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].


This violent image of a dagger being thrust into the Star of David has appeared hundreds of times in a video clip for children on PA TV, from 2001 – 2008.

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.”

Op-ed in PA daily praises terrorist who organized 1980 terror attack in Hebron in which 6 were killed and 16 injured  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 24, 2016
Headline: “Martyr Muhammad Bassem Al-Tamimi (Hamdi) [parentheses in source]”
Op-ed by Issa Abd Al-Hafiz
     “[He was] born in Hebron on Feb. 14, 1952, and joined national activity early, while still in high school. He was arrested in 1968-9 before he finished high school… Among the important operations (i.e., terror attacks) he carried out together with Abu Hassan Qassem was the Daboya operation (i.e., terror attack, 6 murdered, 20 injured), in which the two succeeded in bringing a group of young fighters from the student brigade into the West Bank, and more specifically, into Hebron. The Daboya operation was a turning point of [high] quality in the activity of the Palestinian struggle in 1980. It was not a suicide operation, but rather an offensive operation against armed settlers in the heart of Hebron, which turned it into a quality operation in every way. 13 armed settlers fell in the operation, and members of the [Palestinian] squad succeeded in hiding in the city and its mountains.”

Beit Hadassah terror attack (Daboya) – terror attack in Hebron in which 6 Israelis were murdered: Tzvi Glatt, Eli HaZe’ev, Shmuel Marmelstein, Hanan Krauthhammer, Gershon Klein and Ya’akov Zimmerman, and 16 were wounded, on May 2, 1980.
The Palestian terrorists who committed the attack are Adnan Jaber, Yasser Ziyadat, Tayseer Mahmoud Taha Abu Sneineh, and Muhammad Abd Al-Rahman Saleh Al-Shubaki.

Posted text: “Did you know that Fairuz’s song Alone They Remain was written in honor of these three? For anyone who does not know the story of the song Alone They Remain Like the Elderberry Flowers that Fairuz sings, it was written by the Lebanese poet Talal Haidar… There was a period when Talal Haidar would drink his morning coffee and would notice three young men entering the forest in the morning and come out again in the evening, and every time they entered and came out, they greeted Talal..  He worried about them until he heard the news that three young Arabs carried out a self-sacrifice (Fida'i) operation (i.e., terror attack, 18 murdered) within the Zionist entity. When he saw the picture of the three, he was surprised that the three young men who died as Martyrs (Shahids) were the same young men he had gotten used to receiving greetings from morning and evening. This operation became known as the Al-Khalisa operation (i.e., the Kiryat Shmona massacre, April 11, 1974), that was carried out in the settlement of Kiryat Shmona in northern occupied Palestine on the morning of April 11, 1974. Its heroes were fighters of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) – the General command, the Palestinian Munir Mughrabi ‘Abu Khaled,’ the Syrian from Aleppo Ahmad Al-Sheikh Mahmoud, and the Iraqi Yassin Musa Fazza Al-Houzani ‘Abu Hadi,’ who died as a Martyr on the day of the operation.”

Headline: “Abu Jihad – the legend of the memory, and memories of the generations and the revolution”
       “Abu Jihad was a highly discerning fighter, who turned the revolution into a goal, who caused the occupation great concern and made it lose sleep when things became complex, and he became an inspiration, beginning with the first bullet, through the Al-Karameh battle, and ending with the first Intifada of 1987 (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993). When Abu Jihad is mentioned, the [pages of] the diaries turn over and there are hardly any stories without the commander’s spirit blended into them – there Dalal Mughrabi’s heroic operation (i.e., terror attack, 37 murdered) shattered the walls… On the anniversary of the death of the Prince of Martyrs [Abu Jihad], who headed the school of entrenchment in the trench of basic principles, his words come to me and beat at my ears – the intifada is a permanent decision and a daily act reflecting the rootedness of the Palestinian people and its renewed historic continuity, no voice is louder than the voice of the intifada and the occupation’s fate will be determined on the ground of Palestine alone.”

