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].


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.

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."

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."

The Voice of Palestine, the official PA radio station, children's program The Little Ones' Heaven, a song honoring the hunger striking prisoners is sung by a child who calls in to the program.

Child:
 "Our beautiful land is a prisoner in a cage surrounded by wolves,
My shaded garden was destroyed by the lumberjack and the dogs settled in it,
O Jerusalem, my city,
[With] my notebook, my pencil, and the fire of my rifle I will break the cage."
The Voice of Palestine host: “Excellent."

The song was in honor of the hunger-striking prisoners (April-May 2017): Palestinian terrorist prisoners launched a hunger strike on April 17, 2017, which ended on May 27, 2017, after an agreement was reached. While the prisoners had issued a list of demands, reportedly only the demand to have the Red Cross reinstate a second monthly family visit for prisoners was agreed to. Nevertheless, the PA has claimed the development as a victory.

     “The Progressive Student Action Front (i.e., the student organization of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP)) at Palestine Ahliya University College yesterday [March 28, 2017] honored the mothers of the Martyrs (Shahids) and prisoners for Mother’s Day, eternal Land Day, and the 39th anniversary of the death as a Martyr of Palestinian leader Wadi’ Haddad (i.e., PFLP terrorist).

He also noted the importance of noting the anniversaries of the leaders and Martyrs, and called for Land Day to constitute a stage of struggle in the confrontation against tyranny, settlement, and the situation of division (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas), and the beginning of the national awakening for liberation....
Mother of Martyr Abd Al-Hamid Abu Sorour (i.e., suicide bomber, injured 21) gave a speech on behalf of the Martyrs’ families, in which she said: ‘The Martyrs are lovers of the land.

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.”

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.” In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate “responsible for putting into effect the declaration,” which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.

We have not eliminated any method from our considerations, nor from our principles since the [Fatah] Launch [in 1965] until today: Popular resistance, armed struggle, and negotiations. If violence breaks out again, Israel will be responsible for it."
