Psychologist Jultan Hijazi: "After 1967, the role of women evolved from an institutional stage to a stage of struggle and self-sacrifice. We saw many examples of this, such as Laila Khaled (i.e., participated in 2 plane hijackings), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., led murder of 37), and Fatima Barnawi (i.e., placed bomb in cinema) who was the first female Palestinian prisoner. These women, through their operations, recorded wonderful acts of heroism that the generations still see as an example... The women also had a role in the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2015 (i.e., terror wave, 2015-2016), and we saw how women attacked the Israeli soldiers at checkpoints in stabbing operations... I want to mention the mother of Martyr Muhammad Farahat (i.e., murdered 5), a Martyr from Gaza. In 2002, I think, she led him to the gate of the Israeli settlement where he carried out a military operation and killed several soldiers (sic., murdered 5 students)... As a mother, I am incapable of doing what she did, but she constitutes an example for the struggle, and she succeeded in strengthening the national values... Women carry out a large role in the children's psychological preparation."

The [Israeli] prison management summoned Al-Qassem... and asked him to talk with the self-sacrificing fighters so they would turn themselves in and release the hostages... When he turned to his comrades, he said: ‘‘O comrades, I am Omar Al-Qassem. Carry out what you came for. Your enemy is treacherous.’’ Immediately after his few words, his comrades responded to the call and blew up the military academy (sic., Netiv Meir Elementary School) so that their souls would float as Martyrs above the skies of Palestine."

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
        “One of the new examples of the persecution of the living (i.e., eternal) Martyrs as part of Israeli policy is the government of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s threat to invade Jenin if the [Jenin] Municipality and [Jenin] District refuse to remove the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)... It would appear that there are those who almost submitted to the Israeli extortion, on the pretext of profit-loss considerations... The Martyr Nazzal monument, which was restored by members of the Jenin branch of the Fatah Movement, reflects the conscious and responsible national will, which understands the severity of the structural flaw in the outlook of those who almost damaged the Palestinian narrative (i.e., who temporarily removed the monument due to Israeli pressure). [Those people] did not grasp the dangerous consequences of their wretched step when they acceded to Israel’s will and [the will] of those who act like Israelis, because they are short-sighted and did not see beyond their noses. Therefore, well done fighters of Fatah and the national activity factions, who mobilized to defend the heroic Martyr Khaled Nazzal monument.”

Later it lightened the sentences of 23 of them to life, but left the death sentence against Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir in place… The day before their execution, the three heroes wrote a letter in which was stated: ‘Now, as we stand before the gates of eternity and give our souls for the holy homeland, precious Palestine, we ask of all Palestinians that our spilled blood and our souls – which will hover in the skies of this beloved land – not be forgotten.’”

Op-ed in PA daily glorifies "heroism" of terrorist "Martyrs": Palestinians “will elevate their names,” name institutions after them

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, a regular columnist for the official PA daily

      "The Martyrs (Shahids) of the Palestinian Arab people are the symbols of the national struggle. With their great sacrifices they illuminated the path to freedom, independence, and the return [of the refugees], which still continues. The leaders and citizens are in awe of them, as they have defended the just national goals for which they paid with their lives, and for which the [Palestinian] people will continue its struggle until they are fully achieved... Whoever thinks that the Palestinian people can deny their heroic Martyrs is mistaken - children, women, men, and elderly – and primarily the Martyr leaders, the Palestinian national symbols... Out of respect for them, their acts of heroism, and their pioneering in the liberation struggle, and out of pride in their national status, the Palestinian people and its leadership will elevate the names of the Martyrs in the skies of Palestine, and memorialize them by naming squares, universities, schools, streets, cultural centers, and sports clubs after them – even in Arab states, friendly states, and everywhere possible. The people and its national leadership will not fear the sword of terror of Israel, the US, and those who follow them. They will record their struggle on the golden pages of the history of the Palestinian people."

