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.”

"If you were told that there is an American school in the heart of Jerusalem that in its curriculum describes the Palestinian organizations as terrorist, that the school administration accompanies the students to participation in the 'Jewish holiday of Sukkot,' and that at this school there are almost 1,000 male and female students from Jerusalem, and it was established more than 25 years ago and is located in Beit Hanina, in northern Jerusalem), would you believe that?

In the history book taught at the school, under the headline Terrorism Around the World, the following paragraph appears (the following quotes are transcribed from the photograph of the book itself -Ed.): ‘The problem of modern international terrorism first came to world attention in a shocking way during the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich, Germany (then West Germany). Members of a Palestinian terrorist group killed two Israeli athletes and took nine others hostage, later killing them. Palestinian terrorists also used airplane hijackings and suicide bombers. Since then, few regions of the world have been spared from terrorist attacks.'

Afterwards, this paragraph completes [the text]: 'The Middle East: Many terrorist organizations have roots in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over land in the Middle East. Groups such as the Palestine Islamic Jihad, Hamas, and Hizballah have sought to prevent a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians. They want a homeland for the Palestinians on their own terms, deny Israel's right to exist, and seek Israel’s destruction. In a continual cycle of violence, the Israelis retaliate after most terrorist attacks, and the terrorists strike again.'

They are pioneers of self-sacrifice who do not differentiate between 'I' and 'we.' They have risen to the highest levels of integration with the expectations, desires, and goals of the people. Their giving has no boundaries. No comparison can be made between Martyrdom (Shahada, death for Allah) and units of measurement, as self-sacrifice is greater than all the assessments and descriptions…

Along the coast, on the sea of Acre (i.e., the Mediterranean Sea), the graves of the three Martyrs have remained witnesses to the crime of the British Mandate that was lenient and allowed the bringing in of tens of thousands of Jewish migrants to Palestine after [then British Foreign Secretary Arthur] Balfour published his ominous promise (i.e., the Balfour Declaration), in which he committed to the establishment of a national homeland for the Jews on the land of Palestine while exploiting its being under the mandate after the collapse of the Turkish Empire in World War I, even though the ominous promise was published two full years before the end of the war (sic ., the Balfour Declaration was published on Nov. 2, 1917, while World War I ended on Nov. 11, 1918).”

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.

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that “His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

Fatah added: ‘It is already clear that IS, which caused the destruction of the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp and the uprooting of hundreds of thousands from it, is currently turning its barbarity and crimes against the Martyr leaders of the [Palestinian] National Liberation Movement (i.e., Fatah) and against its fighters. In this way it is proving that it is a partner to the absolute hostility together with the racist occupation Zionist enterprise, in order to destroy every Palestinian national remnant and to implement the plot whose goal is to cause the Palestinians to emigrate for the second and third time, far from the borders of their eternal homeland of Palestine.’
Fatah emphasized: ‘The names of the fighters – leaders and soldiers alike – will continue to serve as torches, as the criminal mentality of IS will not succeed in putting out their lights, even if their gravestones are shattered and even if their pure bones are swept away, because the history of the Palestinian national movement is too magnificent to be harmed by a criminal blood-spilling terror organization, which is in fact a product of the Zionist enterprise.’”

     "The [PA] Ministry of Information stated in a notice yesterday [Sept. 28, 2016] that the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) is one of the milestones in our national and legal struggle to get rid of the occupation…
The ministry emphasized in the announcement for the 16th anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada that the fact that the popular uprising broke out in order to defend the first direction of prayer (i.e., Jerusalem), the second mosque, and the third 'sanctuary' (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), proves the depth of our people’s adherence to their Islamic and Christian holy sites, and this is the ongoing daily defense as part of which we stand with [bare] hands against the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the extremist gangs under the protection of the army of the occupation and its police…
The ministry in its statement encouraged the national, Arab and foreign media outlets operating in Palestine to mention the anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, and to note the state terror that Israel has perpetrated and still perpetrates against our people, and to bring back the stories of the Martyrs (Shahids), the injured, and the prisoners, who guard the freedom of Palestine with their blood, chains, and suffering."