PA seeks Nobel Peace Prize for imprisoned terrorist Marwan Barghouti as "a call to recognize the legitimacy of the prisoners' struggle" 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Apr. 14, 2016
     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners [and Released Prisoners'] Affairs published a report on the occasion of the prisoner leader Marwan Barghouti (i.e., terrorist who orchestrated three shooting attacks in which 5 were murdered) entering his 15th year of imprisonment in the occupation’s prisons, as he was abducted (he was arrested –Ed.) on April 15, 2002, and sentenced to five life sentences and an additional 40 years [of imprisonment].
The report says that the anniversary of Marwan Barghouti’s arrest coincides this year with the launch of the campaign in support of Barghouti’s candidacy for the Nobel Peace Prize…
The Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs said that Barghouti’s candidacy for the Nobel Peace Prize has several symbolic meanings and political, humanitarian, and legal messages expressed as follows:
1. The prisoners have the greatest right to enjoy a just and true peace, and they have fought and sacrificed for freedom, peace, and honor and an end to the injustice and the occupation.
2. No just peace in the region can occur without the prisoners’ release, as they are a basic part of any arrangement or agreement with Israel.
3. The candidacy [of Marwan Barghouti] is essentially a call to recognize the legitimacy of the prisoners’ struggle and their legal standing as prisoners of freedom and prisoners protected by Geneva conventions and international law, and also a response to the claims and Israeli terms that do not recognize the legitimacy of their struggle, and treat them as ‘terrorists and criminals,’ and not as prisoners of a national liberation movement.”

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: "She [Dalal Mughrabi] was chosen from among the young men to be the leader of the mission, and the director of the mission was [the person] of stature, Abu Jihad, who chose her to lead this mission. This mission is what established the Republic of Palestine for about 50 hours. Israel did not know what happened, they faced difficulties, even Ehud Barak (a military unit commander at the time, later served as Prime Minister of Israel –Ed.) when he arrived and found she was a woman, he 'stepped on her head.' They did not expect that the heroism, courage and will would be present in this mission leader [Dalal], when they found out she was a woman."

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.

Abu Jihad (Khalil Al-Wazir) was 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. These attacks, which killed a total of 125 Israelis, included the most lethal in Israeli history - the hijacking of a bus and killing of 37 civilians, 12 of them children.

Exactly at this time, on Thursday evening, March 9, 1978, Dalal Mughrabi and her comrades disembarked from the ship into their inflatable boats, in order to write with their pure blood a story and history of a people and revolution that have never bowed down before their enemies. More than a day after they got lost at sea, they reached the shore of Ma’agan Michael (i.e., Israeli kibbutz) on Saturday morning, March 11, 1978. They continued on their way to Tel Aviv and took over the first bus that transported Zionists, and raised the Palestinian flag for the first time on the Haifa- Tel Aviv road. After heroic battles inside the bus, most of the operation members died as Martyrs, but they will remain in their people’s hearts forever.”

     "The Palestinian Khansa, Um Nasser Abu Hmeid, sorrowfully said that the occupation prevents her from visiting her sons, under the pretext that she and her sons are not blood relatives. She said that [International] Women's Day, Mother's Day, and Palestinian holidays are difficult for her and her family… due to the distance from her sons, who are sitting in the same fascist solitary confinement [cells] and serving life sentences… Um Nasser Abu Hmeid said these things during a visit by District Governor of Ramallah and El-Bireh Laila Ghannam and Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake to honor her."

Note: The report said nothing about why Israel claimed Abu Hmeid is not blood related and did not attempt to explain why this matter would have been raised.

Um Yousuf Abu Hmeid (Latifa Abu Hmeid) - The mother of four prisoners serving multiple life sentences. She is also called Khansa of Palestine (referring to a woman in the earliest period of Islam who sent her four sons to battle and rejoiced when they all died as Martyrs), honored in 2010 and in 2015 by the PA, and was chosen in 2011 to launch the PA’s statehood campaign with the UN.

      “The Progressive Student Action front at An-Najah University organized a mourning vigil last Thursday [March 3, 2016] for the soul of Martyr (Shahid) commander Omar Al-Naif, who was a victim of the assassination at the Palestinian embassy in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria.  Hundreds of students and representatives of the student blocs gathered in the main plaza of the new campus. The vigil began with the national anthem and a minute of silence for the Martyr’s soul and the souls of the homeland’s Martyrs. The vigil included a speech by the secretary of the Progressive Student Action, in which he recounted the Martyr's illustrious deeds, his life of struggle, and his heroic operation (i.e., terror attack) which led to his capture by the occupation, and then to his escape from prison, where he had started his journey while hiding inside the homeland, shattering the Israeli security establishment’s intelligence aura and its arrogance. He then left the homeland for Bulgaria and settled there, until the hand of treason reached him and assassinated him.”

