Kids on Hamas TV: "We want to die as Martyrs" 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), May 8, 2014

Hamas TV reporter:
For most of these children, resistance has become a dream... When you speak to them, you’re surprised by the strength and eloquence of their words.
Boy 1: We love the resistance. We want to die as Martyrs. Long live the Martyrs...
Boy 2: The Israeli occupation understands only resistance. We always love the resistance, to liberate our nation Palestine. And among us, the Martyrs are loved. Applause for the Martyrs...
Reporter: The atmosphere in the refugee camp is full of the spirit of resistance and of those who inscribed its stories of heroism. Most of the walls show you the images of the Martyrs...
Boy 3: The resistance, the armed resistance is what brings results in the Jenin refugee camp... The Jenin refugee camp continues to educate its children to resist, and passes on the flag to them, from generation to generation. They yearn for one of the two best outcomes – the return to their occupied lands, or Martyrdom.

He is a true reminder for us of [all] the Martyrs and he reminds us of this long path of sacrifice, of the self-sacrificing fighters.
Each day we teach our children what sacrifice for Palestine is. This is the Palestinian people; this is this people’s culture – we always welcome [Martyrs] and part [from them.] We say to the whole world that a nation that lives on the Martyrs and generously sacrifices Martyrs will not lose its direction. It will always be free and proud. It will protect its holy sites and protect its land, every inch of it. It will not abandon , Allah willing. We will always follow the Martyrs’ path.”

PA-associated youth magazine glorifies death: "If you love death... then you're a Palestinian" 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, Sept. 1, 2013
PA-associated educational youth magazine Zayzafuna published for the third time a poem glorifying Martyrdom death for Allah - Shahada:
"If you know that you were born with a death sentence, and if you go to your death without caring - then you're a Palestinian!
If your song is the song of Martyrdom (Shahada), and death, for you, is birth - then you're a Palestinian!
If you love death, and you say the Shahada [declaration] (i.e., the Islamic creed: "There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is Allah's messenger.") aloud - then you're a Palestinian!
If you've ever felt that you're an exploding body and that your soul will long one day to be a knight for the homeland - then you're a Palestinian!
If the stone is your weapon against oppression, and if those who hate [you] criticize your struggle - then you're a Palestinian!
If you have watered the tree of the homeland with your free blood, with love, and have offered the remnants of your bodily parts as a bridge for those who are yet to come - then you're a Palestinian!
If you have shattered the chains, and carried the key to the house from which [your] grandparents were expelled - then you're a Palestinian!
If your wedding (i.e., a Martyr's death and funeral in Islamic tradition are a wedding to the 72 Maidens of Paradise) was amidst a hail of bullets between the shoulders of friends [who carried your body], against the sound of tears mingled with joy and the searing pain of separation - then you're a Palestinian, and you're full of pride at being a Palestinian."

"My mother dressed me in a strange belt (i.e., a suicide belt).
I asked her: 'What is this, mother?'
She said: 'I will put it on you and you will go to your death!'
I said to her: 'Mother, what have I done that you want me to die?'
She shed a tear that hurt my heart and said: 'The homeland needs you, son. Go and blow up the Sons of Zion.'
I said to her: 'Why me and not you?'
She said: 'I will stay in order to give birth to more children for the sake of Palestine.'
I kissed her hand and said to her: 'Keep it up, mother, for you and for Palestine I will kill the impure and the damned.'"

Song directs children to violence and Martyrdom-death 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Feb. 24, 2012
    
"Don't cry, Palestine, stand tall for your heroes. Let the cowards [Israel] see that your kids didn't surrender to fear in the midst of horror. Oh children of the stones, teach the sinners [Israel] that shooting doesn't scare you, that your dignity is preserved, and that death for the sake of the country is not terror.
Terror is the occupier and his helpers, not those who saw and tasted death but were not humiliated, and not the child who nurses fear and expulsion, yet surrenders not. He vows that when he grows up, he will follow the same path. Don't be sad, oh great nation, Allah is with you. Don't be sad with Allah's help."

Girl sings Intifada song about the "Martyr who loved death," PA TV host prefers song about life 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, July 25, 2011
Girl: "I am the voice of the Intifada, and no voice is louder than mine;
I am the last will of the Martyr
who loved death upon the soil of the homeland.
My voice refuses to be silent.
I am the sister of the one
who adorned herself and girded herself with death.
I am the voice of the stone and the tree, the bleeding wounded."

After interviewing other children, the host turned to the girl a second time and asked her to sing a different song:
PA TV host: "Bravo, our friend Bara'a; that was a beautiful song.
We want to hear a song full of life and vitality, because we want to live. We want a beautiful life, we want always to call for all that adorns our life. We want to forget about death for a little while and distance ourselves far from death."

Palestinian kindergarten class performs play called "The Martyr's Wedding"

     "'The Birds of Paradise' kindergarten held a nice graduation party... The ceremony included beautiful performances... one of the most outstanding was a play from the story of Little Red Riding Hood, and another performance named 'The Martyr's (Shahid's) Wedding', delighted the audience by the role-play of the children, whose acting depicted the reality of roadblocks, children, occupation soldiers, and the children's death as Martyrs. This charm caused the audience to cry, as the children's performance was accompanied by the playing of nationalistic songs."

Poem in PLO youth magazine glorifies Shahada: "The mother await[s] her son with love, as a Martyr" 
Source: Zayzafuna magazine, May 1, 2011
Poem written by a girl in 8th grade, published in Zayzafuna youth magazine:
“How sad for the homes destroyed by imperialism,
And a people [the Palestinians] which has no fear of Martyrdom (Shahada)
And never thinks of f leeing,
And a man whose heart is full of hatred and loathing, A cowardly immigrant [Israeli] who seeks stability…
And how sad for occupied Palestine
And for our blessed, neglected Jerusalem
And for our pure, stolen land
And for the sky f illed with clouds of smoke…
And for the prisoner awaiting an Arab liberator
And for the mother awaiting her son with love, as a Martyr.”

“Look at Jerusalem and at the Dome of the Rock [Mosque] Whose moon is high in the sky
Raising its head [in pride] at its sons who have Died as Martyrs for its [the mosque’s] liberation There the mighty Jihad fighter died as a Martyr
And Jerusalem is proud of its heroes who defend it with stones. Oh Jerusalem, do not be sad, for your victory is near
With the song of birds up high
Asking its people to stone the enemy
Oh bride of time
Oh third holy place [to Islam] – we will redeem you with our life
Oh compass of the nation – do not be sad
For your victory is near, Allah willing
Victory, victory, victory, oh city of Jerusalem.”

"When we become Martyrs we'll go to Paradise.
Don't say we're young.
This way of life has made us adults.
...
Without Palestine, what meaning is there to childhood?
Children, you performed the (religious) duty and Sunna (Islamic tradition):
There is no God but Allah, and the Shahid (Martyr) is Allah's beloved.
You have taught us the meaning of heroism.
...
Even if they were to give us this world and all of its treasures, no, it would not make us forget [Palestine]. Not at all.
It is my country and [I give] my blood for its sake."
