Suicide terror & Shahada
Shahada (Death for Allah) promotion
Motivating suicide terror and Shahada
In order to create willingness among the population to confront Israel violently, the PA presents Shahada - Death for Allah - as a religious Islamic obligation. This indoctrination began shortly after the start of the PA terror campaign (the "Intifada," 2000-2005).
Palestinians are told that Allah desires all of them – men, women and children – to seek death as martyrs, and that it is a privilege to be worthy of dying for Allah. One cleric even warned that if they didn’t seek Death for Allah their Muslim faith was deficient:
Ahmed Abdel Razek, PA Cleric:
“The believer was created to know his Lord - to follow Islam… to be a Shahid (Martyr) or intend to be one. If the believer doesn't hope for Shahada (Death for Allah), he will die a Jahiliya death (without faith). We must aim for Shahada and request it from Allah. If we truthfully ask for it, [Allah] will grant us its rewards, even if we die in bed.”

Official PA TV program One Day We will Return interviews Um Nidal Abu Tarboush, whose husband Musa Ahmad Abu Tarboush was killed by an aerial bomb (possibly Israeli) in southern Lebanon.
Um Nidal Abu Tarboush: “I am very glad that he died as a Martyr (Shahid) for his country, despite the fact that he left me with a family and Allah will take care of me, but I am very proud of him because he’s a fighter and he died honorably as a Martyr for his land by Israel’s hand.”
Official PA TV host: “What is your message to your children?”
Um Nidal Abu Tarboush: “What is my message to my children? I’ll tell them that I am proud of them. I hope that all of my children will die at Israel’s hand as Martyrs, for the honor of the homeland Palestine. They should return us [to Palestine] now; we’ll put up a tent and sit there. Is there any better than the one country?”
PA daily article praises Al-Khansa - 12th century mother who celebrated her son’s Martyrdom 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 7, 2015
From the daily religious supplement during Ramadan
: “Tumadir Bint Amr [Al-Khansa] – the intergenerational poetess”
“When Al-Khansa joined Islam in the eighth year of the Hijra (i.e., the journey of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Medina in 622 C.E.), 630 C.E., when she was in her sixties, her sons and cousins accompanied her to the Messenger [Muhammad] to announce that they had joined the new religion [Islam]. Hadith (i.e., sayings and practices attributed to Islam's Prophet Muhammad) transmitter Muhammad Bin Al-Hassan Al-Makhzoumi states: ‘Al-Khansa was present at the Al-Qadisiyya battle in the 16th year of the Hijra, 638 C.E., together with her four sons. She encouraged them to Jihad, accompanied them with the army during the period of Omar ibn Al-Khattab (i.e., a prominent 7th- century caliph), and advised them: ‘O my sons, you converted to Islam and emigrated by choice. In the name of Allah, besides whom there is no other god, you are the sons of one man, as you are the sons of one woman. I did not cheat on your father, and didn’t embarrass your uncle. I didn’t disgrace their honor, and didn’t alter their pedigree. You might know what the great reward is that Allah has prepared for Muslims in battle against infidels, and know that the eternal home is preferable to the temporary home. Allah says: ‘O believers, stand and resist bravely, stand guard, and fear Allah so you will do well.’ [Quran,] Sura AlAmiran, verse 200. If Allah wishes, you will rise tomorrow, healthy and whole; go fight your enemies with wisdom, and with Allah’s help you will prevail over them…’
When she learned that all of them had died as Martyrs she made her famous statement: ‘Praise Allah, who honored me with their Martyrdom-death. I ask my Lord to unite me with them in Paradise.’”

PA TV: Palestine is a mother who gives birth to Martyrs, mother of Martyr rejects ideal 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, June 8, 2015

PA TV narrator:
“Palestine – a mother that gives birth only to heroes. When she ‎conceives, she says to the baby in her uterus: ‘You were created only to be free or to ‎die as a Martyr’" [...]‎
Mother of “Martyr” Muhammad Al-Qatari: “He always said to me: ‘Mother, I want to die ‎as a Martyr,’ and we would argue... I told him: ‘My Dear, you have grown, I want to ‎marry you [off], Muhammad. We want to rejoice for you, Muhammad.’ He told me: ‘I ‎don’t want to marry. This is it, Mother, I want to die as a Martyr.’ He is the one who ‎wanted Martyrdom (Shahada).”‎
Father of “Martyr” Muhammad Al-Qatari:‎ ‎“I was a little strict with him on this topic... I ‎didn’t want it to happen. Every father, every person, wants to protect his son. As a ‎father, when I bring up my son until the age of 19, of course I don’t want to lose him in ‎one moment...”‎
Friend of “Martyr” Muhammad Al-Qatari:‎ ‎“Muhammad loved Martyrdom very much and ‎loved the homeland for which we sacrifice our lives. He always went to throw stones at ‎the [Israeli] army.”‎
Mother of "Martyr" Muhammad Al-Qatari: "He went to the Qalandiyacheckpoint, where he did not find any problems (i.e., confrontations with the Israeli army). He went to the Ofer [Prison] and saw there weren't any problems [either]. He took his friends and they went to that settlement, the El-Bireh settlement (Psagot settlement near El-Bireh, where there were confrontations, and he was killed -Ed.)"

