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 chorus of the Israeli right, which [Israeli] Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads, did not delay in making inciting statements against the PA and holding it responsible for the car ramming attack that took place yesterday [Jan. 8, 2017] in occupied Jerusalem, in which 4 of the occupation's soldiers were killed, and an additional 15 were injured, 3 of them seriously.
In an unscheduled meeting that was held against the background of the car ramming operation, the reduced [Israeli] Political-Security Cabinet decided to demolish the home in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in East Jerusalem of the family of the Martyr (Shahid) that carried out the operation, not to transfer his body to his family, to reject any request the family has submitted or will submit for unification with their relatives in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and to blockade Jabel Mukaber and arrest anyone who shows joy over the operation…
The truck driver, a resident of Jabel Mukaber, died as a Martyr, shot and killed by the occupation forces (sic., he was shot by a civilian), after he crashed into soldiers in the park in the settlement neighborhood of 'Armon Hanatziv,' which overlooks the Old City of Jerusalem."

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
     “The Syrian Palestinian Arab hero [former Greek Catholic Archbishop of Jerusalem] Hilarion Capucci was arrested in mid-1974 when he was caught in his car on his way back from Lebanon to Palestine with weapons and explosives. His arrest was an unusual event, and it filled the media outlet headlines on the TV and radio, and in newspapers, because he constituted a pioneering model of heroic clergy like Sheikh Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam (Islamic preacher who led a terror group, see note below –Ed.). It is true that he did not lead a revolution, but he was a partner to it to his very bones and did all that he could to aid it. The courts of the Israeli occupation authorities imposed 12 years of imprisonment on him, but the pope at the time (i.e., Paul VI) intervened and his imprisonment was shortened to 4 years. He was released in late 1977, and went into exile in Rome in 1978…
Farewell, O archbishop admired in your eternity. You go to Paradise, O archbishop of the Jihad fighters, as you merit it. Your lessons in nationalism will not be in vain, and will remain a milestone in the struggle of the Palestinian Arab people who will remain loyal to you and to your struggle, as long as there are Palestinians on the face of the earth.”

Capucci was a Syrian Christian clergyman who was born in Aleppo and became an archbishop of the Greek Catholic Church in Jerusalem in 1965. He was known for his patriotic positions opposing the occupation in Palestine, and acted in secret in order to assist the resistance. He was arrested by the occupation authorities in August 1974 while attempting to smuggle weapons to the resistance, and a military court of the occupation sentenced him to 12 years in prison. He was released after four years through the Vatican's mediation, and was expelled from Palestine in November 1978. From then until his death he lived his life in the diaspora, in Rome.
It should be noted that [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas awarded the late archbishop the Star of Jerusalem Medal in 2013 in Rome…
Capucci lived in East Jerusalem, and the religious role he received did not prevent him from participating in supporting the resistance and transferring weapons to members of the Palestinian resistance, while taking advantage of his special status. The occupation monitored Capucci and his movements. On Aug. 8, 1974, it became clear that his car that was loaded with explosives was traveling in a suspicious manner towards Jerusalem, and that Capucci himself and his aide were traveling in it. The car and those in it were transferred to the occupation's police station at the Russian Compound in Jerusalem, and weapons and explosives were found in [the car]."

     “The [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs said in its annual report, which deals with Israel’s violations and crimes against the prisoners in the occupation’s prisons, that 2016 was the year of the blow to the prisoners politically and legally, and of the delegitimization of their national struggle.
The commission said yesterday [Dec. 31, 2016] in its report that the racist occupation government still acts towards the prisoners according to its military laws and not according to international law, treats them as criminals and terrorists without legal rights, and does not recognize them as legal freedom prisoners who are protected by four Geneva Conventions.”

Former Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad: “Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., terrorist, murdered 37, 12 of them children) led a group of her comrades in quality operations, and in a quality operation she established a [Palestinian] state inside a bus.
Dalal was a woman, a sister from Fatah, and a fighter. She bore the flag from the beginning, and defended the Palestinian national project, defended the Palestinian people, resisted the occupier, and sent messages in every direction.
The most important is that the Palestinian woman is a partner in the national struggle in all the ways and means. She is the mother, wife, sister, beloved, and partner, but she is also part of the resistance and the fighter who carries a rifle. She is the prisoner, and she is the Martyrdom-seeker. If we are to talk about the sisters, we have female Martyrdom-seekers from the first Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993) and second Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005).”

