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.”

We can be proud of the fact that we are the only ones in the world that have said ‘no’ to [US President Donald] Trump and to everyone that is attempting to nullify our existence, our rights, and our national enterprise, which will triumph due to the motivation of the young people and the spirit of the Palestinian people.’”

Official PA TV host: “On Jan. 1, 1965, the first bullet was shot – the self-sacrifice operation that surprised the Israeli enemy with the destruction of the Eilabun tunnel (sic., the attempted bombing of Israel's National Water Carrier), during which fighter Ahmad [Musa] Salameh – who became the first Martyr (Shahid) of the Palestinian revolution – died as a Martyr. The Israeli response came in the words of then [Israeli] Prime Minister Golda Meir, who said: ‘A storm from the north has struck us’ (PMW could find no record of such a statement –Ed.)

This is how Fatah has operated since its Launch (“Intilaqa,” refers to Fatah’s first attempted terror attack against Israel; see note below –Ed.); it did not search for easy solutions.
Fatah chose to go out against the armies of [former Israeli Chief of Staff] Moshe Dayan, which had come from an easy and quick victory over the neighboring armies, and thus was the Karameh Battle (see note below –Ed.).
Fatah paid no attention to the balance of power when [former Israeli Chief of Staff Ariel] Sharon came with his armies up to the edges of Beirut, and instead of hiding in dark tunnels, Fatah and the leadership chose to build barricades and defend the nation’s honor."

This is because he is a national Palestinian rebel who targeted armed occupying soldiers and settlers, [and] whose human morals, national education, and religious spiritual culture prevented him from killing an Israeli Jewish woman and her child, and he diverted them from passing there."

      “Even after the beginning of the first signs of the self-sacrificing (Fida’i) activity in the Gaza Strip in the mid-1950s – during the period of the Tripartite Aggression (i.e., the Suez Crisis) in which Israel, the main enemy of the Palestinian people, worked hand in hand with Britain and France – the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood did not take part in this. This was to such an extent that some of those who were counted among the Brotherhood carried out Palestinian activity after leaving the organization, and the Brotherhood hated them, considered them heretics, were hostile to them, and seriously slandered them. They did this to every comrade of theirs who thought to join the struggle, as they also did to the young commander full of patriotism, Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi (i.e., founder of the Islamic Jihad terrorist organization), who left them after he became convinced that they were not made for this, but rather in order to constitute a burden on the Palestinian struggle in general. This was obvious in the quantity of their attacks against Dr. Fathi Shaqaqi, whom Israel assassinated afterwards as it did many other Palestinian leaders, but his memory will remain eternally in the life of Palestine.”

It also called to stand firm and resist with all legal and appropriate means, to continue to build on what has been achieved and defend it, and to depend on the Palestinian spirit that has not broken under the strongest blows in history."

The latest case was the destruction of the home of heroic Martyr (Shahid) Ashraf Na'alwa (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2), who received great glory for having caused the Israeli occupation army and all of the occupation's security forces to run after him for more than two months in order to reach him and summarily execute him (sic., he was killed in a shootout while resisting arrest)… None of this interested Hamas, except to quickly claim in an embarrassing frenzy that Ashraf Na'alwa was from Hamas – although he was not a Hamas member and was never affiliated with it. He is an example of the heroes that act alone, who are born out of the Palestinian pain."

Text on cartoon: “The homes of the Martyrs (Shahids)”

The cartoon shows a “Martyr” sitting on a cloud with a halo over his head looking at the backhoe of a construction vehicle, which is extended upward towards him but is unable to reach him. The cartoon refers to the demolition of the home of Um Nasser Abu Hmeid – and her terrorist sons who murdered at least 10 – on Dec. 15, 2018, because of the murder committed by her son Islam Yusuf Abu Hmeid. Another of Abu Hmeid’s sons, dead terrorist Abd Al-Mun’im Abu Hmeid who is frequently referred to by the PA as a “Martyr,” appears to be the “Martyr” indicated by the cartoon.

Official PA TV filler, excerpt of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Oct. 28, 2018 speech about terrorist salaries


PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: "I say this to everyone – the salaries of our Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded are a red line. They [Israel] try by all means, and exert pressure by all means, and they continue to exert: ‘It cannot be that you will pay.’ And they’ll even deduct our money that’s in their hands. They’ll deduct from it the amount that we pay to the Martyrs. We have said that this is a red line and we will not allow [it]. From 1965 until now, this matter is sacred to us. The Martyrs and their families are sacred, [and so are] the wounded and the prisoners. We must pay all of them. If one penny remains in our hands it is for them and not for the living."