Omar Al-Naif – Palestinian terrorist who carried out an attack with two other terrorists, murdering Israeli Eliahu Amdi in the Old City of Jerusalem on Nov. 15, 1986. He was arrested and sentenced to life, but after beginning a hunger strike, he was transferred to a mental hospital from which he escaped in 1990. He escaped to an Arab country and in 1994 moved to Bulgaria. On Feb. 26, 2016 he was found dead on the grounds of the Palestinian embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria, where he had taken shelter two months earlier. Bulgaria has stated that no signs of violence were found on his body. However Palestinians insist that he was assassinated by Israel.

Headline: “Martyr Baha Alyan came to life in Gaza”
     “About two years ago, Baha Alyan, 22, left his mark by participating in the organization of the activity ‘the longest chain of readers around the walls of Jerusalem,’ and at the beginning of the Jerusalem Intifada (i.e., wave of terror attacks from September 2015 - continuing) he left a different mark by way of the operation (i.e., terror attack) that he carried out together with the [now] prisoner Bilal Ghanem. Baha died in the operation, but his idea did not, and it was adopted by additional young people in Hebron, who promised to continue what he began, and organized a similar activity. (So-called “human chains of readers” were held at the Hebron University, Birzeit University and Al-Quds University –Ed.)
A few months later, Gazan girls revived the idea with the launching of the chain of Palestinian readers that is meant to take place on the upcoming March 3 [2016] in the Gaza port, and thus unite the continuation of the Martyr’s (Shahid’s) dream, and the encouragement of the idea of reading, and to tell the world that a ‘nation that reads’ needs to resist by way of reading as it resists by way of weapons.”

Your bomb [fragments] are inside the enemy’s body
You did not allow any bus to drive in the street without its roof flying into the sky
The roof along with body parts...
O bearer of good news, strap on an explosive belt
Nothing will be told about the Intifada except for the roof of the bus that flew off
O Martyrdom seeker, respond to Al-Aqsa’s call
Make the bomb even more powerful
Bring [Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu down
And the losses should be too many for him to count
Scatter them in all directions, terrorize their families
Have no mercy on the settlers
Onward, send them to Hell
They have nothing but graveyards...
O Martyrdom seeker, make them weep
Let fire burn them, turn them into body parts, roast them...
We want the street to overflow with dead and the blood to increase their suffering"

PMW released a report on Feb. 4, 2016 in Hebrew that documented that three Arab members of the Israeli Parliament met with families of terrorists who recently attacked and murdered Israelis, sparking a political storm in Israel.

Headline
: "Incitement campaign in Israel against Arab MPs due to their meeting with Jerusalem Martyrs' (Shahids) families"
     "Three [Israeli] Arab MPs awakened the rage of the Israeli political echelon after they met with the families of those who carried out operations (i.e., terror attacks) against Israelis, or their representatives. The Balad Party, a member, together with other Arab parties, of the 'Joint List,' the third [largest] power in the [Israeli] parliament, clarified in a notice that the three MPs wanted to fulfill 'their obligation to help bereaved families regain the bodies being held by the Israeli authorities in a manner opposed to all humanitarian and international norms and laws,' and added that the holding of the bodies is ‘an act of revenge and injury to the families' religious and human feelings’... Balad condemned the incitement, which it described as 'crude and light-headed,' against its MPs. Balad stated in an announcement: '[Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and his choir have lost their senses in their call to banish the Balad MPs from parliament. However, we know that when the trumpets of Fascism incite against us, it means that we are protecting human values. Not returning the bodies (i.e., of the terrorists) is an act of revenge and injury to the families' religious and human feelings. We will not give in to Netanyahu, [Israeli Minister of Education Naftali] Bennett, and [Israeli MP Avigdor] Lieberman's incitement, and will not change our standpoint, even slightly."