     “The occupation’s court sentenced prisoner Abd Al-Aziz Mar’i from the town of Abu Dis, east of occupied Jerusalem, to a 35 year active prison term yesterday [Dec. 28, 2016].
This sentence was given after the court convicted Mar’i of aiding Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist, killed 2), who died as a Martyr when he was shot and killed by the occupation in the Old [City of] Jerusalem approximately 14 months ago.”

Abd Al-Aziz Mar’i was sentenced to 35 years for initiating, planning and convincing terrorist Muhannad Halabi to carry out his stabbing attack in which he on Oct. 3, 2015 murdered 2 Israelis by stabbing them to death and injured two others.

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."

“Supervisor of public relations and refugee camps in Hezbollah in the southern region Haj Khalil Hussein, in the presence of his aide Wael Zalzali, received a delegation from the Palestinian Liberation Front (i.e., a member of the PLO) led by the front’s political bureau member Abbas Al-Jum’a…
The participants in the meeting praised the intifada and resistance of the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Jerusalem, which are charting the map of Palestine with the blood of its Martyrs (Shahids) facing the Zionist enemy. They condemned the Arab and international silence over the arbitrary actions of the Zionist occupation forces against the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Jerusalem. The participants in the meeting called to strengthen the Palestinian national unity and to adhere to the option of resistance in all its forms (i.e., including violence) facing the Zionist enemy and its plans, which mark the Palestinian land as a target. In honor and pride they blessed the soul of the Martyr commander, resistance member Samir Kuntar (i.e., terrorist, murdered 4), on the anniversary of his death as a Martyr
Both sides emphasized the ties of struggle that connect the Palestinian Liberation Front and Hezbollah. They praised the positions of the lord of the resistance, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah.”

Posted text: "Martyr (Shahid) Fakhri Al-Omari 'Abu Muhammad' was born in Jaffa in 1936. [He was] among the first to join the Palestinian revolution. He participated in the first security session that the Fatah Movement sent to Cairo. He participated in the establishment of the Security and Surveillance force in Jordan together with Salah Khalaf 'Abu Iyad.' He was part of the leadership of the security force of the Palestinian revolution. He participated in leading of some of the special and quality operations (i.e., terror attacks), and was the head of the Black September organization’s department of operations and assassinations. He came up with the idea for the Munich operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered), and under the false name 'Talal' he was directly responsible for the squad that carried it out."

Fakhri Al-Omari – a Fatah member and a founding member of the Black September terror organization and top aide to Salah Khalaf, one of the founders of Fatah and the head of Black September. Fatah credits Al-Omari with being the one who conceived the idea of the 1972 Munich Massacre in which 11 Israeli Olympic athletes were murdered, and states that he participated in its planning. Al-Omari and Salah Khalaf were assassinated on Jan. 14, 1991 by Khalaf's bodyguard, who it is commonly assumed was recruited to do so by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.

There are international balances of power that may impose a certain thing, and we understand this well. However, there is a famous saying that I always repeat, according to which even if the balances of power will come and force the entire Arab nation to sign a document of recognition of Israel and reconciliation with it, and will even force the small children, the young men, and the young women to sign it, a generation will come that will tear up the document and say that the recognition of Israel and the reconciliation with it are a sin that the Arab nation cannot accept. I am sure of this, as our generation was not educated to accept Israel.
And this is despite there being facts and balances of power in the world that we must take into account.

This generous donation of prisoner [Issam] Al-Faroukh is from his personal salary, and the Environmental Protection Authority also gave many symbolic presents as an expression of its love for the Martyrs and their children.
The minister of education and higher education said: 'This is a new Palestinian opus written in letters of light by this genuine Palestinian family, which has sacrificed a Martyr and a prisoner, and of its own will gives gifts to our children, the students…'
Al-Atira emphasized that this is the minimum that can be given, and that it does not compare to even a part of the suffering of the Martyrs who chose the path of light for us."

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.

     Headline: "ISIS' crime against the Martyrs"
Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
"The Martyrs (Shahids) are more noble and honorable than all of us together. They are candles of the path of liberation and return and bearers of the flag of the cause and the people. 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…
The tombstones of those who wrote the most spectacular epics in the national history and wrote with their pure blood the most pure, sublime, and glorious pages on the people's golden list have been destroyed by the ISIS Takfiris (i.e., Muslims who accuse other Muslims of heresy) in the cemetery of Martyrs (Shahids) in the Al-Yarmouk refugee camp southeast of the Syrian capital of Damascus, which is still under their rule."

