Religious War
"Our war with the descendants of the apes and pigs (i.e., Jews) is a war of religion and faith. Long Live Fatah!”
[PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]
This statement was made by the moderator at a Fatah event, and it highlights a dangerous trend by the PA and Fatah to define the conflict with Israel as an uncompromising religious war, mandated by Islam.

Indeed, Palestinian society has undergone a major shift towards fundamental Islam. In 2010, more than 98% of Palestinians surveyed said that religion plays an important role in their lives, while less than 1% considered religion not important.” [Ramallah Center for Human Rights Studies (RCHRS)]. 80% of Palestinians approved of hand amputations for theft, in a 2003 poll, while 50% thought this form of punishment should be implemented immediately, and 30% conditioned it on improved judicial conditions. [Bir Zeit Univ. Development Studies Program, Poll No.14, 2003]

An integral part of this Palestinian Islamization is the teaching that Islam is at war with Jews and Israel. Jews are said to be the enemy of Allah, and PA (Fatah) and Hamas religious and academic leaders alike have reiterated on numerous occasions, including as recently as January 2012 by the PA Mufti, the Islamic teaching that the Hour of Resurrection is dependent on the extermination of Jews:
PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein: “Palestine in its entirety is a revolution… continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith… says:
"The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews. The Jew will hide behind stones or trees. Then the stones or trees will call: 'Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.'”
[PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 9, 2012]

Thus, the murder of Jews becomes a prerequisite for and fulfillment of the Islamic ideal. In a 2011 poll, (by Israel Project) 73% of Palestinians said they “believe” the Islamic Hadith that preaches it is Islamic destiny to kill Jews wherever they are.

Similarly, the conflict with Israel is presented as a Ribat, an uncompromising Islamic obligation to defend or liberate Islamic holy land. Israel is said to exist on Islamic holy land that must be liberated for Allah.

One result of the PA Islamic teachings is the strong support for suicide terror in defense of Islam. The Washington-based PEW organization found that 68% of Palestinians “often” (31%) or “sometimes” (37%) justify suicide terror against civilians “to defend Islam.” This 68% of Palestinians justifying suicide terror to defend their religion is twice as much support as in any other Muslim country polled, with the nearest being Lebanon, where only 35% in total supported suicide terror in defense of Islam.

Conflict with Israel defined as religious
The PA leadership (Fatah), like Hamas, teach that fighting Israel is not merely a territorial conflict, but also a religious battle for Islam. The PA schoolbooks produced by Fatah educators define the
conflict with Israel as "Ribat for Allah" – "one of the actions related to Jihad for Allah, and it means: Being found in areas where there is a struggle between Muslims and their enemies." [Islamic Education, grade 12, p. 86]. Israel is stigmatized as “an enemy” existing on Islamic land, and fighting Israel is transformed from an Arab nationalistic goal into an uncompromising religious war. Moreover, Palestinian youth are taught that their specific conflict with Israel is "one of the greatest of the Ribat, and they [Palestinians] are worthy of a great reward from Allah" [Ibid, pp.86- 87].

This video shows a PA member of parliament from the Fatah party, describing the war with Israel as continuous: “We Palestinians were created on this land in order to liberate it. We are on the land of Ribat and must remain [on it] Ribat until Resurrection.”
Abbas' advisor blesses Jerusalem terrorists, calling them “those who carry ‎out Ribat”‎

Oh, those who carry out Ribat (religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) in the plazas of the first direction of prayer of Allah (i.e. the Al-Aqsa Mosque) in the name of your people and your Arab nation... Blessed be your quality weapons, the wheels of your cars, your axes and kitchen knives.

Supreme Shari'ah Judge and Abbas' advisor, Mahmoud Al-Habbash:
“First of all, allow me to say that we kiss every forehead, every hand and even every foot that carries out Ribat (religious conflict/ war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in Jerusalem... I am not talking about strengthening their resolve; I am talking about participating in their resolve... We are behind them. The leadership is with them. A few days ago, President [Mahmoud Abbas] greeted them, reinforced them and requested more Ribat from them. This statement may have angered the Israelis and the occupation, that the President is inciting the Palestinians from Jerusalem to [perform] Ribat. Yes, we are inciting the people in Jerusalem to [perform] Ribat. Ribat means to protect and to hold on to your ground. We are with them in every movement, in every action and every deed, and we welcome what they are doing at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque.”