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

Posted text: “The operation (i.e., terror attack, 10 murdered) was against an Israeli military checkpoint north of Ramallah. Thaer [Hammad] carried it out alone in 2002, and the analysts consider it one of the most famous Palestinian resistance operations of the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005), since Thaer, using an old rifle, succeeded in killing 11 soldiers and settlers (sic., 10 murdered: 7 soldiers and 3 civilians) and wounding 9 others (sic., 6 injured ) with 26 bullets that he fired at this checkpoint.
The surprise in this operation was that the one who carried it out did not die as a Martyr (Shahid) and was not caught, which opened the door wide to telling stories [about him], whether by the Palestinians or the Israeli occupation. While the Palestinian and Israeli sources estimated that the one who carried out this operation was old, and perhaps even took part in World War II, due to the precision in aim and the fact that he was in possession of this old rifle, Israeli security sources noted that it was possible that the one who carried out this operation was a sniper from Chechnya who succeeded in reaching the Palestinian territories in order to fight the Israeli occupation, along with other hypotheses and speculations.
In 2004, Israel announced the arrest of the one who carried out the Wadi Al-Haramiya operation, the young Thaer Hammad, 26, from his home in the village of Silwad north of Ramallah, and he was thrown into the occupation’s jails and sentenced to 11 life sentences.”

1. I instruct the factions not to take responsibility for my Martyrdom-death, for my death was for the homeland and not for you. [...]
4. Do not sow hatred in my son’s heart. Let him discover his homeland and die for his homeland, and not in order to avenge my death.
5. If they [Israel] wish to demolish my home, let them do so, since the stone is not more precious than the soul created by my God.
6. Do not grieve over my Martyrdom-death, grieve over what will happen to you after I am gone. [...]
10. I will see you in Paradise.”

PA MP: Quartet “adopted the Israeli narrative” when it described “Palestinian resistance as terror” in report

Headline: “Barghouti: Our people and its national movement are in need of the formation of a new national plan”
     “[Palestinian Member of Parliament and] Secretary-General of the Palestinian National Initiative Movement Dr. Mustafa Barghouti said… in a video conference from his residence in Gaza during the forum held by the Palestinian Center for Policy Research and Strategic Studies – Masarat at its headquarters in Ramallah… that ‘The Israeli policy seeks to both spread and establish the Israeli narrative, even among friends of the Palestinian people. The most obvious example of this is what appeared in the Quartet report (i.e., Middle East Quartet: US, EU, Russia, UN), which completely adopted the Israeli narrative, not only by making a comparison between the sides, but what is worse – by placing the responsibility for the occupation on us and describing the Palestinian resistance as terror.’”

Quartet report, July 1, 2016 – A report in which the Quartet (US, EU, Russia, and UN) reiterated its position that “a negotiated two-state outcome is the only way to achieve an enduring peace that meets Israeli security needs and Palestinian aspirations for statehood and sovereignty, ends the occupation that began in 1967, and resolves all permanent status issues.” The Quartet expressed its concern "that continuing on the current course will make this prospect increasingly remote," and listed – in this order - the three "trends" it believes are causing the failure of the peace process:
1. Palestinian violence, terror attacks against Israeli civilians, and incitement to violence
2. Israeli settlement and denial of Palestinian development
3. Hamas arms build-up and military activity, the PA’s lack of control of the Gaza Strip, and the humanitarian crisis in the Gaza Strip

Official PA TV newsreader: "Director of the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake said that the occupation authorities have decided to stop [broadcasts of] Ma’an TV within the prisons. He explained that the occupation justified this decision, claiming the channel engages in incitement (i.e., as exposed by PMW). Chairman of the Prisoners' Club Qadura Fares said that stopping the channel's broadcasts arises from opposition to the continued broadcasts of the program for prisoners presented by our colleague Samer Taym on PA TV... Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation condemned this step that comes after PA TV broadcasts were stopped within the prisons, and said that it will continue to transmit the prisoners' message in every way."