Excerpt of op-ed by Yahya Rabah, a columnist for the official PA daily and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza

    "The significance of the spilling of Israeli blood lies in the fact that it occurred after the reverberating failure of the American proposal at the [UN] General Assembly, which wanted to mark Hamas as a terror [organization] (see note below –Ed.). This American resolution failed in a shameful manner... Therefore, we saw [US President Donald] Trump agitated and pitiful because his proposal failed, and this idiot returned to babbling about what he has already babbled about in the past, and threatened to punish the states that voted against his resolution and brought it down with great shame! By Allah, is this man suitable to be the president of the US? He does nothing but fail, and only receives slaps on the cheek!
The second criminal, [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, sent his army in great numbers and laid siege to the Ramallah and El-Bireh district! […]
Heroic Martyr (Shahid) Ashraf Na'alwa (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) and heroic Martyr Saleh Barghouti (i.e., terrorist, murdered baby and wounded 7)… are Palestinian Martyrs, who came from the Palestinian time and experienced the bitter Palestinian experience. Each one of them is a rose that grew out of a wound, and the wound is Palestinian, and they will be born one million and one times in the names of new heroes that will be born in the fields of Palestinian creativity."

Fatah official justifies terror attack in which 2 were murdered: Terror attacks are responses to Israel’s alleged “policy of summary execution” against innocent Palestinians

Posted text: “When the occupation army soldiers do as they please on the Palestinian land and sow ruin and destruction in it, and when Israeli soldiers implement a policy of summary executions against the members of our people and execute three young Palestinians in one night, Israel must understand that the extent of the Palestinian response will be according to the extent of these attacks. Its leaders must understand that they are unable to defend even their soldiers (refers to Givat Assaf attack in which 2 Israeli soldiers were murdered –Ed.). They have attempted all of the criminal means to force our people to submit and wave a white flag, but all of their attempts have failed. Only one path remains for Israel that will ensure the wellbeing of its soldiers and settlers: full withdrawal by the occupation and its murderous settlers to the June 4, 1967 borders.

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “What I want first of all is that you [Americans] take back the things you have done: in other words, transferring the embassy to Jerusalem – a mistake. Cancelling the aid to UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East) – a mistake. And say what you have said more than once: That the borders are the 1967 ones and [the solution is] two states. After all, this was much talked about already in the days of [former US President George W.] Bush the son, so why have you taken it back? This is in regards to the Americans. Afterwards, what happened two days ago [Dec. 6, 2018] – they published a statement or proposed a [UN] resolution in which they want to consider the Hamas Movement a terror [organization]. Okay, they asked me: ‘What’s your opinion?’ I told them my opinion is that the Hamas Movement is part of our people, and I do not agree that terror be ascribed to it. I do not accept that it is a terror [organization]. Therefore, they went and submitted the resolution to the [UN] General Assembly.”

Yasser Arafat – Founder of Fatah, former chairman of the PA. During the 1960s, 70s and 80s Arafat was behind numerous terror attacks against Israelis. Although he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 together with then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and then Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Shimon Peres “for their efforts to create peace in the Middle East" after signing the Oslo Accords peace agreement, Arafat launched a 5-year terror campaign - the second Intifada (2000-2005) – in which more than 1,000 Israelis were murdered. Arafat died of an illness in 2004.

"The Israeli government – which tries to protect those who steal the Palestinian land and to deny the rights of the Palestinian people, which have been established by international decisions and law – is incapable of protecting anyone that steals the Palestinian land, regardless of what [military] equipment it owns, how much power it has, and how much it uses terror and murder. Today's [Oct. 7, 2018] operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered) is additional proof of this.
The only solution lies in recognizing the rights of our people, by realizing the Palestinian national independence in the framework of a free and fully sovereign state, which will be established on the occupied land and on the June 4, 1967, borders, and whose capital is East Jerusalem.
Any attempt to bypass these rights will not benefit Israel and will not bring security to it and its citizens as nobody will achieve security as long as our people remains denied its rights in its homeland.

“The Hamas Movement welcomed the stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack, 1 murdered) at the Gush Etzion shopping center in Bethlehem (sic., at Gush Etzion Junction), which is in the southern occupied West Bank. It led to a settler dying from his wounds.
Hamas Movement Spokesman Abd Al-Latif Al-Qanu’a said following the operation: ‘We welcome the stabbing operation in Bethlehem, which took place in parallel to the sacrifices by our people in the March of Return (refers to violent riots on the Gazan border; see note below –Ed.).’

