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.”

Op-ed in PA daily glorifies "Martyrs," condemns Israel for demanding monument to terrorist be taken down 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 25, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
        “One of the new examples of the persecution of the living (i.e., eternal) Martyrs as part of Israeli policy is the government of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s threat to invade Jenin if the [Jenin] Municipality and [Jenin] District refuse to remove the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)... It would appear that there are those who almost submitted to the Israeli extortion, on the pretext of profit-loss considerations... The Martyr Nazzal monument, which was restored by members of the Jenin branch of the Fatah Movement, reflects the conscious and responsible national will, which understands the severity of the structural flaw in the outlook of those who almost damaged the Palestinian narrative (i.e., who temporarily removed the monument due to Israeli pressure). [Those people] did not grasp the dangerous consequences of their wretched step when they acceded to Israel’s will and [the will] of those who act like Israelis, because they are short-sighted and did not see beyond their noses. Therefore, well done fighters of Fatah and the national activity factions, who mobilized to defend the heroic Martyr Khaled Nazzal monument.”

      “The wife of Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, planned murder of 31), author Rima Kittaneh Nazzal, said in a phone call with Al-Ayyam that the Jenin Municipality removed the monument of her husband the Martyr yesterday [June 23, 2017], just one week after the municipality and district celebrated placing the monument... And returning to the page, he said that what happened was done after the matter had reached ‘the highest political echelons’ in the office[s] of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and [US President Donald] Trump, to the point that ‘the Israeli impudence’ reached the level of ‘sending a clear message to the PA that it must take down the stone on which the name of the Martyr was written,’ or else the occupation forces ‘would immediately destroy the entire square themselves with their bulldozers.’ Based on this, the decision was made in coordination with the Martyr’s brothers in Germany and Qabatiya to remove [the monument]... And returning to Jenin Mayor Abu Ghali’s statements: ‘The square still bears the name of Martyr Khaled Nazzal, and it will also continue to bear his name as the municipality council decided on that name.’”

DFLP honors terrorists as heroes devoted to “supreme national and human values”; claims Israel “holds ceremonies and places monuments” to Jewish terrorists 
Source: Ma’an, independent Palestinian news agency, June 24, 2017
Headline: “The Democratic Front praised our people’s position in the victory of Martyr Khaled Nazzal”

As a justification for their glorification of terror, Palestinian leaders often falsely claim that Israel honors Jews who murder Palestinians – Ed.

“The Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) praised the ‘honorable’ position of the masses of the Palestinian people, the national forces, and institutions, towards Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31) and all of the Martyrs, which caused the Jenin Municipality to change its mind on removing the Martyr Nazzal monument.
The Front said in a notice published by its organization in the Jenin district that the fact that the municipality changed its mind constitutes a correct national decision, a victory for the status of the Martyrs, and devotion to the supreme national and human values that they represent in the hearts of our people, its history, and its memory.
It added: ‘This heroic position expresses the public unity not only around Martyr Khaled Nazzal, but around all of the Martyrs of our people and our symbols of heroism, as well as loyalty to their sacrifice, and particularly of the Martyrs and prisoners. Standing by these heroes and the support for them is a national obligation that demands that we all together continue their path and their sacrifice, and particularly after the racist attack by [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and the American administration whose goal is to force our national movement to renounce our Martyrs and erase our national heritage.’

Chairman of Prisoners’ Club: We never lied to donors about salaries to terrorists; money goes to “legitimate resistance”

“Chairman of the [PA-funded] Prisoners’ Club Qadura Fares said that the international pressures to stop the payments of the prisoners and Martyrs (Shahids) are not something new and are the product of ongoing Israeli incitement.
He added: ‘We have always told the truth to the donor countries – that the donors’ money is used for the PA salaries, and we emphasize that the money is also used for political and civilian efforts against the occupation, the settlement, and the resolve against it [the occupation], also including, among other things, our legitimate resistance (‎term here refers to events that include violence against Israeli civilians such as rock-‎throwing, stabbings, and even shootings -Ed.).’
Fares emphasized that the topic of the prisoners and released prisoners’ salaries (rawatib) is an essential and ideological issue that touches the core of our life as a Palestinian people, and it is part of the direct contradiction between the Israeli occupation’s narrative and our narrative. He also noted that there is no [need for] concern regarding the issue of the salaries.
He continued: ‘No one in the PLO leadership can renounce this basic principle under any circumstances, because there is a clear and open consensus about not stopping the salaries, and therefore I am not concerned at all.’”