      “Israeli Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Hotovely published an article last week in the American Wall Street Journal, titled ‘Where Does All That Aid for Palestinians Go .’ [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s deputy wondered where the aid funds have gone that have been given to the Palestinians over the past 22 years, and which have amounted to 21 billion US dollars in the form of development aid from 1993 to 2013, according to the World Bank... Hotovely’s article misleads world public opinion, turns the facts upside down, incites, and blackens the image of the Palestinian leadership and Palestinian fighters, while describing them as ‘terrorists,’ although they, unlike the Israelis, are nothing of the kind. If we consider each point [of the article] that appears in the American magazine separately, we will notice the following things: [...] Thirdly, the Palestinian fighters, whether Martyrs or prisoners in the Israeli occupation state’s prisons, are freedom fighters, and the PA and PLO carry the responsibility for them. They are not terrorists, but pioneers of the struggle for national liberation, and the international law guarantees their right to use all means of struggle in order to liberate the Palestinian homeland from the murderous germ of the Israeli occupation.”

Note: Director of Voice of the Prisoners Radio Muhammad Tareq Izz A-Din says that the prisoners carried out heroic acts during the Intifada and killed hundreds of Israeli soldiers, and at the time everyone applauded them but today no one remembers them.


Director of Voice of the Prisoners Radio Muhammad Tareq Izz A-Din: “Some people do not know who Lina Al-Jarbouni is, after she spent 15 years in prison. They do not know who Karim Younes and Maher Younes are. They do not know who Thabet Mardawi, commander of the battle arena in Jenin, Anas Jaradat, who was sentenced to 34 life sentences, and Ibrahim Hamed are. These heroes are the symbols of the homeland. They hurt the occupation and a tremendous uproar erupted because of them at the time of the invasion of the West Bank (i.e., a large Israeli military operation in April 2002 in response to the many suicide bombings during PA terror campaign - the second Intifada, 2000-2005), great names that make us tremble with awe.”

Headline: “[PA] Ministry of Health: Melhem is a Martyr and does not need anyone’s approval”
     “The PA Ministry of Health emphasized that it only documents the names of Martyrs (Shahids) who are within its jurisdiction and responsibility i.e., the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and in the Gaza Strip. The ministry added in a press release today, Saturday [Jan. 9, 2016], that the omission of Nashat Melhem from its lists does not mean the title [of Martyr] has been taken away from him. On the contrary, he [Melhem] is one of the dearest Martyrs, and his name is engraved with his pure blood, which watered the ground of our free land.
The ministry noted that the omission of Martyr Melhem’s name arises from the fact that the Ministry [of Health] is responsible for counting the ill, the types of illnesses, the injured, and the Martyrs within its area of jurisdiction, and that the omission of Melhem from the list under no circumstances means that Nashat is not a Martyr. On the contrary, he is like every Palestinian Martyr from everywhere in the land... ”

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.

In contrast to Zaki’s statement, Israel did not suffer any casualties –Ed.)… The Fatah Central Committee member added: ‘Despite the deceptive peace process, the [Israeli] prisons are filled with Fatah members, and the graves are also overflowing with them.’ In addition, he emphasized that history will bear witness that most young people who walked the path of light to Heaven are Fatah members, [who have done it] without being instructed to do so by the leadership. He stated: ‘We now concur that the Intifada will soon become a civil rebellion, and that we should regulate our internal situation and restore the appreciation and veneration of the PLO which almost disappeared in the absence of its departments and plans.”

Member of Fatah Central Committee, Abbas Zaki:
“This is a year of challenge. We must challenge [the occupation] without fear... or by the sacrifices being made now by our young people, with rocks and knives, through which Palestinians have once again imposed a new parameter in the equation of the struggle… We are now witnessing a phenomenon called peaceful popular resistance. How? These young people, youth, believed in Allah and Allah loved them and took them to Him, but their funerals are greater than those of the leaders and the sympathy for them is great.”

My heart is unable to see the occupation destroy, kill, and desecrate the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore, I have resolved to sacrifice my life for Allah, because if we, the young, do not carry out Jihad for Allah, who will? I hope that you will forgive me and that you will be pleased with me.
This is Jihad – victory or Martyrdom
We must always remember the Martyrs, and remember that their pure blood is a trust hung around our necks, and that nobody but us will carry this trust."

Official PA TV reporter: “Every Martyr (Shahid) has a name that was bestowed upon him, especially Baha, who shone (i.e., baha is ‘radiance’ in Arabic) in his life, and continued to shine after his death… The bullet kills the body, not the idea, and that is why Baha will remain present, thanks to his special will (this refers to the “10 commandments for the Martyr” Alyan wrote and posted on his Facebook page 10 months before he died, which Fatah tweeted after his death. –Ed.), distinguishing him from the rest of the Martyrs, and with it he ascended [to Heaven], so that it serves as a will for all Martyrs that will follow.”
Terrorist Baha Alyan’s father: “He did not do it out of hate, but in order to spare human lives. He died so that others will live. I wrote on my [Facebook] page: ‘One flower is picked, or dies, so that thousands of flowers can live.

