Suicide terror & Shahada
Shahada (Death for Allah) promotion
Suicide terror & Shahada
People who see life as the supreme value have difficulty understanding the mind of the suicide terrorist. Why were so many Palestinians willing and eager to kill themselves in terror attacks against Israel?

In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA took advantage of the ancient tradition in Islam, Shahada or Death for Allah, which mandates Muslims to aspire to die in combat for Islam. The PA told their people that this ancient tradition also applies to them in confrontation with Israel today.

This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005) and continues today. The PA promotes Shahada as a mandatory religious Islamic duty, both for adults and children, promising great rewards.
Shahada (Death for Allah) promotion
Since 2000, the promotion of Shahada has been carried out by the Palestinian Authority through all the structures under its control, including media, school system, religion, culture, music and sports. Religious leaders have taught adults that Islam demands they seek death, while music videos have taught children that Shahada death “is sweet.” Shahada promotion still continues today.

In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA presents Shahada - Death for Allah - as a religious Islamic obligation. This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005).
Palestinians are told that Allah desires all of them – men, women and children – to seek death as martyrs, and that it is a privilege to be worthy of dying for Allah. One cleric even warned that if they didn’t seek Death for Allah their Muslim faith was deficient:
Ahmed Abdel Razek, PA Cleric:
“The believer was created to know his Lord - to follow Islam… to be a Shahid (Martyr) or intend to be one. If the believer doesn't hope for Shahada (Death for Allah), he will die a Jahiliya death (without faith). We must aim for Shahada and request it from Allah. If we truthfully ask for it, [Allah] will grant us its rewards, even if we die in bed.”

PA TV song: "Take my blood and give me freedom: my country from the [Jordan] water to the [Mediterranean] water" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 11, 2014


Song on PA TV, sung by winner of Arab Idol song contest, Muhammad Assaf:
     "We possess the right [to Palestine], and we are her men
And when the right is realized, we will redeem her soil
Take my blood and give me freedom: my country from the [Jordan] water to the [Mediterranean] water
O Gaza, sacrifice your men liberally; each of them is worth two
Lift your head high; that is your weapon...
No matter how severe the oppression is, we will protect our land
It's either victory or Martyrdom, her men said
Soil of the forgotten land, watered with precious blood
My land, sing your song, gather your strength for freedom."

Tareq Al-Suwaidan, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Kuwait: "Without a doubt, the blood being spilled [in Gaza] is dear. But the equation is: 'Those killed from our side are in Paradise, and those killed from their side in Hell.' (Hadith)
We are not afraid of Martyrdom. Not long ago, you cried out loud: 'Death for Allah is our most exalted wish!' (Muslim Brotherhood slogan) You received the death you wanted. We have no problem with death. We are not like the children of Israel: 'And you will surely find them the most greedy of people for life.' (Quran) Whereas we yearn for death and Martyrdom... Every mother - especially the mothers in Palestine, but every mother in the [Islamic] Nation, not just Palestine - must nurse her children on hatred of the sons of Zion. We hate them and they are our enemies. We will plant this in their [our children’s] souls, so that a new generation will grow among us, which will erase them from the face of the earth."

Kids on Hamas TV: "We want to die as Martyrs" 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), May 8, 2014

Hamas TV reporter:
For most of these children, resistance has become a dream... When you speak to them, you’re surprised by the strength and eloquence of their words.
Boy 1: We love the resistance. We want to die as Martyrs. Long live the Martyrs...
Boy 2: The Israeli occupation understands only resistance. We always love the resistance, to liberate our nation Palestine. And among us, the Martyrs are loved. Applause for the Martyrs...
Reporter: The atmosphere in the refugee camp is full of the spirit of resistance and of those who inscribed its stories of heroism. Most of the walls show you the images of the Martyrs...
Boy 3: The resistance, the armed resistance is what brings results in the Jenin refugee camp... The Jenin refugee camp continues to educate its children to resist, and passes on the flag to them, from generation to generation. They yearn for one of the two best outcomes – the return to their occupied lands, or Martyrdom.

