual glorification of terrorists as heroes and role models is one of its most effective means of promoting terror. In honoring the worst killers, the PA is simultaneously giving approval to murder and enticing future terrorists with assurances of glory and honor if they succeed in killing. Terror and murder become the Palestinian’s ticket to fame, honor and glory.

The terrorists honored most highly amongst Palestinian society are those who have killed the greatest number. Abd Al-Baset Udeh, killer of 30 at the Passover Seder massacre, had a soccer tournament for 14-year-olds named for him. His brother was honored with distributing the trophies. Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist bus hijacker (led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children) has had summer camps, schools, graduation ceremonies and sporting events named for her, as well as many TV documentaries honoring her. Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009]. Thaer Hammad, who as a lone gunman murdered 10 Israelis in 2002, was glorified by the official PA daily as “the hero of the Intifada."

This adulation of the worst terrorists and praise for their heroism reflects the policy of the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. This video shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas,
issuing “greetings of honour and esteem” to mass murderers, whom he publicly names, one by one:
“I send greetings of honour and esteem to all prisoners...
Said 'Ataba (serving life sentence for murder in terror attack)…
Marwan Barghouti (serving 5 life sentences for planning murderous terror attacks)
Ahmad Sa'adat (serving 30 years in prison for heading the terrorist organization PFLP; honored on PA TV for planning the assassination of Israeli Minister Ze'evi in 2001, but never tried)
Aziz Dweik (Hamas leader, chairman of Palestinian parliament)
Jamal Huweil (life sentence for planning terror attacks)
Jamal Tirawi (life sentence for café suicide terror attack).
Greetings to you from our people.”

The [PLO] Executive Committee sent a blessing of appreciation and pride to the freedom prisoners of war for their legendary stance, and emphasized that their release is at the top of its agenda.”

At a ceremony held at the PA’s headquarters in Ramallah for the conclusion of the summer camps of 2017, organized by the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reiterated that the Palestinians will continue their “struggle” until Jerusalem, Israel's capital, is on Palestinian hands:

Abbas: “The children of Palestine are the hope, the future, the independence, and the state, and in them we see Jerusalem, the capital of our independent state… [Palestinians are] continuing in our national struggle until one of our boys and girls will wave the flag of the State of Palestine above the walls of Jerusalem.’”

Abbas also praised Palestinians for their violent “uprising” against Israel’s security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the summer (2017) following a terror attack on the Temple Mount in which two Israeli border policemen were murdered. “We are with you and we support your resolve, and this is the reason that we say that the willpower of the peoples works wonders, and this is what happened at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

It should be noted that the American Senate committee on Thursday [Aug. 3, 2017] approved a bill, according to which financial aid of $300 million that the US provides to the PA each year will be stopped, unless it [the PA] stops paying sums of money ‘as a reward for crimes of violence,’ as the legislators described it. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations voted by a majority of 17 in favor as opposed to four against on the bill that is known as the Taylor Force Act. This was after a Palestinian (i.e., terrorist Bashar Masalha) killed 29-year-old American [Taylor Force] by stabbing, when the latter visited Israel last year… The occupation police killed the attacker who stabbed Force, but his family (i.e., the killer’s) receives a monthly sum.”

Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 5, 2017
Official PA TV, live broadcast of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ speech given before visiting Palestinian leaders from Jerusalem at the PA’s headquarters

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “Blessings to the soul of brother fighter Faisal Al-Husseini ( i.e., senior Fatah and PLO terror leader in the 1970s), blessings to the great Martyr (Shahid), Al-Qastal Martyr (i.e., a village that served as a military base for Arab armies in Israel’s 1948 War of Independence and was captured by Israel) Abd Al-Qader Al-Husseini (i.e., Arab commander in the 1948 war). A loyal blessing to the soul of Grand Mufti of Palestine and G uardian of its Arabness [Haj] Muhammad Amin Al-Husseini (i.e., a collaborator of Adolf Hitler). This man whose virtues we cannot forget, and whose struggle and history we cannot forget. He who spent his life defending Palestine and was called ‘the Grand Mufti of Palestine and Guardian of its Arabness’ – we won’t forget these people.”

Haj Amin Al-Husseini - Grand Mufti of Jerusalem at the time of the British mandate, and spiritual and a political leader of the local Arab population. He strongly opposed Zionism and was behind riots and attacks on Jews. During World War II he actively collaborated with Nazi Germany, meeting Adolf Hitler personally and recruiting Muslims for the Nazi army.
Palestinian psychologist: Female terrorist hijackers and murderers carried out “wonderful acts of heroism”  
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 4, 2017

 
Psychologist Jultan Hijazi: "After 1967, the role of women evolved from an institutional stage to a stage of struggle and self-sacrifice. We saw many examples of this, such as Laila Khaled (i.e., participated in 2 plane hijackings), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., led murder of 37), and Fatima Barnawi (i.e., placed bomb in cinema) who was the first female Palestinian prisoner. These women, through their operations, recorded wonderful acts of heroism that the generations still see as an example... The women also had a role in the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2015 (i.e., terror wave, 2015-2016), and we saw how women attacked the Israeli soldiers at checkpoints in stabbing operations... I want to mention the mother of Martyr Muhammad Farahat (i.e., murdered 5), a Martyr from Gaza. In 2002, I think, she led him to the gate of the Israeli settlement where he carried out a military operation and killed several soldiers (sic., murdered 5 students)... As a mother, I am incapable of doing what she did, but she constitutes an example for the struggle, and she succeeded in strengthening the national values... Women carry out a large role in the children's psychological preparation."

The Israeli institute for monitoring Palestinian media, which is known as [Palestinian] Media Watch (i.e., PMW), said that PA TV, its hosts, and its guests described the one who carried out the Halamish operation as merciful and humane due to the fact that he did not kill the children in the house he broke into two weeks ago, where he killed a soldier and his parents (sic., the terrorist murdered a grandfather and two of his adult children, not any soldiers) but did not kill the children."