Headline: “The assassination of Muhammad Al-Faqih, who carried out the Otniel operation, during a military operation against a home in Surif”
     “The occupation forces assassinated Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Jabara Al-Faqih, 29, early yesterday morning [July 27, 2016] in a lengthy military operation carried out against him in one of the homes in the village of Surif, northwest of Hebron…
A short time before he carried out the Otniel operation (i.e., terror attack, 1 murdered) on the first of this month [July 2016] in which Michael Mark was killed - one of the settler leaders in the settlement of Otniel... and an additional three were injured, he [Al-Faqih] worked for a telephone company and lived in Hebron…
The Popular Front [for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)] praised the heroic battle staged by the ‘brave hero Muhammad Al-Faqih, which went on for many hours and led to the injury of a number of occupation soldiers, and in the end to his death as a Martyr,’ and sent its sincere condolences to the masses of our people.
The front emphasized that Martyr Al-Faqih belongs to the generation of resistance that refuses to surrender and accept the reality that the occupation imposes in the field through its steps, its terror, and its policy of home demolition and massacres in the shadow of international and Western silence.
The front concluded its statement by saying that ‘The resistance of our people continues, and we are in the midst of an unlimited confrontation. We will not stop with the deaths as Martyrs of the heroic resistance fighters Mutaz Hijazi, Mutaz Washaha, Muhammad Al-Faqih, and all the heroes of our people, as they will continue to be torches lighting the path of the return, freedom, and state for us.”

     “[Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and] Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein said: ‘We preach for peace, and this peace will only be achieved when the occupation leaves our land.’ He held Israel fully responsible for the situation in Palestine. This was said during his meeting with a delegation from the committees of the national union of the non-government institutions in the northern districts (i.e., the West Bank), who made a solidarity visit with Abu Al-Einein on behalf of the union’s institutions. This was following the occupation’s steps against him and the incessant incitement campaign being carried out by Tel Aviv in response to his positions (that Palestinians should cut off the heads of every Israeli they meet –Ed.) that support the struggle of our occupied people…
Abu Al-Einein condemned the statements that incite against our people, being made by leaders of the occupation of all ranks – members of the occupation government, rabbis, and respected figures alike – in a call to murder our people, to rape our women, and to allow [the spilling of] our blood. He called on the international community to pay attention to these statements and to take revenge on those making them.
Abu Al-Einein added: ‘It is an honor for us to visit the families of the Martyrs (Shahids), the wounded, and the prisoners.’ He emphasized that the response of the Palestinian people is much less than the extent of the incitement (in words and in actions) [parentheses in source] of the occupation and its extreme right-wing government…

Life imprisonment is a sentence of imprisonment for life, which according to the occupation’s definition is 99 years.

The family of Martyr Muhammad chose the most beautiful picture that could have been placed on the print of the cake that was prepared for the celebrations of the Martyr’s birthday, a picture of the courage that the Martyr showed when he carried out a quality operation (i.e., terror attack) at the Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem on Oct. 12 (sic., the attack was on Oct. 10) last year [2015], which is to say at the start of the ongoing popular uprising (Palestinian euphemism for several months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis 2015 - 2016 -Ed.). Maybe if Martyr Muhammad had the right to choose a picture of his, he would have chosen this indescribable beauty, he would have chosen what others would not have chosen on their birthdays, he would have chosen that his birthday be a moment of new birth, a moment of heroism accompanied by death as Martyrs, a moment of existence and not of absence.”

