Violence and terror
After demonizing Jews and Israelis, including citing Islamic sources that depict Jews negatively, and culminating with ongoing lies and libels that portray Jews as an immediate threat to Palestinian life and existence, the Palestinian Authority foment violence against Jews and Israelis, presenting it as legitimate and even heroic self-defense.

PA terror promotion takes many forms. Nationalistically, the PA actively elevates violence as a valid and heroic means to achieve political goals, while religiously, fighting and killing Jews has been presented repeatedly by PA religious and academic leaders as Allah’s will. On the social level, Palestinian leaders and society honor even the most loathsome of murderers portraying them as heroes and role models: Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in which 37 were killed, has schools, summer camps, and many other events and places baring her name to immortalize and glorify her and her terror attack.

The success of the PA’s promotion of violence is readily evident: A majority of Palestinians support killing and suicide terror against civilian Jews and Israelis. A poll conducted after the murder of eight teenagers who were studying in a Jerusalem high school in 2008, found that 84% of Palestinians supported the murder [NY Times, March 19, 2008, citing the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research].


This violent image of a dagger being thrust into the Star of David has appeared hundreds of times in a video clip for children on PA TV, from 2001 – 2008.

Hamas TV on claimed kidnapping of Israeli soldier: "‎Joy and particularly good news for the Palestinian Resistance!" 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 22, 2014
Al-Aqsa TV host: “Joy and particularly good news for the Palestinian resistance (i.e., ‎Hamas). Now the occupation is forced – despite its attempts to hide and not publicize ‎‎[it], and despite the fact that the Qassam [Brigades’] announcement was a painful ‎surprise for them, and the Zionist occupation looked for all kinds of excuses, counting ‎the name of the [kidnapped] soldier among those killed, and then removing his name ‎and picture – now it is forced to admit that there is a missing soldier in the hands of the ‎resistance.” ‎
Hamas song mocks Israeli MIA Oron Shaul 
Source: Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas), July 22, 2014
Hamas TV broadcast a song celebrating their claimed kidnapping of missing Israeli soldier Oron Shaul. Shaul was declared MIA after his Armored Personnel Carrier was destroyed during combat in Gaza on July 17, 2014. Hamas claimed to have kidnapped him. On Friday, July 26, 2014, the IDF declared that Oron Shaul was 'a soldier killed in action whose burial site is unknown.'  The song opens with a fictitious phone call of someone trying to call the missing soldier:


 
[Phone rings]

(Israeli:) "Hello?"
(Hamas:) "Yes."
(Israeli:) "Am I speaking to Shaul Oron?"
(Hamas:) "What Shaul, my dear? You are talking to the Resistance. The number you dialed is temporarily kidnapped, thank you. Sincerely, the Palestine Defense Forces."

SONG BEGINS:
"Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
We've taken a second [Gilad] Shalit, a young, blond-haired boy
Congratulations on this Ramadan victory. This is the most beautiful holiday gift.

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
6092065 is poor Shaul's number - the Palestinians broadcast it.
Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
Get out of here [Israelis] wherever you are, your face is changing colors...

Hurray! Hurray! The self-sacrificing fighters did it!
Netanyahu, before you go to sleep, go to the toilet
Put a rubber sheet under the blanket and have the potty next to you!"

PA TV reporter in Gaza: "Fireworks" and "celebrations" greet news of Hamas' claimed kidnapping 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, July 21, 2014
Official PA TV report from Gaza:‎
Official PA TV host:
“Yesterday, the resistance announced that it had captured an ‎Israeli soldier. How did the people on the street in Gaza receive this news, in light of ‎the disaster in Gaza… how has this news affected the mood on the street in Gaza?”‎
Official PA TV reporter: “Not only the mood on the street in Gaza [has been affected]: ‎The news has affected all Palestinians in all areas, in the West Bank and in the Gaza ‎Strip – meaning: There was widespread joy, a feeling of satisfaction… We received the ‎news while we were in the Al-Shifa Hospital, and this rear courtyard [indicates the ‎courtyard] literally became a courtyard of celebration: Cheers, shouts of ‘Allah is ‎greater’, cries of joy over this achievement, this achievement of the Palestinian ‎resistance (i.e., Hamas) – especially because most of the people here in the Al-Shifa ‎Hospital are from among those who suffered from the Shuja’iya massacre (i.e., civilian ‎casualties from Israeli bombing of Hamas’ terror infrastructure and tunnel network)… ‎We’ve seen wounded people leaving their rooms [and coming] to this courtyard to ‎celebrate this revenge, as they call it – the revenge of the Palestinian resistance for ‎this massacre. There was great joy indeed; and there were also [celebratory] shots fired ‎into the sky, as well as fireworks, through which the public expressed its great joy over ‎this achievement, and they hope there will be an additional achievement (i.e., ‎kidnapping), so that [pauses] – a small contribution on the part of the resistance, to ‎restore some of the rights of the citizens who suffered so much in Shuja’iya.”‎

In October 2011, the Israeli government agreed to release 1,027 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prison in exchange for Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who had been held hostage by Hamas for more than 5 years.