PA daily op-ed: 3 terrorists who killed Jews during British Mandate were Martyrs  
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 20, 2016
Excerpt of op-ed by Issa Abd Al-Hafiz
     “Acre is the city of the three Martyrs (Shahids) (i.e., terrorist murderers Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir) who the British Mandate authorities strangled on Red Tuesday, this date that remains preserved in the black history of the [British] mandate and in the Palestinian memory of previous generations.
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.’”

Karake continued: 'Israel does not recognize the application of the Geneva Conventions to the prisoners and their legal description as national freedom movement prisoners, applies racist and military laws to them, and is managing an international propaganda campaign of incitement against the prisoners in order to isolate them and keep any assistance or support away from them. Therefore, it is necessary to hurry to provide legal protection to the prisoners and to force it (i.e., Israel) to recognize them as freedom prisoners and legitimate fighters.'"

He was supposed to turn himself in today and begin a sentence of four months on charges of Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and hitting the occupation's soldiers. He was arrested in 2013 in the Bab Huta region of the Old City of Jerusalem on charges of hitting an officer and was released, but to his surprise the case was reopened in 2015 and he was sentenced to a four month active sentence, and according to the ruling of the Israeli Magistrate Court that was given roughly one month ago, the ruling was supposed to be carried out in the middle of this month [October 2016]. The occupation authorities persecuted him over the last two weeks and he was arrested and detained five times in a row, and after his last arrest he was released on condition of being distanced from East Jerusalem for one month, and before that he was given a ruling preventing him from traveling [abroad] until the end of this year, and he was forbidden from entering the Al-Aqsa Mosque for six months, after being released [from arrest] at the end of last year [2015]."

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.

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.

This song was written by the Lebanese poet Talal Haidar and sung by Fairuz, and it held a meaningful place in the souls and hearts of millions of listeners, although only a few of them know its story.
According to the story, the great romantic poet Talal Haidar would drink his morning coffee on the porch of his home overlooking a beautiful forest…
For a while, Talal noticed that three young men went into the forest every morning at the time when he drank his coffee, and came out in the evening. After several days, the young men noticed Talal’s gaze and greeted him every morning, and if they saw him in the evening, they greeted him politely, and he replied to them even while wondering [what they were doing] in silence…
He did not speak openly about the topic with anyone, until he read a newspaper article according to which three self-sacrificing fighters (Fedayeen) – an Iraqi, a Syrian, and a Palestinian – crossed the border, carried out a self-sacrifice (Fida’i) operation (i.e., terror attack, 18 murdered) inside Israel, and died in it as Martyrs (Shahids). Pictures of the three young men were shown, and Talal succeeded in recognizing their faces..."

Fatah FB post honors terrorist who shot down 3 civilians and 7 Israeli soldiers

Text on image: “Wadi Al-Haramiya sniper” (Wadi Al-Haramiya is where the terror attack occurred –Ed.)
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.”

“Sultan Abu Al-Einein: The Security Forces carried out an important role in their security campaign in the West Bank to maintain the popular peace”
     “The Al-Quds newspaper interviewed Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein…
Q. What is your assessment of the security situation in Gaza, particularly after the repeated Israeli bombing of the Gaza Strip in recent days?
A. Hamas… stops everyone who shoots rockets towards the areas under Israeli occupation. The statements of Hamas leadership member Mahmoud Al-Zahar say that Hamas is the exclusive representative of the resistance in Gaza, and that in its opinion, it is the one that decides on the timing of any conflict with the Israeli side as part of its sick narrow partisan considerations, the price of which is paid by the Palestinian people. However, no one can sell us the principles of resistance or teach them to us, because a people that relinquishes the defense of its occupied land is a people without honor… No one can claim exclusivity over the resistance, because the defense of the homeland is everyone’s obligation, and not the monopoly of any specific body. Unfortunately, Hamas boasts about the arrest of those shooting rockets from among the Palestinian organizations, and here, let me ask Hamas: Who gave you exclusivity over the resistance? Who said that only you are worthy of carrying it out? Who gave you the right to shoot at the Israelis while others are prevented from doing so? If there are secret agreements with Israel, Turkey, and Qatar, and Hamas is implementing their secret clauses, that is another matter, and it is of course serious.”