Muhammad Alyan, father of terrorist murderer Baha Alyan: “The very fact that the father of Martyr (Shahid) Alaa Abu Jamal (terrorist, murdered 1 –Ed.) signed such a guarantee (to hold a small funeral with no incitement –Ed.) is a type of discrimination, and means that the occupation police are afraid that all the young people of Jabel Mukaber (i.e., neighborhood in south-east Jerusalem) will throng to the cemetery, as Alaa Abu Jamal is a heroic Martyr and [everyone says:] ‘It cannot be that I will stay at home while he is being buried, even if I am old.’ Alaa is considered a symbol of the struggle and a symbol of the Martyrs and his operation (i.e., terror attack) was a heroic operation, and everyone from Jabel Mukaber dreams to see that Martyr.”

I screamed: ‘Why? What did I do?’ Nobody answered me
It just said on our door: ‘The Zionists were here’ ...
Afterwards, someone came that I already saw . He looked like one of them and was walking in circles around me.
I was so angry I grabbed a stone and threw it, and I am not strong
They caught me, hit me, and told me I will stand trial for the attack
They arrested me and accused me of being a criminal and a terrorist… "

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.

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.”

The ministry stated that the anniversary of the death as a Martyr of the initiator of the Palestinian revolution, leader Khalil Al-Wazir ‘Abu Jihad,’ the first bullet and the first stone, is a chance to prosecute the occupation in the international forums for the ethnic cleansing crimes it has perpetrated and continues to perpetrate against our people, leaders, and country.
The ministry added: ‘The crimes enveloping the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp (in Damascus –Ed.), where the body of leader Al-Wazir lies, prove that the occupation and the dark forces (i.e., ISIS and other terror organizations that took over parts of the refugee camp) join hands in order to harm our people everywhere and at all times. This obligates the free world to intervene in order to assist our people and implement the decisions of international institutions, particularly those that guarantee the right of return and compensation.’

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.

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.”

"Yesterday was the 42nd anniversary of the Al-Khalisa operation (i.e., Kiryat Shmona massacre on April 11, 1974, 18 killed ), in which three self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) infiltrated a building being used by an Israeli military Nachal unit in the Kiryat Shmona settlement which is located on the lands of the village of Al-Khalisa.

The self-sacrificing fighters held a number of Israelis [hostage] and demanded the release of 100 Arab prisoners from the Israeli prisons. However, the Israeli army broke into the building and the three self-sacrificing fighters died as Martyrs (Shahids); 19 were killed (sic., 18 were killed –Ed.), and an additional 16 of the attacking Israeli soldiers were injured.

The heroes [of the operation] were the Martyrs Munir Mughrabi 'Abu Shaker', a Palestinian born in 1954, Ahmad Mahmoud 'Abu Shaker', a Syrian born in Halab in 1954, and Yassin Al-Hourani 'Abu Hadi', who was born in southern Iraq in 1954.

On April 11, 1974, a squad of fighters of the Popular Front – General Command (i.e., the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, PFLP – GC) infiltrated the Kiryat Shmona colony in northern Palestine (i.e., Israel), took over a school and a building of 15 apartments and held a number of Israeli hostages after a battle with an Israeli force.

The self-sacrificing fighters demanded the release of 100 self-sacrificing fighter prisoners who had been imprisoned in the Israeli occupation prisons since 1966 according to the length of their imprisonment, including the Japanese self-sacrificing fighter Kozo Okamoto, who was sentenced to life for participating in the Lod airport operation in 1972 (i.e., terror attack, 24 killed).

This is not resistance, not the resistance that we want. We want resistance that would hurt the occupation and demand of it a [heavy] price.

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.

