Violence and terror
Glorifying terrorists and terror
Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].

Glorifying terrorists and terror
Palestinian society’s habitual glorification of terrorists as heroes and role models is one of its most effective means of promoting terror. In honoring the worst killers, the PA is simultaneously giving approval to murder and enticing future terrorists with assurances of glory and honor if they succeed in killing. Terror and murder become the Palestinian’s ticket to fame, honor and glory.

The terrorists honored most highly amongst Palestinian society are those who have killed the greatest number. Abd Al-Baset Udeh, killer of 30 at the Passover Seder massacre, had a soccer tournament for 14-year-olds named for him. His brother was honored with distributing the trophies. Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist bus hijacker (led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children) has had summer camps, schools, graduation ceremonies and sporting events named for her, as well as many TV documentaries honoring her. Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009]. Thaer Hammad, who as a lone gunman murdered 10 Israelis in 2002, was glorified by the official PA daily as “the hero of the Intifada."

This adulation of the worst terrorists and praise for their heroism reflects the policy of the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. This video shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas,
issuing “greetings of honour and esteem” to mass murderers, whom he publicly names, one by one:
“I send greetings of honour and esteem to all prisoners...
Said 'Ataba (serving life sentence for murder in terror attack)…
Marwan Barghouti (serving 5 life sentences for planning murderous terror attacks)
Ahmad Sa'adat (serving 30 years in prison for heading the terrorist organization PFLP; honored on PA TV for planning the assassination of Israeli Minister Ze'evi in 2001, but never tried)
Aziz Dweik (Hamas leader, chairman of Palestinian parliament)
Jamal Huweil (life sentence for planning terror attacks)
Jamal Tirawi (life sentence for café suicide terror attack).
Greetings to you from our people.”

Expert on PA TV: “Fascist” Israel wants to transfer “the salaries of those who carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks)“ to aid “the victims of what he calls ‘terror’” 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Feb. 7, 2018
Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, review of Israeli press with PA TV Israeli affairs expert Fayez Abbas

PA TV Israeli Affairs Expert Fayez Abbas:
“[Israeli Minister of Defense Avigdor] Liberman’s bill, a bill that only a fascist Israeli mentality could think up: The salaries of those who carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks) – the prisoners, of course – will be transferred to a fund to aid the victims of what he calls ‘terror’ (see note below –Ed.). According to the bill, money in the amount that is paid to the prisoners, wounded, and families of the Martyrs (Shahids) will be deducted from the Palestinian tax income, and will be transferred to Israeli institutions. The amount reaches 1.2 billion shekels per year.”

On Feb. 11, 2018, the Israeli Ministerial Committee for Legislation was slated to review a bill proposed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense that would deduct the amount of money the PA pays terrorists and their families from the tax money Israel collects for the PA. The bill would enable the deducted money to be used for infrastructure benefitting all West Bank residents, compensation awarded to terror victims in lawsuits against the PA or individual terrorists, and projects aimed at eliminating terror.

Official PA daily admits 161 Palestinians did carry out stabbing attacks during 2015-2016 terror wave

Headline: “The Palestinians: 100 years of struggle on the way to liberation”

The article summarizes the different Palestinian “intifadas.” The information provided regarding the Palestinian wave of terror in 2015 supports the Israeli narrative, according to which most of the Palestinians who were killed were killed while carrying out or attempting to carry out terror attacks. This contradicts the Palestinian claims at the time that Israelis were carrying out summary executions of innocents and planting knives next to innocent Palestinian victims so that the Israelis could claim they were terrorists. –Ed.

    “The Al-Aqsa uprising in 2015 (i.e., Palestinian terror wave, 40 murdered) that broke out spontaneously against the Israeli occupation’s insistence on interfering in the affairs of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and continuing its Judaization. It continued for approximately one year, and during that year 250 [Palestinian] civilians died as Martyrs (Shahids), 161 of them while carrying out stabbing operations against the occupation’s soldiers and its settlers.”

Palestinian terror wave (2015-2016) – Palestinian violence and terror attacks against Israelis, ‎including stabbings, shootings, throwing Molotov cocktails, and car rammings. It started in September 2015 and as of July 2016, 40 people were murdered (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans, and 1 foreign worker from Eritrea) and over 500 wounded.

