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."

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 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.”
Speaking at university event, PLO official warns of impending "popular intifada" 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 31, 2017
Headline: “Karake visited a prisoners’ exhibition at An-Najah [University] and participated in a meeting of the national [and Islamic] forces in Nablus”
     “Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Issa Karake said that, in the shadow of the battle of freedom and dignity that the prisoners are waging by launching an unlimited hunger strike, the Prisoner’s Day events this year will be extraordinary and comprehensive. These events are a message from the Palestinian people to the world that we are a people that is interested only in its freedom and having the occupation leave our lives so we will be able to live in dignity.
Karake said that the Prisoner’s Day events will turn into a popular intifada, the breaking of the chains, and the release of the prisoners. He added that these events are a response to the ongoing steps of oppression against the prisoners’ rights and the taking of their fighting and national identity, in light of the ongoing official incitement against them and the arbitrary laws that the occupation government is legislating that harm the prisoners’ dignity and violate international law.
Karake’s statements came after his meeting with acting President of An-Najah [National] University Dr. Maher Al-Natsheh and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Muhammad Al-Amleh.”

Text on image: “On April 17, [2017,] prisoners of the Palestinian National Liberation Movement Fatah... will launch a new heroic campaign, whose fuel is their empty stomachs…
Our brave prisoners in all of the Nazi occupation’s prisons and detention camps are declaring a hunger strike with no time limit to defend the dignity of our people and its right to freedom and independence, and in resistance to the humiliation and the Nazi policy that the racist [Israeli] Prison Service is trying to impose on our prisoners…
We in the [Fatah] student [movement] Shabiba in Palestine declare the following:
  • Let us turn April 17, 2017, into a fire that will burn the occupiers and burn the land like an inferno under the feet of the tyrants, and let’s escalate the popular resistance (i.e., term used by Palestinians that includes use of violence -Ed.) everywhere. Therefore, we call on our brave students and the masses of our people to escalate the confrontation with the occupier at all the places of confrontation. We also call to intensify the campaigns of support for them and their families, because our prisoners are not alone in the campaign for freedom and dignity...”