Fatah "welcomes" synagogue terror attack and "escorts the Martyrs (i.e., ‎terrorists)... to Paradise"‎ 
Source: Dagbladet.no (Norway), Nov. 18, 2014
On Nov. 18, 2014, two Arab terrorists, Ghassan and Uday Abu Jamal from East Jerusalem, ‎entered a synagogue in Jerusalem and attacked worshippers with guns, knives and axes, killing 4 ‎worshippers and a police officer. The terrorists were killed in an exchange of fire with Israeli ‎Security Forces that arrived on the scene. ‎
Speaking in the name of MPs from Abbas' Fatah movement, spokesman Jamal Tirawi glorifed the ‎attack and the terrorists who carried it out:‎

     ‎"Fatah's parliamentary faction welcomed the Jerusalem operation (i.e., the Jerusalem synagogue ‎terror attack), which was carried out by two residents from Jabal Mukkaber, and caused the deaths ‎of four settlers. These statements were made by Fatah faction spokesman and member of PA ‎Parliament (Legislative Council) Jamal Tirawi, who emphasized that the faction welcomed the ‎Martyrdom-seeking (Istish'had) operation in Jerusalem, and was escorting the Martyrs (Shahids) of ‎the Abu Jamal family to Paradise.‎
Fatah's parliamentary faction emphasized that this operation was carried out as part of the ‎Palestinian response to the occupation's massacres and incitement, its invasions of the Al-Aqsa ‎Mosque and prohibition of Muslims from entering it; the settlers' rampages [carried out] under the ‎protection of a well-trained occupying army in the West Bank and Jerusalem, and to the oppression ‎and racism against our people in the occupied interior (i.e., Israel)." ‎

Abbas glorifies shooter of Rabbi Glick 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 3, 2014
On Oct. 29, 2014, Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner Mutaz Hijazi shot Rabbi Yehuda Glick at point-blank range in an attempt to assassinate him. Rabbi Glick was seriously wounded in the attack. Hijazi was killed the following day after opening fire on the Israeli policemen who came to arrest him.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ condolence letter to the family of the terrorist:

     “[PA] President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his anger and his condemnation of the abominable crime committed against Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, who was murdered last Thursday [Oct. 30, 2014] by the killing and terror gangs of the Israeli occupation army.  In a telegram delivered yesterday [Nov. 2, 2014] by Minister of Jerusalem Affairs and District Governor Adnan Husseini to the Martyr’s relatives in the village of Silwan, he [Abbas] said that Martyr Mutaz rose to Heaven while defending our people’s rights and holy places. In addition, he condemned this barbaric act, which is added to the occupation’s crimes against our people since the Nakba (i.e., ‘the catastrophe’ Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), as well as the continuation of the historic injustice being committed against it wherever it is present.”

On Oct. 29, 2014, Islamic Jihad member and released prisoner Mutaz Hijazi shot Rabbi Yehuda Glick at point-blank range in an attempt to assassinate him. Rabbi Glick was seriously wounded in the attack. Hijazi was killed the following day after opening fire on the Israeli policemen who came to arrest him.
Abbas’ advisor and Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein glorified terrorist Mutaz Hijazi on his Facebook page:

     “My message to the heroic Martyr (Shahid) Mutaz Hijazi, the Martyr of Dawn, the Martyr of Jerusalem: I have met with your father on your behalf but was not able to meet with your mother in order to kiss her hands and her forehead for feeding you courage and bravery from her breast, making you the revolutionary who has shortened our path to freedom. Mutaz, Allah has honored you with Martyrdom (Shahada), for which all men yearn. Your bullets were a beacon [illuminating] a path that had become dark, the light of which will continue to shine for years to come. Rest in peace, for you have conveyed the message, that this is the shortest way to the freedom of nations. Your life has been the essence of the Palestinian people’s long experience of suffering, for you were a revolutionary, thereafter a prisoner, and finally a Martyr (Shahid).”