In a statement published by the branch's Commission of Information, Fatah said: 'While the movement strongly condemns the onslaught of inciting lies against President Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian leadership, it believes that the families of the Palestinian Martyrs, prisoners, and wounded are symbols of our legitimate national struggle and the conscience of the Palestinian people, and that they are victims of the Israeli occupation and its daily actions, which have deviated from all norms and violated all international laws.’
The movement emphasized: 'The Israeli occupation is the symbol and height of terror, and [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and his racist government are the last ones that can talk about terror, as the acts of his government against the prisoners, children, holy sites, women, and Palestinian land, in addition to the fact that he funds the attacks of the settlers and the occupation soldiers, are the best testimony to the racism and fascism by which this government is characterized.'"

Official PA TV program Israeli Media in the Spotlight, on a report on Israeli Channel 1 revealing recordings of the negotiations with the terrorists from the 1975 Savoy Hotel attack
Official PA TV host: "The Israeli military censorship allowed the publicizing of a film that contains testimony being publicized for the first time of a senior Israeli officer who participated in the attack (i.e., rescue mission) against the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv while an armed squad of the Fatah Movement held Israeli hostages in 1975 in order to free Palestinian and Arab prisoners. The occupation army chose to attack the self-sacrificing (Fida'i) squad and a fierce battle took place during which a number of [Israeli] soldiers were killed, including a senior officer in addition to 7 dead [civilians] and the deaths as Martyrs (Istish’had) of the attacking squad." …

Official PA TV narrator: "The Savoy operation was the first attack the Palestinians carried out by infiltration from the sea, when the squad left the coasts of Lebanon and arrived and infiltrated Tel Aviv. The mastermind of the operation was Martyr Abu Jihad Khalil Al-Wazir (i.e., terrorist, responsible for the murder of 125), in order to avenge Israel's assassination of three PLO leaders (i.e., terrorists Kamal Adwan, Kamal Nasser, and Abu Yusuf Al Najjar, killed by Israeli forces in April 1973), and to release the prisoners."

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...

The homeland’s wound has been healed by your blow [against Israel]."

This sentence was given after the court convicted Mar’i of aiding Martyr (Shahid) Muhannad Halabi (i.e., terrorist, killed 2), who died as a Martyr when he was shot and killed by the occupation in the Old [City of] Jerusalem approximately 14 months ago.”

Abd Al-Aziz Mar’i was sentenced to 35 years for initiating, planning and convincing terrorist Muhannad Halabi to carry out his stabbing attack in which he on Oct. 3, 2015 murdered 2 Israelis by stabbing them to death and injured two others.

Muhannad Halabi

Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

He participated in the first security session that the Fatah Movement sent to Cairo. He participated in the establishment of the Security and Surveillance force in Jordan together with Salah Khalaf 'Abu Iyad.' He was part of the leadership of the security force of the Palestinian revolution. He participated in leading of some of the special and quality operations (i.e., terror attacks), and was the head of the Black September organization’s department of operations and assassinations. He came up with the idea for the Munich operation (i.e., terror attack, 11 murdered), and under the false name 'Talal' he was directly responsible for the squad that carried it out."

Fakhri Al-Omari – a Fatah member and a founding member of the Black September terror organization and top aide to Salah Khalaf, one of the founders of Fatah and the head of Black September. Fatah credits Al-Omari with being the one who conceived the idea of the 1972 Munich Massacre in which 11 Israeli Olympic athletes were murdered, and states that he participated in its planning. Al-Omari and Salah Khalaf were assassinated on Jan. 14, 1991 by Khalaf's bodyguard, who it is commonly assumed was recruited to do so by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.

