The mother of Martyr (Shahid) Qusai Al-Amour (i.e., rioter killed while throwing rocks at an Israeli border police officer) visited Martyr Qusai Al-Amour [Summer] Camp, and said that it is an honor for her that the camp is named after her Martyr son.

Palestinian psychologist: Female terrorist hijackers and murderers carried out “wonderful acts of heroism”  
Source: Official Palestinian Authority TV, Aug. 4, 2017

 
Psychologist Jultan Hijazi: "After 1967, the role of women evolved from an institutional stage to a stage of struggle and self-sacrifice. We saw many examples of this, such as Laila Khaled (i.e., participated in 2 plane hijackings), Dalal Mughrabi (i.e., led murder of 37), and Fatima Barnawi (i.e., placed bomb in cinema) who was the first female Palestinian prisoner. These women, through their operations, recorded wonderful acts of heroism that the generations still see as an example... The women also had a role in the Al-Aqsa Intifada in 2015 (i.e., terror wave, 2015-2016), and we saw how women attacked the Israeli soldiers at checkpoints in stabbing operations... I want to mention the mother of Martyr Muhammad Farahat (i.e., murdered 5), a Martyr from Gaza. In 2002, I think, she led him to the gate of the Israeli settlement where he carried out a military operation and killed several soldiers (sic., murdered 5 students)... As a mother, I am incapable of doing what she did, but she constitutes an example for the struggle, and she succeeded in strengthening the national values... Women carry out a large role in the children's psychological preparation."

Headline: “Jerusalem won”
     “The occupation did not make do with closing the Al-Aqsa Mosque and attacking its gates, but also carried out acts of defacing and theft of historical manuscripts, sweeping away soil from around the Al-Aqsa Mosque, uprooting trees, and removing ancient stones from the Lion’s Gate and the alleys of the Old City [of Jerusalem], and it also allowed extremist settlers to invade the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque plazas (sic., Israel temporarily closed the Temple Mount following a terror attack there and reopened it with security measures; see note below).
However, thanks to the blood of those who died as Martyrs (Shahids), were wounded, arrested, beaten, and dragged on the ground and in the alleys of Jerusalem; thanks to the throats of those who opposed and remained until the light of morning; thanks to those who withstood the sounds of the bullets, the ambulances, the shouts, and the curses; and thanks to those who distributed food and water to the worshippers and those awaiting victory, Jerusalem won.”

The Front said in a statement published by its Jenin district branch that the occupation forces’ actions constitute a… crime whose purpose is to appropriate the Palestinian national memory and harm the supreme value of the ‘Martyr,’ which is rooted in the experience of our people and its national culture… In its statement, the Front promised that our people and its living forces will thwart these attempts, as has been proven by the popular stand throughout the homeland, the diaspora, and the foreign lands, by which all the streams of our people and its leading activists have expressed adherence to the value of the Martyrs and pride in their heritage and status, as all members of our people, throughout its generations, are proud of it. [The Front] emphasized that Khaled Nazzal, a member of its path, and all of the fighters for Palestine’s freedom and independence, will live on forever in the souls of the members of their people.”

Official PA TV narrator on Buy Time in Jerusalem:
"Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP) Central Committee member Omar Mahmoud Al-Qassem - one of the symbols of the national prisoners’ movement, and one of its central founders. During his life, he was an outstanding leader, a ferocious fighter, and a proud prisoner, and in his death he is an eternal Martyr... One of his acts of heroism [was] when an armed DFLP squad carried out the Ma’alot operation in the Galilee (i.e., terror attack, 26 murdered) and took [an Israeli] building and hostages. The [Israeli] prison management summoned Al-Qassem... and asked him to talk with the self-sacrificing fighters so they would turn themselves in and release the hostages... When he turned to his comrades, he said: ‘‘O comrades, I am Omar Al-Qassem. Carry out what you came for. Your enemy is treacherous.’’ Immediately after his few words, his comrades responded to the call and blew up the military academy (sic., Netiv Meir Elementary School) so that their souls would float as Martyrs above the skies of Palestine."

Op-ed in PA daily glorifies "Martyrs," condemns Israel for demanding monument to terrorist be taken down 
Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, June 25, 2017
Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily
        “One of the new examples of the persecution of the living (i.e., eternal) Martyrs as part of Israeli policy is the government of [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu’s threat to invade Jenin if the [Jenin] Municipality and [Jenin] District refuse to remove the Martyr (Shahid) Khaled Nazzal monument (i.e., terrorist, responsible for murder of 31)... It would appear that there are those who almost submitted to the Israeli extortion, on the pretext of profit-loss considerations... The Martyr Nazzal monument, which was restored by members of the Jenin branch of the Fatah Movement, reflects the conscious and responsible national will, which understands the severity of the structural flaw in the outlook of those who almost damaged the Palestinian narrative (i.e., who temporarily removed the monument due to Israeli pressure). [Those people] did not grasp the dangerous consequences of their wretched step when they acceded to Israel’s will and [the will] of those who act like Israelis, because they are short-sighted and did not see beyond their noses. Therefore, well done fighters of Fatah and the national activity factions, who mobilized to defend the heroic Martyr Khaled Nazzal monument.”

At the time, the Mandate police (sic., court) sentenced 26 Palestinians who took part in defending the Al-Buraq Wall (i.e., took part in the Hebron Massacre) to death. Later it lightened the sentences of 23 of them to life, but left the death sentence against Jamjoum, Hijazi, and Al-Zir in place… The day before their execution, the three heroes wrote a letter in which was stated: ‘Now, as we stand before the gates of eternity and give our souls for the holy homeland, precious Palestine, we ask of all Palestinians that our spilled blood and our souls – which will hover in the skies of this beloved land – not be forgotten.’”