The occupation state has also conducted DNA tests on the body of female Martyr Hanadi Jaradat (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 21) from Jenin, who carried out a heroic self-sacrificing operation on Oct. 4, 2003, at a restaurant in Haifa, which led to the deaths of 19 Israelis (sic., 21).”

The Cemeteries for Enemy Casualties are two burial sites maintained by the Israeli army for burying the bodies of enemy soldiers as well as terrorists. They are fenced and well-marked. Graves have markers instead of gravestones. Burial is temporary, on the assumption that the bodies will eventually be returned to their countries of origin. No ceremony is held. The bodies are buried in numbered caskets after their identities are documented.
PLO Official says terrorist prisoners are “freedom prisoners and legitimate fighters,” and “prisoners of a national liberation movement and legal fighters, and not criminal prisoners” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 7, 2018
Headline: “Karake: The ‘prisoner execution’ law is Israeli barbarity that gives off a criminal smell”

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said the fact that the occupation approved the Palestinian prisoner execution law in a first reading (sic., see note below), along with the previous criminal laws that the Israeli Parliament has legislated in the last two years against the prisoners, establishes the Israeli barbarity that gives off a criminal, terrorist, and racist smell…
Karake said that ‘legislating laws of this type is meant to continue to reject the legitimacy of the struggle and the legal legitimacy of the prisoners as freedom prisoners and legitimate fighters who fought and sacrificed for their land and its independence. These prisoners, according to international law and UN resolutions, are prisoners of a national liberation movement and legal fighters, and not criminal prisoners and criminals as Israel claims.’”

The Israeli Parliament voted in favor of a bill facilitating the death penalty for terrorists in a first reading on Jan. 3, 2018. The bill allows military courts to pass a death sentence with a simple majority of judges as opposed to a unanimous decision. It does not specify that it applies to Arab or Palestinian terrorists only.

A year has passed since the passing of heroic Fatah leader from Aleppo Archbishop Hilarion Capucci, who spent his life as a true fighter and self-sacrificing fighter (Fida’i) and a firm defender of the Palestinian people, and he adhered to the Arabness of Jerusalem with all of his might.”

The image shows former PLO and PA Chairman Yasser Arafat together with former Archbishop of Jerusalem Hilarion Capucci.

Hilarion Capucci – former Greek Catholic Archbishop of Jerusalem who exploited his status as a religious leader to smuggle weapons to Palestinian terrorists. He was arrested in 1974 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. He was released in 1977 due to the Vatican’s intervention. In October 2013, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas awarded him the Star of Jerusalem Medal. Capucci died on Jan. 1, 2017.

Madeline Manna, Coordinator, Fatah university committee Sisters of Dalal: "In the Palestinian universities, especially in the Fatah Shabiba [Student Movement], the female student committees were named after Martyr Dalal Mughrabi - Sisters of Dalal - after the Martyr who was the commander of 11 men. We learn leadership from her, and that women always lead… Dalal Mughrabi is a role model, like other heroic female Martyrs in Palestine. We draw willpower and determination from her, and perseverance and [the will to] continue this struggle."

This is our land in which we are remaining. This period is the time of Ahed Tamimi (i.e., Palestinian teenager who attacked Israeli soldiers). From Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist who led murder of 37, 12 of them children) and all of the female and male Martyrs (Shahids) who are more honorable than all of us – this is a production line that reaches my colleague [Fatah Revolutionary Council member] Kifah Harb who is speaking with you from the Balata [refugee] camp on the second screen, and she is a sister of heroes and the wife of Martyr Abdallah Daoud (i.e., terrorist responsible for many terrorist attacks), the Fatah hero, a son of the security establishment, an officer in the [PA] intelligence service, who the occupation forces accused of regularly recruiting male and female Martyrdom seekers, and especially Ayyat Al-Akhras (i.e., suicide bomber, murdered 2), a Martyr of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (i.e., Fatah's military wing) that is affiliated with the Fatah Movement. Therefore, [the occupation forces] expelled him until he died as a Martyr in Algeria. This is the Palestinian people that holds all of the tools and all of the tricks to respond to the occupation’s policy."

