"Muhammad, I was told that you died as a Martyr

I want to make cries of joy and say: My son has succeeded
My son has made me proud
My son wanted to be a doctor, yes, he wanted to be a doctor
I need to make cries of joy and to be proud of you, O son."
PA TV host: "Bravo! Bravo and thank you. Blessings to the souls of our heroic Martyrs. Also, my friend, we must defy the occupation by clinging to life. Our lives are part of our resistance. Therefore, my friends, it is very important that we try to protect our lives in the face of the occupier’s actions so that we will grow up and fulfill our hopes, since every mother dreams to see her son or daughter become something important."

Zayzafuna is a PLO magazine for children partially funded by the PA. The magazine, which includes material written by both the magazine’s staff and child readers, represents the values of the educators and serves as a window into the minds of the Palestinian children submitting material to the magazine. Zayzafuna's website states that the magazine's advisory board is comprised of PA officials and educators, including Jihad Zakarneh, PA Deputy Minister of Education, and Abd Al-Hakim Abu Jamous, Head of the Media Department at the PA Ministry of Education. Since September 2015, Zayzafuna included a note on its second page thanking the PA Ministry of Finance for its financial support of the magazine (true as of the time of this writing, May 2016). In May 2011, the Deputy Chairman of the Zayzafuna organization Abd Al-Karim Ziyada explained on PA TV that the PA gives "a monthly payment of 10,000 shekels ($2,700) to cover the magazine's [costs]."

     "[PA] Minister of Education and Higher Education Dr. Sabri Saidam met today [Dec. 15, 2016] in his office with a delegation of families of the Martyrs (Shahids) whose bodies are being held [by Israel], and particularly [families] of school and university students, and discussed with them the steps that the ministry can take in order to raise the issue at the different levels. At the beginning of the meeting, Minister Saidam welcomed the Martyrs' families and opened [the meeting] by reading the opening [Sura] for the souls of the Martyrs. Likewise, he emphasized that the ministry will not be negligent in fulfilling its role regarding the issue of the occupation keeping the bodies, as he believes keeping [the bodies] is not consistent with the international conventions and norms and the principles of religious tolerance.
He noted that the ministry will send notices to all the [PA] education directorates in order to discuss the subject on the school radio stations, and emphasized that the ministry will again emphasize its demands of the international organizations and the human rights organizations to bear their responsibilities in this matter, parallel to the pressure to release the student prisoners."

Media Café, socio-psychological analysis of Palestinian media, hosting sociologist Dr. Nader Sa'id

Sociologist Dr. Nader Sa’id: "The description of some of the Martyrs as if they are something legendary, the description of some of them as if they are something out of this world, and as if they are exceptional cases, gives some youth and children an unrealistic picture of what they are going to carry out."
Official PA TV host: "This subject is a double-edged sword. We owe it to the Martyr and have to praise his heroism and show respect for him and his family. He sacrificed himself - is there anything greater than that? However, what you say is also true. When the children see these pictures and reports, which talk this way about Martyrs, they begin to imagine themselves as heroes like them, and they begin to act on it."

PA daily op-ed opposes sending Palestinian ‎children to be killed 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 24, 2015
Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, regular ‎columnist for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida
Headline: “And Allah knows the intention”‎
     ‏"‏Yesterday we noted how the Israelis ‎managed to connect between the terror of ‎Al-Qaeda and the Palestinian struggle, ‎and started marketing it as terror after the ‎September [11] events in New York, and ‎here [US Secretary of State John] Kerry ‎follows [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] ‎Netanyahu and uses the same description ‎for the outburst of rage against the ‎occupation and its actions, and the ‎struggle of the oppressed [Palestinian] ‎residents of Jerusalem to defend their ‎homes and holy sites is now considered ‎terror... It is true that the action of individuals is ‎not directed [by anyone], and cannot be ‎organized with the click of a button, but ‎public awareness should lead to an ‎organized, moral struggle, rather than an ‎absurd one.‎ Moreover, it should lead to protecting the ‎lives of the children, youth, and young ‎people, as the current stage is not ‎significant, but rather secondary in regard ‎to the history of the struggle, and whoever ‎claims he will move fleets and shake the ‎earth beneath the feet of the occupation, ‎knows the way to do so, even if he does ‎not implement it.‎
However, this is not through ‎encouraging children to [find ‎themselves] shot on a sidewalk. It is also ‎true that we cannot soothe the raging ‎spirits or the boiling blood, but as we said, ‎the general public awareness expressing ‎rejection‏ ‏can create an atmosphere that ‎will reduce being pointlessly dragged into ‎the traps that the occupation sets ‎everywhere, and Allah knows the ‎intention.”‎

