and the cold-blooded murder of a Palestinian "spy,"
to the cheers of the Palestinian audience

At a Palestinian Authority event under the auspices of Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, with the participation of the Minister of Culture, the Palestinian Authority portrayed murder as a positive act.
The event ended with PA Minister of Culture Anwar Abu Aisha honoring a number of released terrorist murderers by inviting them on stage and awarding them PA plaques of honor. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the PA uses cultural events to honor terrorists.
During the program, a play was performed by Palestinian youth. The actors in the play are divided into two rival camps of Hamas and Fatah supporters. They end up throwing away their Fatah and Hamas flags, uniting under the PA flag. They then shoot and kill all the "Israelis." Among the dead bodies of the Israelis, they find a Palestinian who had been spying for Israel.
The "spy" begs for his life. However, the Palestinian leader makes him kneel down and shoots him in the head.
In response to the staged murder, the audience erupts in applause and whistles. The united Fatah and Hamas group salute their leader - the murderer - who marches around with the Palestinian flag.

The plaques of honor given to the released terrorist murderers showed a map of "Palestine," denying the existence of Israel.
At a Fatah event in 2009, a skit also portrayed the rivalry between Fatah and Hamas. Students belonging to the two organizations argued over which organization was greater and which had done the most to fight Israel. Hamas students boasted the kidnapping of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, while Fatah students boasted the lynch in Ramallah in 2000 in which two Israeli soldiers were brutally murdered.
The following is the transcript of the play that was broadcast on PA TV Live:
Girl: "[Fatah and Hamas], unify your ranks. Palestine is calling you. Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is calling you. Haifa, Acre, Jaffa, Lod, Tiberias, Ramle and Safed (all are cities in Israel) all of Palestine is calling you from the river to the deep sea (i.e., all of Israel)..."
Boy: "Do you remember this guy that you saw here? He's a traitor, a damn spy. In life, it's either victory or Martyrdom death for Allah..."
[Palestinians shoot Israelis and capture the spy. The spy begs for his life. The spy is murdered and audience applauds.]