Official PA news agency determines which language should be used in media when reporting on prisoners 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Dec. 28, 2017
       "The participants in the workshop that the [official PA] Palestinian news and information agency WAFA and the [PA-funded] Prisoners' Club organized yesterday (Wednesday) [Dec. 27, 2017] emphasized that when dealing with the prisoners' cause there must be uniform terms that will serve the national cause and contribute to presenting the prisoners in a way that befits them…
In a working paper submitted by WAFA Agency Editor in Chief Khuloud Assaf, she emphasized that the agency has begun practical steps to develop the media terms… Assaf detailed several of the mistaken terms that are used by the Palestinian media outlets, such as calling the Palestinians of the Interior (i.e., Palestinian term for Israel) ‘Israeli Arabs,’ and also 'collective punishments' instead of 'violations'… In addition, the term 'the Palestinian demands' is used, while the correct term is 'rights'…
Fatah Movement Revolutionary Council member Kifah Harb talked about the significance of using the political and national terms and expressions so that there will be a common language that expresses the ideology of the Palestinian national movement and reflecting the suffering of our people, far from the terms that the occupation is attempting to insert into our media and drag us to using, without us understanding the danger they constitute to our national enterprise."

During the siege, the church was damaged in exchanges of fire between the terrorists and the Israeli army. One clergyman was murdered by the terrorists and 8 terrorists were killed by the Israeli army.

PA-funded Prisoners’ Club: Imprisoned Palestinian terrorists are “fighters who have fought for the freedom of their homeland,” not criminals 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 9, 2017
Headline: “The Prisoners’ Club has launched a campaign to correct the widespread historical and statistical mistakes regarding the prisoners”
     “The [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club has launched a campaign to gradually correct the historical, informative, and statistical mistakes that have clung in recent years to the media and cultural discourse regarding the documentation and investigation of the phenomenon of the Palestinian and Arab prisoners… As part of this campaign, the Prisoners’ Club has emphasized that the prisoners are not held in ‘prisons,’ but rather in ‘detention camps’ or ‘temporary security installations’ (sic., terrorists jailed in Israel are held in prisons). From this the first difference can be seen between a ‘prison’ – which is a place intended for the imprisonment of people who have committed a crime – and a ‘detention center’ – which is a place intended for the imprisonment of prisoners of war or in order to steal the freedom of political detainees. From the dawn of its existence, ‘prison’ has been intended for criminals, and it is not logical to attribute it to fighters who have fought for the freedom of their homeland. This is the second difference between considering the place where prisoners of war or political detainees are held a ‘detention camp’ or [considering it] a ‘prison,’ as this is a place meant for imprisoning criminals in the eyes of civilian law.”

      “Six Palestinian Martyrs (Shahids) are still being held in the State of Israel’s morgue refrigerators, and the number was higher than this, but several of them were buried in what is called the military numbered cemeteries (i.e., Israeli cemeteries for terrorists and enemy soldiers). According to the Talmudic (i.e., Jewish) legend, the souls of the Palestinians remain alive, and the Israelis are concerned about their existence and return, and that is what causes them to freeze their bodies or leave them at the mercies of predatory animals in the numbered cemeteries… The Israeli Supreme Court and prosecution are still delaying in releasing the six Martyrs who are in the Israeli [morgue] refrigerators due to the concern over the Martyrs’ awakening from their popular funerals, and over the intifada of the freely spilled blood, and also due to the fear of the symbolism and great esteem for the Palestinian Martyr who resisted the occupation, and also [fear] of the legitimacy of this resistance in response to Israel’s attempts to turn everyone who resisted the occupation into a criminal, whether he is a Martyr or a prisoner.”

Former PA Minister of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Ashraf Al-Ajrami: “Regarding the knifings, and the people who stab, I want you to review what the security forces in Israel are saying. All of the [Palestinian] people who are participating in stabbings are completely against the Palestinian Authority. No one is responding to what is called [PA President] Mahmoud Abbas’ ‘incitement’ or I don’t know what…
Regarding the payments [of the prisoners’ salaries by the PA]... When I was the [PA] minister of prisoners’ affairs in 2007, I refused to implement the law, the law of payments. During my time, no one received a lot of money – [no one received] so much money, because I basically want – that what is important to the prisoners’ family is to live in dignity.