Official PA TV reporter:Where Will I Find Someone Like You, Ali. That is the name of a play dealing with the story of Martyr (Shahid) Ali Taha [Abu Snina] (i.e., terrorist, hijacked plane), which has passed from generation to generation and established his character in the [public ] consciousness as a freedom fighter. However, there are other anonymous heroes in the story, whose humanitarian struggle is followed in the play…
The family lost its son, who fell as a Martyr, and he became a hero, symbol, and extraordinary man, and indeed that is what he is, but he is first of all a man who left behind a wife and children and a family.”

Ali Taha Abu Snina – a terrorist who participated in the hijacking of Sabena flight 571 from Vienna to Tel Aviv in May 1972. When the plane landed in Israel, the terrorists demanded the release of 315 Palestinian terrorists from Israeli prisons. Israel mounted a rescue operation led by Ehud Barak (who later served as Israeli Prime Minister), in which current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu participated. During the rescue the two male hijackers Abu Snina and Abed Al-Aziz Atrash were killed, and one passenger, 22-year-old Miriam Anderson, was also killed accidentally. The two female hijackers, Rima Tannous and Theresa Halsa, were captured and sentenced to life imprisonment – Halsa for 220 years. They were released in November 1983 in a prisoner exchange.

     "The [PA] Ministry of Information stated in a notice yesterday [Sept. 28, 2016] that the Al-Aqsa Intifada (i.e., PA terror campaign 2000-2005) is one of the milestones in our national and legal struggle to get rid of the occupation…
The ministry emphasized in the announcement for the 16th anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada that the fact that the popular uprising broke out in order to defend the first direction of prayer (i.e., Jerusalem), the second mosque, and the third 'sanctuary' (i.e., the Al-Aqsa Mosque), proves the depth of our people’s adherence to their Islamic and Christian holy sites, and this is the ongoing daily defense as part of which we stand with [bare] hands against the invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the extremist gangs under the protection of the army of the occupation and its police…
The ministry in its statement encouraged the national, Arab and foreign media outlets operating in Palestine to mention the anniversary of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, and to note the state terror that Israel has perpetrated and still perpetrates against our people, and to bring back the stories of the Martyrs (Shahids), the injured, and the prisoners, who guard the freedom of Palestine with their blood, chains, and suffering."

The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an "invasion." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock.

How long the separation was [due to] the jailer, and how you dreamed of embracing him in peace and security, and God’s decree arrived, and he left the grip of the jailer so that you will accompany him as a groom to Paradise (i.e., Martyr's funeral is considered wedding to the 72 Virgins in Paradise in Islam).”

Yasser Dhiab Hamdouni was serving a life sentence for participating in the murder of Israeli citizen Avner Maimon in the Palestinian town of Ya'abad in the West Bank (June, 12, 2003).

: “On the birthday of the Martyr (Shahid) – an oath of existence and not of absence”
   “The family of Martyr (Shahid) Muhammad Ali yesterday [June 28, 2016] celebrated his 20th birthday, a birthday in which everyone was present aside from the one who was born on it, the new Martyr, the pulsing spirit in constant life, a birthday unlike any other birthday... The family of Martyr Muhammad chose the most beautiful picture that could have been placed on the print of the cake that was prepared for the celebrations of the Martyr’s birthday, a picture of the courage that the Martyr showed when he carried out a quality operation (i.e., terror attack) at the Damascus Gate in occupied Jerusalem on Oct. 12 (sic., the attack was on Oct. 10) last year [2015], which is to say at the start of the ongoing popular uprising (Palestinian euphemism for several months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis 2015 - 2016 -Ed.). Maybe if Martyr Muhammad had the right to choose a picture of his, he would have chosen this indescribable beauty, he would have chosen what others would not have chosen on their birthdays, he would have chosen that his birthday be a moment of new birth, a moment of heroism accompanied by death as Martyrs, a moment of existence and not of absence.”

The picture on the cake is of terrorist Muhammad Ali stabbing a border policeman in the head, along with the text: “Muhammad Ali, commando fighter of the knives.”

