     “Milad was like any boy who sees the guys going out. I mean, the boys in Silwan, they don’t want to just go out and play or go to places where there are sports or anything like that. Always, for them, their only game or activity is making Molotov cocktails or throwing rocks. Those are the things that everyone brags about and is proud of doing. Milad always used to go out with the boys. We, of course, didn’t know. Mother sensed a bit that he went out to throw stones and was up to something. And when he came home, he would always say, ‘I didn’t do anything’...
A week before he died as a Martyr, Milad wrote a few posts on Facebook with the guys about yes martyrdom, or no martyrdom, and about the third Intifada (i.e., terror campaign). There was a thing on Facebook [proclaiming] the third Intifada.”

Ayyash's family claims the shots came from a building in a Jewish neighborhood that borders Silwan, but the official Israeli investigation never confirmed the source of the gunfire. Ayyash's family refused to allow an autopsy or to hand over the bullets to investigators.

They enflame my spirit and beat in my veins...

All my Arabness calls me to vengeance and liberation
My flag that was folded in Hattin (Saladin battle in 1187)

Thousands of prisoners and thousands who are jailed
call to this great nation and call to millions

To war that will smash the oppression and destroy the Zionist's soul

And strengthen my word that goes on: Palestinian, Palestinian”

EU-funded NGO glorifies violence and hijackings - on PA TV program for youth 
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Dec. 9, 2012
TV host 1: "People of Israel, don't get caught up in arrogance, the hands on the clock will surely come round.
Theft of the land does not scare us..."
TV host 2: "Expect us always, expect us where least expected.
We're in every airport, and in every ticket.
We emerge in Rome and in Zurich from under the rock.
[Note: Reference to PLO/PFLP hijacking of El Al plane in Rome in 1968 and the attempted hijacking of El AL plane in Zurich in 1969.]
We emerge from behind statues and flowerpots.
Our men arrive without warning, with the fury of thunder and the pounding of rain.
They come in the Prophet's robe and with Omar's sword (Muslim conqueror).
Remember, always remember that America, important as it is, is not Allah the Almighty and Omnipotent, and that America with all its strength will not stop the birds from flying.
A small rifle in the hand of a small boy can kill the big one."
TV host 2: "Good evening, dear viewers... Tonight you have greetings from the Palestinian Youth Association -- PYALARA and from PA TV. Today we greet the NGO Development Center -- NDC that helps us discuss youth affairs."

In response to Hamas' ongoing rocket fire against Israel, on Nov. 14, 2012, Israel launched an aerial offensive aimed at crippling the terrorist infrastructure in Gaza. PA daily sports columnist Bader Maki demonizes Israel and glorifies violence for children in the following open letter:
      "My dear general [Michel Platini], you are currently the president of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), and the Hebrew entity [Israel] is part of this union. Are you satisfied, my brother Michel, that this entity kills our children in Gaza? ...
This cursed entity must be kicked out of this sports union that believes in justice and fair play. The blood of [the children] Ahmed Abu Daqqa and his friends will not have been spilled in vain only if national unity is achieved. We must achieve it to honor the souls of our Martyrs (Shahids), especially those of our children who dazzled the world with only stones and RPGs in their hands. The occupier knows them well from the Intifada and Beirut."

What can I do, Mother, they took my book away
They tied me up, blindfolded me and threw me in a tank
They threw me into a dark room under watch
They wouldn’t let me see you, Mother, and wouldn’t let me see my friends
I longed to go to school and I longed to have my games...
I swear by a child’s tears...
By the blood of the youth
Jerusalem will return to us...
We’ll free every inch from the foreigner's clutch."