PA daily op-ed opposes encouraging children to carry out stabbing attacks and opposes praising death 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Nov. 24, 2015
Op-ed by Hafez Al-Barghouti, regular columnist and former editor for Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
     "It is our duty to prevent our sons and daughters... from carrying out futile acts, which the enemy in his media and diplomacy has begun to link to the acts of the terror organizations in Paris and elsewhere, in order to strip us of our humanity, and play the role of the human. This is while, there is no one else in the world, except for him [the enemy], who boasts about occupying someone else's land and oppressing its owners. Moreover, we should note that after the events of September [11, 2001] in New York, [then Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon copied the term 'terror' used to refer to those attacks, to our national struggle (i.e., terror campaign - Intifada). I warned about this at the time, and called to keep a low profile until the New York turmoil had passed, but the concept of 'Palestinian terror' later spread, instead of [the general term] 'terror.' Now, after the Paris attacks, we must keep a low profile so that we are not charged with the crimes of ISIS and its ilk, because the world is in a coma, and it may not wake up from it anytime soon. We must learn our lessons and wait."

Headline: “Accompanying Martyr Skafi’s body while calling to revenge the Martyrs’ blood”
   “Hundreds of Hebron’s residents accompanied to burial the body of Martyr Ibrahim Samir Skafi, 22, who ascended [to Heaven] from gunfire of the occupation forces, after they left him to bleed [based] on the pretext that he rammed his car into soldiers next to the Al-Hawawir junction, in northern Halhoul, and injured two of them….
Governor of Hebron District Kamel Hamid said during the funeral that the continued holding of the bodies by the occupation stirs up emotions and leaves the area in an impassioned state. Likewise, he noted that there is no excuse to hold bodies, except to exacerbate the violations against our people and its rights.
Mayor of Hebron Dr. Daoud Al-Zaatari emphasized that the occupation forces will not succeed in breaking the will of our young people through the executions they continue to carry out against our young, and emphasized that a people that sacrifices the blood of its young for freedom will win.
Abd Al-Rahim Skafi said in the name of the Martyr’s family that their son is ‘another groom from Hebron, accompanied to his wedding, to Heaven, for the sake of Jerusalem and the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque,’ and emphasized the resolve of our people for its land, and a life of dignity and liberty.”

Ibrahim Samir Skafi – 23-year-old Palestinian terrorist who rammed his car into 3 border policemen at the Halhoul junction near Hebron on Nov. 4, 2015, wounding them. Skafi was shot and killed by soldiers. Border Policeman Benjamin Yakubovich, 19, was mortally wounded in the attack, and died from his wounds on Nov. 8, 2015.

Op-ed by Samaa Hassan, appeared on “The morning tweet” - a daily column with changing authors 
      “I was extremely happy when I saw my young daughter shed tears, as she held her novel mobile phone and watched, using its advanced technologies, a video about one of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs... The stifled tears continued to flow from the little one’s eyes, until suddenly she stood up on the couch as though bitten by a scorpion and shouted: ‘Mom, I want to die as a Martyr. I want to carry out a Martyrdom operation (i.e., terror attack) in order to kill some Israeli soldiers.’
More than they filled me with fear, my daughter’s words filled me with joy, and I felt joyous because I could see myself during the days of the Stone Intifada (i.e., Palestinian wave of violence and terror against Israel, 1987-1993). I was 17 at the time, that is, I was two years older than her, but I had the same youthful, fervent fighting spirit, forged from the love of Palestine, and we would leave school and cheer for Palestine and repeat the one and only slogan: ‘In spirit, in blood, we will redeem you, O Palestine.’"
