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.

Palestinian news agency publishes letter terrorist stabber left for his parents: "Allah willing I will be a Martyr" 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Jan. 14, 2016
Headline: “The last will of Martyr Muayyad Jabarin to his family”
      “A last will has been found at the home of Martyr Muayyad Jabarin, who died as a Martyr this morning [Jan. 14, 2016], which was intended for his parents and seemed to be written in his own handwriting, in which he asks his father and mother to forgive him, and expresses sorrow for the pain he has caused them, and asks Allah to bestow patience upon them. The Martyr wrote in his will: ‘O Lord, forgive me, mother, He is God, forgive me, father. I will kill two Israelisoldiers and have my revenge through them. Do not be upset O mother; your son is a Martyr who has made Palestine proud.’ He added in his will: ‘I hope you will forgive me, and Allah willing I will be a Martyr. I am deeply sorry for what I have put you through, and Allah willing, He will bestow patience upon you.’ He ended his will: ‘The chains are destined to be broken and the night is destined to end.’"

Muayyad Jabarin – a 20-year-old Palestinian terrorist from Sa’ir, near Hebron, who tried to stab Israeli soldiers at the Beit Anoun Junction on Jan. 14, 2016. He was shot and killed by the soldiers.
Terrorist stabber’s father interviewed on PA TV reports on son’s death wish, praises Allah for his son’s Martyrdom

Official PA TV news broadcast report on funeral of “Martyr” Ahmad Kawazbeh
Terrorist stabber Ahmad Kawazbeh’s father: “Ahmad was an excellent high school student. Two days before he died as a Martyr (Shahid), he said something to us that we did not understand. We said to him ‘You need to study so you will bring us a high [grade point] average, and we want a report card (Shahada - the same as the word for martyrdom) which will make us proud.’ He said ‘Father, I will bring you Shahada (Martyrdom) that will make you very proud.’ It never occurred to us that he meant this type of Shahada (i.e., Martyrdom and not report card). Praise Allah, this is a better Shahada than any report card, Shahada for Allah.”
Immediately after the father’s words, the PA TV host says that the “Martyr” wanted to fulfill his dream of excelling in the matriculation exams, however “the muzzle of the occupier’s rifle was greater than his dream.” She ignores the words of the father who moments before specifically noted his son’s death-wish.

Ahmad, Muhannad, and Alaa Kawazbeh – 3 Palestinian terrorists, 18 and 19-years-old, and relatives, who attempted to carry out a stabbing attack near the Gush Etzion junction on Jan. 7, 2016. They aroused suspicions of Israeli soldiers at the junction who began a security check of them. The Kawazbeh relatives pulled out knives and were shot and killed by the soldiers.

Their end is near..."
Sister of terrorist stabber Muhammad Shamasneh: "I'm happy that my brother is a Martyr... You think that we, the Palestinian people, will sit silently? By Allah, we will trample your heads, Israel. You think that my brother’s blood will not be avenged? By Allah, I will not sit silently. I will die as a Martyr. All of my sisters will die as Martyrs... My brother died as a Martyr. The Zionists killed him. My brother is a hero. Israel, beware of thinking that my brother is a coward and a terrorist. My brother is a hero..."

PA daily: Terrorist killer "felt rage" over Israel's "attacks against those carrying out Ribat" and he "hoped to die a Martyr" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 13, 2016
Headline: “Martyr Ahmad Zakarneh – lover of Jerusalem”
     “Indeed, the news of Ahmad’s death as a Martyr arrived. At the same moment the mother’s heart was relieved and she said: ‘Praise Allah.’ Everyone in the village rushed to the home of the Martyr’s family, and did not know whether to console [the family] over his death as a Martyr or express pride in his death in an operation of this type…
Ahmad was a young person who loved everyone, and everyone loved him. For a long time he had felt rage over the occupation’s attacks against those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war to protect land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. He loved Jerusalem and hoped to die there as a Martyr, and he got what he wanted, according to his mother.”

The terrorists, who attacked the policewomen after they were asked for identification, were carrying machine guns, knives, and pipe bombs, leading the police to suspect they were planning a mass attack against civilians. The terrorists were shot and killed at the scene by Israeli police.

Bara Issa: “In the name of All Merciful Allah. Allah said: Do not think of those who died for Allah as dead, but rather as living, but you cannot see it. In my name and the name of the Palestinian people, I, a son of Jerusalem, Bara Issa, Id. 40630297 dedicate myself to protecting the Al-Aqsa Mosque and defending our occupied land out of a pure intention and for the sake of Allah, and as an unequivocal response to our noble women who are screaming: ‘Islam, save us!’ and with all my mental and physical strength. I dedicate myself out of my own free will to carry out this operation (i.e., stabbing attack), with no outside direction or pressure from anyone. My brothers the youth! Martyrdom (Shahada) is the highest level, and I urge you to follow the path of freedom and Martyrdom. Your brother in God, Bara Issa of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the military branch of the Fatah movement. May peace, and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you.”

Bara Issa – Palestinian terrorist who stabbed an Israeli man near the Rami Levy supermarket chain in Sha’ar Binyamin, north of Jerusalem, on Nov. 6, 2015. On the day of the attack (probably before its execution), he posted a video taking credit for it. On Nov. 7, PA authorities claimed that Issa had turned himself in to their security forces.

3- Parents celebrate children's death
View All

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

Palestinian author condemns mothers’ of Shahids celebrating their children’s death

Official PA TV program Culture Talks, hosting the author Khader Mehjez
Author Khader Mehjez: "Once I wrote a post that caused a commotion with everyone. Everyone was against me. I wrote: One of the ugliest sights I have seen is the picture of a woman whose son has died as a Martyr (Shahid) and she is crying out in joy. You can imagine how many people of the Palestinian public came out against me. The campaign [against me] continued for a few days, and then after a while I discovered that people were convinced by the explanations I gave. (They were convinced that he was right, that a woman rejoicing over son’s death is an “ugly sight” –Ed.) Many of those who condemned me [were convinced], and I think that in the end I won."