      “Yesterday [Aug. 24, 2017] activists – led by leaders and senior officials - launched the activities of the National Day for Returning the Palestinian and Arab Martyrs’ (Shahids’) Bodies that will take place next Sunday, Aug. 27 [2017] next to the monument for the Martyrs of the Savoy operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered) in Ramallah.
The activities began with a visit to the monument and the placing of flower bouquets, with the participation of District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam, PLO Executive Committee member Saleh Rafat, the director of the Jerusalem Center for Legal Aid, and Martyrs’ families…
In her speech during the event, District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh [Laila Ghannam] linked the occupation to the continued holding of the bodies. She said: ‘The existence of the Israeli occupation means that there will continue to be more Martyrs whose bodies will be held in the occupation’s cemeteries and [morgue] refrigerators. This matter needs to end through the end of the occupation, which executes our sons and daughters daily and holds their bodies.’ … She continued: ‘It is the right of [the Martyrs’] relatives to identify them and that their sons be returned to them, despite of the fact that it does not matter where they are buried – their souls have ascended to Heaven and have been honored by the Lord of the Universe.’”

A picture included in the article shows a sign on which is written: “The holding of the Martyrs’ bodies is a crime that harms human dignity.”

Official PA TV program The TV Dictionary, on Fuad Hijazi who murdered Jews in the 1929 Hebron massacre and accompanying riots and was put to death by the British Mandate forces

Official PA TV Newsreader: “An hour before the death sentence was carried out, the British occupation authorities allowed them to meet their visitors, while wearing the red uniforms of those sentenced to death and awaiting their final hour. The Martyrs’ (Shahids’) mouths smiled, their souls were calm, and their courage was great. They are the ones who consoled and encouraged the visitors, instead of [the visitors] encouraging them.”

Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir “committed particularly brutal murders [of Jews] at Safed and Hebron,” according to the report by British Government to the League of Nations. They were convicted of attacking British soldiers and murdering Jews in the 1929 Hebron Massacre, in which 65 Jews were murdered. They were executed by the British in 1930.

As for you, youth from Kubar, Omar Al-Abd – your name has been perpetuated in the Palestinian wedding songs, and we will build you and your family a home even if they destroy it a thousand times...

Psychologist Jultan Hijazi: "After 1967, the role of women evolved from an institutional stage to a stage of struggle and self-sacrifice. We saw many examples of this, such as Laila Khaled (i.e., participated in 2 plane hijackings), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., led murder of 37), and Fatima Barnawi (i.e., placed bomb in cinema) who was the first female Palestinian prisoner. These women, through their operations, recorded wonderful acts of heroism that the generations still see as an example... The women also had a role in the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2015 (i.e., terror wave, 2015-2016), and we saw how women attacked the Israeli soldiers at checkpoints in stabbing operations... I want to mention the mother of Martyr Muhammad Farahat (i.e., murdered 5), a Martyr from Gaza. In 2002, I think, she led him to the gate of the Israeli settlement where he carried out a military operation and killed several soldiers (sic., murdered 5 students)... As a mother, I am incapable of doing what she did, but she constitutes an example for the struggle, and she succeeded in strengthening the national values... Women carry out a large role in the children's psychological preparation."

The Israeli institute for monitoring Palestinian media, which is known as [Palestinian] Media Watch (i.e., PMW), said that PA TV, its hosts, and its guests described the one who carried out the Halamish operation as merciful and humane due to the fact that he did not kill the children in the house he broke into two weeks ago, where he killed a soldier and his parents (sic., the terrorist murdered a grandfather and two of his adult children, not any soldiers) but did not kill the children."

