Headline: “Jerusalem won”
     “The occupation did not make do with closing the Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacking its gates, but also carried out acts of defacing and theft of historical manuscripts, sweeping away soil from around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, uprooting trees, and removing ancient stones from the Lion’s Gate and the alleys of the Old City [of Jerusalem], and it also allowed extremist settlers to invade the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas (sic., Israel temporarily closed the Temple Mount following a terror attack there and reopened it with security measures; see note below).
However, thanks to the blood of those who died as Martyrs (Shahids), were wounded, arrested, beaten, and dragged on the ground and in the alleys of Jerusalem; thanks to the throats of those who opposed and remained until the light of morning; thanks to those who withstood the sounds of the bullets, the ambulances, the shouts, and the curses; and thanks to those who distributed food and water to the worshippers and those awaiting victory, Jerusalem won.”

Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 1, 2017
     “The Democratic Front [for the Liberation of Palestine] condemned the crime committed by the occupation forces early yesterday morning (Friday) [June 30, 2017], when they removed the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31) in the center of Jenin, following the wild incitement campaign that [Israeli] occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu led personally. The Front said in a statement published by its Jenin district branch that the occupation forces’ actions constitute a… crime whose purpose is to appropriate the Palestinian national memory and harm the supreme value of the ‘Martyr,’ which is rooted in the experience of our people and its national culture… In its statement, the Front promised that our people and its living forces will thwart these attempts, as has been proven by the popular stand throughout the homeland, the diaspora, and the foreign lands, by which all the streams of our people and its leading activists have expressed adherence to the value of the Martyrs and pride in their heritage and status, as all members of our people, throughout its generations, are proud of it. [The Front] emphasized that Khaled Nazzal, a member of its path, and all of the fighters for Palestine’s freedom and independence, will live on forever in the souls of the members of their people.”

Official PA TV narrator on Buy Time in Jerusalem:
"Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Central Committee member Omar Mahmoud Al-Qassem - one of the symbols of the national prisoners’ movement, and one of its central founders. During his life, he was an outstanding leader, a ferocious fighter, and a proud prisoner, and in his death he is an eternal Martyr... One of his acts of heroism [was] when an armed DFLP squad carried out the Ma’alot operation in the Galilee (i.e., terror attack, 26 murdered) and took [an Israeli] building and hostages. 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."

Op-ed in PA daily glorifies "Martyrs," condemns Israel for demanding monument to terrorist be taken down 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 25, 2017
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.”

At the time, the Mandate police (sic., court) sentenced 26 Palestinians who took part in defending the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., took part in the Hebron Massacre) to death. 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."

The movement said that it thinks that the goal of the [incitement] campaign is to disrupt the president's meeting with US President [Donald] Trump, which is expected to take place on May 3 [2017] at the White House,
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.'"
