Violence and terror
From music to murder
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.

Lyrics: "Our Jerusalem, we’re at your service when you ask...
Our Jerusalem is a jewel of gold in the crown of the Arabs
O sun that lights up the homeland and is not extinguished
O [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu, listen or we'll make you listen
Your army needs to disappear from Palestine...
No matter how wide our Al-Aqsa is, there will be no place for you (i.e., Israel)
It won't allow a division (i.e., of prayer times for Muslims and Jews)
If you are not convinced, we'll convince you by force...
O our Martyr, we must follow in your footsteps
The homeland’s wound has been healed by your blow [against Israel]."

Poet Abdallah Qishta begins to recite the poem "A Homeland That is Tired of Waiting"
Poet Abdallah Qishta:
"Oh my enemy, others are brighter than you…
You are a Nazi, do not lie and do not call for peace
The chaos of your corruption is running rampant in Muslim countries
Your ebb and flow have come to an end, the illusion has reached its end and dissipated
Your time has come, accursed is your grandfather who brought us the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration)
[Even if] a period passes, we will not forget and our veins will be renewed
Your fate is shame and disgrace, regardless of what will come to pass.
Tomorrow we will liberate our land and we will lay the cornerstone,
Sometimes with weapons, and sometimes with politics.
The soil always calls to us: 'Come with [your] head held high,
Wear the crown of glory, and break the head of the evil one’
Its [the soil’s] knife will express our rage and will not allow the Al-Aqsa Mosque to be harmed…"
Official PA TV host: "We do not deny that the poem is wonderful and the style is very unique, especially as there is an attractiveness to the Nabataean or Bedouin poem, as some know it ."

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” and is seen as the basis for later international commitments to establish the State of Israel.

The song’s lyrics:
"Be an erupting volcano, be a burnt clay stone, in your Jihad language repeat: Death to Israel
Destroy the Zionist throne, the structure of [former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon’s absolute evil and terror, and raise the flag to victory
Be an erupting volcano, be a burnt clay stone, in your Jihad language repeat: Death to Israel
Advance as a sweeping current, and uproot the traitor’s fences, like wind on a stormy day, like a roaring wave at sea
Be an erupting volcano, be a burnt clay stone, in your Jihad language repeat: Death to Israel!"

Your bomb [fragments] are inside the enemy’s body
You did not allow any bus to drive in the street without its roof flying into the sky
The roof along with body parts...
O bearer of good news, strap on an explosive belt
Nothing will be told about the Intifada except for the roof of the bus that flew off
O Martyrdom seeker, respond to Al-Aqsa’s call
Make the bomb even more powerful
Bring [Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu down
And the losses should be too many for him to count
Scatter them in all directions, terrorize their families
Have no mercy on the settlers
Onward, send them to Hell
They have nothing but graveyards...
O Martyrdom seeker, make them weep
Let fire burn them, turn them into body parts, roast them...