     “Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki said that the fact that the heroic Martyrs (Shahids) Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir competed among themselves to [be the first to] merit the honor of dying as Martyrs for Palestine is proof of their rare and unprecedented courage…
In an interview with Radio Mawtini (radio station of Fatah's Information and Culture Commission -Ed.) today [June 18, 2016]…Zaki described the Martyrs Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir as symbols of honor and heroism for all Arabs.

     “On June 17, 1930, the British Mandate authorities executed the heroes Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir at the citadel prison in Acre, despite Arab protests and condemnations.
The story of the three heroes began when British [Mandate] police forces arrested a group of young Palestinians over the Al-Buraq rebellion (i.e., the 1929 Hebron Massacre), that began when the herds of settlers organized a widespread demonstration on Aug. 14, 1929, for ‘the anniversary of the destruction of Solomon’s Temple’ (i.e., Tisha B'Av), as they call it. The day after, Aug. 15, they held a large and unprecedented demonstration in the streets of Jerusalem until they reached the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., the Western Wall), and there they began to sing the ‘national Zionist anthem,’ while cursing the Muslims.
The next day, Friday Aug. 16, Prophet [Muhammad’s] birthday, the Muslims came out in their masses, including the three heroes, to protect the Al-Buraq Wall which the Jews planned on taking over, and the clash between the Arabs and the Zionists became inevitable in the various Palestinian areas... After the Mandate authorities determined that the execution of these heroes would be carried out on June 17, 1930, the three defied the fear of death which had no meaning for them, but rather the opposite – the three competed among themselves to be the first to meet their Lord.”

Op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, columnist for official PA daily and advisor to former PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on national affairs
     “The Israeli incitement against the Palestinian leadership and people encompasses all aspects of life, and it is biased incitement that has no basis in real facts, but twists the facts, falsifies and mixes up information, moving away from the basic pillars of the Arab/Palestinian – Israeli conflict. This incitement is based on denying the right of the Palestinian to defend himself and his national narrative, and includes the falsification and distortion of data and quotes, and exaggeration [of some] details at the expense of the main issues. For instance, the Israeli wars and their crimes turn into ‘defense’ of residents on the border, and according to the logic of the Western countries working in coordination with Israel, the equation is reversed: ‘It is Israel’s right to defend itself!’ The occupying state, which maintains a colonial settlement [enterprise], holds arsenals of nuclear, biological, chemical, conventional, land, marine, and aerial weapons, perpetrates all types of killing, destruction and burning of citizens, their fields, their homes, etc., against the unarmed Palestinian people that is subject to occupation for the last 70 years, and has nothing at its disposal but its resolve, rocks, and knives – and yet it [the Palestinian people] is required to ‘condemn’ its struggle, because it is viewed as ’terror’ in the eyes of the capitalist West, the Americans, and the Europeans, and even when the [Palestinian] people marks its annual Martyrs’ (Shahids’) Day, it becomes ‘incitement’ and violence.”

     “About two years ago, Baha Alyan, 22, left his mark by participating in the organization of the activity ‘the longest chain of readers around the walls of Jerusalem,’ and at the beginning of the Jerusalem Intifada (i.e., wave of terror attacks from September 2015 - continuing) he left a different mark by way of the operation (i.e., terror attack) that he carried out together with the [now] prisoner Bilal Ghanem. Baha died in the operation, but his idea did not, and it was adopted by additional young people in Hebron, who promised to continue what he began, and organized a similar activity. (So-called “human chains of readers” were held at the Hebron University, Birzeit University and Al-Quds University –Ed.)
A few months later, Gazan girls revived the idea with the launching of the chain of Palestinian readers that is meant to take place on the upcoming March 3 [2016] in the Gaza port, and thus unite the continuation of the Martyr’s (Shahid’s) dream, and the encouragement of the idea of reading, and to tell the world that a ‘nation that reads’ needs to resist by way of reading as it resists by way of weapons.”

