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.

Op-ed in official PA daily justifies murder of 3 as terrorist’s rage-filled response to Israel installing security measures at the Al-Aqsa Mosque following terror attack there

Excerpt of an op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

Headline: “[The village of] Kubar produces glory”
     “The village of Kubar is producing its glory today through resolve, challenge, and confrontation. Kubar has known no sleep or rest for nearly a week. This is because after young Omar Al-Abd (i.e., terrorist, murdered 3) felt a strong rage over what is happening at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and in Jerusalem (refers to metal detectors placed at the Temple Mount after a terror attack there on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israelis were murdered; see note below. 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.”

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.”

Fatah official explains Abbas condemned terror attack on Temple Mount “to protect Palestinian interests” – not out of sincerity 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 16, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Mattar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily, written in response to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ condemnation of a terror attack committed on the Temple Mount on July 14, 2017, in which 2 Israeli border policemen were murdered

       “[PA] President [Mahmoud] Abbas acted wisely and rationally when he expressed his opposition to acts of violence by any side, and particularly those that take place within houses of worship, because the Palestinian people’s interests are in need of his protection as the main one responsible for [protecting them]…
President Mahmoud Abbas was and is the bravest president and leader in the world. He does not worry that he will be condemned (i.e., by Palestinians) when the matter necessitates a clear and explicit position that will protect the people’s interests, because the leadership is interested in pushing back the threats and not drawing them close by taking impulsive positions."

Following terror attack, Fatah calls on Palestinians to go to Al-Aqsa Mosque to defend it from Israel

Headline: “Wall-to-wall national and Arab condemnation of the occupation’s closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque”
     “The Fatah Movement called on the Palestinians to go up to the Al-Aqsa Mosque following Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin Netanyahu’s] decision to completely close the mosque yesterday (Friday) [July 14, 2017] (the Temple Mount was closed in response to a terror attack at the site that morning in which 2 Israeli border policemen were murdered, see note below. It was reopened on Sunday, July 16, 2017 –Ed.).
The movement said in a press statement yesterday: ‘The Israeli occupation and the systematic Israeli policy of oppressing the members of our Palestinian people, particularly in Jerusalem, preventing the free access of believers to the holy sites, and the repeating invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas by settlers are the root of the problem. They are the beginning of the endless cycle of violence, and they are the factor that necessarily leads to Palestinians being murdered over and over in cold blood, with no consideration for the sanctity of the site and the sanctity of life...’”

      “Yesterday [July 14, 2017] a phone call was held between [PA] President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The president expressed his strong opposition to and his condemnations of the event that took place at the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque (i.e., the murder of 2 Israeli Druze border policemen by 3 Israeli Arab terrorists who were subsequently killed, on July 14, 2017), and also emphasized that he opposes any event of violence from any side, particularly at places of worship.
President Abbas demanded to cancel Israel’s closure of the Al-Aqsa Mosque to worshippers, and warned of the consequences of these steps and against any party taking advantage of them in order to change the religious and historical status quo of the holy sites. Netanyahu emphasized that the status quo at the holy sites will not change. He also demanded that all sides calm things down.”

      “On the third Friday in the month of Ramadan [June 16, 2017] the waiting did not last long. A burst of bullets split the tense atmosphere, and after it the sirens of police vehicles were heard. Suddenly many policemen in civilian clothes appeared and went toward Damascus Gate. Many young people got up and went toward Damascus Gate to check what is happening, but to no avail, as the occupation’s blockades prevented their arrival. After a few minutes an additional burst of bullets caused panic and confirmed that the third Friday of Ramadan would end with blood on the sidewalks of Jerusalem… While four young [Palestinians] lay prone on the sidewalk (i.e., 3 of them terrorists killed during their terror attack) they evacuated the wounded female soldier, whose death was published shortly after. They treated the young [Palestinians] – three of whom later died as Martyrs (Shahids) – with indifference… The smell of blood will continue to surround the holy and occupied city [of Jerusalem] until dawn. There are young people that wanted to say a clear ‘No!’ to the occupation in their way.”
