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].

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.”

Palestinian Red Crescent honors murderers of 3 Israelis, cancels celebration "out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs who ascended to Heaven" 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, Dec. 13, 2018
Headline: “Out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs: The Red Crescent cancels the celebrations of its golden jubilee”
    “The Palestinian Red Crescent announced the cancellation of the celebrations for the golden jubilee of its establishment, which were to take place today (Thursday) [Dec. 13, 2018] at 6:00 p.m. at its general headquarters in El-Bireh, and this is out of respect for the blood of the Martyrs (Shahids) who ascended to Heaven recently after being shot by the Israeli occupation (refers to terrorists Saleh Barghouti and Ashraf Na’alwa who were killed resisting arrest, and terrorist Majdi Mteir who was killed while committing a stabbing attack; see notes below –Ed.).
The organization said in a statement that [the cancellation] is due to the situation in the occupied Palestinian territories, which has been caused as a result of the Israeli operations against members of our people, the occupation forces’ recurring invasions of cities and villages in the northern districts (i.e., the West Bank), the arrest of many young Palestinians, and the threats of the settlers – who are supported by the occupation soldiers – to eliminate [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas.”

Fatah official justifies terror attack in which 2 were murdered: Terror attacks are responses to Israel’s alleged “policy of summary execution” against innocent Palestinians

Posted text: “When the occupation army soldiers do as they please on the Palestinian land and sow ruin and destruction in it, and when Israeli soldiers implement a policy of summary executions against the members of our people and execute three young Palestinians in one night, Israel must understand that the extent of the Palestinian response will be according to the extent of these attacks. Its leaders must understand that they are unable to defend even their soldiers (refers to Givat Assaf attack in which 2 Israeli soldiers were murdered –Ed.). They have attempted all of the criminal means to force our people to submit and wave a white flag, but all of their attempts have failed. Only one path remains for Israel that will ensure the wellbeing of its soldiers and settlers: full withdrawal by the occupation and its murderous settlers to the June 4, 1967 borders.

Yasser Arafat – Founder of the PLO and Fatah, former chairman of the PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.