Reporter for Fatah-run Awdah TV: “Baha Alyan began with the longest chain of readers surrounding the walls of Jerusalem. After he died as a Martyr, people began to focus on the importance of supporting Jerusalem and the Jerusalem residents’ resolve through this idea, and the longest chain of readers surrounding the walls of Jerusalem was organized in loyalty to Jerusalem and the soul, [Baha Alyan], who had the idea.”

PMW note: After the Al-Quds University had held a chain of readers, the “Homeland Story” exhibit was opened, a product of the cooperation between the Fatah Shabiba student movement and the student union.  The Awdah TV report shows a sign for the exhibition with a picture of Yasser Arafat in the center and the Jerusalem “Martyrs” at his side: Baha Alyan, Fadi Alloun, Muhannad Halabi, and Bayan Ayman Al-Esseili. Terrorists who have killed a total of 5 Israelis in their 4 attacks.

Reporter: “A group of young Palestinians organized the activity during which children planted seedlings and flowers, one of which bore the name of Martyr Baha Alyan. The message of all Palestinians – if the occupation will not return its splendor (play on words: the Arab word for splendor is baha, the same as Baha Alyan’s name –Ed.) to Jerusalem and the Martyrs to their homeland, we will bring them back through the efforts of this homeland’s people.”

       “A week after Nashat Melhem carried out his operation (i.e., shooting attack killing 3) on Dizengoff [Street, in Tel Aviv], all of the Israeli security forces began searching for the Triangle resident (i.e., a concentration of Israeli-Arab towns and villages adjacent to the Green Line in northern Israel), but to no avail. It was the largest search operation of its kind since 1980... All the questions raised require that the Israeli government, the Israeli Security Agency and police, and the entire security establishment explicitly declare the defeat and failure, and recognize that Martyr Nashat was the hero, not the murderers from the Israeli special units. That is because he carried out the operation calmly, and left the scene peacefully, without making a fuss, in addition to the fact that he did not give the security forces a chance to pursue him or discover his hiding place… Martyr Nashat Melhem won, while they [the Israelis] were defeated, even though he died as a Martyr at the hands of the cowardly Israeli security agents.”

Palestinian expert on PA TV glorifies "Martyr" who murdered 3 civilians: "By himself and with a simple weapon he imposed a closure on the Tel Aviv region" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 9, 2016
Official PA TV program Panorama of the Hour hosts Shaker Shabat, a media figure and expert on Israel affairs

Official PA TV host:
“The Israeli security establishment arrested, or executed, Martyr (Shahid) Nashat Melhem, who conducted the Dizengoff [Street] operation (i.e., terror attack, 2 murdered), after eight days. He disappeared for eight days, and after all that time he was found. [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu praises the police and the Israeli Security Agency on his arrest and execution, which perhaps shows that the Israeli army and Israeli police are the ones who executed Martyr Nashat Milhem. What is your opinion on the change now – clear backing from Netanyahu, and now there is a rule for the [Israeli] security establishment: ‘Not to arrest, shoot him immediately and kill him.’”

Palestinian expert on Israeli affairs Shaker Shabat: “First of all, it must be said that Martyr Nashat Milhem is the 150th Martyr (i.e., since the start of the Palestinian terror wave that was at its height from October 2015 through March 2016), and that’s important, not 149. Secondly, this Martyr has special characteristics; by himself and with a simple weapon he imposed a closure on the Tel Aviv region, the center of Israel, and on the central region, which is called Gush Dan, for around a week. The schools were closed, the tourism in Tel Aviv was nearly eliminated, there are no more travelers on the street. Everyone is cautious, everyone is alert and looking right and left because maybe Nashat will burst out at them.”

[Social media] activists expressed their great anger over this step [by the ministry], which came after the ministry originally added the Martyr’s name to their documents, and raised the number of Martyrs to 150, but afterward they surprisingly omitted him and returned the number to 149. The activists created the hashtag #the_150th_Martyr_despite_your_opposition , and many expressed their condemnation and great anger with it [the ministry’s decision]."

