PA's worship of Martyrs' blood 
and promotion of Martyrdom continue
 
- now on game show
"A thousand blessings to the souls of our heroic Martyrs
who water the land of Palestine with their blood every day"
- PA TV game show host

In a game show to entertain Palestinians during Ramadan, the Palestinian Authority TV host glorified the Palestinian ideal of Martyrdom-death. Welcoming viewers to The Box, the host opened at least twice with praise for the "heroic Martyrs," emphasizing that they "water the land of Palestine with their blood":



Official PA TV host: "A thousand blessings always to the souls of our heroic Martyrs who water the land of Palestine with their blood every day, until the independent State of Palestine whose capital is Jerusalem arises. Whoever doesn't like it - let them bang their head against the iron of the Damascus Gate."
[Official PA TV, The Box, May 28, 2018]



Official PA TV host: "A thousand blessings in honor of our heroic Martyrs who sacrificed their bodies and souls so that we will build a homeland worthy of this Martyrdom. All love, appreciation, and solidarity to their families behind them."
[Official PA TV, The Box, June 5, 2018]
 
This is yet another example of the PA culture focusing and honoring Shahada - Death for Allah. It should be noted that the game show had nothing to do with Martyrdom and yet the PA TV host chose to open the show this way. Palestinian Media Watch has exposed the ongoing promotion and glorification of Shahada by the PA and its leaders. For example, a few days after US President Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital and announced he would move the US embassy to Jerusalem (Dec. 6, 2017), PA TV broadcast a music video in which Palestinians are asking Allah to grant them Martyrdom in Jerusalem:
 
 

Lyrics: "Al-Aqsa has called, and its call is precious
For its sake, life is insignificant, even if it's precious...
God, grant us Martyrdom there
God, promise us, we beg of you...
A million grooms and brides at the celebration
Have written the marriage contract in blood on the veil"
 
Visual: Suicide bomber Wafa Idris - She blew herself up in Jerusalem, killing 1 and wounding over 100

Lyrics: "A million grooms and brides at the celebration
Have written the marriage contract in blood on the veil"

Visual: Suicide bomber Ayyat Al-Akhras - She blew herself up in Jerusalem, killing 2 and wounding 28

Lyrics: "Filled with desire, they are going to the Paradise of immortals
To a wedding procession with angels that fill Palestine with light."
[Fatah-run Awdah TV, Jan. 23-24, 2017; official PA TV, Dec. 11 and 17, 2017]
 
In 2015, PA Chairman Abbas himself stated that the PA "blessed every drop of blood spilled for Jerusalem," and promised that "every Martyr will reach Paradise." This statement together with the claim that Jerusalem was in need of protection from the Jews and "their filthy feet" was later seen as marking the onset of the wave of terror attacks that started in September 2015: 


 
"We bless every drop of blood that has been spilled for Jerusalem, which is clean and pure blood, blood spilled for Allah, Allah willing. Every Martyr (Shahid) will reach Paradise, and everyone wounded will be rewarded by Allah. The Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is ours, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is ours, and they have no right to defile them with their filthy feet. We will not allow them to, and we will do everything in our power to protect Jerusalem."
[Official PA TV, Sept. 16, 2015]
 
PMW has documented the cult-like worship by Palestinians of "the blood of Martyrs."
