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.

Boy vows to join father in Martyrs` Paradise 
Source: Hamas website, Feb. 1, 2009
Palestinian boy:
     "By Allah, oh my father, I love you more than my own soul, but that is trivial because of my religion, my cause and my Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. Father, my eyes will shed no tears, but my finger will pull the trigger - this trigger that I still remember. I will never forget, beloved father, the times when you taught me the love of Jihad. You taught me the love of arms, so that I would be a knight, Allah willing. I will follow in your steps and fight the enemies on the battlefield. Every drop of blood that dripped from your pure body is worth dozens of bullets directed towards the enemies' chest. Tomorrow I will grow up, tomorrow I will avenge, and the battlefields will know who is the son of the Martyr, the commander, Ashraf Mushtaha. Finally, father, we are not saying goodbye, rather, I'll see you as a Shahid (Martyr) in Paradise. [I am] your son, who longs to meet you, the young knight, Naim, son of Ashraf Mushtaha."

PA TV newsreader: “Masses from the Ramallah and El-Bireh district escorted the body of Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Asi from the Palestinian Medical Compound in Ramallah to his place of birth in Beit Lakia in the western part of the district. Occupation forces assassinated Asi yesterday [Oct. 22, 2013] when it attacked the cave he was in…”

PA TV reporter: “The Martyr’s body was carried on the shoulders of his relatives, friends and fellow villagers before being buried in the ground. And he was escorted as a Martyr to the bride who loved him and whose land he loved, she is Palestine.”
PA TV reporter: “Martyr Muhammad Asi is a summary of our people’s story and catastrophes, and he rebelled and revolted against the oppressor. He was chased and fled to the mountains to oppose the occupation. His choice and promise were: ‘Freedom with dignity or Martyrdom death under the earth.’”

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
PA embassy official praises Palestinian mothers of Jihadists at ceremony in UNESCO Palace 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 20, 2014
     “The Fatah movement, the movement’s institutions and Lebanese and Palestinian civil institutions in Lebanon organized a Palestinian-Lebanese heritage exhibit yesterday [March 19, 2014] to celebrate Mothers’ Day at the UNESCO Palace in Beirut…
Advisor for Cultural [Affairs] at the Palestinian Embassy in Lebanon Maher Meshaiel, who represented PA Ambassador [to Lebanon] Ashraf Dabbour at the exhibit opening, said: ‘The Palestinian mother has qualities that set her apart from [other mothers] in the world, for she is the soldier, the fighter and the one who resists, and the hope protecting Palestine’s olive trees. She who was uprooted from her land has turned the nights of despair in the diaspora and exile into days of flowing hope. She has pulled out her gun, parted from her son with a smile and received him as a Martyr (Shahid) with ululations, in order to prevent the enemy from feeling the intoxication of his victory.’
For his part, Mustafa Hamdan, President of the Leadership Council of the Independent Nasserite Movement, or Al-Murabitoun (i.e., a Lebanese political party,) saluted Palestinian mothers and expressed his appreciation of them, calling the Palestinian mother the mother of all the sons of the Arab homeland, and the one who had, since and before 1948, and up to this very day, whenever a commander, fighter or Jihadist was killed, borne 100 children in his place, to become Martyrs for the homeland.”

Lebanese official on PA TV: "The true mother is the land that gave birth to the Martyrs" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Mar. 20, 2014
Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning interviewed the director of the social institutions in Beirut, Lebanon, Muhammad Dabdoub, who spoke about Mother’s Day.
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “The month of March is the month of sacrifice and loyalty. [The anniversary of] the death of sister Dalal Mughrabi as a Martyr (Shahida) is in the month of March; [the [anniversary of] the Battle of Karameh is in [March]; Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day are in [March].”
PA TV host: “And [the month] ends with Land Day.”
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “And it ends with Land Day. For us, the true mother is the land that gave birth to the Martyrs (Shahids) and gave a great deal. No matter how much we give [the land], we will never [entirely] fulfill our duty to it.”

Note: Dalal Mughrabi - led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.
The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
Land Day –an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976, to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider it a national day.