Hamas: "We will build an Islamic state in Palestine, all of Palestine" (i.e., Israel) 
Source: Al-Ayyam, Oct. 1, 2014
Headline: "Al-Zahar: The Hamas movement will build an Islamic state in all of Palestine"
     "Hamas Political Bureau member Mahmoud Al-Zahar emphasized that Hamas would 'build an Islamic State in all of Palestine.' During a ceremony for the relatives of policemen killed by the Israeli army in Gaza, Al-Zahar said: '[Some] have said Hamas wants to create an Islamic emirate in Gaza. We won't do that, but we will build an Islamic state in Palestine, all of Palestine.' Al-Zahar said that if his movement were to 'transfer what it has or just a small part of it to the West Bank, we would be able to settle the battle of the final promise (an allusion to Sura 17:7 of the Quran, see note below) with a speed that no one can imagine.'
He continued by saying: 'We know exactly how to liberate the land of Palestine, and we know how to hit every inch of Palestine with our hands, brains, and money.' Al-Zahar promised 'to protect the resistance project, including all its military, police, security and civilian wings.'
On the [issue of the] PA and the transfer of control of the Gaza Strip to the unity government, he said: 'They relinquished these positions, but we look out for our citizens and our homeland. In no way whatsoever will we allow anyone to harm the resistance project or the dignity of any citizen.'"

Note: His expression "the final promise" is taken from Sura 17:7 of the Quran: "Then when the final promise came, [We sent your enemies]... to enter the temple in Jerusalem, as they entered it the first time, and to destroy what they had taken over with [total] destruction.'" (trans. Sahih International) By alluding to this passage in the context of Israel, Hamas is promising a future war of destruction against Israel.
Speaker at rally says “Allah’s promise is ‎real” – Muslims’ destiny is to kill the ‎Jews

‎     “The refugee camps of our Palestinian ‎people in Lebanon were filled today, ‎Friday, with processions and mass rallies ‎marking the 32nd anniversary of the Sabra ‎and Shatila massacre... ‎Sheikh Fuad Abd Al-Latif gave a speech in ‎which he said: ‘Victory is on the way, Allah ‎willing, because Allah the exalted ‎promised it to us. Allah’s promise is real, ‎and He told us in His Book: “And ‎incumbent upon Us was support of the ‎believers.” (Quran, Sura 30:47, translation ‎Shahih International) Meaning, the victory ‎of the believers will arrive, Allah willing, ‎when he will grant speech to the trees and ‎stones, so they will be able to say, “O ‎Muslim, come.

Note: The story of a stone or tree beckoning a ‎Muslim to kill a Jew appears in numerous ‎Islamic texts. One example is the following ‎Hadith from the Sahih Muslim book of Hadith: ‎‎“Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger ‎‎(Peace be upon Him) as saying: ‘The last hour ‎will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews ‎and kill them until the Jews hide behind a stone ‎or a tree, and the stone or a tree will say: ‎‎“Muslim, or servant of Allah, there is a Jew ‎behind me; come and kill him”; but the Gharqad ‎tree will not say [this], for it is the tree of the ‎Jews.’”‎
Sabra and Shatila are Palestinian refugee ‎camps in Lebanon. In 1982, during the first ‎Lebanon War, Muslim residents of the ‎camps were massacred by Christian ‎Phalangists.

Lebanese Mufti: “Teach your children... Palestine’s liberation from the foreign occupation is a holy charge entrusted to you from generation to generation” 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, May 25, 2014
     “In a letter written on the occasion of the Day commemorating Muhammad’s Night Journey and Ascent to Heaven, the Mufti of Lebanon, Mohammed Rashid Qabbani, said that the fact that Allah transported the Prophet from the Holy Mosque in Mecca to the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem showed the deep religious connection between Mecca and Jerusalem in Islam.
In his letter, the Mufti… said: ‘Our deep wound has opened again. Palestine has been under foreign occupation since 1948; teach your children that Palestine is Arab land and an Arab country that was conquered by the Hebrew foreigner. [Teach them] that its liberation from the foreign occupation, so it may be purely Arab once more, is a holy charge entrusted to you from generation to generation, until Allah summons an upright leadership for this nation, which will lead this nation towards the liberation [of Palestine]… As in the past Omar ibn Al-Khattab (a prominent 7th- century caliph) liberated it from the Byzantines, and after him, Saladin Al-Ayyubi from the Europeans and Crusaders. Nations do not sell their homelands, nor do they relinquish them or any part of them to a foreigner, no matter how strong he may be.’”

Sheikh on PA TV: "Islam calls for Jihad and to seek Martyrdom death" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 29, 2014
Official PA TV program Personal Encounter hosted Sheikh Jamal Khattab Deputy Head of the Islamic Jihadist Movement from the Ain Al-Hilweh refugee camp in Lebanon.
The movement was founded in the 1970s and participated in the Palestinian struggle.