Official PA TV program Good morning Jerusalem hosted Muhammad Alyan, father of Baha Alyan, one of the perpetrators of the terror attack on bus no. 78 in Jerusalem, on Oct. 13, 2015.
Official PA TV reporter: “Every Martyr (Shahid) has a name that was bestowed upon him, especially Baha, who shone (i.e., baha is ‘radiance’ in Arabic) in his life, and continued to shine after his death… The bullet kills the body, not the idea, and that is why Baha will remain present, thanks to his special will (this refers to the “10 commandments for the Martyr” Alyan wrote and posted on his Facebook page 10 months before he died, which Fatah tweeted after his death. –Ed.), distinguishing him from the rest of the Martyrs, and with it he ascended [to Heaven], so that it serves as a will for all Martyrs that will follow.”
Terrorist Baha Alyan’s father: “He did not do it out of hate, but in order to spare human lives. He died so that others will live. I wrote on my [Facebook] page: ‘One flower is picked, or dies, so that thousands of flowers can live. He wants to give life to children, he wants to serve as a role model, not because of the operation (i.e., terror attack) he carried out, [but rather] he wants to serve as a role model in terms of his public activities in the fields of culture and volunteerism.”

Fatah Central Committee member Jamal Muhaisen in video: "Our national unity (i.e., between Fatah and Hamas) is the basis for dealing with the criminal plots being carried out by that racist criminal Zionist entity's government, and with the blind support it receives from the American regime, which insists on remaining the leader of imperialism and international terror, while describing the Palestinian people's struggle for liberty and independence as terror. This, while granting the occupier, that Nazi criminal, a certificate that its crimes against the Palestinian people are self-defense. However, I say to this Nazi occupier, and to the leader of terror, the US: 'We do not expect a certificate of good behavior from you, but rather Shahada (play on words: In Arabic Shahada means both “Martyrdom” - death for Allah - and “certificate” –Ed.) that we receive from Allah, who chooses Martyrs from among us, who are more honorable than all of us.'"

     “All words are meaningless in the face of a mother speaking of the last moments of her Martyr (Shahid) son, especially this time, when the Martyr is the ‘King of the Strawberries!’ And especially in light of the fact that he exchanged the path of the Nablus market for the path of Martyrdom. Suleiman Shahin, 22, from El-Bireh, separated from his family and friends on his special path, and left in their hands first and foremost the responsibility for Palestine, ‘his daughter and his homeland!’
The Martyr’s mother did not stop crying during the interview with the Wattan news agency, and talked of the plans of her son Suleiman, the most beloved to her of her 9 children, 5 daughters and 4 sons, as he did not at all make light of her tears and moments of sorrow, and would not leave for work without her consent.
She says: ‘When Muhannad Halabi died as a Martyr (i.e., murderer of 2), he [Suleiman] asked me why the Martyrs’ mothers cry out in joy at their sons’ funerals. I could not find an answer for him, and afterwards he continued: ‘Will you cry out in joy when I die as a Martyr?’
Martyr Shahin’s mother emphasized that Suleiman often put the care for his daughter Palestine, who was not yet seven months old, in her hands, and always told her that he wanted her [Palestine] to be educated, upright, and religious… Like every groom on his wedding day (i.e., here this refers to day of “Martyrdom”), Martyr Suleiman insisted on shaving his hair, making peace with his friends, and asking after his sister. And the news of his death as a Martyr shocked his childhood friends, who heard the news through the media like everyone else."