The following section documents responses to the Shalit deal as reported in Palestinian media:
PA leader: "When they kidnapped [Gilad] Shalit, we congratulated them" 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 2, 2014
Deputy-Secretary of Fatah Central Committee, Jibril Rajoub: "If Hamas wants to kidnap soldiers, let them kidnap soldiers. Let them kidnap. Let them kidnap if they [the Israelis] don't want to release prisoners, but want them as prisoners forever, so [the prisoners] will come out as ghosts and skeletons. The Israelis need to understand. It's clear that kidnapping is the language they understand. On the contrary, we encourage them [Hamas]. When they kidnapped [Gilad] Shalit, we congratulated them. When they concluded the Shalit [exchange] deal, in spite of our having a few reservations about it, we also congratulated them."

PA TV filler expresses support for Shalit kidnapping

PA TV filler On this Day:
     “On this day in 2006, Palestinian fighters (i.e., Hamas terrorists) attacked an Israeli border post, causing the death of two Israeli soldiers. But more importantly, the fighters succeeded in capturing an Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit. This occupied the world for six years. Tel Aviv took advantage of this and imposed a strangling blockade on the Gaza Strip in addition to launching a destructive war at the end of 2008, but they failed to get him [Shalit] back until an agreement was reached with Hamas who had been holding Shalit. More than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners were released by terms of this [agreement].”

     "We are now at the beginning of the third month of the broad Israeli aggression against our people, its unity, its reconciliation and its national project. The occupation (i.e., Israel) planned this aggression, which began on June 12, after the failure of peace negotiations [with the PA]...
The aggression began on June 12 following a fabricated event for which no one took responsibility, that is, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teens."

Song: "Under the rock, O hawk,
hide your prey - a child
Your brothers in captivity (i.e., in Israeli prisons) tell you to keep him...
You are from Hebron, O hawk, and all are proud of you...
By Allah, O brother, I won't rest until you see light, until I see you free...
With the rifle open the [prison] cell
Kidnap soldiers till we free my brothers...
Allah will strengthen your faith
The homeland’s sun is singing your name...
The joy of the Loyalty of the Free must return (i.e., exchanging 1,027 prisoners for the kidnapped Israeli soldier Shalit)."

Official PA daily: Netanyahu "invented" a kidnapping "story" out of a "crazed ambition" to prevent a Palestinian state 
Source: Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 16, 2014
Op-ed by Yahya Rabah, columnist for the ‎official PA daily and a member of the ‎Fatah Leadership Committee in Gaza
‎     “Israel, which embarked on this war over a ‎month ago – [this war] which culminated ‎in a bloody attack in Gaza ten days ago – ‎had been negotiating with the PLO, and ‎these negotiations were being conducted ‎with the mutual consent of both sides and ‎under the patronage of Israel’s greatest ‎ally, the US…‎
But suddenly, Netanyahu overturned the ‎table, torpedoed the negotiations, and ‎invented, together with his [security] ‎forces, a vague story – the kidnapping and ‎murder of the three Israeli youths – and ‎Israel hastily and madly initiated a war that ‎had been planned [from the start].‎
Why? Why torpedo the negotiations? Why ‎this frenzied and bloody attack? ...‎
Netanyahu ‎wants to circumvent the idea of the ‎Palestinian state and remove from ‎discussion the section on the [Palestinian] ‎state. Are he, his army and his state ‎capable of realizing this crazed ambition? ‎I say to you: No, a thousand times no, ‎because Israel – with whom we have ‎chosen [the path of] peace and ‎negotiations – knows that there is always ‎another option! This is what Israel’s ‎founding leaders knew, and this is what ‎‎[today’s] Israeli leaders know, despite their ‎racist madness – and Israel’s allies know it ‎‎[too].‎
There is always another option: the option ‎of violent struggle, the armed struggle. ‎And this is a legitimate option for a people ‎under occupation. We, the Palestinians, ‎have been among the most prominent ‎symbols [of armed struggle] in the world."‎