However, he preferred not to do so as she was a mother holding two of her children in her arms, and thus he proved that ‘morals have a place, even in war. '

“My will to you
A blessing and peace will come to the most honored of mankind, the Prophet who was sent [by Allah], our master Muhammad. Read my will, which is also my last words to you. I’m a young person whose age does not exceed 20. I have many dreams and aspirations. In the past I knew that with the help of Allah my dreams would come true. I loved life [and wanted] to sketch a smile on people’s faces. But what sort of life is this? A life in which our women are murdered and our young people are abused, and they defile our Al-Aqsa Mosque, the place of our beloved [Prophet Muhammad’s] Night Journey, while we are asleep. Isn’t it a disgrace for us to sit idle? You whose weapons are covered with rust, you who only take out your weapons for display – aren’t you ashamed of yourselves? They’ve declared war on Allah. Isn’t Allah deserving of you making efforts for Him? They closed the Al-Aqsa Mosque (refers to Israel closing the Temple Mount for two days and placing metal detectors at its entrances following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below –Ed.), and your weapon did not respond to the call! All that is in my hands is a sharpened knife, and it answers the call of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Be ashamed to show your face! Be ashamed, you who arouse strife (i.e., the Hamas-Fatah rift) among us! Allah will take revenge on you and you will give an accounting before Allah! It is enough that we are all sons of Palestine and sons of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

       “[PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas acted wisely and rationally when he expressed his opposition to acts of violence by any side, and particularly those that take place within houses of worship, because the Palestinian people’s interests are in need of his protection as the main one responsible for [protecting them]…
President Mahmoud Abbas was and is the bravest president and leader in the world. He does not worry that he will be condemned (i.e., by Palestinians) when the matter necessitates a clear and explicit position that will protect the people’s interests, because the leadership is interested in pushing back the threats and not drawing them close by taking impulsive positions."

Fatah Central Committee member and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations Abbas Zaki: "The source of this operation (i.e., terror attack at the Temple Mount on July 14, 2017, 2 murdered; see note below) is in the depths of the '48 territories (i.e., Israel), from Umm Al-Fahm, by people that hold Israeli identity cards, and they know the changes that are taking place within Israel better than anyone…
These young people, instead of coming from Umm Al-Fahm to Jerusalem, could have killed 20 Israelis, but they chose Friday, and chose that their spirits would ascend to Paradise from the place where Prophet [Muhammad] ascended to Heaven, and this has dangerous significance…
In a situation where there is a void in national activity and failure of the political path, nobody can stop people who want to die…
I foresee that we are standing before a severe eruption. It is impossible to know how this eruption will manifest . Whether we condemn or support [it is irrelevant]; the operation was carried out by people from the '48 territories who have Israeli identity cards…

"Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake warned against the consequences of the unprecedented legal and diplomatic attack that the Israeli occupation government is carrying out against the prisoners' rights…
Karake said that the occupation is attacking the prisoners in a different way than in the past, as it no longer is satisfied with harassing prisoners inside the prison by using means of oppression and harming their rights and dignity, but rather is also attempting to deny the prisoners their political and legal aspect as a cause of national liberation…
Karake mentioned the nature of the Israeli attack against the prisoners through arbitrary laws that the Israeli Parliament legislates, the widespread incitement against the prisoners, and considering them as criminals and terrorists…
Karake said these things during visits to families of prisoners, Martyrs (Shahids), and released prisoners in the Hebron, Bethlehem, and Ramallah districts for the blessed Eid Al-Fitr (i.e., Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadan)…

During his life, he was an outstanding leader, a ferocious fighter, and a proud prisoner, and in his death he is an eternal Martyr... One of his acts of heroism [was] when an armed DFLP squad carried out the Ma’alot operation in the Galilee (i.e., terror attack, 26 murdered) and took [an Israeli] building and hostages. The [Israeli] prison management summoned Al-Qassem... and asked him to talk with the self-sacrificing fighters so they would turn themselves in and release the hostages... When he turned to his comrades, he said: ‘‘O comrades, I am Omar Al-Qassem. Carry out what you came for. Your enemy is treacherous.’’ Immediately after his few words, his comrades responded to the call and blew up the military academy (sic., Netiv Meir Elementary School) so that their souls would float as Martyrs above the skies of Palestine."

        “One of the new examples of the persecution of the living (i.e., eternal) Martyrs as part of Israeli policy is the government of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s threat to invade Jenin if the [Jenin] Municipality and [Jenin] District refuse to remove the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)... It would appear that there are those who almost submitted to the Israeli extortion, on the pretext of profit-loss considerations... The Martyr Nazzal monument, which was restored by members of the Jenin branch of the Fatah Movement, reflects the conscious and responsible national will, which understands the severity of the structural flaw in the outlook of those who almost damaged the Palestinian narrative (i.e., who temporarily removed the monument due to Israeli pressure). [Those people] did not grasp the dangerous consequences of their wretched step when they acceded to Israel’s will and [the will] of those who act like Israelis, because they are short-sighted and did not see beyond their noses. Therefore, well done fighters of Fatah and the national activity factions, who mobilized to defend the heroic Martyr Khaled Nazzal monument.”

