Suicide terror & Shahada
Success of Shahada 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.
Success of Shahada promotion
The Palestinian Authority's Shahada indoctrination has been very successful. Many parents celebrate the death of their children, and some even describe how they prayed for their children’s death as Martyrs. Even 11-year-olds talk about death lovingly, as if it’s the most they can achieve in life.

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.

Hamas TV: Dead Gaza civilians are privileged to have died as Martyrs 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 20, 2014

 
Hamas TV host: "Every soul has its time. These people - their time had come, and they were Martyred (i.e., Gaza civilians killed in war). They have gained [Paradise]. They have nothing in this world, especially in the Gaza Strip. There's no life in the Gaza Strip. What life can we have in the Gaza Strip? Being with Allah is better. Being with Allah is better. What we see is very hard but we won't surrender, Allah willing. The first to say it are the Martyrs' family. The first to say it are the Martyrs' mothers and fathers... Don't be disturbed by these images. He who was killed this way doesn't feel. By Allah, he does not feel. These are not my words, but the words of our beloved Prophet [Muhammad]: He who is Martyred doesn't feel. Only we suffer by these images. By Allah, [the Martyr] doesn't feel. His soul has ascended to Allah. His soul is with the Lord. His soul is inside a green bird. He is with Allah now. He is in Paradise. Only we suffer by these images... In other cities, in other countries, thousands die in earthquakes, floods, plane crashes, in ferry or shipwrecks, in natural or unnatural disasters. Thousands die. Thousands die but we don't know what their fate is with Allah. But we [in Gaza] are Martyrs. The enemy has killed us and we are Martyrs."

3- Parents celebrate children's death
View All
Chronologically


Creating a supportive social environment for terrorists has been a critical factor in the Palestinian Authority's successful promotion of suicide terrorism. To this end, PA policy has been to honor terrorists as Shahids (Martyrs for Allah), and to teach Palestinian mothers to celebrate when their children die as terrorist Shahids. Categorizing these dead terrorists as Shahids grants them the highest honor a Muslim can achieve, and is therefore cause for a mother to celebrate, according to this PA teaching.
An example of that happiness and celebration can be seen in Um Nidal, mother of a suicide terrorist:

Um Nidal is filmed with her son, Muhammad, who is armed and ready to carry out a terror attack:
     "By Allah, today is the best day of my life. I feel that our Lord is pleased with me, because I am offering something [my son] for Him. I wish to sacrifice more [sons] for Allah's forgiveness, and for the flag [of Islam], 'There is no god but Allah', to fly over Palestine.... It's true that there's nothing more precious than children, but for the sake of Allah – what is precious becomes cheap." Click to view video on website

Fatah members tell mother of suicide bombing planner: Your sons "drew with their blood the road ‎towards freedom, independence and ‎honor‎" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 28, 2014
‎     “On the 10th anniversary of his ‎Martyrdom death (Shahada), a delegation ‎of Fatah members in Nablus visited the ‎mother of the commander and Martyr ‎‎(Shahid) Naif Abu Sharakh and Martyr ‎Ghassan Abu Sharakh, in her home in ‎the Old City of Nablus… Fatah member ‎Rashid Al-Namr told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida ‎that the purpose of the visit was to ‎emphasize the renewed commitment ‎and loyalty to the Martyrs, who drew ‎with their blood the road towards ‎freedom, independence and honor. He ‎explained that commander Abu Sharakh, ‎as well as his brother, the Martyr ‎Ghassan, was one of the distinct symbols ‎of the Palestinian revolution in the entire ‎homeland, and in the Jenin district and ‎the north specifically. He also explained ‎that the Martyr possessed the personality ‎of a leader, which filled a role in ‎assembling his many friends, despite ‎their different [political] leanings, and that ‎he used that [quality] in his confrontation ‎with the enemy.‎
On her part, the Martyr’s mother, Um Naif, ‎expressed her appreciation of the visit of ‎her ‘sons’ (i.e., the Fatah members who ‎visited her), whom she described as ‎‎‘esteemed Fatah members’ and ‎emphasized the need to continue the ‎struggle in the way her sons and all the ‎Martyrs died, in order to liberate ‎Palestine.”‎

Naif Abu Sharakh was the commander of ‎the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades (Fatah’s ‎military wing) in Nablus. He was involved ‎in many terrorist attacks against Israel, ‎including a double suicide bombing in Tel ‎Aviv on Jan. 5, 2003 in which 23 people ‎were killed and dozens were injured. ‎Sharakh was killed by the Israeli army on ‎June 26, 2004.‎ For more, click "full article."

Hamas TV reporter: "Izz Al-Din Al-Masri ascended to Paradise in a Martyrdom-seeking operation (suicide terror attack) he carried out in the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem, where he gave the Zionists a taste of humiliation after killing 19 Zionists and wounding dozens... The citizens expressed their pride in Izz Al-Din's heroism, along with the thousands who gathered to accompany him on his final journey, and they did not forget all those who played a role in this operation."...
Hamas leader Ahmad Nimr Abu Ara: "I salute Ahlam Tamimi, (planner  of the Sbarro bombing) who brought Izz Al-Din to his battlefield; I salute Qais Adwan (responsible for murder of 77); I salute Abdallah Barghouti (67 life sentences); I salute Ahmed Al-Ja'abari (Hamas leader); I salute Muhammad Deif (Hamas leader), and first and foremost, I salute prisoner Jamal Abu Al-Hija (9 life sentences)."
