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.”

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.”  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.

The security guard shot and wounded the 14-year-old stabber and the second terrorist was held by passengers until security forces arrived.

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.”

     “[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.”

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.”

Lod Airport attack - on May 30, 1972, Takeshi Okudaira, Yasuyuki Yasuda and Kozo Okamoto - members of the Japanese Red Army who had been recruited by the Palestinian terror organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) - carried out a terror attack at Israel's Lod (Tel Aviv) airport. Throwing hand grenades and shooting, the terrorists killed 24 (8 Israelis and 16 foreign tourists), and wounded over 70. Okudaira and Yasuda were killed during the attack, while Okamoto was arrested and sentenced to 3 life sentences, but was released in the Jibril Agreement in May 1985, after only 13 years of imprisonment, when Israel freed 1,150 Palestinian prisoners, including terrorist murderers, in exchange for three Israeli soldiers who had been taken hostage by the PFLP terrorist organization.

The determination, willpower, and willingness to die for a dignified life are present among the youth who carried a knife after the disappearance of the Arab leadership, and even the Palestinian. They performed a miracle by imposing a curfew within Israel with knives and rocks. Blessings to the mothers and fathers who gave birth to those who are marching on the path of light, without anyone having demanded it of them... [ Zaki to the audience] I bless you sincerely with all my heart, in the name of the Fatah Central Committee and in the name of the leadership, which has decided – after giving everything for peace – to define the options against this Zionist enemy, and has ended the security coordination.

       “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.”

This is not enough for them, they float in the skies of Qabatiya and commemorate the history of the uprising and the struggle, and the history of the victory, and there are no words to describe how proud we are.
Qabatiya – is there anyone who does not love you? Honor and love to you. You are too great to be just letters on paper. You are the mother of the heroes, the heroes who outlined hope with their eyelashes and did not rest for a moment, and you blessed their hands.
Qabatiya, life and flowers to you, O mother of the rebels, just as you said, O my father:
I painted the palm of my hand with its henna
I painted my eyelashes blue from its olives
And thus I will die on the outskirts of its glory
So I will turn into a story in it and it will turn into [a part of] me
Qabatiya
We are the people of victory
Long live Qabatiya and its residents
Qabatiya will win through its residents"

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."

One of the most well-known Palestinian fighters... On March 11, 1978, Dalal and her group succeeded in reaching Tel Aviv and taking over an Israeli bus that was transporting soldiers (sic., the passengers were all civilians).

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who killed 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."

Headline: “A mourning vigil at An-Najah for the soul of Martyr Omar Al-Na’if”
      “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.

Palestinian news agency reports on human reading chain in Gaza in honor of terrorist who killed 3 
Source: Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), Feb. 23, 2016
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.”

Zarankin’s husband Mordechai had made a rope out of sheets for them to escape out the window and blockaded the door, but one of the terrorists was waiting below and shot Irena Zarankin and the children as they climbed down. 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.

     “Today, Saturday [Feb. 13, 2016], the students of Al-Quds University formed a human reading chain called ‘Glory of the Martyrs’ on the Abu Dis campus as a continuation of Martyr (Shahid) Baha Alyan’s (i.e., terrorist who murdered 3) idea to form ‘the longest reading chain around the walls of Jerusalem,’ which he did a number of years ago in Jerusalem.  More than 2,500 male and female students participated in the chain, and it included the reading of books and letter writing by the participants, all of this in the presence of the Martyr’s father, the lawyer Muhammad Alyan. At the end of the activity, which lasted two hours, the participants wrote letters that included sentences and excerpts to the souls of Martyr Baha Alyan and the other Martyrs and their relatives, along with their names, student numbers, and the book they read during the activity. Participants in the activity wore shirts with a picture of Martyr Baha Alyan.”

He added that Fatah was the first to wage a mass confrontation during the current popular uprising on Sept. 29 [2015], and that it has led all the confrontations throughout the homeland, and that most of the Martyrs (Shahids) and injured came from within it.