Headline: “Baha Alyan – Martyr and intellectual”
     “Baha Alyan, 22, from the village of Jabel Mukaber, stood out among the young people of Jerusalem as an intellectual and a person with initiative, full of energy and good looking, until he was executed by the occupation on the 13th of this October [2015]. He who surrounded the walls of Jerusalem and its streets with thousands of readers in March 2014 (i.e., human chain of Palestinian readers, surrounding the walls of Jerusalem which Alyan helped organize), died as a Martyr a year later. On March 3, 2015, Baha wrote: ‘On the same day I met 10,000 intellectual Palestinians.’ … Baha wrote his ten commandments, the most prominent of which were that no faction should adopt him (i.e., claim he was connected to them), that no one should mourn his death as a Martyr, and that he should not be seen as a number. He commanded love between the people, and not to exhaust his family with questions, as his death as a Martyr was for the homeland. (i.e., reference to post on Facebook written by the terrorist before his attack, see below) Since the bullet kills the body and not the soul, the young men and women of Jerusalem hurried to call to organize a chain of readers every year to honor Baha’s soul. This is because before his death as a Martyr, he sowed the importance of reading and a love of it, and of protecting the homeland with minds, in the minds of the [Palestinian] residents of Jerusalem.”

The 10 commandments of every Martyr:
1. I instruct the factions not to take responsibility for my Martyrdom-death, for my death was for the homeland and not for you.
2. I do not want any posters or T-shirts, as my memory will not only be a poster hanging on the walls.
3. I instruct you not to exhaust my mother with questions meant to win over the sentiments of the spectators and nothing more.
4. Do not sow hatred in my son’s heart. Let him discover his homeland and die for his homeland, and not in order to avenge my death.
5. If they [Israel] wish to demolish my home, let them do so, since the stone is not more precious than the soul created by my God.
6. Do not grieve over my Martyrdom-death, grieve over what will happen to you after I am gone.
7. Do not look for what I had written before my Martyrdom-death, look for what is the reason behind my Martyrdom-death.
8. Do not cry out in my funeral procession or push each other, but be only pure during the funeral prayer, nothing more.
9. Do not turn me into another number you count today and forget tomorrow.
10. I will see you in Paradise.”

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?"

Abbas advisor: "Open all the gates" in conflict against Israel to honor every Martyr "who spilled his pure blood"

Posted to Facebook page of Advisor to PA Chairman Abbas on NGOs and member of Fatah Central Committee Sultan Abu Al-Einein on July 7, 2015, a few days after the death of Muhammad Al-Kusbeh, who participated in throwing stones at an Israeli army force near the Qalandiya refugee camp on July 3, 2015. Al-Kusbeh was killed by gunfire from Israeli soldiers whose vehicle came under attack. Palestinian reports claimed Al-Kusbeh was shot while trying to climb over the separation fence.
     “The thing that causes a feeling of unease in the soul is the Palestinian response to these crimes and acts: The news of the death of a Palestinian as a Martyr (Shahid) no longer motivates the people and doesn’t receive a response appropriate the standing of the Martyr who spilled his pure blood for his homeland and his land… The Martyrs, the injured, and the prisoners are not a topic for debate, but rather cause unity, unity that will increase our motivation to keep the flame of resistance at its peak, as Israel has destroyed all chance of achieving a complete and just peace that would give our people their minimum rights... In the next conflict, we need to open all the gates so the Martyrs will be at peace in their last resting place, so the bereaved mothers will be satisfied, so the wounds of our injured will heal, and so that the prisoners will hold their heads high to Heaven. This nation will not remain silent for long about this piracy and these crimes, while drawing its high motivation from the saying ‘The darkest hours are those before dawn,’ and the dawn of our people will come. It will come when its country is formed, when the land of its homeland is completely liberated, when its hostages return, when the hated occupation is defeated, and its settlers expelled, and Palestine is purified from them and their filth.”

