Violence and terror
Glorifying terrorists and terror
Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].


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

Glorifying terrorists and terror
Palestinian society’s habitual glorification of terrorists as heroes and role models is one of its most effective means of promoting terror. In honoring the worst killers, the PA is simultaneously giving approval to murder and enticing future terrorists with assurances of glory and honor if they succeed in killing. Terror and murder become the Palestinian’s ticket to fame, honor and glory.

The terrorists honored most highly amongst Palestinian society are those who have killed the greatest number. Abd Al-Baset Udeh, killer of 30 at the Passover Seder massacre, had a soccer tournament for 14-year-olds named for him. His brother was honored with distributing the trophies. Dalal Mughrabi, terrorist bus hijacker (led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children) has had summer camps, schools, graduation ceremonies and sporting events named for her, as well as many TV documentaries honoring her. Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009]. Thaer Hammad, who as a lone gunman murdered 10 Israelis in 2002, was glorified by the official PA daily as “the hero of the Intifada."

This adulation of the worst terrorists and praise for their heroism reflects the policy of the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. This video shows PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas,
issuing “greetings of honour and esteem” to mass murderers, whom he publicly names, one by one:
“I send greetings of honour and esteem to all prisoners...
Said 'Ataba (serving life sentence for murder in terror attack)…
Marwan Barghouti (serving 5 life sentences for planning murderous terror attacks)
Ahmad Sa'adat (serving 30 years in prison for heading the terrorist organization PFLP; honored on PA TV for planning the assassination of Israeli Minister Ze'evi in 2001, but never tried)
Aziz Dweik (Hamas leader, chairman of Palestinian parliament)
Jamal Huweil (life sentence for planning terror attacks)
Jamal Tirawi (life sentence for café suicide terror attack).
Greetings to you from our people.”

PLO official visits family of terrorist who murdered 3 Israelis 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 22, 2017
     "[Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs Issa] Karake mentioned the situation of the family members of wounded prisoner Omar Al-Abd (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3), residents of the village of Kubar in the Ramallah sub-district. In a visit he paid to the family, together with a delegation from the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners' Affairs and the [PA-funded] Prisoners' Club, he said that [the family] constitutes a prominent example of the collective and arbitrary punishment by the occupation authorities.
It should be noted that after Omar was arrested and wounded, the occupation forces destroyed the house and expropriated the land that it was built on. They also arrested his three brothers, Khaled, Munir, and Omar (sic), his mother Ibtisam, his father Abd Al-Jalil, and their uncle Ibrahim (the terrorist's relatives were arrested based on information that they knew of the attack in advance and did not stop it, and for incitement in celebrating it afterwards -Ed.)."

     “The occupation army yesterday [Aug. 17, 2017] blew up the home of Martyr (Shahid) Adel Hassan Ahmed Ankoush’s family in the village of Deir Abu Mash’al, west of Ramallah.”

Bara Saleh, Adel Ankoush, Osama Ata – three Palestinian terrorists who carried out a terror attack in Jerusalem on June 16, 2017. Two of the terrorists, one armed with an automatic weapon and the other with a knife, attacked Israeli police officers north of the Old City of Jerusalem. Seconds later a third terrorist stabbed and murdered Israeli border policewoman Hadas Malka, 23, at the Old City’s Damascus Gate as she and other officers were responding to the first attack. All three terrorists were shot and killed by the Israeli officers. Aside from Malka, four Israelis were wounded in the attack. ISIS initially claimed responsibility for the attack but Hamas rejected the claim, saying the terrorists were members of Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).

Op-ed in official PA daily praises murderer of 3 Israelis, justifies his attack because Israel "murdered" Palestinains first 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Aug. 17, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Yahya Rabah, regular columnist for the official PA daily

     “The first news item that I read yesterday morning (Wednesday) [Aug. 16, 2017] was that the Israeli occupation forces destroyed the home of the family of Omar Al-Abd (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3), who carried out the operation (i.e., terror attack) in the Halamish settlement, which is in (sic., near) the village of Kubar in the Ramallah sub-district. The objective of this operation was 3 settlers, thieves of the Palestinian land, in response to the death of Martyrs (Shahids) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas who were shot by the Israeli occupation soldiers (refers to three terrorists who murdered 2 Israelis on the Temple Mount; see note below –Ed.)...
As for you, youth from Kubar, Omar Al-Abd – your name has been perpetuated in the Palestinian wedding songs, and we will build you and your family a home even if they destroy it a thousand times... We will continue to insist on your innocence, because they are the ones who are constantly inciting to murder… Their crimes of murder are directed towards Palestinians because they are Palestinians, while we hate the occupation because it is an occupation.”

     “Israeli occupation forces raided several homes of prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids) in various neighborhoods of occupied Jerusalem on Tuesday evening [Aug. 15, 2017]…
The occupation police’s statement noted that among the houses that were destroyed was the home of Martyr Tareq Abu Arfa (i.e., terrorist, involved in murder of 2) (sic., Abu Arfa’s house was raided but not destroyed) – in the Ras Al-Amud neighborhood of the village of Silwan (i.e., neighborhood of Jerusalem), south of the Al-Aqsa Mosque – who took part in the kidnapping operation of Israeli soldier Nahshon Waxman in 1994. [The house was destroyed based] on the claim that the Hamas Movement is paying money to Martyr Abu Arfa’s mother.”

On Aug. 14, 2017, the Israeli Security Agency announced that a Hamas funding apparatus that was transferring money to terrorists’ families in Jerusalem had been busted, and the money had been seized in raids on the homes of the families, including that of the mother of terrorist Tareq Abu Arfa.

At a ceremony held at the PA’s headquarters in Ramallah for the conclusion of the summer camps of 2017, organized by the PLO Supreme Council for Sport and Youth Affairs, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reiterated that the Palestinians will continue their “struggle” until Jerusalem, Israel's capital, is on Palestinian hands:

Abbas: “The children of Palestine are the hope, the future, the independence, and the state, and in them we see Jerusalem, the capital of our independent state… [Palestinians are] continuing in our national struggle until one of our boys and girls will wave the flag of the State of Palestine above the walls of Jerusalem.’”

Abbas also praised Palestinians for their violent “uprising” against Israel’s security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque during the summer (2017) following a terror attack on the Temple Mount in which two Israeli border policemen were murdered. “We are with you and we support your resolve, and this is the reason that we say that the willpower of the peoples works wonders, and this is what happened at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”
