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.

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."

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.”

     “[Advisor to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on NGOs and] Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein said that Palestine is the gate of peace and the gate of war, and that we are peaceful, but our peace will only come about after the withdrawal of the occupation from our land.... Abu Al-Einein emphasized that there is no one of our people who will give up on our people’s rights, which have been recorded in the sacrifice and blood of thousands of Martyrs (Shahids) and tens and even hundreds of thousands of wounded, and he sent blessings to our people in Jerusalem, who constitute the spearhead in the struggle against the Israeli occupation… He continued and said: ‘Our peace needs to be to the standards of the sacrifices of the Martyrs, the wounded, the prisoners behind the bars of the occupation’s prisons, and the refugees abroad,’ and he emphasized that there is no one of our people who will give up on the right of return and the compensation of the millions of refugees... He added that a people who does not oppose occupation will be without honor, and noted that the resistance to the occupation is a right anchored in heavenly and earthly laws, including international law…”