Awdah TV reporter: “Martyr (Shahid) Raed Mustafa Suleiman is the hero of the Al-Mazra’a operation (i.e., terror attack) in Beit Shean, a resident of the village of Beit Safafa in Jerusalem... He and his friends decided to leave the life of ease and join the Palestinian revolution. They infiltrated into Damascus through Iraq. His friends were supposed to carry out a military operation (i.e., attack) in the occupied land. Martyr Raed was not part of this group. He insistently demanded to join, but at the beginning he was refused as he didn’t have enough experience to carry out this operation. He declared a hunger strike until they agreed to his participation in the Al-Mazra’a operation in April 1979, when the members of the group took over an Israeli army base and raised the Palestinian flag over [it]…”

      “The Fatah movement condemned the murder of the youth Amran Abu Dhaim from occupied Jerusalem by the Israeli occupation forces, and also the methodic acts of ethnic cleansing against the residents of the city, which have been increasing since the last [Israeli] elections. Fatah spokesperson, Osama Al-Qawasmi, said in statements to the press that Israel is perpetrating the most evil crimes against humanity in the occupied Palestinian territories, and especially in Jerusalem, where racist policies are implemented - the ethnic cleansing and the most vile racial discrimination - of which the most recent act was the murder of the young Martyr (Shahid) Amran Abu Dhaim… Al-Qawasmi emphasized that all of these racist measures which are being implemented by the Israeli extremist right-wing occupation state are occurring right before the eyes and ears of the international community. This is a mark of shame on the forehead of all international institutions, which stand helpless in the face of the Israeli violations of international and humanitarian law and the insistence of this racial government on continuing its actions which are completely dedicated to the extermination of the Palestinian nation. Al-Qawasmi added that we in the Fatah movement will continue our fight against the Israeli occupation, at whatever cost, and that this murder, destruction, and racism will not prevent us from continuing on our path to achieving our legitimate goals.”

The picture shows terrorists Dalal Mughrabi and Yahya Skaf, who in 1978 took part in the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in which 37 civilians were murdered, 12 of them children.

Posted text: “A picture of Martyr (Shahida) Dalal Mughrabi and Martyr Yahya Skaf in 1978: Fighters who dreamed of freedom and established a state for several hours (i.e., a reference to the bus they hijacked). Compared to them, the fighters of today dream of establishing a committee for managing the Gaza Strip, so as to disconnect it from the homeland (i.e., criticism of Hamas, alleging it seeks a state only in Gaza)!”

Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history, known as the Coastal Road massacre, in 1978, when she and other Fatah terrorists hijacked a bus on Israel's Coastal Highway, killing 37 civilians, 12 of them children, and wounding over 70.

Yahya Skaf – terrorist from Lebanon who participated in the most lethal attack in Israel’s history, the hijacking of a bus led by Dalal Mughrabi in 1978 in which 37 civilians were killed, 12 of them children. Israel maintains Skaf was killed during the attack and that his remains were transferred to Lebanon in the exchange deal with Hezbollah in July 2008, but the Lebanese authorities claim he is still imprisoned in Israel.

Land Day – an annual commemoration of the general strike and demonstrations organized by Israeli Arab residents of the Galilee on March 30, 1976 to protest the Israeli government's decision to expropriate land in the Galilee for security and settlement purposes, which it later implemented. During the protests, demonstrators burnt tires, blocked roads, and threw rocks and firebombs. Six demonstrators were shot and killed by the Israeli army and police. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider Land Day a national day.

Abdullah Azzam - Palestinian co-founder of the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization and the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist organization in Pakistan. Azzam was a proponent of global Jihad and the establishment of an Islamic state. Azzam fled the West Bank in 1967 and reached Saudi Arabia in the 1970s, where he taught Osama bin Laden at King Abdul Aziz University. In 1979 Azzam moved to northern Pakistan where he took an active role leading the fight against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, enlisting bin Laden in the effort as well. Azzam intended to attack Israel and Europe after the Soviet-Afghan War. It remains unclear who was responsible for Azzam's assassination with a bomb in Peshawar, Pakistan, on Nov. 24, 1989.

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."
