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.”

Fatah posted the above photo on Facebook showing masked Fatah members stepping on the Israeli flag during a ceremony. A poem printed on the photo demonizes Israel and promotes Martyrdom-death for "Palestine" as the means to attain "Paradise" and its "pleasures": 

"In Palestine is Jerusalem!
In Jerusalem - a demonstration!
In the demonstration - a young man!
In the young man - a heart!
In the heart - a bullet!
In the bullet - death!
In death - Martyrdom (Istish'had)
In Martyrdom - Paradise!
In Paradise - pleasures!
And Allah willing, we will return [to Palestine]!

Fatah member commemorates two suicide bombers who killed 10 Israelis as "heroes" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 14, 2015
Headline: “The anniversary of [the death of] the Martyrs Mas’oud and Salem’s Martyrdom death coincides with Dalal Mughrabi’s anniversary”
“Nashat Al-Wahidi, spokesman for the Fatah Prisoners and Ex-prisoners’ Commissariat and coordinator of the National Campaign to Return the Bodies of the Martyrs (Shahids) and the Missing of the Gaza Strip… said that the month of March carried the scent of Martyrs and the smell of the occupied homeland. The 11th anniversary of the Martyrdom-death of heroes Nabil Mas’oud and Mahmoud Salem from the north of the Gaza Strip, who carried out the joint (Fatah and Hamas) Ashdod operation (i.e., suicide bombing attack) in 2004, falls on Saturday, March 14, soon after the [anniversary of the] Martyrdom-death of the Palestinian self-sacrificing female fighter (Fida'ia) Dalal Mughrabi on March 11, 1978, and the International Women’s Day celebrations.
Al-Wahidi noted that Martyr Nabil Mas’oud who belonged to Fatah, was born on May 31, 1987, resided in the Jabaliya refugee camp and was originally from the village of Deir Suneid, and Martyr Mahmoud Salem, who belonged to Hamas, was born on December 31, 1986, resided in Beit Lahiya and was originally from the village of Harbiya, united the Palestinian blood and dialects in a quality self-sacrificing (Fida'i) operation (i.e., suicide bombing attack) in Ashdod Port on March 14, 2004, which terrified the occupation, broke the rules of the checkpoints (i.e., succeeded in passing through the checkpoints) and the Israeli sense of safety on land, in the air and at sea.”

Note: Suicide terrorists Nabil Mas'oud from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing) and Mahmoud Salem from the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas' military wing), carried out a double suicide attack at the Ashdod port on March 14, 2004, killing 10 people and wounding 13.
Fatah promotes Martyrdom-death: "Martyrs of Palestine… are watering our roots with their blood" 
Source: Facebook, Fatah - The Main Page, Feb. 22, 2015

In a post on Facebook, Abbas' Fatah movement reiterated its admiration and support for those who become "Martyrs," presenting this as a good deed for the future of Palestinians:
"Good morning to the people of Palestine, the people of defiance;
Good morning, land of the free men;
Good morning, Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine, who are watering our roots with their blood, so that they will grow into a fruitful tree, strong of trunk;
Good morning, wounds of the innocent;
Good morning, children of Palestine,
who carry their innocence in one hand and the stone in the other;
Good morning, resolute mothers of Palestine,
who give away what they hold most dear (i.e., their children)."

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.