Mordechai Zarankin survived the attack. Israeli soldiers who arrived at the scene killed all three terrorists, but in the exchange of fire 21-year-old soldier Danny Senesh was also murdered.
Op-ed in official PA daily criticizes parents expressing joy over their sons’ Martyrdom

     “Two days ago, I watched an episode of the [official PA TV] program Giants of Endurance, which is dedicated to Palestinian prisoners, on the Palestinian TV [channel]. The episode featured the mother of the Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Shabat , the first prisoner of the Intifada from Ramallah…
In answer to the question, she said: ‘My son is very precious. It is true that Palestine is precious, but my son is precious too. He is part of my heart and there is no way I can forget that.’ With these honest and courageous words, prisoner Shabat’s courageous mother returned to the true language, instead of the memorized slogans which reflect nothing of our reality, or those deceitful sights broadcast by a number of satellite channels and [spread] by several factions and associations in our reality , in which we often appear as though we were from another world - an unreal world in which we say things we do not mean and act unnaturally, hand out candies and receive the news of our sons’ capture or their death as Martyrs with an expression of superficial joy, proudly giving the impression that we are happy about what happened.”

Al-Aquds and Birzeit University students form "chain of readers" in terrorist’s honor 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Feb. 21, 2016
     "At 10:00 a.m. reading and Martyr time, more than 500 students of Birzeit University gathered at the entrance to the humanities faculty and waited for Muhammad Alyan, father of Martyr Baha Alyan (i.e., terrorist who participated in attack where 3 Israelis were murdered) the first who had the idea of a chain of readers, and the family of Martyr Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist who murdered 2), who all came in order to commemorate the idea of a chain of readers... A few minutes after 10:00 am, the students arranged themselves in a row on the long sidewalk that connects the humanities faculty and the university's cafeteria. Ninety percent of them were women, and every participant held a book. Martyr Baha Alyan's father... said: 'The significance of this chain is that we are a people that loves life, which does not like to stab, but is forced to do so in order to live. Commemorating the Martyrs must be done by following their path of culture, and by continuing to hold cultural activities.' ... The coordinator of the reading campaign, Muhammad Jaradat said: 'The chain [of readers] at Birzeit today [Feb. 21, 2016] is a continuation of what Martyr Baha Alyan began at Damascus Gate [in Jerusalem], and its purpose is to strengthen the culture and express solidarity with the Martyrs' families... Hundreds of students at Hebron University participated in a chain of readers on Feb. 1, [2016]. Al-Quds University followed in its footsteps with an additional chain [of readers] on Feb. 13, and today Birzeit [University] fulfills its role in the advancement of reading and culture."

Op-ed in official PA daily praises terror attacks: “They constitute a daily nightmare for the Israeli state”

Headline: "There is no escaping the Palestinian truth"
Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the official PA daily, and member of the Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza
     "The Palestinian people, [whose population] has exceeded 12 million, expresses its living presence today under the banner of the unity of the cause and the people, and has succeeded in bringing about the outbreak of the escalating popular uprising that is in its fifth month, through new generations nourished in their uprising by the details of reality, as they were all born in the shadow of the occupation… this uprising faces a widespread campaign of deception and a growing campaign of lies today. The first lie that [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu spread and led his government to believe is that the current events in the region give nothing to the Palestinians, and they have no choice but to remain silent, but the uprising still continues, proving that the Zionist-Israeli gamble is a futile gamble. For this reason, we see that the Zionist media and press describe the new Palestinian generations that are involved in this uprising as a lost generation, even though they constitute a daily nightmare for the Israeli state, and all the exaggerated means of terror and illegal means employed by Israel have not succeeded in quelling their living memories and extinguishing their renewed fire."

