Violence and terror
Palestinian responses to terror attacks
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.

Former PA Minister of Prisoners in Hebrew denies PA has policy of incitement, salaries for terrorists, or naming monuments after terrorists 
Source: Wattan (independent Palestinian news agency)‎, Sept. 15, 2017
This is an edited version of Al-Ajrami’s speech. It is only an excerpt, which Wattan, an independent Palestinian news agency, chose to publicize.

Former PA Minister of Prisoners and Released Prisoners’ Affairs Ashraf Al-Ajrami: “Regarding the knifings, and the people who stab, I want you to review what the security forces in Israel are saying. All of the [Palestinian] people who are participating in stabbings are completely against the Palestinian Authority. No one is responding to what is called [PA President] Mahmoud Abbas’ ‘incitement’ or I don’t know what…
Regarding the payments [of the prisoners’ salaries by the PA]... When I was the [PA] minister of prisoners’ affairs in 2007, I refused to implement the law, the law of payments. During my time, no one received a lot of money – [no one received] so much money, because I basically want – that what is important to the prisoners’ family is to live in dignity. In dignity, that [means] a little money…
It isn’t the Palestinian Authority, it is, say, a village or urban council here and there, they name [streets] and – it isn’t the Palestinian Authority, it is the municipalities that do it.”

Israel decided to remove the detectors on July 24, 2017 –Ed.) and carried out an operation at the settlement of Halamish on Friday, July 21, [2017], the village and its residents have been subjected to the most awful Israeli collective punishments.”

PLO official attacks UN Sec-Gen for condemning a stabbing attack that killed 3 Israelis as "empathy towards the settlers, and... silence over the Israeli occupation’s crimes"

This is in light of the fact that UN Secretary-General António Guterres condemned the stabbing operation (i.e., terror attack, 3 murdered) that took place yesterday night, Friday [July 21, 2017], in the settlement of Halamish, west of occupied Ramallah, and led to the deaths of 3 settlers and the wounding of 4 (sic., 1 wounded)."

Spokesman of PA Security Forces: Settlers' "entry" to Al-Aqsa Mosque is cause of violence, denies Jewish connection to the Temple Mount 
Source: Facebook page of Adnan Al-Damiri, the official spokesman of the PA Security Forces, July 22, 2017
 Posted text: “The Al-Aqsa Mosque is 144 dunams (i.e., approximately 35.6 acres) to which the occupation state has no political, religious, human, or moral right. The extremist settlers’ entry to the Al-Aqsa Mosque is what is encouraging the violence, killing, terror, blood, and hatred, and creating an atmosphere that is appropriate for natural responses of equal value (apparently refers to a terror attack that took place a day before the post, in which 3 Israelis were murdered; see note below –Ed.), and not a single one of the Palestinians who are defending the principle of their faith and their homeland. The myth of the alleged Temple has been refuted by all of the excavations and archaeologists, even the Jews among them (sic., ample archaeological evidence has proven the existence of the First and Second Temples). After dozens of excavations under the foundations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, they have not found a single [piece of] evidence for this lie. The occupation’s soldiers or its [metal detector] gates do not protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque (refers to metal detectors placed at the entrances to the Temple Mount following a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below –Ed.). [The Al-Aqsa Mosque’s] scholars, its young people, its women, and those carrying out Ribat (i.e., religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at its holy gates are the ones protecting it.”

The Palestinians know well the nature of this operation and who stands behind it, and know that its goals are not connected to Palestine, religion, or anything like this. This is despite the chatter on several satellite channels - which have made themselves bureaus for spreading everything bad, failing, or of evil intention - that has led to tragedies and will yet bring more severe tragedies..."