Sheikh Jamal Khattab: “The Islamic [Jihadist] Movement fulfilled this role [in light of its] Islamic background. The source is that Islam calls for Jihad and to seek Martyrdom death (Istish'had) and to liberate the land. Most of the Palestinian people are Muslim by nature. Even those who weren’t in Islamic organizations come from a religious morality. Even Fatah’s first declaration was ‘Out of our faith in holy Jihad.’ Therefore we took on this role at that time so as to fulfill the Islamic reality of the period, because everyone was asking what the Muslims’ role in liberating Palestine was.”
PA Mufti: While we call for peace, we adhere to our rights and we will defeat our enemies

Palestinian Authority Mufti Muhammad Hussein gave a Friday sermon. In the congregation were numerous Palestinian Authority dignitaries, including Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah; Advisor to Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on NGOs and Fatah Central Committee Member Sultan Abu Al-Einein; Minister of the Interior Said Abu-Ali; and Member of Parliament and Secretary-General of the National Initiative Movement former Minister of Information Mustafa Barghouti.
PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein: “We always seek justice, call for peace and call to hold on to this land. We will not abandon it. Seeking peace or working for peace will never contradict a person’s adherence to his right and his adherence to his cause, and we must all act accordingly, until Allah makes His ruling (i.e., until Judgment Day). And Allah is omnipotent. It is stated in a Hadith that the honorable Prophet, Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, said: ‘A group [of people] from among my nation will adhere to their religion and defeat their enemies, they will not be harmed by those who oppose them, until Allah makes His ruling.
We said: ‘Oh Messenger of Allah, where are they?’
He answered: ‘They are in Jerusalem and its surroundings.’”

PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash: “There is a message we must convey to those who kidnapped the Yarmouk [Palestinian] refugee camp [in Syria] with baseless false slogans, pretexts, and excuses. We say to them: ‘The venue for resistance and Jihad is not the Yarmouk refugee camp. Whoever wants resistance, whoever wants Jihad, the direction for Jihad is well-known and clear. Everyone knows it. I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know where Jihad is supposed to take place. [Applause from the audience] I don’t think that there is anyone who doesn’t know to where we should direct efforts or where to concentrate the masses. I don’t think there is anyone who doesn’t know this. Those who send young people to Syria or elsewhere to die for a misdirected cause must stop and understand that Jerusalem is still waiting. Jerusalem is the direction, Jerusalem is the address. [Abbas and audience applaud.] A compass that does not point to Jerusalem, Muhammad has nothing to do with it. Put an end to your ignorance, and recognize that you [those fighting in Syria] are nothing more than small tools in a game [controlled by] malicious hands that are running a filthy game to crush the Ummah (Islamic Nation) and diminish it, and deflect the compass, away from its true direction.”

I swear in a God, beside whom there is no other God, that the end of the tyranny and the tyrants is near. This occupation and its growths and creations that wish to spread corruption in our land… We tell them all, the occupation and the occupation’s instruments and any who serve the occupation: ‘Await for us except one of the two best things’ – we, Allah willing, [will be] either Martyrs or victors on our land.

Therefore, brothers and sisters, we are at the brink of a period of global Islamic culture, whose fuel is Gaza, whose spearhead is Gaza, its Jihad fighters (Mujahideen) and commanders are Gaza, Allah willing…

Have you not despaired after 20 years of negotiations? When you all agree and are led by a group that negotiates (does not complete sentence). How many people call Dr. Muhammad Shtayyeh (member of the PLO negotiating team, -Ed.) and any negotiator [and ask]: ‘What’s new with the negotiations?’ They tell them: ‘[It’s] tired, standing still, we sit with the Jews, we talk about this and that and that’s all.’ Well, enough!

Therefore, we say to you, with all our heart, come to us so that we will train you anew, so we will reorganize your faith, so [we will] rebuild your thinking. We are the Prophet’s pupils, the Caliphs’ pupils and we are the pupils of the respected leaders throughout history…

     “Hatib ibn Abi Balta'ah, may Allah’s grace be upon him, one of the greatest companions of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon Him, was present at [the Battle of] Badr (in 624 CE, a key early Muslim victory) and was one of the Messengers of the revered Prophet, as well as one of the best archers in battle.
He was sent by the Prophet, peace be upon Him, to Cyrus [of Alexandria], leader of the Copts in Egypt, and Hatib said of this meeting: ‘I told Cyrus: “Before you, there was a man who claimed to be the supreme ruler (an allusion to Firaoun, the Pharaoh who appears in the Quran), and Allah punished him in this world and in the next, and was revenged through him and later took revenge on him. Learn a lesson from your peer and do not act in a way that he learns a lesson from you.” Cyrus did not get angry, but gave an answer [befitting] a wise man with experience in life. Cyrus said: “We have our religion and will not forsake it unless it is for something even better.” I said: “We are calling you to the religion of Allah, Islam, for the Prophet Muhammad, peace and prayer be upon Him, called the people [to convert to Islam], and the most aggressive towards Him were the Quraish (Muhammad’s tribe which rejected him as a prophet), [and] the ones most hostile to Him were the Jews, and the ones closest to Him were the Christians.’”

All the world's Christians – who are now running after Israel – all of them know that Jesus was a Palestinian and that the Church of the Resurrection (i.e., the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem) and the Gethsemane Church are Palestinian. And praying Muslims didn't pray until after Muhammad made the Night Journey from the Sacred Mosque (in Mecca) to the Distant Mosque (Al-Aqsa, in Arabic) and ascended to heaven and descended and prayed with the prophets.