     Headline: “Martyr Ahmad Abu Al-Rub…”
This is the third in a series of articles published on Feb. 13, and Feb. 15, 2016
“After the Friday prayer, Ahmad walked to the cemetery to look for the grave of his Martyr (Shahid) friend Ahmad [Awwad Abu Al-Rub], sat by the grave, recited the [Quranic Sura of] Al-Fatiha, and then left.
This is what happened every Friday since the boy Ahmad Awwad Abu Al-Rub died as a Martyr, after being shot by the occupation at the Al-Jalameh checkpoint, when Ahmad Abu Najah Abu Al-Rub’s heart was bound to his friend, and kept anything that reminded him of him [Ahmad Awwad].
Once, Ahmad returned home and asked one of his sisters if it was possible to grow flowers in special soil in order to lay them on his friend’s grave. The flowers were planted, but when they started to blossom, Ahmad was no longer there to take them to the Martyr’s grave, because he had already joined the Martyrs’ procession…
Since the outbreak of the events of the popular resistance at the beginning of last October [2015] (i.e., euphemism for wave of Palestinian terror attacks, September 2015-April 2016), most of Ahmad’s attention was dedicated to following news channels. Ahmad’s mother told Al-Hayat Al-Jadida that her son ‘became indignant at the events and attacks against the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] and the death of the young and the girls as Martyrs.’
Indeed the separation is hard, and death is hard, as mother of Martyr [Ahmad Najah Abu Al-Rub] told us, but she corrected [herself] and said: ‘Praise Allah, he wanted to die as a Martyr and has obtained Martyrdom (Shahada)’”

My mother and father, my soul is attached to them
Do not cry, my mother
I hope I will please you, my father’
These are the words that the Martyr (Shahid) wrote before he went to carry out a ramming operation at the western entrance to Silwad…”
Abed Hamed’s mother: “He called me personally from Ramallah and told me: ‘I want you to marry me [off].’ I told him: ‘Allah willing.’ He told me: ‘Today.’ As he was about to hang up he said: ‘I am serious.’ When he said [that], I told him: ‘On Friday.’ I would like to call him again and tell him: 'I will marry you [off] on Friday.’ And tell him: ‘Why did you not tell me [to do it] quickly? Praise Allah.’”
Female relative: “Praise Allah. What a groom, what a groom! A groom of Paradise.”
Abed Hamed’s mother: “Allah willing he will go to Paradise…”
Female relative 2: “May Allah be pleased with him and have mercy on him. Allah willing, he will be received as a Martyr by the Master of the Universe. Knock on wood, glowing face, knock on wood, wonderful. Yesterday, we were amazed by the news, but praise Allah we were happy about his Martyrdom (Shahada) as he is a groom, what a groom.”

Fatah-run TV reports on human chain of readers in Jerusalem, exhibition commemorating terrorist who killed 3 
Source: Fatah-run Awdah TV, Feb. 19, 2016
Fatah-run Awdah TV program Homeland Morning reported on so-called “human chain of readers” in Jerusalem in the name of terrorist Baha Alyan, who murdered 3
Reporter for Fatah-run Awdah TV: “Baha Alyan began with the longest chain of readers surrounding the walls of Jerusalem. After he died as a Martyr, people began to focus on the importance of supporting Jerusalem and the Jerusalem residents’ resolve through this idea, and the longest chain of readers surrounding the walls of Jerusalem was organized in loyalty to Jerusalem and the soul, [Baha Alyan], who had the idea.”

PMW note: After the Al-Quds University had held a chain of readers, the “Homeland Story” exhibit was opened, a product of the cooperation between the Fatah Shabiba student movement and the student union.  The Awdah TV report shows a sign for the exhibition with a picture of Yasser Arafat in the center and the Jerusalem “Martyrs” at his side: Baha Alyan, Fadi Alloun, Muhannad Halabi, and Bayan Ayman Al-Esseili. Terrorists who have killed a total of 5 Israelis in their 4 attacks.

Reporter: “A group of young Palestinians organized the activity during which children planted seedlings and flowers, one of which bore the name of Martyr Baha Alyan. The message of all Palestinians – if the occupation will not return its splendor (play on words: the Arab word for splendor is baha, the same as Baha Alyan’s name –Ed.) to Jerusalem and the Martyrs to their homeland, we will bring them back through the efforts of this homeland’s people.”