In addition, [Palestinians] from Jerusalem were wounded by the indiscriminate shooting of the occupation forces in order to begin a collective punishment of Jerusalem and its residents… The blood of the three Martyrs had not dried when the blood of another Martyr watered the ground of the homeland. Young Baha Imad Al- Harbawi, 23, was shot by the occupation and died as a Martyr next to the Jaba’ checkpoint northeast of Jerusalem, on the pretext that he tried to carry out a stabbing operation. [However,] no injury to the occupation’s ranks was documented.”

PA chief negotiator Erekat falsely claims: Israel guilty of incitement and dedicating landmarks to ‘terrorists’, glorifies ‘Zionist terror’ 
Source: WAFA, official PA news agency, June 22, 2017
Headline: "Erekat warned against cooperation with the Israeli narrative of incitement"

"Secretary of the PLO Executive Committee[, Fatah Central Committee member, and PLO Chief Negotiator] Saeb Erekat rejected the false accusations and claims that Israel is spreading regarding what it calls 'the official Palestinian incitement.'
Erekat emphasized in a statement this evening, Thursday [June 22, 2017], that the occupation government is working continuously to deflect attention and to find new and misleading excuses such as 'the claims of incitement' every time an opportunity is created to revive the political process, in contrast to the Palestinian leadership that is committed to the two-state solution and the full implementation of international law.
Erekat's response came in the wake of Israel’s ongoing attempts to call our people’s national struggle terror and to turn our fighter Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners since the outbreak of the Palestinian revolution into criminals.
Erekat explained that the reason that Israel refuses to revive the tripartite committee that deals with incitement stems from the built-in policy of the right-wing government to incite and glorify Zionist terror. He said: 'One example of this is the fact that [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu himself inaugurated a hospital last April that was named after [former Israeli Prime Minister] Yitzhak Shamir, the terrorist responsible for the killing of hundreds of civilians, including [his] issuing the orders to assassinate UN Peace Mediator Count Folke Bernadotte from Sweden, in addition to blowing up the King David Hotel [in Jerusalem], which led to the death of dozens of civilians (Shamir was a leader of the pre-state Jewish militia Lehi that assassinated Count Bernadotte –Ed.)."
PLO Prisoner Commissioner: Support for prisoners and Martyrs’ families is a constitutional obligation

Headline: “Karake: Taking care of the families of the prisoners, Martyrs, and injured is part of the Palestinian constitution”

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said that taking care of the families of the Martyrs (Shahids), prisoners, wounded, and disabled is anchored in clause 22 of the Palestinian basic laws, which have constituted the constitution of the Palestinian state since the establishment of the PA. This is so because according to the basic laws, the law needs to regulate the social and health insurance services and the disability and old age allowances, and to take care of the families of the Martyrs and prisoners as well as the wounded and disabled. This is an obligation regulated by law, and under its framework the PA is obligated to provide them with education services and medical and social insurance.
Karake explained that taking care of the families who were harmed by the occupation is one of the lawful, legal, and administrative components of the Palestinian political system, and based on this the [PA] Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs was established, which afterwards became the [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs.”

“The [PA] Ministry of Information today (Tuesday) [June 20, 2017] said that it is monitoring Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements against [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas regarding what he called ‘ poisoning the minds of Palestinian youth,’ his demand to ‘educate for peace, not terror,’ and his attack on naming a square after Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal (i.e., terrorist, planned murder of 31 ) in Jenin.
The [PA] ministry added in its announcement that the government of Israel, and its leader Netanyahu, do not cease lethal incitement and to pay money for the defense of Israeli murderers, criminals, and terrorists.
It continued: ‘The incitement from the occupation prime minister is the recycling of an occupation discourse packed with fraud and fabrication, while ignoring that Israel is proud of murderers and criminals from among its army and its settlers who have committed crimes against humanity against the members of our people since 1948, have committed barbaric massacres, have completely erased hundreds of cities and villages, and are continuing on the same path throughout the Palestinian land.’