“Despite the ‘hard blow’ Israel gave Qabatiya by imposing a curfew on it for four days, [carrying out] arrests, demolishing homes, and revoking work permits, in what seems like an attempt to teach them a ‘lesson,’ it looks like it has failed to dampen the spirit of resistance in the town. This small town, which has 25,000 residents and is located on the hills in the north of the West Bank, is proud of a long history of struggle. Mayor Mahmoud Kmeil emphasized: ‘We have resisted all of the occupiers here,’ noting the British Mandate in Palestine, the Ottoman empire, and the Israeli occupation today. Today, he is organizing a visit of officials with the families of nine young people from Qabatiya who have died as Martyrs (Shahids) since October while attacking Israelis. The last attack was on Feb. 3 [2016], when three young people from important families in the town killed Israeli policewoman Hadar Cohen, 19, at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

     Editorial in the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
Headline: “The ethical issue”
“What the extreme Israeli right is dithering over the most at the moment is the moral issue, but it is as if it does not know anything about this issue, and is not even close to understanding any of its concepts, customs, or manners. For this reason, it sees the reception held by President Mahmoud Abbas for the families of the Martyrs (i.e., terrorists who were killed during their attacks against Israelis) whose bodies are being held by the occupation authorities as ‘being caught red handed’ (!!) [parentheses in source] and as incitement and patronage of terror and violence!! The moral issue which we are talking about is a humanitarian issue which does not pertain to one nation specifically, but rather to all of humanity… The reception that President Mahmoud Abbas held for the families of the Martyrs whose bodies are being held [by Israel] is not a response to this issue alone, but rather a fulfillment of human responsibility, before the national one. The suffering relatives of the Martyrs just want a word that will give them comfort and patience, a word that will comfort them and pat their shoulder with compassion. They want to part from their sons for the last time and give them the honor of a fitting burial in the ground of their land, the ground of their loved ones. Therefore they are knocking on all doors in order to release their sons’ bodies, and the first door is the door of the homeland, its people and its officials, in order to act together to achieve this simple human goal – the release of the bodies of the Martyrs, which are victims of the occupation and its despicable racist policies.”

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"

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.

     “When the mother learned of her son’s death as a Martyr, she let out cries of ‘joy over his death as a Martyr,’ and the family is still giving out candies and receiving guests, and emphasizing that their joy over Ihab’s death as a Martyr is greater than their joy over the wedding they all dreamed of for him. 48 hours had not passed since Ihab’s death as a Martyr when his cousin joined him... On the morning of Dec. 9, 2015, Abd Al-Rahman and his two sisters talked about Martyr Ihab, for whom consolers were still coming one after the other to his family’s home in order to ‘bless his death as a Martyr,’ and one of the things Abd Al-Rahman said was: ‘And I also hope to die as a Martyr.’ It did not take long, as the news arrived quickly and Abd’s siblings saw their brother in a report which stated that he [died as] a Martyr while carrying out a stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack) against [Israeli] soldiers in the area called Al-Dabbouya near the Ibrahimi Mosque (i.e., the Cave of the Patriarchs) in the heart of Hebron, and Abd Al-Rahman’s father reiterated: ‘Praise Allah.’”

Op-ed in PA daily responds to criticism: Terrorists are "freedom fighters," “pioneers of the struggle for national liberation” who have the right to use "all means of struggle"

Headline: “Hotovely and the baseless questions”
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily
      “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.”

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."

Hamid offered his sincere condolences and asked Allah, to let Martyr Jabarin dwell in Paradise, and bestow solace and patience upon his family.”

Q:
"Do you have any final words for our people carrying out intifada in Palestine?"
Al-Einein: "Blessings to all of our Martyrs, to the residents of Jerusalem who had the honor of igniting the first spark of this activity, to all those who followed in their footsteps in the rest of the homeland, and to the residents of the Hebron district, who have sown fear in all of this cancerous Israeli body (Many of the terrorists have come from the Hebron district -Ed.). We bow before every drop of blood that has dripped from our children and women, and bow the head before every Martyr and Martyr's mother, who carried her child in her belly and brought him up until he became a young man, and when they notified her of his death as a Martyr, she let cries of joy loose to the Heavens. Mothers like these will not be defeated, and this is our people about whom President Martyr Yasser Arafat said that it is 'a people of giants.'"

We see her in all of the Palestinian councils and the popular demonstrations... However, what the Palestinian revolution succeeded in planting in the Palestinian consciousness is that a woman can carry a rifle and carry out operations (i.e., terror attacks) against the occupation, and who does not remember the first female prisoner Fatima Barnawi or the Martyrs (Shahidas) Dalal Mughrabi, Wafa Idris, Ayyat Al-Akhras, and their like?"