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

     “In the presence of over 3,000 people, the Abu Dis [Youth] Club held an impressive ceremony… honoring the students who sat the matriculation exams – ‘the class of Martyrs (Shahids) Muhammad Halabiyeh and Mazen Ariba’ – at the Al-Quds University amphitheater.
Abu Dis Youth Club President Ziyad Bahar gave a speech in which he congratulated the families of the students who succeeded [in the exams]. He emphasized that this is the annual ceremony held by the club in order to honor the students for their efforts and studies in the past year…
During the tribute, the chairman and members of the directorate of the club and the Fatah Movement… honored the families of Martyrs Muhammad Halabiyeh and Mazen Ariba.”

Note: The class of Martyrs Muhammad Halabiyeh and Mazen Ariba” would appear to be a name given by the Abu Dis Youth Club at the ceremony, as opposed to the official name of the student class.

Mazen Ariba – 37-year-old officer in the PA intelligence service who shot and injured an Israeli soldier and an Israeli civilian at the Hizme checkpoint on Dec. 3, 2015. Ariba was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers.

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…

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning, on the unveiling of a monument for Palestinian terrorist Abu Sukkar in Turmus Ayya, hosting Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake

Director of PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake: “On the third anniversary of the Martyrdom (Istish’had) of the great fighter Ahmad Abu Sukkar (i.e., terrorist, murdered 15), indeed, a monument to Abu Sukkar was built at the place of his birth in Turmus Ayya. This is an expression of the loyalty and love of the Palestinian people for all the prisoners, both the Martyr prisoners who died after a long struggle like fighter prisoner Abu Sukkar, as well as the prisoners living in the prisons, Abu Sukkar’s comrades, some of whom have been in the occupation’s prisons for more than 35 years, like Nael (likely Nael Salhab, terrorist serving 30 years for his part in a murder –Ed.), Karim [Younes], Maher [Younes] (murdered one –Ed.), Lina [Al-Jarbouni] (aided terror organization –Ed.), and dozens of other veteran prisoners.
This is also a response to the attempts of Israel and of theIsraeli government to define the struggle of the Palestinian people as a crime, and to charge the prisoners as terrorists and criminals. By establishing this monument we are saying in this mass ceremony that the prisoners are freedom prisoners. These are prisoners who struggled and sacrificed for the dignity and the freedom of this land. They are legitimate fighters and not criminals and terrorists. The occupation government is the mistress of terror in this region, and it is the criminal that violates the rights of our Palestinian people and uses murder and all forms of oppression against the Palestinian people.”

PLO Head of Prisoners’ Affairs: Israeli anti-terror law is “racist,” imprisoned Palestinian terrorists are “freedom fighters”

Headline: “[PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Director Issa] Karake: We submitted a legal plan to the leadership to respond to what is called the Israeli ‘terror law’”

“[PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Director Issa Karake said that the commission, in cooperation with human rights organizations, submitted a legal plan to the [Palestinian] leadership based on a petition to the International [Criminal] Court (ICC) in The Hague.
This [petition] is for the purpose of receiving a legal opinion regarding the legal status of the prisoners and detainees in the occupation’s prisons, and Israel’s responsibility towards them as an occupying state…
He said that this comes as a response to a series of racist and arbitrary laws that the government of Israel has legislated against the rights of the prisoners, the last of which is called the Israeli ‘terror law.’
[Karake noted that this law] is meant to define the national struggle of the Palestinian people as a crime, to delegitimize the Palestinian resistance to the occupation, to take the title of ‘freedom fighters’ from the prisoners, and to negate their legal status as legal fighters and prisoners protected by four Geneva conventions…
For Eid Al-Fitr (i.e., Muslim holiday marking the end of Ramadan), Karake and a delegation from the Commission [of Prisoners’ Affairs] visited…the family of prisoner Jamal Rajoub, who was given a life sentence.”

Israeli anti-terror law – ratified on June 15, 2016 - legislates significantly stiffer penalties for acts related to terror – involvement in a terror attack, aiding terrorists in carrying out an attack, public support of or identification with acts of terror, heading a terrorist organization, working for a terrorist organization, acts/business deals involving weapons used for terror, training

Headline
: “On the birthday of the Martyr (Shahid) – an oath of existence and not of absence”
   “The family of Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Ali yesterday [June 28, 2016] celebrated his 20th birthday, a birthday in which everyone was present aside from the one who was born on it, the new Martyr, the pulsing spirit in constant life, a birthday unlike any other birthday... 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.”

