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."

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
Islamic teacher to children at summer camp: Dead Ribat Martyrs get seventy virgins, ordinary Martyrs get only two 
Source: Al-Msjed Al-Aqsa YouTube channel, July 26, 2015


Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi speaks to children at an Al-Aqsa Mosque summer camp about
Ribat fighters, Martyrs and the virgins awaiting them in Paradise:
Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi: “Let's talk about the Hadith (i.e., Islamic tradition) of Prophet Muhammad about the Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic). It compares the stature of the Martyr to that of the [martyred] Ribat fighter. The Prophet says... Three privileges are bestowed upon the Martyr: "His sins are forgiven with the first gush of blood. He marries two of the Dark-Eyed (i.e., virgins) of Paradise. He advocates on behalf of 70 members of his family." In the same Hadith, the Prophet talks about the [martyred] Ribat fighter... He marries 70 of the Dark-Eyed (i.e., virgins). The Martyr gets two, while the Ribat fighter gets 70 of the Dark-Eyed. The Ribat fighter gets 35 times more than the Martyr... The Prophet says... The Ribat fighter who dies in Ribat can advocate on Judgement Day on behalf of anyone he wants for 50,000 years.”
Bystander: "Do they [the children] even understand what you are saying?"
Children in the summer camp: "Allah is Great! Allah is Great!"
Sheikh Khaled Al-Mughrabi: "Leave us alone. Leave us alone."
Bystander: "Can they understand things like Ribat, Martyrdom and the Dark-Eyed [Virgins]? You should be ashamed, sir, a man with a white beard like you. Give these lessons to us [adults], not to children. Look at these children, you fill their heads with this?"
Children: “With our lives and blood, we will redeem Al-Aqsa!”
PA-Fatah summer camp for kids: AK-47 automatic weapons and youth in military uniforms dancing with rifles

Fatah-run Awdah TV program Morning of my Homeland reports on the fifth summer camp ‘Jerusalem in the Eyes of the Lion Cubs and Flowers of Palestine.’
The report begins by showing children wearing uniforms and carrying rifles performing a folk dance. The camp was eight days long and was organized by the PA National Security Forces. More than 150 children of “Martyrs” (Shahids) and prisoners participated in the camp. The camp took place in Sebastia in the Nablus district, in coordination with the Fatah youth movement ‘Institution for Lion Cubs and Flowers of Palestine’ (translated to English on their shirts as ‘Institution for Young Boys and Girls).
The camp’s closing ceremony in Sebastia, during which the campers also danced with rifles, was attended by Nablus District Governor Akram Rajoub, Minister and Head of Bureau of Clerks Musa Abu Zaid, Secretary of Fatah’s Nablus branch, and representatives of the PA national Security Forces. The closing ceremony integrated artistic performances and a military parade by the campers during which the Nablus District Governor spoke.

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.”
Hamas, in response to Palestinian criticism, publishes anti-PA cartoon that depicts the "West Bank" stabbing and killing a Jew  
Source: Facebook page of cartoonist Bahaa' Yassin, Aug. 1, 2015

On Jul. 31, 2015, Hamas tweeted a cartoon that was critical of Fatah and the PA, depicting a Jew raping a  woman, representing the West Bank, and murdering children while a PA soldier stands by idly. The cartoon outraged the PA and generated anger in the Palestinian street. Hamas was forced to remove the cartoon from its twitter account and apologize, while the cartoonist, Baha Yassin removed the cartoon from his Facebook page and replaced it with a modified version that is actually a continuation of the first one, differentiating between the population of the West Bank and the Palestinian Authority.

In this cartoon, a woman with the words "West Bank" written in green, the color of Hamas, stabs the Jew in the back in the center of the "Star of David" and kills him. The new "West Bank" woman holds the knife dripping with the Jew's blood, then rebukes the first yellow (Fatah) woman, who is now renamed "[Palestinian] Authority".
Woman 2 to woman 1: "I will attain what my children deserve and what you deserve, [Palestinian] Authority of shame."
The cartoonist added this text beside the visual: "This is the West Bank that I know."
Text on the policeman's post now reads: "Security Cooperation Position" [A reference to the security cooperation between the Israeli army and the PA.]
