Violence and terror
Case study: Dalal Mughrabi, from terrorist to hero
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.

Case study: Dalal Mughrabi, from terrorist to hero
Terrorist Dalal Mughrabi led the most deadly terror attack in Israel's history. 37 civilians, 12 of them children, were killed in her 1978 bus hijacking. The Palestinian Authority has turned this terrorist into a celebrated hero and role model, as schools, summer camps, and sports tournaments are all named after her. Her attack was celebrated by a Fatah spokesman as "the most glorified sacrifice action in the history of the Palestinian-Israeli struggle." [Al-Ayyam, July 13, 2008] Palestinian newspapers also frequently glorify Mughrabi, as in the Al-Ayyam article which described Mughrabi as writing "the most glorious page of heroism in the history of the Palestinian struggle. [Aug. 2, 2009] The PA celebrated the 31st anniversary of the killings with an hour-long TV special, which opened with the narrator glorifying the attack. Advisor to Mahmoud Abbas, Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Revolutionary Council, Sabri Saidam said on the day of the naming of a square in her name: "Every one of us has tried in his own way to express his pride in this Martyr [Mughrabi]."

Official PA TV program Palestine This Morning interviewed the director of the social institutions in Beirut, Lebanon, Muhammad Dabdoub, who spoke about Mother’s Day.
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “The month of March is the month of sacrifice and loyalty. [The anniversary of] the death of sister Dalal Mughrabi as a Martyr (Shahida) is in the month of March; [the [anniversary of] the Battle of Karameh is in [March]; Mother’s Day and International Women’s Day are in [March].”
PA TV host: “And [the month] ends with Land Day.”
The director of the social institutions in Beirut, Muhammad Dabdoub: “And it ends with Land Day. For us, the true mother is the land that gave birth to the Martyrs (Shahids) and gave a great deal. No matter how much we give [the land], we will never [entirely] fulfill our duty to it.”

Note: 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.
The Karameh battle, or Al-Karameh - In 1968, Israeli army forces attacked the Al-Karameh village in Jordan, where Fatah terrorists were launching attacks on Israel. Arafat used the event for propaganda purposes, declaring the battle a great victory that erased the disgrace of the 1967 Six Day War defeat.
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. Israeli Arabs and Palestinians consider it a national day.

Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Jan. 1, 2014
An episode of the PA TV program Palestine this Morning discussed the role of women in Palestinian society and hosted Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad.
1st PA TV host: “During the Palestinian revolution and its history, the woman was this struggle’s important and essential element... She participated in all aspects of the struggle, and in fact proved that she is an element worthy of a prominent place in Palestinian society and that she is part of the important history of this great nation.”
2nd PA TV host: “On this occasion, we will recite a stanza from a poem that reads: ‘On the eleventh of March, a Saturday, an Arab self-sacrificing fighter emerged from the waves, and the dark-skinned Arab [woman] Dalal [Mughrabi] set out and cried: ‘My country, my country, my country!’”
1st PA TV host: “Dr. Amal, throughout Palestinian history, the woman had an important role in the armed struggle... How would you describe the role of the Palestinian woman in recent years?”...
Fatah Central Committee member Amal Hamad: “The Palestinian woman was a partner in the struggle. She carried the rifle, she was on the front lines…Dalal Mughrabi was at the front lines, she led men in the battle of defiance and in the resistance against the occupation... She led a quality operation (i.e., terror attack) in the Palestinian Interior (i.e., Israel). She killed dozens of Israeli army officers, and she was the leader of this operation. She led men. She is a source of pride in her struggle, her history, her giving and her sacrifice. The woman was a [role] model in the national struggle and this role model is now being copied, and [students] learn about it at the world’s universities.”