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mar. 14, 2015
Headline: “The anniversary of [the death of] the Martyrs Mas’oud and Salem’s Martyrdom death coincides with Dalal Mughrabi’s anniversary”
     “Nashat Al-Wahidi, spokesman for the Fatah Prisoners and Ex-prisoners’ Commissariat and coordinator of the National Campaign to Return the Bodies of the Martyrs (Shahids) and the Missing of the Gaza Strip… said that the month of March carried the scent of Martyrs and the smell of the occupied homeland. The 11th anniversary of the Martyrdom-death of heroes Nabil Mas’oud and Mahmoud Salem from the north of the Gaza Strip, who carried out the joint (Fatah and Hamas) Ashdod operation (i.e., suicide bombing attack) in 2004, falls on Saturday, March 14, soon after the [anniversary of the] Martyrdom-death of the Palestinian self-sacrificing female fighter (Fida'ia) Dalal Mughrabi on March 11, 1978, and the International Women’s Day celebrations. Al-Wahidi noted that Martyr Nabil Mas’oud who belonged to Fatah, was born on May 31, 1987, resided in the Jabaliya refugee camp and was originally from the village of Deir Suneid, and Martyr Mahmoud Salem, who belonged to Hamas, was born on December 31, 1986, resided in Beit Lahiya and was originally from the village of Harbiya, united the Palestinian blood and dialects in a quality self-sacrificing (Fida'i) operation (i.e., suicide bombing attack) in Ashdod Port on March 14, 2004, which terrified the occupation, broke the rules of the checkpoints (i.e., succeeded in passing through the checkpoints) and the Israeli sense of safety on land, in the air and at sea.”

Note: Suicide terrorists Nabil Mas'oud from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades (Fatah's military wing) and Mahmoud Salem from the Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas' military wing), carried out a double suicide attack at the Ashdod port on March 14, 2004, killing 10 people and wounding 13.

     "Fatah said that 'loyalty to the Martyrs (Shahids) of Palestine is the most exalted expression of its commitment to the path and to the oath to liberate the land and to persist on the path of truth, which the Martyrs paved with their pure blood.‘ In its statement, published by the [Fatah] Culture and Information Commission today, Wednesday [Jan. 7, 2015], on the occasion of Palestinian Martyrs' Day, the movement added: 'We believe that Martyrdom-death (Istish'had) for Palestine is a destiny we assume willingly and serenely, in order [to attain] a free and dignified life for our people in the paradise of the eternal homeland. In addition, we believe that life is a great opportunity to invest everything in our power for the liberation of the homeland.' [...] The statement said: 'Our goals are the freedom and independence of the Palestinian people. Sacrifice is merely one part of the doctrine of national struggle, the aim of which is to redeem our people and its future generations. Martyrdom-death is our way to ensure the eternity of our people on its land, while it protects its Arab identity and holy places.'
On this occasion, the movement expressed its highest praise, appreciation and recognition to the souls of the Palestinian, Arab and foreign Martyrs who died as Martyrs for Palestine, and to their relatives and children. Furthermore, it swore to remain faithful to their sacrifice until all Palestinians, Arabs and free men around the world witness the establishment of a Palestinian state, and until one of their small boys or girls raises the Palestinian flag over the walls of Jerusalem, the capital of our free and independent state."

Text of song published on Fatah’s Facebook page, “Fatah – The Main Page”:
     “Saddle your horse and raise the flag; When you see Hebron, stop and salute it.
You stand firm, Omar Kharwat
Abu Fahmi, worry not.

Through our right [to Palestine]
We’ll raise the flags
In spite of jail and our worries.
Past and future: gifts to Palestine.

O Hatem, we will give our souls
Will not fear the occupier’s homes(i.e., the Israeli occupation).
O Jamal, challenge their homes;
There is no solution besides revolution.

Rise, O rifle and shout for joy
For the people of Hebron

For the sake of Qawasmi, we won’t kneel [before our enemy]
His resolve will never crumble
For Palestine, sacrifice your life, Muhammad [Qawasmi].
Expand [the revolution] left and right,
Expand [it] for the men of Fatah

Mother, give me a weapon, a machine gun,
My path is the path of struggle
Just like Yasser Sharbati
Even if the blow hurts me
I will not fear death.

Hatem, even if your imprisonment is long
Qawasmi, do not fall apart.
We are faithful to vow of the heroes
And proud of the men of the revolution.
Men, tomorrow you’ll return.
And the sun of freedom will shine.”

     “The national and Islamic factions, forces and activists in the Hebron district took part in [several] well-attended marches yesterday, Friday [Nov. 8, 2014] in support of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. One of the marches, organized by Fatah, left the Al-Hussein mosque after the Friday prayers… under the heading ‘For you, Al-Aqsa.’ Other marches were held in various areas of the district, during which protesters chanted angry slogans against the occupation and calls for support of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, including: ‘Al-Aqsa’s gate is made of iron, only the Martyr’s (Shahid’s) blood will open it,’ and ‘With spirit, with blood, we will redeem you, Al-Aqsa.’ They [the marches] ended with confrontations with the occupation forces… In a speech held during the march organized by [Fatah] in the city, Fatah Secretary in Hebron Imad Kharwat emphasized the importance of uniting in one rank to defend Al-Aqsa from the occupation’s attacks and the settlers’ constantly recurring invasions of its courtyards. Kharwat said: ‘All the Palestinian factions and forces throughout the homeland and the diaspora must awaken to defend Al-Aqsa, which is more exalted than any of these, until the words of our late leader Yasser Arafat are realized: A boy from among our boys and a girl from among our girls will raise the Palestinian flag over the minarets and church towers of Jerusalem.’ Fatah Central Committee member Sultan Abu Al-Einein said: ‘More mass popular activity is required in support of Al-Aqsa, for this mosque is the symbol of unity. It unites and does not divide, and it represents the nation’s honor. Let us fight for it to defend it and liberate it from the occupation’s filth.’”
