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.”

Excerpt of a statement summarizing a session of the Fatah Revolutionary Council.

       “The prisoners, Martyrs (Shahids), and wounded have sacrificed that which is most precious to them for the homeland, and Fatah will remain loyal to their sacrifice. It will continue to fulfill its duty and obligations to them and to their families, despite the blackmail, pressures, and theft (refers to Israeli law to deduct terrorist salaries from the tax money Israel collects for the PA; see note below –Ed.), as severe as they may be. As [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas has emphasized more than once, this is a red line. The council condemns the occupation’s targeting of the prisoners, its break-ins [to the prisoners’ wings], and its recurring attacks against the brave prisoners. It condemns the occupying power’s policy of medical neglect in the strongest language, and prays for the 214 Martyr prisoners since 1967, the last of whom was Martyr Fares Baroud (i.e., terrorist, murdered 1). The council salutes all of the prisoners...”

Op-ed in PA daily glorifies terrorist who murdered 10 as "national Palestinian rebel who targeted armed occupying soldiers and settlers" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 27, 2019
Excerpt of op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily

      "Between [former Chief Rabbi of Israel] Mordechai Eliyahu's student who killed Palestinian woman Aisha Al-Rabi with a large rock that struck her in the head (referring to 16-year-old Israeli who's been indicted but denies the charges; see note below –Ed.), and Palestinian freedom fighter Thaer Hammad (i.e., terrorist, murdered 10) who ordered an Israeli woman to move away from the scene of the operation so that she would not be harmed (PMW was unable to find record of this; there were 3 civilians among Hammad’s victims –Ed.), there is an enormous difference – like the difference between slavery and freedom. This is because he is a national Palestinian rebel who targeted armed occupying soldiers and settlers, [and] whose human morals, national education, and religious spiritual culture prevented him from killing an Israeli Jewish woman and her child, and he diverted them from passing there."

This is how Fatah has operated since its Launch (“Intilaqa,” refers to Fatah’s first attempted terror attack against Israel; see note below –Ed.); it did not search for easy solutions.
Fatah chose to go out against the armies of [former Israeli Chief of Staff] Moshe Dayan, which had come from an easy and quick victory over the neighboring armies, and thus was the Karameh Battle (see note below –Ed.).
Fatah paid no attention to the balance of power when [former Israeli Chief of Staff Ariel] Sharon came with his armies up to the edges of Beirut, and instead of hiding in dark tunnels, Fatah and the leadership chose to build barricades and defend the nation’s honor."