The Front said in a notice published by its organization in the Jenin district that the fact that the municipality changed its mind constitutes a correct national decision, a victory for the status of the Martyrs, and devotion to the supreme national and human values that they represent in the hearts of our people, its history, and its memory.
It added: ‘This heroic position expresses the public unity not only around Martyr Khaled Nazzal, but around all of the Martyrs of our people and our symbols of heroism, as well as loyalty to their sacrifice, and particularly of the Martyrs and prisoners. Standing by these heroes and the support for them is a national obligation that demands that we all together continue their path and their sacrifice, and particularly after the racist attack by [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and the American administration whose goal is to force our national movement to renounce our Martyrs and erase our national heritage.’

PA chief negotiator Erekat falsely claims: Israel guilty of incitement and dedicating landmarks to ‘terrorists’, glorifies ‘Zionist terror’

Headline: "Erekat warned against cooperation with the Israeli narrative of incitement"

"Secretary of the PLO Executive Committee[, Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator] Saeb Erekat rejected the false accusations and claims that Israel is spreading regarding what it calls 'the official Palestinian incitement.'
Erekat emphasized in a statement this evening, Thursday [June 22, 2017], that the occupation government is working continuously to deflect attention and to find new and misleading excuses such as 'the claims of incitement' every time an opportunity is created to revive the political process, in contrast to the Palestinian leadership that is committed to the two-state solution and the full implementation of international law.
Erekat's response came in the wake of Israel’s ongoing attempts to call our people’s national struggle terror and to turn our fighter Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners since the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution into criminals.
Erekat explained that the reason that Israel refuses to revive the tripartite committee that deals with incitement stems from the built-in policy of the right-wing government to incite and glorify Zionist terror. He said: 'One example of this is the fact that [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu himself inaugurated a hospital last April that was named after [former Israeli Prime Minister] Yitzhak Shamir, the terrorist responsible for the killing of hundreds of civilians, including [his] issuing the orders to assassinate UN Peace Mediator Count Folke Bernadotte from Sweden, in addition to blowing up the King David Hotel [in Jerusalem], which led to the death of dozens of civilians (Shamir was a leader of the pre-state Jewish militia Lehi that assassinated Count Bernadotte –Ed.)."

This is an obligation regulated by law, and under its framework the PA is obligated to provide them with education services and medical and social insurance.

The British Mandate forces arrested Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir together with a group of young Palestinians following the Al-Buraq Rebellion... At the time, the Mandate police (sic., court) sentenced 26 Palestinians who took part in defending the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., took part in the Hebron Massacre) to death. Later it lightened the sentences of 23 of them to life, but left the death sentence against Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir in place… The day before their execution, the three heroes wrote a letter in which was stated: ‘Now, as we stand before the gates of eternity and give our souls for the holy homeland, precious Palestine, we ask of all Palestinians that our spilled blood and our souls – which will hover in the skies of this beloved land – not be forgotten.’”

Tillerson told a Senate hearing on Tuesday (June 13, 2017) he had received reassurances from [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas that the Palestinian Authority would end the practice of paying a monthly stipend to the families of suicide bombers and other attackers, commonly referred to by Palestinians as Martyrs (Shahids)...
But Palestinian officials said they were not aware of any change and that it was unlikely a policy that has been a cornerstone of social support for decades would be altered. ‘There have been talks about making the payments in a different way, but not ending them,’ said one official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to comment on discussions held with the Americans. ‘They could perhaps be labeled differently,’ he said, suggesting the description ‘Martyr’ could be dropped, but he added: ‘They are not going to be stopped.’"

However, the uprooting and occupying Israeli colonialism destroyed and threatened her life and the lives of her people throughout the entire world, which created the political circumstances that caused the young Palestinians to join the ranks of their national factions to defend the national rights that were stolen by colonialist Israel…
