Violence and terror
Promoting violence & 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].

Promoting violence & terror
Palestinian political, religious, and social frameworks justify and promote violence and terror. On the one hand, Imams on Hamas and PA TV, political leaders and even children routinely express calls for future terror attacks against Jews and Israel. Citing the inherent evil Jewish nature, they proclaim that it is an Islamic and Palestinian duty to defend against the immediate threat and kill Jews.

On the other hand, the PA and Hamas actively glorify terrorists, particularly suicide terrorists, praising the killer and the act of killing as righteous and honorable.
At a PA cultural festival in June 2010, in the presence of the PA Minister of Culture, singers and dancers promote and glorify violence.
[PA TV (Fatah), The song was broadcast live on PA TV on June 4 and was rebroadcast June 24, July 9, July 13, July 16, July 20, Sept. 21, and Dec. 31, 2010. It was rebroadcast in 2011 on Oct. 3, 4, and 7]

The Palestinian Authority, Fatah and Hamas have created vast educational, social and cultural networks aimed at children that promote and glorify violence and terror. Palestinian children are taught through educational videos, schoolbooks, TV mascots and cultural events, to see violence and the “armed conflict” as heroic and to see themselves as future fighters against Israel:
"I came here following the conference elections. I hope that there will be more conferences like the 6th Fatah Conference (August 2009). These conferences are important for us because it makes us aware of leadership and that we will be combatants and wage resistance (violence) against the Israelis."

At a Fatah high school graduation event, under the auspices of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, the student graduates explained what they were taught by Fatah:
Male graduate: "In the name of the Shahids (Martyrs), in the name of the prisoners, in the name of the stone and the rifle."
Female graduate: "In the name of Fatah, the school that taught us the meaning of nationalism."
Male graduate: "In the name of Palestine: Haifa, Acre, Jaffa, and our Arab Jerusalem."
Female graduate: "In the name of Palestine: Gaza, the West Bank and the flag of national unity."
...
Male graduate: "Fatah is [still] with the rifle. And our rifles are not rusty even if they have fired thousands of bullets." [Al-Filistiniya (Fatah), July 28, 2009] Click here to view

Palestinian girl Raghad:
“Saladin (i.e., Musim leader who conquered Jerusalem in 1187) calls to me from my depths
All my Arabness calls me to vengeance and liberation...
Thousands of prisoners… call to this great nation and call to millions and say to them:
To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist's soul
and raise the Palestinian banner in the world's sky
And strengthen my word that goes on:
Palestinian, Palestinian, Palestinian."

Official PA TV, special news broadcast on the March of Return violent riots that have been taking place since March 30, 2018 (see note below)

Official PA TV reporter: "With me on the ground is one of the girls who is participating in this march. May Allah give you health, how are you?"

Reporter: "What is your name so we can get to know you?"

Girl: “Siraj Muhammad Abdallah Bseiso.”

Reporter: “You aren’t scared when you come and participate here in the March of Return (violent riots taking place on the Gaza border with Israel; see note below -Ed.)?”

Girl: “I want to say that what was sacrificed today - (she attempts to recite Palestinian poet Samih Al-Qasim’s poem The Intifada; see note below -Ed.) Hell is above all of the skies, and all of the land that is under them is Hell. When a child and old person die among us, we do not succumb. When the mother falls on her killed children, we also do not succumb. They transfer their soldiers, threaten us, chase us off, orphan us, and destroy us. But they will not break our depths and will not defeat our longings. We are an indisputable decision, we are an indisputable decision. Here, the [refugee] camp has advanced. The wounded, the slaughtered, the bereaved, and the orphan have advanced! The stones of the stalks have advanced, the stones of the houses have advanced… We are an indisputable decision, we are an indisputable decision. Hell is above all of the skies, and all of the land that is under them is Hell. Advance, advance, advance!”

Instructions on Facebook to Gazans for "March of Return" riots: "Bring a knife, dagger, or handgun," kidnap Israeli civilians, and murder soldiers and settlers  
Source: Independent Palestinian Facebook page "The Great March of Return", May 14, 2018

Text posted on the independent Palestinian Facebook page "The Great March of Return"

Posted text:
“#IMPORTANT #Instructions for participants: [...]
Rebelling young people,
Treat seriously and do not take lightly the requests to bring a knife, dagger, or handgun, if you have one, and to leave them under your clothes and not use them or show them, except if you identify one of the [Israeli] soldiers or settlers. Do not kill Israeli civilians, instead hand them over to the resistance immediately, because this is the point that Israel fears, as it knows that the capturer can set any condition he wants.”

The Palestinian Authority justifies all terror as legitimate armed conflict, coining it “resistance,” the Palestinian euphemism for violence ranging from the terror to suicide bombings to stone throwing:
Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee and former PA senior official, Jibril Rajoub:
"Building a school and throwing a hand grenade, in my opinion, are resistance. I build the school in order to strengthen the reasons for my people's resolve, as one of several aspects of the resistance, and when there is a need to throw a grenade [or launch] a rocket, I'll do that as well out of my belief in the inevitable victory of my cause and its justness."

The PA at times adds that violence must be used wisely as an effective political tool. Depending on the political circumstances the Palestinian Authority alternates active calls for violence and terror with periods when they say that terror is being postponed because of temporary conditions:
Dr. Nabil Shaath, Fatah Foreign Affairs Commissioner:
"The popular struggle is a fundamental principle whose importance equals that of the armed struggle, since it is the responsibility and task of all the people. The current distancing from the armed struggle does not mean its absolute rejection." [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 21, 2010]
Fatah leader Diab Al-Louh once worded it this way on PA TV: “The rifle seeds and diplomacy reaps.”

Fatah Facebook rebroadcasts Abbas' call to prevent Jews "in any way" from “defiling our holy places,” following terror attack on the Temple Mount  
Source: Official Fatah Facebook page, Nov. 28, 2018


Text and video posted on the official Fatah Facebook page

PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas: “It's not enough for us to say: ‘There are those carrying out Ribat’ (religious conflict / war over land claimed to be Islamic). We must all carry out Ribat in the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. It's not enough for us to say: ‘The settlers have arrived [at the Mosque]’. They have come, and they must not come to the Sanctuary (i.e., Temple Mount). We have to prevent them, in any way whatsoever, from entering the Sanctuary. This is our Sanctuary, our Al-Aqsa and our Church [of the Holy Sepulchre]. They have no right to enter it. They have no right to defile it. We must prevent them. Let us stand before them with chests bared to protect our holy places.”

“Rush toward death and life will be given to you” - Fatah leader to university students 
Source: Official Facebook page of Abbas' Presidential Guard, Nov. 19, 2018

Text accompanying video on Facebook:
“Fatah Central Committee member [and Fatah Commissioner for Arab and China Relations] brother Abbas Zaki’s speech during the reception for the new students, the Yasser Arafat class, in the Nablus branch of Al-Quds Open University.”

Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki: “Jerusalem is the jewel in the crown. Yasser Arafat knew the value of Jerusalem and repeatedly said: ‘Millions of Martyrs (Shahids) are marching towards Jerusalem.”
Abbas Zaki chants and the audience repeats: “Millions of Martyrs are marching to Jerusalem.”
Abbas Zaki:
“Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar! Cursed is anyone who does not sacrifice for Jerusalem!… what did [Arafat] say? He said: ‘Arise! The gates of Heaven have opened.’ He who seeks death – life will be given to him. Those who die [naturally] are the cowards. But real men approach death with a smile… Do not be afraid - death is in the hands of Allah. Rush toward death and life will be given to you!’”