The picture on the cake is of terrorist Muhammad Ali stabbing a border policeman in the head, along with the text: “Muhammad Ali, commando fighter of the knives.”

“Fatah warned of the repercussions of the violations and the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and considered them to be playing with fire and pushing the situation towards an explosion.
Fatah Movement Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi emphasized that the Al-Aqsa Mosque is a red line that we will not allow to [be crossed,] no matter what sacrifices that requires.…
Likewise, the Fatah Movement saluted our members, our people, and those performing Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in its plazas, who are defending their land and their holy sites.”
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.

1974 Nahariya attack – On June 25, 1974, three Palestinian terrorists – Abd Al-Rahim Nasif, Ahmad Abd Al-‘Al, and Muhammad Hanafi - who had reached Israel by boat from Lebanon broke into an apartment building in Nahariya, where they murdered 30-year-old Irena Zarankin, her 10-year-old daughter Ronit, and her 5-year-old son Gilad. 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.

Even the [PA] Ministry of Finance knows that the current allowance, or the base allowance, that stands at 1,400 shekels a month, is very low. This amount was determined and implemented in mid-2011, which is to say around five years ago... There is understanding on the part of the [PA] Ministry of Finance regarding this demand. However, the discussion is currently revolving around the exact amount…The [PA] Ministry of Finance says that there is no allocation in the 2016 budget to increase the allowances, because this is supposed to start at the beginning of next year [2017], but on the other hand the [PLO’s] Families of the Martyrs and Wounded Institution says that there is a surplus in the budget and therefore we can start implementing this [increase] before the end of the year… The Palestinian Authority gives allowances to roughly 30,000 families of Martyrs and wounded inside the homeland and in the diaspora.”

PLO Head of Prisoners’ Affairs: Israeli new anti-terror legislation is “racist,” Palestinian “resistance” is legal and legitimate

Headline: “The Israeli ‘terror law’ strives to steal the legitimacy of our people’s and prisoners’ struggle against the occupation.

“Director of the PLO Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake called to increase the Palestinian diplomatic and legal activity in order to deal with racist and aggressive laws that the Israeli parliament is eager to legislate in recent years, the last of which was called the ‘terror law,’ which strives to turn the struggle of the Palestinian people into something criminal, to include it in the framework of terror, and legally prosecute the Palestinian resistance and its legal struggle against the occupation for the right to self-definition, freedom, and honor.”

Israeli anti-terror law – ratified on June 15, 2016 - legislates significantly stiffer penalties for acts related to terror – involvement in a terror attack, aiding terrorists in carrying out an attack, public support of or identification with acts of terror, heading a terrorist organization, working for a terrorist organization, acts/business deals involving weapons used for terror, training of terrorists, threatening to carry out a terror attack, etc., and allows the government or Minister of Defense to define an organization as a terrorist organization at the request of the Head of the Israeli Secret Service, after receiving the opinion of the attorney general.

Headline: “Tel Aviv operation (i.e., terror attack, 4 murdered) – between the sanctification of the weapon and its definition as a crime”
Op-ed by senior Palestinian political analyst and columnist Hani Al-Masri
     “If the main method of activity is appropriate for a certain period, that doesn’t mean that it is necessary to negate, reject, or condemn other types. On the contrary, the experience of struggle throughout history, including the Palestinian experience and the experience of India, South Africa and others, has proven that it is possible to integrate peaceful and armed methods of struggle, whether the method of the struggle at one stage or another is peaceful or armed, and no one side can alone determine the appropriate method of struggle. The nature of the conflict, its unique characteristics, the circumstances, the factors influencing it, and the conduct of the other side are what actively contribute to determining the method that will be adopted...
Armed resistance must always be present, as it is an anchored right, and it must be carried out in accordance with the circumstances, and must not be altogether uprooted, nor defined as a crime under any circumstances...
Likewise, we cannot help but examine the matter of harming civilians in Israel. Since it is a colonial, settler, racist, occupying entity, all of those in it are soldiers, and the proof of this is that weapons are common in all the different regions, and hundreds of thousands of civilians carry them on the streets. All of them, other than the ultra-orthodox Jews, serve in the army. However, most of the ultra-orthodox Jews, like all the rest, are radicals who incite the murder of non-Jews."

Official PA TV program Good Morning Jerusalem, interview with Muhammad Alyan, father of terrorist Baha Alyan, about the decision of the Israeli Minister of Internal Security to stop transferring the bodies of terrorists from Jerusalem to their families.
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.”
