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.”

Girl on Gaza university educational TV: Israelis are afraid but Palestinians aren’t because “they [Israelis] love life”
Source: Al-Kitab TV (educational channel affiliated with the Islamic University of Gaza), Oct. 16, 2015
Al-Kitab TV host: “Dear viewers, we must talk about the high number of Martyrs (Shahids) in Palestine compared to the number of dead Israelis. This is an indication of the violence and tyranny of the Israeli occupation. It’s true that the occupation kills many of us and they become Martyrs, but the number of dead on their side is low. This demonstrates the violence and tyranny of the occupation. Many of them [Palestinians] were executed in cold blood, and the occupation claimed that they had stabbed a soldier or a settler. It has become a sort of a game. Every time the settlers see a Palestinian walking by, they throw a knife next to him and claim he was trying to carry out a stabbing attack…
Eternal glory for the devoted Martyrs. We salute their families and wish them [the ability] to carry their burden with patience. We praise the young heroes who sacrificed their souls for Jerusalem and carried out these wonderful heroic acts. We kiss their hands because they are true heroes. We say to all the Mujahideen (i.e., Jihad fighters) of Palestine: ‘Mujahideen, keep your shoes, because the day will come when all the museums of the world will ask them of you.’”
Girl: “The Israelis fight with missiles and tanks, while we fight with rocks. [But] we are not afraid. They are more afraid than us, because they love life.”

     “For five days the occupation army did not cease persecuting the Abu Laila family, even after the last battle in which their son Omar [Abu Laila] (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) was victorious in his death as a Martyr on the night of March 19 [2019]...
Amin Abu Laila, the Martyr’s father... said: ‘All that we have is a sacrifice for the pure soul of Omar and Palestine. The Palestinians have never attributed importance to a home or its stones. Omar was loved by the family, and today he is loved by the Palestinian people, the Arab world, and everyone who believes in the justice of our cause and who strengthens our hands.’ …
Ghadir, the Martyr’s mother, said: …‘I honor every visitor who comes after the destruction of the home, and the occupation will not prevent me from welcoming the visitors and those blessing over my son’s death as a Martyr, and from sitting with them on the threshold of the home.’”