Fatima Barnawi placed a bomb in a movie theater in Jerusalem in 1967 in an attempt to blow it up. The bomb failed to explode. She was sentenced to life imprisonment but was released in 1977 after serving 10 years. In 2015, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas honored Barnawi with the Military Star of Honor.

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.

Wafa Idris - The first Palestinian female suicide bomber. Belonging to Fatah, she blew herself up on Jaffa Road in central Jerusalem on Jan. 27, 2002, killing 1 and wounding over 100. As a volunteer for the Palestinian Red Crescent she was able to bypass Israeli security and enter Jerusalem in a Palestinian ambulance.

Headline: “Do not create a crisis for no reason”
     “A few impulsive people from among our people have accused the [PA] Ministry of Health of things to which it has no connection, because it did not add Martyr (Shahid) Nashat [Melhem] to the lists of the uprising’s Martyrs. This matter forced the ministry to issue a clarification, which expressed the national position regarding the way in which Martyrs are recognized… Everyone knows that the Palestinian people in the Galilee, the Triangle (i.e., a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages in northern Israel), and the Negev are an original part of our people that cannot be relinquished, but this part has its own conditions and forms of struggle. Feelings cannot be allowed to blind the zealots and push them to stumble, which harms the Ministry of Health employees… Nashat Melhem is a Palestinian Martyr, despite the opposition of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, [Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe] Ya'alon, and other [Israeli] government ministers. The logic and war crimes of Israel’s leaders are what caused Nashat to respond in kind to the racist [ethnically] cleansing Zionism.”

Nashat Melhem - 29-year-old Israeli Arab terrorist who carried out a shooting attack, killing 2 Israelis, Alon Bakal and Shimon Ruimi, and wounding 8 others, at Hasimta bar in Tel Aviv on Jan. 1, 2016.

It was the largest search operation of its kind since 1980... All the questions raised require that the Israeli government, the Israeli Security Agency and police, and the entire security establishment explicitly declare the defeat and failure, and recognize that Martyr Nashat was the hero, not the murderers from the Israeli special units. That is because he carried out the operation calmly, and left the scene peacefully, without making a fuss, in addition to the fact that he did not give the security forces a chance to pursue him or discover his hiding place… Martyr Nashat Melhem won, while they [the Israelis] were defeated, even though he died as a Martyr at the hands of the cowardly Israeli security agents.”

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.”

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.”

This movement that turned the Palestinian woman into a global symbol of the struggle and of giving, and a focus of research... Al-Agha praised the role of the Palestinian woman and her endless giving throughout the history of the Palestinian revolution, during which she proved her ability to fight and give, and she sacrificed female Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, and wounded on the altar of freedom, independence, the end of the occupation, and the establishment of an independent state with Jerusalem as its capital... Likewise, he noted that the Palestinian woman is not absent from participation in the ongoing popular uprising in the West Bank and Jerusalem, and stands at the head of the ranks of the confrontation with the occupation, which has led to the deaths of a number of female Martyrs. Thus the Palestinian woman offers another example of sacrifice, devotion, and giving for the homeland in the confrontation with the Israeli occupation and its aggression against the holy sites."

Mahmoud Al-Habbash, the Supreme Shari’ah Judge and Mahmoud Abbas’ advisor on Religious and Islamic Affairs, in Friday sermon made in presence of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “Some accuse us of incitement against others. What incitement? Are we inciting? … If by incitement they are talking about our insistence on holding on to our principles, and our respect, honor, and appreciation for those more honorable than us, the Martyrs who fall for Palestine – if that is what they call incitement – we do not deny this, and are not ashamed of it, and we do not renounce it. Indeed – we cling to our right, our land, our holy sites, our Jerusalem and our Al-Aqsa Mosque… We adhere to our right to defend ourselves.”

The Palestinian uprising of the different generations has created a large crack in the foundations of that artificial entity [Israel] because the Palestinian blood has merged with all areas of the West Bank, Afula (i.e., city in northern Israel) and other cities and with heroic Gaza, as the Palestinian knife has an important role in the slaughtering of those law breakers, and the right to [self-]defense.