Text under video: "The Fatah movement's message, from the mouth of Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen, in response to the US and [John] Kerry's standpoints. This is during the funeral of Martyr (Shahid) Ibrahim Daoud, Fatah member in Deir Ghasana (i.e., a village north-west of Ramallah)."
Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen in video: "Our national unity (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas) is the basis for dealing with the criminal plots being carried out by that racist criminal Zionist entity's government, and with the blind support it receives from the American regime, which insists on remaining the leader of imperialism and international terror, while describing the Palestinian people's struggle for liberty and independence as terror. This, while granting the occupier, that Nazi criminal, a certificate that its crimes against the Palestinian people are self-defense. However, I say to this Nazi occupier, and to the leader of terror, the US: 'We do not expect a certificate of good behavior from you, but rather Shahada (play on words: In Arabic Shahada means both “Martyrdom” - death for Allah - and “certificate” –Ed.) that we receive from Allah, who chooses Martyrs from among us, who are more honorable than all of us.'"

He emphasized that the street must be given priority, and that [we] should not be entrenched behind controversial issues or find excuses for not participating in direct confrontation with the occupier.

The Martyr’s uncle responded to the ‎events: ‘Ibrahim watered the soil of ‎Hebron with his blood, and he is a Martyr ‎who sacrificed himself for Jerusalem and ‎the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

     ‎“Apparently, the Israeli occupation will ‎continue to act against everything ‎Palestinian, and will always show great ‎fervor, like a vampire in its violence and ‎hatred, to wipe out the Palestinian ‎people.

Everyone is in danger of bleeding ‎till his soul ascends to Heaven and a ‎knife is thrown by his side. In the ‎shadow of this, the Palestinian sport has ‎proven once again that it is one of the ‎most important factors in national unity for ‎the realization of important meanings ‎such as social cohesion. My dear reader, ‎imagine a game for first place in the ‎‎[football] league, and that this game is the ‎‎‘Clasico,’ which is usually very ‎competitive. How could you imagine that ‎all these factors and meanings could ‎become nothing, and even turn into calls ‎from one side of the audience to the other, ‎and sometimes the audiences of both ‎teams call in one voice for Palestine, its ‎capital, and its Martyrs’ blood, so that ‎victory becomes unimportant. That is what ‎happened in the game between the ‎‎[Shabab] Al-Khalil and Shabab Al-‎Dhahiriya [teams]…‎ In this game, we felt the absence of a fan ‎who was always present at the ‘Clasico’ ‎and participated in all the events for the ‎devout fans. However the occupation ‎caused his absence, murdering him with ‎gunfire in Jerusalem, and his pure body is ‎still being held by them. He who was the ‎most active devout fan of the Al-Khalil ‎team – Martyr Basel Sidr.”‎

The government listened to a report by Hebron district Governor Kamel Hami about the settler attack against the district and the violations being perpetrated by the occupation forces and gangs of settlers. He expressed appreciation of the fact that the president [Abbas] and prime minister [Hamdallah] are making sure they receive all of the Martyrs’ bodies [from Israel] and bring them to burial with state funerals befitting them and their sacrifices… The government emphasized that even though 98 years have passed since the ominous Balfour Declaration, our people is still paying a heavy price with its land, its children’s blood, and its daily suffering, and the international community still stands by helplessly in the face of the historic injustice which has caused many massacres and crimes carried out by the Zionist terror gangs, which has led to our people being uprooted from their homeland.”

On Oct. 3, 2015, Palestinian terrorist Muhannad Halabi, 19, attacked Israeli citizen Aharon Bennet, 21, and his family, who were on their way back from prayer at the Western Wall through the Old City of Jerusalem. The terrorist killed Aharon and Israeli citizen Nehemia Lavi, who came to the family's aid, and injured Aharon's wife and 2-year-old son. Following the attack, the terrorist was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post on Facebook, the terrorist justified his killings, stating that the attack was a response to Israel's actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This echoes PA incitement and 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."