Nasser Awais was the first to establish the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in the homeland and was the secretary-general of the Brigades.

Text and picture posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

“For the 46th anniversary of the Munich operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered): Commander Martyr Salah Khalaf, Abu Iyad (i.e. terrorist, responsible for murder of more than 13), wrote in his book Palestinian Without an Identity: ‘The motive behind the Munich operation was the refusal of the Olympic Games Committee to include Palestinian athletes in the 1972 Olympics, claiming that in reality Palestine does not exist. The goal was to draw the world’s attention to the Palestinian cause and to demand the release of 200 Arab and foreign prisoners from the Israeli prisons.’”

The Munich Olympics massacre - a terrorist attack perpetrated by the Palestinian terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah, during the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, in which they murdered 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team.

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.

PA television program for Ramadan remembers terrorist murderer of 2 as a “Martyr,” refers to terrorist attacks as “operations”

Official PA TV, new program Jerusalem Ramadan for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan on various sites in Jerusalem’s Old City

Official PA TV host: “Of course there are many stores on this street, [Al-Wad Street,] and if we pay attention there is an intensive, constant, and daily presence of occupation soldiers and authorities here. If we go back to the central reason for this intensive presence of occupation soldiers and authorities, the reason is that on March 10, 2015, young Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist, murdered 2) became a Martyr (Shahid) on this street, and several Martyrdom-seeking operations (i.e., terror attacks) by young people from Jerusalem took place here.”

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Op-ed in official PA daily glorifies terrorist responsible for the murder of 125 people, refers to Israel as a “myth that was born out of emptiness” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Apr. 19, 2018
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad’ on the 30th anniversary of his death as a Martyr”

“His dream of a comprehensive revolution was very early, and the distance between his mind and his fingertips through which he implemented his ideas was very short, a negligible distance. Therefore, Khalil Al-Wazir (i.e., terrorist Abu Jihad, responsible for murder of 125) the youth, who in 1954 was still wearing school pants and riding his bicycle, had already realized the beginning of his great dream and expressed his ideas by creating the first bomb that was planted in the water project in the Israeli Nahal Oz settlement located in the Gaza Envelope (i.e., area in Israel near the Gaza border. Possibly refers to an attempted bombing of the Zohar water reservoir in 1955 –Ed.)
That same small explosive was an expression of the fetus that developed within the oppressed and wounded Palestinian people, whose wound was disparaged by all, and who the large [powers] belittled, openly conspired against, and stole its homeland and gave it for free as a gift to a myth that was born out of emptiness, whose name is Israel.”

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir)
- a founder of Fatah and deputy to Yasser Arafat. He headed the PLO terror organization's military wing and also planned many deadly Fatah terror attacks in the 1960’s - 1980’s. These attacks, which murdered a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and murder of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Fatah official on the PA’s payment of salaries to terrorists and families of “martyrs”: “The Martyrs are more precious than all of us together… the prisoners are our compasses”

Headline: “Dr. Muhaisen: Our national unity is the rock on which all of the plots against our cause will be shattered”

“The Al-Quds magazine [of Fatah’s Information and Culture Commission in Lebanon] spoke with Fatah Movement Central Committee member, [Fatah] Commissioner of Mobilization and Organization in the Southern Districts (i.e., the Gaza Strip, sic., he holds this position in the West Bank), [and PLO Central Council member] Jamal Muhaisen…
[Question:] ‘“Israel” is continuing its war against the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids), and this time has announced its intention to deduct their salaries (rawatib) from the [PA] tax money (refers to a new Israeli bill; see note below –Ed.). What is your opinion on this matter?’
[Jamal Muhaisen:] ‘The Martyrs are more precious than all of us together, as they died defending the Arabness of the Palestinian land, and the prisoners are our compasses who sacrificed their freedom for the freedom of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian land. Both of them have sacrificed for our right and historical identity, and this is their right and our obligation. When we talk about how there were approximately a million Palestinian prisoners in the Zionist prisons, what this means is that the entire Palestinian people is forbidden from receiving any kind of salary. These Martyrs also died due to the crimes committed by the occupation soldiers without any reason or restrictions …
Our Martyrs and prisoners are Palestinian national symbols, and we will continue to pay their salaries to their families, even if we will need to deduct from everyone’s salaries, and it does not matter what this will cost us.’"