When Palestine is liberated, Allah willing, he will have at least an institution named after him, and a statue [made] of him...

Headline: "The occupation executed student Dania Arshid in Hebron and settlers invaded the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]"
      "Yesterday [Oct. 25, 2015] student Dania Arshid, 17, died as a Martyr (Shahid) next to the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., Cave of the Patriarchs) after occupation soldiers, gathered near the doors of the mosque, shot at her during another [Israeli] crime of execution.
Local sources noted that the occupation forces stopped the girl, who was a student, when she went through the military checkpoint near the main gate of the Ibrahimi Mosque, and asked her to take a knife out of her bag. The girl could do nothing but refuse as she didn't have any sharp object in her bag, which caused the soldiers to shoot her on the spot."

Headline: “Baha Alyan – Martyr and intellectual”
     “Baha Alyan, 22, from the village of Jabel Mukaber, stood out among the young people of Jerusalem as an intellectual and a person with initiative, full of energy and good looking, until he was executed by the occupation on the 13th of this October [2015]. He who surrounded the walls of Jerusalem and its streets with thousands of readers in March 2014 (i.e., human chain of Palestinian readers, surrounding the walls of Jerusalem which Alyan helped organize), died as a Martyr a year later. On March 3, 2015, Baha wrote: ‘On the same day I met 10,000 intellectual Palestinians.’ … Baha wrote his ten commandments, the most prominent of which were that no faction should adopt him (i.e., claim he was connected to them), that no one should mourn his death as a Martyr, and that he should not be seen as a number. He commanded love between the people, and not to exhaust his family with questions, as his death as a Martyr was for the homeland. (i.e., reference to post on Facebook written by the terrorist before his attack, see below) Since the bullet kills the body and not the soul, the young men and women of Jerusalem hurried to call to organize a chain of readers every year to honor Baha’s soul. This is because before his death as a Martyr, he sowed the importance of reading and a love of it, and of protecting the homeland with minds, in the minds of the [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem.”

PA daily op-ed praises murderer of 3 as "outstanding" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 22, 2015
Headline: “That Bahaa”
Op-ed by Samaa Hassan, appeared on “The morning tweet” - a daily column with changing authors
     “No one can imagine the feelings of a mother who lost her child, who died as a Martyr (Shahid) on the soil of the homeland, when the message reaches her, still in her home, before she has finished doing his bed, still warm, and before she has decided what she is going to prepare for his supper… Because I am a mother, like the rest of the mothers, I imagined her feelings, and asked her to be patient and to show resilience, but I have never imagined the feelings of the father, and my mother used to say: A man’s tear is precious, because men do not express their emotions… I saw the photo of the father, Muhammad Aliyan , standing next to a huge sign with the ten commandments [for the Martyr] that Martyr Baha [Aliyan] left behind. I saw in his eyes the same look that the bereaved mother had. There was the grief over the loss, glistening in his eyes and extinguishing, but I knew that he didn’t want to let it out, and would do so once alone. Baha Aliyan, the accomplished youth who sacrificed himself to start a revolution, was not a failed or ignorant young man. He was accomplished, educated and a dreamer. Therefore, the Israeli occupiers were surprised that someone like him carried out a stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack) which cost him his life, and they do not know that he has done it in order to leave a clear, deep message for those he left behind, that the homeland only accepts the outstanding ones.”

We will praise our prisoners, knights of challenge and resolve in the occupation’s prisons, who pave an additional path to freedom, despite the prison bars and guards.”

Text in post: "For a long time the Israeli enemy officials have been boasting about the strength of their army, and they have described it as an 'invincible army,' which has become the fourth strongest army in the world.  Yesterday [Oct. 18, 2015], we saw the exact truth of this army: A [well-] armed army which was beaten by Martyr Muhannad Al-Okabi (i.e., terrorist who shot and killed 1 and wounded 11), and before him Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who stabbed and killed 2 and wounded 2), even though he was defenseless, and was not armed with anything but his right to his homeland and his Palestinian will - the same will which the great armies of the world have not been and will not be able to defeat or harm.
How many messages of sacrifice are showing in this scene? Armed soldiers throwing down their weapons out of fear of Muhannad's knife, others seeking a wall or fence out of fear of you, hero that you are. We loved you, Muhannad. We loved you, while you sowed life for all Palestinians."
